Teach You Violin Basics
I will take an hour and teach you how to:
- hold the violin bow
- how to arrange your wrist
- names of the strings
- basic practicing exercises
- rosining and tightening your bow
- how to tell when you need to replace strings/bow
- how to produce the different volumes (know as "dynamics" in music)
- the importance of fingering
- looking in the mirror and practicing
I will also field any question you may have, and am willing to write up basic music theory worksheets/find them online for you.
To clarify - this is not for learning how to play songs, this is for the basics of what you need to know in order to play properly without injuring yourself and to produce the best sound.
I can do this over Skype, but then you'd have to provide you own violin and understand I won't be able to rearrange your fingers and limbs to be shaped properly. I would also require about an hour and a half, since I would need to spend more time just telling you how to arrange instead of being able to show you in person.
Training & Qualifications
I've been playing violin for about a decade, and learned from someone whose daughter went to Carnegie Hall (Violet Pan's daughter, Victoria Pan.)
I have also been schooled in piano, so I can teach the theory of notes based off the piano as well.
Availability & Preferences
Mornings every day, though it'll change since I have 2 jobs. Just message me and I can figure it out.
