”The purpose of music is to understand better: To evolve and expand our inner world. Legends of many peoples deem music to be of divine origin; thus, when we have reached the boundaries of human understanding, music points beyond, into a world that cannot be explored but merely guessed at." Zoltan Kodaly
To beginner, intermediate or advanced I offer guidance for a fresh approach to the practice of violin and voice. Trained in one of the best schools of music I have learned how to be efficient in my practice and to solve problems that are in the way of enjoying playing and performing.
Along with technique and musicality I teach body awareness for preventing and healing injuries related to the practice of the violin. I also set goals with the student and help them organize their daily practice.
Classical repertoire, folk, klezmer and improvisation.
