What violin teaching method is used?

The Paschal Method is the first used in teaching new students. This method ensures that they do not create bad habits and sets them up for success. This method can take up to 12 weeks to complete based on the experience and age of the student. The next method used is Suzuki. Students begin in book 1 and must pass off each song memorized and with the background piano. This method gradually increases the level of difficulty of the music. Along with Suzuki the students will begin to learn and master scales which are the building blocks of music.

 

As the student increases in skill and ability they are allowed to bring additional music to their lessons that they would like to learn. This flexibility assures that the students enjoy their experience with the violin as they explore music that they love. After years of practice if the student completes the seventh book of Suzuki we will begin High level training learning sonatas and concertos. 

How does billing work?

Students will pay the monthly payment on the first of each month through Venmo. Checks and cash are not accepted. If the payment is not made on that date, lessons will not be offered for that month. 

What policies should I be aware of with violin lessons?

If you are interested in violin lessons please contact me. When a lesson time is decided the lessons policies will be sent to the student's email. After looking over the policies the student/parent will initial and sign the policies and return them through email. During this process feel free to ask questions about the policies.
