Jill H. Winter Springs, FL

Learn how to play violin with the bow and pizzicato, with the fingers. Learn good posture, care of the instrument, tuning, up and down bowing along with playing musically. Listening skills are important for the beginner, so listening to the correct pitch is part of learning to play the violin. Unlike most other instruments, there is no button to push or hole to cover rather the fingers of the left hand must be able to match the correct pitch while fine tuning to the ear. Simple melodies are learned using the open strings, D scale, A scale, G scale and C scale are among the theory that will be taught in this class.

About Jill

Jill holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and has master's work in choral music. For many years she has taught private and group music lessons to all ages and many varying styles of singing and instrumental music. Her lessons are unlike the ones she remembers from childhood; Jill's lessons are full of creativity, fun and excitement. It is amazing how students improve with each lesson. Jill brings more than just technique to the studio, she strives to find the best in each student and then concentrates on improving each individual's strengths and then delves into ways to correct the weaknesses. Since Jill is a vocal soloist, instrumentalist, accompanist and director, she knows what it takes to prepare and rehearse and therefore she makes it clear which concept the student ...

Jill is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and creative in teaching, good at communicating her musical ideas with children. My son progressed a lot under her instruction. We really hate to say goodbye to her because we have to leave America. Her classes are part of our best memories here.

One awesome teacher

Jill is one of the hidden jewels you hear people speak of; in Jill's case she is the hidden jewel when it comes to music teachers. Her never ceases to amaze in her abilities and there are many. I've seen her multitask a group of children during a performance, all playing different instruments simultaneously, without missing a note of her own piano playing. She's a born leader and teacher, a consummate musical artist. Everything she does is golden, truly! She was the first teacher who was able to teach me rhythm in my left hand, I'm really not musically inclined, yet she was able to teach me how to play the piano pressing me pass my own ability. It's nice to sit down and be able to play something at the piano instead of just wishing I could. When it comes to small children, she's a hoot and so patient, all the kids love and adore her. My own grandson took lessons from Jill and gain such confidence in his ability he is now learning to play the cello, he simply loves music. Jill instills confidence in children and adults. She has a 'yes you can' attitude and it flows into her students. She's a winner and a true gem. You'll not regret having Jill as a teacher.

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

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 ...

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 ...

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?

Pretty 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 ...
