ENTER THE VIOLYMPICS NOW


You’ll become the musician you've always wanted to be!

Nathan’s dedication to teaching is something that is so rare, so special, and so inspiring. In little to no time, many things on the violin became easier for me. Working with him, your standards of violin playing will be pushed higher and higher. You will become the musician you've always wanted to be.” 

Lisa Kim


“I wish I could express the beauty I hear in my head, without tension and technique always tripping me up…!”

 If that feels familiar ⤴

Then this is for you!

But first, kudos to you, my friend – you have musical dreams in your heart!

Whether you’re a professional orchestra player, looking to hone your skills, and uplevel your performance ...

Or you’re in school right now, with an eye on those big auditions on the horizon ...

Or you’re in this purely for love, maybe coming back to playing after injury, or years of other obligations (or even discovering this new joy for the very first time!)

The fact you're here tells me you have music in your soul – and you’re serious about learning to play at your highest possible level. Fantastic!


But … even though you love it, let’s be honest

it’s *so* hard to stay motivated

(even in the best of times!)

Everything has to line up just right.

→ You need plenty of time

→ A great teacher and regular lessons

→ A detailed practice plan

→ And the willpower to stick to it every day

And when all those things don’t come together?

It’s easy to feel your focus waning ...

To let your practice strategies get stale, or slip altogether ...

To feel distracted, frustrated, and utterly deflated – as you seem to go one step forward (occasionally!), and then two or three back  ...

You blame yourself … and end up right back where you started.


But here’s the good news

It doesn’t have to be like that!

What if there were a simple way to not only …

discover how to practice so efficiently, you’ll learn new music faster than ever before (and with way less effort!)

But also …

master all those technical troubles that have been nagging at you forever (yes, you *can* finally nail that vibrato!)

AND ...

learn how to carry all your progress from the practice room to the stage, without nerves and anxiety wrecking your performance!

All THIS

is not just possible, it’s yours to claim  

when you have a super-efficient, personalized practice routine focused on the right things … so you can learn to perform better than ever, with confidence and ease, every time you open the case (even with an audience staring right at you!)

I’M READY TO ENTER THE VIOLYMPICS!


Jessica’s making progress in record time! ⤵

I don’t feel like I’m spinning my wheels anymore

“Since working with Nathan, I've learned how to make more progress in less time. Things that seemed insurmountable a few months ago feel possible with Nathan's practical solutions-focused approach. I feel more confident when I practice because I'm seeing consistent progress, not feeling like I'm just spinning my wheels.”

Jessica Stinson


But before I tell you more about the paradigm-shifting program that could transform your playing ...

Let’s take a step back and work out why you’ve not yet made the progress you dreamed of at the start.

3 key struggles holding you back

#1 “I don’t know what to practice, or how much (and right now, I have almost *zero* motivation!) so there’s no consistent progress ...”

Maybe losing your performing gigs and summer plans, even your everyday routine, because of C-19, has been hard to manage mentally – and practice goals have kind of slipped off the agenda …

Or perhaps you have kept practicing, and some days it’s super-exciting to feel like you’ve really got it! Then the next day it’s all gone ...

Could be that with no teacher to guide you now, it feels impossible to figure out what scales, etudes, and studies you need to strengthen your playing – what if you’re focusing on completely the wrong things?!

I get it, believe me! 

Back when I got my first orchestral job in Saint Paul, Minnesota, I’d sometimes practice all day – just picking up whatever music I felt like…

Then I’d come back to it the next day and feel like I’d gotten nowhere – maybe even gone backward! I got so bored and frustrated because I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted.

I just had no idea how to focus on the right things, to practice efficiently!

But there is a solution ...

What you need is a clear, daily practice plan, personalized to your goals, showing you exactly what to work on, for how long and in what combination – so you can structure your practice for fast and consistent progress, day by day.

#2 “I just don’t have the technique to execute what I want.”

So many technical troubles seem to trip you up – intonation slips, crunchy chords – and you just can’t seem to get the clarity you crave ...

Perhaps your spiccato feels more like soggy spaghetti, or your vibrato is cramped and uneven – if only you could lose the tension and let it flow like crystal water ...

Maybe your violin just never sounds quite how you want it to – you long to be able truly express yourself and deliver the music exactly as you imagine it!

We all struggle to master these techniques, and when you no longer have a regular teacher to guide you, it’s easy to find yourself stuck in unhelpful habits that not only hinder your playing, but can even lead to injury!

