Emmanuelle Scully is a very talented musician who is truly gifted in bringing the complexities of the violin into line with the developmental maturity of children.
I have an eight-year-old and a five-year-old. Both have been taking violin with Mrs. Scully for one year. They started at ages four and seven. When we began our lessons, I assumed that she would give the exact same beginner lesson to each child. Though they were each starting at the same beginning point, she tailor fit the lesson to the developmental age of my four-year-old and gave a second lesson to my seven-year-old that was uniquely designed for his developmental age. As a professional in child development, I am Odd at her ability to instinctively know and target each child’s unique ability and stage of development.
Mrs. Scully is definitely serious about the violin and teaching proper technique right away. However, she does this in a way that is fun and engaging to children. My children look forward to seeing Mrs. Scully.
Mrs. Scully is passionate about teaching, even the youngest children, to read music. She does this in a very calculated and Step-by-step format. The forward momentum is so gradual that the children hardly realize they are incorporating the next step. Mrs. Scully has authored and illustrated her own violin book, targeted for young beginners. Her book is beautifully Illustrated, creative, unique, engaging, and very well thought out. My children love her book because it is beautiful and fun. I love her book because it takes the complex and pulls it back to the simple, then moves learners forward with gradual momentum.
Mrs. Scully is a gifted teacher. She weaves her passion for music and proper technique with gentleness, kindness, enthusiasm, and creativity.
We are 100% confident that you will adore Emmanuelle Scully, love the way she interacts with and respects your children, and appreciate her approach to teaching violin. She is the kind of teacher that makes you look forward to lessons. Not only will your children develop musical talent under her influence, but they will thrive and flourish in who they are growing into. I love her influence over my children and wish that more children could experience her.
