Class Experience

Students will improve their facility with their violin or viola.  Posture, intonation, and tone will be improved through assisting musicians to make better use of their bodies while playing.  Note reading, rhythm, and other theoretical elements will be improved through discussions of their musical pieces.  And musicality will be improved by tapping into learners' emotions and personal experiences.
I took 11 years of private lessons, 4 years of string pedagogy classes (learning how to teach stringed instruments), and 3 years of student teaching under the direction of my private lesson teachers.  I opened my own teaching studio in 2008, and have enjoyed helping hundreds of students with their musical goals.
Learners will be encouraged to practice regularly, to help them improve their playing.  Amount of practice will depend on learner's age, skill level, and goals.
Shoulder Rest
Bow Hold Buddy
Music stand
Sheet music - I will discuss exactly what each student needs with them individually
Theory book from Master Theory series (dependent on student needs)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I do not generally provide a formal assessment, but if requested, I can provide a letter grade.  As a musician progresses, they are better able to assess their own playing.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
No sensitive content.
