I have been teaching the violin/fiddle to children and adults for 9 years. My speciality is in teaching young children and youth. I do teach methods that are appropriate to their level, whether they are beginners or have been playing for a while. I love teaching adult beginners as well, we all need a good start with a firm technique base for left and right areas (violin and bow) of playing the violin. I teach from the concept of Musicianship: warm ups to prevent injury, correct techniques for playing, and using theory books and violin method books that are creative and easy to follow and understand, both for children and adults. I teach note-reading as well as aural learning because a student, young or older, needs both music notation and ear training to gain the best possible perspective on learning this instrument and having fun. As a teacher, I love being creative in lessons, it's very important and helps the student to assimilate the techniques and pieces so they can move forward in their violin or fiddle journey. My husband and I have a violin shop where we rent, sell, service and restore violins and bows in North County, San Diego. Once you schedule lessons with me you can contact me for details on renting a violin (fiddle) for yourself or your child. The violins we rent and sell are professionally set up by my husband who is a trained luthier. We also have all the necessary accessories you will need such as rosin, shoulder rests, tuners, various chin rests to select. We "custom" fit you to your instrument for comfort and playability. We encourage a free meet-up here at my studio to get you set up for a rental once you purchase lessons with me. This would be for either a child (with the parent) or an adult.
