My name is Heather Kani and I am an undergraduate student studying music education. I am looking to give lessons to some new students while I am home over the summer and can continue to teach via Skype. I teach multiple group violin classes through Marywood University's String Project as well as teach many violin students starting from age 4. I am very passionate about music and love seeing progress with my students.
Heifetz said once, in a scripted interview, responding to a question about what it takes to be a great violinist, "You must have self respect as an artist." So everything I do as a teacher is designed to creat justifiable confidence.I teach great physical ease as an essential part of technique and music-making. I also teach from the beginning how to phrase and how to infuse the phrasing with emotional power. My teaching is basically the approach of D. C. Dounis (I studied with David Nadien) and Alexander Technique. ... View Profile

I have been playing viola and violin for over 17 years. Over those years I have studied, practiced, and performed many times. Whether I performed in school orchestras, community orchestras or local musicals - Whether I practiced for NYSSMA, sight-read duets with a friend, or locked myself in a practice room at college - Music has always been a huge part of my life. I have studied with many teachers and from each of them I grew not just as a player, but as a teacher myself. You can always continue to learn, this is a fact I remind myself of every day. Playing and teaching music is one of my biggest passions in life and g ... View Profile

The Music Box provides music instruction on all instruments for all ages. Located in rural, Poughquag, NY, we have been creating musicians since 1997! Our building houses eight lesson rooms, a recital room and a store for lesson books, sheet music and all music related accessories. We rent and sell band and orchestra instruments.

My approach is warm and communicative. I grew up sometimes intimidated by my teachers in private lessons and I don't want that to happen with any of my students. I want us both to have fun teaching and learning. If not, what's the point? I also believe that learning is worth it. It's good for everyone. Whatever level you are in your pursuit, there is nothing as satisfying as meeting or getting closer to your personal goals. Helping you get there by coaching and teaching is a really joyful and meaningful thing for me. ... View Profile

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 achieved with the violin and body. This is a tria ...
