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.
