Ann Dunn. Violin Lessons

Santa Monica. Westside Los Angeles

Ann Dunn is an experienced concert violinist. She has been teaching beginning and advanced students, children and adults, for over 20 years in Santa Monica and Westside Los Angeles.

I am always gratified when a student makes violin his or her life’s work, but I strongly feel there are a lot of reasons to study a musical instrument besides being a professional. The single most important reason is entering the magical realm of music. Playing an instrument is different from anything else you do. It is a completely new way of looking at the world. I have many busy adult students who take lessons just for one reason: it is a beautiful escape.

ViolinI find the benefits of learning violin to be:
Mental activity.
Fine motor coordination
A greater love for music

My daughter, Miranda, has been taking violin lessons from Ann ever since she was in third grade. She is now about to enter eighth grade and is playing beautifully, thanks to Ann’s experienced hand. Ann is constantly challenging Miranda with ever-harder material, but also knows how to coach her through the inevitable bumps along th4e way. I would recommend Ann to any parent who wants their child to learn the violin, whether from the ground up or at an advanced level.
