Bookmark and Share

Musical education, just like music itself, should be accessible for everyone: No matter of age, location, race, education, gender or wealth. The internet is the perfect medium for removing boundaries. Play with a Pro is building the ultimate place to not only get better at your instrument, but to get inspired and take your playing to a level you never previously thought possible. A platform to learn music through private live video lessons, live stream events, and recorded tutorials and masterclasses from some of the world's finest and most passionate artists, teachers and musicians around. A platform to help you form practice habits, visualise your progress and meet your goals. A platform to connect with like-minded musical peers and broaden your mindset. A platform to make you into the musician you dreamed of.

Called "adventurous and brilliant" by the New York Times, violinist Daniel Hope has toured the world as a virtuoso soloist for many years. He appears as soloist with the world's major orchestras and conductors, directs many ensembles from the violin, and plays chamber music in a wide variety of traditional and new venues. He was also the youngest member of the Beaux Arts Trio during its final six seasons, and is celebrated for his musical versatility and creativity as well as his dedication to humanitarian causes. Born in South Africa and raised and educated in England, Hope earned degrees at the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied with distinguished Russian pedagogue Zakhar Bron. A compelling performer whose work involves standard repertory, new music, raga, and jazz, Mr. Hope, emphasizes thoughtful engagement over flamboyant display. In his most personal undertakings, he puts classical works within a broader context – not just among other styles and genres but amid history, literature, and drama – to emphasize music's role as a mirror for struggle and aspiration."

With the support of his label - Deutsche Gramophon, Hope enthusiastically agreed to take Play with a Pro. WATCH THE VIDEO
