Kristen K. Berkeley, CA

Subjects Taught

Viola, Violin

About Me

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 private lessons at several local middle and high schools, and also maintained my own private violin and viola studio. I was also awarded the McCracken Scholarship Award for Excellence in Music Education. The most rewarding part of teaching has been seeing my students continually improve and reach their goals!

In addition to teaching, I also am an avid performer. I have been a member of the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra for 7 years and was a member of the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra. I perform as a soloist, in chamber groups, and in orchestras regularly at various events and concerts. In the past few years I have attended international chamber music festivals in Prague, Czech Republic and in Lucca, Italy. I have also had the opportunity to perform with some of the world’s most renowned musicians including Itzhak Perlman, Midori, and Gil Shaham in additional to performing in the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and in Carnegie Hall in New York City. Studying music has provided me with many wonderful opportunities to learn and to grow. It is my goal to help students really love and enjoy playing music and develop the skills that allow us to share the magic of beautiful sound. Maintaining a high level of mastery as well as continuing to learn about the art of teaching are fundamentally equal and of highest priority for me. Through teaching music, I hope to inspire students and help them reach their potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is relaxed and understanding of where each student is at, while always maintaining a quick pace for learning new skills and always expecting the student to put forth their best effort. I am very encouraging and positive. I work with each student and his or her parents to determine short and long term goals and try to best provide the materials, instruction and motivation to achieve those goals!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, well lit, piano, music stands

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical music but I also teach bluegrass and fiddle. I particularly like the Suzuki Method for beginning to intermediate students, but when they become more advanced I begin to incorporate concertos and sonatas.

Elyse A. San Francisco, CA

Subjects Taught

Viola, Violin

About Me

My name is Elyse A., and I am passionate about performing and teaching music. Originally from Colorado, I completed my BM in performance at the University of Denver's Lamont school of music. I now hold an MM in performance from the San Francisco Conservatory. I have been teaching private violin and viola lessons for the past 6 years, and I continue to love it more and more!

In the last 17 years that I have been playing, I have performed all over the country and in some of the world's greatest concert halls, including; Carnegie Hall, The Sydney Opera House, the Berlin Phillharmonie and Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. I've also participated in many summer festivals and programs, including The Quartet Program and the Bowdoin International Music Festival.

I absolutely love chamber music and play regularly with The Underground String Quartet, and the violin and guitar duo Six by Four.

Aside from classical music, I also enjoy playing jazz and pop. Recent projects include recording and performing with the Robin Yukiko Band.

I am currently accepting children ages 4-17, and adult women of all ages.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching violin and viola lessons for over 6
years in Denver and the San Francisco Bay area. Using the Suzuki method as a base, I strive to create lessons that are creative, fun and enjoyable.

Lessons often involve ear training, movement, singing and clapping to help create an overall knowledge and appreciation of music.

Students who are committed will not only develop the skills to play an instrument, but will also learn valuable traits such as focus, dedication, confidence and self-motivation.

My goal is to instill a love and appreciation of music that
will stay with my students for the rest of their lives.

*** Studio Equipment ***
music stand, chairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
You should be prepared to provide your own instrument and all accessories, including a music stand if it is at your home. Books will either be provided by me with reimbursement, or information will be given on what to purchase if you choose to get them yourself.

*** Specialties ***
I use many concepts of the Suzuki method, along with some Wohlfart, Essential Strings, Mazas and more.
