Enjoy playing the violin!
Have you played the violin before and do you want to take it up again after a break? Looking for a patient, motivating and enthusiastic violin teacher for yourself or for your child? Want to dive into baroque repertoire on period instruments? My name is Tomasz Plusa. I'm an experienced and enthusiastic violin teacher in The Hague and love to share my passion for music with both children and adults, beginner to advanced.
Fun in music!
My lessons offer a cosy atmosphere, personal attention and instructions tailored to your individual needs. It is extremely important to me that the initial love and excitement that comes with starting an instrument is maintained and nourished throughout the lessons.
Violin Lessons at Your Home
You're welcome in my home studio in The Hague/Rijswijk, but the lessons can also be given at your own home. The 10 lesson card offers maximum flexibility!
We use playful learning methods and easy songs in a positive and encouraging learning environment. Learn basic technique, reading music, relaxed posture, musical skills in a broader scale and you'll learn a natural approach to violin playing.
Recent studies have shown that the earlier music instruction is begun, the better. Most agree that beginning violin training before the age of seven offers the most definitive results.
We use playful modern tuition materials, easy songs and fun exercises. Step by step we create a solid musical basis. Fun in music comes first and every lesson we play together some nice little duets! Sign up for a trial lesson!
Of course you want to learn to play the violin with a good technique and a relaxed posture. It is essential, but it is only the basis... Real music making comes when you can use this basis to express your own interpretation and feelings!
What to expect
With personalised exercises, etudes, scales and your favourite music you'll develop a beautyful tone, staccato, spiccato, legato and vibrato. Depending on your musical preferences you'll be playing baroque, classical, romantic, contemporary sonatas and concertos.
Want to learn play baroque music in an authentic way? I specialised in baroque violin and love to share my passion for historical context and baroque music with you.
