Meet our adorable children’s character, half dino/half stringed instrument, Stringosaurus!
Hi, I’m Laura Carr! 🙂
I have spent the past decade working as a violin teacher around the world creating an imaginative curriculum starring Stringosaurus. Stringosaurus brings joy to everyone who meets him, so it’s not surprising he is a hit with all 3-8 year olds! Teaching a stringed instrument has never felt more fun or rewarding!
I invite you to join our growing teaching community online membership.
You will discover new monthly interactive resources which will leave you feeling invigorated and beaming with happiness, along with teachers’ video tutorials, storybooks, play-along videos, audio backing tracks and lesson plans.
You will feel prepared, excited and supported.
I can not wait to get to know you and to help you in whatever way I can.
Get access to the unique and purposeful online resources hub which is reviewed, added to and updated every month.
There are songs, stories, games, inspiration, implementation videos and ideas to bring play into lessons!
This hub has been tried, tested and reviewed by violin teachers from around the world and they have loved it! It’s officially ready for you.
Access our private and supportive Facebook group for discussion, problem solving and asking questions.
As part of the online community, if teachers need a particular resource for their student, they can ask me to adapt what is in the library or we can work together to make a new resource to solve the issue.

Today my monkeys were fiddling on my lap doing 345 x Tangorilla, 786 x Line up your violin, Strum your Stringosaurus and of course Jungle Strings never goes old. I wonder if your Hub has a ‘fair use policy’? 😉

Wow! You’ve provided so much! I love your philosophy on play. I have a Master’s in Play Therapy, so it is a subject very close to my heart. I love all your videos and really appreciate your enthusiasm, kindness, and whimsy.
A great group and/or individual approach with unique activities that really engaged my daughter whose violin skills developed without her even realising she was learning. The Stringosaurus approach is a friendly, relaxed approach that definitely works!
The Stringosaurus Hub is a really effective and creative programme that beautifully sets up the young learner and builds a good foundation to playing the violin – You could be the modern day Sheila Nelson!
A jam-packed eBook filled to the brim with hilarious and imaginative bow hold, bowing and violin and viola games!
They’re finally HERE! The violin and viola games you’ve all been waiting for are ready to help you bring your string lessons to life and engage with even your most resistant learners.
Everyone will love playing them!
This extensive treasury is especially for 3-10 year olds and has colourful, imaginative and hilarious pictures for every game.
Included in this beautiful violin and viola games treasury are hand picked gems to help with bow-holds, pedagogy gold posture exercises, games to help with left hand set-up and favourite bowing games.
No more nagging to correct recurring technical issues OR boring explanations where kids lose interest fast and get frustrated.
Now, you’re going to have super string students who adore their lessons and want to explore technical activities on their instrument at home and are more likely going to want to continue learning long-term, because they are having so much fun!
This Treasury was the new resource launched into the Hub on the 1st May, so if you’re already a member, you will have immediate access to this (plus the other 80+ resources). It’s under Teachers’ Starter Kit in Focused Learning, it seemed like a great fit because I use games to help my students focus! 😉
I’m also selling this Treasury to non-members! You can buy it as a one off purchase to use with your own personal students!
I’m so excited for you all to enjoy this. My 9 year old daughter Eva and I worked together on it and it was a really rewarding, rich and special journey.
I hope that I’ve shown her that it’s possible to have goals and dreams and to see them through.
