Saginaw, MI
View Full Profile

I have been playing the violin for over 9 years now and have led first violin sectionals in my high school orchestra for four years, giving me valuable experience in guiding students through very difficult passages of music and in teaching them advanced techniques. I am able to teach basic note reading, the basics of bow holding and posture, and all other aspects of introductory violin and music. I am learning to play other instruments right now, so I know what it is like to learn a new instrument, and I know the best ways to do so. Hopefully you'll let me share my knowledge with you!

About Tyler
Hello! I am a college student looking for opportunities to help you learn! I am most able to teach music, specifically the violin, but can help in a number of academic subjects as well. I have been playing the violin for nine years, have been concertmaster/principal violin of Heritage High School's prestigious Orchestra program for two years, and have attended the statewide Solo and Ensemble festival since seventh grade, receiving "Superior" ratings every year. At the state competition my senior year, I was nominated to be a member of the Michigan Youth Arts Honors Orchestra, with an extra nomination to be one of four "Outstanding Soloists" in the entire state. Since I had been concertmaster of Heritage's orchestras, I was leading sectionals for my four years of high school, which is where my initial teaching experience comes from. Beyond
my curricular musical experience, I have composed a few orchestral pieces of my own, played as a guest soloist in multiple ensembles locally, and played in various youth and festival orchestras.

I believe in a very relaxed and comfortable teaching environment and teacher-student relationship, and I make it clear that the time that you are willing to put into learning determines how well you will learn. I make my best effort to mimic how my violin teachers taught me, as I was always excited to spend an hour of my week with an impassioned, joyful master of an art (though admittedly, I am no master!). Regardless, I am here to help and guide you in whatever way possible, but, as always, "practice makes perfect!"

Beyond my musical experience and accolades, I had a very successful academic career in high school. I graduated summa cum laude and top 20 in my class of 350 from Heritage High School, with a near 4.0 GPA. My academic merits earned me a full tuition scholarship from Saginaw Valley State University, where I currently attend. Given my academic experience and merits, I consider myself able to teach high school mathematics (Geometry and Algebra 1) and some English as well.

I hope this has been helpful and informative, and I look forward to teaching you!

Kansas City, KS

Experienced Music teacher of 2 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of their skills. I specialize in the Stringed Instruments, mostly classical music, but other varieties typically use Scales and Suzuki books and other solo books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: metronome, tuner, rosin, and other essentials.

About Sakinah
I was 10 years old when I started playing the violin. At the time, I was not able to afford an instrument and wasn't able to borrow one. So I had to sit in class and watch and learn through the book until one was assigned to me a few months later. It was fair to say I was behind. But the way the violin sounded, the rhythm I felt in my heart when I heard various Sonatas and other solos playing I discovered my love for this instrument. My Idol was violin soloist, Joshua Bell. And the first time our class took a field trip to the Kansas City Symphony to watch him rehearse, I worked and studied harder to play like him and ended up perfecting Vibrato watching him. From there, my love and deep understanding of the violin made me want learn more about stringed instruments and in middle school I was taught how to play the cello. Mastering both, I
took private lessons in both middle school and high school. I received 1 ratings in both District and State Championships several years in a row. I have 13 years experience playing stringed instruments. My love for music and wanting to share that love, watching the teachers I had that were so dear to me and pushed me to be my best, inspired me. It inspired me to want to be a Music Teacher and share what I learned on my own and what I was taught. And to help others master the skills necessary to be ALL they can be.

I am a patient teacher, and passionate about teaching music. There are many aspects on learning how to play the violin. I focus on the sound a lot, so it will be a very short or almost to none screeching time when they play. To produce good sound, posture is number one thing. I like to build a student from a solid ground, so correct posture, right hand, left hand position, violin holding, and the whole body posture are all little pieces can make big differences in violin playing. By doing so, can make playing much easier, sounding beautiful, and make hard passages easier! And the correct posture will also help prevent the possibility from getting playing related injuries. I believe having inspiration is important too, listening to different music and great players can develop the ears, and also is a hugh inspiration to practice.
