My teacher

April 7, 2009 at 4:17 AM

I study violin at an institute called centro cultural Danushe Hlavenka Icaza, this is where my journey with the violin started. The owner of the institute is my teacher her name is Danushe Hlavenka, some people may find it weird but her main instrument is the cello and she is also very good at piano. She studied college in prague she specialized in cello but she also studied how to teach violin. I really like the way she teaches me, she is very patient answers all of my questions and is very open to listen my opinion. I 'm really glad to have her as my teacher but that will change for a while. She is moving for a while because her husband got a new job and she doesn't want her children to be away from their father. I will keep studying on the same institute but with another teacher, the director of the symphony orchestra higly recommended her. She is a violin student that will graduate this year she plays in an orchestra, so I will be learning a lot from her but I will miss my teacher but she told me tha she will come very often and that if we need something we can call her, so we will keep in touch. You know... the weird thing is that i was going to write a blog about my personal experience and opinion about shoulder rests..... Well i guess it will have to wait.
