Manlius, NY

About Edgar

I taught my first private lesson when I was 17 while completing my undergraduate courses at the Yerevan conservatory in Armenia. I became convinced from the start that any person, of any age, can lear
n the violin if the teacher is flexible in their approach. After teaching for many years, and performing with the Armenian National Opera House Orchestra, I was lucky enough to come to the United States where I earned my artistic diploma and my Master’s Degree in violin performance (from Syracuse University). Currently, I am a member of the Syracuse Symphoria, Allentown Symphony Orchestra and the Tri City Opera. I also perform frequently with Binghamton Philharmonic. Although my background was centered on the Russian school of violin, I prefer to use a blend of many styles and approaches with my students. After coming to the United States, I studied the English school of violin and took many string pedagogy classes. I became familiar with the Suzuki method and approach and look forward to becoming a certified Suzuki teacher in the near future.

*** Lesson Details ***
My student’s lessons are tailored to their individual needs. Most often I use Essential Elements and Suzuki for beginners. I also like to incorporate pieces from the Russian book “The Beginner Violinist”. Wohlfahrt and Kaiser etudes follow while students enter the Suzuki book 2 and 3 levels. I also help students to learn orchestra music and help them to prepare for auditions and competitions. My advanced students have worked on concertos such as Bruch, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, and Khachaturian. The most important things for me when teaching a student is that they develop a natural and comfortable posture with their violin and that playing their violin becomes fun and enjoyable for them. Whether you are looking to audition for a music conservatory, or would like to learn the basics of violin for fun, I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you to help you reach your goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students provide music stands, instruments and literature

Jessica T.

Manlius, NY

About Jessica

I currently play with the Syracuse Symphoria Orchestra and teach at my home. Although I only have regular times as listed on Mondays and Tuesdays, due to our symphony schedule, I am willing to arrange
flexible lesson times on other days around my rehearsal schedule if needed. I received my Bachelors Degree in Viola Performance from Syracuse University, and my Associates Degree in Violin Performance at Onondaga Community College (originally a violinist). I absolutely love music and want my students to love it too! I am always impressed to see how music positively affects people in their day to day lives. I am patient, versatile, and can work with the most casual beginner, to an advanced student who may want to take college auditions. I especially love animals, children, coffee, and books.

*** Lesson Details ***
I help students set personal goals and design lessons to meet those goals. Together, the student and I choose a practice amount time and routine.
Beginning students can expect to learn proper posture, basic music theory, aural skills, and one octave scales. They may play some easy solos in Suzuki Book 1.
Students will them progress to two octave scales, Wolfhart or Mazas etudes, and may play works from Handel, Vivaldi, and Telemann.
Advanced Violin students will work through Kreutzer and Dont Etudes, complete their 3 octave scales and arpeggios, and work on larger student concertos such as Bruch, Mendelssohn, and Mozart concertos.
Advanced Viola students work on Bruni etudes and either the Walton,Bartok or Hindemith Concertos.

Students should have their own instrument, music stand, pencil, and notebook. They should expect to purchase a shoulder rest and lesson book(s) after our first few lessons.

Standard Classical Repertoire
Orchestral Excerpts
Russian School and Suzuki Style
Appreciation for different learning styles and abilities

AMAZING Violin Teacher!

Jessica has been teaching my daughter violin for about a year now. The progress she has made is amazing. Jessica is very patient with her, as she was only 6 years old when she started. She comes well prepared, is encouraging, and we have good communication. I highly recommend Jessica as a teacher for anyone with a young child who is interested in music. She really is able to connect with my daughter, and she looks forward to Jessica's lesson each week.

Couldn't ask for a better teacher

I was in sixth grade when my mom first got a private violin teacher for me, and, admittedly, I was very reluctant; up until that point, I had never thought about pursuing violin too seriously, and I was terrified that my teacher would be an emotionless and mean person who would expect nothing less than perfection. However, the first time I met Jessica, I realized how great of a teacher and how sweet of a person she really was. She helped me realize my full potential, and always motivated me to practice so that I could improve. She opened so many doors for me, and I wouldn't be anywhere near as successful with my playing without her. Thanks to Jessica, violin has become such a significant part of my life, and I will definitely continue to play for years to come.

