In 2012 I started the violin school
Mirjam Charas Violin Academy AB in Stockholm with the mission to educate young people between the ages of 5-18 in a comprehensive musical education program with a focus on the violin.
Values and Method
My pedagogy is based on the musical knowledge and traditions of Mimi Zweig who has developed programs influenced by Shinichi Suzuki, Paul Rolland, Tadeusz Wronski, Janos Starker and Josef Gingold.
A Non-Judgmental Environment
In order for students to develop most efficiently, a non-judgmental environment is established where mistakes are seen as opportunities to learn. The teacher and student view mistakes in a neutral way; they are neither good nor bad, simply pieces of information. Breaking down each problem to the simplest form and formulating a solution allows the student to learn quickly and have a good time along the way.
Parents are a very important component in the learning process of young children beginning to play the violin. Parents attend all the lessons, take notes and practice daily with the child at home. As the child develops and becomes more independent, the role of the parent will diminish.
The musical development of the child is directly proportional to the level of investment of time and support the parents are willing to make. A child’s progress and ability to express himself/herself musically is an exciting journey and the love for music will always enhance their life, regardless of what they chose to do.
Benefits of Playing the Violin
An understanding of violin skills and musical structure have proven to be extremely beneficial for a child’s education in general. Studying the violin teaches discipline, persistence, curiosity, self-esteem and excellence.
