Finding Your Violin's Unique Voice
Research by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) reveals that nine in ten children want to learn a musical instrument. Among the many to choose from, a violin ranks one of the most popular ones. Not only this small instrument often leads an entire orchestra, but also, it can play many beautiful solo and ensemble repertories.
But soon, one might realize that it's not so easy to tame this small instrument, nor does it sound as beautiful as recordings. Frustrated and disappointed, one might be easily turned off and stop pursuing the violin.
I was in the same shoes until I found my violin's unique voice. I used to think that mastering fingerings would help me become a great performer, but it wasn't enough -- although having that skill set is a plus! I needed to find the voice of the violin that only I can play out of my instrument. My hope for you is that you will find yours too.
Let's begin this journey to discover a newfound passion and voice for your violin. I will walk alongside you and be there to guide you. I promise that once you test the waters, you will fall in love with the violin!
