Bohdannaӯund's of Music Studio teaches violin lessons in Winnipeg, Manitoba and has been in business since 1983. Bohdanna Patrie is an active professional violinist-vocalist dedicated not only to excellence in performance, but also, to passing on the years of experience and knowledge to others, through her teaching of the violin to many students.

"It is like magic. When their child has the proper hand positions and movements, the music flows beautifully, in tune and the student actually expresses their inner self. The practice effort is mainly to learn and develop this technique, like a good set of tools. The music is something the student builds with their own learned set of tool skills. When I teach, I teach form, (proper placement of hand and fingers especially thumb which makes playing in tune just happen because if you have the form the notes fall right under your fingers); scales and other technique ie.(running up and down the finger board, skipping and sliding). I give my students the tools."
