What Can I learn?

What sets KC Violinist apart from other Virtual Teachers? 

  • Over 10 years of distance teaching experience.

  • Personalized instruction from a teacher with extensive technical background and experience - I know how to help students learn a relaxed, solid technique by guiding them through exercises that allow them to feel the proper technique rather than just relying on explanations.  This creates independent learners from the very beginning that aren't as frustrated during individual practice. Lessons in person can sometimes be quicker as the teacher can physically adjust and help guide the student. However, many times that can lead to confusion and frustration during individual practice as it seemed much easier during the lesson. During my distance lessons, the student is learning how to make those adjustments on their own. For example, we use tapping and large motions to help create relaxation, mirror practice, breathing, and so much more to help students learn correct posture and various techniques. These exercises then directly translate to how the student practices when I'm not there.

  • Individual google drive folders for every student, allowing them to read notes directly from the instructor every week, organize music, see videos and photos taken by the instructor when needed to assist with practice.

  • Multiple camera angles make it quick and easy to show students what they need to be successful.

  • Quarterly recitals are included in your tuition! This helps keep students motivated to practice. Students get all the benefits of online lessons while also still getting a chance to perform regularly.

Benefits studying online:
1.) Comfort - Study in your own home so you or your child can feel free to explore new techniques and music in a comfortable environment.
2.) Technology - Quick, easy access to a whole host of resources during online lessons like music editing software, YouTube videos, metronome, sheet music, interactive music theory, and more.
3.) Time - save time commuting, and save wasted lesson time with unpacking, tuning, etc.
4.) Creativity - online lessons make song writing and improvisation even easier through quick access to music notation software, allowing students to hear what they've written with real time feedback from the teacher.
5.) Digital resources - use personalized videos and notes from each lesson to help guide home practice. Lessons can also be recorded to watch again at a later date.
6.) Independence - students learn tricks and skills that allow them to fix their own technique and ultimately become more independent students. Students learn to take their own notes in their music, relax their own postures, read music quicker, tune their own instruments, and so much more.
7.) Convenience - no need to reschedule if a student or teacher has the sniffles or the weather is bad. You can even have a lesson when on vacation if you'd like. Online lessons get rid of the need to be in a certain place at a certain time.
