I teach my students proper body posture which strengthens the core. Bowing excercise and scales begin each lesson before me move on to music. I encourage students to eat before the lesson and also excercise which can help alleviate nervousness.

I am currently a violin instructor and chamber music/ ensemble coach at University of Southern California. My previous teaching experiences include violin private lesson instruction and chamber music/ensemble coach at Yale University and New England Conservatory Preparatory School. I have been a teaching artist at Porterville Summer Strings for two summer seasons, giving individual instructions and coaching violin sectionals.
I am a graduate of Yale School of Music and New England Conservatory. My teaching focus primarily on good foundation of technique and relaxed posture/physical set up, while inspiring musicality and developing personal expression. I am familiar with a vast variety of classical repertoire/etudes/ scale systems and exercises; however, I often compose/ transcribe personalized etudes and musical pieces according to each student’s need and interest. I also work with music in different genres. I emphasize on the importance of good practice. I help my students to ...

Teaching Philosophy:
The most important thing about teaching and learning anything is finding that perfect balance between productivity and fun. Every student will also receive a personalized lesson plan.

-For beginner students-
My role is to provide a fun learning environment where the student constantly feels challenged and engaged. The fastest way to learn the violin is by establishing the proper fundamentals by disguising them in songs and projects that spark their interest!

-For intermediate-advanced students-
My goal is to help you become self-sufficient. The focus will be on developing technique and musical knowledge so that you have all the tools you need to play the violin. I will also put a lot of emphasis on ...

My teaching philosophy is to provide each student the opportunity to find their passion, to understand who they are as an individual, and to create a sense of community within my studio family. Not only will I give them the tools they need to succeed musically, but most importantly, the tools they need to succeed in life. I want my students to be the best musicians they can be and to be the best versions of themselves that they can be. Abilities vary among each individual and I aim to take the time and the patience to understand and teach every student that comes my way. I am a patient, kind, and caring teacher who strives to show my students just how marvelous they can be.

About Zydae

I only have the best to say about Charlene's abilities as a thoughtful, attentive, proactive, discerning, creative teacher. She loves what she does, which showed in my son's attitude about attending lessons and his continued passion for music and string instruments 20 years later."

What is Rosin, and How Do I Use It?

For beginner violinists, that mysterious lump of tree sap in your instrument case might seem a little strange.  But that sticky substance - rosin - is actually essential to creating a beautiful, even tone. Particularly if you've just purchased a new violin bow, it's important to learn how to apply rosin properly before you begin playing your violin.  The rosin makes the hairs on the bow "sticky," allowing them to grip the string and produce a good tone. First, when applying the rosin, ma …
