Learn from an Expert Violinist in Florida
I have studied violin and performed for over 40 years.
I grew up and was trained in Russia, Lvov Conservatory of Music under Prof. Samuel Amerman who imparted to me the perfection of Russian violin methods. I have played the violin in various chamber groups and orchestras in Ukraine and Belarussia. In 1956, I moved to Montreal and attended McGill Faculty of Music. I am a recipient of the first gold medal ever given at Concordia University to an evening student for overall proficiency in Arts. I have a BA in Sociology and Social Work (Magna Cum Laude).
I recently attended FAU Department of Music and studied violin with Prof. Rebecca Lautar.
I speak seven languages, amongst them French (spoken in Montreal), and Spanish (which I learned at the University of Barcelona as an international exchange student). I am a mother of two married and successful children.
I came to Florida in 1982 and founded Ruda's Violin Studio in 1987. I have tremendous patience and lifetime experience teaching violin to students of all ages and levels.
My mission is to provide students with support that enables them to realize their full artistic potential and personal excellence.
I aim to cultivate and instill in them the love for music that lasts forever and enriches their lives.
I can teach them how to write, read, and play music.
I can also help them choose the appropriate musical instrument. Very often, parents ask where and how to obtain a violin for their child. I counsel you to rent it first and see if the child likes playing the violin and I direct them to either Sam Ash Music Store or Violin Shop in Boca Raton. I can help them hone their skills and pursue a career.
I teach the Suzuki violin method and combine it with a traditional, conservative approach. Students can learn from me about composers and music history throughout ages.
I believe in creating a nurturing, magical environment where students start appreciating music while having fun.
I am their teacher and their friend. I have given violin lessons to a multitude of students and some of them became professionals.
I was lucky and privileged to have studied with the finest, most wonderful violin teachers. I have benefited from each unique experience and I want to share it with my students by inspiring and guiding them on their road to success.
I utilize the most effective methods in teaching how to play the violin. By using Carl Flesch’s books, I provide my students with knowledge of scales from one to four octaves. Wohlfahrt's studies furnish them with exercises on violin for shifting and vibrato. Finally, Suzuki's numerous books for violin studies allow my students to perfect their intonation.
The above-mentioned solid techniques expand my students' ability to play violin in perfect fashion!
I specialize in a traditional conservative method and combine it with Suzuki.
My curriculum is comprehensive and consists of proven and effective violin teaching methods. I build technical perfection with Whistler, Sitt, and Flesch scales in combination with Wohlfahrt, Maza's etudes, and Suzuki books.
In addition to necessary scales and etudes, I teach familiar, beautiful, and popular pieces by famous composers so that students enjoy their violin lessons and home practice.
I try to motivate students by setting up frequent performances at no additional charge. We have played at Borders book store, got dressed up, and performed at the Renaissance Fair. We made our own CD and experienced playing in a recording studio. We often give back to the community by playing charitable concerts in nursing homes, hospices, and rehabs. It helps students to overcome stage fright. We performed at Menorah Nursing Home and Whitehouse Rehab Center. The residents were very grateful.
