Stop wasting your practice time on random violin lessons.
Learning violin is a lot easier when you have a step-by-step system to follow. Julia’s Violin Academy’s Learning System is interconnected and organized to get slightly harder as you progress.

Are you ever doubting if you’re “doing it right”?
Julia’s Violin Academy offers possibilities to submit YOUR student videos for feedback and join live classes that are dedicated to give answers to your questions.

Joined Julia’s Violin Academy at Nov 2018
“Joining the academy was the best investment I have ever made”
I am fulfilling a lifelong dream at 57 years of age. Bought a violin and started watching video tutorials hoping to learn to play. It was overwhelming with so many different teachers, styles and methods I soon became extremely frustrated and disheartened.
Then I found Julia Termeer and her amazing academy. Her enthusiasm, encouragement, step by step tutorials, online meeting sessions, structured learning method and so much more, just cannot be found anywhere else. Joining the academy was the best investment I have ever made. My violin playing is advancing in leaps and bounds. It has also enabled me to meet fellow students of all ages from across the globe.
Julia Termeer is so dedicated and her personal tutoring via video feedback is really instructional and is better than having a ‘face-to-face’ tutor. Being able to learn at my own pace by following a structured lesson plan instead of bouncing around not knowing what to do next has been a life saver (or should I say violin saver) for me. I also particularly love the fact that all the lessons in the academy are available to all students regardless of which course you chose.
If you miss an online tutoring/meeting session, not to worry. Julia records them all and makes them available to all students at anytime. If you love learning at your own pace, are looking for a personal ‘online tutor’, want to meet aspiring violinist from across the globe or are simply looking for encouragement and great feedback, you will love Julia’s Violin Academy.

“This Academy has been life changing for me!”
I will be totally honest, I was very skeptical at first. I didn’t think trying to learn Violin like this online was really possible. I had so many questions!
“Is this legitimate?“
“Can I really learn like this?“
“Is the instructor REALLY going to be actively involved?“
“Is this really worth the money?”
The answers to my questions are all YES!
YES it is legitimate, YES I really can learn like this’ YES Julia is very active in the group and the community is outstanding! YES it really is worth the money!
We have video live classes, we meet up almost daily for Practice Sprints where we practice for an hour together, we are able to post to the Facebook group and get real feedback from peers and even Julia! There is so much more this Academy has to offer as well!
I highly recommend this Academy whether you are a brand new beginner like myself or a seasoned player on a higher level like some others in the group.
I am so happy I found Julia’s Violin Academy!
WHAT OTHER MEMBERS ARE SAYING
Unlock Your Vibrato There are many, many videos about how to perform vibrato. And most of them lack one important and essential element. They tell you how...but they don't teach the whys and wherefores needed to understand the process. During the 'Unlock Your Vibrato' classes Julia explained not only the mechanics of vibrato, but also the understanding of why it is done the way it is and the reasons for learning it in precise steps. Julia's teaching style is unique for those reasons. Not only in the vibrato classes, but in every step of the violin learning process. So when she offered the class I enrolled immediately. Vibrato is not easy to learn (like all things violin) but it is doable. I would encourage everybody to enroll in Julia's vibrato class. It is fun and informative. And who knows...you may just come away with a beautiful vibrato that brings tears to the eyes... read moreMichael Jones 3 weeks ago
What violin taught me and how JVA helped To Julia, Victoria, Team JVA and everyone here: I simply wanted to say how grateful I am to have you with me in my Violin journey.
JVA and the students here have added much beyond violin skills alone in my life and enriched it beyond imagination. I have made friendships here that I cherish with all my heart. In Jan this year I had written something about violinists and this group. I am taking the liberty of sharing it here and to say kudos to all who have bravely taken up this instrument!
‘As I started to play the violin, I came across quite a few violinists, many of whom had started to learn the violin well into adulthood.
Adult violin begginers need special mention. They are a select breed.
To validate my point, among those I interacted with, initially I knew them just as fellow like minded folk and discussed... read more
Unlocked My first violin lessons were as a kid and though I went back to it as an adult-- I never learned vibrato. I put vibrato on my bucket list and now at 82 I've Unlocked My Vibrato thanks to Julia's 6-week program. All Julia's teaching videos, and the personalized feedback of Julia and Victoria were helpful and encouraging. So were the videos of fellow students. I still have work to do, and will continue to learn from Julia's videos which include tunes to practice along with.Alexandra Mezey 1 month ago
A great experience! After struggling with youtube videos for over a year, I decided to purchase this course to help with my understanding of vibrato. Julia was able to explain so many things about posture, hand placement, and the need to develop and strengthen the necessary muscles in a way that no other teacher had done before. It helped me understand not only what to do, but why I was doing it as well.
My vibrato went from tight, cramped, and sounding horrible; to much more fluid, flexible, and bearable to listen to. I'm still not where I want to be, but now I understand that time and patience is a huge part of the journey, and as I have lifetime access to these practice courses I have no doubt that I will improve with time.
I would point out though that you only get from this course what you put into it.... read more
I am basically a 3-years self taught violin learner and trying to learn vibrato more than a year, I viewed many videos on YT, join free groups to ask questions…, after all I have done only get a shaky violin and with out of tuned screaky sound. But now I am so glad that I joined the unlock your vibrato which helps me a lot. There are clear explanation and demonstrations, beautiful exercise songs and feedback zone...I enjoyed it very much. Now I can do some not bad vibrato sound😛 and still practicing my 1st and 4th finger vibrato and getting better 🥰 it may slowly at the beginning but be patient I can make it💪Cynthia Hung 1 month ago