But believe me, no matter how long you’ve tussled with a particular technique, you *can* learn to play with more finesse, nuance and control … and have total command over your sound and phrasing!

What you need is regular teaching and exercises to help master your skills, learn new techniques, and play with a richer, smoother, more dependable and beautiful sound than ever before.

#3 “When I do make progress in practice, it just disappears on stage”

You finally nail it in the practice room! Then on stage, the tension trashes it all … your bow gets bouncy, your shifts are shaky, and the rookie errors are excruciating ...

Perhaps you’re aching to audition more, but your fear of failure always seems to sabotage both practice and performance ...

Could be an injury has set you back, or a long break from playing. Years ago, you never stressed, you just played! If only you could rediscover that ease and confidence!

There’s nothing more discouraging than not being able to carry through your progress when you’re playing “under fire”!

The reason this happens, for so many of us, is we’re practicing for practice, not practicing for performance. So we’re not training our minds for performance mode. 

But trust me, you *can* unlearn that pattern ...

What you need is a proven practice system to help you shift your mindset, to be in performance mode even when you're ‘just’ practicing – so that when it really counts, the nerves are no more, and you play like a dream. Every time.


Just imagine if you could …

  • get a practice plan that practically guaranteed rapid, effortless progress (and it was fun too!)
  • end your frustrations with murky tone, sticky trills, or bow shakes ... and finally play with all the beauty you hear in your head
  • learn to play with the ease and confidence you crave – even with an audience!

No need to imagine!
All this can be yours – when you enter the Violympic Games ...

where I teach the high-level techniques and mindset strategies that have helped thousands of professional (and soon-to-be-pro) violinists transform their playing – 

so they perform at their very best, with effortless confidence, every time they open the case.

OK, that’s a bold claim! ⤴

How do you know I’m really up to the job?


Hey, in case we haven’t met …

I'm Nathan Cole

First Associate Concertmaster of the LA Phil, and for the past 15 years, I've been helping serious violinists just like you realize their full potential. 

My parents were professional musicians, but they never pushed me to spend all day practicing. I did that to myself once I got to conservatory and saw that I had some catching up to do!

But there was a problem – even though I was practicing for longer, I wasn’t learning the difficult rep any faster. I was inconsistent day to day, and worst of all, from the practice room to the stage – which felt heartbreaking, after all those hours of work!

That’s when I realized, if I ever wanted to find out how far I could take my playing, I had to develop my own easy, efficient practice method, to give me steady gains that would stay with me under pressure. And it had to fit around my full-time orchestra job!

Since then, I’ve been developing and sharing my Practice Makes Performance™ system with professional (and soon-to-be-pro) violinists – and I’m so excited to share it with you now, alongside in-depth training on those pesky techniques that elude so many of us (looking at you, spongy spiccato!), inside the Violympic Games!

Are you ready to play?

Let’s get started ⤵


presenting

THE FIRST EVER

Violympic Games

Learn to play with effortless joy and confidence, *every time* you pick up your instrument (even under pressure!)

Inside the Violympics ...

1 You’ll learn new techniques and exercises

Do you want to finally master that spiccato? Now’s your chance.

Need a reliable scale routine? You can have mine!

Is shifting a problem? Let’s start fixing that right away.

2 You’ll get a daily practice plan

Just like going to the gym, knowing the exercises isn’t enough – you have to know what to work on, for how long and in what combination.

So as we go through a variety of pieces during our Violympic Events, I’ll show you how to structure your practice day by day.

3 You’ll learn to play your best when it counts

Every one of us remembers a time on stage when it all fell apart, and we just wanted to kick ourselves afterwards. “I just had it almost perfect in practice an hour ago!!”

I’ll show you how to carry your work confidently from the practice room to the stage, with my own Practice Makes Performance™  system.

In short … The Violympic Games will give you everything you need to make the most of your playing this summer – 

and be way ahead of the pack when concerts and auditions come back


Jack now has the targeted practice plan to get results! ⤵

Before, I’d spend hours practicing … but it wasn't targeted

“Nathan's program helped me so much immediately. Before, I’d spend hours practicing but it wasn't targeted enough to see the kind of improvements that I needed. Nathan's technique videos and etude recommendations helped me focus on the skills I needed to improve the most. He has a special ability to pinpoint and distill the most essential information incredibly clearly. 

I always find myself coming away feeling that I have the right tools and confident that if I put in the work, I'm going to see the results I want. That's the best feeling.”

