We will start off our lessons with introductions to the violin. In addition to posture and being able to appropriately hold and play the violin, you will develop a thorough understanding of basic music theory. We will incorporate music theory (reading notes, note values, notation, etc.) to every lesson. You will typically use Suzuki books to learn and develop different violin techniques. We will also spend a lot of time working on etudes/scales to compliment those newly learned techniques.
About Erica Q.

I was introduced to the violin at the early age of 5. I quickly found a deep passion for the violin and would play all day and night, much to my neighbors' dismay. I joined the NY Young Musicians' Ensemble, where I was given the opportunity to travel to Greece to play at numerous concert halls. I attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School as an instrumental major and took music theory/ history and ear training courses along with daily orchestra classes. At Hamilton College, I joined the orchestra and quartet ensemble, appropriately named, “Hamstrings”. I was asked to join the saxophone ensemble in 2015 and also took upon a Teacher Assistant position for a Jazz MOOC. In addition to my vast musical opportunities, I have also had many experiences working with children in education. After graduating from Hamilton College, I taught both 1 on 1 and group violin classes at Real Brave Music School in Queens, which allowed me to incorporate the Suzuki method into my own curriculum for beginner violinists. In November of 2016, I moved to Chongqing, China to work at Musicool Music & Art, where I was a Music Instructor, an English-Chinese interpreter, and Education Program Coordinator. I had the wonderful opportunity to develop comprehensive and innovative curricula to match the needs of multiple age groups, lead classes in both English and Mandarin Chinese, and assist other teachers in accurately interpreting class content. I was also responsible for overseeing program/curriculum development for the rest of the company, ensuring that each class had engaging and interactive elements. Please contact me for more information!
