Thank you very much for the special violin lessons during my vacation in Helsinki. I was very pleased with Ivan Zoteev’s guidance, friendship and discipline. He taught me how important it is to keep every muscle as relaxed as possible. This way you’ll be able to produce a nice sound and enjoy playing the violin. Now, being back home again, I still think about the lessons and thoughts. I very much appreciate Ivan’s time, patience and his smile. If all schools were like Taidetölöö in Helsinki, every student would be well educated with proper values and conduct. I’ll definitely come back for more violin lessons on my next trip to Helsinki.