Jack McFadden Talbot, Second Violin, Louisville Orchestra


So what exactly happens in the Violympics?

(and how can you WIN?!)

First, here’s how it works ...

All the fun and games will happen over 12 weeks, starting June 1 – there’ll be six separate Violympic Events, each taking 2 weeks.

During the first week of each Event, we’ll focus on particular techniques, with special video trainings and exercises, available through your personal Violympian online portal.

Then, at the start of the second week, we’ll reveal a piece of music that builds on the techniques learned in the first part of the Event.

You’ll have 5 days to work on the piece, using all you’ve learned – and you can send in a video recording of you performing it at the end of the Event!

During each Event, you can earn points for taking part – for completing the exercises and journaling about your progress, for sharing your thoughts and wins in the special Violympic Village FB community and on other social media, and for submitting your performance video!

Winners and prizes will be announced for each Event, with a Gold Medal Winner in the last Event (which will bring together everything you’ve learned throughout the Games!)

Of course, *every* Violympian will be a Winner – because whether you’re on the Points Leader Board or not, you’ll be getting the techniques, tools and practice strategies *you* need to take your playing to a whole new level!

Event 1: Opening ceremonies plus a classic trio: physical setup, tone production, and intonation

Event 2: Not just your own two hands: hand frame and key bow strokes

Event 3: These two go together: shifting and rhythm games

Event 4: Virtuoso building blocks: scales, arpeggios, and vibrato

Event 5: Extending your range: double stops and trills

Event 6: Bringing it together: Grand Finale challenge plus closing ceremonies and medals


Second, the Violympics is your chance to ...

Stop leaving your best playing in the practice room – with the

Practice Make Performance™
System for Success

After all the years you've spent taking lessons, refining your technique, pursuing degrees … you'd think that performing would feel easy and automatic.


But the truth is, without the right practice system, personalized for you, the progress you make behind closed doors can all too easily disappear on stage.

Which is not only heartbreaking – it can be downright humiliating, am I right?!

That’s exactly why I developed my
Practice Makes Performance™ system.

Crack the code to effortless on-stage confidence with the three elements of Practice Makes Performance™:

1 Mindset – learn to treat every bow stroke in practice as if you’re already in performance

2 Tools – get the specific scales, etudes, and studies you need to strengthen your playing right now

3 Techniques – combine the physical with your mental game for truly lasting results

Inside The Violympics, I’ll help you create a tailored practice plan using my Practice Makes Performance™ system, to elevate your performance beyond anything you’ve achieved so far!


Third, you get to join our club …

As a fully qualified Violympian, you’ll be invited to join our exclusive Facebook community.

Think of it as having a private suite in the
Violympic Village!

Here you’ll get to rub virtual shoulders with all your fellow Violympians and share ideas, inspiration and support as you build your skills and confidence through the six Violympic Events!

(But if Facebook isn’t your thing, no problem! You’ll still get ALL the amazing value from The Violympics, without having to set a virtual foot inside the Village!)


And fourth ...

When you enter the Violympics, you’ll also get this amazing BONUS to slip into your kit bag ⤵

Not sure online learning is worth the investment? Ask Kerstin! ⤵

If you have the chance to work with Nathan, take it!

“As someone who has received instruction from Nathan both online and in person, I can say they've been equally valuable. If you have the opportunity to work with Nathan, take it and run with it. Nathan really is incredible and I have grown so much in my time working with him.”

Kerstin Tenney


If you see yourself as a less experienced violinist –

at this point, maybe you’re thinking …

“Sounds great Nathan, but what if I just don’t have what it takes to make the most of the Violympic Games?”

You’re thinking …

“I’ve only been playing for a few years”

Or … “My best playing days are behind me”

Or maybe … “I didn’t go to conservatory, or have the right teachers”

Or even … “I just don’t think I have the talent to get to the next level!”

I get it, trust me. I work with people all the time who have felt exactly as you’re feeling right now.

That’s why the mindset strategies, tools and techniques I teach as part of the Practice Makes Performance™ system are so powerful – they work for everyone, no matter what stage of the game you’re at. Because no matter your level, it’s the same fundamental skills that need to be learned and reinforced. 

And if you are relatively inexperienced, or feel you’ll never be able to play like the pros you admire – the Practice Makes Performance™ system is the *perfect* way to get you on the fastest path to those elusive higher performance levels!

