Violin Lessons and Viola Lessons
Having a strong foundation is the stepping stone in learning how to play violin or viola.
Achieving a good bow sound, playing in tune, proper rhythms, steady tempos and playing from your heart (musicality) are the main focuses in lessons. I encourage my students to be well rounded and learn several styles of playing such as classical, fiddle, improv, rock and pop music.
Lesson books are essential. Here is a list of the main music books I utilize.
My First Violin Fun Book for my youngest students
Strictly Strings 1 & 2
Introducing the Positions
Wohlfahrt Complete Sixty Studies
Polo Double Stops for Violin
Melodious Double Stops for Viola
Solos for Young Violinists
Fun with Solos
Playing with the Orchestra
I believe each student has their own learning style and as most of these books work well for my students, I'm always open to changing to another lesson book if I feel it is better suited for the student.
Playing duets and playing other styles of music is strongly encouraged.
