Marketa - Your violin bff

Hi Everyone,

Bff is cool teenager talk for Best Friend Forever; I should know – two of my five kids are teenagers and I’ve been a high school teacher in Melbourne Australia for more years than I care to count.

Although I may not be a cool teenager myself, I do know an awful lot about teaching, learning and playing the violin. 

I have a very specific and successful method of teaching the violin and I’ve reached the stage where I want to help people all over the world achieve their violin journey dreams!

Take a look around my site and if you have any questions or specific techniques you’d like me to help you with, don’t hesitate to drop me a line either through the comment section of a post or via facebook or instagram.

Don’t forget that you can also check out all my videos on youtube!