Just like a personal fitness coach, I provide carefully designed plans so that if an exercise or move is new, you do it slowly at first and for a short amount of time, without combining it with other moves.

Then, as things get more comfortable, you up the tempo, play for longer, and use techniques in combination. But the focus is always on form and ease rather than tempo or complexity. 

So my Practice Makes Performance™ system means you get to study the most important skills one at a time, while learning how they lead to more advanced techniques.

On the other hand, if you’re on the more advanced end of the vio-spectrum –

right now, you could be thinking … 

“Sure Nathan, but I’ve been playing and performing for so many years – The Violympics isn’t for me, right?”

You know, I’d been playing at a top level for years, and yet so often I’d still come off stage shaking with disappointment in my performance!

It wasn’t my effort or even my inspiration that was lacking … but *something* was failing me along the way. Some fundamental “weakest link” was letting me down, time after time (and probably more than one weak link, if I’m honest!)

It was only when I stripped everything back and started to develop my Practice Makes Performance™ system that I was able to reveal those weak points – and then work on them until my complete performance flowed with full force, every time I stepped on stage. 

Inside The Violympics, we’ll uncover *your* weakest links – and by combining the mindset strategies, tools and techniques of the Practice Makes Performance™ system, we’ll work together to make sure they’ll no longer fail you under pressure. 

You'll learn how to execute even the most complex passages without tension or trauma – so you’re free to focus on the musical message, just as you hear it in your head ... 

And start winning those big auditions you dream of.


Of course, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, an investment like The Violympics might feel like a stretch, especially at a time when the world seems to have turned upside down …

But isn’t this unique, open summer the *perfect* time to invest in yourself – in your future skills and happiness?

And finally play with the soul-soaring beauty, ease and joy you feel in your heart

(audience or no!)


Shirie thought she just wasn't good enough ... ⤵

Nathan gives you the tools to figure out what's wrong + fix it!

“When I was in music school, I just thought I wasn't good enough or I hadn't practiced enough. But Nathan gives you the tools to figure out what's wrong and fix it rather than just playing it through a million times. He's devoted to his students and he's a fantastic teacher. Since working with Nathan, my playing is much clearer, more precise, and more in tune.”

Shirie Leng, Anesthesiologist and Principal Second Violin, Longwood Symphony Orchestra


Still not sure if The Violympics is for you?

It’s really important to me that you only enter the Violympic Games if the program is not just “right” for you, but *perfect* for you. So let me help you choose →

If you relate to any of these, then The Violympics is NOT for you …

You have no real interest in improving your playing – you’re perfectly happy as you are, fiddling away. (Hey, no judgment! If that’s where you are, that’s totally cool – enjoy!)

You’re looking for a “quick fix” to magically morph you into a virtuoso, without a drop of elbow grease. (The Practice Makes Performance ™ system will show you how to make  rapid progress with incredible ease and efficiency – but you will still need to put in some practice to make it happen!)

You always play with super-confidence and charisma (even if Heifetz himself was in the audience!), you learn new music at a single glance, and you’re 100% happy with your tone colors, finger speed, phrasing … (Congrats! And honestly, you don’t need The Violympics!)

On the other hand, if ...

you want so badly to nail that next audition or performance, but you’re afraid your nerves and tension will let you down again … just as they have so many times before

Or ...

you seem to spend hours in the practice room (sidenote: so exhausting!) but the next day it’s all gone, and it’s breaking your heart to be making so little progress ... maybe you just don’t have what it takes after all …?! (← Trust me, you *do*!)

Or even ...

you’re struggling to get back into shape after injury, or years away from your instrument, and you’d love a fun, collaborative “crash course” to get you back on track as efficiently as possible – before it’s “too late” ...

… then the Violympic Games is
PERFECT for you!

And now it’s up to YOU to take that next step!


Lynn is so happy she took that step ⤵

Working with Nathan will transform your playing!

“Nathan's encyclopedic knowledge of repertoire is matched only by his encyclopedic knowledge of technical solutions on the instrument. Working with Nathan will transform your playing as it did for me. I look forward to reaping those benefits as I move forward in my career.”

Still got questions?

Great! I have answers …

01 I’m not as experienced (or as talented?!) as many people – is this program for me?

YES, absolutely! The mindset strategies, tools and techniques I teach as part of the Practice Makes Performance™ system are so powerful because they work for everyone, no matter what stage of the game you’re at.

So even if you’re relatively new to the violin, or returning after injury or a break from your instrument, or for any reason you feel you’ll never be able to play like the pros you admire – The Violympics is the *perfect* program to get you on a faster path to those elusive higher performance levels.

