My name is Aubree Oliverson and I absolutely love teaching and playing the violin! Because I have trained for so many years to be a classial violin soloist (one of the most competitive musical fields in the world), I have been taught by the very best teachers and I am excited to pass the best stuff along to you! :) I have been teaching for years now and I love helping with technique, practice strategies, and guiding students in developing their own inner musicality. I teach all kinds of exercises to help build control and flexibility. We will build on techniques and pieces in a way that each new one adds to the last one, and each new piece presents a new challenge, but also solidifies what we have already worked on. And we might even have some fun doing it, too. I generally teach out of the Suzuki books for beginners, but with some other supplemental materials to go along with the pieces in the books.
I also work as a violin tutor (someone to help you/your child practice in between lessons with your regular teacher). Many parents find, especially if there are no other classical violinists in the home, that it can be helpful to have someone practice a few days a week with their child. It is not required, however, and I am always available for phone calls or texts between lessons to help you/your child get the most out of your practice days! I will be there for you as a teacher!
For a sample of my playing, search "Aubree Oliverson violin" on YouTube, or go to my website at https://lessonswithaubree.wixsite.com/violin-1
I have taken lessons from Aubree for about 6 years and she has transformed the way I play. Since she has received extended training from some of the best teachers in America and beyond, she knows a wide variety of techniques that will benefit your playing in the best way possible. She is kind, patient, and personable when she teaches and truly encourages me to try my best. She has helped me believe in my abilities as a violinist and has inspired me with confidence through her uplifting teaching methods. She is very knowledgeable and I trust her completely to teach me the most correct way possible in my technique and styling. I would highly recommend her as a teacher not just because of her skill as a teacher, but also because of her admirable character.
I first hired Aubree as a violin practice tutor when my daughter was 11. For the past three years, Aubree’s role transitioned from tutor to teacher. My daughter’s technique grew exponentially due to Aubree’s tutelage. Not only is Aubree a virtuosic violinist and an amazing performer, she’s also a very competent, honest, caring and compassionate teacher. Her training and resume speaks for itself. Aubree is truly one of the most special people we’ve ever met and she leaves a positive influence in my daughter’s life musically and in other fundamental ways.
Aubree is an amazing teacher! She knows just how to help my child be the best she can be. She provides a great balance of technique, repertoire and musicality. You will love Aubree!
Aubree is a phenomenal teacher! She is knowledgeable and diligent in violin pedagogy. I have improved immensely and have learned to appreciate playing the violin even more.
I have been teaching since I was 14 years old, and I absolutely love it. I have been trained by the very best and I will make sure you are taught good technique. My past teachers have included Deborah Moench (one of the former most famous teachers for young students in the nation), Eugene Watanabe (a graduate of the Curtis Institute), and currently Robert Lipsett. Since I travel quite a bit as a performer, some people like having a regular full-time teacher and then using me to help their children practice for a number of hours each week, (tutor lessons) and regular check-ups over videochat when I am away. For others (usually students who have already been playing for a couple of years and don't as need as much in-person technique correction), it works for me to do regular online lessons as their main teacher.
$30/30min, $45/45min, $60/hr, $90/90min.
I have worked with absolutely all levels, from professional violinists to those who have never held a violin before. And I love all of it.
