BACH Sonatas and Partitas for Violin with Garrett Fischbach

The Sonatas and Partitas for Violin Solo by J.S. Bach offer infinite possibilities for expressive interpretation, while presenting many technical challenges for the violinist.

In these classes, we will:

- Explore tips and tricks (and a few secrets) for beautiful chords, smooth string crossings and other technical challenges presented in these great works. 
- Identify clear paths toward interpretive choices based on easily identifiable principles of harmony and counterpoint.
- Discover how these choices lead to the most compelling and expressive performances.  

During each class, students will have a chance to play and receive coaching on any passage or movement from the Sonatas and Partitas  - everything from Gigues to Fugues! 

Suggested text: BACH - Three Sonatas and three Partitas - Bärenreiter Urtext Edition.


The next session is Sunday, September 27, at 3 pm EDT | 12 pm PDT | 19:00 UTC.

Garrett is a wonderful and engaging teacher. I have studied with him for the past couple years and after every lesson feel inspired not just to practice violin, but to listen, study and enjoy music...Garrett has so much love and energy for teaching that it EASILY transfers through zoom teaching. You will leave your lesson excited and inspired!
