‘teaching without barriers’
Teaching without Barriers is an online platform which provides free music education through YouTube videos, developed by Founder Samuel Vargas since 2017. These videos focus mainly on violin technique, however, the channel is expanding to include more holistic content in relation to pedagogy, artistic development, and psychology. One of the main goals is to expand to tutorials of every instrument.
Ambassadors are college-level music students who volunteer as advocates for SVIMF, sharing the mission and vision and leading the collection of donated musical accessories.
Student Scholars are young musicians of all instrumental backgrounds who are matched with a Mentor for a 6-month program of technical, musical, and intellectual development.
Samuel Vargas Scholars
SV Scholars, violinists who study with founder Samuel Vargas, follow an intensive and exclusive plan of study to discover the essence of their fullest being as an artist, performer, teacher, and human.
Mentors are active performing artists who volunteer to teach Student Scholars in free one-on-one, virtual lessons.
Workshops are small classes for Student Scholars focused on specialized advocacy skills and career planning.
Conferences are publicly broadcasted seminar presentations on artistic development and contextual musical knowledge away from the instrument.
