Teacher Christopher has an ATCL Diploma in Violin and in an experienced teacher having taught in childcare centres and privately. He picked up the violin since 10, played in string ensembles and orchestras, and progressively took exams from age 14 to 21. His teachings emphasizes on techniques through studies and scales and how to apply them to any pieces. He not only teaches classical violin, but also korean pop, celtic country and musical hits.
His teaching methodology is quoted from him as below:
"The coaching style of violin playing that I apply mostly is 'playing by ear' (also known as 'Suzuki method') in an environment that foster music interpretation, recognition and music sight-reading. I do have my own music compositions, and violin playing techniques and studies 'scales' (customise 'skills' for students playing), where I use in conjunction with the coaching methods on a continual improvement progression. Elaborating on one of my many teaching methods, is an easy and simple way to get students understanding music interpretation 'fast' and playing violin joyfully.
As for the younger ones aged 4-6 years old (case by case), a different set of music-note reading (easier to comprehend) is used just so they can focus more on playing posture and technique. This is to prepare them whenever they are ready into persusing their violin performance when they grow up."
