Fourth-year UC Berkeley student gives violin and music theory lessons in North Berkeley

Methodology

I am a fourth-year engineering student at Cal with a passion for music and violin (10+ years experience)! At Berkeley, I am a course instructor for "Music 198: Chamber Music for Fun", and have played violin with the UC Berkeley Symphony Orchestra as well as in smaller groups such as the University Baroque Ensemble and string quartets/quintets. Back home in Texas, I won regional, state, and national awards with my local school/extracurricular youth orchestras.

I am mainly interested in teaching all levels of amateur violin students. My teaching methodology is simple: have fun and play pieces you enjoy! Instead of technical etudes, I want my students to learn by preparing solo pieces (violin concertos, unaccompanied Bach, etc.) that can challenge them and teach them new skills. From personal experience, I believe that motivation and improvement stem from enjoyment rather than rote memorization and preparation.

Background

I am super interested in sharing my passion and experience in music, so I started giving viola private lessons to my friend this year. Since I'm a violinist at heart, I'm interested in teaching a few violin students!

As an engineer, my formal teaching experience includes: teaching assistant for joint Berkeley-MIT bioengineering course (35 students); teaching assistant for self-paced computer science courses (20 students); computer science, math, and organic chemistry tutoring (10-15 students) at UC Berkeley.
