Pedagogy

Wantuch received formal pedagogy training at Northwestern University under the guidance of Stacia Spencer. Wantuch’s personal teaching style, although informed by the Suzuki method, is holistic. Every student follows a different course of materials based on their own goals with the instrument, physical and mental needs, strengths, and weaknesses. Some common elements discussed with all students are left hand efficiency, ergonomic positioning of the bow arm, historical performance practice, and interpretation. Wantuch owes much of her teaching inspiration to her own former teachers. 

Testimonials

Bailey is a great teacher. I’m an older adult learning the violin and after a month and a half of lessons, she has already helped me improve my playing. Bailey is observant, insightful, and very receptive to the needs of the student. I highly recommend her.

Student – Chicago, USA

We have been having lessons online for my 2 children aged 12 and 14. Bailey is very professional with her lessons and has a dedicated approach together with an appropriate firmness that keeps the children motivated and enjoying the lessons. She is good natured and very comfortable to work with.

Bailey is an amazing teacher. She has worked at our school in the past. She is excellent at teaching both beginner and advanced students as well as kids and adults. You would be wise to take lessons with her.
