Learned so much in my first lesson

Diane taught me so much in a just a few lessons. She was very clear and had a great teaching personality. I would recommend any student, beginner-advanced to let Diane help you become a great violin player.

She's a great teacher

Diane has been teaching me the violin for almost four years. As her student I've had the opportunity to play at places such as Strathmore and the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. She teaches me both traditional and Suzuki methods, so there's a lot of flexibility concerning learning techniques.
Raycurt J. Washington, DC

If there's music in your head or a song in your heart, but your voice isn't so great, or maybe it is. I teach your to sing with the Violin or Viola. (soprano or Alto). The tough part is learning hold to hold the violin properly.One month of training the muscles a new stance which my help your posture and breathing. After that it's smooth sailing in music and dance. Comprehensive program with ear training and reading the music.

Excellent

I am an adult learner new to music lessons, and so was very anxious during my first violin session with Raycurt. I can't say enough about his professionalism and easy teaching style. We spoke prior to the meeting, and he told me what I needed to get started. More impressive, he showed up during a snowstorm! I highly recommend him.

Lisa is a fabulous and generous teacher. I was very scared about embarking on this venture to try and learn to sing. She has been encouraging and gentle and very, very helpful. She instills hope as well as provides me with the encouragement to keep getting better and better. I highly recommend Lisa as an excellent teacher.

Janine L. Arlington, VA

The teaching materials I use will depend on the student's age or experience. I strongly recommend that violin students also have some knowledge of playing the piano; if the student has not studied the keyboard, I will spend about 15 minutes each lesson for the first few months to teach keyboard playing, with the student's consent (using materials such as Bastien and Thompson).
For the first year of a beginning violin student, I prefer to use Rubank Publications, Essential Elements 2000, New Directions for strings (by FJH), and Suzuki book 1-3. We can also supplement the material with Tunes on the First Position, pop music selections, including Disney Solos for Violin, Star Wars Episodes, etc.
For years 2 and more, I like to use intermediate materials such as Violin Scales and Arpeggios -Fingerings based on Carl Flesch by Lisa Berman, M.M., Introducing the Positions and Developing Double-Stops for Violin by Harvey S. Whistler, Suzuki book 4-5, Hal Leonard Violin vol.3- Classical, and ...

Layla has truly been a helpful tutor. I tend to struggle in classroom environments where the teacher can't always attend to my needs with so many students, so I decided to get a tutor. Layla has experience in teaching and so I decided to give her a try. Her methods are effective and have helped my improve already in such little time. She is not only helpful during our tutoring sessions, but also maintains dialogue in-between sessions, which is also very helpful. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor. She's amazing!

Layla is a fantastic teacher! She has helped my daughter tremendously in learning her violin. She is always going above and beyond my expectations. She is always enthusiastic and positive at every lesson. I would recommend her as a violin instructor without any hesitations!
Alex M. Fairfax, VA

In my lessons I want students to develop understanding in areas such as music theory, ear training, sight reading ability, and technique foundation. In understanding these key concepts students will have access to a wider range of musical abilities with an all encompassing conceptualization of music as a whole.

With these principal fundamentals established it is my goal to teach students how to express themselves through the language of music.

I recommend a full hour lesson so a student does not feel rushed. I wish to make each learning experience as meaningful as possible and 30 minutes is not ample time to teach an impressionable lesson plan and foster a students potential in the many areas of music.

About Alex

I have been studying violin for 12 years now and have had various students throughout that time. I am a licensed substitute teacher in my hometown of Chesapeake, VA and work in the high school environment each day! I am currently a senior music education at George Mason University and have studied under Dr. Laura Kobayashi, Jennifer Kim, and Dr. Elizabeth Adams. In addition I have been studying expressional orchestral conducting under Anthony Maiello. It is my hope that in taking lessons with me students will have a better understanding of what it means to be a musician and be a part of something they love!
