WHY CHOOSE US?

L E S S O N S  &  C L A S S E S

The Sesek String Studio uses a precise 10 Level system so that proper facility and technique are ensured every step of the way. This includes the Sassmannshaus Method of violin teaching for beginners continuing with appropriate  selected pieces, traditional etudes and exercises.  Students and parents know EXACTLY what benchmarks are required to achieve the next level of playing.

 

 Lessons and classes are divided amongst the strengths of the instructors for the best possible results.

VIOLIN LESSONS

Typically regarded as the lead voice of the orchestra, the violin is a bright and brilliant instrument. The smallest member of the string family, it is similar to a "soprano" voice type and has a rich history. Lessons are offered at once or twice a week intervals.

Mr. Ervin Luka Sešek

All levels

 

Dr. Amber Archibald-Sešek

Levels 1-4  

VIOLA LESSONS

The slightly larger of the two instruments, the viola has a warm rich tone.  As the second member of the string family, it lends itself to an "alto" voice type and is usually a middle voice in chamber music. Lessons are offered at once or twice a week intervals.

There are two classes: Level 1-4 and 5-10.

Mr. and/or Dr. Sešek.  Often it will be both. 

 MUSIC THEORY AND AURAL SKILLS TUTORING (AGES 5+ and AP)

For the Beginner to Professional.  Great for a young person learning the basics or an pre-professional student either wanting to test out of the early college/university curriculum  or get a head start before entering.  Dr. Sešek has almost 10 years of collegiate teaching experience as the professor of Music Theory at Seattle University, and has helped dozens of students of all levels.
