Private Violin Teacher

Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus my lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and like to teach what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small piece of playing an instrument. In lessons, I also teach proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have students from age 4 to retirement age. Early beginner to preparing for college ...

I had a great first lesson with Damien. He is patient and extremely considerate. Damien took the time to determine a baseline of my general knowledge. He answered my questions and fully explained the concepts that we discussed. At all times I felt that I was having a positive experience and I have set goals for my next lesson. I am energized and motivated to continue and look forward to my next lesson with Damien.

Online Violin Teacher

Hello! My name is Jenny, and I've been teaching violin for 20 years. I started playing violin when I was 9 years old through my school's music program, and went on to double major at college for Violin and Piano Performance. The violin is a incredible instrument, waiting to tell your story by how you play it! I realize that no two people learn the same way, and am dedicated to helping each student understand fully what they are learning. When I was in elementary school orchestra, I didn't understand the way the teacher taught to read the notes, so I followed those around me and didn't learn to read music well. I was embarrassed and tried to hide this from everyone for years, until I realized I was just hurting myself and learned the right way. I can promise that I don't give up on any student, and work hard to explain everything fully. There are no stupid questions! I specialize in proper holding and technique, bowing styles, reading music, and playing a variety of styles. I have ...

As a new student, getting the basics with learning notes,
proper holding of the bow, and general maintenance for the bow and violin; was all new and important to me.

Online Violin Teacher

As a violin teacher, I love helping my students achieve their goals!
I believe not only the results matter, but also the journey. I focus my lessons on helping the student learn and have a deeper understanding of music theory, harmony, rhythm, technique, and how all those apply to the violin. I specialize in classical music and I use methods such as Suzuki, Essential Elements, and many others to help you become a better violinist. The lessons take place in a relaxed and fun setting :)

About Tania

I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years but my love for teaching started about 10 years ago! I became fascinated with teaching as not only I have learned so much about myself as a musician and person but most importantly I have learned how to help my students become better musicians.

First class was a great experience! Super engaging, charismatic and motivating!
Erin
Tania has been so amazing. We have only had one in home session before the COVID-19 restrictions came about. She has basically had to teach both myself and my daughter how to tune and play the violin. Her patience and creativity have been so helpful. My daughter is 6, and her attention span is not the greatest. I really appreciate Tania's patience and ability to keep her focused and engaged.
Stefan
I am an adult learner, I started with a different instructor but I was frustrated with a number of things. I contacted Tania with my frustrations and then started lessons. She has been a joy to work with. Her first question to me was what my goals were. I really appreciated this, because I am an adult who has carved out 30-60 minutes each day to practice. So I definitely have goals. The overall goal of improving is nicely balanced with pieces and styles that I find interesting and enjoyable. My previous teacher was not very attentive to body mechanics and so I was hitting a wall both in terms of ability and comfort. I mentioned to him my back was hurting and he thought I was making conversation rather than asking for help. I didn't even need to tell Tania my back was hurting after practicing, because she starting suggesting tweaks to my mechanics after watching me play for just a few minutes. Playing immediately became more comfortable and enjoyable. Tania understands that playing violin is parts listening, mechanics, theory and playing. When I'm having trouble with one we will discuss parts of the others and a first it didn't seem related then suddenly I see a convection between the different parts and the connection makes my playing better. I would absolutely recommend Tania. She has a deep understanding of the topic and makes learning violin funner and easier. Scheduling has always been easy.

"As an adult student, Nicholas is a fantastic instructor. He corrects technique rather than focusing on small mistakes (like a flubbed note). He's very easy to work with and challenges me each lesson so that I am never bored and never feel like I am wasting time working on perfecting a two note exercise because he pushes me to play further and further in the practice book. Absolutely the best experience for an adult student (any student, really)."
