- Recommended level: at least Suzuki Book 4 to professional level on violin
- Faculty: taught by V2V faculty Karin Brown, Renate Falkner, and Nana Vaughn
- Sponsored by: Shar Music, who provide free trial instruments to all participants who need a viola. Participants will have an option to purchase the viola or return after the workshop concludes (I believe Shar pays for shipping both ways in the US, but please check).

More partners are being added, so keep checking. If you are going to a music festival or youth orchestra and would like them to be a V2V partner, feel free to suggest it to us.
- An online workshop via Zoom, with a cost of $250. Many of our partners will award a scholarships or other perks for V2V workshop participants who also attend their festival making V2V somewhat cost-neutral; please inquire with the festival to see if they have a V2V scholarship.
- A certificate of participation will be provided after the conclusion of the workshop for everyone who fully participated.
- Our festival/youth orchestra partners have agreed to allow violinists who have been accepted into their programs, who are successfully certified by V2V, take part in their festivals as violists on at least a partial basis.
- If V2V participants are accepted to non-V2V partner organizations, you are encouraged to request viola experiences from non-partnering organizations. Feel free to have them get in contact with us for more ideas as well as info about being a V2V partner.

If the V2V participant is accepted as a violinist, our V2V partners have agreed to allow V2V workshop participants to participate in some viola opportunities, such as an extra viola lesson(s) with their resident viola instructor, viola master classes, or playing viola in chamber and orchestral music, at the discretion of the partner program and the participant.
