Violin Lessons (for adults)
1 Year later and I feel Amber has taught me so much about the violin and music! Always positive, patient, and always kept the lessons fun. Hard to imagine a better violin teacher.Aug 29, 2016Verified
Violin Lessons (for adults)
Amber is an extremely involved teacher. I find that my progress with the violin is not as fast as most other people who take up the instrument, and I am unable to hear many of the mistakes I make. Despite this, she has been very patient in helping me understand what mistakes I am making and why. In between scheduled lessons, Amber has been consistent in answering questions, and suggesting sheet music. At first I was hesitant about taking musical lessons online, but Im very happy with what I am learning.Nov 30, 2015Verified
Amber is an excellent Violin and Viola teacher! She does a great job steering me in the right direction on what to practice and has very helpful pointers. Each lesson is a positive experience and I always look forward to the next lesson!Nov 30, 2015
Amber is a very patient, encouraging teacher who helps my son look beyond the initial drudgery of learning how to hold a bow, place fingers, etc. He is already playing a few songs of his choice after only a couple of months of lessons. The passion she has for playing the viola and violin is always evident.Dec 1, 2015
Amber was such an amazing teacher!! She made it fun to learn the violin and she was extremely patient with me. She is encouraging, especially when it can be really frustrating in the beginning to learn a new instrument. I highly recommend hiring her :)Mar 27, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lesson payments are collected the first lesson of every month. Wiggle room is available on the rate if needed.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Lessons include ear training, technique building through scales, etudes and various exercises, along with repertoire. You'll learn to play by ear and read music. Because there is so much to do in each lesson, 90% of my students take an hour lesson. Half hour lessons are also available too.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Music in Viola Performance from the University of Arizona and a Master of Music from Temple University in Viola Performance, and am currently auditioning for Doctorate programs. I have performed with The Arden Theater here in Philadelphia, and have performed solo, in a chamber setting, and orchestral settings in the finest concert halls across China, Italy, England, and the USA.
