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.

Marcus R. Austin, TX

In violin lessons, I strive to push my students to play as professionally as possible while stretching themselves creatively. Beginning-Intermediate students will work out of the Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books in order to develop a solid technical foundation before branching out into broader repertoire. I make sure that lessons progress steadily and that students are comfortable with technique and reading before advancing to new skills. With intermediate-advanced students I work on solo/duo pieces as well as more theoretically minded practices. I try to instill a basic knowledge of music theory into all of my violin students since that can be a key asset when learning music for UIL competitions or auditions of any kind. I'm also specialized in a number of non-classical violin styles and am happy to work with students towards any stylistic goal that they have.

About Marcus

I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later.

I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well.

While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in ...

Marcus is great! I have been working with him for over three months. I am 37 and did not consider myself to be a musician at all when I started working with Marcus. I set a personal goal to learn to play something, and I can do that now. Marcus is friendly, communicates well, adapts to my learning style and pace, and has been really patient in helping me learn the basics.

He has been super-flexible with scheduling. I was a little apprehensive about going to a stranger's home, but it's not weird at all. His place is comfortable and inviting.

Excellent instructor-Highly recommended

Marcus has been an excellent instructor. He is friendly, patient, and professional. He does a great job of explaining concepts. If I need to reschedule a lesson he is always willing to work with whatever times are best for me.

He is very knowledgeable about different music styles and bands.

At our first lesson, he asked if I had any music I was specifically interested in learning. I appreciated his focus on making the lessons more personal instead of just following the instruction book.

Great violin teacher

I sadly just found out Marcus will be moving to another state and will no longer be able to teach my daughter violin. We will miss Marcus greatly! He has been an amazing teacher. He is patient, kind, hard working and honest. He sets a great pace and achievable goals. My daughter is 7 and looks forward to her violin lessons with Marcus every week. She started the last day of January this year and can already sight read fairly well, bow and pick her way through simple songs. As a musician myself I know teaching others to play can become frustrating,but with Marcus he actually enjoyed the process of a student evolving. I've never seen a negative emotion from him and my daughter-who normally has attention issues-listens attentively to him and when she gets antsy he works with it beautifully. He is a great teacher and I highly recommend him.
Bethany P. Austin, TX

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 ...

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 ...

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.
Roseminna W. Austin, TX

About Roseminna

I come from a large family of visual, literary, and performing artists. My mother, Clyde W. taught me from age three until I went on to study at the New England Conservatory’s Preparatory School. I have extensive training and performance experience. Alongside my musical endeavors, I have always pursued visual art and the written word, incorporating these mediums into my expressive and teaching practices. I also incorporate physical and biological metaphors into my lessons, bringing basic yoga in where it is useful. I strive to offer a wide breadth of information and ways of thinking as I encourage each student to discover and hone what is innately theirs, using music as the ultimate medium.

I started violin at 18. I've had about five violin teachers so far, including a university violin professor. Rosey was my most recent teacher.

Rosey was the most successful at portraying the requirements of the skills I was trying to improve. She was adept at descriptive language and analogies, which made the lessons easier to understand. I quickly noticed Rosey's deftness and grace, both in technique demonstration and general body language.

I'd still have her as a teacher, but alas, she moved to Texas.
Rosey - Good luck in the Lone Star state :)

Roseminna is an artist in the true sense of the word. Her natural intuition for figuring new concepts and problem solving old ones makes her an obvious choice as a teacher for beginning or advanced students. I was lucky enough to work with and get to know Rosey in both the realm of performance and education over the last 5 years, give or take. Her unique addition to the already existing traditional style of the violin is one that I hope to see more of in the next generation of musicians to come, and one that is definitely worth exploring first hand, through the teacher herself! I highly recommend Roseminna as your next choice for violin, chamber or music lessons of any kind. You will not leave without having had a truly fulfilling musical and personal experience, as her extreme devotion to music, sound, and movement is continuously expressed and practiced in all aspects of her life, a rarity to experience among many other traditional violin teachers. Rosey cares about every note, about every person, and every thought that instigates the desire to play music. If you're looking for a great teacher with limitless knowledge about the violin, with boundless energy, and with an genuinely humble personality, this is the way to go for sure! Please check her out for yourself--you'll be so happy you did. She is definitely a hidden gem in the Austin community.
Ariana B. Austin, TX

I am currently a private violin teacher at the Lone Star School of Music in South Austin. I have been playing for 12+ years. I have over 7 years of orchestral experience. I also love non-classical styles (fiddle music, middle eastern, jazz).
My teaching philosophy is that students should learn music that they ENJOY! But hard work is necessary. I love using fun things such as stickers, candy, etc. to reward my students hard work.
My goals in teaching: have strong fundamental skills & passion!
