Learn how to play or to advance in violin with a professional

Tailoring my teaching approaches to each individual, I am confident in helping each student reach their desired goals with the violin. Whether a student is a complete beginner, or picking up the violin after many years of not playing, or a serious musician, I offer fun, encouraging, and enlightening lessons.

I also teach all styles of music genres - from Baroque/Classical/Romantic, to Folk, to Jazz, to Contemporary, and very happy to teach a broad spectrum of styles, or to focus on just one. I also have a specialism in teaching adults.

Extra information

Must have their own violin, and be prepared to buy suggested sheet music prior to lessons

Currently I am studying for a Master's Degree in Bass Clarinet, so we can combine both instruments in my lessons. I teach students of all ages and levels. In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination. The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes. On top of playing, I can also offer lessons on harmony, form analysis and counterpoint that focus on understanding the structure of music. My lessons will already include many different aspects of the music being taught but there is the option of focusing the theoretical or the practical. i am looking forward to teaching you music!

Dorelle

My name is Dorelle and I play cello and piano since I was little.

The important thing for me in learning the cello is to have fun while making sure to find a good position that will not generate tensions later. I give an hour of class in general, but can adapt to the desires of the student without worry, whether in terms of course times or to find cool songs that change the repertoire "classic"! I can also help more advanced students who need support to pass an exam or progress more quickly.
