Dr. Kao Violin Lesson

Dr. Kao Violin Lesson


About this pro

Over 40 years, Dr. Kao's experience in the field of playing violin and teaching violin is an invaluable asset to his students. He is now a First Violin with Orchestras. He was not a music major in college, yet he has been playing with violin majors as First Violin in orchestras. This can be tested  as he played with violin majors at college, at graduate school, and at the University of South Dakota while pursuing his Ed.D. degree.

What is the philosophy behind this? He considers that learning to play violin is just one of the ways to enrich one's life. We don't have to become a violinist, but we can learn to play violin as our interest. 

If you are looking for a music major to teach you, please stop here and try to find somebody else.Or else you can trust all my experience and I can be your violin teacher. What I know is not just about music, all the background of my knowledge and experience can be very beneficial to my violin students.

Begins from zero.

Watching my students improving from zero's up. They begin to know what is playing, and I begin to enjoy the result of my hard work.
