Violin Lessons Online (via Zoom) or In-Person (Ashford, Kent or Covent Garden, London): I am a professional violin teacher (Masters degree in violin) with more than 10 years experience. While always having had a passion for teaching, this has grown in the last few years with me giving private violin/theory lessons and working in a several music schools. Whether the lesson is for you or for your children my teaching approach will absolutely depend on your needs: My lessons with children are fun helping them to develop a sense of music, concentration, and coordination. Adults' lessons are adapted according to their music preferences. One of my goals is to teach my students maximise use of their sometimes limited practice time with a focus on building habits and teaching student to teach themselves. LOCATION / FEE STRUCTURE: I am very flexible with time for online lessons or in person at my home in Ashford; If the Covent Garden studio is better location for you - I teach there every Thursday ; The fee structure is different regarding studio charge and travel expenses : TEACHING APPROACH: From my teaching experience in different countries I believe that combination of different approaches are the best for building a strong technique and develop student's musicality. Along with traditional Russian violin methods, I use ABRSM, Essential Elements, Suzuki, L. Auer (Maia Bang) along with Mazas, Kreutzer, Schradieck etude books depending on student's needs. Together we will go through some basic holding violin and bow exercises, working with musical ear training and improving your rhythm/timing. Combining different technical skills, I can teach you all styles of music - from Classical to Jazz, Irish, Russian, Latin , Gypsy or even Pop music. Willing to work with ABRSM exams program and music theory as well. Please ask me any questions you had. * For all ages and levels. * Music development for children from age 5. * Learn to play by ear and improvise. * ABRSM exams * Music theory (up to grade 7) * Over 25 years playing and 10 years of teaching experience (Including more than 2 years of online teaching).
