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!

Allison is very patient and perceptive when teaching. She is great at observing and correcting my mistakes. She gives great advice on how to make my playing better. Most of all, she is a nice and competent teacher. I plan to continue my lessons with her in the future.

wonderful teacher

As an adult beginner, I was very nervous about beginning violin lessons. I've been taking lessons with Sang for about 15 months now and have loved every lesson. She is patient and has helped me progress farther than I thought I possible for me. Along with technique, she encourages me to learn and explore music beyond the etude books.

Great violin teacher!!

Sang is very patient and encouraging. She's really good at explaining things and can see immediately where I need to improve (so I don't develop incorrect habits). I've learned so much in a relatively short amount of time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a violin instructor!

Sang is very patient and encouraging, and very understanding for those who are just beginning like myself. I would highly recommend her to others.
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.

Thank you very much for all your help,Erin!

George is truly a music professional with a heart for his students. Music is his passion. He writes, performs and teaches music with his heart and mind, gaining respect from peers, friends and students everywhere he goes, and enjoys his work. His music career spans globally, with major footprints in Boston, Sydney, Nova Scotia, Shanghai, San Diego and many other cities around the world. He is inclusive, caring, fun to be with and very well-trained musically.
My daughter, Crystal, was admitted to Walnut Hill Music School of Boston 1 year ago and has flair very well.. Crystal's significant progress in music was principally attributable to George's dedication in his teaching to her for more than 5 years in Shanghai. In Shanghai, new students queued up to have the opportunities to receiving violin and piano classes from George. We are so lucky to have known George and his family. George made every music class a wonderful experience to his students. His students, many became followers, love his teachings and philosophies of life ... they will be shared with the passion George has in music from the very first minute of meeting with him, his good sense of humour and be trained to enjoy music.
Many many of George students made their ways to top music conservatories across the world. Some simply learned to enjoy music more in life ... George is the Number 1 music teacher, a fine gentleman with a good heart, in my opinion.
We missed him dearly in Shanghai and wish him all the Very Best in the US !!

George is one of the world's top violinists and teachers. His students have won world-class, international competitions and been accepted with scholarships to prestigious schools such as Menuhin. My daughter (now aged 15) was fortunate to be accepted as Mr. George's student for almost 3 years in Shanghai. Her progress was rapid and remarkable, to the level where she is now invited to be a part-time member of a professional orchestra and the conservatory in Shanghai. All attributed to George. If you have the talent and alacrity to apply yourself, George will mold you into a top violinist. If he accepts you, consider this a true honor and reflection of your potential.

Our entire family is delighted to highly recommend Mr. George as both a violin and piano teacher. He is simply one of the most talented violin (and piano) teachers in the world. He is a highly gifted and accomplished performer who has a special ability to explain the intricacies of playing so his students understand. He uses highly effective, colorful language in his teaching and he works tirelessly and patiently to guide each student through their studies. As is rare today, he not only provides students with flawless technical skills, most importantly he nurtures their musicality.
He has inspired many students to pursue careers in music and each has reached their goals of getting into great programs. George sets high expectations for all of his students and they all take pride in being a part of a special studio under the guidance of a uniquely talented teacher. His studio feels like a family and all students support one another.
After studying with George for over four years in Shanghai, our older daughter was accepted into The Yehudi Menuhin School, where she currently studies, The Royal Academy of Music Junior Academy (offered a place immediately following her audition with a full scholarship) and The Royal College. Our younger daughter was accepted into The Royal Academy of Music Primary Academy, and she was also offered places as the Music Scholar at 7 senior schools in the UK this year. We credit these successes to the strong foundation gained under George's tutelage in Shanghai for so many years.

With one word "violin" there arises an image of an excellent and brilliant musician who puts his dreams up into voice of a human heart. Though practicing violin as well as viola takes alot of patience it is worth it!

About George

Hi,
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.
