A Great Violin Teacher

My daughter has been taking lessons with Larisa for three years and has made incredible progress. She began as a viola player and Larisa gave her lessons on that instrument as well. She was very helpful in making the transition to violin. Larisa works on technique as well as musicality so that the student develops into a well rounded musician. Larisa is the type of teacher who communicates clearly so that the student is able to immediately grasp the new concepts. She is a wonderful violinist and is able to demonstrate by playing beautifully as well as explaining. Larisa is extremely knowledgeable about the different periods of music and composers and shares this in her teaching. She has an easygoing personality and my daughter immediately connected with her. I would highly recommend Larisa for your student.

Perfect balance of professionalism and passion

Larisa was not our first teacher but she is no doubt the best one. She is highly professional, she accentuates the right positioning of the hands, but the music and emotional expression is on the first place. She combines the best of the Russian music teaching tradition with very attentive and fun environment for kids. She is very sensitive to child's needs and structure her lesson very individually . Not to mention her excellent communication and reliability. She also has a very positive attitude and my daughter is always looking forward to her violin lessons. Thank you, Larisa!

About Kristen

My name is Kristen K. and I am an accomplished violinist and teacher from Lexington, Kentucky. I began my musical studies at age 7 and quickly discovered my passion and love for music. As a young musician, I attended numerous summer music festivals, participated in the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra.

During my college career, I served as a teaching assistant in the University of Kentucky String Project, I taught group and ...

If I could write anything to hope that you choose Kristen to teach you, imagine it here: _______. That said. She is Amazing, Fantastic, Patient, Fun, Understand, did I say Patient!? I am a 28 year old man that is learning Viola as his "2nd" real instrument. I play piano well, and "campfire" guitar. Kristen is teaching me to read Alto clef and play the Viola. She is teaching at MY pace and not complaining when I come in without having the most practice time accomplished throughout the prior week. She has a flexible schedule and is available for communication (email and phone) between lessons (I've rescheduled many times because my work hours are not constant). She's Great! I hope you let her teach you! Thank you for reading.

Kristen is wonderful with kids - patient, thoughtful, even-keeled. My daughter looks forward to seeing her each week, and is growing to love an instrument she never gave a second thought to when she was made to play it in the school band. I Highly recommend her !

Complete and knowledgeable

I've recently took a block of 20 lessons with Kristen and I can say without a doubt that her skill at conveying her knowledge is unsurpassed. There was never a session that I came away from that I didn't learn something. I could describe my issues every week and she would offer several suggestions on overcoming it. Because of this, she made it possible for me to reach new heights in my skill with my instrument, but also a deeper understanding of music structure and theory. I highly recommend her if you are looking for that one teacher to help lead you, for any age.

Daphne is an amazing teacher! She comes to my home, is always on time, and we have very productive lessons that inspire me to practice the entire week in between lessons. She is supportive, encouraging, positive, and a pleasure to be around.

We've only had a few lessons but Drew is enjoying it and likes Daphne a lot. I will have a better idea of how much Drew is progressing in the coming months.

Maiani D. San Francisco, CA

I've been teaching privately for 12 years. My curriculum consists of a combination of teaching schools (Suzuki, European, El Sistema). I'm an active performer and am constantly evolving my practice, which I share with my students. I love that every student is different and learns differently. Having a good foundation is crucial to learning any genre of music. My goal is to learn how each student learns and to teach them accordingly. I find this is the best and most effective style of teaching.

I've been teaching privately for 12 years. All of my students are of varying age (3-70s) and backgrounds. I enjoy personalizing lessons as everyone learns differently.
I have taught in the U.S., France, and Brazil.

Some of my classical performance experience includes Symphony NH, Cape Cod Symphony, L'Orchestre Lamoureux of Paris, Leipzig Chamber Orchestra (China tour 2009-2010), One Found Sound, as well as being a part of the Apple Hill Fellowship String Quartet (Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music). I have also performed with pop-stars such as Peter ...
