Violin Lessons: online and in person with word-class violinist

Are you serious about learning to play violin?
Do you want to learn how to tackle difficult violin pieces?
Do you want to learn how to practise efficiently?
Do you want to know how to tackle stage nerves and how to plan your time before a performance?
Do you need help with fingerings and bowings for a specific piece?

Online violin lessons are becoming more and more popular as they offer real convenience for a student who either wants to learn with a specific teacher who might be based in another country, or when attending lessons in person is problematic because of the student's schedule.

Dunja , who has 15 years of overall teaching experience, has successfully taught via Skype and Zoom for the past 7 years. Lessons are scheduled based on the most suitable time (whatever the time zone!) for both Dunja and the student.

Dunja's message to future students:

"I have always been greatly fascinated by violin and methods of teaching how to play it, and believe that each student should have their lesson tailor-made for them in order to fulfil their full potential.
I always listen to what my students want first from their lessons and then work out the best and most efficient way to get there.
When I help my students achieve their best results, I combine several teaching techniques/schools of violin playing.
I have an individual approach towards each of my students, depending on their abilities and goals.
I help my students by showing them how to achieve maximum results through appropriate way of practising and time-management, coaching them various performing techniques, helping with audition behavior and stage presence, helping to deal with anxiety, stage fright and much more.
I teach my students independence, organisation and responsibility.

During my lessons you will learn that:

- “It's always "quality over quantity.”
- “I am here to help you reach your goal.”
- “Ultimately, it’s up to you to take responsibility and make progress, using the information I have given you.”
- “Anything I will suggest to you during lessons is what I believe are STEPS towards YOUR goal.”
- “You will need to practise, but for yourself and not for me and not anyone else. You will need to remember the goal you have set for YOURSELVES.”
- “Fear is natural, everyone is afraid of something - it’s what you make of it that matters.”
- “Failure is part of a journey, don’t let it stop you on your tracks. Failure teaches us how to move forwards.”
- “I am here for you."

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.

I am an Albanian violinist, with a Bachelor degree in Classical Music (Violin) and Musicologie in Sorbonne University. Over the years, my experiences with different youth and professional orchestras all around Europe have made me understand that music is important not only for professional musicians but also for everyone. I can teach in English or French and of course in my mother tongue Albanian.

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. 😊

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.

I studied violin degree at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Vigo in Spain and viola in Spain and at the Utrechts Conservatorium. The research of my final exam was about well-being and phisical education to improve and accelerate the learning process. I want my students to be aware of the importance of good posture and technique in order to enjoy the learning process without problems.

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 ;)
