Intonation Guide for Violinists
A system on how to achieve security of intonation on the violin
Do you struggle with intonation? I bet the answer is somewhere between yes and sometimes, if you are a violinist.
Every violinist struggles with intonation to some degree. But intonation insecurities can be minimized with the right practice tools and techniques.
After this course you will have:
- A clear guideline to improve your intonation with every practice session, regardless of your skill level and repertoire you play
- A better understanding how to navigate on the fingerboard with confidence through a clearly defined posture for the left hand
- A proven concept to organize intervals and shifts, so that you can reproduce good intonation not only in the practice room with ease, but even under pressure, like on stage
In the Intonation Guide for Violinists I will give you my best tips and exercises in 11 video-lessons to quickly and permanently improve your intonation. Also I support you with downloadable and printable sheet music exercises.
All the concepts and tricks, that I will tell you in the Intonation Guide for Violinists, I have accumulated over years of learning and teaching the violin. They have served me and my students well for over a decade. As a professional violinist they are a backbone in my practice to prepare my repertoire efficiently and deliver on stage.
Your playing will improve permanently!
Simon Streuff graduated from the Hannover Music University in 2011. His teaching experience reaches back to the year 2004, where he helped out his first violin teacher through parental leave. After his graduation he taught students from the age of 5 until the age of 85 from total beginner to advanced player. Also he engaged in string classes, where he developed new concepts with a team of teachers about educating larger groups of beginner string players. He learned his craft from teachers who were not only heavily committed to violin playing but also to its pedagogy. Simon Streuff also attended several Master Classes and performs regularly on stage. His YouTube Channel with educational content about the violin counts around 10,000 subscribers and growing.
"This is a really great course! It’s made a difference to my intonation already, after only a few days! Putting these techniques into my practice is straightforward as all I need to do is go back to the videos. The clear demonstrations have helped make some tricky concepts easy to understand, I think that’s why it’s made a difference so quickly. If I follow your pointers every day, it will become second nature, and make me a better player! Thank you, Simon!"
"I went through the course twice this weekend. You dig into the weeds pretty thoroughly, and the course is well worth the cost. I'll be reviewing the entire thing again this week. I'm 'just' a fiddle player, not a classical violinist, but I value good intonation; it comes with its own [subtle] chords at no extra charge."
