Unique method of Violin virtuoso & teacher Alexander Shonert

«How to get firm staccato up and down in 1 master-class»

Hello my dear colleagues who play the violin,

I would like to offer you my unique violin master classes which will help you to find the shortest way to play firm staccato up and down. It requires only 1 or 2 days. The biggest problem is that when the violinist plays firm staccato the muscles of the right hand become convulsed and uncontrollable especially on the down-bow. It can prevent you from playing the violin properly and make the sound of your music worse. So I have found the special method which helps to relax right hand in order to make its muscles work in cooperation so that one group of muscles smoothly turns to another one.
