Due to a recent and significant demand on his international solo violin and conducting careers, AND his passion for new ways to teach, Joseph Swensen has resigned from his Professorship at the Jacobs School at Indiana University effective May, 2017. Check out his three new programs below:

LESSONS INTENSIVE takes place at SwensenMusicHouse, Vicki and Joey Swensen's idyllic and spacious 15 room Vermont residence (built on 5 acres in 1776!). Students and professionals, violinists, violists, conductors and pre-formed chamber groups are invited to receive as many as three hours of lessons/consultations a day with Joseph Swensen during residencies which can last as little as two days or as long as two months (depending on Dr. Swensen's concert schedule). Gap year residencies are available in very special cases. Skype audition/interview required. Available from May 1, 2017.

COACHINGS CONFIDENTIAL is intended for both students and professionals. Dr. Swensen will offer completely confidential (or even anonymous) consultation/instruction to violinists, violists, conductors and pre-formed chamber groups at locations determined by his concert schedule or on Skype. Dr. Swensen has served as a confidential coach to some of the worlds most well-known violin soloists, discretely attending their rehearsals or concerts, later offering in-depth consultations.
