Music is a fundamental element of many disciplines including math, philosophy and art. Music stimulates brain development. Violin especially helps much more than other instruments. When you move the bow up or down, we develop the two parts of the brains equally. Up bow helps art side of the brain to work and down bown favours discipline and calculation.
In addition, violin helps to develop perfect pitch. As the violin focuses on single tones more and spend lots of time to work on tones, we can develop perfect pitch.
Music can be fun and joyful, but I believe joy and fun come once you have some technique. It might be difficult to start but the hard work really pays off later.
I have a master’s degree on music performance from University of Ottawa and bachelor’s degree from Vancouver Academy of Music.
I studied both piano and violin from age of three. My mother was a pianist and I was highly trained from early childhood.
My violin teacher was very special. He studied with Nathan Milstein and he was a scholar himself throughout his whole life. His approach to the violin technique was exceptional and I learned lot from him.
In addition to my musical career, I have been working as an associate member of Ottawa symphony orchestra during and after school years of master program. Also, I worked with lots of musicians for chamber music as well.
I spent my childhood working with my mother who was a pianist. She is an astonishing teacher with a serious approach to music. My musical training accelerates when I had my bachelor's degree with the professor. He had logical way of solving problem with violin technique and I have learned everything from him. I also worked with a student recently on an RCM exam and she passed grade 7 in only 2 years and she is now working on grade 9 with me. Perhaps there are short cuts to violin technique!
