I approach my teaching with a method of each child is different. Music theory is covered in class but I do not make children learn to read music straight away- learning to play the violin is hard enough. I teach a large range of music based on what i believe will benefit the students and their own preference.
I believe that it is important for students to have a well-rounded music education that encompasses aural, theory and practical skills. I also aim to make music a fun and enjoyable experience that brings people together and cultivates a positive musical community.
Pay attention to the musicianship and technique. Easily communicate and get along. Student-centered, responsible and patient. Be specific about problem solving in class and know about AMEB exam.
My aproach to teaching strings is to help by playing along and giving harder pieces throughout time. I am nice but strict. Kids do not like having heaps of stress layering on top and giving small bits time to time does get their learning to improve much faster than just forcing all the knowledge into them.
I try to keep the balance of having fun but also focus on specific topics to build strong foundation for later playing the violin.
Since retiring from my position as a university lecturer I am now offering private lessons to violin students at all levels in classical and folk styles, including the AMEB exam syllabus. Learning and refining skills and knowledge is most satisfying and rapid when we are fully engaged in the learning process.
You must have your own instrument for this class. (I am currently taking a gap year and decided not to bring my violin to protect it from being broken or stolen.) I am happy to teach you the basics of playing the violin. You will learn how to correctly hold a bow, read notes and play simple songs.
