About Allison

I began playing the violin in 3rd grade in my school general music class and instantly fell in love with it. I begged my mom for private lessons and after a year, she finally caved in. By my freshman year in high school, I had decided that I wanted to major in violin performance in college and make a career out of being a classical violinist.
I went on to earn my Bachelor of Music in violin performance from State University of New York at Purchase. During my freshman year, I began teaching private violin and viola lessons at the Westport Music Center in Connecticut. I quickly realized that teaching is very fulfilling and that I loved sharing my passion and knowledge of the violin with others. While in undergrad, I also won my first job in a part time professional orchestra, the ...

This teacher is outstanding.

I would think that Allison would be good with any age and capability, but my daughter is 7 and just beginning. Allison is a perfect teacher. She makes good use of every minute, yet is fun and pleasant. She constantly gives positive reinforcement. My daughter really likes her and so do I!

Sarah K. San Diego, CA

Learn any piece you want! With instructor's perfect pitch, you're not limited to just books. Sarah will teach you posture, rhythm, reading, sound, performance, technique, etc.

About Sarah

I believe that learning to play an instrument doesn't have to be difficult. It should be enjoyable and fun! If your child is a beginner, we will take turns picking songs to ensure that they practice; I utilize stickers and goal-oriented tasks to have fun and encourage students to maintain their interest and also hold them accountable. If you're a beginner adult, I will require more self-discipline from you, but we will still pick songs and genres you want to play, with classical and recognizable folk songs on the side.
For beginner&intermediate students:
For piano, you'll have to adjust your hands in awkward positions; for violin/viola, you'll have to make some unpleasant sounds before you make beautiful ones. So why not make the transition ...

Sarah is like a friend I visit once a week. My first violin lesson was almost a year ago and I came to Sarah very nervous, without any experience in music. In just two lessons, she taught me how to read music and play a song. We now play duets of songs we feel like. Sarah is a talented teacher and also makes her students feel comfortable.

I am an adult learner and wanted a teacher that did not treat me like a child. Erin is a great teacher and treats me like an adult. She helps me to attain my goals and works at my pace. She encourages me especially when I don't think I can do a particular piece or perform at a recital. I know she can take me through to any level I want to accomplish on the violin.

Jazmin, my daughter,has been playing cello for almost 2 years and was having a rough time,losing interest and motivation.Erin was of tremendous help.She immediately connected with my daughter,who needed a little push to keep going after we moved to a rural area and she left her friends behind,got her motivated again to start playing and now she is back at school where she will be part of the orchestra once again. Thank you very much for all your help,Erin!

My name is George. I am professional viola player and teacher graduated with MM from Sankt-Petersburg Conservatory and BM from Sankt-Petersburg College. In both I had studied viola, piano, music theory, harmony and polyphony (basically), had a large experience of teaching children and adults. I'm able to work with any level of students being very flexible and making study process exciting, useful and funny. During lessons I usually show by my self how to play in order to inspire my students and help them to reach their goals and aims. My professional achievement as a teacher is that all my students begin to fall in love with music very quickly and practice with pleasure, even those who were frustrated or pained by their previous experiences with other teachers and have ...

Excellent teacher. I had a teenager who was loosing interest in playing the violin. Since having George as an instructor she has gained interest and practices her violin on her own. She has also drastically shown improvement by playing in all the positions and playing very difficult music to prepare her to play in an orchestra. George is very patient. He makes the individual fall in love him not only the instrument but with music in general. I feel very lucky to have found him. He is a wonderful musician.
