    Violin and Viola lessons online; ABRSM/Trinity exams preparation

    With over 20 years of experience as a performer and educator, I specialise in teaching the violin and viola to adults and secondary school students from beginners to advanced. Of course, children are welcome to have lessons with me, too! :)
    My goal is to help each student improve their technical abilities and musical awareness and make the best possible progress.
    My main strength as a teacher is my ability to adapt my teaching methods and strategy to the specific needs and goals of each learner.
    I am experienced in preparing students for ABRSM and Trinity graded exams, as well as for school scholarship and orchestral auditions.

    Viola and Violin Lessons: Technique, Improv, and a Healthy Relationship with your Instrument
    This course is for viola and violin students from the beginner through the high school level, and any age from 5-99! My goal is for my students to foster a healthy and long-term relationship with their instrument. The course focuses on practicing and truly understanding technique, with an emphasis on listening. Weekly assignments tend to include technical exercises, scales, and classical pieces of the student's choice. Basic improvisation is also an interest of mine and, I find, a valuable experience for my string students. I believe repertoire is largely a matter of student taste. Students of mine have learned pieces in the Suzuki books and other classical repertoire volumes, but have also learned pop and fiddle songs according to their interest. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from the University of Puget Sound, where I graduated in 2015 before moving to Vienna to study privately for three years. I am currently on hiatus from a Master of Viola Performance degree at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where I study with Ásdís Valdimarsdottir. I have been teaching violin intermittently since 2009. While my musical education is classical, my performance interests are much wider. I have performed jazz and pop improv, and am currently exploring how hip hop can be implemented on the viola and violin.

    Irene
    Violin teacher giving violin/music theory lessons in Amsterdam
    My violin lessons are shaped in relation to the student's age, goals and interests. I have experience in teaching to children as well as adults and I like the student to have fun while learning such a wonderful thing as playing music. If you are a beginner I'll start with the basic theory, but always in combination with practical approach on the instrument. I'm mostly working with classical music, but I'm also into other genres and I'm very open to help you in any way I can. I can teach in english and in Italian (working on the dutch!) and I can't provide the violin, but I can give some suggestions about where and how to find it. Please contact me if interested!

    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. 😊
