Vanessa's Violin Studio
Suzuki Violin and Viola
Whole Music Learning
A big goal for our studio is to provide a music community to support parents as your child develops musical ability. Hopefully our musical journey together can last many years! Like Dr. Suzuki, I believe character development goes hand in hand with musical development. Tone, technique, music theory and personal character are a part of the private and group lessons.
The early years are crucial for developing mental processes and muscle coordination. Formal training may begin at age 3 or 4, but it is never too late to begin.
Planning to be out of town? We can still meet for lessons at your scheduled time over Skype, Google Chat or Facetime! Although we can accomplish about as much online as in person, I prefer to teach in person as much as possible and reserve online lessons only for out of town trips, sickness and severe weather.
The studio will follow District 11 school policy in terms of weather for cancellations. When D11 schools are canceled due to weather, the studio will be closed.
Home Coach Classes
The success of our music studio is possible because of supportive engaged parents! Parents invest several hours before their child is enrolled in formal instruction. During Home Coach classes parents get to learn violin basics, how to help their child manage frustration during home practice and lots more!
To get a head start, please read Nurtured by Love by Dr. Suzuki and purchase the Suzuki Violin School Volume 1 CD, or download this music volume on itunes!
Process to Enroll
Step one is to go over studio policies and consider the wait list may be a year out. Step two is to come observe a private and/or group lesson and interview me. Step three is to schedule Home Coach classes. These take 2-3 months. After this, you can be placed on the wait list so formal lessons for your child may begin as soon as a time opens up!
I’m so grateful for the referrals form past and present students. You make it possible for me to live my dream of making a difference in kids’ lives. Thank You!
