In this 10,000 subs celebration video I’m giving away a violin!

Also Q&A, pic of when I started the violin, chocolate binging and personal stories:

Hi! I'm Zlata

Classical violinist helping you overcome technical struggles and play with feeling by improving your bow technique.

Woohooooooo! After 426 videos and 7 years of hard work I hit 10,000 subscribers over at YouTube! 🥳💃🏼

Perhaps you’ve seen the Fiddlerman Concert Violin review last week? Several people from my audience even thought I’d upgraded my fancy 5-figure antique violin.

This beautiful violin is not mine to keep as I’m giving it away in my celebration video. Also I do some Q&A, share personal stories and you’ll see a pic from when I started the violin. Check out the video above.

As you know I don’t like hysterical like and share stuff. The giveaway competition is educational and happens all at YouTube. I tell you how to enter in the end of the video.

    Your video’s are absolutely adding to the quality of my playing. I started to play the violin 2,5 years ago, at the age of 45. You encouraged me not to be scared of the violin and it became a very satisfying friendship. Of course I am not chasing a career as solo player on big stages around the world but I love to play small classical gems and develop my technique at home. You also shared some easy Concerto’s for beginning violinists and I am proud I am able to play the Rieding and Küchler Concerto’s now! My teacher is trying to find a nice ensemble or small orchestra suitable for me. Although I have lessons every week your video’s are so inspiring and appropriate as a ‘second opinion’. When I ordered my Zlata-bow you took time to give me personal advice, I really appreciated that. As a beginning player I feel so vulnarable and overwhelmed by all the possibilities. Your video’s are easy to find by subject, at the moment I am ready for it. So thanks for all your efforts to maintain this website. And share a glimpse of your busy but wonderful life with us in this video. Music and love are so close related, I am happy you finally have an overflow of both! XXX

    And BTW: yes, I would love to win your violin!!! Although I am emotionally connected with my old violin, it is limited in sound and I need an upgrade, whatever will happen… In the last weeks I became addicted to your video’s and I have made a lot of notes so I can remember it well. No, I am not flattering you but very serious: it is amazing how much effort you put in your video’s to make this abundance of tips and tricks available for all violin-players. I have watched them carefully and learned so much! Thanks Zlata!!! With love XXX

    I would like to win your violin. My violin is a student violin, owned by me for 5 years. It’s sound has matured over the years, and it sounds smooth. It however, lacks projection. My mom has cancer, so financially it’s hard to afford a new one. Music makes me feel better. In total, I’ve done music for 7 years, and I’m enjoying it all the way through. Your videos seem to be making me a better violinist. Thank you.

      How great that music supports you in that way. I’m sorry, but the giveaway is closed. Next time!

    • Dominic Peter D Souza

      Wonderful to know that you find solace in Music. It awfully amazing you are pursuing music on a simple violin. Request you to continue playing on it Talent is not dependent on an instrument. Hope your mom is getting better….

    Hi Zlata,
    I love your name btw, and I love the violin but I don’t know how to play. I would like to get one for my daughter who loves the violin too. Would you be kind enough to bless us with one. We recently lost her father who had promised her a violin..so we would be very grateful.

    • Violinist Zlata Brouwer

      I’m very sorry for your loss. I lost my father at a young age too and wish you all the love and support you can get. This giveaway was in January, but make sure to subscribe for future giveaways.

    Hey Zlata,I’m very pleased writing this comment cause I’ve been finding a way to commend to on the way you pass useful information through every medium you lay your hands on.
    Well,I’m so pleased to hear you play your violin but sad because I can’t play what you often play on a broken violin.
    My family is comprised of mainly musicians and I’ve tried telling my parents to get me a new one but they can’t because we are not financially stable right now.I hope you’ll find a spot in your heart to understand me better.

    • Violinist Zlata Brouwer

      Thank you for your comment. I hope your parents will be in the position soon to get you a violin otherwise wait for my next giveaway (this one is closed).
