Kevin Lawrence's own depth of musical conviction, his rich experience with several important figures in the history of violin playing, along with continuing engagement with prominent performers and teachers—both as director of Green Mountain and through ongoing international contacts—gives him an unusually broad perspective on how a student may attain success as a violinist.
I provide a thorough grounding in the foundations of violin playing as developed by Ivan Galamian and his school, with a teaching style that belongs to today’s young musicians—emphasizing dialogue, personal connection and respect for the spirit of inquiry.
