Welcome, Everyone! This is my great pleasure to welcome you to my violin learning and playing blog! I love violin and hope you do too! My blog is intended for my violin students and anyone who loves this instrument and curious about it, who wants to hear new ideas of how to improve and work on pieces of music.
I feel this is my mission in life and duty to share all my knowledge from my 35 years of playing violin with anyone who wants to learn this amazing instrument. I am also learning and improving daily and find better ways to play. Even after so many years of playing I still like to take private lessons occasionally with some great violinists and other musicians in Ottawa and continue gathering musical wisdom so I could use it in my playing and pass it on….
Welcome, Dear Parents! This blog is also for parents of violin students and their resource centre for step by step technique and practice guide and helpful videos that I am making almost daily. As we all know the key of success for music students are their parents who invest their time, efforts resources and all the patience they have into nourishing their child’s music education. Many important topics and questions that parents may have will be discussed in this blog and videos provided here.
What to expect? The content of this blog will include lesson plan and videos for complete beginners, intermediate and advanced violin students. Specific techniques will be explained and demonstrated in attached videos or linked to videos on my Youtube channel. Each topic, technique or piece will be easy to find as I will keep them organized in the best and easy search friendly. I will also continue making tutorial videos of many pieces from the leading books like Suzuki, RCM, ABC violin, etc as well as most popular pieces and fiddle tune with some helpful tips and practicing ideas. Those pieces will be placed in alphabetic order and easy to find for those who need video support in their practice.
Violin related articles and news! I hope to share violin related materials that I find and some useful resources and websites. I would also welcome ideas and suggestions of a good article to share. Please write me and send links by email found on my contact page. Violin celebrities news are good too.
Sheet music. I also hope to share some sheet music together with videos of some pieces that are not restricted by copyright laws and won’t get me into trouble. For those that are I will suggest what books I use and help to direct you to those books. If anyone has request or suggestion of a piece I should feature in my discussion or video, please let me know. I am interested in all kinds of music, classical and beyond.
