Have you completed your music journey and finally achieved your violin diploma? Congratulations! If you love playing the violin and would like it to be your career, you have two choices- be a violinist or a violin teacher.
For those whom love to perform on the stage and impress the audience, the role of a violinist would suit you. However, those whom love to help others and share their knowledge would probably prefer being a violin teacher. A good violin teacher needs to be patient, caring and able to explain and teach in detail.

- Able to learn from students.
- Flexible timings and locations.
- Make friends with parents and students.
- Share your knowledge and teach your students.
- Able to teach something you love to do.
