Solid basics of technique is essential to mastery of violin and viola playing and there is no possible way to separate the basics of movement coordination and instrumental technique. My mind-body centered approach produces violin students that advance about twice as fast as the average music student, often win perfect scores in ABRSM and NYSSMA competitions and enjoy themselves in the process. Students can be free from the destructive physical (and mental) habits developed so often from mainstream approaches.
Professors and students from major music schools across the globe have come to NYC or invited me to teach lessons/classes at their schools. Currently I am accepting all levels/ages of violin and viola students. I also accept advanced students/professionals of other instruments/disciplines for lessons. Professional musicians I’ve worked with report new found ease of playing and increased facility, pitch accuracy as well and freedom of expression as well as deceased performance anxiety, pain and fatigue from playing.
Lessons available in Brooklyn NY, Basking Ridge & Pine Brook, NJ. In some cases I may be available for house calls and online via Skype. For questions or to set-up an appointment time use the form below:
