About Jacqui Robertson-Wade

I started my YouTube channel when the Corona virus caused us all to go into lockdown. I wanted to offer my students and other viol players progressive lessons and practical help in the form of essential viol maintenance: ‘How to’ refret a viol, ‘How to’ replace a string and ‘How to’ clean a bow, during this time of isolation.

The first steps in learning to play any instrument are important in founding good technique, so you can progress onto the next level. My teaching videos are a culmination of 35 years teaching, either as a cello or viol teacher. I use the principles of Alexander Technqiue and a strong sense of 'how it feels' to play and learn new muscle memories.  My philosophy of string teaching is to alway make a beautiful sound, so my lessons and Viol Player tutor books relect this, taking time with learning bowing technique at different levels.    

To make lessons on line user friendly, I have created a Progressive Viol Lesson page for all YouTube viol lessons with Alison Crum, Alison Kinder, Sam Stadlen and myself. Having taught viols in schools for 18 years, I devised a Technical Syllabus and this is how lessons are organised: 5 levels: Elementary, Lower Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper Intermediate and Advanced. This helps players find the right lessons for their ability and desire! You can also search by teacher or repertoire. https://www.rondopublishing.co.uk/progressive-viol-lessons/

I founded Rondo Publishing in 2005 with the first viol tutor I wrote, Viol Player Book 1, which has since received international acclaim. My aim from May 2020 is to record 10 progressive lesson at each level to to accompany the Viol Player tutor series, as well as other play along pieces, so wherever viol players live in the world, they can access structured tuition online. If you do the maths, that works out at 150 lessons! The first three lessons at each level are free, but by becoming a Patron on my Patreon channel, you will have exclusive access to all other lessons.

If you subscribe £3 a month you will support me in recording my 'How to' viol maintenance videos for everyone on YouTube.  For £10 a month you have access to lessons at all levels, private Play Along Videos and seasonal offers from Rondo Publishing.

Thank you for your support.
