What we'll do

Students have come to us from all walks of life for a variety of reasons. Some are recreating their youth and bringing back a sense of wonder from learning a musical instrument in their past. Some need an artistic outlet to express feelings they somehow can't express with words. Some just like the challenge. Some just want to have a bit of fun. Could this be you? Our style of teaching is friendly, creative, communicative, honest and direct and there are always a lot of laughs! Boutique music studio, Leggy Fish Violin Lessons has offered a fun-filled comfortable environment for adult students to learn how to play violin since 2008. Leggy Fish Violin Lessons has over 20 years of private teaching experience as a private contractor at many music schools, conservatories, and private studios. We take the extra time to really get to know our students; not only your musical aspirations, but to connect with as human beings. Learning can be a daunting process for everyone, but we encourage and help you get through those obstacles. It's all about your complete musical experience. Triple emphasis on the word YOUR. Students can take lessons in Atwater village located in the Greater Los Angeles Area or via Skype/Facetime. No time to come to us? We can travel to you on certain days and times. We offer competitive rates and discounts on prepaid lesson packages. Whether you're interested in classical music, jazz, rock, fiddle, composition or improv, we always find a way to help you value technique, precision, rhythm, beautiful tone, attention to dynamics and phrasing, personal style, knowledge of theory and history. We believe in reading music, but also believe in learning to play by ear. And we believe you need both for bowed stringed instruments. Please note that you must have a violin outfit, an All For Strings Book #1 For Violin, and a 4/4 size shoulder rest prior to the first class. Instrument and accessories are not included in lesson fee. Rentals are highly recommended if you do not own an instrument. Other items you may wish to pick up are a fold up music stand and tuner/metronome for keeping your instrument in tune. *** Please send me a private message with your violin experience level ( can be from complete beginner to advanced level) so that I can place you in the right class. With love, Nancy
