Preparing to make great music is difficult, but ESOM students like it. Esom's Violin Department provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date string instruction available anywhere. We offer individualized violin education, as well as professional instructors who are experts in the field, course work specifically geared to improve your talents and abilities, and a variety of performing opportunities.
What we teach
Music Theory – Students will cover a variety of music theory topics during their violin classes. The staff, clefs, note names, rhythms, rests, intervals, meter and time signatures, key signatures, and dynamics are the first things we teach. Scales and chords (harmony), melodies, phrases, and musical forms will all be covered. Our violin lessons are carefully crafted to cover everything from the most basic scales to the most complex notation, whether you are a complete beginner or already know a lot about music theory.
Sight Reading – Our exercises are designed to help students improve their short-term musical memory so that they can read ahead while playing a piece and perform it correctly when they reach to that area. Highly accomplished musicians can frequently sight-read silently, which means they can look at printed music and hear it in their thoughts without having to play or sing it. Sight-reading ability is necessary of all musicians since it makes learning new compositions more easier and faster. As a result, students are more likely to attempt to learn new pieces of music on their own, resulting in better and more well-rounded performers.
Collaboration – These abilities include being able to play at the same tempo and style as others without the use of a metronome or conductor, listening to multiple musical lines at once, and expressing thoughts and making decisions with another musician. Playing chamber music allows a student to become more well-rounded and self-sufficient. Students also learn problem-solving and communication skills, both of which are essential for being a successful musician.
Improvisation – Learning to improvise needs a thorough understanding of music theory, excellent listening skills, and the ability to express oneself impulsively. It's a fun and unique method to play the violin, as well as a terrific opportunity to explore various musical genres including pop, jazz, and folk music. Students will learn how to improvise over chords and generate their own musical ideas, which they will be able to enunciate on the violin, in our violin courses.
Technique – Students can achieve their musical and artistic goals on the instrument if they have solid technique from the start.
- The ability to communicate well in English is required.
