Find a Colourstrings Teacher

The teachers listed in the table below are regarded internationally as the leading Colourstrings practitioners in Australia. Between them, they have made more than 30 visits to East Helsinki to observe and work closely with the Szilvay brothers over the past 34 years. Each has developed successful careers locally and/or overseas as music performers, educators and researchers quite separate from their work in developing Colourstrings. They collaborate closely. Individually and
collectively, they have mentored many newer teachers to the method over the years. Yuri and Celia have even
lived and worked in Finland as teacher/performers. In 2011 these six Australians were formally acknowledged for their
contribution to Colourstrings teaching and teacher training by each being awarded an Honorary Colourstrings Teacher Training Certificate from the Colourstrings International Association at a ceremony in Helsinki. Contact one of these six for referral to a Colourstrings teacher in your region.
