I have been teaching individual and group lessons for 12+ years. Many of my students have won trophies at the Granquist music competition and also play in local youth orchestras. My own youth string ensemble plays publicly at many popular local venues several times a year. I enjoy exposing my students to the finer points of being a professional musician such as the camaraderie, team work, creativity (creating harmonies, tailoring arrangements to fit student’s level) and of course, stage presence. I am very proud of my students. It is so gratifying to see their confidence build with each new skill they master. *** Lesson Details *** My approach to teaching is to combine fundamentals with “adventure.” I encourage students to experiment with their instrument and have quite a few budding ...
I teach Viola students from beginners to intermediate.
I am a violinist from Rogers Park, Chicago's North Side. I started violin when I was 3, and have been playing ever since! I studied with Stacia Spencer at Northwestern University's String Academy, then went on to violin performance at Oberlin Conservatory of Music. I started teaching violin 8 years ago and have greatly enjoyed working with my students! Since then I have completed several Suzuki method teacher certifications and taken a string pedagogy course at Oberlin. I also have studied and play baroque violin in various groups in Chicago including Baroque Band and the Bach and Beethoven Ensemble. I also sing and play viola da gamba. *** Lesson Details *** I teach private lessons to students of all ages and levels. Music and learning should be fun! I help students express ...
I love to teach students of all ages. I really enjoy teaching young kids how to begin on their instrument, adults who like to play as a hobby and those who are very dedicated throughout high school and college.
I teach violin and viola lessons weekly for students of all ages and levels from the music studio of my home in Edgewater, Chicago. According to the students desire and work ethic, lessons include work in technique, scales, etudes, tone, sight-reading, solo repertoire and Suzuki songs for those just starting out on their instrument. Students have the option of playing in the studio recital in December or June. I encourage this of all my students whether we are working on classical, jazz, pop or world music pieces! I am originally from Austin, TX. I am currently a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago as a violist. Alongside playing in Civic, I teach violin and viola at the Music House of Chicago, privately at home and at various elementary schools. I grew up learning from all
I have been teaching since I was 17 years old, so this has become a passion very dear to me. I manage to engage and motivate my students in each lesson, by providing them with the guidance they need, and making it enjoyable and fun rather than tedious . Learning so much from great teachers have changed my life and approach to music, so I feel honored I can now do the same with my own students, encouraging them to improve and develop new skills that will take them to the next level in the process of learning. *** Lesson Details *** I like to use the Suzuki method for beginners, combined with Essential Elements. Etude and Scale books are also helpful. All these can build a solid technique that will allow students to express themselves and communicate through music. As I go along with a ...
My greatest passion is music, and there is no greater joy than sharing it with others!
I have a Master's degree in Viola Performance, and viola is my primary instrument. I have received extensive instruction on the minutiae of the viola, and can help you with any need that you many have!
I tailor my approach to each student. Some students require more technical work, some require interpretive. Both are fascinating and can be taught with structure and clarity.
Hi! My name is Martina and I am a classically trained violist. In May of 2013 I received a Master of Music from Roosevelt University, where I studied with Lawrence Neuman of the Chicago Symphony. I received an undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin with Sally Chisholm of the Pro Arte quartet. The only thing I love more than playing viola is sharing the joy of music with others! I've received training on violin and viola and can't wait to start teaching you or your child. *** Lesson Details *** I tailor my approach to each student to make sure that: 1.) The student is getting exactly what he/she wants out of the lessons. 2.) The lessons are an appropriate difficulty for the student. 3.) A student's strengths and weaknesses are being addressed with a tailor-made ...
All levels of training, from beginner to professional players.
Thank you for considering me as a music teacher! I work with all ages, and design lesson plans based upon the student's proficiency and age. Drawing materials from standard teaching methods such as Leopard Mozart, Dalcroze Eurythmics (especially useful for younger students), and the Suziki Method, I develop a curriculum for each individual student. I work to build strong foundations in all aspects of music making, and extramusical character traits like focus, discipline, and fun! I like to involve parents of younger students as well to help with practice planning, to get to know each family and student's needs, and to illuminate the different aspects of learning I am working on, e.g. hand eye coordination, kinesthetic awareness, and the various and multiple techniques involved in ...
