Joseph Kaminsky
Mr. Joseph Kaminsky has been called "one of the finest violin teachers in this country" by one of the world's most esteemed violin teachers. Mr. Kaminsky has a stellar reputation among St. Louis violin teachers over the last 25 years of starting out young beginners and nurturing them all the way to become some of St Louis's most prominent high school violinists. He is former violin adjunct professor of violin at both Webster University and UMSL, as well as the former university string pedagogy teacher at UMSL for 12 years. His over 40 years teaching experience, his University teaching experience, and his own personal training in Japan with Dr. Shinichi Suzuki in 1984, gives Mr. Kaminsky the breadth of knowledge to work with students of all ages and levels. Mr. Kaminsky's studio ranges in age from fledgling 3-yr-old beginners to routinely having large numbers of students at the top of the local youth orchestras such as his 5 students ranked in the top 12 First violins of the 2015-16 St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra, and his 4 students ranked in the top 7 first violin chairs in the younger Webster University CMS 2017 Young Peoples Concert Orchestra. His students have been co-concertmaster of the St. Louis Youth Symphony for the past two consecutive years, and co-principal 2nd violinist of this same orchestra for the past 3 consecutive years. His students have won scores of local competitions, and also won regional and National competitions. His students have also won First place in an International competition in 2016, and 2nd place and 3rd place in two other International competitions in 2017. ASTA has recognized Mr. Kaminsky as the 2014 "Missouri Artist Teacher of the Year." Joseph Kaminsky has the rare combination of teaching skills that creatively motivate the youngest 3-yr-old beginners to put forth their best efforts while he is also able to challenge the most advanced students with professional aspirations to gain admittance into top music schools such as Julliard, Cleveland Institute, Oberlin, Vanderbilt, and Northwestern University. Mr. Kaminsky's uncanny rapport with young children stems from what University of Northern Iowa violin teacher Theresa Fetter calls his "remarkable ability to see the world through a child's eyes." Joseph Kaminsky is equally comfortable teaching at ALL levels and abilities. So far from only being a training ground for students with professional aspirations, his creative adaptive approach lets each student progress at their own desired rate rather than forcing practice, benefiting the vast majority of students who have no desire to put in the amount of practice time needed to become a professional, but still desire at times to sound like one:-) There are a number of students raised in his studio that now do play professionally in the Arkansas Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Iris Chamber Orchestra, Kansas City Symphony, Madison Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony, Paducah Symphony, New World Symphony, New York Philharmonic (substitute), Phoenix Ensemble, Syracuse Symphony, and other professional ensembles. Many became teachers themselves, but the majority just continue to play and enjoy music throughout adulthood while working professionally in other disciplines. (See video samples of his individual students age 4 and up playing by clicking on the purple "Solos" button on the upper right of the home page.) Mr. Kaminsky is columnist for the American Suzuki Journal authoring more string pedagogical articles than anyone else in the history of the magazine other than Dr. Suzuki himself! "I can't tell you how gratifying it is to feel that after just a few years of lessons I may have helped someone become a great teacher...and I can't imagine teaching vibrato to a beginner any better than Mr. Kaminsky has demonstrated. " Almita Vamos, "among the leading violin instructors in the world. (According to Wikipedia), and violin teacher of both the current St. Louis Symphony Assistant Concertmaster, and the previous St Louis Symphony Associate Concertmaster. "Joe Kaminsky's DVD "Vibrato From the Ground Up" is a wonderful resource for teachers. At the Cleveland Institute of Music I am privileged to be training the future generation of teachers. After receiving rave reviews from my pedagogy students in regards to this DVD, I plan to make it a requirement of my course. Thank you Mr. Kaminsky for sharing your ideas.
