    These lessons were different from my other beginner experiences because my child was more interested in the details of the music. Hannah really looked forward to playing her instrument with her teacher- Music Monday afternoons became one of our favorite parts of the week!

    Frequently asked questions

    The violin itself is an instrument with a slow learning curve, and can often be frustrating for a beginner at first. I like to make this experience fun and interactive, as we learn the basics of holding the instrument, body posture, and making the first sounds of the violin. 

    - First, we will learn about the instrument itself: its construction, history, and some of the physics involved that is important to know when playing!

    -We will start interacting with the instrument itself, learning bow hold and how to hold the instrument.