Highly Recommend

We are very fortunate to have found Jessica a year ago, She teaches our 3 children (ages 15, 12 and 10) and they have really grown to love the instrument and their lessons with her. We've found her to be gentle, encouraging and patient with a sense of humor in her teaching. She is knowledgeable and highly skilled. And this is apparent in how far the kids have come in their playing. Their school's music teacher has really commended them on this.

Most importantly they love her and their lessons with her and this is very much appreciated since I know my two younger ones are sensitive and would rather discontinue lessons than be with a teacher they don't like.

About Christian

Christian D. has been playing saxophone for seventeen years. Growing up in Rochester, N.Y, he attended Churchville-Chili High School and attempted to take every music class his school had to offer. He
was always very involved in his school’s music program. He took private lessons with Mr. Terry Bacon (a graduate from Eastman School of Music) for eight years before going to college. He completed his BM in Music Education and Saxophone Performance at SUNY Fredonia. There he studied classical with Dr. Wildy Zumwalt and jazz with Bruce Johnstone.

 At Fredonia, Christian was involved in everything the music program had to offer. He participated in major ensembles, a saxophone quartet, saxophone ensemble, a big band, and a jazz sax combo in addition to his regular course load. He was a founding member of the Bogus on Temple Blues Band that actively played in the Fredonia area for a year and a half. He is also a member of the musical fraternity of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.
Christian recently completed his MM in Jazz performance at New Jersey City University. There he studied with Bob Malach, Joel Weiskopf, Walt Weiskopf, Allen Farnham, and Nathan Eklund. He is actively playing gigs in the New York City and suburban area while at school.

He has participated in the Roberts Wesleyan Honors Band, Hochstein School of Music Junior Wind Symphony, All-County Band, and New York Area All State band, as well as performing as a soloist for the All-County orchestra his junior year in high school.
Christian has received many awards to merit his efforts in music. Some of these include the Eastman Award given to high school juniors who plan to major in music and who excel above others in school. He also received a $200 scholarship for his jazz-playing ability from the Independence Jazz reunion.

It has been a wonderful experience having Christian provide remote lessons for our son Jesse. Had to look for a saxophone teacher for our son just after a year on he instrument because his school teacher (whom he really liked) left the school and the new teacher was not very good (for our son's needs). Decided to do online after not finding anyone local that was available on his schedule. I was a little skeptical about online teaching being an ex-musician, but I have been very pleased with how Christian manages online teaching. He uses some very powerful tools to manage and track our son's performance, and his remote lessons seem to be very effective despite the distance. I think the ultimate proof of how well it has worked was when our son's original teacher contacted us to say that she was doing private lessons now and could start teaching our son again. We asked him what he wanted to do and he said "I want to stay with Christian". To me that says it all!

Christian is one of the best online teachers you could find. He's highly disciplined, and always maintains schedule. His teaching techniques shows his overall expertise in all his offerings. Christian is always upbeat and friendly. He always follows up after lessons to go over the areas covered and what the student should focus on prior to the next lesson. You cannot go wrong trying him out.

Daniel M.

Syracuse, NY

About Daniel

My primary goal is to make music a fun, stress-free, expressive outlet for my students. I hold a B.A. in Music Performance from Canisius College and have extensive performance and teaching experience
in concert band, orchestral, musical theatre, and chamber ensembles. I have served as principal oboist of the Canisius College Concert Band and Canisius College Chamber Orchestra, as well as served on the faculty of the Community Music School of Buffalo, and the Canisius College tutoring center (as a music theory tutor). Currently, I am pursuing a Master's in Mental Health Counseling from SUNY Oswego, specializing in emotional struggles faced by musicians, including performance anxiety, stage fright, muscle tension, and fear of emotional vulnerability. My students will gain confidence in their performance ability, learning not only the techniques of their instrument, but strategies to reduce performance anxiety to perform music as it should be: fun, expressive, and moving.
