The Program Flow
After you subscribe and purchase the Bach Method Program, you'll be asked to send us a video of your playing. Your instructor will examine the video, and we will send you a tailor-made watch & practice plan.
Next, your first one-to-one lesson will be planned. Then, you will receive specific "homework," with masterclasses to watch & learn, plus indications on how to prepare for the second lesson, and so on. Finally, after the last lesson and your instructor's approval, you will be asked to provide your last video performance to be examined for your Certificate.

How our programs are valued
"The masterclass collection of Bach solo violin sonatas and partitas is excellent: it contains everything about style, technique, history, and the composer himself."
N.T. Bachelor student
“This is the most complete video series I've seen on the Bach Solo sonatas and partitas. A valuable collection of great music teachers who bring the student myriad insights and techniques. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to seriously profound the Bach Solo Violin repertoire!"
G.H. Musicologist from Hamburg
"The amazing thing is Professor Fried’s ability to organize the Sonatas and Partitas into categories that span all of the works. It is so helpful to watch a lecture on all three Fugues as a whole while only working on one. Discovering the commonalities between the three sonatas helped my understanding and interpretation so much."
E.S. Masters student at Sibelius Academy
"A great advantage is that I can study the material I want at the time and when I need it. And always with great teachers, which is something fundamental to me."
F.R. Student Buenos Aires
"To be able to take such a great amount of knowledge related to SPECIFIC topics. iClassical offers a topic and gets deep into it. The student, this way, can be a spectator of the reasons to get to understand the "why."”
