Violin/Viola Tutor with Bachelor in Music Education in Perth CBD, WA searching for Students

Methodology

My philosophy of education is education through guidance. Through lessons, I adapt the learning to each specific student, and allow them to show me how they learn best. Every student learns differently, and it's important to teach them in the way they are going to be the most receptive. While progress should be the goal, I try to encourage my students when they make mistakes instead of chastise, and firmly believe that lessons are a tool for them to use to grow as a performer. My role is to mold them into a well rounded and versatile performer by supplying them not only with performance knowledge, but also good practicing techniques and music theory knowledge that can be applied in the future.

If you are interested in lessons for you or your child, feel free to email me at (concealed information) I look forward to learning with you!

Background

I hold a Bachelor's of Music degree from Elizabethtown College, USA. I have studied violin privately for 10 years, as well as taught private and public lessons through school programs for 7 years. I began viola in college, and am well versed on the techniques of viola performance. I am able to teach a student starting at any level, from beginner through advanced, and will work with the student at their pace to help them as much as possible. If you or your student already has books or pieces they are working on, I would be happy to work with them on those. If they would like suggestions or to expand their horizons in the musical world, I would also be capable of helping them with that.

While I am a violin/viola primary teacher, I am also qualified to instruct in other instruments up to the intermediate levels. If you or yor student would like to receive music theory lessons, my degree also covered that up to Music Theory 4, as well as arrangement instruction.

I will be teaching 1 hour long minimum lessons at $70 an hour. I reside in Lathlain at the moment, and rely on public transportation. The suburbs accessible to me are:
Lathlain
Carlisle
Victoria Park
Bentley
Queen's Park
Cannington
Beckenham
Belmont
East Perth

If you live outside these suburbs, and would still like me to provide lessons to you or your student, please feel free to contact me and we can see if we can negotiate an appropriate rate.

During this time with the COVID-19 Pandemic, I will also be offerring virtual violin lessons through ZOOM at a discounted rate of $60/hour.
