Online violin lessons are becoming more and more popular these days as they offer real convenience for both the student and the teacher. Dunja has a vast experience of teaching online, and you can read the feedback from her online students below:
Tosin Ajimobi, age 24:
"I've been studying with Dunja for 2 years. I find her to be a very thorough teacher, you'll progress quickly because she has very high standards and she tries to instil those in you too.
More recently we've been having our lessons over Skype and I've been pleased at how well it's turned out. She gives careful instructions so that even though you aren't in the same room, you're still able to achieve the correct positioning, and she can always hear some things even if you can't!
She definitely knows what she is talking about and has great advice on practising, which I've been able to take into other areas of my life. I've been very happy with my progress in the past 2 years."
Shammy Rahim, father of Mehnaz (aged 13) and Neha (aged 11):
"Being working parents, one of the major challenges we have, is to manage our working hours so that we can take our kids to lessons. Not living in city make things even more worse. That’s when we started thinking about an alternative solution. It didn't take us much time to realise that it’s possible to do violin lessons online. When we came across Dunja, we were so curious to find out how this will work. Dunja took the trial lesson so calmly and very well organised . To our amazement we even forgot that its an online lesson. From then we never looked back, kids now take special interest to perfect their lessons. I am very pleased we found violin lessons online. Dunja is a very focused, result oriented and true professional violinist who have a very natural talent to play & teach violin and make a positive impact to your kids interest in violin. I would recommend her without even thinking."
Francesca Gliubich, mother of Silvia (aged 14):
"I recently came across Dunja’s debut solo album and was very impressed. Immediately, I contacted her to ask whether she would be willing to teach to my daughter.
Dunja’s approach to teaching reveals her passion for technical precision, which is the key to being able extract the best sound out of your instrument in order to then achieve musical freedom.
Skype lessons with Dunja are not any different from lessons in person, as she can pick up any imperfection and point it out in a constructive, positive manner. Most importantly, she will immediately suggest the perfect exercise to help correct it. Dunja won my daughter’s trust as mentor within one hour!"
Dunja Lavrova's message to future students:
"I have always been greatly interested in all aspects of teaching and believe that each student should have a lesson taylor-made for them in order to progress. I combine several teaching techniques/schools of violin playing to achieve results. I have an individual approach towards each of my students, depending on their abilities. I will always help my students fulfill their potential.
I have a vast experience of performance ranging from solo to orchestra and chamber music, as well as experience in competitions, orchestral auditions and CD recording. I will be able to assist my students with preparation for any of the above mentioned and more.
I will take my students further than just learning the notes on the page, showing them how to achieve maximum results through appropriate way of practising, coaching them various performing techniques, helping with audition behavior and stage presence, helping to deal with anxiety, stage fright and more.
I will be just as happy to taylor-make a fun lesson for a beginner who simply wants to play violin/viola or piano as a hobby."
