I am very passionate about meeting new students and sharing my experience with them. Being and performing in various countries have taught me that music is a universal language and there is no borders in it. Everyone can feel joy and happiness playing and listening to music. I studied with various professors here in the US as well as in Moscow and this experience gave me a good insight of how to teach and approach every student individually. I believe that proper posture and technique is a must. Thats why I always pay attention on comfort in playing violin. There is no need to suffer and think that violin is difficult instrument when you can make proper adjustments and enjoy playing.
I graduated from Jacobs school of music at IU in 2018 as a Performer diploma student in violin performance studying with Austin Hartman, a member of the Pacifica Quartet. I came to Bloomington a year ago and previously received my Master in music at Nebraska University at Glenn Korff school of music. Apart from this, I am a holder of Bachelor degree in violin performance and teaching, as well as orchestra and chamber player from Ippolitov-Ivanov Institute of Music in Moscow, Russia. I have extensive orchestral experience including The Bolshoi Theater, Moscow central Philharmonic Orchestra, Russian Philharmonic, and San Luis Potosi symphony orchestra. I lived and taught in Mexico for 4 years while playing as assistant principal second violin at San Luis Potosi symphony orchestra in Mexico. Currently I play with many symphony orchestras in Indiana, Nebraska and Texas on a permanent basis. I teach privately and enjoy having students with different levels from all over the world.
Depending on a student, I use different approach in repertoire and technique.I try to see what student needs and what he or she is interested in , then I adjust my teaching technique. If someone is having challenges with left or right hand , holding the bow or any other technique, I do my best to help student and don't move forward till problem is resolved. Although playing violin may not seem always like fun because of various challenges this instrument brings to us, I try to make lessons as more engaging as I can.
It is always a pleasure to see my students develop their skills and deeper interest in music. I believe that everyone can perform starting with simple solo pieces of 2-5 minutes long. This experience is rewarding for self development and artistic growth. I remember always playing for my classmates in high school and enjoying it a lot. Making new friends and sharing music is part of being musician and playing musical instrument. I enjoy creativity and imagination in playing music, since every melody has its personality and character, it is like an improvisational storytelling with different narratives.
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