(And by the way, *so many* musicians I’ve worked with – even top professionals – worried they didn’t have the talent or schooling to reach the levels others could achieve. But in fact all they needed was the right practice system, tools and techniques – and now they’re hitting the high notes of their careers with the best of them!)

02 I’m a professional performer with many years’ experience – is this program for me?

YES! Even if you’re already playing at the highest levels – if you have any desire to banish that sabotaging tension from your performance …

Or develop the kind of bow arm that gives you total command over your sound and phrasing …

You want the ability to learn new music with almost supernatural speed and efficiency ...

Or you just want to stop the heartache of sacrificing hours in the practice room, for *so little* consistent and reliable progress  …

Then The Violympics is the program for you!

03 Is it even possible to improve my playing online - without an in-the-room teacher to pick up every rogue move?

I’ve been helping violin players (professionals, beginners, and everyone in between!), to improve their practice and performance online for about 10 years now – through my online courses and programs, and my YouTube channel and blog. And the progress my students have enjoyed has been so gratifying.

For example, Jessica Stinson shared:

“I was hesitant about an online only teaching format, but Nathan understands the medium extremely well and goes above and beyond to support his students.”

I know for many it may still seem strange to have your teacher on a monitor instead of in the room with you – but I can promise you, it works! You’ll be amazed at the progress we make together.

04 What equipment will I need to be part of The Violympics?

You’ll need your instrument of course (and violas are super welcome, as well as violins by the way!) – and you’ll need a computer and a stable internet connection to access the video training sessions and resources. 

If you want to earn points for submitting videos of your performances, you’ll also need some way to record and upload your videos. That can be as simple as a video-enabled smartphone.

If you prefer to print out the sheet music for each Event challenge rather than play from a monitor, you’ll need a printer too.

Apart from that – all you’ll need is yourself, your energy and your love of music!

05 I play viola, not violin – can I enter The Violympics?

Absolutely! And you’ll be in good company – many of our Vio-athletes will be violists! 

For every one of the six challenge pieces, we’ll provide a viola version in addition to the violin version. The exercises and assignments will be for violin, but all are easy to play down a fifth, so we have you covered!

06 What happens after I sign up?

As soon as you click to ‘Enter the Violympics’, you’ll be taken to a sign-up page, where we’ll ask for your payment details.

As soon as possible after that, we’ll send you a welcome email to say Congrats! You’ll also get your login details for The Violympics, which you can use right away to access the Violympians’ online portal. There, you’ll find your Quick Start Tech Setup Guide bonus immediately, plus your instructions for how the 12 weeks will run, and how you can earn points to win prizes!

The Violympians’ online portal is also where all the training sessions and resources (including sheet music) will be released for you, as each Event begins.

Plus, you’ll be invited to join us in the Violympic Village Facebook community, where you can introduce yourself right away and start getting to know your fellow Violympians! 

07 Do I HAVE to join the Facebook group?

No, certainly not!

If Facebook is not your jam, no problem at all. Joining the Violympic Village is completely optional – you’ll still get ALL the amazing value and progress from the Violympic Games through your Violympians’ online portal!

08 What happens if I change my mind?

If you don’t feel blown away by the amazing experience inside The Violympics, and don’t feel you’ve made great progress in the very first 2-week Event … all you have to do is email us at contact@natesviolin.com within 30 days of joining, and we’ll make sure you get a full refund – no questions asked!

That’s our no-quibble, cast-iron, 30-day money back guarantee to you. :)

So you see, there really is no risk in entering the Games! (And absolutely no shame if you feel it’s not for you!)

09 How will I get the training?

As soon as you log in to your Violympians’ online portal on June 1, you’ll find a welcome video from me, telling you all about how the Violympic Games will work, and how best to use the trainings and resources.

Your Violympians’ portal is also where you’ll find videos and other resources for each of the Events, revealed at the start of each 2-week Event period – you can watch and rewatch the videos and access the resources whenever you want, 24/7.

The sheet music and demo video of the Challenge piece for each Event will be revealed during the second week of the period, so it’s a surprise for everyone!

All additional live trainings will also be recorded, of course, and they'll be available for you inside your Violympians’ portal too.

And remember, you get lifetime access to The Violympics trainings and resources – they’re yours forever! So you can keep practicing, having fun and taking your playing to ever higher levels for years to come!

