My work is my pleasure. Playing violin allows me to express myself through sounds and emotions. Teaching violin allows me to help other people to find pleasure in playing music.
Violin is one of the few instruments that resembles a lot with a human voice. It can be and melodic, and articulative, and rhythmical and singing. Learning violin engages and stimulates hearing, coordination, imagination. That’s why regular lessons include:
- fine and large motorics
- music theory
- music history
My aim is to help you to become a confident musician, who has all the tools to reach own goals and potential.
