We make music for everyone. We create music training programmes for people, focusing on violin but encompassing the world of classical music. We work extremely hard to develop enduring intellectual curiosity in the world of music and sound. Our videos celebrate the passions of talented artists the world over. We believe music has the power to create social transformation, making people happier, strengthening the social fabric of communities and enabling friendships across time zones and continents. Through the universal language of music we aim to transcend boundaries of nationality, race, faith, culture and language - along the way, making music fun and accessible to everyone.
