Dunja Lavrova's message to future students:

"I have always been greatly fascinated by violin and methods of teaching how to play it, and believe that each student should have their lesson tailor-made for them in order to fulfil their full potential.
I always listen to what my students want first from their lessons and then work out the best and most efficient way to get there.
When I help my students achieve their best results, I combine several teaching techniques/schools of violin playing.
I have an individual approach towards each of my students, depending on their abilities and goals.
I help my students by showing them how to achieve maximum results through appropriate way of practising and time-management, coaching them various performing techniques, helping with audition behavior and stage presence, helping to deal with anxiety, stage fright and much more.
I teach my students independence, organisation and responsibility.

During my lessons you will learn that:

- “It's always "quality over quantity.”
- “I am here to help you reach your goal.”
- “Ultimately, it’s up to you to take responsibility and make progress, using the information I have given you.”
- “Anything I will suggest to you during lessons is what I believe are STEPS towards YOUR goal.”
- “You will need to practise, but for yourself and not for me and not anyone else. You will need to remember the goal you have set for YOURSELVES.”
- “Fear is natural, everyone is afraid of something - it’s what you make of it that matters.”
- “Failure is part of a journey, don’t let it stop you on your tracks. Failure teaches us how to move forwards.”
- “I am here for you."

I would love to give you a FREE 20-mins long consultation where we can work out how I can help you with reaching your goals on the violin!”
