Our Violin department is guided by Mr Antoine Courivaud. Achieving a lot at such from young age, Mr Courivaud has been teaching children and adults of all ages. One of the main advantages of being a Violin teacher is that during a University Degree you have to take a second instrument which can reflect and will develop the Violin playing. The Violin as an instrument has many advantages and also it is easy to transport. It can help to develop the creative abilities, boosts the confidence and reduces the stress.
Even if you don’t start early, anyone can learn to play the violin, regardless of the age. In fact, many teens look to broaden their skills and enhance their college applications with a variety of extra-curricular activities.
A SENSE OF BELONGING
Many adolescents benefit from learning the violin because of the social belonging it provides. Playing in an orchestra requires group coordination, attention and a dress code (to present a uniform appearance to the audience), which can be a vast relief from the constant pressures and angst of being a teenager.
AN EMOTIONAL OUTLET
Playing the violin offers the opportunity to release your feelings, something that teens can sometimes find very difficult to do in a constructive manner.
Concerts and contests provide opportunities for achievement and physical benefits of playing the violin are the same as for younger children. Better posture, stronger upper body strength and improved motor skills are engendered through practice. The physical exertion is lessened through proper body placement.
Violin helps with lower levels of depression, anxiety, and other stress related health problems. Playing the violin is an excellent stress reliever and a great way to enlarge your social circle.
Today’s sedentary lifestyle leaves many adults with unhealthy spines and terrible, pain-inducing posture. Playing the violin calls for exemplary posture. Learning how to stand properly while playing can translate to improved posture all the time.
The mental, emotional, and physical benefits of playing the violin are definitely worth the time and effort it takes to learn this instrument. And with the right equipment, you can start experiencing those benefits even faster!
