I have played the violin for over 12 years under the tutelage of a professional Suzuki violinist, have taught elementary-aged students how to play the violin in person for two years, and have taught online violin lessons for over two years. Outside of my experience with the violin, I have a passion and desire to share my love of the violin with other students while instilling confidence in them.
I highly encourage students to practice the violin for at least 15 minutes each day. This allows for new skills to be easily remembered and for students to progress quickly.
* All can be purchased online or at a local music store * - Correct size violin (before the first class, please reach out to me if you are unsure as to what size to purchase or rent for your learner) - I highly recommend purchasing a shoulder rest or using a sponge/small towel. This makes it a lot more comfortable and enjoyable for students to play for longer periods of time - Rosin (typically comes with purchasing the violin but double check!) - Tuner (I recommend using YouTube to tune if you would like to forgo purchasing a tuner for now) - Finger tapes (hack: you can use masking tape and cut into thin strips) Purchasing options: Shoulder rest (check correct size for violin): Rosin: Tuner: Finger tapes:
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Younger students may need assistance with rosining their bow, tuning the violin, or setting up before class. We will go over how to rosin your bow in the first lesson as well as briefly go over how to tune the violin. Prior to the third lesson (Week 2, Lesson 1), please bring finger tapes. These will be put on during class and I will help. There may need to be parental help during the beginning of this class for younger learners. 
YouTube. An account is not required and I will share videos of violin playthroughs for students to duet with.
