Beginning and Intermediate Private Violin Lessons.
I have been playing violin for the past 9 years. I am currently studying under Valerie Gardner who received her masters degree from the Curtis Institute, and also played in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. About 95% of her students make All-State every year. Many people have flown from all over the world to take from her. I teach classical violin, using Suzuki books for beginners, and Kriesler books, along with many other concertos for intermediate students. I use several technique books, including Sevcik, Kreutzer, Sitt, Dont. I have been able, for the past three years, to try out in a competition called, Georgia College and State University Performance Competition for Strings and Guitar. The first year, I won 2nd place, and the second year, I won 1st place, and this year, I won 2nd place. I have also had the privilege of trying out for the GMEA All-State Orchestra for the past three years, and each year I won one of the top 15 seats in the state. Just this past year, I competed in a violin solo competition at Bob Jones University for the High School Fall Festival, and won 3rd place.
