Each lesson will be taught in response to current needs of a student but the following are the parts that make up an entire lesson: - Technique - Theory - Music - Practice All together are basic fundamentals. My job as a teacher is to help you find a place for music in your daily life and to make a practice time more of an experimental discovery play, than boring work. Once you find a key, it opens up a whole new world of communication. As a private violin instructor, I believe that education is impossible without student’s motivation and passion. Perhaps you have decided to become a professional musician or maybe you want to play for your own enjoyment... Whatever your goals are, I can lead you there! Let's make it happen together because it is never late to follow a dream! I recommend younger children travel to me for the best learning experience.

Hello, This is Sunny who is teaching violin with easy and fun. With lots of teaching experience, I have a well-organized curriculum and I am passionate with teaching. What I think is important in teaching is making students enjoy playing violin. That is the biggest thing I care in the lesson so I try to make the lesson fun and interesting. If you have any questions about lesson schedule or anything, please feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to it. According to different levels of the students, I will use various methods to teach. I am very careful with students’ posture in the beginning because I don’t want them to get tired in the future by playing the violin or piano. Also, I would love my students to note their practice time, and send me some practice videos, so I am able to keep track of them! I will also send some videos to the parents to let them know that their kids are doing well!
