I have teaching experience with kids from basics to advanced levels both in the U.K. and abroad.
My father has a music school abroad, where he regularly deals with beginners all the way to advanced levels. I regularly help the students when I am around.
I teach the student to love not only playing the violin but to have love for the music. I usually try to figure out what each individual needs to be able to advance to the next level.
I think if I have to say one key factor that I can offer, is that I’m good at giving the student the right tools to know how to practice between lessons, so improvements can easily be achieved if the homework is done regularly.
