--- 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

For our students, we find crucial these 3 things: diversity of styles, educational comfort & fun, and a  proper teaching method. 1. Style diversity.  Some schools and teachers focus on classical music, not giving too much credit to other styles. Others prefer pop and rock, thinking that classical music is too serious. We teach many styles - classical, pop, jazz, musical, rock, music from TV & film, or even video games - depending on a student's interests, skills and abilities.  2. Comfort and fun.  We believe that every student, no matter their age or level, should feel comfortable during class and have some fun ... View Profile
