My students enjoy playing the violin !!! I assure everybody a successful way of learning the violin.
I am experienced in teaching students of various cultures with different abilities, musical backgrounds and goals. I work with children, adults, beginners and advanced students.
I am German. I started playing the violin at the age of 5. I learned the violin in individual private lessons and joined orchestras and music groups at an early stage.
At the age of 15 I started studying the violin at the Lübeck Academy of Music (Germany). Instructed by my professor I started teaching the violin at the age of 16.
I have been living in NZ for 10 years together with my wife, who is a jewellery designer. In my free-time I do a lot of sports like swimming and jogging.
Other fields of interest are psychology and playing chess. I love cooking and of course I am interested in any style of music!
I teach the practical technique of violin playing and the accompanying music theory. I tailor the way of teaching and the choice of music to the needs and interests of the student.
I introduce my students to musical interaction at an early stage and let them play musical pieces together. I work with play along music.
I take time for my students, we often lose track of time because we enjoy playing together! I support them in all other issues like purchasing or printing sheet music, finding the right violin or fixing little damages. I try to provide my students with a violin for a free initial test phase. I train parents in practising with their children. I ensure progressive learning and developing the musical skills of my students.
I teach my students at my house in Torbay, but I am also happy to teach them at their home. I teach via Skype what has proven to be remarkably effective. It is a good way of tuition in our hazardous time and it can save students a lot of time and travel costs.
I invite everybody for a free and non-binding lesson and if you are a beginner for your 1st trial to play the violin!
