Welcome to Tashiro Violin School!
Education has always been a huge passion for me. I am a trained teacher of Suzuki Method, and for the past ten years, I have been teaching violin and viola to students of all levels and ages. My students have been accepted into highly competitive programs such as the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra and Midwest Young Artists Conservatory.
As a former Suzuki student since age of 4 myself, I find Suzuki method the most suitable and practical way to learn who to play the violin especially for young students.
Suzuki method is an internationally known teaching philosophy created by a Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki. He realized the implications of the fact that children the world over learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.
Dr. Suzuki’s goal was not simply to develop professional musicians, but to nurture loving human beings and help develop each child’s character through the study of music.
For advanced students and adult students, I take more traditional approach by using scale/etude books, and learning pieces outside of Suzuki books. I am enthusiastic about helping each student achieve their own goals.
I believe that studying violin gives numerous benefits to us. It teaches us importance of repetition, discipline, patience, thinking analytically, and concentration. Last but not least, music enriches our lives!
Lessons are typically once a week from 30 minutes to one hour at a studio in North Center (1801 W Belle Plaine Ave) or virtually. Students have an opportunity to perform at a student recital at least twice a year.
