When choosing a violin teacher (or music teacher) for yourself, your son, or your daughter, there are a number of factors that must be taken into consideration. First and foremost is the question of value. What do you consider important in choosing a teacher, in general? How much does music play a role in your life and/or how much of a role would you like music to play in the life of your child?
Let’s address the role of the teacher first. As is the case in any subject, a teacher has the ability to make or break a child’s enthusiasm and sense of interest in a topic. How many of us have memories of teachers who just made a particular subject dreadful! On the flip side, so many of us also have memories of a special favourite teacher who made a subject come alive. Because violin lessons are so intensive in nature, the necessity of student-teacher chemistry is vital. Violin lessons are usually conducted in a one-to-one fashion and last 30-60 minutes on average. In my opinion, the student-teacher relationship should be the final determining factor in choosing the right violin teacher. Many violinists offer trial lessons (even for free!) where both teacher and student can try each other out to see if there is a good fit.
In fact, so much more is taught than just how to play the violin! My students learn how to be really good listeners. They also develop character and self-esteem because they are taught never to give up. Yet, they are also taught to seek “out-of-the-box” solutions to problems that cannot be solved through repeating passages alone. Both of these traits apply beyond the music lesson and translate into life skills.
At the end of the day, music, when taught properly, is all about communication through love. There is no better way to express feelings, whether between parents and their children, the teacher and student, or between the performer and the audience through the wordless wonder of music.
As there are tones of books, studies ,music pieces and several tutoring methods ,so working all these fruitful years with teaching (one to one and group lessons) at homes and schools made me to not to manipulate just one book for all learners while each person has quite unique situation in terms of family ,amount of talent ,free time to practice ,range of age etc; Therefore essentially before commencing the first actual lesson I always book a telephone or face to face conversion to testify your ability in all fields and discuss about your potential possibilities.
The last thing that I'd like you know is as far as you have a ready to play Violin then no matter where you live as I can arrange your weekly online lessons!but if you are in my physical working area (will find out upon discussing) I also can book your lessons at your place.
If you don't have a musical instrument yet ,no worries .I can advice you to buy yours among your current available ones and depends on your wish and budget.
*I put a few videos as samples to give you idea how good a student could play just after a few month from scratch !(online or in person)
