Ilona has been teaching piano to my 12 year old daughter for a few weeks now but already I can see a dramatic improvement in my daughter's playing! Ilona is a wonderful teacher who is able to not just provide piano playing instruction but also provides instruction on music theory to students to really provide a comprehensive musical education for her students!

Excellent teacher!

As I've worked with Ilona and gotten to know her as my teacher, I realize that she really truly cares that I learn well and learn the proper way. She can be tough and gives me a good amount of work to do, but it's all because she wants me to learn and learn well. If I'm unable to complete an assignment she just laughs and says "Life happens" - she's very understanding. She's very patient and encourages me all the time. I often will make a comment such as "I stink at this" and she'll tell me I'm too hard on myself and piano is a learning experience. Obviously teaching is her calling in life and she's excellent at it! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn the art of playing the piano.

Ilona is one of the best teachers I had so far. I have fun with her learning cello.

I learned a lot with her and enjoy playing with her duets on the violin. Because of her I got into Gold Cost Youth Orchestra where I met one of her violin students Sharri. She encouraged me to stay focused on my playing and to perform chamber music with her. Very well organized teacher, I will recommend her for any age.

Joe's strong music background and experience make him a good teacher. I'm positive that he would be excellent with a beginner. I only needed a refresher in knowledge and he has helped me a great deal. I would strongly recommend him for future students

Mr. Kelvin is a very skillful musician and a passionate teacher. Just a couple of months into learning piano, the 30 minute weekly lesson at Mr. Kelvin's studio became a fun activity my 5 year old daughter is enjoying every week. I can tell that she is having fun every time at Mr. Kelvin's studio, and she just loves learning piano there.

Kudos to Kelvin! He played an integral part in preparing Nick for his audition with the Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra in Atlanta. The best part is that Nick passed the audition and will be joining the orchestra later this month. Kelvin and Nick have a great connection. He truly supports my son's love of music.

Stephanie is extraordinary!

I never gave it any thought that it would be possible to learn such a complex instrument via Skype. To find someone as professionally trained as her is very challenging in of itself, but to have someone of her caliber teach my daughter from many miles away in the comfort of our home is truly amazing! Stephanie was very patient, observant, extremely knowledgeable and a talented teacher. It is quite a luxury to have the opportunity to work with her. I'd recommend her highly. If you are hesitant to try her online lessons I would suggest you at least give it a chance; you will be pleasantly surprised.

Great piano teacher for youth or adults

I have known Stephanie Quinn for over 14 years, during which she has been my piano teacher, mentor, and friend. Her accomplishments as a professional musician--on piano and violin--are numerous and impressive in and of themselves. What distinguishes Stephanie, however, from other performers / teachers is her unique combination of competence, passion, and disciplined approach to teaching. Her studio, which includes students of all ages and levels, is unmistakable proof of that. I am extremely grateful to Stephanie for starting me on a path towards love of music, and for helping me develop the ability to share it with others.
Anna B. New Albany, IN

I have over 10 years of experience performing various 'alternative' styles including Americana, Celtic, Rock, Jazz, and Pop. I've had the fortune to perform with groups that have shared the stage with Laurence Juber (Grammy winner and Lead Guitarist for Paul McCartney's Wings), Michael Fitzpatrick, CJ Vanston, Ambrosia, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. My band Southern Sirens has had the opportunities to open for national acts including Bruno Mars and Carlene Carter.

When I teach fiddling I highly encourage creativity and learning music 'off the page'. Fiddling isn't meant to be the same way each time. There is room for creativity, variation, and improvisation. Students will learn technique, theory, chord progressions, and tunes.

Rachel G. Hampton, VA

I have a violin performance degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and perform with an internationally touring Celtic group called Tullamore. I've been teaching violin and fiddle for over 10 years now, all ages, all learning types, and I look forward to working with you! I am a patient and encouraging teacher (if I may say so myself), and my teaching style is effective, fun, and relaxed.

About Rachel

Hi, there! My name is Rachel, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2002, and have loved helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing (so much "proud mama bear" happening!). In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I also studied piano and vocal pedagogy. I'm an encouraging and fun person to work with (if I may say so myself!), and my teaching style is fun, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, PTSD, and just plain ol' stage fright! I work with you to set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... ...

I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. I am 68 now so it’s about time. I saw Rachel’s ad and decided to give it a try. She is very knowledgeable and the lessons are actually fun and the time goes by quickly. I am glad that I called her. I like taking lessons from someone who performs.

About Fiddle

What’s the difference between a violin and a fiddle? The truth is they are actually the same instrument. A violin can be considered a fiddle and vice versa. However, what distinguishes the two are how they are played and in what genre. The instrument tends to be referred to by its more formal name within a classical and orchestral setting. On the other hand, with styles such as the Cajun fiddle, Irish fiddle, Irish Celtic fiddle, and bluegrass fiddle, it is simply referred to as a fiddle. The fiddle puts more emphasis on a free-flow style, while the violin usually adheres to more structured playing.

If you want to learn both styles, it is often recommended that you take fiddle lessons as they will give you an in-depth understanding regarding the difference in techniques and how to ...
