NOTES on a VIOLIN is a short documentary film that explores the life of a violin-obsessed teacher, who wants to spread the "gospel" of classical music by teaching people he meets how to play the violin. 

I first met Darren Briggs on a busy street corner, where unbelievably, amid the cacophony of traffic, people, and street noise, he and his student were practicing the violin.I became curious about Darren’s philosophy of teaching and learning, and created a series of stills and a short documentary film.

Celebrating the abnormal in our every day normal lives, this film captures Darren Briggs' unique and independent spirit, whose passion is contagious as well as deeply inspirational, urging us to look around and discover the wonders that lie just outside our front doors.
