About Violin Podcast
The Violin Podcast is a new podcast that was created in early 2020 to be used as a resource for violinists all around the world to hear professionals in the violin world for practice tips, career advice, and adapting to an ever changing musical landscape.
VP host and violinist Eric Mrugala interviews violinists from around the world discussing various topics such as practice tips, career advice, entrepreneurship, and more.
The Violin Podcast aims to be more than a podcast. It's a community where we can engage in conversation about the violin, and how to navigate as a musician in the 21st century. Our mission is to bring violinists together and create a useful resource for violinists and musicians alike to help them make an impact.
