Teaches: ,

Joel Bootsma teaches classical violin and viola using the SUZUKI method.

“The right time to start a particular student on an instrument is not measurable in years, but in attitude and character.”

Suzuki method breaks down playing skills into small manageable steps to build a solid foundation on which to build all subsequent skills.

Joel has been teaching music for many years. Initially in public schools: grades 1 – 12 general music, band, jazz band and choir. Joel opened his home studio full-time in the fall of 2007.

He has also conducted band and orchestra. He is committed to developing his teaching skills through the Suzuki Association of Ontario. Private lessons, group class and ensemble instruction are all offered at Red Door String Studio.
