I've been teaching violin and viola for almost 20 years and many of my students have won prestigious placements in the local orchestras. If you are a dedicated and curious student, you'll be able to improve your understanding of our craft and as time goes on you'll be able to take some interesting steps on this path. Since my background training happens to be in the best traditions of Russian violin school, my big emphasis is on the techniques and musicality. I use all kinds of books and methods, from Suzuki to Schradieck. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
About Mariam H.

Have you always dreamed about learning to play violin with a professional and passionate teacher? Then I would like to meet you! My name is Mariam and I am a professional musician/violin teacher with a Master's Degree from the University of Texas in Austin. I have lived, played violin and taught all over the world. Some years ago I was a part of a String Faculty as a Violin Professor at the Mahidol University in Thailand, and here I have played with the Austin Symphony and Austin Opera. Being a musician, I got to travel and to live all over the world. During my vast experience in many countries on three continents I have come across all kinds of people interested in music. Beginners and advanced, professionals and amateurs, adults and children. Some of them felt attracted to it by a yet undiscovered force, some searched for the last pieces of mosaic that would complete the whole picture of their lives. To some of them, music has finally given answers while to others it posed even more complicated questions. But, as Ludwig van Beethoven has put it, "Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy." I believe music has a uniting power over us all, how ever different we might seem at first. A good performance is a reminder of an incredibly benevolent guiding force behind. And sparkling eyes of a child (or adult), proud of his first major achievement on this path are totally worth hours of hard work and even occasional frustration. That's why in my teaching I try to guide and nourish what Nature has given, sharing with my students knowledge and appreciation of this wonderful art. It is my belief that even if one has a rough day, once a person enters this incredible world of music, he or she will always be truly happy. "If you look deep enough you will see music; the heart of nature being everywhere music." Thomas Carlyle Let the music begin! *** Lesson Details *** Welcome, students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to advanced, all those who dream about learning how to play violin and enjoy music! Besides regular lessons I offer preparation for entrance examinations to music schools and colleges in Europe and USA, scholarship and orchestra auditions, ABRSM, IGCSE, A-level exams etc. I am familiar with almost every system and style out there, be it Suzuki, Royal or anything in between but of course I myself come from the great Russian school of playing and I use a lot of its style in my teaching. However, fear not, I am not strict at all, only encouraging and trying to bring out the best in each and every student. I also teach online lessons now via Skype and am available nationwide and internationally! *** Specialties *** Russian style

Teacher's Studio

Mariam is energetic, clear and kind. She is very educated and experienced. I come from a Suzuki background and had not played for a few years. Mariam was able to work with me easily.

Wonderful exciting teacher I have had several lessons now and have not only learned a lot, but enjoyed my lesson time. Mariam is very fun and pushes me to try new things while keeping me reviewing the old. I get a high quality teacher in my home every week that wants me to improve as much as I want to improve my violin skills. After just two lessons people I have played for have commented on just how much I have improved lately.
