Professional symphony musician offering online violin and viola lessons to students age 6-adult

Methodology

I enjoy teaching students of a variety of age groups and skill levels. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, I will be teaching exclusively online for the foreseeable future. I hope that I can use this unique online learning opportunity to give students the tools to be in charge of their own progress and musical development. It is my goal that the students will be able to apply the technical aspects that they have learned in their lessons to playing their favourite pieces.

Background

I am currently a viola player with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra. I received my BMus from the University of Manitoba and my MMus from the University of Ottawa. In addition, I have obtained a Performer's ARCT from the Royal Conservatory of Music and a Performance Diploma from the University of Ottawa. While I was attending the University of Ottawa, I did a practicum with an organization called OrKidstra, where I got a lot of hands-on experience teaching violin and viola students in a Sistema-inspired program.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 50/h

Details

Typically for beginner and/or younger students, lessons are more effective if they are half an hour long. Therefore, I will only charge $25 per lesson if you choose to receive half hour lessons. If you have already been playing for about 3 years or more, I would recommend an hour long lesson. Lessons must be cancelled 24 hours in advance or no show fees still apply.
