Hoppenot, Dominique

For three decades until her untimely death from cancer in 1983, Dominique Hoppenot was celebrated for her personal, original, and humane approach to violin teaching. The Inner Violin (Le violon intérieur), first published in 1981, is the culmination of her long experience as a violin pedagogue. A teacher of both professional instrumentalists and amateurs, Hoppenot challenged traditional academic teaching methods and her many workshops influenced a generation of string instrumentalists. A website ( created by some of Hoppenot’s students is a testimony to her remarkable impact and legacy.
