News Letter August 2016
August News Letter: Free webinar, The Strad review and more.
Welcome to our August News Letter.
Here at Pro-Am Strings we have been hard at work to prepare for the school year ahead. Read on about what’s to come..
The Technique DVD’s were reviewed in The Strad this month. I was delighted by the positive feedback. A few quotes:
“The product of a unique blend of personal experience and reflection.”
“The technical requirements are clearly thought through and the focus remains on the needs of the learners, who are invited to take their own course through the many resources provided.”
“Body-friendly advice without the dogma that so often dogs this kind of resource.”

We will be hosting two webinars about Legato bowing later this week:
Thursday 11th August at 8pm BST and
Friday 12th August at 11am BST
Come and join us if you like! We will be discussing projection of sound, straight bowing, dynamics among other things. Join in with your instrument while you watch. All player levels welcome on violin, viola and cello.
Did you know we post many different articles, videos and other string related things on social media? Follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
We have been experimenting with Facebook Live recently. The next Facebook Live session is planned for Wednesday 17th August at 2pm BST. Do catch up with me there. I shall be discussing why we hold the bow the way we do. Suitable for all levels of players on violin and viola. No registration needed for this event; meet me on the Pro-Am Strings Facebook page.
…and finally, a sneak preview of what’s to come. We will shortly release a video trailer about what we do… watch this space!
