Our approach to violin instruction consists of a mixture of two methods: traditional and Suzuki. The Suzuki method is based on playing by ear and imitating what the teacher presents during the lesson (some call it rote teaching). Our violin instructor uses the Suzuki method with students, ages 3.5 thorough 7. This creates a relaxed and playful atmosphere, so that the student and the parents who are invited to participate during the lesson feel comfortable and enjoy their lesson. The traditional method focuses on developing strong reading skills, and works best with students ages 7 and older.
From the beginning of the learning process, our violin instructor puts a strong focus on posture, the right form, and the correct way to get the right sound. Some of the best students who have studied with our violin instructor now play professionally in orchestras around the world.
