Violin Lessons

I believe that learning music is something that everyone should experience at least once in their life. My goal as an educator is to help my students find confidence in themselves and their playing abilities through a patient and creative system personalized for each pupil. I will dedicate myself to teach students skills such as proper posture and form, shifting, vibrato, bow control, tone production, and much more.

Music theory Lessons

I believe that when a musician has experience with music theory, whether it be at a basic or advanced level, the musician will be able to apply their knowledge to their performance and raise their levels of musicality significantly. I am passionate about music and music theory, and I dedicate myself to teaching my students subjects such as major and minor scale patterns, major and minor key signatures, all clefs, all types of chromatic and diatonic chords, modulation, secondary dominants, sight singing, conducting, and much more.

Overview

Hello! My name is Taylor C. and I am a current music education and music performance double major at college. I have been in love with music ever since I began piano at age five, and my love for music grows everyday. I adore teaching people of all ages and skill levels, and I am passionate and determined to help my students grow to love and appreciate music even more than they already do.

Regarding my instruments, I have been playing violin for nine years, and I have been playing viola for three years. I have had private instruction in both of those instruments. I also have intermediate skills and knowledge in cello, percussion, and marimba/vibraphone/xylophone.

My performing experience entails orchestral playing, which includes section leader and concertmaster, chamber music, and solo performances.

I have been a freelance violin and viola instructor for two years, and I have experience teaching children below the age of 10, including special needs children. In regards to music theory, I passed AP Music Theory with a 5 on the AP exam in high school, and I am currently enrolled in the highest level of theory at my college.

Some of my major accomplishments in music include performing a violin solo in England in 2012, performing viola solos in various locations in France in 2014, and performing at the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall in 2014.

I hope that we have a chance to work together!

Taylor C.
