Faith Whiteley's teaching career spans 5 decades during which she has taught children of all ages in every type of school in the English education system, including specialist music schools such as the Yehudi Menuhin School and university departments from beginner to very advanced performers. In 1983 the Guildhall School of Music asked her to devise a foundation course for young string players aged 4 to 11 where she was head of the string training programme for 17 years. In 1997 she was invited by Professor Shi-xiang Zhang to teach young violinists in and around Shanghai. She continues to teach in the Junior Department of the Guildhall School of Music and many of her past pupils have become professionals musicians.

Excellent and indispensable.
9 out of 10 found the following review helpful

Pros: Playing the violin requires technique; this DVD allows permanent reference to those aspects of technique or playing which one either has forgotten, or never knew. So many excellent ideas and hints that it is not possible to single a particular one out.

Cons: None

Other: I wish that this DVD had been available many years ago!

Truly encyclopedic - and cornucopian as well

Pros: This DVD contains a huge distillation of Faith Whiteley’s many years of teaching violinists from beginners through intermediate level to advanced. Being an adult returner, living in a remote region, I am finding it indispensable. No-one can know everything and this is an excellent resource. The video and audio quality are very good, the menus easy to use. There is even a selection of PDF files at the back to help even more. I am still working through the intermediate level sessions and haven’t had time to look at the advanced, so far, but if they are as good as the two previous sections then they promise to be excellent. It is well worth the money and I recommend it highly.

Cons: None at all.

Other: Get it; you won’t regret it.
