Viola workshops

About us

Viola Workshops were founded in the summer of 2005 by Robin Ireland and four of his viola pupils, with the aim of promoting the viola and improving the standard of viola playing. 

The workshops are open to viola players of all ages: amateurs, students including school, conservatoire or university students, teachers of the viola, and others with an interest in viola playing. There are up to 15 participants in each workshop.

Comments from workshop participants 
  • An excellent day which achieved the right balance between playing, tuition and listening. Robin is an ideal leader for such an event - inspired and inspiring teacher as well as performer.
  • Robin's recital had us spellbound - such wonderful viola playing is an inspiration to us all.
  • Excellent format and tuition. Opened up a whole new musical vista in approach to ensemble playing. More please!
  • I had a fantastic time and got a lot out of the day.
  • A thoroughly worthwhile day. Robin has the skill of encouraging without making any criticisms personal.
  • An excellent, very enjoyable and very instructive day. Group size is ideal for tuition level and venue perfect.

  • An extremely well organised and productive day.

  • Natalie, thanks to you and Robin for such a rewarding day. The organisation is superb and the playing, learning and listening opportunities were really wonderful.

  • Thank you for another fantastic viola workshop. As always, the day ran very smoothly, with lots of variety. Robin provided us with lots of tips and things to work on, as well as it being very enjoyable.
