Lilia teaches viola and violin both children and adults. She has experience already 5 years in which she has been teaching more than 40 students at age from 4 to 66 years.  The goal of the lessons is to provide high quality education in a pleasant and welcoming way and to help students of any age to play, enjoy and learn about music. 

For each student Lilia creates an individual development plan, using an effective variety of musical teaching techniques to make the violin lesson productive, fun and enjoyable. 

The lessons are mostly focused on building good violin technique and include also music theory and basics of solfeggio and music harmony, as Lilia believes this knowledge improves the quality of playing and the understanding of music. 

The violin / viola lessons take place in Vienna’s first district (near Schwedenplatz) or conveniently at the home of the student.

"Lilia is always kind and friendly with her students, encouraging and challenging for more success. She has good contact with students and it stimulates children's interest in learning to play the instrument. Our daughters are always happy to meet their teacher. They are not afraid to make mistakes - Lilia teaches them not to give up and always to keep alive the joy from playing the instrument"

"With her calm and always friendly manner, Lilia creates a relaxed atmosphere in which children find it easy to concentrate fully on the lesson. The violin lessons are well structured and you will learn quickly. I would particularly like to emphasize that Lilia can also accompany on the piano! I can only recommend Lilia if you are looking for a reliable, committed violin teacher who responds to the individual requirements of a student and offers well-founded, well thought-out lessons.
