Ms. Felicia is a great teacher! I was very pleased with my daughter's progress under her instruction. She is very good at meeting the individual needs of her students. We miss you, Ms. Felicia!"

Dr. Rojas is an excellent teacher and violinist! Through her dedication in teaching, I felt I was able to grow technically and musically. This led me to pursue new opportunities and challenges. I still call upon her teachings to this day in all musical scenarios. She is truly wonderful to work with in all possible ways."

Felicia is a very warm and welcoming person yet has a sturdy platform, has a nice way of teaching, and doesn't yell. I personally love the way she teaches, and I'm sure you will too!"

My daughter took lessons with Felicia Rojas for 2 years in Lubbock, Texas. Felicia Rojas is very encouraging tutor. She makes learning where students will enjoy going to her classes but at the same time is honest about letting her know what she needs to work on, and that she has to work. My daughter advanced in her orchestra class while being tutored by Felicia that the last 2 years of her middle school year she achieved the Outstanding Musician Award. With her tutoring my daughter excelled and I would happily recommend Felicia Rojas to others."

Dr. Rojas was my violin teacher for a year. Throughout that year she laced practices with very helpful tips to being a successful violinist, I still use her tips and even give some of them to fellow violinists. Dr. Rojas helped immensely and I accredit her to the level of playing I am at now."

In addition to the violin classes taken at school at her music class. My 9 yr old daughter has been taking violin lessons with Felicia for the last 8-9 months. The results have been nothing shy from amazing. 

At first I just didn't want her to feel like she was behind her classmates whom had already been taking violin lessons at younger ages. But now she has developed a real passion for music and it's all thanks to Felicia. 
She really has a gift for teaching, I'm sure anyone willing to give her a try will be more than satisfied with the results."

About Violin Lessons

As you begin your journey in Suzuki violin, it will be helpful to know a little bit about the Suzuki method. The Suzuki method was developed by Shinichi Suzuki and was based on the premesis that "every child can" - even though Japanese is a difficult language, all Japanese were able to speak it well. The Suzuki method is, therefore, a "mother tongue" approach. Just as we learn to speak our primary language before we begin reading and writing, we must learn to speak and understand music as a language before we learn to read it.

The focus at the beginning of the Suzuki method is on learning the mechanics of the instrument in very small steps, adding a new skill with each new song. Students do not learn to read music until late in the first book or at the beginning of the second book. As the parent of a Suzuki child, you will be his or her teacher at home and therefore must supervise practice. The teacher will assign an appropriate length of time for practice each day, as well as music listening and specific technical aspects to focus on for the week. Please note that the student will not be able to move on from one song to the next until the skills in the current song are mastered.

 

Another aspect of the Suzuki method is positive reinforcement. Some students may become frustrated when unable to complete a task correctly the first time. It is our job to help them understand that no one can do everything correctly the first time - we must repeat the specific spots where we have trouble multiple times. Practice does not make perfect; it makes permanent. If we practice bad habits, they will become an integrated part of our playing and will make advancing more difficult. Our goal is to instill good habits without developing any bad habits which will have to be reversed later. Patience is an important part of learning. You may need to develop a reward system to help your child stick to practicing when things get frustrating for them.

 

On this page you will find materials that will aid you (or your child) in your studies. Please read over the studio policy, fill out the contact information and contract, and print the words for Suzuki book 1. (Lyrics for the songs aid students in memorizing music and understanding musical form. Please take advantage of this by listening to the recordings often and singing these songs with your child.)

Your First Lesson

Students scheduling a first lesson will be required to submit a $25.00 non-refundable deposit in advance. If the student or parent fails to comply with studio policy regulations (ie: no call/no show, cancellation with less than 48 hours' notice, etc), the student or parent will forfeit the full amount of the deposit and will have to pay a new deposit in order to re-schedule. If the total price of the lesson exceeds $25, the remaining balance will be due upon arrival at the first lesson. You may submit your deposit via Paypal using the link below.
