Students will improve their prior knowledge about Violin and Music, or learn the basics from the beginning. Also, if they want to play a specific song, we are going to evaluate the possibilities and find a suitable arrangement for each one. If you want to prepare an audition, concert or competition, I know about how to manage your time of practice to achieve your goals. To summarize some points that we are going to work: - Left and Right-hand position - Bow technique - Intonation - Pulse - Music Theory - How to practice
I was born in Chile and started playing the piano at the age of 10. After that, I begin my Violin studies at the age of 15 years old. In my experience as a musician, I can say that I have a rich and varied career in professional symphony orchestras, chamber music, and one of the activities that inspire me the most, teaching. All this allows me to perform my violin and piano in professional orchestras and chamber music ensembles in North, South America, and Europe. I have more than 10 years of experience teaching in different Schools, Music Academies, and Youth Orchestras added to my Private Students. In all this time, I have learned how to help students reach their highest levels as performers and continue with the musical journey as a great hobby or even professionally. To define my principal goals as a teacher, I can say that I want to create an educational environment that allows me to guide young learners to begin their journeys in this amazing world that is the music. I love teaching, and I want to express this through my teaching philosophy. Every student is a completely different person, and for this reason, has a unique way of learning. Currently, I am using different methods and books that are suitable for the plans of each student, and we can do the necessary variations in every scenario. To achieve those objectives, I have to prepare myself in the best way. I did my Bachelor’s degree and Performers certificate, multiple extra Pedagogy Courses as a Kodaly certificate focused in early music education, and now my Masters of Music in performance. I strongly believe that everyone can learn to play a musical instrument, we just have to find their specific plan, setting our objectives and also having a good time¡
About homework, I will attach a summary report after each lesson with the contents studied and the assignment for the next time. I will be available for any questions about the lessons or how to practice between our classes.
-Violin ( I can help you to find a violin suitable in order to age and height ) -Bow -Shoulder Rest ( or a violin pad for kids, I can help you to find the right one ) -Rosin -Pencil Colors -Books and Violin Methods (I will send you the sheet music and books concerning the levels) -Notebook
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will do a little audition after completing 2-3 songs of our books. If the student and parents want, this audition could be open for their families.
