Brenna B offers Violin lessons in   Minneapolis, MN

Brenna B

Instruments: Violin

For beginners, particularly children, I use the Suzuki method due to the emphasis on learning the instrument before learning how to read notes. I do this in part because, regardless of method, listening to experts play pieces that you are working on is a big part of string playing, and the Suzuki method has become standardized enough that the beginner and intermediate pieces have readily available recordings. Once a baseline of the instrument is established, I add outside repertoire and workbooks. Read More

Kimberly H offers Violin lessons in   Minneapolis, MN

Kimberly H

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Violin Cello

I try to strike a balance between music lessons being serious and being fun. I expect my students to practice almost every day and I expect that the parents will be part of keeping them accountable for scheduling that practicing. Lessons are a combination of learning technical skills and learning songs, which usually are mostly classical songs with a few contemporary songs thrown in for motivation. Read More

Dawne E offers Violin lessons in   Minneapolis, MN

Dawne E

Instruments: Piano Violin Viola Fiddle Keyboard

My style of teaching is different for each student. After meeting the student, I suggest setting a goal, working towards that goal for 4 -6 weeks - after which an assessment is made by me to determine how best to continue. For the younger student I often demonstrate, or play with them. Encouraging recital participation, finding the right performance piece helps me determine what inspires the student, young or old. Negativity in lessons is not acceptable and never happens with me as your teacher. Read More

Byron D offers Violin lessons in   Minneapolis, MN

Byron D

Instruments: Violin Cello Viola

THE DOUNIS METHOD - The secret of being a truly great string player is to make the instrument an extension of the body not vice versa. This is accomplished by using your native instincts which are strongest when you are a child, but can be rediscovered later. When all technique is based on these instinctive movements then the expression is released. Your creative potential is unlocked. This kind of playing conveys a natural musical authority because it is completely based on your own musical impulses. Read More

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Violin Cello Viola Trumpet Trombone Saxophone Flute Clarinet Drums Bass Guitar Organ Synthesizer Accordion Banjo Ukulele Mandolin Recorder Electric Violin Fiddle Double Bass French Horn Tuba Piccolo Mallet Percussion Orchestral Percussion Oboe Bassoon English Horn Conga Music Keyboard Electric Guitar Classical Guitar Acoustic Guitar

My teaching style is based on each student's needs. Some students like to learn at a fast pace and others like to go slower. I listen carefully and ask questions, basing instruction on what creates success. My approach is to make learning fun. I bring markers and stickers and other visual aids to create a unique learning process. I like to use games and sayings to help remember things, many of which I've developed over the years.

...Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas starting topping the late Baroque charts. Alessandro Scarlatti (the father of Domenico) took it upon himself to introduce something new.   He came up with a three section overture in the 1680s, as opposed to Lully’s two. Scarlatti also employed a fast-slow-fast form (perhaps he thought audiences were harder to engage when the slow movement came first). To hear a bit of late 17th century Scarlatti opera that showcases his new overture style, listen to La Rosaura. He wrote it in 1690.   Scarlatti’s Italian Overture style took Europe by storm during his lifetime, and not ... Read More

Soloing Over Blues Changes

...Harmonically, this doesn’t really fit, but the cycle of fourths progression will be strong enough that it will sound correct. A good rhythm section will hear what you’re doing and play the chords. Likewise, you should hear when a rhythm section hits that bII chord on beat one and know what they’re doing. If they don’t hear what you’re doing, it’s okay. It still sounds good. For the cadence in this example, I used “Coltrane changes”. This is another example of something that isn’t quite correct harmonically, but sounds good because of its strong internal harmonic motion.   In addition to altering the harmony ... Read More

...note group acts as a passing tone. You still get the sound of the whole tone scale, but it creates a more interesting line. Application to Improvisation As with the diminished scale, the whole tone scale can be applied to any dominant chord. The key is using your ear. The rhythm section can choose to alter any dominant chord to have a sharp five. As a soloist, you can imply the whole tone sound and the rhythm section should hear it and respond. A good way to practice applying this scale to improvising is to practice it over a blues piece. ... Read More

Although practicing without an amplifier is possible (and done quite often), it is not advisable at the early stages because you can develop some bad habits.   Whatever decision you make when choosing your first guitar, here are a few pointers that will make your playing more fun. First of all, your instrument should have a straight neck, easy action, and tone controls that provide you with the sound you want. Let’s take a closer look at these:   A straight neck: This is vital to the usability of the guitar. A slight bend is common but a curved neck ... Read More
