Benefits of Skype Violin Lessons

Have you wanted to take violin lessons, but just don’t live in an area with a violin teacher? Or perhaps your schedule doesn’t afford you the time out of your day to travel to and from a teacher? Then Skype violin lessons are for you!

Skype violin lessons are becoming more and more popular for these reasons and others. Lessons require different tactics when taught online…the violin teacher must be able to describe movements and the physical feelings that a violin student should be experiencing across many miles! The violin student too learns in a different way. Corrections to technique must be made and experienced by the student. This type of learning has it’s advantages! While at an in-person lesson, a teacher can physically change the posture of a finger, elbow or shoulder, a student must process the information and figure out how to move their own body in the correct way. It gets easier as lessons progress, but both Skype violin lessons and in-person lessons are fantastic for learning the violin!

I have been teaching violin for over fifteen years. If you’re interested in Skype violin lessons, contact me! I also do in-person lessons for violin students who live in the Phoenix, Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Surprise, Sun City, Gilbert, Cave Creek, Queen Creek, Maricopa, and Guadalupe areas! Start this week! Learning the violin is inspiring, educational, and a lot of fun!

Violin lessons for adults and children!

Many people ask me when it is appropriate for a child to take violin lessons. While there are many philosophies, theories, and methods that suggest a certain age when it comes to learning a musical instrument, I prescribe to the Suzuki violin method which says “as soon as they’re potty trained!” And why not? By this point in a child’s development, they usually can manage to hold their attention for a minute or two, especially when musical games, songs, and activities are involved. Violin lessons in person or through Skype are geared towards the fun, the interesting, and the exploring mind!

One of the most popular tools I use in violin lessons (in person or on Skype) is Candlyland. Who doesn't love this game?

Through the tools learned during lessons, a child can learn discipline, focus, and the violin! Still not potty trained? Parents can do a LOT with young children…even newborns! The more music they hear through singing and recordings, the more in love they will fall with music. Not only that, but the numerous developmental benefits of music can positively effect your child’s/children’s mental focus and capacity! How fantastic is that?! Don’t know where to start? Contact me and I can help give you some suggestions in person, through email, or even on Skype to help your child get off on the right foot with violin lessons and music education!

Are you an adult who would like to learn violin? Well, no problem! It’s never too late, violin lessons are for everyone!
