I am happy that your search for a violin teacher for your child has brought you to my website. It makes me even happier if the wish to play violin comes from the child itself. That is the best thing that can happen to you!
Even if just thinking about having a wooden cat in the house soon makes you nervous, I want to comfort you: until now, none of my pupils has been in the squeaking and scratching phase for a long time. Depending on age and previous knowledge of music, we will sing, dance and clap a lot together. We will also use small percussion instruments on a regular basis. The violin in particular and music making in general is so much more than fast fingers and standing straight. Or, to put it differently: the broader the musical experiences of your child, the more varied will be his/her musical imagination and the faster the sound and feeling for timing will develop.
