We are delighted to announce news of an exciting collaboration with the acclaimed violinist Nicola Benedetti. The partnership brings her inspirational “With Nicky” video series to Charanga’s digital music education platform and its global network of music teachers, schools and pupils.

The educational series can now be found on our website and is available to everyone, everywhere, with no requirement to register or to be a Charanga subscriber.

The videos are designed to provide information, guidance and support for young musicians throughout their musical and personal development. They also serve teachers looking to supplement their work with new ideas.

“These videos are fabulous,” said Madeleine Casson, Education Director at Charanga. “Oozing with musicality, they’re packed full of warmth, humour and wisdom. Nicola approaches learning the violin from a whole body perspective. Everything is clearly demonstrated and explained, with clips of famous violinists used to consolidate the learning points she highlights.”   

“It’s an absolute pleasure to be working with Nicola and the Benedetti Foundation on this long-term project,” added Mark Burke, Founder and Director of Charanga. “The series complements Charanga’s suite of award-winning resources perfectly, supporting young musicians and teachers alike. So whether you’re looking to improve your technique or to overcome particular challenges with your students, tune in every fortnight!”
