    Suzuki and traditional violin lessons offered in Montreal

    Daphne is a teacher of both Suzuki and traditional violin, and has been teaching for the past sixteen years. She has taught privately in Greece and the UK, at various music conservatories in Athens, the Junior Department of the Royal Academy of Music in London, St Catherine’s British School in Athens and most recently at South Shore Conservatory in Boston, MA. She currently teaches at École FACE in Montreal, maintains a private teaching studio in NDG and also offers lessons via Skype or FaceTime.

    Daphne also enjoys coaching ensembles, and has worked with the South Shore Conservatory Youth Orchestra (SSCYO). In 2012 she coached and directed the inaugural concert of the Athens Youth Symphony Orchestra’s Baroque Consortium (ASON) at the Goethe Institute in Athens.

    Learning a musical instrument can be an equally exciting and daunting journey. Having gone through ups and downs herself throughout her own musical career, she values the need to have a constant love of music and a nurturing, supportive teacher. Daphne’s aim is to create a solid technical foundation in all her students, regardless of their age, and create a challenging yet supportive environment. Being a Suzuki kid herself, she loves having come full circle, and sharing the principles of the Method with both Suzuki and traditional students.

    About Me

    I have been teaching for the past 16 years, in 4 different countries, both privately and in schools, all ages, and levels.
    I greatly enjoy setting up beginners students but also teaching students who have come to me from another teacher. Many times, those students have been disenchanted, and I love the challenge of rekindling their love for the instrument.
    More than one student has described me as the perfect combination of strict and fun, so I guess it's true!

    Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
    I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

I am an Albanian violinist, with a Bachelor degree in Classical Music (Violin) and Musicologie in Sorbonne University. Over the years, my experiences with different youth and professional orchestras all around Europe have made me understand that music is important not only for professional musicians but also for everyone.

    Izabel
    Lessons for Violin/Viola for Beginners to Advanced (for Children and Adults) in Zurich
    Hello, my name is Izabel and I play the viola professionally and work in Zurich Opernhaus as well as other orchestras. I also have more than 10 years of experience teaching the violin, the viola and music theory. I can speak fluent English, Bulgarian and French. I can also understand German, but cannot fluently communicate. I would be happy to work with you or your child at your home, or in my studio, as well as give an online course. My weeks are often quite flexible and I am happy to accommodate to your schedule whenever it is possible. It is an important step in one's development to seek the right guidance and to have a teacher who helps them develop and grow. I was lucky to have been taught by incredible teachers, but I also needed to create a specialised way of practicing for myself, which I soon realised could help many others get through the difficulties of learning the stringed instrument. If you are interested in my course, please reach out and be sure that you will not regret it. All the best, Izabel

    Mirjana
    Master of Violin Teaching with 25 years of teaching experience - violin lessons for all levels, for children and adults
    Hello! My name is Mirjana. I am from Serbia. I am a graduate violinist and master of violing teaching. I have been working as a violin teacher for 25 years in two schools - primary music school and a music high school. I have also been an ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) violin teacher for 15 years. I have a lot of experience with online teaching. I would like to introduce my program. I base my teaching on the principles of the famous Russian school and the knowledge of modern violin teaching methodology. My approach to violin teaching is systematic and detailed. I can help you learn violin from the beginning to advanced level with a lot of patience. If you are a beginner (children or adults) I can teach you the proper violin posture, how to hold the violin and the bow and the placing of the left hand. Already at this stage of teaching I include short pieces of music and song. If you are at an intermediate or advanced level, I can help you with musical expressions or any technical problem. Get prepared for your exams, competitions, concerts or just learn your favourite piece of music or song. You can learn or practice with me. If you want, after our class, I can make a short video that you would use during the independent exercise. In the video I would show what we did in the lesson and what you should pay attention to during practice. This method has proven to be very useful for beginners and younger children.

I have been teaching for many years in various schools, notably the Ecole Artistique Jacot as well as the Notre-Dame du Lac Institute in Geneva.

Lessons are for all ages, all levels, individual or in small groups. Feel free to ask questions 😊

    violin(music) I want to teach the classical hindustani music and tell about the theory of indian music ragas and all
    The violin, sometimes known as a fiddle, is a wooden chordophone (string instrument) in the violin family. Most violins have a hollow wooden body. It is the smallest and thus highest-pitched instrument (soprano) in the family in regular use.[a] The violin typically has four strings (some can have five), usually tuned in perfect fifths with notes G3, D4, A4, E5, and is most commonly played by drawing a bow across its strings. It can also be played by plucking the strings with the fingers (pizzicato) and, in specialized cases, by striking the strings with the wooden side of the bow (col legno). Violins are important instruments in a wide variety of musical genres. They are most prominent in the Western classical tradition, both in ensembles (from chamber music to orchestras) and as solo instruments. Violins are also important in many varieties of folk music, including country music, bluegrass music, and in jazz. Electric violins with solid bodies and piezoelectric pickups are used in some forms of rock music and jazz fusion, with the pickups plugged into instrument amplifiers and speakers to produce sound. The violin has come to be incorporated in many non-Western music cultures, including Indian music and Iranian music. The name fiddle is often used regardless of the type of music played on it.
