If the student is new to the instrument we will start with understanding the parts of the instrument, then how to hold it properly, then begin to work on proper technique. They are quickly introduced to notation so they will learn how to read as soon as possible. I move students along quickly so they will be able to play music they want to learn as soon as possible.
I have a Master of Music Degree and have been teaching for 25 years. I also have experience teaching band. I have taught Suzuki violin at college. I also have professional band experience, playing keyboards, guitar, bass guitar, and singing.
Yes, all 30 minute lessons are just $20. Most books are included in the lesson fees.
I witnessed several violin students in the Suzuki program at one of the colleges I attended who had very poor technique. Because of that they sounded pretty bad and weren't enjoying playing. I offered some simple tips for most of them which corrected they main issues with their technique. It was a joy to see their eyes light up when their tone improved and they actually sounded good. I have always enjoyed seeing students fall in love with music.
I have worked with ADHD students, the elderly, people who thought they could never play an instrument well, casual learners to very committed students.
My student recitals are always awesome! Some kids are nervous while others are confident but all leave with a sense of pride.
