ABOUT THIS COURSE
The Perfect vibrato course is an in-depth structured lesson plan for learning the fundamentals of vibrato. Being able to use vibrato effectively in violin pieces is one of the most exciting and rewarding parts of a violin player's sound production. This course includes all the techniques and fundamentals that I've taught private students over the years that is guaranteed to give you success with learning vibrato in four weeks. This mini-course covers the first week of the course for FREE.
When learning a new skill it is common for people to jump ahead of themselves and attempt to learn a skill before mastering the basics. Why? Because we are impatient and lack the foresight to take baby steps towards an end goal. Do yourself a favor and LEARN THE FOUNDATIONS FIRST. This will prevent you from picking up any bad habits, and will help attain the level of skill you want more quickly and effectively.
The goal of this course is to be easily approachable for complete beginners, and also provide value for more experienced students. Get ready to practice!

Frequently Asked Questions
"Hi Mike - I'm a serious beginner violinist (and by day a director/writer/actor of movies and TV shows) and I've scoured many sources and your style of teaching is by far my favorite ... I'm wanting to put some time (and money) into taking my skills to the next level, and I want you to be my teacher!" - David Wain
"I'm a 44 year old family doctor who has always loved the violin but have never had the time to invest in learning…only watching. Now I'm learning. It's a great and inexpensive hobby and it's even become a great way to spend time with my 4 children. Of all the sources I've used so far, I've enjoyed yours the most. Concise yet thorough. Keep up the great work. I really appreciate your help." - Mark
"I am such a huge fan of your content because it is so much different than every other teacher I've seen online. I've been playing the violin for about 6 or 7 years now and I felt like I hit a wall in my progression. I'm in college so I don't have a lot of time to study techniques shown in a book. Your videos were so instrumental in progressing my skills and expanding my playing ability in an extremely speedy fashion. Your explanations are also very clear and concise and I love you always focus on the nitty gritty, considering that's where a lot of violin teachers lack in their explanations." - Beth Wheatley
