Welcome to the web page for the Academy of Music Performance (AMP) Video Violin Lessons. Through my years as a violinist, coupled with a Private Music Conservatory Education and the experience of 12 years of one-on-one teaching, I know how to present clear and easy to follow instructions to my students. The Violin Videos are based from the same methods of technique and performance that I use in my School of Music.
Each series contains several DVDs jam packed with hours of studio instruction; the equivalent of over a year's worth of private lessons. The entire series utilizes many close-ups and a variety of viewing angles to demonstrate proper hand position, finger patterns, and finger setting techniques. Our unique way of presenting material in the videos will enable the viewer to see both the fingering hand in detail and the on-screen musical notation for an easy to follow instruction. In addition to the learning sections, which teach how to count, read note names, and use specific finger patterns, students are also provided with bonus material of both a slow performance and one at 'performance tempo' for the song or technique learned. Interactive DVD menus allow students to quickly access any part of the lesson at the touch of a button.
It is my sincere hope that students find the AMP video lessons not only educational, but a source of inspiration and fun with the violin.
Sincerely, Mrs. Bridgette Seidel
