About me, Christian Howes:
A classically trained violinist with eclectic musical interests, I’ve received numerous awards including First Place/ Rising Stars in the Downbeat Critics Poll. I’ve worked with many great musicians, including as Les Paul’s violinist for 12 years.
During my tenure as Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music, my curriculum was used to improve the proficiency requirements for all string majors.
Creative Strings Academy is the culmination of my work as a teacher, and it’s widely regarded as the most extensive contemporary string curriculum anywhere.
Why work with me?
The fact that so many top players and teachers name me as a mentor is one compelling reason I can offer in helping you decide whether to sign up for your free trial. I’m proud to have coached widely respected players including Michael Doucet, Leah Zeger, Alex Hargreaves, Mike Barnett, Andrea Whitt, Jeremy Kittle, Andy Reiner, Jason Anick, and Eli Bishop.
This course is meant to serve pros, amateurs, teenaged students, and teachers, whether from classical or fiddling background.
