    Learning to Balance the Violin One of the first steps in playing the violin is holding the instrument. We are actually ‘balancing’ the violin, which means finding a stable placement of the violin between the head, collarbone and shoulder so there is an even distribution of weight. There is a simple scientific principal to keep in mind, namely gravity. Because of gravity, the violin will fall to the ground unless we find the best place for the violin. Resting Head on Violin The head can simply rest on the violin. It is not necessary to grip the violin with head and shoulders once balance is

    Teaching is very important to me as a musician because it allows me to impart my knowledge and experience onto my students. I believe everyone has the ability to learn how to play the violin whether beginning as a child, teenager or adult. The most important element is that the student has the determination to learn puts the practice and work into it everyday so that he or she may continue to develop and grow on the Violin. I teach each of my students based on what is best for their needs. Every person is different and develops at different rates. I teach privately and have taught in schools

    Finding an educated player and finding a good teacher are two completely different things. When I see other teacher's profiles, they boast of the years of training they had. Anyone can learn and play. Not anyone can teach. PATIENCE When you know how to teach properly, you have a seemingly endless resource of patience. This is because what the student sees as "patient" is really just a small step in the educational process. It is a fraction of time just before a correction. When you have something new to teach, whether it is a new technique, or a correction of something being done imp

Rozanna Weinberger Violin Lessons

Rozanna Weinberger · New York, NY


WHO OR WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START TEACHING?

I come from a musical family and it wasn’t unusual for us to put on family concerts, whether for our neighbors in our garage or formal stage. From early on as a child I passionately loved music but was also inspired by young students my age, who were devoting much of their young lives to playing and mastering an instrument. While this meant working hard, I was always motivated by hearing incredible concerts of music I had a passion to play.

I was inspired to start teaching because I had great teachers. Many of these teachers were inspiring because of how great they played, some because of their inspiration, passion and incite about the music and others because they had a refined understanding of technique and how to play with ease, comfort and confidence.

In addition I developed a great passion for how to play with naturalness and ease because when I was 15 I broke my neck! While I was fortunate to have recovered from this incident without any residual effect on my movements, but continued to have technical challenges due to the fusion in my neck as well as muscle trauma around the effected area. This challenge would also prove

My mother. From my youngest age, I recall listening to my mom sing songs as she did housework throughout the day. She would make up melodies effortlessly and from this I learned there was a naturalness to music that makes it universally appealing for everyone.

I was also super inspired to take lessons and be surrounded by young colleagues at music camps that practiced hard and loved music.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOU JOB?

I love that my work is diversified because I try to lead a creative life. I love teaching and helping students discover easier ways to play and more confidence in their abilities. Its especially fun when students discover areas that are too tense, particularly in shoulders and upper arms. When players realize bowing doesn’t have to feel so hard or strenuous, that too is a great thing. I also love creating violins that are part of my educational philosophy to encourage creativity in children on multiple levels. I love helping students discover new possibilities by cultivating their creativity.

WHAT TYPES OF STUDENTS HAVE YOU WORKED WITH?

I’ve worked with students young & old, professional and amateur. I believe music and the pursuit of refining a skill and artistic nature are good for the soul, whether one pursues a career or not. Often non professional students want to enjoy an outlet and also don’t want to be judged for their playing level. As such I try to create an atmosphere of mutual respect where player can focus on their love of learning.

With younger students, or those aspiring for a career in music I think a couple areas of focus are important. The 1st is to help student organize their technical movements so they feel free yet effective in playing technique and expressing themselves musically. The 2nd thing I consider important is helping students have a creative approach to their learning process.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PASSION FOR TEACHING

As touched upon in previous question, helping students play with technical ease, using their body to play with ease and joy, is rewarding as a teacher. And its something I love to work on because I worked through these issues ‘the hard way’, having broken my neck at 15 and having to unravel the difficulties that no professional viola teacher could fully grasp. While this was a challenging road, I learned from studying the most fundamental components of technique, how to learn from the kinesthetic signals of the muscles to hone and refine my technical approach. What I’ve learned is something I’m passionate about sharing, in part because when students develop kinesthetic awareness in their approach they can ultimately become their own best teacher.

There is something phenomenally empowering about discovering theres no technical problem one can ultimately unravel for oneself. In this regard my teaching is unique compared to most other approaches. I’ve also written significantly on this topic as I believe many players and teachers need a better understanding of the mechanics of technique, starting with the skeleton and how that impacts efficient use of muscles.

The 2nd part of my passion for teaching comes from a desire to cultivate entrepreneurial abilities for students. If students can learn to rely on their creativity there is a better chance they can navigate changing professional waters in this day and age. That means using ones creative skills to discover new musical possibilities for oneself and the world.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE ASPIRING STUDENTS?

Follow your heart. As Marc Anthony once said, ‘If you love what you do and cultivate your genuine desire and love of music, the discipline to work hard will generally follow. As Marc Anthony once said, ‘If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life!’
