visitors ask me whether there are workshops on the New Approach to
string playing run by Kató
therefore here is the information. Kato Havas no longer goes around the
world running workshops, but still runs two short ones a year, in
Oxford and still teaches privately.
I too teach and run workshops to pass on what I've learned from her that helped me very much and can help many more musicians.
You too can find out how to eliminate tendonitis, tensions and aches and pains caused by playing violin and, even more, viola, as well as other instruments and how to improve your tone instantly and play with more ease!
More dates will be added to this page, maybe also with your help, have you ever thought about it? Read here how to organize a workshop.
If you run workshops on the New Approach and wish to be included in this page, send me all the details.

Many players spend years suffering because of aches and pains and even tendonitis
in their arms, neck, shoulders, back, wrists, hands, carpal tunnel
syndrome etc.; they stop playing and start again, some even undergo
operations and then stop playing altogether, not to mention emotional tension…
It's really a shame because it is possible to eliminate tendonitis
and other nuisances that afflict players, in a very simple way, knowing
the correct movements to do while playing: simple things that could
help you improve your tone instantly, increase your ease, your agility in playing also by heart, eliminate insecurity and therefore anxiety, stage fright.
The workshops are open to everybody, especially string players, in particular violinists and violists, teachers, students, professionals, amateurs. Many New Approach principles can be applied also to other instruments.

Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for violin, viola and orchestra
"I have every confidence that
Caroline Duffner, violin, and Monica Cuneo, viola, can continue my
Summer School at
St. Edmund Hall, Oxford.
Both have studied with me many years and are very experienced New Approach teachers as well as accomplished performers."
