Mariel C. Pflugerville, TX

Whether you are a beginner or intermediate player, I can help you improve your skills, reach your goals, and have fun!

About Mariel

I was born in Mexico City and have been playing violin for 17 years. I received my degree in Music Education from Brigham Young University, and have been teaching people of all ages and levels for 7 years. My main goal for my students is to help them build the very solid basics of their instrument. With my training and experience with string instruments, I can help them develop a good sound that will give them the confidence to continue their studies and perform for others. Although my training has been mostly in classical music, I have had experience teaching all kinds of genres such as country, bluegrass, and pop. *** Lesson Details *** I am a Suzuki certified teacher and use the books for my lessons. If you can't read music, I'll teach you all that you need to know when you're ...

What a joy Mariel is. So patient and understanding, puts up with my bad jokes, terrible playing and allows me to go where I want to go with the material.
I can not speak highly enough about her, but I will say I don't think any one could be better than she is.
Thanks for putting up with me Mariel

About Bethany

I started playing the violin when I was 7. I had the best violin teacher, and she took me through the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, grades 1-7, and theory. When I went to college I studied under Charles Mutter (then leader of Edinburgh's string quartet) and Tristan Gurney - both very accomplished and well-known violinists in the UK. I hope to bring what I have learned from these three to my students, with my own flare. I have played in a few orchestras - West Dunbartonshire Senior Schools orchestra, Glasgow Senior Schools String Orchestra, Clydebank High School's string ensemble, choir and windband, and the University of Edinburgh Napier's Chamber Orchestra. Orchestras are where I learned to have a passion for music and to really appreciate what being a musician was all ...

Richard D. Austin, TX

Beginner violin lessons start with an emphasis on physical interaction with the instrument and reading music in the treble clef. Students will soon read and play simple melodies from the recommended music list. Students will set goals to learn a piece of music that interests them. With guided practice and technical advice, I will make sure that the students reach their goals.

For the higher level violin lessons, I will offer guidance with any solo or ensemble piece that students are currently practicing. Also, I will encourage students to pick a piece of music or style of music that interests them as a goal to work towards.

About Richard

My name is Richard, and I am a musician/violinist/composer with a Master of Music in Composition/Theory from Penn State. I began violin lessons at age 5. Since then, I have been involved in bands, orchestras, and choirs throughout school. As a composer and recording artist, I am interested in electronic composition, interactive media, songwriting, film music, and video game music. I have experience writing music for and working with orchestra, choir, chamber ensembles, solo instruments, film, and video games. Along with my sister, Cecilia, we released our debut electronic/pop album, "Henri," under the name, Umu. I have experience teaching violin, piano, music theory, songwriting, and audio production lessons. I'm always open to the interests of the student and what he/she wants to ...

Richard is very cool. He is very nice and easy to work with. His knowledge of the piano and of music theory are exceptional and his ability to explain them to a beginner is incredible. I have learned so much in only 3 or 4 sessions and have already scheduled 4 more. I am so glad I found Richard on TakeLessons!! I would absolutely recommend him to an adult or to a child. He's the best!!!

The force is strong with this one.

Richard is an excellent teacher. I have seen steady improvement in my child's playing. Now Samantha wants to play and practice more. Richard is able to notice errors in form and technique that lead to poor habits without discouraging her. Richard is able to explain to my child how to fix her mistake and encourages her in a positive way. This makes all the difference in the world.
Naomi Cherie S. Austin, TX

I am a violinist, artist and singer/songwriter from here in Austin, Texas who has been teaching violin for over 14 years. I believe that with enough practice, patience and dedication anyone can learn to play a new instrument. No previous experience necessary-- just a passion for music!

Lessons will focus on:

-A solid basic foundation in classical music-- we can branch out from here!
-Learning to read music, use dynamics, bow, tune, scales, developmental exercises.
-Above all: having fun and pursuing a new passion.

Music is my life and has taken me all over the country and across the world and I want to share its magic with as many people as I can!

I asked Joshua Bell (one of the greatest violinist of our time) about how to be a great violinist? To which he responded by saying: "Find a really good teacher, one who pushes you and cares for your success."
I would not be exaggerating by saying Naomi is one of those teachers.
I've been taking lessons for almost 4 years and Naomi has been nothing but supportive, cheerful, energetic, focused and dedicated to finding even the minutest mistake. Naomi has tirelessly pointed out even the slightest of out of tune notes; and she demands perfection before moving on to next lesson. She focuses on fundamental over frills; and she really cares for the success of her students.
She has always pushed me and motivated me in many creative ways to practice and be better at violin. I am going to continue taking lessons with her and would highly recommend Naomi.

Naomi is an excellent teacher. She is patient, kind, and won't blow you off if you have a question. In the 2 years that she was my teacher, she has taught me a lot about the violin, which techniques to use, how to tune my instrument, and much more. If you want to learn the violin, take her as your teacher! You won't regret it :)

I was totally a beginner in Violin when I started my lessons with Naomi. She is a very patient and loving teacher, taught me how to hold bow correctly, with a lot of helpful practice and encouragement, which is really helpful to beginners who know nothing. She always tried her best to help me to master the skills, a lot of observation and correction, also encouragement. When I first started, I never expect to keep learning for over a year. Then five years later, I found myself still enjoy the lesson and playing violin. Due to some personal reasons, I have to give up my violin lesson. But my five years experience of learning violin is like a difficult but fun journey, and Naomi is there to keep me on the track and make the journey even more enjoyable.

Yes, I highly recommend Naomi to be your violin teacher!
