About This Brand

The Fastest Possible Start for the Beginning Violinist!

The reason for the effectiveness of the Early Start on the Violin method is because it respects the student: Techniques that may be considered too advanced to be used in other early development methods are introduced early in the Sassmannshaus method; vibrato, shifting into high positions, dotted rhythms, double-stops, quickly become second nature to the young student, removing the intimidation factor that often gets in the way of learning when introduced later.

Egon Sassmannshaus, one of the most renowned violin teachers in Germany, introduced the method series more than four decades ago. It quickly grew in popularity, with over half a million European students having using it. Almost 10 years ago, world renowned violin pedagogue Kurt Sassmannshaus, son of Egon, introduced the English language edition of the method, and it has been equally popular in North America.

About Kurt Sassmannshaus:

Kurt Sassmannshaus holds the distinguished Dorothy Richard Starling Chair for Classical Violin at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM). His students include prizewinners of major international competitions, prominent soloists and chamber musicians, and orchestra leaders around the world. Many of them hold important faculty positions in European, Asian, and American Conservatories.

After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Cologne, Sassmannshaus received a Master’s degree from the Juilliard School as a scholarship student of Dorothy DeLay. He won first prize in the International Chamber Music Competition in Colmar, France. He taught at the University of Texas, Austin and at Sarah Lawrence College before joining the faculty at the Cincinnati Conservatory. He has also been named guest professor at the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music.

Professor Sassmannshaus is totally engaged in the training of young violinists, through institutions that he has founded: The Starling Preparatory Project, the Great Wall Academy in Beijing, the Starling Chamber Orchestra, among others. In 2004, he premiered the not-for-profit website, offering free video instruction on all aspects of violin playing. With more than 20 million hits annually this web site made him the most widely effective and globally recognized violin teacher in the history of violin teaching.
