Violin Lessons - Arlington location
LeeAnne Chenoweth Lawson
LeeAnne Chenoweth has experience teaching private lessons to absolute beginners, as well as advanced students, who she has helped win college music scholarships. In 2007, she became the adjunct violin professor of the University of Dallas. She teaches part-time, and has received students primarily from the Arlington Independent School District, since she lives in north Arlington. Several AISD orchestra directors may serve as references for Ms. Chenoweth if desired. She feels it is important to make the lessons fun, incorporating many duets, as students love to hear harmony and play with others. Playing with others is not only fun, but ensemble work is needed as it is important to learn to listen and play with others; this helps develop counting, rhythm and listening skills. Because of her experience, she has much knowledge about the music literature that is not only best for each level of student, and for perfecting each technical area, but also what literature is most interesting to the students.
Ms. Chenoweth has performed many educational programs for elementary school children. It is vital that they see and hear the instrument played well. Ms. Chenoweth believes in the importance of the arts as part of general education, as learning to practice an instrument independently helps one learn self-discipline, problem-solving, time management, etc. Many studies have found that students who studied musical instruments scored much higher than their non-participating peers on standardized tests, and tend to stay out of trouble and stay in school. All of these studies are easily found on the internet; simply do a search on "music and intelligence." Students are allowed to attend Timeless Concerts events free; one free student with one paying adult. See the"musicians" page to read Ms. Chenoweth's biography.
