About Leasa

Hi. I have been playing violin since the age of 10 -- that was forty-five years ago! I have played off and on for most of my adult life. My love for violin increased dramatically when I discovered fiddling. I am a fourth-generation fiddler. I have several college degrees and worked for many years as a computer programmer. I later received an elementary education degree, because my true love in life (after music) is teaching. Most of my teaching experience was in high school subjects (all of them!) in the juvenile justice system. I did teach music to kindergartners and had several older private students through Kindercare. For the kids: I am certified in the Mark O'Connor Method, which emphasizes music of the Americas and encourages creativity. Fun! For adults and interested youth: I

Aaron H.

Troy, MO

In these lessons you should expect to learn the basics of the violin. I can teach you how to hold the violin/bow, play notes, and read music. We would be using a hodgepodge of different techniques to accomplish this and to build basic good technique.

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs
Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly
