Violin Lessons In Queen Creek, AZ

By Tiffany W. - Queen Creek Violin Teacher

My name is Tiffany Taylor and I am a violin instructor in the Town of Queen Creek, Arizona, where we pride ourselves on keeping our country feel in the middle of the city! Taking violin lessons in Queen Creek is a great way to keep our country roots alive. Learning the fiddle means an opportunity to perform music in the nearby rodeo and all the special town events and talent shows. Pieces such as The Devil Went Down To Georgia and Orange Blossom Special always get the crowd on their feet!

By being so close to the city, you can choose to go the classical route as well. I have personally participated in a large number of drama performances as a part of their live orchestra. It is really rewarding to be a part of a cast and become a part of their art through the talent of music. I even got to play in a performance here locally with Lindsey Stirling because I have been so active in the performing community! Talk about star struck!

We have several close community colleges that offer strong orchestra programs that are available to the public to participate and perform in. There are many schools that offer orchestra classes that really help students find a sense of community and friendship and a place they can feel they belong. I played for Basha High School, which is conducted by Ajay Patel; a highly successful cellist who has been the private teacher and school teacher to one of the gals in the up and coming country group FireFly which has opened for Country Thunder recently! Within their stellar program, there are chair tests to encourage the students to keep aiming higher, which makes it such a great idea to have private violin lessons in Queen Creek through TakeLessons!

I have participated in all of the programs mentioned, all the while maintaining lessons with my private tutor. Lessons are an invaluable way to quickly gain knowledge and I can tell you from personal experience that my dedication to private lessons is the sole reason I am successful and can have so many fun experiences with the violin today. Teaching others to have the same love and passion for the violin is something I look forward to every day.

Taking violin lessons in Queen Creek is the perfect forum to begin a relationship with music and to benefit from the expertise of a knowledgeable teacher. I consider violin to be a part of my lifestyle. I have formed lifelong friendships and have so many memories with them growing up in orchestra together. Whether you're playing the fiddle at a rodeo, the violin for an orchestra, or simply enjoying performances from some of our great local talent, I know you won't regret it!

About Alysia
Music has been my passion for the past 18 years. I started piano when I was 5 yrs old and the violin when I was 7 yrs old. I continued with lessons until I entered the Detroit High School for Performing Arts. During my sophomore year, I took additional classes at Wayne Sate University for music theory and in my senior year I took on my first piano students. I have been teaching piano, violin and music theory ever since. I have also choreographed and taught dance for many years as dancing has been with me since my first lessons at 4 yrs old. My focus is in ballet, tap and jazz. I am a graduate from Eastern Michigan University where I was actively a part of the music and dance program.

*** Lesson Details ***
I remember my piano teacher and I try to keep her balance of fun and learning. I am a very fun teacher, but I do expect my stu
dents to work, and learn. I introduce learning games and have contests. I also regularly quiz my students. For the younger students I like to inform the parents about what they should be practicing and of any theory exercises they may have for the week. Music is a rewarding and enjoyable passion that I try to pass on to my students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own instruments. I will provide the first books, but they will have to provide the books that come after and I will assist them with that.

*** Specialties ***
I've been doing ballet, tap and jazz for 16 years and i taught all of them for about two years. I teach classical piano and violin.

Alysia is my 7yr old son's violin teacher. I send him for few lessons to boost up his learning at school. My son loved it. This review is based on my son's interest and opinion on Alysia's teaching. She is friendly, kind and knowledgeable. We will go again when we plan him to continue violin learning.

I'm a beginner student with no music experience. She is very patient and enthusiastic. I was able to understand some of the basics of music beats and notes on the first lesson thanks to Cathy. She also thought me the proper position to hold the violin. I'm very excited to continue my four lessons with her and I couldn't choose a better instructor than her. You can see her passion for teaching violin. I highly recommend her, especially for beginner students.

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.

In my opinion, having been an educator in the Isaac School District for many years, Mr. Quintana exhibits excellent teaching techniques and strategies to enable the learner to be successful. He is professional, prepared, courteous, and prompt. For the past 6 years, Mr.Quintana has been my cello instructor. The environment that he creates as an educator provides an excellent foundation for continued learning. Mr. Quintana's knowledge of string instruments and piano are superb.

Victor is a great instructor and a great person. He is wonderful with my young son, who was an absolute beginner when he started lesson with Victor at age 8. My son has a learning disability that makes it harder for him to read music and process instructions. Victor worked with all of that with patience and respect. Now my son can play beautiful songs and perform in front of others. I believe that learning music has also helped my son become better at reading, math, and thinking! Most of all, he feels successful about his guitar skills, which adds to his confidence. I cannot thank Victor enough!

I have been playing the violin for 15 years and teaching for 7 years. My curriculum includes a heavy emphasis on sound quality and correct, relaxed technique, followed by musicality and a well rounded music education. My goal is for students to be well versed not only in how to play violin, but also be knowledgeable in music history and theory. I believe that students should enjoy their music lessons while utilizing their individual learning style.

About Brianna
I graduated from the University of Idaho in May 2014. I earned my degree in Instrumental Music Education and have been teaching privately for since 2008. My main instrument is violin, and I am qualified to teach viola, and cello. Before moving to Arizona, I taught many violin students through my own private studio and through the University of Idaho Preparatory Division. My students ranged from ages 3 to 50. I have taught private instrumental lessons to grades 2-8 at a private school and I currently work as a full time 5th grade classroom teacher at a Great Hearts school. I also run the instrumental music program at the same school for grades 6-12. I continued their intermediate orchestra program and started the beginning orchestra program in the 2015-2016 school year. In the 2016-2017 school year, I piloted a successful beginning instrum
ents club. The majority of my experience is with students age 3 through 9th grade.

I primarily teach lessons in the Gilbert area where I teach full time. I also accept lessons in Tempe and Mesa. Students outside of this area are welcome to travel to my house in Tempe. My travel availability is limited, but my home studio availability is far more flexible.

I've been teaching violin for 40 years and my students have gone on to win China National Championships. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand violin basics and as time goes on you'll be able to play smoothly. I taught violin at university level for 15 years in China. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I have extensive knowledge of German, Italian and French languages which I use to draw critical attention to tempo, dynamic and expression markings which may be overlooked. I relate intonation with a personal relationship intervals and visual space, and the finger board which allows students to foster a mental map of the scale.

I also have perfect pitch and I train my students on how to be as discriminate as possible in their auditory skills so they develop their sense of pitch and harmony to the most fluent degree possible.

About Mohamed-Aly
Hello! I'm Mo! I love teaching violin and I try to make each lesson new and unique so that you are looking forward to the next one. There are so many aspects about playing violin that I like to talk about, show, and use examples from everyday life, such as finding rhythm in household appliances to finding pitch and harmony in birds.

I also like to prepare duets to play with my students, have some classical music listening sessions and to always bring students closer to the mentality of a performer while reminding my students what music means to everyone and why we play music.

When it comes to violin I use both book and audio. I want to help my students learn to not only read the music but to also hear and feel it. I have been teaching this way for the last few years and found that my students have a deeper understanding of the music by learning the see with their ears. Each student is tasked with coming up with goals that they want to reach, goals their parents would like for them to reach and from there a personalized path for learning is created and followed.

About April
I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music between schools, the San Diego Youth Orchestra. I currently work with several students with special needs such as Autism and other Neurological delays. My son is Autistic and music was a great way for him to express himself. I found that the other children I work with on the spectrum have more abilities to express themselves through music then with words. I also work with students that are not yet comfortable with themselves and getting them to breath and enjoy the music helps bring them out of their shells.

I regularly find myself jamming o
ut with another music instructor every chance we get. Music is a great relief and enjoyment that I want to share with as many people as I can. I am currently in college getting my Bachelors degree in History with a minor in Music.
