Violin teacher for 7 year old? (Berkeley area)
I’m looking for a violin teacher for my 7-year old. We’ve been going to a very exacting teacher (Suzuki method) and I don’t think it’s quite the right fit for him. Despite having a lot of enthusiasm and a positive attitude, I think their particular teaching style is killing his spirit and interest. He’s willing to practice and tries his best, but I think he needs someone more warm, positive, and encouraging - he’s held back tears during lessons because he feels bad that he can’t get things up to the expected standard.
Suzuki or traditional would be preferred, but open to other styles, as long as the teacher is good with younger children.
Thank you so much!
