Over Kardelen B.
My name is Kardelen Buruk and I am a performing artist and teacher. I was born and raised in Turkey, and started playing the violin at the age of 8 years old. The moment I started classical music, I fell in love with it. For me the passion came from the music itself rather than the instrument. I learned to listen and find my voice through the violin.
At the age of 12 I got into the full time conservatory in Istanbul where I switched to viola. The reason I switched to the viola is that when I listened to the deep sound that the instrument created, I felt like it awakened something that was part of me.
That was the moment when I found my instrument!
I have been teaching regularly the past five years. Teaching and education have been my passion since the very beginning of my own
music education. I saw first hand that instruction of high quality can bring extraordinary potential out of just about everyone. I studied many different methods and for the violin students my preference is to start with the combination of Cohen, M., Violin Method: Pupil's Book 1 Nelson, S., Essential String Method Violin Book 1 and Suzuki Book 1.
For beginner piano students, I use Hal Leonard Student Piano Library and Suzuki Piano School. I can teach fluently in both English and Turkish as well as in some Dutch (improving all the time).
I completed my Bachelor of music in viola performance at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag with a minor in Music
Education. At the same time I have a certificate in teaching artistry from a certificate program called ‘The Global Leaders Program, where for my fieldwork assignment, I traveled to Chile and Jamaica and there I taught music intensively to kids that are underserved. I believe that a good teacher is the one who is open to learning (because learning never stops) and who has an experience in various situations. I am a very experienced teacher with an open mind and I am here to help you or your kid to learn
an instrument with the most effective and fun way.
