Special adult beginners - Viola lessons - Private teacher for 15 years

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
A graduate of viola and musical training at the Conservatoire de Nantes, I have been a private teacher for 15 years.

You have always dreamed of knowing how to play the viola (because yes, it is more beautiful than the violin), but you think that it will take you at least 10 years to be able to play a piece and you lack the time for them. course and to practice?

Over the years, I have developed a methodology particularly suited to the needs of adult beginners (late hours, time management to practice, individualized work methodology, rapid and targeted progression, on-demand repertoires).

My goal is to quickly gain autonomy over the repertoire of your choice (classical, variety, jazz, etc.).

Learning the viola requires additional education in musical training. This is why I integrate in my courses a teaching in musical training adapted to the level of each one.

Classes take place at my home (Étoile) or by webcam.

Reviews (1)

Professeur gentil, aux méthodes douces, il est sérieux, sait rassurer/encourager ses élèves et les motiver, sans qu'il ne tombe dans une facilité exagérée. Il peut être exigent et patient à la fois. Son amour de la musique se transmet de façon naturelle. Malgré son très haut niveau musical il sait aussi communiquer simplement et s'adapter à nos besoins. Je suis ravie d'avoir choisi ce professeur et je vous le recommande.

Fernando
Violin teacher specializing in the Suzuki method
“Talent grows through exercise…” - Shinichi Suzuki I have been giving violin lessons for 10 years, my working method is based on the Suzuki method, the mother tongue method. A child first learns to speak before learning to read and write. Language learning is done mainly by listening and mimicry. For music, it's the same, you must first master the basics of the instrument before knowing how to read notes and scores. Whatever the age of the student, beginner level or confirmed, I offer private lessons of violin and viola. No knowledge or musical notion is necessary beforehand, the theoretical achievements are made as and when the discovery of the instrument.

Toby
Viola lessons, all levels and ages (in English, Russian, French or German)
Hi there, my name is Toby and I’m a professional viola, violin and music theory teacher based in Berlin. I teach in person at students' location and my location as well as online. As well as regular instrumental teaching and ensemble coaching of all age groups and levels, I’ve led numerous professional workshops, including ‘Music First’ and ‘Music Masters’ workshops in London and was an assistant on the Primary Arpeggione viola course and Springgrove music competition. I teach in English, Russian, French and German and am trained in a variety of methods, including Suzuki, regularly preparing students for music exams at all levels. I am currently a member of the European String Teachers’ Association, and have participated in ESTA conferences across Europe. I also regularly accompany students on the piano, and work on music theory, aural and sight reading skills for exams, including on grades in theory and academic exams across all stages. As a performing musician, I've played as a soloist in venues across Europe and participated in several international competitions, notably receiving the Barbirolli prize at the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition 2019. I was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra in 2018, and a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2014-2015, appearing on BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and a televised BBC Prom, as well as being involved in the NYO outreach programme ‘inspire’ in schools across London, including workshops and interactive performances at the Royal Festival Hall. Reviews: Tatyana M. Toby is a fantastic teacher. He is very reliable as he is consistently organized and punctual. I constantly see progress in my child’s music skills because every lesson Toby delivers is effective and well-structured. I highly recommend him to all who wish to learn or improve on their music skills. Pamela B. Toby is really a great teacher, who teaches pieces well and teases out the feeling while playing. We particularly liked that. Good technique is one thing, but feeling the music is such an important element in music and in learning a piece of music. He also teaches theory very well! Hanna S. Toby can explain things very well and understandably, is patient and friendly and easily adapts to the level of the student More below

Fiachra
Violin,Viola, or Music Theory Lessons (suitable for all ages & abilities)
Greetings! I am currently studying viola performance and education at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I also completed a Diploma in Music Education and Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music before coming to The Netherlands. I have had lots of experience teaching in schools and privately, and I get so much joy teaching people and helping them learn an instrument. My main goal as a teacher is to help students find their passion and love for music and for playing an instrument. I am also very practical in my approach to teaching, always trying to make things as clear as possible for each and every student to understand. When teaching young children, I find that using various different games with and without the instrument helps a lot with their understanding and development. This resonates well with their impressive abilities to play for many hours every day - something which I think is very important for young children to make the most of while they have it. My understanding of the lessons is that every student should come out with the best feeling of wanting to improve their playing, and I always try to motivate every student in whichever way works best for them. I am also very open to using different approaches when it is not working for the student, and I am known to listen very well to feedback like this. I have been teaching violin and viola for many years, and I also teach piano to an intermediate level. For those who would like to learn music theory, or improve their knowledge of the subject, I also teach that. The majority of students who start out do so on the violin, and some change to viola some time later. Some students who begin their musical journey on the violin go on to play not only viola but other stringed instruments such as cello and double bass if they grow away from the violin at any stage - so choosing violin in the beginning will certainly give you the most options.
