Do you offer beginner lessons to children with no previous musical experience?

你教没有学习过音乐的孩子吗?

Yes! I have over 10+ years experience of private teaching and specialize in teaching young children and adults with no prior musical experience or education. Most of my students want to learn both piano and violin instead of going to two different teachers. I also teach theory and have supervised, taught, and evaluated several Graduate Courses for Violin Education at the University Level.

Most of my adult students come from a variety of fields, including software engineers, IT architects, government employees, bank management, marketing, lawyers, and young adults who have an interest in music. The other group are high school students involved with senior strings programs who want a boost in their confidence or are pursuing an RCM High School Credit.

 

I also teach serious pre-professional students for both violin and piano - several of which have gone on to complete their ARCT Diplomas and major in Music Performance at the University Level.

是的! 我有超过十年的私教课经验,尤其擅长教授儿童或成人初学者没有任何音乐学习经验。

我大部分的学生想同时学钢琴和小提琴,而不用请两个不同的老师。我同时也教音乐理论并指导教学以及评估数个大学小提琴课程。我大部分的成年人学生来自不同的领域,包括程序员,网络工程师,政府员工,金融,市场推广,律师,和对音乐感兴趣的人群。另外一个群体是专业学习弦乐的高中生,他们有志于提升他们的信心或取得RCM高中学分。我也教那些半专业的学生小提琴和钢琴,

他们中的几个已经完成了他们 ARCT 文凭并主修大学的音乐表演。

Where should I get violin supplies?

那里可以购买小提琴和相关附件 ?

I highly recommend The Soundpost - a great place for violin strings, bow re-hairs, shoulder rests, instrument maintenance, rosin, books, etc. for the beginner to advanced student.

Their shop (93 Grenville St, Toronto, ON) is located one block away from where I live.

They also supply very cheap instrument rentals for students who want to try out for a couple of months with no commitment.

我非常推荐 The Soundpost - 个好地方可以购买小提琴琴弦,换弓毛,肩垫,乐器保养,松香,乐谱,适合初学者和进阶的学习者。他们的商店 (93 Grenville St, Toronto, ON) 离我的住所只有一个街口。

他们也提供给只想尝试短期学习乐器的学生非常价廉的乐器租赁。

Can you help me set up/tune/fix my violin?

Can you accompany me to The Soundpost and choose an instrument for me? 

你可以帮我的小提琴,设置,调音,修理吗?

I am happy to help students with their usual 'maintenance problems' in terms of getting the right string pitch, fixing the bridge, and broken strings. I have also helped students in the past choose the right instrument at The Soundpost for them, but charge hourly for this time.

我非常乐意帮助我学生校调乐器以获得正确的音调,修正琴桥,以及换弦.

我过去也帮助学生在Soundpost选择乐器,但是按小时收费.

I want to prepare my child for RCM Examinations & Local Competitions.

Do you provide accompaniment as well? 

我想为我的孩子准备RCM考试和当地的比赛。

你会提供伴奏吗? 

Yes, I do. I have accompanied at the National Level of the Canadian Music Competitions before for Violin/Piano duets and Piano Concerti.

Students who study with me will be working with me personally as an accompanist for their exams and performances, with no extra rehearsal charge.

However, on the day of the performance and exams, I charge $80/hour of accompanist fee for my time.

是的,我会。我伴奏过加拿大国家级别的钢琴小提琴音乐比赛。对于学生准备考试和表演,我会为他伴奏,没有额外的排练收费。然而,在比赛和表演的当天,我会收取$80一小时的伴奏费。

How would you like us to pay? 

我们如何付费?

I've found with my students that cash before/after the lesson, or e-transfer works best on a per lesson basis. Parents who bring several children for lessons are also welcome to pay for all monthly lessons in advance at the beginning of the month.

现金和电子转账,并按每节课收费是最佳的方式。

对于带多个孩子来学习的家长,可以在月初提前支付当月所有的课费。

~

Can we record lessons? Can lessons be filmed?

I encourage my students to audio record their lessons as they see fit, as it helps review of the material covered during their personal practices. As well, I offer full HD videography for lessons - usually popular with young children and parents - and a private link with the edited and processed video for the parents to review. I charge a small fee of $5 (each) for these videos.

Please note that for students who wish to record, that they are not permitted to reproduce, promote, post, share, or use these recordings for any purpose other than their personal private use.

~

Do you have any cancellation policies? 

如何取消预约的课程?

Students who cancel lessons within a 24 hour time frame before their scheduled lesson due to any reason other than a medical or family situation will not receive a refund or make-up lesson.

This simple rule allows fairness to other students who request a certain time of the week.

学生在 24 小时内取消课程,如果不是由于生病或家庭状况,将不会收到退款或补课。

这一原则是为了保证其他学生选择时间的公平性。
