Violin Instruction – Nova Wong

Nova Wong
M.Mus.(Indiana University); B.A. (CUHK);
Pro. Dip. (HKAPA); ATCL; AMusTCL

“…she has a wide knowledge, not only for violin playing but of the skills essential

to teach at an extremely high standard. She has a fine balance of demanding that high standard of playing from her students, but also of encouraging her students in a very positive way. “As a retired concert pianist, teacher of piano pedagogy and performance at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto, and senior examiner of pedagogy and performance, I am well aware of the art of teaching any musical subject…

“I have no hesitation in recommending her … She is a person of great integrity, highly organized, and sincerely motivated in her teaching.”

– Ms. Daryl Irvine, Ontario, Canada.

“When I think of your teaching style with Brigid the main thing that comes to mind is your gentle manner and disposition in dealing with a young student. I appreciated how you would show them the right way and a wrong way to do something and have them actually see what the difference was rather than simply telling them. I also liked that you often had the children lay their hand on top of yours so they could get a feel for what the technique and rhythm should be like.
“I appreciated that you paid great attention to detail and didn’t let them get away with playing things incorrectly. You had high expectations for their ability and technique, but you still had the patience for them that a 5-year-old demands with their short attention span. Brigid enjoyed your pleasant disposition which made the lesson a relaxed and comfortable setting and not something that made her feel intimidated or uncomfortable.”

– Mrs. Martina Green, Kingston, Ontario

Starting her teaching career since 1998, Ms Wong is a sought after violin instructor. Among her students are winners in festivals and competitions, and have high standings in examinations. Ms Wong’s abilities to befriend with her students in all ages, to capture their attention, and to develop their interests make the abstract violin techniques simple.
