Abstract

From being a student to becoming a teacher is a turning point. The role change is so significant that one may need some kind of advice. The rookie teacher may have been well equipped with necessary training and techniques, but it is the fundamental concepts that will help the new teacher start a teaching career without being confused or overwhelmed. This article is written for new violin studio teachers. The author shares his thoughts derived from decades of teaching. In comparison with conservatory teaching, private studio teach­ing features a more flexible structure. Pupils are from various backgrounds with different learning objectives, giving the teacher the freedom of developing his or her own pedagogy, style, and culture.
