Nicolas R. Sherman Oaks, CA

For violin and viola, I teach a combination of traditional approached mixed with the Suzuki Method - a combination that I have found useful for my students. I also incorporate Latin/Tango, romantic violin playing, and I arrange pop/rock songs to be played on violin and other string instruments that my students would enjoy practicing at home.

About Nicolas

My philosophy is to make sure that the student is having fun while staying engaged and progressing at their own pace.

Marta is an exceptional instructor, and we are so lucky to have found her! My now 10 year old has been her student for a year and a half and has truly blossomed as a violin player. Marta is not only talented, but kind, patient, and accommodating. She is 100% engaged and dedicated to her students and clearly takes great care in developing their love of music. We could not have asked for a better instructor!

Marta is a professional in every sense of the word. First of all, she is punctual, which in my book is everything. Once the lesson starts with my 11 yr. old son she is incredibly focused and passionate about making sure he is really taking in what she is teaching. If she senses that he might not be getting something, she patiently starts over and goes over every step along the way. From posture to tonality she is giving my son a strong base from which he will be able to build on. He absolutely adores her and so do I!

Our son is taking violin lessons from Tigran. We absolutely love him. Tigran comes to our home every week and we have complete trust in him. He is extremely kind and patient and has an amazing teaching style. Our son has only had about 7 months of lessons and each month he has tremendous growth. He is 18 years old and has never had a violin lesson until now. He practices without us having to tell him and he looks forward each week to his lessons with Tigran----That speaks volumes about Tigran as a teacher. We highly recommend him as a teacher and a friend.

My 11 yr old son has been playing violin for a while with the same teacher, and we decided to change teachers to learn other techniques and to pique his interest. We have been with Tigran for almost two months now and there has been a significant
improvement with my son's playing. He seem to acquire back his enthusiasm and passion for playing. He plays with our community Youth Orchestra on the 1st violin
and sits on the 4th chair before starting with Tigran, now he was advanced to the 2nd chair. We are grateful to Tigran for his patience and time. He is very accommodating with his schedule and goes out of his way in teaching my son, on top of it all he is very professional. We would highly recommend him as a great violin teacher.

My 5 year old has been taking violin lessons from Tigran for the past 6 months and she has been thriving and learning faster than we expected. He is exceptionally patient with her and adapts to her aptitude level. We love what she's been able to learn in such a short amount of time thanks to Tigran.

James T. Van Nuys, CA

I started playing Viola at age twenty, moving from the Violin. The transition was great because being a violinist you have the technical advantage and speed that most violists don't have.

I have played professionally all around the world from Australia to Europe and to America. The US government recently recognized me as one of the best Violists from Australia and granted me with an extraordinary ability visa. I not only play classical music in orchestras but I also play an electric instrument with DJ's in nightclubs.

I love passing on my knowledge to new students to help them grow as a musician, nothing is more satisfying to see someone learn how to play an instrument and watch them really enjoy the process.

About James

I started my musical career at the age of 2, on the piano, shortly afterwards moving to the violin, and most recently, the viola. Earning the music scholarship at school for best classical musician, and later on the scholarship for best orchestral instrumentalist at the world renowned music conservatoire WAAPA (West Australia Academy of Performing Arts). Earning my first diploma (A.Mus.A) at age 14, my music has taken me all around the world. I've played such places as the Australian High Commission, Rheingoldhalle in Mannhein, Dvorak hall in Prague, Australian embassy in London, Disneyland in Paris, and the opening the Australian embassy in Berlin, all before the age of 18. I have played in trios, quartets, as a soloist, and many orchestral ensembles playing major concertos, ...

I had a few lessons with another teacher on violin. I came across to James because the other teacher wasn't really working out and I was having trouble understanding. James really walked me through each step of the way so well. He has great patience that really helped me relax and learn so much faster. It has been a great experience.

After playing saxophone for the last few years I wanted to learn the basics of piano. The piano has always been one of my favorite instruments. James made it so much easier than I could have ever imagined. I thought it would have taken a lot longer to get the basics down but within no time at all I was already playing songs that I love. He really broke it down step by step making it easy for me to know exactly what I needed to practice to get me where I wanted to be. I highly recommend James as a teacher, he is friendly and fun to work with. I always look forward to my lessons each week.

I have taken private lessons with multiple instructors throughout my life. Adrianne has by far been the best instructor I ever had. She was very patient and had very creative and effective approaches to explaining difficult techniques.
She helped me improve a lot in a short period of time and pointed out many mistakes and bad habits that none of my other teachers had ever noticed.
She is great!

I started taken violin lessons with Adrianne as a refresher and a supplement to my chamber ensemble class. Having not really taken one-on-one lessons in a long time, there were a few bad habits that I formed that Adrianne was easily able to notice and give helpful advice. She was always a patient and very attentive listener. Almost immediately I could tell there was a difference in my sound production and bowing techniques from her practice tips. Definitely worth investing in her lessons!

I have played viola as long as I have been playing violin. I love the violin, but the viola has a certain richness about it that I cannot keep myself away from.

If you are interested in learning to play the viola or to advance further in your viola studies, I will do my best to take you as far as you are willing to go.

About Brandon

I have been teaching violin privately and in the classroom for several years now. I am finishing up my education in violin performance, and I will be continuing to a master's degree in violin performance within the next year. I play violin and viola professionally. If you would like to start lessons, I am available to teach beginning to intermediate/advanced level students. I try my best to adapt to my students individual learning styles. Everybody is different, and it's my goal as a teacher to have my students reach an understanding for music and hopefully grow to have a love for it as well.
