Who is this course NOT for?

It’s not for those who don’t have the will to learn.

And it’s not for those who don’t believe we can make this world a better place by spreading Art and Beauty everywhere!

Which is more valuable...
TIME OR MONEY?

If I told you that in Spirit Varnish course I have condensed all my experience that thanks to this course you will be able to save dozens and dozens of hours of unnecessary work, how much can this be worth?

You know, especially in the last two years I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on training and coaching, because I have realized that there is no better investment than the one you make on yourself.

I have also experienced firsthand how much a course, lecture or workshop can really save me time.

And believe me when I tell you that there is no comparison: time is worth a thousand times more than money!

Hello Sofia! Since Monday, each morning, I am sitting in the huge university library having a marathon of your Spirit Varnish Course, taking notes and watching your hands-movements closely!
And I enjoy everything so much!
I want to say hello and thank you so much for sharing everything and being authentic and funny and precise.
For my next theory block in the violin making school I am preparing a lecture about varnishing and how different ingredients behave in different mixtures.
For sure I will add some information from your course into it and obviously into the list of references in the end of my little school presentation.

Sofia treasures the secrets of a centennial Italian tradition of Violin Making and skillfully combines this historical legacy with contemporary innovations on varnishing techniques in this one-of-a-kind online course. This detailed and step by step course is a display of generosity from an accomplished violin maker eager to share her knowledge and to contribute to the advancement of our trade and to foster our sense of community.

🇮🇹 Italian tradition, my story, my legacy

I was born in a family of violin makers, so I had the privilege to start very early making violins.

I learned from my father Paolo Vettori, who learned from his father Dario I Vettori.

I’m lucky to keep the legacy of more than 90 years of violinmaking Italian Classic Tradition.

During my youth, I didn’t go to a classic “Violin making school”.

I learned in the most traditional way: my father and my grandfather handed down the knowledge to me.

I haven’t had anyone who told me “this can’t be done”, so I could try and experiment freely whatever I wanted.

That’s how I found the way that works, my way.

And I always encourage my Star Pupils to find their own way.

Thanks to my hard work I’ve received sincere compliments from some the most valuable luthiers around the world.

I was mentioned in Strad Magazine as well.

Now I can say it with confidence: you can be a luthier even without having attended a school.
 
Indeed, perhaps it reflects more the true tradition of craftsmanship handed down from father to son.

From Master to Pupil.

⭐️ What you give...will be yours forever

Sofia, why would you reveal your own secrets?!

You know, in the violin making industry, old masters tend to be very jealous of their knowledge and experience.

As if sharing their knowledge somehow would ruin and destroy all their career.

99,9% of them think like: “…if you’re good at something, keep it secret!”.

I am different.

I feel deep joy and fulfillment in sharing my knowledge and expertise with others.

I think this enriches everyone, both the teacher and the pupils.

⭐️ What you give will be yours forever ⭐️

How much does it cost [not to have it]?

At this point you may be wondering:

30 days Money Back Guaranteed

You're safe, I'll take all the risks.

You know, everyone can purchase the Spirit Varnish Course, watch through all the lessons and then ask for a refund within 30 days, just by sending me an email and without having to justify it.

In this case I will refund 100% of the course.

“Sofia, what about if someone look through all the lessons and then asks money back?”

Well, if someone acts like that they are not moved by a good purpose.

And as I want to deal only with good people, I’m more than happy to give money and not see him/her anymore.

This is my philosophy.

I wanna be totally candid, honest and transparent.

So…what have you got to lose?

Why should I purchase it TODAY?

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.”🌿

[Confucio]

At this point you might have read all this page.

And maybe you wish to have the Spirit Varnish Course, but you are still stuck and you tend to procrastinate…

So I’ll give you 3 more reasons to buy it now:

1️⃣ The PRICE WILL INCREASE overtime, as I will add more and more new lessons

2️⃣ Once I have purchased the course, the new lessons I will release in the future and all updates will be completely free for you

3️⃣ Investing in yourself is the best investment you can do (I personally am investing thousands of dollars in training every year).
In the last two years I have learned that procrastinating is not a winning attitude.

FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a doubt or question, you will probably find the answer right here.

Yes, you are free to choose the payment method you prefer.

Very simple.

If there’s a coupon also valid on the payment plan in installment, the total amount of the discount coupon will be splitted in the number of installments.

I’ll give you a little example, with arbitrary numbers.

Imagine you have a discount coupon of 90$ that works for the “COURSE X“, and you chose the option to pay in 3 installments instead of one shot payment.

Then you will get 30$ off on each of the 3 installments. For a total of 90$ discount.

Easy-peasy.

Sofia, how long does it take to make a complete Varnish from scratch?
