Hi GAboy, I just wanted to let you know, in case you didn’t already know, private lesson via video conferencing on Skype are offered here at ViolinTutorPro.com. You can check all the available teachers here: http://www.violintutorpro.com/private-lessons/ And I think you can try it out with the first lesson for free!

I’m not on that list, because I tried Skype with a student of mine a couple years ago and was concerned about the tone. I don’t know if it was the connection or the computer but it was very poor and so distracting I didn’t want to do it again. I discussed this with Michael and he said the tech has improved quite a bit over the last couple of years. I think I need to exert more effort to test my webcam and get used to Skype. Possibly invest in some mic or some other equipment that allows a true violin tone production. I’ve been putting that off, but it’s on my to do list.

There are several teachers listed on the Private Lessons page, including Michael Sanchez. I’m pretty sure you can get a first free lesson with most of them.
