In violin lessons, I strive to push my students to play as professionally as possible while stretching themselves creatively. Beginning-Intermediate students will work out of the Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books in order to develop a solid technical foundation before branching out into broader repertoire. I make sure that lessons progress steadily and that students are comfortable with technique and reading before advancing to new skills. With intermediate-advanced students I work on solo/duo pieces as well as more theoretically minded practices. I try to instill a basic knowledge of music theory into all of my violin students since that can be a key asset when learning music for UIL competitions or auditions of any kind. I'm also specialized in a number of non-classical violin styles and am happy to work with students towards any stylistic goal that they have.
Beginner violin lessons start with an emphasis on physical interaction with the instrument and reading music in the treble clef. Students will soon read and play simple melodies from the recommended music list. Students will set goals to learn a piece of music that interests them. With guided practice and technical advice, I will make sure that the students reach their goals.
For the higher level violin lessons, I will offer guidance with any solo or ensemble piece that students are currently practicing. Also, I will encourage students to pick a piece of music or style of music that interests them as a goal to work towards.
