Hey guys, you all know life is interesting: no gigs, lots of time home with the kids, and so much problem solving while teaching online. In the several months I've spent navigating this new "normal", I've been able to conduct socially-fulfilling group classes for students anywhere! See below for the current offerings:
"My child appreciates Charlene's upbeat and enthusiastic personality. She gives lots of encouragement along with clear and specific instruction." - Annelies Howell, parent
"The best. Inspires me to play and keep learning. " - Tom Schwab, student
The YFC is a growing group of young fiddlers who have completed Suzuki Violin Book 1 or equivalent and learn traditional and modern folk tunes in a fun social group. We also have a banjo player!
Up-and-coming violinists who are journeying through Suzuki Book 1 are encouraged to join this group to maintain repertoire, learn ensemble skills, and make new friends!
NEW for 2021, I will release lesson videos on tunes and techniques every Friday. We'll address style, ornamentation, learning by ear, and whatever else you want to know. Available on YouTube and Facebook.
I am currently taking new students, although I am limiting it to students who already have had some private instruction. Brand new students must wait until I can physically move you around!
Each week, I give my private students an affirmation to consider as they practice and go about their daily lives. Some students write them in their practice charts or make posters to remind them of these ideas. My hope is that they will assist each student to form a personal credo that they can use as a lifelong guide.
