Being a teacher carries a tremendous amount of responsibility with regards to a student’s self esteem, critical thinking, and development of discipline that will be applicable in every aspect of life later on. One of the toughest challenges in making all these wonderful things come to a realization is keeping it as simple as possible in the teacher-student relationship.
I like to keep things simple. Long time ago, I committed to being honest yet nourishing to all of my students. You can ask each and every one of them and no one will dispute what I just said. I will give your child (or you, if you are the student) constructive feedback that will help develop his or her observational and listening skills, as well as create a practice approach towards the violin that can be applied in other daily activities and areas of long term self improvement such as school, homework, relationships with family and peers, and much more. The whole idea behind learning to play a musical instrument at an early age is to create the focus of attention and dedication necessary to succeed in all future challenging endeavors.
My purpose as a violin teacher is to gradually reveal the multiple intricacies of the violin while creating a positive learning environment in which your child will thrive and achieve a sound sense of personal accomplishment in addition to a clear understanding of the responsibility that he or she accepts at the end of each session in order to be able to bring the desired improvement to a full realization. While the whole process takes years of learning, you as a parent will inevitably notice the advanced maturity level of your children that will result from their daily violin practice.
Finally, please remember: this is not a destination but a journey!
