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.
