One technique that I was not taught was spiccato. I was so happy to learn this technique. It was a new and fun experience. Again in a short amount of time I started to see improvements in my spiccato.
Prior to taking lessons with Heather I did not like to practice. I felt disconnected from the instrument, had no practice routine, and no idea how to practice, which made practicing very frustrating. Now I look forward to practicing, have a practice routine and absolutely have to do it.
It is very therapeutic. Heather’s methods of teaching are unlike any other violin teacher’s methods. She teaches difficult techniques in a fun and relaxing way.
It is because of her that I am a holistic violinist. I was inspired by the way she taught and dealt with her students on a mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional way.
Being her student has allowed me to connect with the violin on a whole new level mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. It has become part of me as if I am one with the instrument. I am truly thankful and grateful for her and SO happy that we met.
Every person from newbie to advanced levels on the violin should take lessons with Heather. You will only grow with her on your violin journey!
For violin teachers I highly recommend watching her videos on Youtube and become a member of her very own online Classical Violin Academy. Your violin students will progress quickly and will love the violin!”
