I repair, restore and teach all levels and genres of violin playing from Classical to Bluegrass.
Violin and viola are similar, in fact, I play both not only for students and lessons, but professionally as well. Although, violin was not my first instrument, the principles and fundamentals are so similar to the viola - in fact, you'll learn that you can someday transition between the instruments yourself if you'd like!
The first lessons usually are spent learning about the fundamentals - it's a lot to take in at first, but it will start making more and more sense as we start to apply those basic principals. I'm not a strict teacher; I'd rather my students enjoy the learning process and have fun with their instrument. I teach every student a little differently based on their age, previous knowledge, goals, learning style, and personality. I encourage my students to practice thoughtfully - I value quality practice time verses just lots of mindless playing. I have a very thoughtful approach to my teaching style - and I'm always learning and reevaluating how I teach based on ...
Music should never simply be a rote-learning process. We develop real artistry. My students learn how to interpret, transform, and create music. From the first lesson, we experiment with various musical "ingredients" and revisit these tools often as we move through a lesson series or repertoire. Students explore a variety of styles and learn to read, compose, and improvise. Students as young as five have created their own theme and variations on a favorite tune with these techniques.
Students can expect to be both challenged and inspired in lessons. I believe that learning and playing the Violin should be fun, but also taken seriously if you're actually paying money to learn. Students will be pushed to their highest potential and will leave with the motivation to learn more and become a better violinist.
