Jill H.

Winter Springs, FL

Learn how to play violin with the bow and pizzicato, with the fingers. Learn good posture, care of the instrument, tuning, up and down bowing along with playing musically. Listening skills are important for the beginner, so listening to the correct pitch is part of learning to play the violin. Unlike most other instruments, there is no button to push or hole to cover rather the fingers of the left hand must be able to match the correct pitch while fine tuning to the ear. Simple melodies are learned using the open strings, D scale, A scale, G scale and C scale are among the theory that will be taught in this class.

About Jill

Jill holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and has master's work in choral music. For many years she has taught private and group music lessons to all ages and many varying styles of singing and instrumental music. Her lessons are unlike the ones she remembers from childhood; Jill's lessons are full of creativity, fun and excitement. It is amazing how students improve with each lesson. Jill brings more than just technique to the studio, she strives to find the best in each student and then concentrates on improving each individual's strengths and then delves into ways to correct the weaknesses. Since Jill is a vocal soloist, instrumentalist, accompanist and director, she knows what it takes to prepare and rehearse and therefore she makes it clear which concept the student ...

Jill is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and creative in teaching, good at communicating her musical ideas with children. My son progressed a lot under her instruction. We really hate to say goodbye to her because we have to leave America. Her classes are part of our best memories here.

Nicole is a GREAT instructor. She is very patient and kind. My 5 year old daughter always looks forward to her violin lessons with Nicole because she makes it fun and exciting for her. My daughter is also now doing piano lessons with her and I am VERY pleased with how she's coming along. I highly recommend Nicole especially if you have children who are very shy and nervous.

Sharon H.

Orlando, FL

The violin techniques are important. This includes good posture and holding of the instrument. Good bow technique. Sight reading is very important to violin. I emphasize the fundamentals and encourage the personality to come out in one's playing. That is the mark of an artist. First, second, and third positions are taught at this level. Scale patterns start in the first position. Simple theory is explained as well.

About Sharon

Been playing the violin for over 40 yrs. Started in elementary school and held the coveted "Concert Master" designation all through high school. Been playing fiddle since 1985. Twenty years experience as a dance fiddler, and the last several years studying swing and traditional Irish. I play in three bands, all different genres. I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument. It is one of the best kept secrets to life. This is a point I like to stress to my students. It enhances your mind, you can make wonderful friendships with like minded people, and constantly learn new tunes and genres. It just keeps you young at heart. I love spreading the Gospel of music.I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument. It is one of the best kept secrets to

Pepina D.

Orlando, FL

I offer fun and thorough violin lessons. I teach different methods from Suzuki to Michael Allen's Essential Elements for strings. I try to bring music to students in fun way through playing music songs and learning student's favorite music pieces. Let's make music together (I play piano and accompany student on violin).

About Pepina

I am a laid back teacher and I try to be flexible in every aspect of my teaching. I try to make fun every lesson for a student. I give the students to play some familiar easy songs in order to improve their playing skills. *** Lesson Details *** My teaching methods are the Suzuki and the classical teaching method. The Suzuki method is based on learning the music by imitation of the teacher and later learning the music alphabet while the classical methods (such as the Essential Elements for Strings-M. Allen) emphasize parallel work on learning the notes and playing songs. I expect that after three months my students learn a basic technique of playing their instruments, to be able to read the notes, and play at descent level (which would correspond to the level of the Suzuki book 1 or ...

Yamilet T.

Orlando, FL

Whether it's your first time picking up a violin, or you need a little help with orchestra/audition music, I can help you accomplish your musical goals! Lessons will focus on note-reading, intonation, rhythm, tone quality, and all other important aspects to improve your violin playing!

About Yamilet

Yamilet realized her love for music at the early age of 7, after singing along with children’s television shows and joining her elementary school chorus. She was also a member of the Orff ensemble and in the 4th grade began learning to play the violin. Using that background knowledge, she began to teach herself piano. In the 5th grade, she switched to cello. Although she has always had an insatiable curiosity with musical instruments (playing as many notes as she can figure out on harmonica, guitar, recorder, clarinet, double bass, viola and even water-filled glasses) she has stuck with the cello for almost 15 years. Yamilet is a Dr. Phillips High School alum, where she was accepted into their Visual and Performing Arts Magnet Program. She graduated from the University of Central ...

How to Play the Violin Like Lindsey Stirling
The inimitable Lindsey Stirling has shaken the world’s concept of classical music. From sold-out shows around the globe to her top-ranked YouTube video for "Crystallize," she’s come a long way since being eliminated in the quarter-finals of “America’s Got Talent” in 2010.

Beginner Basics: How to Read Violin Sheet Music
The most valuable skill you can develop as a musician is learning to read music. While it’s possible to learn to play “by ear,” reading music opens up the world to you as an artist! There are many different ways to write music. Guitarists often read off of charts outlining the chord progressions for the song. Drummers have a rhythm chart showing them what to play. As a violinist, however, you'll most likely be reading off of violin sheet music. Standard sheet music is filled with directions fo