10 How does the points and prize system work?

I’ll be providing detailed instructions about the points system inside Violympians’ online portal, as well as giving all technical details of how the program will work.

Basically, you can earn points for every aspect of taking part! 

  • for completing the trainings and exercises
  • for journaling about your progress
  • for sharing your thoughts and wins in the Violympic Village FB community, and on other social media, if you choose to (totally optional, of course!)
  • and for submitting a video of you performing the Challenge piece at the end of each 2-week Event! (You’ll submit your videos on YouTube – don’t worry, I’ll make sure it’s super easy for you even if you’re not tech-savvy, and your videos can be totally private.)

The Violympian who earns the most points in each Event will be awarded a Gold medal 🏅 – and the winner of the final, ‘round-up’ Event will be the overall Violympic Champion! (Grand prize to be announced …!)

Sidenote: The points-and-prizes element of the Violympic Games is simply there to add a bit of competitive fun and motivation – if you don’t want the hassle of tallying up your ‘earnings’ each day, that’s absolutely fine! You’ll still make amazing progress, and be playing better than you’d ever have imagined by the end of the Games, even if you don’t record a single point!

11 Seems like quite a lot of money – will it really be worth it?

I totally understand that an investment like the Violympics might feel like a stretch, especially right now, when the world seems to have turned upside down.

But at some point, things will settle down again. People will be out and about. Concerts and auditions will come back.

When that happens, how much will it be worth to you to be able to step out on a stage and play with more ease and confidence than you ever dreamed possible?

Or if you’re planning on playing purely for yourself, how great would it feel to finally be able to play with the soul-soaring beauty and joy you feel in your heart?

When you invest in yourself and become a Violympian, the cost is just over $9/day, for the 12 weeks of the program. 

That’s about the same as buying a couple of fancy coffees a day.

When you think about that ... isn’t this investment in your future skills and happiness bound to be worth it? 

And isn’t this unique, open summer the *perfect* time for that investment?

12 How much time will it take each day?

For each event, I’ll teach a training on your practice assignments and another training on the challenge piece. On top of that, you’ll want to spend about 30-minutes each day practicing this material in order to see the incredible results I know are waiting for you.

You’ll also need to set aside time to learn and practice the challenge piece in the second week of each Event.

Ultimately, the amount of time you spend in The Violympics is completely up to you. But I can tell you this – as you learn and put into action the principles of the Practice Makes Performance ™ system, you’ll find yourself making far more progress in way less time than you’d ever imagined possible!


It’s time to choose ....

You know, the truth is maybe 8 out of 10 musicians reading this (yes, even the ones who’ve got this far!) will purse their lips and “think about it”, maybe bookmark the page ...

And then carry on hoping their playing will somehow transform one day – without them actually having to change anything.

3 months from now, they’ll still be ...

❌ struggling to know what to practice, or how much, and making no consistent progress ...

❌  battling to master the techniques they need to truly express the music as they long to ...

❌ cringing in frustration as fear and tension sabotage their playing, yet again ...

instead of playing with beautiful, effortless joy, and the confidence to crush every performance – even under pressure!

The harsh reality is, if you don’t choose to take action and make a change, then how can you expect things to improve?


If you keep doing exactly what you’ve been doing for the past year, 5 years, or 20 years and your playing hasn’t shifted off that plateau...  

how can you expect the next year, 5 years, or 20 years to be any different?

I’m not trying to make you feel bad, I promise!

I just know that sometimes the best way to improve things in life is to understand …

You want something more.

And what better time to invest in yourself and reach for that higher level than now – during this weird and uncertain time when your summer plans are likely on hold anyway, and maybe you find yourself with extra time on your hands?

Because let’s be honest.

Those who make the most of this summer will be the ones best equipped to compete when the concerts and auditions come back ...

So the risk you’re facing right now is not the investment of time or money …

The real risk is doing nothing with this unique opportunity.

I’ve been where you are in your practice.

I understand where you’re at, what you’re up against ... 

AND I know what’s possible. 

That’s why I’m offering you the exact Practice Makes Performance™ system and technical teaching that I know will take you from where you are now to where you want to be.

The Violympic Games is the perfect program to help you make the shift 

… from frustrated music lover, forever discouraged at how little progress your practice efforts seem to bring ...

…  to confident, super-proficient player, performing with elevated richness, finesse and control every time you open the case (and nailing auditions, left and right!)

Trust me – this is your moment to

Go For Gold.

Let the games begin!!
