Private Violin Teacher

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 ...

Mr. Victor is teaching both of my kids, one guitar and the other piano. They are beginners, and he is very patient but keeps a good pace. I feel like they are learning a lot. He is a true music teacher and knows his stuff!
Victoria W.
It was awesome! Great pace and great mix of technical and practical.
Laura
Victor has been an amazing teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable not only about violin, but about practically every other stringed instrument there is. He also has an amazing grasp of musical theory, and has really helped me learn about my instrument. He has also helped me grow as a student. He keeps me interested in the music, and still challenges me to keep improving. I have had other music teachers, but he is definitely the best I've had.

Kiran L.
I started learning violin from Dr. Dimitry 1 month ago because, unlike other teachers, I found Dr. Dimitry very honest in specifying the subtleties and nuances, especially the snaggy ones which make the violin one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Although his classes were very expensive, I chose him as he was a straightforward and experienced violinist and I never compromise on the quality of teaching. Also, being a doctoral student myself, I know what it means to earn a Ph.D. and that too in music.

Now, it has been one month, and I enjoy his classes. His analogies and examples are an apt way of understanding the techniques of playing the violin. Though Dr. Dimitry is an advanced violinist, he is very patient with absolute beginners. To sum up, I would highly recommend him to people who are very serious and determined to learn and practice the violin.
Sharon
A true professional and a great teacher! I have been taking violin lessons now for 6 months with Dr. Dimitri Olevsky, having switched to Dimitri after having had a mediocre experience with my previous teacher. Wow…what a difference. Dimitri ably blends his extensive knowledge, talent, and seriousness about his craft with a witty sense of humor. He is able to simplify the complexities of violin technique so that it is truly feels accessible. Highly recommended.
Alexander
Dr. Olevsky was immediately able to improve my playing with direct, practical advice. He is concerned with efficient practice and in making the maximum amount of progress in the time that one has. He is highly knowledgable about the audition process and the real day to day of being a professional performing violinist. I have been playing for 15+ years and find Dimitry's lessons very challenging and stimulating.

I love teaching violin! I have been playing violin since 5th grade and have been teaching it publicly since 2015. I teach from a traditional, classical style. For beginners/intermediates, I focus on finger positions, bow control, and note reading to provide students with a strong foundation to continue learning well. For intermediates/advanced, I start focusing more on the nuances of music and the violin so they can grasp the wonders and joys of music. I push my students to do the best they can to reach their potential. I love teaching, and I love my students.

"Mrs. Beckley has taught my daughter how to play the violin for several months learning notes, chords, and beginners' techniques. She is always patient as she directs my daughter's lessons. Every week she gives assignments to be practiced before the next lesson. Mrs. Beckley always says, "You are welcome to suggest music that you would like to learn instead of the assigned music piece that I assign for practice."

She said that if we have trouble finding sheet music, she will write it out for my daughter to learn. Mrs. Beckley is a very skilled instructor, and my daughter agrees that she gives great direction with skilled consistency."

Introduction to Violin Music Notes

The violin is often considered by musicians to be one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Its roots trace back many centuries and it was clearly a definitive instrument in shaping classical music all over the world. One of the reasons it is considered a difficult instrument to learn is that it's a fretless string instrument, making violin music notes appear to be inexact, yet fingering must still be done with precision. The reward for learning this sweet-sounding elegant instrument, ho …
