    Lara St. John does a marvelous job providing insight into the beloved masterworks of the violin repertoire. The series of lessons dissect the concerti measure by measure, examining key technical aspects and interpretive ideas. Particularly effective is Lara's approach: elegant, unassuming, yet powerfully convincing. The series is a true instructional gem for violinist of all walks of life!

    Lara St. John is a brilliant teacher as well as artist. I hope this DVD gets around - it should! She is clear, concise, and her demonstrations are wonderful. Lara is doing a wonderful thing with these videos and I hope they help a lot of young (and not-so-young) people. I learned a lot.
