Violin Lessons

Sarah offers private violin lessons to students of all ages. 

Teaching Philosophy:

The role of the teacher and some essential principles that govern my teaching:

-Enable and encourage the student to use critical thinking and listening skills to teach themselves in the practice room.

-Inspire students and show them they can do even more than they thought they could.

-Gracefully celebrate the students personal best.

-Encourage the student to explore various musical, cultural and artistic genres.

-Provide exposure to the arts for the student.

-Demonstrate the importance of continually desiring to learn.

-Impart clear and accurate information and guidance in regards to all parts of violin playing.

-Acknowledge the students musical comfort zone and go carefully beyond it.

-Respond to questions and frustrations with patience, understanding and awareness.

-Be willing to explore with the student to find solutions to problems.

-Invite and encourage the student to think for them self and give them careful guidance along the way.

-Always be lovingly, completely honest.

-Stress the importance of being well rounded as a musician and individual.

-Encourage the student to perform as often as possible.

-Emphasize the importance of careful, precise, patient practice.

-Celebrate the joy and fun of music making!

 

Lessons:

There are three types of weekly lessons available: half-hour, one hour, or 90 minute lessons. It is recommended that beginners take an introductory full hour lesson for a one-time fee of $20. This will let the student and/or parents gauge their interest and allow the student and teacher to get to know each other!
