Concert violinist: Juilliard School, CNSM Paris (diploma of artist) graduate offers private lessons, bilingual

Methodology

Hello, I am an American violinist, and offer violin lessons for all ages and levels. Before coming to France, for 6 years in New York I gave many private lessons and also directed a class of young violinist beginners in a private school. As a teacher, I am there to help my students convey the music as best they can. Depending on your level, it may mean working on techniques, or rather discussing the variety of ideas and possible interpretations. Playing the violin is giving a voice to the music written on the page. The technique is important but it's just a way to convey the sound, a story behind the notes. For young musicians, in addition to providing a medium for expression, the violin teaches certain things useful in everyday life, such as discipline, perseverance, and self-confidence. For all these reasons, I am aware of my place as a " role model" for children. I adapt my methods and ways of giving the course according to each individual. If the violin is something new to you, I will be delighted to introduce you to the world of music from this perspective. If you are looking for serious courses to prepare for competitions and auditions, do not hesitate to talk to me about your specific needs. I have a lot of experience in preparing competitions and concerts. If you have more questions do not hesitate to contact me. Lessons offered in French or English. At your home or mine: 55 euros / 1 hour, 45 min / 45 euros, 30 min / 30 euros

Rachel est un super professeur. Ma petite fille de 4 ans progresse bien dans ses débuts au violon grâce à sa patience et à sa pédagogie bien adaptée aux petits.
Je la conseille à tous les parents que leurs enfants débutent ou non.

Rachel is a great teacher. She is very patient and is doing an awesome job with my 4-year-old daughter. Plus she gives the best advice in how to help to practice between two lessons.
I highly recommend her for all the kids who 'd like to play the violin.

Thank you so much Rachel

Emma

I have been working regularly with Rachel for the last two years, primarily in our violin duo Deux Mèches. She is extremely talented, musical, creative, imaginative, and energetic - all qualities that make her an exceptional performer and also teacher. I would highly recommend her as a teacher for students of any age and level.
