About Pedro V.

I offer lessons to students that have a desire to improve their playing and knowledge of music.

A brief summarization of my process:

-Establish concepts for healthy practice routine with the student. The type of practice is more important than the raw amount of practice.

-Set a 3-4 month goal for study outlining key issues.
-Identify strengths and areas of improvement in the student as they appear in the weeks.
-At the end of the 3 months, all this work and practice comes together in either a recital or a special project (audition, recording, etc.).

-Retrospective review and planning for next set of months.

Within the above framework, I try to encourage:

-Appreciation of music and learning as a whole
-Organization! And techniques to improve it.
-Analytical skills (micro and macro)
-Initiative -- taking a proactive attitude towards one’s learning
-Communication

Pedro is an excellent teacher. He's able to blend the technical aspects of playing with the artistry of the instrument. I've already learned a great deal from him in only five lessons.

Versatile Instructor for All Ages

I'm an adult student, but you can feel a comfort and relaxed atmosphere in the immediate presence of Pedro. This is such an important factor in learning an instrument. This feeling would serve to greatly help and child right on through adult learning. Good Job!

Excellent and encouraging teacher

I was apprehensive about starting violin lessons for the first time at 31, thinking that it would be impossible to pick up or that it would be years before I'd see real progress, but I've been taking lessons with Pedro for a little over a month now and I am already feeling confident playing a few songs, and am very eager to continue progressing further. Pedro has been great about adjusting my lesson plan to fit my personal goals and experience. He has been extremely encouraging which is important in learning such a difficult instrument, and he is able to apply his experience and critical eye to suggest simple adjustments and exercises to work on each week that I find to vastly improve the tone and quality of my violin playing. It is this real, measurable progress that makes me eager to pick up my violin each day and continue applying myself, and I am confident that with Pedro's instruction I will continue to improve each week.

A Great Experience.

I look forward to my weekly lessons. I have learned a lot in 2 months, and I am still eager to learn more. I see a great deal of improvement in my playing and understanding of music and my instrument. I am somewhat mechanical in my approach to learning and was afraid at first that it would be difficult to learn the violin, but my instructors encouragement and patience has made me more interested in my choice of instrument.
