Course Description

Have you ever wanted to be able to play some of the best Christmas carols, but have been struggling where to begin? Or after trying to learn them for a while, you gave up, because it was too difficult to read the music, or to find a consistent fingering, or simply to establish a good practice routine?

Well, you are lucky! There is no need to search any more! The Violin Christmastime online course is offering a quick and easy way to learn some of the most popular Christmas carols. The video lessons include explanation on how to organize the tunes, so you memorize them easier. Simultaneous sheet music and close-up shots of the fingers show you exactly what to do. Play-along practice sessions, starting slower and moving up to a faster tempo give a steady learning pace, and finally, simple directions on how to make the song more musical, will make you sound like a true professional!

Improve your violin technique while having fun learning these beautiful tunes!

Instructor Biography

Violinist Yuliyan Stoyanov holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati. His professional career includes solo, chamber music and orchestral appearances in Japan, Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Russia and Macedonia, as well as throughout the United States. Recordings of Stoyanov’s performances can be found in the archives of both, the Bulgarian National Radio and the Bulgarian National Television, as well as West Virginia Public Radio, WNKU, and Youtube.

Along with his classical roots, Stoyanov has explored various other genres, jamming and improvising in different styles. His love for music has made him a partner with Electric Light Orchestra, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Poduene Blues Band and Newbees, and leading artists as Sarah Brightman, and Josh Groban.

Dr. Stoyanov is actively involved in teaching violin, chamber music and string ensembles. He is a strong believer in music education being fun and easy, based on the idea that anything that we do naturally, we do without effort. In his free time he enjoys playing with his two sons (1 and 5 year old) and practicing yoga as a way to learn more about the freedom of movements involved in violin playing.
