    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

    --- At this moment I'm not taking new students in Los Angeles, due to many international commitments. However I'm teaching via Skype, accepting new students with a reduced fee. --- I was seven years old when I had my first contact with the violin. A violin teacher, who was offering lessons after school time, played on my class and I was mesmerized by the instrument at that exact moment! It is an honor to be able to share my passion for the violin with my students. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a children's smile after they learn to play their first song on the violin.
