Violin Lessons

For all levels from complete beginner to advanced.

I am a qualified violin instructor (5) ………… has recently moved to the area.

I am hoping to establish a small violin school in town. I have taught the violin and the viola for (6)…………..than 15 years.

I have prepared many students for exam work and a large number of my ex-students have been accepted by renowned music schools such as Julliard in New York. I have a very patient teaching style, but I am also strict when necessary. Playing the violin is something (7)………….takes a lot of practice and dedication, and I make sure that my students understand this. I am able to teach all students from young children to adults. Eventually, I hope to set up a school in a downtown location, but I will start by offering home lessons. I can visit you in your home, or you can come to my home for your lessons. I will offer both group and individual lessons. The price of lessons will depend (8) ………..the length of the lesson, number of students, and the location.

Music heals. That is the conclusion of (9) …………..research on the effects of music on patient recovery time. According to researchers, playing soothing music while patients have surgery can greatly reduce their recovery time. For some time, doctors have recommended listening (10) ………… soft and gentle music at home or in the car to help reduce stress. Now they are bringing this idea into the hospital. In a recent experiment at the Charing Cross General Hospital, the recovery rate of 30 patients undergoing identical procedures was compared. 15 of the patients were able to listen to their own choice of music during, the operation. The remaining 15 patients had their operations in a silent room. The patients (11) ………. listened to music suffered less stress and surgeons reported less complications than in the other group. The group who listened to music during their operations were ready to go home, on average 2-3 days (12) ………..            than the group that did not listen to music. The hospital now intends to offer all patients a choice of music during surgery.
