Violin Lessons in Atlanta, GA

Music has always been one of Atlanta's claims to fame. Great talent has emerged from this city, and certainly makes it shine: Usher, Toni Braxton, OutKast, The Black Crowes, Collective Soul, John Mayer and Ludacris have all come from Atlanta's music scene.

For those who want to get started with music, popular instruments include the guitar, piano, drums and the violin. The violin in particular poses challenges that aren’t seen with other instruments; for example, it needs to be played at a precise angle that can be difficult for beginners to learn. In order to ensure proper playing habits, taking private violin lessons with a great teacher is necessary.

Our extensive roster of qualified and pre-screened teachers will come in handy as you search for local instructors. All TakeLessons instructors complete an extensive interview process, including a background check to ensure your safety. We only hire the best of the best, so you’ll be learning from the top talent in Atlanta!

To get started, search by subject and location online, or call us at 800-252-1508 to speak with one of our student counselors. And don’t worry - your first lesson is covered by our 100% Money Back Guarantee, so you can sign up at no risk!

So why wait? Call TakeLessons today or book online to take that next step toward mastering the violin!

She is amazing violinist and teacher. Best in Atlanta. She was trained by incredible violinists in Europe and I love her sense of humor. Don't settle for unqualified teachers, just listen to her recordings and read her qualifications. Four degrees... a doctorate etc.

Kristin T.

Lawrenceville, GA

I teach my students the Russian Method of playing so they can play with confidence and I help my student develop their musical artistry.

About Kristin

Teaching Style:

In my lessons I emphasize both technical skill and musical creativity. I use the Russian Method to instill my students with good technique and tone and I make sure that my students are confident on their scales and etudes. I try to chose pieces for my students that encourage artistic expression and I aim to help my students develop their own musical creativity.

Musical Experience:

I teach and perform on the violin, viola, and cello. I was a principal in the Gwinnett County Youth Symphony Orchestra, assistant principal in the Kendall Youth Symphony Orchestra, and an a
ssistant principal in the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra. Currently I play violin in the Georgia State University Orchestra, perform composer's new works in the Atlanta area, play violin in contemporary worship bands, and I am also a sectional coach for Couch Middle School. I am completing my Bachelors degree in Music Education at Georgia State University and I hope to soon teach orchestra in the public school system.

I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts.

Sara T.

Buford, GA

I teach using ideas from the Suzuki method but I'm flexible to fit the needs of my students. Music should be fun and rewarding yet teach life lessons such as diligence and confidence. My specialty is classical music but I am able to teach different genres of music. I feel that classical music is very important and I require my students to learn a few classical pieces. However, I love when a student gets excited over a piece of music and I encourage them to learn different genres.

About Sara

I have been playing piano and violin for 14 years. During that time I have had the opportunity to play first violin with the Erie Junior Phil Harmonic and also in their various string ensembles. I preformed and studied with them for seven years, four of those spent in the main orchestra. I performed violin alongside with the Erie Phil Harmonic three separate times and also the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony. I have also performed violin in the district and regional orchestra for two years and played in the pit orchestra for community theater. I have accompanied on the piano for several choirs, in
cluding a local high school and two churches where I was employed as Director of Music. I have always loved music and teaching just came naturally. In my opinion, music is a part of everyone and needs to be expressed. It should be fun and rewarding yet teaching life lessons such as diligence, time-management, and confidence. My specialty is classical music but I am able to teach different genres of music.
