About Anna

Hi, my name is Anna. As an orphan, I grew up in Hungary in a foster home. At a very young age I was already exposed to music. It kind of blew me away. I didn't know how something could be so beautiful, and it was like a miracle for me. Then and there, I knew that something special was waiting for me ahead. When I was 3, I didn't talk for a long time, but I did do one thing: sing. At that point my life has totally changed. I began my long journey. My foster parents got me in to a music school, called Janos Patzay Music School. I knew immediately what I wanted to be. I built my whole life on music. It always filled up a very special place in my heart,it still does, and it always will. I started to learn the violin when I was 5 years old. Being in a music environment always gave me ...

We have been very impressed with Anna and have also received feedback from our son's orchestra instructor that she must be fantastic based on the progress our son has made over the last school year. Thank you, Anna, for all of the encouragement and instruction you've given to our son.

supportive and encouraging

I found Zach through 'take lessons' after my daughter had a few years with an intense classical pianist. I want my daughter to have fun and appreciate music and not feel the intense pressure she was feeling with our previous instructor. Zach was the perfect choice. My daughter loves her lessons. Zach does take time off for his professional endevors. Good for him. He has always let us know and connected with us when he returns.

Madeline G. Minneapolis, MN

About Madeline

Hello! I'm Maddie and I'm a violin teacher here in Minneapolis. I have been playing for 18 years and have received my Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance at the University of Minnesota. I have a wide range of experience playing violin from being concertmaster, winning a concerto competition and even traveling to China and playing Beethoven on the Great Wall! In addition, a few summers ago I had the opportunity to take part in a music festival where we worked directly with the members of the Philadelphia Orchestra, which was such an incredibly valuable experience!
However, as much as I love playing, nothing can match the joy I get from teaching others how to play. Which is where you come in! Doesn't matter if you've never had any musical training or if ...

Josephine teaches violin to my 8 year old son Kanishk, continuing for over 7 months. She is great with my son and very patient with him. She is very professional and guides my son to do his best. My son is doing great and we have increased the session from 1 to twice weekly.

She has a very positive attitude towards my son and always encourages him with good feedback.
Ash S. Saint Paul, MN

The violin is one of the most expressive musical instruments. It is a challenging yet extremely rewarding experience. I teach proper form which is paramount to getting the best sound out of the violin.
We can start from the absolute beginning level. If you are an experienced player, we can pick it up where you left off. I would love to share the magic of the violin with you or a person in your family.

About Ash

I am a college educated music instructor from St. Paul. I am also active in the local music scene as a singer/songwriter.
I began learning violin when I was 9 years old. When I heard the instrument being demonstrated by a teacher I fell in love with the sound. I taught myself guitar and piano shortly after.

I began teaching music on the side back in 2008 to supplement my family. As my business has grown faster than I expected I began to realize my potential as a teacher. I can now say that music instruction is my sole source of employment.

My teaching style incorporates learning the building blocks of music. If we can speak the language of music then we can take our study in any direction you desire. If you have a yearning to learn classical violin, we can do that. If ...

I completed my Bachelor of Music degree at a music conservatory in Berlin, Germany and received my Master of Music degree at Yale School of Music. During the summer season I coach chamber music at a music festival called Music@Menlo in San Francisco. I have taught for many years from beginner to advanced and therefore have extensive experience in teaching.

Currently I perform with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra as a full time violinist.

Hot Strings in the Chilly Twin Cities

By Greg B. - Minneapolis Violin Teacher

As a recent transplant to the Twin Cities, I have been finding out just what a Midwest winter means. Although I’m from New York, spending the last 6 years living in Miami and Los Angeles didn’t help me prepare for the chill here. But there have been some performances this winter that have been so blazing, they warmed me right to the core. If you are a student aspiring to take violin lessons in Minneapolis, you have some excellent talent to emulate.

This city has hosted many stellar string players, true musicians that redefine the possibilities of the instrument. First on my list is Andrew Bird, violinist and songwriter. His performances in December at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral were remarkable. Bird combines his violin prowess ...
