The Bornoff Approach for the School Orchestra – new Primer! – Three Sessions!


Summer Workshops – Certification available for qualified participants.

This intense workshop dives deep into the Bornoff PROCESS. The curriculum includes the sequence of bowing (détaché, spiccato, staccato, double stops), fingerboard technique (5 finger and tonal patterns with bowing and rhythmic variations), and accompanying repertoire found in the Finger Patterns and Fun for Fiddle Fingers.

Participants play the violin, viola, cello, and bass (instruments provided at no extra fee). Teachers often use this time to improve their skills and understanding of their second or third instrument. Conversation is tailored to the participants’ needs and includes discussion of multi-level teaching, assessment, and an overview of the higher-level materials including Patterns in Position, Pure Technique, and advancing solos. 

To get the most out of any of our workshops, participants are encouraged to read Bornoff: Breakthrough for String Education, available for purchase in the FASE store.

Albert Einstein said ‘the definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.’ If this is true, Debbie Lyle is a genius. Debbie has a rare gift for teaching highly complex concepts in a way that children through adults can receive them with joy and enthusiasm.

Before I knew of Debbie Lyle and George Bornoff’s system, I thought it was a futile effort to teach violin, viola, cello, and bass students without private teachers in a group class setting. Debbie won me over so that I now feel there is actually a great advantage to teaching the fundamentals of violin, viola, cello, and bass technique at the same time in an ensemble class. I highly recommend Debbie Lyle and the Bornoff String Approach.   – Ross DeBardelaben, DMA
