Wednesday, 25th September 2019, Professor Rodney Friend will be giving a masterclass at the Royal Academy of Music, London. Together with two Royal Academy students, James Chen and Hiroki Kasai, Prof. Friend will demonstrate his new technique “The Violin in 5ths” designed to improve the left-hand facility by using natural design.


Throughout his long and distinguished career, Rodney Friend has had the privilege to collaborate with many of the virtuosos of the 20th century, such as Isaac Stern, Yehudi Menuhin, Nathan Milstein, Henryk Szeryng, Ruggiero Ricci, etc. During these encounters, he observed the simplicity of their practice patterns, their effortless posture, and their natural hand freedom. These observations became the cornerstones of his reputed teaching method that he developed and perfected over the past decade.
