Professional Violinist with 13 years of experience giving Online Violin Lessons : Brendan Rocha

Methodology

As a teacher, Brendan draws on his practical gigging experience as well as some of his professional training (especially in the music theory department) in lessons. Brendan enjoys taking on beginners where he focuses on ear training with games and popular songs and learning to read music. Equally, he takes on more experienced players that want to get into the nitty-gritty of a specific genre of music (syncopation, articulation, phrasing, harmony and performance techniques, etc.)

Brendan has successfully, with merit, completed the Grade 8 certification in Violin Performance from Trinity College London and will be training his pupils to appear for these certifications with a thorough curriculum.
Brendan takes in the interests of his students, the music they listen to, and what they may want to play on the violin. Being fluent in most genres of music, be like Western Classical, Bollywood, Jazz, or RnB, Brendan can mold a curriculum specifically in the interests of his pupil.

Apart from the violin, he also plays the guitar and keyboards, often accompanying his students while learning pieces making lessons more fun and interactive.

Brendan follows The Eta Cohen Method of Violin Training, which includes emphasis on reading Sheet music, Violin Technique, Rhythmical Variations, and Ear Training. This Method is widely followed in the UK. The method is based around the idea of teaching the violin incrementally, covering one new idea at a time. Breaking down difficult technical tasks and reconstructing them in easy stages.

I have been taking violin lessons from Brendan over the past year. He has extensive knowledge and practical experience in the field of classical music and gave me the time to comprehend what was being taught. Additionally, he was able to overcome any challenges that came along the course of online learning, thus making virtual lessons a smooth process. He offers constructive feedback and guidance in a patient manner and has encouraged me to learn, practice and appreciate the art of playing the violin!

I’ve had the immense pleasure of learning the violin under Brendan. His impeccable approach to breaking down concepts like technique and intonation helped me get a grasp of the instrument in no time. Despite having taken lessons online, I had no issues in understanding the above mentioned concepts because of how well they were structured and broken down into graspable sections. I highly recommend him to other aspiring students.
