What instruments do you offer classes on? Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Horn, Oboe, Flute and Harpsichord.

How long do sessions last? 20-40 mins

Do I need any previous experience on period instruments? It would help, but it is not a requirement. Tell us about you and what you’d like to work on on the form below.

What equipment do I need? You will need a computer, ipad or similar tablet, or a phone. These need to have a camera and microphone that can connect to Zoom meetings.

How much does it cost? The scheme is made possible through the generous support of The English Concert in America and many individuals. It is provided free of charge but if you feel you are able to make a donation, we would naturally welcome your support. We also hope you can send some feedback so we can share it with those that have contributed to our musicians’ fund without whom this initiative would be impossible.
