About Zbigniew
My greatest desire is that I will instill in each of my students the love I have for making music.
I am a classically-trained violinist. I grew up in Lodz, Poland, where I began musical education at the age of 7.
I studied violin and piano at the Music High School and Music Academy of K.&G. Bacewicz, Lodz, Poland and earned a Master Degree in violin performance in 1980.
During his College years I started to perform with the Symphony Orchestra of Polish Radio and Television.
From the mid – 70s until the early 1990s, I performed with several Polish orchestras
and held a position as a violin teacher for four years at the College of Education
in Slupsk, Poland.
Then, I spent almost 10 years performing in numerous ensembles and orchestras in Germany and toured with Orchestra of Great Theater of Lodz in many countries all over the
world.
From 2002 – 2005 he was first violinist at Lodz’s Operetta Theater.
I moved to Michigan in 2005, where he performs with Macomb, Jackson and Flat Rock Symphony Orchestras.

*** Lesson Details ***
The most interesting and beneficial thing about performing music is that it is one of the few activities that engages both the left and the right brain at the same time. I believe that every Human Being is precious and deserves to be nurtured and encouraged in a fun and loving environment. With that in mind, my teaching places equal importance on developing strong technique, and developing creativity. Students learn all the basics of music, and also spend time developing strong ensemble skills and strong background knowledge of style and repertoire, so that they can enjoy music in all kinds of settings, all their lives.
Our time spent together will be laid back and comfortable, yet challenging because that is probably why you want to take lessons.
Each lesson will conclude with an assignment of instrumental pieces/songs given to work on throughout the week—usually 2-3 short songs for 30-minute lessons, and 1-2 longer instrumental pieces for an hour-long lesson. These will be the same pieces we have worked on during the lesson time, so you will go home with the knowledge you need to master each piece. Music theory sheets and technique exercises will also be included in the assignments.
Within 6 months, you will begin discovering how to read music and understand the language of it. You will learn how to play some of your favorite songs/instrumental pieces and learn some that you might not know. We'll discover what you really want to learn and achieve through taking lessons, and we will work toward those goals!
Discipline is vital to musical progress and daily practice is strongly urged, in order for the student to progress. If a students don't practice, they won't progress. Because of that, you can expect that I will encourage consistent and regular practice, always keeping in mind that the study of music is meant to be fun.
Knowing from experience how "boring" it can be to learn by rote, I combine technical work with fun time playing duets together, improvising, and exploring a wide variety of styles and genres of music.
I would be honored to share my knowledge and love of music with you. Give yourself a priceless gift that will last a lifetime!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano /Hammond Organ

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have their own instrument. I can provide the music stand and I always bring my own instrument so that I can demonstrate during lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Teaching methods: Suzuki and traditional /formal method, in group and one on one settings

My son Zain and I really enjoyed his first lesson with Zb. As this was Zain's very first piano lesson ever, I was glad to see that Zb started out by teaching him how his overall posture and arm movements should be. I was impressed by this especially because when I learned to play trumpet years ago, I learned some non-optimal habits early on that plagued me all through my time playing. I'm happy that Zain is being taught good habits from the very beginning by Zb!

How many Suzuki Violin students can say that they are studying with a Suzuki teacher who studied directly under Dr. Suzuki in Japan when he was alive?

As much as I enjoy working with my most advanced students I never lose my enthusiasm for starting each new beginning student. My aspiration is to provide the most accessible age-appropriate violin instruction for every student whether they are age 3 or 93.

I work closely with parents so that their children can achieve their best with age appropriate activities and as much joy and satisfaction as possible. More advanced students require custom designed methods that meet their needs. My job as a teacher is to free students from their ...

I have been teaching violin since 1998. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

From the basic bow hold to false harmonics, we can cover it all on the violin. I focus on the goals of the musician, and let my students guide their own learning.

About Mark
I am a professional violist working in the central Illinois region. I've been playing the viola for 21 years, and also am comfortable on the violin as well. I received my Bachelors of Arts from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2004, double majoring in Music Performance (viola) and in Philosophy. Afterwards, I completed my Masters of Music in 2010 at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois.

I frequently play with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia da Camera, Peoria Symphony Orchestra, Milliken-Decatur Symphony Orchestra, Danville Symphony Orchestra, and others.

In addition to music, my passions carry over to argumentation, literature, long distance running, and writing. I have a fierce eye for grammar and composition, and love to work with students to better their writing and understanding.

Students are given detailed instructions on how to practice and eventually how to create their own practice sessions. Julia is very patience and work with students of all ages. She believes that the biggest challenges for adult music students is not skipping lessons or practice sessions. She is convinced through experience that adult beginners can achieve great improvement if they put as much consistent efforts in the instruments as the younger students. So, practice more!

About Julia
Experienced violin teacher with Master degree in violin performance. Julia likes to play violin or piano with the students on a weekly basis to ensure the students get plenty of ensemble time before getting into orchestra. Her focus on techniques helps the students to be more expressive with the music. She is also Suzuki Certified and could use a combination of Suzuki method or traditional method. She teaches music theory and harmony to students who are interested in the subject and also introduce composition skills into lessons.

I am looking for students who are willing to have fun and play some of their favorite pieces, and students who want to be the best in their school or region. If that sounds like you, contact me today! I can't wait to work with you!

"Music is more than notes, techniques or intellectual games. Music has to express itself without
filters of explanation or being classified with prejudice. " Florina Georgia Conn
I have discovered violin when I was seven. At nine, I enrolled as a student at "Dinu Lipatti"
Music High School in Bucharest, Romania, after which I started my journey with the piano, helping me
to discover new horizons about the wonderful world of music.
Subsequent graduating high school, I attended the National University of Music, Bucharest,
Romania, achieving a bachelor degree in violin performance and a master degree in Chamber Music -
Violin. I have performed as a first violinist with various orchestral ensembles, having the pleasure to
play as a soloist and being part of various chamber music ensembles, achieving a plethora of musical
experiences within my
country and abroad ... while being employed with Sibiu State Philharmonic.
Especially pleasant and eye opening were performances I have put out with international artists,
classical, folk, rock and Irish musical bands. All these allowed me to express my free spirit through
what I love the most – Music.
At the end of 2014 I got married and moved to Milford, Michigan. Since 2015 I play with some
of the most prestigious orchestras in the State: Lansing, Flint, Saginaw, Oakland, Rochester and others.
Being able to make the notes come to life is a gift I have received from fellow artists and I have
the responsibility to gift it as well . That is why, teaching is for me a way to plant a seed of beauty,
kindness, light, and make it grow with the magic of music.

All musical instruments require attention and maintenance. When it comes to the violin, however, it is easy to forget that the bow needs as much care as the instrument itself. After all, the way you treat your violin bows will affect the way the violin sounds. If too much resin builds up on the hairs, for example, the sound will come out wrong.
