I focus on note reading and music theory, in addition to technical studies. I encourage chamber music and will often pair up students to play duets and trios.

About Mari

Welcome to my music studio! This will be a fun, incredible way to start or continue your music instruction. I have been a private violin and piano instructor since 1991. I took a break in 2005 while my kids were little. Now that they have grown up a bit, I am so excited to come back to this!

Mari was an awesome instructor, and very kind.

I absolutely loved learning from Mari for my piano lessons! As an adult learner, I felt like my brain doesn't work as fast as it used to, so learning a new instrument was difficult, but Mari completely caters each lesson to my learning speed and maximized my abilities. She takes into accounts the areas and types of music I wanted to learn and helped me to achieve being able to play that type of music. I also loved and appreciated that she works around my busy work schedule and accommodating lessons when plans change throughout the week. I would highly recommend Mari as a music teacher to anyone interested in learning a new instrument at all ages!

Private Violin Teacher

Recently graduated from Juilliard, I've been teaching violin and viola for five years, and welcome students of all levels and ages. My background is firmly classical, but additionally I also love fiddle music and give students songs from many genres to learn, arranging upon request. I'm currently a doctoral student at USC, and I work part-time locally as a violinist in the YMF Debut Orchestra. I am also glad to help students with recording, video editing and social media.

About Alexander

As a violin teacher, I always aim to set goals for students, to guide students towards them, and to be direct as possible so far as is appropriate. I also try to stay results-oriented throughout the process. Even if not all of a student’s progress is directly attributable to me, the most important

I really appreciated Alexander teaching me violin. He was basically my first instructor and he was always patient and motivating. He accommodated my unique needs as an adult beginner and brought me far in a short time. He was a little challenged to balance teaching with his heavy school load, but I appreciated his willingness to take the time to teach and help others.

Private Violin Teacher

Violin is my speciality. Although my focus is mainly on classical music, I can also teach a little bit of fiddle, pop, and jazz. My focus is on forming good habits while avoiding the bad. The student will learn how to listen to music intently and intelligently, how to read treble clef, and most importantly, how to shape and perform the pieces learned. All lessons should be approached with a diligent attitude while having fun. Artistry is birthed when passion and consistency collide!

Zachary is a professional violinist graduated with a bachelor's degree in music performance from Shenandoah University. He enjoys teaching classical music, fiddle music, and pop music. He has performed extensively as a soloist, with bands, and with various orchestras. He has taught over 30+ private

Great teacher, very helpful and patient. Can't recommend him enough!
Izaki
Dan is a fantastic teacher! I studied with him when I was younger and returned after 13 years or so. He is very flexible and will tailor the lesson to your individual needs. Dan is also very perceptive and thorough in his approach, which really helps fine tune your playing. Highly recommend!
Jessica
Dan puts a big emphasis on technique and it will likely make for a better player in the long run. Lessons have lots of examples and he checks for understanding frequently.

Playing the violin wasn't originally very fun for me. I didn't enjoy practicing or learning music until my parents bought some sheet music for popular songs, and I would play along with them. This really made playing the violin enjoyable, and this new love for playing made me stick with it. I want my students to have fun while also learning valuable techniques that will be beneficial to their success with the instrument. This is executed through the combination of classical repertoire, scales and etudes, and pieces/songs chosen by the student.

About Adam

When I was first starting to play the violin, I didn't really enjoy it. I was often told I wasn't good enough and I would never amount to anything with it. It really took the fun out of playing. I ended up taking lessons from a fantastic teacher, who saw my potential, and really gave me a love of m

His previous teacher did nothing to teach or improve his skills that I honestly went in to our first class with low expectations.

"Mikaela is not only an excellent musician but an outstanding music teacher, a rare combination. I have been taking violin lessons from her for quite some time now, and I am amazed at how much of a difference she has made in my efforts to pick up the instrument as a total beginner.

She has great observational abilities to immediately notice errors in form or movement, all the while maintaining calm and complete patience. She also has gift for suggesting corrections with analogy and imagery that has been very helpful in my experience.

I would highly recommend her."
