Violin Classes – The Student Experience

If you’re searching for high-quality violin classes Philadelphia, then look no further. As your teacher, students can expect to receive their lesson in a warm, positive and nurturing environment. Each student will receive a tailored curriculum based on their individual needs, learning styles and level. Generally, beginning students will learn basics about their instrument including maintenance, good posture, note-reading, sound quality, rhythm and intonation. With emphasis on a strong technical foundation, my approach results in a relaxed and natural posture for playing, and beautiful sound production right from the start. Beginning students will only need to know a few notes on the violin before they begin to make music, using my repertoire of expertly curated, fun and familiar pieces. More advanced students will learn musicality, high-level technique, and standard repertoire each and every class. With my emphasis on strong technique, advanced students will develop a quick and accurate left hand, a controlled bow arm, and an understanding of how to use the bow to achieve musicality in a clear phrase. Standard etudes, concertos, sonatas and short pieces will be taught in each lesson. All levels of students can expect to receive curated, informative emails that pertain to music, the violin, learning, practicing, or anything else that I feel would be useful to my students. I also lead group outings to different classical music events in Philadelphia, and encourage my students to attend my own personal performances so the students can learn by seeing the professionals in action.

Lessons for Adults, Teens, and Children – How to Succeed

I expect my students to be dedicated to the learning experience. This involves being on time for lessons, being prepared with the required materials, having thoroughly practiced the assignments, and being focused and respectful for the duration of the lesson. Violin lessons are a partnership between the student and teacher: In the lessons you will receive tools and guidance, and then you are expected to learn at home in the practice room. Individual practicing will be assigned based on age and ability, but in general it ranges from 3 days/week, 30 minutes/day to 6 days/week, 3 hours/day. Greater effort from the student will result in greater and more satisfying results on the instrument. Students who show little to no progress may be placed on a period of probation during which they are expected to improve their achievement or risk dismissal from my studio and the forfeit of your spot to a wait-listed student. Finding violin teachers in Philadelphia PA with my level of expertise is a hard task to come by, but you can rest assured that you’re learning from an experienced professional with a dedicated passion for this classic instrument.
