Violin Lessons / Modern and Baroque Violin / Classes Making Music
The lessons can be adapted to the student's ideas. The violin is considered one of the most difficult instruments to learn. I want to enable the student to gain early access to the instrument so that fun and progress can coexist from the beginning. The teaching system is based on the learning level of the student. Teaching will be positively challenging but at the same time easy and stimulating. It is desired that the student prepare for the upcoming class.
