The violin is a grateful instrument to play, but is also a very difficult instrument to play, especially during the first stage of the study. Therefor it is important that there will be practiced regularly. In general it is not very difficult to achieve this when the pupil just started with the lessons. However, as soon as the pupil gets used to the situation, often the pupil finds it more and more difficult to maintain the regularity of practicing. Maintaining and developing discipline is therefor very important. Even for amateurs. To help in this i teach at the pupil's home, so that the threshold of the need of traveling to the teacher each time can't be an argument anymore to cancel the lesson.
I teach in and around the Hague. The places that belong to this region are the Hague, Rijswijk, Voorburg, Leidschendam, Wassenaar, Scheveningen and Zoetermeer.
As soon as the pupil is ready for it i will encourage him to play in an amateur - or youth orchestra. This is not only fun to do but also very instructive. It increases the knowledge of the musical repertoire, the musical intelligence and it increases the skill in playing together. Above all for children it is an effective and especially a fun way to develop themselves socially. For the young pupils, also beginners, there is theViotta Orchestra and for the more older and more advanced pupil is the Bataafs Symphony Orchestra een good option.
