Settlement Music School Diplomas in Violin, Viola, and Voice

Overview:
Music has effectively become a foundation of my being, since I discovered the healing qualities of quiet practice amidst turmoil at an early age. My goal is to share the restorative and growth qualities of musical experience with whomever is willing to undertake a journey of self discovery and expansion. My journey began with my first viola, which I studied under Viktor Repik, an acclaimed violinist from Russia, and continued to encompass guitar, vocals, and violin, as well as theory. My persistence has led me through 8 years of continuous practice, and has given me a foundation of peace and direction, which I hope to pass on to patient students!
EXPERIENCE
My teaching began inconspicuously, wherein I bought a friend her first classical guitar, and taught her from there, while helping a friend's daughter learn violin, and hence I continue to reach out to whomever is willing to take up lessons with me. I emphasize a 'holistic' approach which encompasses theory, imagination, and personal aptitude, based on the student, since, as honest teachers are coming to concede, inflexible, unyielding rigor is the least conducive to learning, and hence so many at a young age feel coerced and loathe music practice. But I like to consider the individual's predilections in forming an enjoyable curriculum, which encourages practice more finely.
METHODS USED
Depending on proficiency, I could start with notes, chords, scales, and/or theory, so long as one has aptitude to comprehend, because, in the long run, this will make learning advanced music much easier. Then I will transition into technique, without it being too boring, so Schradieck, Wolfhart, etc., but I like to co-mingle it with simple songs, for enjoyment. Then, while maintaining technique, would work on fun songs, whether it be Vivaldi concertoes, or Irish jigs, or a chord progression in E minor, or an opera aria!
LESSON STYLE
Adaptability, imagination, and creativity, define my method! Understanding the students long-term goals and aspirations, and then teaching in harmony with them, including application of conventional concepts, so that, like the instrument itself, the teaching method is fitted to work along with the student, not to constrain them. For violin and viola, I like to start with learning the strings, then each finger placement, similar to on guitar. For teaching vocals, it is important to learn breath and muscle control. In either case, I employ enough theory to comprehend how it all comes together.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
