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!

I'm an experienced and dedicated musician, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

I was initially skeptical about taking online music lesson for my son. But Nicholas is very methodical and very attentive so that being online does not deter the lesson quality. Highly recommend him.

David P.

Atlanta, GA

Suzuki method
Have been teaching 17 years

About David

I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities by members of their respective orchestras. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts. I continued theory lessons while in Boston at the New England Conservatory of Music. I attended Summer music programs at Apple Hill (New Hampshire) and Sewanee (Tennessee) and have extensive experience in orchestra, quartet, and chamber group environments.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist,
violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach Mice is also popular on the festival circuit on the Emerald Coast.

I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013, and currently perform weddings, and at various restaurants and events in the Atlanta area.

I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you fulfill your musical goals and ambitions. Happy Playing - Cheers! dp

The best.

Even to me (who is a beginner), it's clear that he understands music and its theory on a deeper level than most. He's been working to develop my basic technical skills (eg scales, chords, etc.) but also to learn songs that I love and listen to everyday. He's patient, friendly, not-rushed and just a generally all-around great teacher and great person. Highly recommend!!!

I had a great experience with David. He is really patient while also making you push your own limits. I learned a lot in the first class and I'm hooked.

He is very knowledgable about music and at times, I had to ask him to slow down and explain some of the terminology but at the same time it gave me the impetus to go and learn more. Loved the experience :)

Shalom B.

Atlanta, GA

Students will learn how to be creative in their hearing along with their theory and posture skills, they will be trained for performance levels that will be directed toward stage presence skills and professional musical body language. They will also be trained to look at their skills from a global perspective and have a universal approach to the concepts that are handled in class.

About Shalom

I have been teaching classical and church music for a long time. I follow both Suzuki and western classical, but I prefer the Suzuki method, I am in America right now to experiment and create a new genre of music where I want to mix traditional Indian music with American bluegrass music.

The other subject that I can teach is Hindi. I am Indian and since I did my education in India we had to do Hindi as a subject till high school. So I can teach the language up until the intermediate level.

I stay in New York and I take lessons with Micah online. At first I didnt know if it would work but it went beyond good. And Micah also got me a gig at a wedding. Micah was the siloist and I played in the ensemble in New York. He has a lot of connections.

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs
Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly
