I tailor my teaching to the student, so in a first lesson I like to get to know you a little bit, hear about your ideas, your goals and what your relationship to the instrument is. And then we work from there. As a freelancing concert violinist, my availabilities are subject to change. Please contact me for more information. In-person teaching is essential for beginners, but I also offer online-teaching to more advanced students. I offer lessons in English, French, German and Spanish.

Violin lessons. Learn violin from active professional violinist and certified experienced teacher.
I have bachelor's and master's diploma from Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music, (Kyiv, Ukraine). I am a certified Suzuki teacher. I have experience working in government and private schools in UK. I am actively performing solo, chamber music and work in professional orchestras as a freelancer. I am flexible and combine different methods and repertoire in my own teaching practice according to each student. My teaching philosophy is to make the pupil feel confident, safe, important and valuable, truly enjoy music learning and performing process. Create fun, engaging lessons that inspire and make the pupil feel "addicted" to practice. It's crucial to be observing and mindful teacher, to assess the student needs individually to be creative, to have different approaches ready to develop the pupils skills evenly, to recognise, bring out and flourish pupils strong sides as well as working on diminishing weak ones, to help with required repertoire appropriately. Time is precious, so i make sure that my pupils understand what to practice and how to practice correctly and effectively. Not allowing the mistakes to get inbedded into bad habits. I aim to give most officiant, comfortable, solid technic, work on finding and maintaining a beautiful tone, to inspire my pupils for playing with their hearts always switched on to music. Encourage and allow safe environment for the pupil to experiment, to learn the limits of their instrument, to help develop musical taste. The main goal is to make pupil think, to assess themselves objectively, to be inquiring, to teach how to learn on their own to become an independent musician.

Professional violinist is giving lessons of violin online! Learn to play violin and enjoy every lesson! 😊
In this violin course you will learn a foundation in learning one of the most rewarding instruments in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Grip the bow, hold the violin, have the perfect hand position and enjoy playing the strings while learning how to read the notes, the violin rhythm and technique. Students will generally learn better if they feel a connection developing with their teacher, whether that’s through humour, showing care about their development, or making sure teacher devote time equally to all students when in a group. You will not regret. 😊

Alethea
Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training, I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory classes for 6 years because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Farshid
Violin practical skills and Music theory learning.
I am a young professional violinist with more than 14 years of playing experience and I have recently decided to pass on this beautiful skill to young students and inspire them to connect to the world of Music. 1. To begin with my students will learn the fundamentals of violin which is the most important elementary part of learning (this involves learning basics such as posture, positions music theory and basic techniques). 2. After building an understanding and muscle memory we will proceed with bowing & left hand techniques. 3. The next step would be using the previous 2 steps to slowly learn basic popular songs from books that I will suggest. I believe it is very important that music is introduced as a fun activity so that students are excited to learn and regardless of your age you should not worry about that, I’m a pretty fun violin teacher ;)
