Professional bowing technique and tone creation on the violin are learnable skills. My passion is to teach YOU exactly how, step by step.Zlata Brouwer
Zlata M A Brouwer MSc BMus is a classically trained, conservatory graduated violinist and well known violin teacher living in the Netherlands.
I currently play and perform as a first violinist in a string quartet and a professional string orchestra. I have been in a professional violin-piano duo and string trio for years including a CD recording and TV appearance.
I have a special interest in teaching. I own a violin studio with four teachers and a violin shop. I have created many method books and video courses for Violin Lounge TV and the Violin Lounge Academy.
I graduated at the Schumann Akademie in Holland as a violinist and teacher (BMus) and earned the highest possible grade in violin methodology at the Utrecht Conservatory.
Borrow my 10.000 hours of practicing and performing on the violin! I offer you my professional education as a violinist and teacher, over 20 years of private lessons, over 10 years experience in teaching and share everything I did to develop myself, my violin playing and my teaching in Violin Lounge TV and the Violin Lounge Academy.
My violin teaching style…
In my violin lessons I seamlessly combine heart-centered musicality with hard-core technique, specializing in creating a beautiful tone on the violin and bowing technique, making things simple and doable, with clear explanations, step by step.
I love to analyze your playing and give you tailored feedback and clear practice instructions, so you know exactly how to improve your playing.
I demystify classical violin technique using modern technique. The seamless and strong combination of online courses with video, e-books etc, online community, live online lessons, personal practice plans and video exchange can boost you to the next level in your violin playing.
You have 24/7 constant guidance and structure and learn in different ways simultaneously.
My goal is that you enjoy happy practicing and beautiful playing.
