I am currently offering violin lessons for anyone in any level! I want to share the joy of playing violin with students, whether it's your first go at it or if you're interested in honing skill sets or if you're working towards an audition or recital.

For beginners: We will start with the proper positions of how to hold the violin and bow. From here, we will expand into solidifying note reading, and note association with the violin. Depending on progress, I will then introduce short pieces.

For those who do not know how to read any music, I offer theory as well.

For intermediate: We will review proper violin and bow hold, go over scales, arpeggios and begin different violin positions and vibrato! Very exciting. I will discuss how best to practise, focus is essential for efficiency. We will cover a variety of short works.

For advanced players: Depending on your goals, this is flexible. Overall, an overview of correct technique, working on the expression of musical ideas, whilst exploring a variety of repertoire. If you are preparing for auditions, orchestral or for school or you need someone to practise for, I can offer my experience and knowledge.

About Christine W.

I remember the first time I saw a violin and knew I wanted to take lessons. My first teacher lived just down the road from me, I loved my lessons, and couldn't wait to learn piece after piece. I ended up learning with him from 5 to 18 years of age after which I went to America to earn a Bachelor of Music at Eastman School of Music and a Master of Music at Rice University. I have performed in various professional ensembles and orchestras including Houston Symphony, and in Australia: Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. I am currently the Assistant Concertmaster of San Antonio Symphony.

As well as experience in teaching violin, I was a TA for aural skills and theory during my Masters. I am currently offering violin and theory lessons.

I have known Christine since 2015. She is a very detail-oriented, highly advanced violinist and her demeanor is professional and caring. She would make a fantastic teacher for all ages and levels.

Ms. Wang is my colleague at the San Antonio Symphony. Not only is she a fantastic violinist, she is also a lovely person! Ms. Wang is the type of violinist who truly understands what she is doing and how, and this translates to her excellent abilities as a teacher. Her attention to detail is meticulous; she always has a very clear idea of what she is looking for in a particular passage, and a plan of action for making that happen, whether it's with a good fingering, bowing, or mental preparation. I have no doubt that she can help you to excel no matter what your current level is.
