Violin Lessons in Orlando – Not Just for Beethoven and Bocephus

By Chris R. - Orlando Violin Teacher

A hot night spot is packed with people looking to kick off their evening. Canned music pumps through the sound system as the band sets up. The band members look like the usual suspects. There's the drummer, adjusting the height on the ride symbol. The bass player fiddles with the nobs on his amp. The guitarist checks her tuning one last time. The violinist puts a last swipe of rosin on his bow.

Wait! Was that really a violinist? What kind of band is this? Is this country night? Are they going to do covers of Bach and Beethoven?

Pre
tty soon the band starts to play. Is it rock? Yes, it's rock – but there's something more. Something that the violin does to the rock that gives it something different, something more. It's something... irresistible!

Is that just a fairy tale? Absolutely not! It's a reality that is becoming more and more prevalent around the world and right here in town, as more and more people are taking violin lessons in Orlando. Being pigeonholed into a few specific genres is a thing of the past for the modern violinist. National acts like Yellowcard, Miri Ben-Ari (the hip-hop violinist) and Black Violin are paving the way for a new generation of violinists.

As for me? Sure, I was trained classically and loved it. But now I enjoy playing with my rock band, Hotel Hurry, as much as I do performing a Beethoven symphony with the Maitland Symphony Orchestra. Look out music world - the violinists are coming and we want it all! Join us and sign up for violin lessons in Orlando today!

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 ...

Orlando, FL

This instrument can be a challenge, but worth it..

About Michael

I have been teaching for 41 years and opened 14 music schools. Ages 3-96. Taught and performed in Michigan, Arizona and Florida. *** Lesson Details *** Everyone has the ability to learn. Do not let someone tell you different. It is either the wrong teacher or wrong method for you if you are having difficulty. It is never the student. I use many combined methods to fit the individual student accoring to their skill level, desires and overcoming any difficulties. I have two recitals a year and video tape them so the student can see and hear their progress. In addition to piano I also teach keyboard, organ, improve, stand up comedy, recording, and ballroom dance ( won grand nationals in tango ). *** Studio Equipment *** professional studio seating for parents yamaha ...

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 ...

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!
