“You've Just Found The World's Most Comprehensive Online Violin Course"
Playing violin is now easier than ever before!
My name is Clayton James Haslop. I’ve lead the orchestra from the concertmaster chair for Avatar, Titanic, Ratatouille, Star Trek, Up, The Incredibles, Benjamin Button, The Matrix movies, A Beautiful Mind, Mission Impossible II, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Apollo 13. In fact, check out The Incredibles DVD where I am interviewed on one of Hollywood’s scoring stages.
In three decades as a professional violinist I have performed on the soundtracks of well over 1,260 films – often as concertmaster and solo violinist. If you watched the 2009 Oscars you will have seen me lead the orchestra and perform the violin solo for James Newton Howard’s Defiance during the presentation for Best Original Score.
But don’t assume I have only been a commercial violinist.
In addition to my life as one of Hollywood’s busiest recording artists I have traveled three continents as a soloist and member of three recognized chamber ensembles; released several CDs; served as Concertmaster of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Pacific Symphony and Los Angeles Music Center Opera; taught on the music faculty of two colleges; given masterclasses at numerous universities, schools of music, and public schools in North America and abroad; and maintained a small private class of students. In short, as a classical violinist, I have done it all and now it is time to share it all.
I’ve spent 35 years learning what it takes to become a great violin player and I’m going to teach you exactly what I’ve learned.
May the Force of Music be with you!
