I taught myself to play-by-ear. I now can teach others, this unique gift. I was playing professionally, before I had any training. My parents were advised to avoid stifling me with formal lessons. This caused me to passionately hunger for that formal education. And I put myself through music college as a result. I did very well, and with ease, because I already understood music, in practice. I believe in the concept that: We could get milk out of the refrigerator, before we could spell it. And we could say "refrigerator", before we could read the word. Why should music be any different?" Understanding what a refrigerator is, and why we need i ... View Profile

In the 1st lesson, I always ask the student what their goals are, what kind of music they want to play, what problems they have, etc.  Then I test them on basic skills to find ‘holes’ in their knowledge/skills to find the right level to start.  I have an uncanny ability to discover their main problem areas and/or misunderstood terminology and get to work right away handling them. It's rewarding to see students very quickly begin to brighten up as they clear away years of confusion and musical barriers. I’ve met many seasoned pros who have holes in their knowledge or skill that have prevented them from reaching the ... View Profile

--- At this moment I'm not taking new students in Los Angeles, I'm only accepting Skype students due to a job position in Brazil that forces me to travel often. Music theory and violin lessons work great on skype and it cost less, since the teacher does not have to travel to your house.--- --They are not good only for someone who is completely new to the violin, since in the very beginning it is fundamental to be able to correct posture. If that's your case I can recomend a good violin teacher in the Los Angeles area. --- I was seven years old when I had my first contact with the violin. A violin teacher, who wa ... View Profile

During the last ten years of teaching, I have encountered many different types of students at a wide range of ages (4 to 65+ years old). Throughout my teaching experience, I have learned to adapt to my students before I make them adapt to me. That way, the students felt more comfortable and were more encouraged to learn and succeed. At this point in my life, teaching became something natural rather than a planned process. Nevertheless, I plan my lessons according to the students’ needs. Even though I started learning music at an early age, I believe that it is never too late to learn since music is one of the most beautiful languages a ... View Profile
