Hello my future students! I am international violinist with Master's degrees in Solo and Chamber Music Performance, specializing in teaching beginner, intermediate, advanced and university level students as well as coaching ensembles and quartets. My lessons are customized to students needs and aspirations with a strong emphasis on technique, theory, sight reading and ear training. I am very passionate about teaching violin and believe everyone can play this instrument. If you sign up with me, be ready to have fun learning how to play a violin and developing a wonderful skill of musicianship. Let's get started!

About Iuliia M.

I have been playing violin for 26 years. It is my passion and what makes me who I am. I enjoy sharing my inspiration with students. The happiest moment for me is to see their blooming curiosity for the art of violin playing. Teaching violin helps me to connect with people through music.

I hold a Bachelor in Musical Arts and a Master Degree in Solo Performance from Lviv National Music Academy named after Mykola Lysenko, Ukraine (2011 and 2012); Artist Diploma in Violin Performance from University of Tennessee, Knoxville (2014) and Master Degree in Chamber Music Performance from University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (2018). I was working in Lviv International Symphony Orchestra (INSO-Lviv) before I moved to USA. In the US, I have been a graduate teaching assistant, first violin of graduate quartet and a principal of student symphony orchestra. After graduation I founded my private violin studio working for Brass Bell Music Studios and Wauwatosa School of Music as well as performing with Festival City Symphony, Kenosha Symphony, Racine Symphony and Southwestern Suburban Symphony orchestras.

I use different teaching methods and school such as Russian (Auer, Yampolsky, Yankelevitch and Stoliarsky), Franko-Belgium and Czech. A lot of my young students like to begin with Suzuki method which has a great selection of materials for beginners. I customize lessons plans to each student's goals. Usually after month of lessons my beginner students learn how to hold violin and bow properly establishing a solid technique, making a good sound and of course playing different pieces. I combine teaching materials keeping my students involved and busy.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student is an individual. When we meet for a first time, I discuss a lesson plan based on my observation. A lesson is divided for a warm up, short theory part, working on materials, introducing new ideas and summary. I always have my violin next to me to demonstrate and play together with my students. Student is expected to have their own instrument and bow, accessories such as shoulder rest ( or practicing pad), rosin and their music. I very often share some materials with my students in pdf format. Because any art needs practicing, I highly encourage my students to practice at least 30 minutes a day for a beginner, one hour for intermediate level and two hours for advanced students.

Iuliia brings a wonderful technique to her playing and teaching, AND she is a kind and attentive person to work with! Having heard her give feedback for several years in the context of a university violin studio, I could always see that she really cares about contributing to the musical growth of each person and takes the time to observe and listen carefully.

Iuliia is a very knowledgeable teacher. She makes the lessons very enjoyable and fun. She is an amazing musician and can really take you to the next level. She specializes in classical music and can give you lots of advise on playing with orchestras, solo, and chamber music. I definitely recommend her as an educator.
