Violin and viola lessons online with hand and heart

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
"Music is learned through music." (Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy)

Highly qualified violin (optionally viola) lessons. Well-founded technical structure based on natural motion sequences. Pieces of music of all styles. Music theory and sheet music learning with ease.
Playful lessons for children with colors, pictures and child-friendly methodology that is fun.
Differentiated musical design and technical refinement for adults.


I started teaching my first violin student when I was 16 years old. After graduating from high school, parallel to my music studies at the time, I began to teach violin at a youth music school in the Rhineland.
After completing my studies, I also taught at the youth music school in Aachen in addition to my private students. Since 2008 I have taught violin, viola, orchestral conducting and chamber music at the State Youth Music School in Hamburg and at the State Conservatory in Schwerin for many years. A large and loyal swarm of private students accompanied me for over 30 years. Taking care of this with hand and heart was and is a great pleasure for me.

About Me

My name is Birgit. I studied classical violin and chamber music at the Highschool for Music and Dance in Cologne and Royal Academy for Music, Maastricht (NL). My formative teachers were Prof. Hariolf Schlichtig (former viola player in the Cherubini Quartet), Prof. Charles-André Linale (former Primarius in the Orpheus Quartet) and Prof. Szreder (well known for his concerts with contemporary music).
I completed my three successive studies with a diploma for instrumental pedagogy, an artistic maturity exam and a chamber music exam with top marks. Since then I have been following a stream of further development in music and also personally, because for me standstill is unthinkable and lifelong learning is very fulfilling.
I can be heard regularly in concerts with various duo partners and ensembles. I have been doing classical chamber music for many years, plus gypsy music, klezmer and free improvisation.
I am very keen to experiment and I love "crossover" of all kinds with classic violin, improvisation and also electric violin.
I have now released 5 CDs with my own pieces, some composed - some improvised.

I taught my first violin student when I was 16 years old. After graduating from high school, I began teaching violin at a youth music school, parallel to my music studies at this time.
After completing my studies, I taught in addition to my private students at the youth music school in Aachen. Since 2008 I have been teaching violin, viola, orchestra conducting and chamber music at the State Youth Music School in Hamburg and at the State Conservatory in Schwerin for many years. A large and loyal swarm of private students accompanied me for over 30 years. Taking care of their development was and is a great pleasure for me.

I love to pass on the ability to play the queen of instruments, the violin, including her big sister, the viola.

Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

Learn English Efficiently: Customized Lessons (CELTA Certified)
Hi, my name is Jenni and I am a bilingual native speaker of English and Finnish. In both English and Finnish I have a very neutral accent: my students often tell me they find my accent easy to understand. I am a CELTA certified English teacher and have been teaching English full-time since 2014 in countries such as Ireland, China, Japan and now in Austria. I have taught both adults and children in private lessons as well as groups. My students have been everything from business professionals to teenagers preparing for their exchange year abroad to young children having their first contact with a foreign language. My greatest strength as a teacher is my experience from using different methods of teaching as well as different levels of students. I customize all my lessons to my students’ needs. Whether you are just beginning to learn English or already have a high level of English and are looking to keep up your skills or perhaps master a grammar point, I am confident I can help you achieve your goal. As a teacher I will customize each of our lessons to your needs and wants. Usually this means that I will assess your level of English during our first lesson. Then by asking you specific questions I find out more about why you are studying English and what is the goal you wish to achieve. We will also together decide what kind of materials (if any) we will use during our lessons. All of this I do so I know how to help you achieve your personal goal. A happy student makes a happy teacher! I look forward to our lessons :)
