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!

The idea is to have the basic notions to be able to work a string organic. You will study how to write for each string instrument: violin, viola, cello and double bass. Also how to work together, whether for a trio, quartet or thinking about a larger organization like an orchestra.

Mia
Violin lessons for all levels from beginners to advanced, professional ... 🎻 - with Master Didactique diploma.
Mia is a Montenegrin violinist. She has traveled the world, starting with studies at the University of Music in Montenegro, to China, at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. She was a member of the National Symphony Orchestra of Montenegro, but her desire for discovery took her to other spheres. In the meantime, during her studies in Montenegro, she was invited to participate several times in the Young Euro Classic Orchestra, playing at the Berlin Konzerthaus, with renowned musicians like: Liana Issakadze, Heinrich Schiff, Anreas Reiner. In 2014, she met her teacher Anton Martynov who gave her many opportunities to develop as a violinist, in Paris in France and recently in Belgium. In 2023 she obtained another Master Didactique in Royal Conservatory in Mons, Belgium.

Valentine
Violin, Flute and Solfeggio lessons
VIOLIN: My lessons cover several aspects necessary for good violin playing and free musical expression: healthy body posture, stable technique, attentive listening, musicality, personal development. It is from these notions that the quality of sound, intonation, bowing technique, technical skill, expression, and many others arise. I also give importance to well-being, self-confidence, or other abilities that the student would like to acquire. TRANSVERSE FLUTE: My lessons cover several aspects necessary for good playing of the transverse flute and free musical expression: healthy body posture, stable technique, attentive listening, musicality, personal development. It is from these notions that the quality of sound, digital and respiratory technique, intonation, expression, and many others arise. I also give importance to well-being, self-confidence, or other abilities that the student would like to acquire. SOLFÈGE: My courses cover several aspects necessary for the successful learning of music theory: strategies for recognizing intervals, chords and rhythms and their executions, singing, musical indications, exercises, attentive listening, musicality. These aspects are essential to instrumental practice, because they first allow you to correctly read a score, then analyze and interpret it.

I aspire to offer each and every student a personalized approach, according to the person's personal objectives and desires, using the best of my professional knowledge and experience.

Zoltán
Violin and viola lessons at all levels for ages 14 and over
In addition to my work at Bhaktivedanta College Budapest, I currently teach students at all levels over the age of 14 online or in person in the 3rd district of Budapest. I also teach adults who are complete beginners. I deal with classical music, but if my students want to learn works that can be classified in another genre, I am happy to teach them as well. I have only given Sunday times in the timetable because I am sure to be free on that day, but other days are also possible by individual arrangement.

Ester
Private violin lessons, Music Theory, Technical and Musical Skills
My goal is to make people of all ages and levels learn not only playing an instrument but how can music help them in their everyday life. 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. I can teach in English or French and of course in my mother tongue Albanian.

Sebastian
Violine Unterricht - Violinist und Kammermusiker mit internationaler Konzerterfahrung sowie pädagogischer Erfahrung seit 6 Jahren.
Meine Unterrichtsmethoden sind auf jeden Schüler individuell abgestimmt. Ich lege großen Wert auf eine korrekte Technik und die Entwicklung musikalischer Fähigkeiten. Gehörbildung und das Spielen auswendig werden durch Musikspiele gefördert, während eine solide Grundlage im Geigenspiel im Vordergrund steht. Eine gute Atmosphäre und Disziplin gehen dabei Hand in Hand. Der Unterricht kann auf Deutsch, Englisch und Ungarisch stattfinden.

Alethea
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 classes 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.

Gian Marco
Violin/Viola/Music Theory Tutor with international experience
I am a professional musician and educator, with international experience as a Violin/Viola/ Chamber Music/Theory teacher, soloist, orchestra leader, chamber musician, and jury member. I have graduated in Violin at the Conservatory of Music "G.P. da Palestrina" of Cagliari- Italy and in Viola at the Conservatory of Music "G. Verdi" of Milan-Italy. My professional activity led me to work in several orchestras as performer, and in various music schools as upper- string and chamber music teacher. I lived and worked in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and since 2012 I made London my home, where I developed further teaching experience within the British system. I have also founded "The Geminiani Project" (www.geminianiproject.com) of which I am the director and the leader of the Camerata Geminiani, ensemble that has been invited to perform in England, Italy, Germany, France, Portugal, Denmark, and Sweden. At the same time I have established my ensemble, I have also launched the Geminiani Youth Orchestra (formed by young musicians aged 6 to 17 years old) as I believe in the importance of giving an opportunity to young players to perform together, and the amateur ensemble Hampton Chamber Orchestra; we performed with both orchestras at various venues in London. Regarding my teaching technique, I believe that each student is different and unique, so the first thing I try to do is to establish a connection, then I try to understand the major skills and major difficulties of the student in order to develop a personalised system; I pay much importance also to the emotional aspect the student is dealing with in order to build passion and love for music. I strongly believe that, once achieved a technical skill, the student must have the chance to play with the teacher and with other students, and feel the excitement of making music together. I have experience in preparing students for auditions, competitions, or ABRSM/Trinity exams with excellent results; I love what I do and I love to see my pupils achieving high level results. Some of my students have been awarded at international competitions, some other former students are covering leading roles in international orchestras or in chamber ensembles.

Julia
Violin lessons. Learn violin from active professional violinist and certified experienced teacher.
I have bachelor's and master's diploma from Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music, (Kyiv, Ukraine). I am a certified Suzuki teacher. I have experience working in government and private schools in UK. I am actively performing solo, chamber music and work in professional orchestras as a freelancer. I am flexible and combine different methods and repertoire in my own teaching practice according to each student. My teaching philosophy is to make the pupil feel confident, safe, important and valuable, truly enjoy music learning and performing process. Create fun, engaging lessons that inspire and make the pupil feel "addicted" to practice. It's crucial to be observing and mindful teacher, to assess the student needs individually to be creative, to have different approaches ready to develop the pupils skills evenly, to recognise, bring out and flourish pupils strong sides as well as working on diminishing weak ones, to help with required repertoire appropriately. Time is precious, so i make sure that my pupils understand what to practice and how to practice correctly and effectively. Not allowing the mistakes to get inbedded into bad habits. I aim to give most officiant, comfortable, solid technic, work on finding and maintaining a beautiful tone, to inspire my pupils for playing with their hearts always switched on to music. Encourage and allow safe environment for the pupil to experiment, to learn the limits of their instrument, to help develop musical taste. The main goal is to make pupil think, to assess themselves objectively, to be inquiring, to teach how to learn on their own to become an independent musician.
