Violinmusic4all is a project based on significant innovation which represents a methodology of teaching violin to deaf people and it includes a wider range of children and adults with mental and physical disabilities.
The project was designed by Croatian violinist Renata Novoselec, who achieved both domestic and international success in over a decade of working in the field and 4 years of implementing this method. In Croatia, the project gained much attention from the media, attracted the interest of institutions, professionals and the general public.
The ultimate goal of this project is to establish an institute where deaf people can learn to play the violin using this method, where we would teach other deaf and non-deaf persons and, finally, where deaf persons can play for therapeutic purposes to those in need. Until the foundation of the institute, which is planned in the next two years, we are currently based at the premises of the Slava Raškaj Educational Center. The inclusion of deaf people in the society is also an important issue for us and we wish to help them achieve greater independence through more work opportunities.
