A lesson with music theory, performance tips, and of course playing music! I have been teaching for 6 years. In 2013 I received my Bachelors Degree in music from Bluefield College. I have played for the Rappahannock Youth Symphony and the Bluefield College Orchestra and I have in duets and trios with members of the Roanoke Symphony. I enjoy playing music, because music echoes the soul. Everyone may speak a different language, but all musicians speak the same language of notes and rhythm.
About Dawnn F.

I have been playing violin, viola and cello for 21 years at the age of only 27. I am the Principal Conductor of Ovation Youth Symphony Orchestra. Previously, I was the Assistant Conductor of the Crossroads Youth Orchestra. I have been teaching for 11 years. I have experience teaching children as young as 6 and adults age 70. My lessons include the fundamentals of the instrument as well as fun songs and activities to keep the lesson interesting. In 2013 I received a Bachelors Degree in Law as well as Instrumental Music and Music Theory from Bluefield College. I have played for the Rappahannock Youth Symphony and the Bluefield College Orchestra and I have in duets and trios with members of the Roanoke Symphony. I have play for local wineries, art museums and restaurants; I also play weddings, dinner parties and private events. I enjoy playing music, because music echoes the soul and releases the mind. Everyone may speak a different language, but all musicians speak the same language of notes and rhythm. I have always enjoyed playing string instruments, because they are so powerful. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons are a 30 or 60 minute once a week unless otherwise agreed upon on a per student basis. My lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of each student. If a student is involved in school music ensembles, we will work with their lesson books from school in addition to material outside of the books, including Essential Elements 2000 and Suzuki, as well as teacher-created materials. We will focus on building proper tone production and individual technique - something that often is difficult to learn in a large ensemble setting. I can start a beginning student on any classical string instrument (violin, viola, cello). When I begin with students and work with them through their all levels of method books. For advanced students, I work from selected etude books on developing advanced skills and can work with students on audition pieces for honors bands/orchestras or college auditions and specialized magnet schools.

She is very thorough! She already has me reading notes after one lesson.

I had a great experience because Dawnn is an amazing Violin instructor. She taught lessons with a high degree of professionalism and care. As a novice, I was able to learn a lot because Dawnn is patient and attentive to my learning style.
