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.<br><br>

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.<br><br>

Our extensive roster of qualified and pre-screened teachers will come in handy as you search for local instructors. All TakeLe
ssons 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!<br><br>

Joshua C. Atlanta, GA

I began playing violin in addition to viola in high school. I enjoy the faster response of the violin and the way its higher pitches can soar over the top of the other strings, though I still prefer to play the 'inner' parts in an ensemble.

About Joshua

*** Studio Equipment *** I teach in the Education Building of a Church that has individual classrooms, where lessons will be held, all of which are off a common area where parents can wait during the lesson. *** Travel Equipment *** I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate. *** Specialties *** I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public

I really like Michael's method! My 5-year old started violin lessons, and after attending a few sessions I decided to take hybrid violin and octave viola ("chin cello") lessons from Michael as well. So far so good, and my kid has a good and fun time learning in-studio... *and* practicing at home!

I knew that I had made a good choice for a teacher when I saw some of Micheal's techniques. working with my son Alex. If Alex is not getting it, Micheal will try several ways to get the point across. From Warm ups to changing hands to learn a new piece. He does what it takes so that the student excels. He also infuses his personal experiences into the lesson when appropriate.
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.

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 assistant principal in the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Whether you're a complete beginner looking to make a cheap, factory-made instrument more grateful to play, or a more advanced student wanting to customize your "forever" instrument to suit you and you alone, the basic knowledge of how to set up a violin is worth grasping even if your interest doesn't extend much beyond curiosity and a love of tinkering with things.

Sad Violin Music That Will Bring You to Tears
An effective practice routine incorporates a variety of things, including scales, long tones, technical exercises, sight reading, and repertoire work. However, there is one other very important habit that musicians should incorporate into their regular practice routine, no matter what their age or skill level: listening to other performers. Why is listening to other performers such an integral part of musicianship? For one, it exposes you to a wide array of timbres, techniques, and musical idea

Are You Making the Most of Your Violin Practice?
Gifted musicians don't appear from nowhere fully-formed and ready to take to the concert platform.  For every 45-minute concerto or 90-minute recital you hear, hours of hard work have gone into every note, every phrase, and even how the music is approached, learned, and memorized! It may seem strange to say that proper practice is the most nerve-wracking element of mastering your violin, but if you don't know how to structure the session, how can you ever be sure that you're working on the righ
