violin teacher in Boston for my son
I am planning my 3 month visit to MIT in the begining of 2019. I hope to live as close as possible to the labs. May be even on campus.
So, i will need a violin teacher for my son for that period, preferably nearby.
Can you please recommend me someone, or a place where to look.
Thanks in advance
Check with Johnson Strings ( https://www.johnsonstring.com ) they may have a listing of area teachers.
3 months is a tricky length of time. Is it over the summer, or during the school year?
You could check with the Longy School of Music in Cambridge.
I think they got out of the business of teaching kids after they were swallowed up by Bard College. A lot of teachers had to find other homes.
My son is 5, will be 6 next year. He speaks fluently english. His english better than mine))) we live in europe now, he follows russian program, compleating the first grade.
Seek teachers that are great with beginning students, since your son is a young beginner and he's certainly not going to advance beyond a beginner level in 3 months. Teachers of advanced students often don't enjoy working with beginners, and might or might not enjoy working with intermediate-level students, and they might not be good at either teaching at the non-advanced level or teaching young students.
Yup! There's a few I know personally (and I've been taught by them):
Note that most community music schools normally charge by the semester, so if you're only in the country for 3 months, you will be paying for a bunch of time you're not present.
Thanks for info and advice.
Contact Bayla Keyes at Boston College. She is great with kids and has a delightful sense of humor.
One note of caution to the OP: every private lesson teacher I know, including myself, has been the recipient of scam emails that purport to be from a parent (usually foreign) seeking a private teacher for his child for a short term while the parent is visiting the city on business. If you don't want your email inquiries to be deleted, please put as much specific information in them as you can--your child's name, age, instrument, pieces currently being studied, etc. And do not, repeat DO NOT try to set up some sort of pay in advance scheme. Ask the teacher how s/he would prefer to be paid. It might not hurt even to acknowledge up front how similar your actual situation is to a known scam.
Thanks for the advice. I did not know, that something like this exist. People become more and more creative.
