The beautiful sound of the violin

Are you fascinated by the beautiful sound of the violin, wondering if you could play all those beautiful melodies? Looking for motivation and inspiration to awake the artist in you? I am Berta Mariana, methodical, patient and enthusiastic Utrecht based violin teacher. I love to guide you in this adventure! 

Violin and Children!

If all parents would know how much music lessons can do for their child! How learning music can improve their skills in math, memorisation, and listening. How playing an instrument also helps young brains to develop, motor skills and coordination. My one-on-one lessons for children are fun and wel structured. They learn to read music, basic music theory, and to play their first easy songs and duo pieces!

Main Goal

We will work on developing a good technique, always in a tension-free manner, focusing on tone production, dexterity of fingers, good intonation and good posture. Technique and music go hand-by-hand. You will be playing nice music and perhaps you even have some tunes on a wish list...?

Violin Lessons - Beginners

You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with me!

Peronalised Lessons

Based upon your own wishes and goals I will elaborate a plan for the lessons. We will be focusing on learning and developing your playing step by step in a calm, methodic and healthy way, making you feel each day more comfortable and confident with it! As we go on, we will approach different technical aspects, so that you keep always improving your skills and your level, but don't be scared: we will do it always through beautiful and fun music! 

Body Awareness

Learn how to feel comfortable with the violin to completely enjoy the music you play! By being a Yoga and Alexander Technique lover, I believe that healthy posture and body awareness contribute enormously to become a good player. I will help you to develop a comfortable and natural posture, to allow you to improve your general body posture, violin playing and well being.

Let's play together! 

Playing together is very important to develop your sound, intonation and rhythmic skills. Enjoy your creative and artistic growth! Besides having a wonderful time sharing beautiful music together, this will give you a lot of knowledge, in case someday you would like to join an amateur orchestra or an ensemble, you will be ready!  

When and Where 

In order to make sure you can easily introduce the violin lessons on your agenda, the location, time and frequency of the lessons are completely adjustable to what fits you best. Enjoy maximum flexibility with a 10 lesson card. The one-on-one lessons can be given in the comfort of your own home or in my teaching room in Utrecht.
