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."

In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination.

Respighi Award Winner 2015 (NY, USA) Irene debuted in 2016 as a soloist at Carnegie Hall in New York with the Chamber Orchestra of New York, conducted by Salvatore Di Vittorio, with the first New York performance of Dirk's Violin Concerto Brushed "Black, White and in Between".

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. 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 in the 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.
