About InvincibleViolinist.com

You've always loved the violin.

But have you given up on playing
the way you once imagined?

If you’re like me, you know there’s something special about the violin. That beautiful sound melts the hardest of hearts; it touches the deepest part of the soul.

But as a violin player, there’s often a dark side. Like me, you’ve probably had more than a few struggles with the violin. Mastering it, or just playing consistently at your best can be mysteriously elusive.

Today, with the advantage of hindsight, it’s becoming clear that what I can or can’t do on the violin most often had little to do with the instrument itself. Instead, it’s a reflection of how I’ve mastered (or failed to master) parts of my own life.

The truth: moving ahead on the violin has nothing to do with your age, “natural talent” or a busy schedule.

For most of us, the biggest challenge of learning to play the violin, has nothing to do with the violin itself. Neither is it a lack of talent or spare time. Using the dual lenses of personal development research and mindfulness practice, InvincibleViolinist.com shines a spotlight on what’s holding you back and how to take your playing to the next level and beyond!

Not surprisingly, learning to play the violin requires using and refining your life skills. Why do we put these on the shelf whenever we take out our instruments as we mindlessly repeat the same mistakes over and over?

Playing the violin is no one single skill. Instead it’s a collection of many skills both on and off the instrument. Your mental and physical approach to these skills matters. Even the order in which you master them makes a difference.

What I’ve learned (and what I’m still learning) as a lifelong performer and teacher of the violin, I share with you in this blog and in my regular emails.
