During the spring/summer season 2021 of Etudes 101, Gwendolyn embarks on first of three 12-week cycles through Rodolphe Kreutzer's Etudes. Visiting each etude in chronological order, Gwendolyn invites one of The Exhale faculty's violinists (or violists) to join for a lively exploration of one etude a week. Reference to the order of the etudes (these differ amongst the myriad editions in circulation) is made by way of the first edition. Publisher info: Paris: Cherubini, Mehul, Kreutzer, Rode, Isouard, Boieldieu, n.d.(1805). This can be found, for example, on IMSLP.

2nd June: No 9
This week her guest is Joanna Wronko, discussing and demonstrating Kreutzer No. 9.
Joanna Wronko writes:
‘We will look at ways of practicing repetitive movements of the left hand in a way that avoids injuries, building up strength and endurance gradually and in a safe way. We will also look at practicing different bow strokes as suggested by Massart, who was a student of Kreutzer. As the etude involves repetitive patterns on one string it offers space to look at bow movement, isolated from the issue of frequent string changes!’

Our community classes are based on a system of dāna. Dāna is the practice of cultivating generosity. At The Exhale, multiple hours of learning are given each week in the form of community classes, where the price of a class is recommended but not imposed. Those who teach these community classes volunteer their time and offer the revenue generated by it to faculty members who are in financial need during this unprecedented time in our collective history. We thank you for supporting this eco-system of giving and receiving!


Classes held via zoom, limited to small numbers. Community classes are free to attend, with a recommended donation per person. However, please donate what you can – no one will be prevented from attending due to financial circumstances.
