I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument. Not just how to play the instrument but working on ...

Music is a gift for everyone to enjoy and it deserves nothing less than your best effort – my philosophy:
My goal is to provide quality musical instruction in a positive and supportive environment, for my students to achieve a degree of technical facility appropriate to their personal musical goals, and to find joy and interest in the process of learning and practicing. I will always be supportive of a student’s musical journey and personal enrichment, but ultimately their success and fulfillment will depend on their individual efforts in lessons and individual practice. While technical improvement is a primary focus of lessons, above all, I want the process of music making to be an enjoyable and positive experience! I believe music lessons should be enriching for the mind and body and never detrimental or negative.

About Will

Hello! My name is Will - I have been playing the violin for 17+ years and have been playing professionally in regional orchestras since 2012. I am passionate about music and and want to help others improve their playing and find joy through the violin!

"This year is my 9-year old granddaughter's first step in learning how to play a musical instrument and she chose the violin. We knew that music lessons would be essential to her learning to appreciate her violin. I searched the internet and reviewed several teaching sites before I discovered Elisa's site. After reading about Elisa's experience along with few reviews, I decided to sign Lia up. I found Elisa to be very caring, personable, skilled and professional. My granddaughter is very excited and very happy that she has Elisa for her violin teacher. I highly recommend Elisa!"

"At 60 plus I'm pretty set in my ways. But after 40 some years of not playing a violin I purchased a new one and found Nikita. He has worked with me trying to correct bad habits. Teaching proper handling, finger placement, notes, bow hold and care. Nikita works with children and the ELDERLY and everyone in between. His patience and passion for music is great. I highly recommend this person. He is not only a highly trained and gifted musician with many years of experience but also an excellent teacher. I value his skills and his friendship."

How Are French Violins Made?

Violins as we know them today really started to evolve from the 16th century. In fact, Andrea Amati, the patriarch of that violin making family, was born in 1505, although it wasn’t until 1555 that he created his first violin at the request of an Italian statesman by the name of Lorenzo De’ Medici. By the end of the century, his grandson, Nicolo, had been born and it was he who would eventually become the most eminent member of the family. They hailed from Cremona, a city in the north of …
