Violin Lessons Children

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.

Playful Violin Methode

We use playful modern tuition materials, easy popular or classical songs and fun exercises. Step by step your child develops a solid musical basis. Fun in music comes first and every lesson we play together some nice little duets!

More Advanced Violinists

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 beautiful tone, staccato, spiccato, legato and vibrato. Depending on your musical preferences you'll be playing classical, baroque, contemporary music, romantic sonatas and concertos or popular music styles. 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.

Baroque Violin

Besides modern violin and experience in performing pop and folk music, I specialised also in baroque violin and love to share my passion for historical context and baroque music with you.

Elke les een genot!

Tomasz is een gepassioneerde violist en zijn enthousiasme werkt aanstekelijk. De basis van de lessen is muziek maken, techniek is daarbij helpend en wordt aangeleerd om meer muzikaal te kunnen spelen. Door gebruik te maken van mooie metaforen kan Tomasz je perfect duidelijk maken wat je moet doen. Door zijn vrolijkheid en positieve houding is elke les een genot!

We recommend Tomasz!

Our daughter had been playing the the violin for six years when she first started playing with Tomasz. She has been taking individual violin classes with him for two years now. During this time she has significantly developed her skills, but perhaps more importantly, her motivation and curiosity in the instrument.Tomasz has a genuine love for music. He communicates easily with our daughter, is patient and adapts to the inevitable ups and downs of individual lessons. Tomasz's positive attitude and patience, together with his ability to select appropriate pieces without overwhelming the student, have been extremely helpful in furthering our daughter's interest in playing the violin. Finally, we really appreciate the efforts Tomas regularly takes to bring his students together for an informal concert afternoon. We highly recommend him as a teacher.

Tomasz is a friendly teacher!

Tomasz Plusa is a friendly and committed teacher. Rather than following a strict agenda he changes the learning program's style, tempo and level to suit the individual student's needs. Tomasz has mastery over different styles and genres of music, which makes the lessons versatile and dynamic. Since he gives students a lot of freedom where it comes to picking pieces you never have to worry that you won't get to play your favorite music. Tomasz is an all-rounder with talent and passion for both playing and teaching violin. I would recommend him to everyone.

Perfect Teacher!

Since I came to the Netherlands in 2017, I started to learn violin with Tomasz. Although I have been playing modern violin for fifteen years, Tomasz is the most special teacher I have ever met, and also the enlightenment teacher of my Baroque violin. I still remember the first lesson we started learning Bach's chaconne, rather than only focusing on technique improvement, he first taught me lots of basic knowledge on baroque music form and specifically in this piece: what is chaconne, what is the basso continuo and melody line in this piece, how to play the chords in a correct and historical way, etc. He also demonstrated on his baroque violin and that open me up a totally new world: a warmer, more active, and full of emotion and vitality voice that I have never heard before. Now I have already switch to baroque violin and started from zero, with the detailed and patient help by Tomasz. Sometimes he combined the baroque violin playing with history background, visualized the music style by painting, or other beautiful metaphors. He is a passionate and perfectionist musician and teacher. He said that playing the violin is like making a sculpture. Only crafted with great care and precision can complete a piece of artwork. All in all, Tomasz's violin lessons have benefited me a lot from both playing technique and musicianship.

Passionate Violin Teacher

Tomasz is a passionate teacher who expects his students to achieve their maximum. He motivates them to work hard and not to give up. What I appreciate the most is that he could match the music they learn with the character of a child. He has been teaching my children for three years now. He helped my son discover his passion and talent for playing folk music. Thanks to Tomasz my son enjoys practicing and often plays for pleasure in his free time.

Fun homework

Tomasz is a very good teacher, kind and always happy. He gives fun homework like making compositions. He is building the interest in music.

Genuine enthusiasm!

We wholeheartedly recommend Tomasz Alexander Plusa as a talented violin teacher and practicing musician. During our year abroad, Tomasz masterfully taught our daughter how to improve her technique and approach to playing the violin by sharing his real-world experience and passion for both music in general and this instrument in particular. Tomasz skillfully communicated the importance of discipline in practice without being preachy or condescending. Instead, he inspired improvement through genuine enthusiasm, demonstration, and useful expert tips. Thank you Tomasz and Vivaldi!

Building the interest in music

Tomasz Aleksander Plusa is introducing our 8-years old son Alek into the world of violin. The lessons are fun as Tomasz not only concentrates on pure technical aspects of playing, but also inspires to discover the beauty of classical music. He masters in addressing to children in order to keep their attention and engagement. We do recommend him as an excellent teacher.

Vriendelijke vioolleraar in Den Haag!

Jarenlang had mijn viool stil gelegen. Ik besloot weer vioolles te nemen. Op internet op zoek naar een viool leraar, koos ik Tomasz, vanwege zijn vriendelijke uitstraling. En dat is hij...heel vriendelijk. Tomasz heeft van zijn passie zijn vak gemaakt en weet dat over te brengen. De muziek zit tussen de noten. Ik ervaar Tomasz als heel oprecht en dat geeft een extraatje aan de vioolles. Dankbaar dat ik bij hem terecht ben gekomen!

Ik voelde me erbij goed ondersteund en begrepen.Zijn enthousiasme voor muziek en viool is zeer stimulerend en zijn passie helpt de student de beste uit zichzelf naar bovente halen. Zelfs als ik vanaf 0 viool en muziek ervaring begonnen ben, na een klein jaartje kon ik al een klassieke stukjes te spelen.De technische oefeningen worden goed ingezet naar behoefte en afgewisseld met plezierige oefeningen in je eigen muziekvoorkeur. Kortom een super leuke ervaring.
