I want to serve as a supportive and instructional figure that helps cultivate an appreciation of music for all students. In order to do this, I believe it's important to prioritize personal student progress rather than subscribe to a fixed game plan. That being said I take on a relaxed adaptive teaching style that tailors to the student. It's my hope that all students feel comfortable working and discussing music topics with me as I believe thoughtful conversations, whether straightforward or abstract, is an essential learning technique.

About Kristin

I am a classically trained violist and string instrument enthusiast, born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I attended and graduated from Western Michigan University with a BM in music performance and have since worked as a music teacher in San Diego. I am the strings director at Double Peak Scho

In my one hour of comprehensive teaching, students learn extensively the techniques of the violin, including tone production, vibrato, musicality and pieces of music which are chosen from standard violin literature or Suzuki books. The whole idea is to get students to look at the whole learning process as a fun activity, and very soon they acquire the ability to produce beautiful sounds, correct intonation and strong vibrato. In addition to the above, I conduct some some ear-training exercises to improve intonation as well.

About Nader

I am a violinist and composer. I have trained more than 1200 students in more than twenty five years of my teaching carrier. *** Lesson Details *** Each lesson includes scales, arpeggios, etudes, duets and a new piece of music from different eras of music. I emphasize on tone production, correc

Nader was fantastic! I took Violin lessons for a few years from a couple different teachers, and he taught me new, interesting things I'd never learned before. He's also very patient and nice.
Carolina V.
He is very patient and has excellent communication skills. I have no knowledge of how to play the violin or music of any kind. After my first lesson I strongly feel he will be my private instructor for many years to come. I left with proper technique of how this instrument is to be cared for and good posture when practicing. He also informed me of the books we will be incorporating into my lessons. Most importantly homework is given and he is very patient and explains everything at your level.
Kira
I was very pleased with my first lesson with Nader. He is very kind and patient. We covered some basic points with what we'll be covering for my lessons with the cello. His instructions and explanations of technique is very clear I feel my lessons with him will be very beneficial and enjoyable.

We absolutely love and adore her as an instructor. We enjoyed her so much we scheduled a lesson the very next day. She is warm, friendly and patient. I am amazed by how much she taught my daughter in just two lessons. We look forward to having her as an instructor for years. Absolutely the best instructor ever!
Nathan S.
Shahrzad has a way of keeping my 11 y.o. son engaged throughout the entire lesson. He has fun, but at the same time he is being challenged. He practices without us even asking,. He will start orchestra in middle school this year and I know he will be ready!
Shirley Y.
Shahrzad was excellent. She teaches with great passion and knows what to point out on my weakness. Not only is she thorough, she also knows when to demonstrate the piece of music. I really enjoyed my lesson with her. Thank you.

What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle? Some say it just depends on who is picking up the instrument . . . others might say a violin has strings while a fiddle has "strangs." But if you're looking to play a hoedown, a breakdown, a sweet and heartfelt waltz, or an old-timey reel, then you're looking for some FIDDLE lessons . . . and I am just the person to deliver! I've been a performing bluegrass fiddler since 2003 and have helped many students discover the joys and satisfaction of fiddling. See my profile under "fiddle" for more information.

About Julie

I've been performing as a fiddler in bluegrass bands since 2003, and have absolutely loved my own journey as a musician! A lifelong musician, I started on viola at age 9 and played in school orchestra through high school and on into college, even as I earned my degree in secondary English Education

Julie is absolutely wonderful! She’s extremely patient and very talented. I was only able to take fiddling lessons for a relatively short amount of time (less than a year) but I feel that I walked away with an excellent start. Can not recommend enough!
Jennifer
Julie is an amazing fiddle teacher! It is intimidating to take lessons as an adult and she made me feel very comfortable from day one. She is fun and has a laid-back, warm personality. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn fiddle!
Ally
Julie is an amazing teacher! She tells you what you need to improve in a gentle way and is always enthusiastic about any progress you make, no matter how small.

"Dustin Newbold has been my violin teacher for nearly eight years.
He is an accomplished musician and outstanding teacher, always patient, encouraging, and professional. He brought me through the very early stages of the violin as a beginner student, to now playing first violin in the community orchestra.
He has not only helped me become a better musician, but has been very knowledgeable in bringing me through the rough times of bowing, tuning, and even selecting the appropriate violin, strings, and accessories.
Dustin has the sensitivity to understand the student's level of ability and skill, and he creates a path for improvement. Lessons are always challenging and fun.
I highly recommend Dustin to any student who is serious about learning music, and especially to those to aim to be proficient on their instrument."
