Sarah K. Glen Head, NY

The violin is a unique instrument and requires dedication and focus. The beginning stages of learning to play the violin will involve me teaching students about posture, violin/bow hold, pizzicato, shifting in different positions, and expressions (dynamics, vibrato, accents, and staccato). I am very versed in method books such as Hal Leonard's Essential Elements for Violin and Alfred's Strictly Strings. I will also utilize software programs such as SmartMusic to make learning the violin more engaging and dynamic. However the most important part of my teaching style is that I will make learning the violin fun and I will teach you to play different genres of music. I look forward to working with you soon.

About Sarah

Hi my name is Sarah. I have a passion for teaching students of all ages and abilities and I can help students achieve success while motivating them and generating significant interest in all aspects of musical enjoyment and appreciation.

Music education improves cognitive abilities and strenghtens the brains’ attention networks. It teaches students how to work in a collaborative environment which teaches them patience, how to think critically, make decisions and develop listening skills. Music making builds a sense of community.

By learning what background in music my students have and in determining what level of interest they have in the subject, I will show them I am truly interested in their development. These lessons will develop their talents and help them ...

I have worked with Sarah over the past year assisting her with the development of her music teaching business, and in particular as an editor for the website of her business, Eskay’s Music Lessons. In working with and mentoring Sarah, I have come to know her on both a personal and professional level. What is immediately obvious about Sarah is her love of music, and her desire to share this with as many people as possible through teaching. Sarah is developing her business so she may teach others to embrace their own musical talents as she has embraced her own. I have spent many hours with Sarah and have observed how dedicated and devoted she is to operating a successful business and ensuring all of her customers receive the best music instruction available. In my opinion, Sarah’s determination, work-ethic, patience, and enthusiasm towards music and her business goals will undoubtedly result in an exceptional business to match her exceptional musical talents.

Sarah is a very passionate and creative person when it comes to the arts. While student teaching with me, she was always professional. She was actively engaged in the learning process and worked hard at helping the students become successful musicians and learners. In the class, students would be presented with challenging material that gave them to space to get at a deeper level of music learning. They asked questions. They wanted to learn. As a teacher, she is calm and patient. She is capable of capturing the needs of students while using their interests in the lesson. She can relate to them and that is what makes her so easy to talk to. Sarah was greatly appreciated and respected by the students at school. She exposed them to new music and a encouraged them to listen and look at music differently. Working with Sarah was a great experience. She and I would bounce ideas around until we found exactly what would "click" with the students. She is not only a skilled and talented musician herself, but a teacher with the students' best interests at heart.

Sarah is a very talented, knowledgeable, patient, kind, and skilled musician and instructor. She worked with both my children for many years and helped them feel at ease with the piano, while cultivating their efforts. She never put any undue pressure on them but she allowed them to flourish at their own pace as long as they went forward. She even used their own interests at times to motivate them in their learning, for example, when my daughter wanted to become familiar with Beatles music. Sarah found arrangements that were at my daughter’s skill level at the time. Sarah was very accommodating with schedules and had very good rapport with both my children who ranged from ages 5 to 14, in all the years we were together.

Was very impressed with Peter's methods, demeanor, patience with my 9 year-old daughter, who is a beginner at piano. She had some experience at reading music, and Peter was adept at recognizing this and 'pushing the envelope' a bit with her and she responded enthusiastically. She left every lesson with a smile on her face.
