Violin and Viola Lessons - Learn a new instrument or improve your skills

I'm an experienced teacher, with students of different levels/ages.
I enjoy the diversity of students and understanding of their different ways of learning and goals and for me, this is the best part of the job - to know an treat each student as a unique person that they are.
You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with the teacher.

The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes.

GUITAR COURSE - AT HOME OR AT THE PROFESSOR - LAUSANNE
Classical or classical guitar lessons for beginners and more. I am a student and I practice guitar for 12 years at the conservatory and I have been teaching for 4 years. I travel near the EPFL and within a radius of 3 km around Lausanne. The course can be given in Lausanne in my music room. (1004 Lausanne) Want to start the guitar? Want to try out classical works or to play the latest pop songs on the radio? No problem I am here to help you achieve your goal! Even if you have never touched a guitar of your life I can teach you from basic notes through scales and chords to play your favorite arpeggios. If necessary I enrich my teaching with solfège and guitar culture. It will be necessary to learn to know your instrument and especially to know how to read the scores to exercise when I would not be there;) If the course is for your child I know how to be a pedagogue and a patient, and children often have a good listening experience when learning a musical instrument. I can help them develop their musical ear while showing them the basics of this art. For schedules I can be flexible but preferably during the week. Here I hope soon to scratch some agreements with you :)
