Joshua C. Atlanta, GA

I began playing violin in addition to viola in high school. I enjoy the faster response of the violin and the way its higher pitches can soar over the top of the other strings, though I still prefer to play the 'inner' parts in an ensemble.

About Joshua

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach in the Education Building of a Church that has individual classrooms, where lessons will be held, all of which are off a common area where parents can wait during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public ...

Sarah H. Marietta, GA

About Sarah

I'd like to start off by stating that I am above all a passionate musician, who loves to share this passion with everyone and anyone. I do this by teaching and performing the Violin. My first goal in being a teacher is to make you enthusiastic and passionate about music to make learning the Violin more enjoyable and therefore you will learn quickly and become a virtuoso faster. My second goal is to teach you discipline, an important skill in not only Violin practice but also in life in general. Learning a musical instrument can really be beneficial in future work environments and in schooling. Below is my resume if interested. :)

Sarah is a classically trained violinist beginning her schooling at the age of seven where she showed great promise as a performer. She has since ...

We have used Sarah for the past year to teach our two daughters, both of whom are advanced violinists having played 11 and 8 years, respectively.

While Sarah has a friendly, engaging personality that is perhaps better suited for the younger, less experienced student, I don't think she's a good fit for taking an advanced student to the next level. Worse, however, is she struggles to be on time, despite the time we agree for her to start (we asked her when she can be here and be on time) and the fact that she has no obligations prior to her start time around noon.

Therefore, because she has been late frequently throughout the past year and, in her last four lessons alone was late three times and completely forgot to come on the other (it was on her TakeLesson Calendar), we had to terminate her. In seven years with their prior instructor (moved away) we can't recall one single time she was late.

Nice, friendly young lady but simply needs to learn to value an essential teacher quality of punctuality and reliability. If she could do this I would rate her a 3 Star with the potential for a 4 Star.

Perfect situation

My daughter enjoys Sarah as she is friendly and close to her same age so they can relate, giving her a positive role model as well. Having other children with other activities each week, I love that she comes to our house sparing me another trip out at night.

Outstanding Teacher!

Though I have only just started learning from Sarah, the one unique aspect of her teaching ability is that she listens and modifies her lessons specifically where the student needs the most guidance. Her more non-traditional format of teaching is excellent for someone who wants to understand the classical theory of the violin but is also interested in modern styles. I am impressed by her ability to build lesson materials based upon the student's individual goals and desires.

Beyond the technical aspects of her teaching, Sarah has a clear and unquestionable love for the violin and a desire for her students to succeed and gain the same sense of joy that the instrument obviously brings to her. It is one thing to be able teach the fundamental mechanics of playing music but is a far greater ability to teach the power that comes from loving something you are learning. In my experience as a military training officer, there are few people who know how to touch their students in a way that they desire to be better than they were the day before or to become more than they are in their own minds. Sarah is one of those gifted instructors that inspires others to greatness.

If you have a serious desire to learn the violin and want to make it part of your life, I highly recommend choosing Sarah as your instructor. I have no doubt that she will impress you as much as she has me.

I knew that I had made a good choice for a teacher when I saw some of Micheal's techniques. working with my son Alex. If Alex is not getting it, Micheal will try several ways to get the point across. From Warm ups to changing hands to learn a new piece. He does what it takes so that the student excels. He also infuses his personal experiences into the lesson when appropriate.

Still taking lessons with Michael since starting over 2 months ago learning so much! Reading violin music and learning theory has become something that I am able to now do in addition to actually playing! He is an excellent teacher who has taken me from literally knowing nothing about the violin to someone who can actually play! With more practice I am confident that violin is an instrument that I will continue to play, thanks to Michael's teaching!

About David

I have a recent background check from a CNA (nursing assistant) certification course which I took in the Fall and Winter of 2013-14. I will gladly email it upon request.

I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts.
Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist, violinist, and vocalist.
I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013.
I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

William M. Marietta, GA

Fresh out of my Master's degree in Violin Performance from UMass, Amherst. Was trained in the Franco-Belgian technique which seeks to eliminate all tension in violin playing so that the student may flourish naturally. My goal as an instructor is to help a student learn how to practice efficiently in the best way for them. Ideally they will be able to translate these skills and learned diligence into their academic classes to stay successful and keep their GPA high!

About William

While obtaining his Masters degree in Violin Performance, Myers was hired and trained by Elizabeth Chang, the Associate Professor of Violin at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He worked as the Violin Teaching Assistant to the studio where he gave weekly lessons to non-major students who were interested in continuing to better their violin playing.

While at UMass, he was trained in the Franco-Belgian violin playing style, which seeks to eliminate all points of tension while playing the violin so that the student may flourish naturally. A slow and persistent approach that focuses on obtaining the correct violin set-up and posture will ensure that EVERY student can learn the violin. His goal as an instructor is to help a student learn how to practice efficiently in the best way ...

Violin Lessons in Atlanta, GA

Music has always been one of Atlanta's claims to fame. Great talent has emerged from this city, and certainly makes it shine: Usher, Toni Braxton, OutKast, The Black Crowes, Collective Soul, John Mayer and Ludacris have all come from Atlanta's music scene.

For those who want to get started with music, popular instruments include the guitar, piano, drums and the violin. The violin in particular poses challenges that aren’t seen with other instruments; for example, it needs to be played at a precise angle that can be difficult for beginners to learn. In order to ensure proper playing habits, taking private violin lessons with a great teacher is necessary.
