My name is Aleksandar and I am 25 years old from Bulgaria. I have been playing the violin since I was 5 years old, and currently doing it for more than 20 years already.

I finished the music school with honors when I was 18 years old and received my professional diploma. At the age of 12 I was accepted in the class of the head teacher in the National Music Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria. I have finished already there my master's degree in violin with additional chamber music and pedagogy in the top of my class.
I have given solo recitals, concerts as soloist of orchestras and chamber musician all around the world. I have more than 10 prizes from International competitions.

Célia
Violin lessons for all Fr / Ang (solfeggio included).
As a violinist: I am currently a student at the Geneva University of Music, after having followed the pre-professional course at the Conservatoire de Musique de Genève. During my career, I won several prizes such as the Vatelot Rampal competition in Paris and the Jeunesses Musicales of Switzerland soloist, and string quartet (alongside Julie Berthollet in particular). I also attended the Indianapolis University Academy summer internship. As a Pedagogue: in addition to sporadically giving individual lessons for 4 years, I was part of the "Jeunesses Musicales of Switzerland" youth and youth internship team for three consecutive years. Overall, my goal is to allow my students to have fun making music, to express themselves as they wish and hear, with their instrument! I adapt the rhythm of my teaching, my teaching materials, the choice of songs to each, according to the requests that are made to me. My classes can also take the status of personal work support; in this case, students can obviously bring me their scores worked with their main teacher, or those they play in chamber music / orchestra. In short: The violin is an art, it learns yes, but we play! :)

Florane

If you wish, taking combined instrument and music lessons is completely possible. Times to see.

Cheryl
Violin for Everyone - Learn to play the most beautiful instrument in the world!
Hello there! I offer highly individualised and very enjoyable lessons to anyone who wants to challenge themselves with the violin. Do not be fooled - it's a tough instrument to play well! With my guidance and special interest in postural health, you will quickly learn the basics with some regular effort. I especially encourage students to meet with other students in order to get to know each other on a human level. An alum of the ABRSM, Suzuki, American and European conservatory systems (Masters with Magna cum Laude), and relentlessly studying to become better and better every week, I filter through 'The Book' to find the most effective and efficient way for the individual learner. We will find out what sounds appeal to you, and teach your unique 'voice' to come out. With a little technique and a little good taste, there's no knowing where your violin can take you! Come yourself, or with a friend or even with your child and explore the infinite depths of real music-making! (Pssst: It's never really what we expect in the beginning!) Lessons can be carried out in English, Italian, French :)

Andrew
Violin lessons for young beginners (6-15 years old) in Geneva
I am certified by the Friborg Conservatory and I am currently playing in the United Nations Orchestra. I am studying in Geneva and I give violin lessons for beginners. In my beginnings at the conservatory, I experienced the difficulty of clinging and being disciplined for violin lessons at the conservatory. I am committed to transmitting the basics in a professional manner, and to make this activity attractive and dynamic. I take care of selecting scores of theoretical notebooks, studies, training for bows, fingerings and finally, melodies and musical works.

Anna taught my daughter as she started her violin studies at the Bron School of Music. It was important for us to find a skilled teacher with high standards and also a teacher able to communicate with children and teach musicianship. Ellen Wong ▪ Anna inspired my daughter a love for the instrument and for music altogether. We have no doubt that she will devote the same passion and energy to any musical pursuit she puts her mind to. She has our unreserved recommendation. Nici Audhlam-Gardiner ▪ I learned violin with Anna for around two years. I found her helpful and patient and we made good progress, so I recommend her.
