Violin Lessons in Calgary.
-I offer violin in-home lessons in Calgary.
-Is there any difference between in-home and in-studio lessons?
-Are in-home lessons less effective?
I think is exactly the same. I offer in-home lessons for several
reasons: the students feel more comfortable at home and they
(or their parents) don't have to waste an extra time and money to
get to the studio. How effective the lessons are depend on the
quality of the teacher and the dedication of the student. But if
you prefer to get the lessons in a different place we can talk
-No previous music or violin knowledge is
We can start from scratch. My goal as a teacher is to make my
students understand how the violin works and to set up their
violin technique correctly, Not only to learn couple of songs ...
-No age limit: kids and adults are welcome.
It happens a lot: some parents, when I start working with their
kids, want to start or restart learning violin. That's great. Obviously
the goals with adult starters are different than with kids but there
is no reason you can't start learning something you want to.
Actually the adults learn more quickly.
-30 min lesson: $35 -45 min lesson: $50, 60 min lesson: $65
I recommend 30 min lessons for kids, no longer ... Its really hard
for them to focus for more than half an hour.
-Want to prepare the RCM exams? We can do it.
-Violin lessons are available in English, Spanish
My Mother tongue is Russian. I lived in Mexico for 25 years
so Spanish is my second language.
- Need references?
No problem: you can ask about my job my real students or their
parents ... Currently I have 33 Students.
- What do you need to start?
You need a violin. If you already have one that's great. If you don't
please ask me before you buy something. The size of the violin depends
on the students measures. Some younger kids are bigger than some
older ones. We have to measure the student's arm to decide the size of
the violin he/she needs. If you prefer not to buy an instrument you can
rent it as well.
