I am happy that your search for a violin teacher has brought you to my website! No matter how much you already know about playing the violin, one thing is certain: it is a very complex matter, that will challenge your efficiency, attentiveness, endurance, sense of humour and your relationship to yourself and others. That means that you can look forward to an exciting and sometimes confronting adventure- an adventure extending far beyond managing the bow, four strings good ears and reading notes.
The reasons that people have to want to learn the violin are just as varied and personal as the future violinists are. In any case my assumption is that every motivated learner of the violin is not just fascinated by the sound of the instrument, but also by the effortless flow, the floating lightness and the spontaneous freedom of movement with which their idols play their instrument.
That brings us to the red thread in my teaching: the quest for unity between the sonic ideal and physical feeling with the goal of permanently being as relaxed as possible, and to play without unnecessary effort ( = Body-Sound Connection). When you can do that, the world of violin playing will open up to you.
As a teacher, I see myself in the first place as a guide in the learning process of my pupils to become better at listening to themselves. That means both listening to the sound of your own violin and the musical expression thereof, and listening to your own body.
