Student Violin Performances

The following videos are performances by a few of my students. The first performance is a duet in which I played the first violin part. As a violin teacher, it has been very rewarding for me to see the progress of my students as evidenced by my instruction. I hope you enjoy them.

Instructor Violin Performances: Marnie Thies

I have enjoyed playing Beethoven’s “Spring” Sonata and the Paganini Violin Concerto, which is one of my favorite concertos. The “Spring” sonata and the Paganini Concerto are very melodious and I find it easy to be more expressive with melodic pieces.
