    Violin, chamber music and group lessons for children with experienced professor and active violinist.

    As scientists admit, music improves language skills, logical thinking, concentration, and has therapeutical effect on us. For me, playing the violin has proved to be that and much more. It has been connecting all the elements of my life - work, dreams of travelling around the world, my social life, my family. They say it is one of the most difficult instruments, but the truth is, it is difficult only if you make it difficult. My aim is to make my students fascinated by it any time they take it in their hands. In my work I concentrate on the needs and interests of the student and work on technique, music knowledge and joy in playing through games, special excercises and my own 27 years of experience in playing the violin.

    I can help you find the right size and type of instrument to play, or rent one of mine if available.

    About Me

    I have been playing the violin since I was 5 and it has been, until now, my biggest quest, joy, my work and my life. On daily basis I am a member of Concept Store Quartet, Basel Sinfonietta and Zurich Symphonic Orchestra. I also do many individual interdisciplinary projects (music, dancing, painting, new media and other).

    I have always loved teaching and have been doing that for many years. My first experience was in a private music school in Warsaw, later, during my studies in Bern, I taught private students and soon after I received a teaching position and a violin class in the Academy of Arts in Szczecin. I have also been doing many education projects accross the world.

    It is a different challenge to work with children and with adults as well as with beginners and advanced musicians. My experience has helped me create my own method which is based on individual needs of my students. They work on techinque through games and multiple excercises, but also through understanding musical gestures and the meaning of what and why they are doing. I help them find the most comfortable and physiological way of playing, which prevents from later pains and muscles tensions and makes playing easy. But most importantly, I try to make the student fascinated with the world of music and use their creativity and imagination to find their own language and joy in playing.

    Bratschen und Geigenunterricht. Violin and Viola Lessons. Classes de violín y viola.
    I offer Viola and Violin classes to students of all levels and ages. It does not matter if your purpose is to discover these magnificent instruments from the biginning or to improve your current level. I allways belived that starting or deepening the practice of a string instrument is a learning process that, beyond allowing the student to improve and develop their skills as an instrumentalist, serves to increase the student's multiple capabilities. The association capacity that the practice of a musical instrument entails and the discovery of the richness of classical music brings immense benefits for the student. My lessons are adressed both to starting students and advanced ones.

    Graduated with a Bachelor of the Musikhochschule Basel in 2019, Master student offers violin lessons for all ages and all levels, in private lessons or in support for students seeking help with instrumental practice.

    Coline
    Violin lessons for all levels - Solfège lessons - Chamber music lessons - Deutsch, Français, English
    Professional violinist in Basel - Master Diploms from the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis - Violin lessons - Solfège teacher - Chamber music lessons - Deutsch, English, Français I like to start from the point of the student, observe his / her abailities and focus a lot on how the body itself can help to develop a good connection with the instrument, in order to create a fluid interraction between the person and the music. For this I try to use my knwoledges of the Alexander Technique. It is important that the position of the instrument is compatible with the body of the student. Furthermore, I like to approach a diverse repertoire from the early baroque period and make the student discover the history of the music in its context. Learning by heart, memorize melodies is also a part of my pedagogy. After my studies of modern violin in France, I studied in Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and got two Masters in baroque and romantic violin. I also have a degree as Solfège teacher. I am taking Alexander Technique lessons and use it in my own practice and pedagogy.
