Learn and Practice the Violin like a Pro with Jinny Lee

For the past 13 years, Jinny has been focused on sharing her knowledge and passion for classical music with the next generation of violinists.

Through private music lessons held via her on and offline studio, she works with 15-20 students at a time, helping violinists of all ages master foundational violin skills and rediscover the beauty and joy of all kinds of music.

“Learning to play an instrument is an incredible gift that can become a lifelong passion. From our very first session together, I will help you fall in love with the violin and experience the beauty of nature through music.

Master Professional Techniques

The secret to learning and enjoying the violin is understanding your body mechanism. The magic starts when you recognize how your body muscles work instinctively, trust the movements, and no longer need to worry about the physical aspects of playing. Not only will this help you create beautiful music, but it will also help alleviate physical pain related to improper technique.

To put you on the path to success, Jinny’s lessons are designed to help students practice consciously and master foundational skills. You will learn how to:

  • Solve technical problems

  • Develop smart ways to practice

  • Express your musical ideas

And more.

FOUNDATION

It starts from how you stand up to hold the violin and the bow. In order to control your delicate movements while playing the violin, we have to understand the body mechanics.

BOWING TECHNIQUE

Using proper bowing technique is like having a magic stick. You can express anything with music. We should understand how to control the bow depending on what kind of sounds we want.

LEFT HAND TECHNIQUE

Even though left hand and bowing techniques are related, we will take care of the left hand technique first. You will be notified to practice tricky parts separately in each music piece.

PLAY MUSICALLY

With all the techniques we have learned, it is time to make music more colorful! We will learn how to make phrasings and different style of sounds.

I am a violin pedagogue and performer based in North California, United States. In this course, you will do daily assignments I created, giving you an effective way to approach practice by understanding body mechanisms and making music naturally. For example, most beginners think that it is impossible to avoid squeaky sounds on the violin. However, I have realized that anyone, whether students have musical talent or not at any age, can understand how we should use certain parts of muscles for specific reasons. Thirteen years of teaching experience have taught me to apply three principal concepts for students to be better violin players: playing physically at ease, visualizing sound, and playing musically.

 

The Suzuki method is an educational system that students can learn and memorize music. Although we are using the Suzuki Book, I am not focused on only the Suzuki Method. From age 6 to adults are capable of understanding the body mechanisms. In my assignments in every session, you will learn how to practice, what to think about, and how to avoid common mistakes people make. It will help you to apply for future learning effectively.

 

You will learn 17 songs in A major, D major, and G major in this book. Moreover, you will be able to learn techniques and apply them to other pieces. By the end of the course, you will have concepts of how you can consciously practice like professionals do and get comfortable with playing music in the first position.
