Dan is a fantastic teacher! I studied with him when I was younger and returned after 13 years or so. He is very flexible and will tailor the lesson to your individual needs. Dan is also very perceptive and thorough in his approach, which really helps fine tune your playing. Highly recommend!

Come and play the violin! There is so much music out there, and if you can even sort of sing a melody, there is a way to get it into your fingers. If you are already playing and want to improve, or expand what you have, you can go for it!

Private Violin Teacher

Hi! I'm Michael Shingo C. and I am a violinist, pianist, and composer.

In my teaching, I emphasize efficient, goal-oriented practice, and provide a strong technical foundation while always keeping musicality and expression in mind. I encourage my students to develop problem-solving skills that will ultimately allow them to create their own interpretations about a piece of music. I believe that each student has a different learning style and, with this knowledge, I design a program of study specifically for them.

Learning music is all about tackling technical or musical problems in many different ways until we find an approach that works for you. As multi-instrumentalist who also writes music, I can offer many different perspectives on a single issue and draw from a wide range of knowledge that serves me in my daily creative pursuits.

**Please send me a message to discuss scheduling and location before booking.

About Michael

Hello I'm Michael! I am a violinist and composer with a diverse skill set and 17 years of experience. I learn and grow as I pass on my knowledge and constantly find ways to better serve my students and help them achieve their goals.

I have been a student of Michael’s for approximately 7 months. My only previous experience with violin had been one year in elementary school band class and 8 months with a private teacher. When my private teacher’s lesson schedule changed, I was introduced to Michael and was greatly impressed by his skill level and teaching style. I have learned so much more than I had expected in each lesson, like how to self-tune, use a metronome, shift, and various other techniques. Michael constantly offers feedback on how I can execute techniques better, and I feel that this helps me to learn more effectively. He is always challenging me by giving me harder pieces and scales. I have even been told by my high school orchestra conductor that I have improved so much and she is constantly surprised by how fast I am learning. I highly recommend having Michael as a teacher for anyone looking to learn how to play the violin.

Learning an instrument can open your mind to new insights in life, and just like with languages, will be much easier to comprehend at a younger age. If you're looking for violin lessons for your child, look no further. As a young person, I believe that I will not only be able to connect with younger students like no other, but also teach and instruct with more than nine years' experience in both orchestra and chamber orchestra across Fairfax and Loudoun County, all at an affordable price. With Superb Violin Lessons, your child can learn a beautiful instrument, have fun, and maybe even find themselves sitting in the first chair.

"Family Music Teacher

We have enjoyed having Maureen as our family’s music teacher. My son started taking flute lessons with Maureen in 2009 and advanced through the levels very quickly. He plays flute in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). He also plays saxophone and tried out and was selected for the Alameda County Honor Band. Maureen worked with him on jazz theory and improvisation and he plays in the jazz band at school. With Maureen, he worked through all six levels of Master Theory and is ready for the college level AP Music Theory at 14 years old. He also completed the MTAC (Music Teachers’ Association of California) Composer’s Today workbooks and used http://www.noteflight.com to write his own music and participate in composition contests. My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons with Maureen and has been doing a great job. She is playing classical music on violin in school and in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). On piano she is learning to play the blues and jazz, as well as learning theory and composition. Both of my children have been able to successfully participate in the LaHonda Summer Music Camp. We have had a great experience with Maureen throughout the past 5 years and have enjoyed seeing her each week."

How to Find the "Sweet Spot" On Your Violin

The violin can be a difficult instrument to master. Intonation is often challenging; unlike the guitar, there are no frets to guide the fingers, and even if all the notes are correct and in tune you're still left with the issue of tone. The purest and perfectly in-tune notes can still sound bad if they're played with poor tone. However, there are many methods and tricks to help your violin bowing, which can instantly improve your tone. 5 Points to Consider for Violin Bowing 1. Pre …
