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 strength, made me feel safe, and made me stronger as a person. I decided to learn more, and to grow, I must never give up on my dreams. After elementary school, in 1998, I went to Bela Bartok Music High School,and graduated in 2002. I continued studying music at the University of Miskolc Bela Bartok Institute of Music trough 2004-2008. Those four years were some of the best years of my life. In college, I changed my major to viola instead of violin. I am never going to forget the day of my diploma concert (April 27,2008, Sunday). It was wonderful. All the hard work and studying got me here to this point. I had no family being there for me all these years, nothing really, only God and music. Knowing the fact what I wanted kept me going in the hard times. In 2003, I met with a pastor from the United States who were on a mission trip in Hungary, in the orphanage I lived. Nothing can describe it, not even words what we had. I felt like I always knew her. I used to say I was born in a wrong place in a wrong time. After my diploma concert she and her husband adopted me. Today I am able to say that I have a family,a real family with true love. So, I came here to study English (ESL) at the University of Minnesota for a year and a half. Not having time for me to practice and not have music around me for a little over than a year,it made me really sad. I was depressed, and I thought I am going to get crazy. Music was totally cut out from my life. In 2009, I finally had my music back. I was enrolled in Crown College for 2 years. I attended the school's chamber orchestra and quartet, and I also attended other classes as well ( English, drawing, painting, and piano). I have been in different chamber groups through all of my schools (duet, trio, quartet, symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra). I also studied how to teach violin ( teaching techniques) for four years in college. I observed teaching methods at the Beni Egressy Music School once every week. In my fourth year of college, I was also teaching little ones, and after my diploma concert I also had to do a diploma teaching.
I live in Shakopee, and I've been married for over three years now. I made a little music studio in my home, that's where I teach most of my students. I have a couple of music stands, and I have my own instruments (violin, viola). I will be able to teach in Shakopee, and in Victoria. I would be teaching from published repertoire, and my own as well. I would be more than happy to answer any question as it appears. I'll be always available at my email.
It was a long and hard journey, but I never gave up. I became what I wanted to be, what I always dreamed of. With God's love and with music, everything is possible.

I am a kind of teacher (person) who is more laid back, make sure everything and everybody is comfortable, yet challenging and expecting good work. I like to make a lesson be worth it: as for me and as for the child. I use a combination of fun and work together, because I think it's important for the student to feel relaxed and also have a good time.
I am really patient with my students, while helping them master new songs and techniques. I understand that every student learns in a different way that is unique to them, and I will do my best to discover each student's learning style. I do not ask for perfection, but I do drive them to do their best.This is my motto: "Do the best you can", and "Be the best you can be".
I am a classically trained musician, and I believe that it's really important to have a strong foundation of learning the basics: reading notes, rhythms, a little bit of music theory etc. Everything else builds on this, for example, like learning and playing different styles or genres in music. You have to know the basics in order to be able to play them.
In each lesson, I will have assignments for the students to work on throughout the week: 1-2 songs for 30 minute lesson, 2-3 songs for 45 minute lesson, 3-4 songs for an hour lesson, and I will always ask for a specific scale at the beginning of every lesson. How fast or slow we can move forward, and how much we can learn it's really depends on the students. These assignments will be showed first (I'll play it to the student), then we work on them together. I'll make sure they understand what I am showing and telling them before leaving. I will also have technique exercises, and music theory sheets for students.
I take practice very seriously. The amount of time I recommend is varies according to the student's age and skill level.
Students will have a recital twice a year. They will show what they have learned through the two semester. I also encourage students to share their talent in community and school talent shows, at church, at family gatherings, and for friends.
Note: I do have cats in my home. If you or your child has a problem with cat allergies, I can teach in Victoria, give lessons in our church.

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 you're mastering a Bach Solo Sonata, there is always something more to learn. Famous violinist, Jascha Heifetz, said it best:
"There is no top. There are always further heights to reach."

As a teacher, I strive for my students to be both motivated and interested in the instrument they want to play. I strongly believe in letting the music speak and I encourage my students to play pieces they love! However, i also believe in forming the right technique and positions that allow the students to play what they like.
In lessons, I emphasize both technique and musical expression and guide the student in seeing how the two work together. We start with basic knowledge of the violin and correct positions, as well as getting starting in the Suzuki books. As the student develops their playing, they can branch out into a variety of other pieces. I also like to give the students fun exercises to do at home/school/work so they can practice anywhere at anytime!
I have found that it is crucial to be able to adapt to and understand each student’s particular needs. Because of this, I like to make practical goals with the student at every lesson. These are goals that their weekly practice schedules can accommodate, and are manageable yet challenging.

I am a college educated music instructor from St. Paul. I am also active in the local music scene as a singer/songwriter. Please check out my website to learn even more about me. www.ashstjohn.com
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 rock guitar is your thing, we can explore all the guitar greats. If you want to learn songwriting on the piano, by all means!

My name is Hannah, a recent graduate of St. Olaf College with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance. As a child of two professional musicians, I have been around musical instruction and enterprise my whole life. I feel I bring a unique perspective and sense of genuine passion into my own performing as well as teaching. I believe a successful musician is one whose music causes people to feel. The emotions of human living provide the avenue for our connection with one another. Too often I fear musicians forget about this aspect of music – the ability to influence. While technique is important, especially in the formative years, I think it is vital to develop a conversation between facility and musicality. Through teaching, I desire to communicate these truths to people, hopefully allowing them to not only be in touch with themselves, but with something much greater. Also, playing the violin is fun! I enjoy witnessing the playful and exciting moments my students experience.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
