I've recently returned from an exciting weekend workshop in Portland, OR, where I trained a group of local teachers in the Sassmannshaus Tradition for violin playing. We had a wonderful time discussing violin pedagogy and going over the details found in each of the Sassmannshaus Tradition method books. If you're interested in setting up a workshop in your community, please let us know.
Consider giving the gift of music during this holiday season. We have live lessons available on ViolinMasterclass.com, which would make a great gift! If you are in the Cincinnati area, our beginner program Sassmannshaus Tradition has moved to UC Blue Ash and has a few spaces open in violin, viola and cello starting January 14. Reply to this email or call 513-556-2637 for more information.
Bärenreiter has recently released a variety of great violin pieces that would also make for wonderful gift-giving:

Finally, we are happy to announce the 10th anniversary season of the Great Wall International Music Academy will be taking place in Beijing July 16-August 5, 2014. Applications are being accepted now.

Teacher Certification Workshop in Greater Portland, OR
The Sassmannshaus Tradition method has been Europe's best selling beginning violin method for over 30 years. It is now available in English, and the translator and co-author Prof. Kurt Sassmannshaus is offering this teacher training seminar to show how the unique aspects of this method can be taught. The method is groundbreaking in its approach for very young children. It features large print and teaches note reading from the first lesson. It focuses on early position playing and introduces advanced left hand and bow technique with familiar musical material. The method is now available for violin, viola, cello, and double bass, and teachers of all instruments are invited to attend. You can become a certified teacher by attending this intensive weekend workshop at Marylhurst University.
Check with your employer. Some employers cover the cost of this training. Purchase your own copy of all four volumes of The Sassmannshaus Tradition Violin Method and bring them to the seminar with you. You will need to bring your instrument to the training as well. You can purchase the books for all instruments online at http://www.sharmusic.com
