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. I was a winner of two concerto competitions, which gave me the opportunity to perform solos with the youth orchestra. I continued my studies at the University of Kentucky as a Violin Performance major and it was there that I discovered my love for teaching music! After completing my performance degree, I decided to also pursue a Bachelor’s in Music Education. 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 !

About john

I am an experienced instructor focused on beginning students of any age. It is never too late to learn the violin. I use the Shinozaki method as the primary textbook with Suzuki and Miller as supplemental texts. Students will be introduced to the history and structure of the violin and will learn how to read music, accurate intonation, identifying notes by ear, correct posture, proper bow holding, breathing and relaxation techniques. Methods I've developed over the years will help beginners master techniques that normally take years to develop and will allow students to quickly build up confidence and overcome psychological barriers.

Here is a recommendation written for me by a former student:

I am pleased to write a letter recommending Mr. John L. as an excellent violin ...

Samuel N. San Francisco, CA

Teaching students about:
-scales and arpeggios
-proper bow technique
-left hand facility
-Etudes
-Intonation
-Repertoire
Improving these skills can greatly increase the enjoyment of playing in students.

About Samuel

Hello, I'm Sam, and I've been playing the viola for 13 years, and teaching for a total of 4-5 years. I'm a recent graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, but I'm a native born South Dakotan. I'll tell you a little bit about myself as a teacher.

I love sharing what I've learned with students, and I'm particularly interested in teaching students what they want to work on, but also giving them the tools that they need to succeed. I teach from either a traditional standpoint, or from Suzuki books in order to teach technical facility.

I don't provide instruments or the accessories that go along with it, so please be prepared to have those things. I'll also provide a list of music that you should order after our first lesson. ...

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.

I began learning to play violin from the age of 7 and picked up the viola beginning at age 15. I played in the San Diego Youth Symphony in high school. I have been teaching violin and viola since 2012. I have greatly enjoyed both teaching music and learning about music pedagogy through the Suzuki Association of the Americas.

I have taught private violin and viola lessons since the beginning of 2012. As a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, I have completed their violin pedagogy courses for Suzuki books one through three. I play viola in the San Francisco Civic Orchestra.

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 ...
