Have you been playing for a long time, or have you never picked up the instrument before? Whether you are a child or an adult, I have a style of teaching for you. I've been playing since I was a child and have a special place in my heart for the is instrument. I actually began learning from a fiddle player and trained classically later. If you want to learn how to succeed in playing this rewarding and satisfying style, this is the place for you.
Are wondering why every time you hit a certain note, it squeaks, or crunches, or sounds glassy? Or maybe you can't quite read the notes. Perhaps you are no stranger to the instrument, but need improvement of musicianship, expression, etc. Let me help you master the skills you're trying to achieve. With my help, you can make breathtaking music!

About Kimberly

I grew up in a household of 9 where music was always center stage. We would sing as a family in different venues and were often called the VonTrapp family. I have enjoyed singing and performing from a young age. I began studying flute at age 8, after scoring highest in the harmony listening exam an

I have been working with Kim for a few weeks and I have learned a tremendous amount and can hear the difference every week as I progress. I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well. I actually tried a few vocal teachers and Kim with her wisdom and experience made it simple who to go with!!

Do you need help making steady progress and finding better solutions for your specific needs? I was a student who for 25 years had my fair share of struggle with practicing and progress. I get it! I am now a professional violinist and teacher of 11 years. Together, we will set realistic goals that you can implement successfully at home on your own time. I invite students of all ages, and of all levels (beginner-advanced). I hope to bring to you not just an improvement in your violin playing, but an enhanced sense of self and creativity through music making.

I took lessons from Yurie on violin as a secondary instrument when I attended Yale University. Yurie was an amazing teacher. I advanced more in half a year with her than I had ever learned in 4 years with other teachers. I only wish I had found her sooner! Her teaching approach is accessible, and very insightful. 10/10 would recommend.

Study with the Concertmaster of the San Antonio Symphony! Prizewinner of international violin competitions, Billboard-charting recording artist. I've taught at Rice University, UT Austin, TCU, and given many masterclasses in the US and abroad. My goal as a teacher is to make myself superfluous. I teach my students to find their own unique voice, not how to copy my style. My former teachers include Cho-Liang Lin, Linda Cerone, among many others.

I love teaching all aspects of violin, and a good teacher will listen to you before having an idea of what to say. If you want to do some deep work on technique, musicality, or mental stamina, we'll get right to it. Proficiency in reading music is a basic requisite for my fee to be worth your time.

About Eric

I'm very fortunate to be able to regularly collaborate with many incredible artists in my international career as a concertmaster, soloist, chamber musician, and recording artist. I've learned from everyone I've ever worked with, and this is especially true when it comes to my private students. As

Mr. Gratz has been amazing for my children. As a phenomenal violinist he is able to inspire them by his example. When he demonstrates a section of music, I see my children’s faces light up with excitement. As an excellent educator he tailors his instruction to the unique needs and personalities of each of my children. He exudes the perfect blend of excitement and discipline in his teaching. He is both demanding and caring in his expectations. It is a real privilege for our children to get to take lessons with Mr. Gratz.
Anthony
Cool guy, demanding teacher, great combination. Seriously, this guy knows his stuff. I leave every lesson with something new to work on for the next lesson and I know what I’m getting is some of the best there is. Anyone would be really fortunate to study with Eric, so I’m glad I’m able to every week.
Sharon
Eric is an exceptional violinist and teacher. I have taken lessons with him for about 4 years now, starting with in-home lessons and now online lessons due to covid. In my lessons, Eric really shines in teaching bow hold and nuanced bow strokes, as well as teaching musicality. Prior to Eric, I had taken lessons with about 7 or 8 different teachers, who were good in their own different ways, however had focused primarily on left hand technique. Eric showed me that there is so much more to playing and executing music at a high level. In lessons we discuss musical interpretations, something I had never had to do or think about before, much less vocalize. Eric also pushed me to play genres of music that were outside my comfort zone, so I have grown as a musician by better understanding different genres and not just the ones I am comfortable with. There is also something about having a good teacher/student relationship and interactions, which involve the expectations, pace of learning, and the ways in which a teacher instructs (which encompasses attitude, analogies, etc); Eric has a really good way of describing things, as well as putting enough of a fire under your butt to make you push harder. There is nothing that can replace having a teacher who can actually play and demonstrate, and not just talk about how a technique should be. Eric can PLAY. And in lessons, his ears are so good and quick they can hear and pick up on things like you wouldn’t believe, EVEN over online lessons! I also love that I was able to learn very high level etudes, like Paganini caprices, and he really knows them and can play them, so you have confidence in the way you approach the music and techniques. Whoever takes lessons with Eric is very lucky because his knowledge isn’t just walking around with your every day violin teachers, it’s really special.

As a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Colburn Conservatory, I look to pass on the great lessons and traditions of violin playing I've learned over the course of my career as a concert artist and pedagogue. We will work together to create a personalized curriculum, and progress at a pace that matches your comfort levels and your goals.

I've had the pleasure of teaching a regular private studio, and have given masterclasses nationally and internationally.

I love getting to know my students, and am very reachable outside of lesson times for questions, advice, and funny links! Please feel free to message me.
