Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Teaching Methods: For beginners, I assess their knowledge of theory and the violin and go from there. I give some students flashcards to learn note names and note values, while others come in knowing all the beginning steps. We work on posture and the bow hand and then dive into beginner pieces. I use the Suzuki Method Books.
Teaching Styles: I pride myself in not pushing the student too hard. From experience I know how it feels to be worn out from the violin and start to dislike playing and practicing. It is important to let the student develop a love for their instrument. While a little motivational push is necessary at times, I try to keep the student practicing with things they like to do. Whether that is learning a song they like or doing excercises they like into the practice routine, it is always best to make sure the student is learning and loving.
For beginning students who are children, I typically start with Suzuki. Once the student has progressed to have a gasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lesson engaging and fun.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
My teaching experience dates back to when I was in high school. My orchestra teacher at the time was a double bass player; therefore, I helped him teach some violin and viola students because I was more comfortable with the teaching methods. Since then, I have had many students throughout my undergraduate and graduate coursework. During my time at Northwestern, I was required to take a string pedagogy course, in which I was assigned a student (or students) to teach each quarter. I would have to observe their lessons with their main teacher, give them a private lesson, attend group classes, and take part in our weekly seminar classes with my colleagues. I have found that if a student isn't enjoying, learning, and having fun in their lessons, then I'm not doing my job! My students are encouraged to play and perform as much as they want, so they feel good about their accomplishments.

The most important aspect to violin and viola pedagogy is to teach both the subject and the STUDENT. Most teachers only teach the subject. It is important to cater each lesson to the student's needs, skill, level, goals, physiology, and personality.

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
