HI!
My name is H. Samuel Antunes, and I am a professional violin player and conductor!

I am specialized in Suzuki Method, but I also work with the classical methodology as well.
I have 12 years of experience teaching the violin, and I am happy to say that my students are great violinists!

I have extensive experience performing as a classical violinist in solo, chamber, and orchestral music. I have been playing the violin since the age of 8 and have participated in many well-known music programs. As a teacher, my focus is on learning classical violin technique in order to produce the best sound, while allowing the student to pick their repertoire based on their musical preferences, however always encouraging exploration of the classical genre!

Learning an instrument can open your mind to new insights in life, and just like with languages, will be much easier to comprehend at a younger age. If you're looking for violin lessons for your child, look no further. As a young person, I believe that I will not only be able to connect with younger students like no other, but also teach and instruct with more than nine years' experience in both orchestra and chamber orchestra across Fairfax and Loudoun County, all at an affordable price. With Superb Violin Lessons, your child can learn a beautiful instrument, have fun, and maybe even find themselves sitting in the first chair.

Private Violin Teacher

I have played violin for the past 20 years and received my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I think the most important part of violin playing is having fun and enjoying what you do, so I really emphasize this in my teaching. I also think it is important that we use our bodies well and avoid playing related pain, so my teaching focuses on getting players into a comfortable position with their violin. I have taught all ages, and am great teaching in the beginning stages when everything feels new and difficult! I also do consults for more seasoned players who want to improve their technique, or who are coming back to the instrument after an injury.

About Marial

I use the Suzuki Violin Method and the ABCs of Violin Method, but am willing to work with other method books as well. I have developed extensive supplemental resources that I'll use with any curriculum.

I also work with orchestra/band students to help them succeed, usually taking a break from the method books to focus on that season's music.

I can prepare you for contests and auditions, help you work in a small or large ensemble, grow you as a soloist, or help you learn a new style.

Beginning students will gain a solid grasp of all the "essentials": basic theory, sight reading skills, counting, and technique. As soon as you have these, you have a lot of freedom with what you want to work on!

I take kids, adults, and teens. I have experience teaching kids with disabilities including Down's syndrome, trauma/PTSD, ADHD, cerebral palsy, and more.
