My name is Amanda. I have almost 11 years of experience under my belt. I have had many students before and have experience in teaching others and working with them to meet their goals.
I can teach those of most ages. Eight years old and up are my preferences but I am willing to instruct younger children if needed.
I am currently teaching my 10-year old stepson and 6-year old stepdaughter how to play the violin. I plan on teaching my other two stepsons and my own daughter once they reach the proper age.
My last student, whom can be contacted for comfirmation, was a student of mine for a few months. She enjoyed how "untense" I was and found herself to be rather comfortable having me as her instructor. She liked the way that I was teaching her and helping with anything she needed.
She left as my student due to her work place giving her more permanent hours, so she worked later into the day. And family issues arose. She will be returning soon. We both decided that until she could get the more important things in her life balanced, that it was best for me to end her violin instructions for a bit.
You do need to furnish your own violin but if you or your child is large enough for a 3/4's size-one size away from a full sized violin, I can furnish one to be used. For me to furnish such, it would not be allowed to leave my home after classes end, so your lesson times would need to be negotiated to make up for the lack of practice at your own residence.
I am lenient but strict at the same time. There is time to be friendly and converse but either before or after the lessons themselves.
