    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'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 for everyone! Books provided. ABRSM possible
    :) Hello! I've studied at the Royal Conservatory where I followed the “Master in education”. I teach at a studio in the city center but I also do online lessons via ZOOM if you like the idea. I have a small keyboard connected to my laptop and music-making is guaranteed even online! You'll spare some money too as I will provide lesson-by-lesson all the needed books and repertoire. You can play from your screen or even print at home the necessary sheets for the lesson rather than buying unnecessary extras. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education in The Hague. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time since 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also a new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

    Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
    I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7, and have been playing the violin for 15years. I am currently continuing my violin studies at a Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class 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.

    Violin, Viola, Piano and Music Theory lessons in EN, FR, DE, IT, NL
    TIJDELIJK AANBOD: Eerste 2 manden aan absolute minimumprijs. Dit op voorwaarde dat je moedertaal Nederlands is en ik zo mijn Nederlands kan oefenen (niveau B1). Uiteraard blijven lessen in andere talen, aan oorspronkelijke prijs nog steeds beschikbaar. As a graduated music pedagogue, I adapt my lessons to the student's needs and interests. My goal is to give an as complete as possible preparation in the technical and artistic fields while keeping the lesson a positive, creative and constructive experience for all students, from the youngest children who didn't learn to read yet to more mature people looking for new challenges. I teach violin and viola from beginner to advanced level and piano for beginners, integrating my lessons with tidbits of music theory in order to give the students wider knowledge and awareness. Group lessons for two or three students are also an option.

    Hi there, my name is Toby and I’m a professional violin, viola and music theory teacher based in Berlin. I teach in person at students' location and my location as well as online. As well as regular instrumental teaching and ensemble coaching of all age groups and levels, I’ve led numerous professional workshops, including ‘Music First’ and ‘Music Masters’ workshops in London and was an assistant on the Primary Arpeggione viola course and Springgrove music competition. I teach in English, Russian, French and German and am trained in a variety of methods, including Suzuki, regularly preparing students for music exams at all levels. I am currently a member of the European String Teachers’ Association, and have participated in ESTA conferences across Europe. I also regularly accompany students on the piano, and work on music theory, aural and sight reading skills for exams, including on grades in theory and academic exams across all stages. As a performing musician, I've played as a soloist in venues across Europe and participated in several international competitions, notably receiving the Barbirolli prize at the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition 2019. I was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra in 2018, and a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2014-2015, appearing on BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and a televised BBC Prom, as well as being involved in the NYO outreach programme ‘inspire’ in schools across London, including workshops and interactive performances at the Royal Festival Hall. Reviews: Tatyana is a fantastic teacher. He is very reliable as he is consistently organized and punctual. I constantly see progress in my child’s music skills because every lesson Toby delivers is effective and well-structured. I highly recommend him to all who wish to learn or improve on their music skills. Pamela B. Toby is really a great teacher, who teaches pieces well and teases out the feeling while playing. We particularly liked that. Good technique is one thing, but feeling the music is such an important element in music and in learning a piece of music. He also teaches theory very well! Hanna S. Toby can explain things very well and understandably, is patient and friendly and easily adapts to the level of the student More below
