Vyelin Studio

Suzuki Violin Lessons - "Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education" -Plato

Vyelin StudioI have been teaching Suzuki Method violin lessons in the Napa Valley for eight years. I have 26 students ages three to twelve years old. I feel blessed to have been able to learn to play the violin when I was a child and am grateful to my violin teacher for the joy and fulfillment I have received from being a violinist and would now like to pass this gift to other children. I believe that the ability to make music is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child. My approach to instruction draws from a Suzuki base using creative and imaginative activities, playing musical games, and teaching rhythm and movement. My goal is for the students and the parents to enjoy musical study. The early years are crucial for developing mental processes and muscle coordination. Listening to music should begin at birth; formal training may begin at age three or four, but it is never too late to begin. Give your child the gift of music.

Meeting: Lesson are in Yountville and the times are flexible.
