Hey there!
Violin is the first instrument I ever tried to play starting at age ten, mostly because I loved movie scores and grandiose classical sounds. Since that beginning, I have played in school orchestras every year after and a few years spent in college level symphonies. Throughout these rewarding, fourteen years of experience, I have held different positions as part of the orchestras such as rehearsal manager. I have trained countless peers throughout the years. Also, I was majoring in music for three semesters in college but then I switched to engineering.
Anywho... I know the tricks and concepts to make violin fun and easy(it gets easier eventually I swear). Any age group suits me, as I am very adaptable to different students' needs. Reading music, as well as interpreting what it wants your body/mind to perform, can be explained in countless manners.
Before we can make music we need:
1) RHYTHM!!! -keep a beat and count subdivisions
2) Notes

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.

Private Violin Teacher

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

I believe that every person is able to play the violin at some level. My goal as the teacher is to communicate knowledge in such a way that the student becomes more self-aware. Awareness is the key to advancement and overall success on the instrument. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.

Marilena
I am so excited to take lessons with Jordana! She is incredibly helpful and patient and has really helped me with my setup and playing. She's taught me so much about styles other than classical (she taught me how to chop and how to read a chart), classical technique, and performing. I highly recommend lessons with Jordana!

"I highly recommend Jill Good as a violin teacher

Taking violin classes with Jill Good has been a great experience for me. I wanted to learn how to play violin at the age of 26, but I was afraid of the difficulty. With her this was not a problem, she was an amazing teacher and has been able to teach me from the very beginner level. In one year I learnt much more than I even expected, I feel as if I have made a lot of progress. She also has the ability to connect with her students and her talent at teaching is truly superior, which makes it even more enjoyable to go to class and play violin around her! She is extremely dedicated and experienced and the most important thing is that she is also very patient, at least with me!
I admire her for her joy and love for violin, another of the things I am very thankful from her is that she came with me to the store and helped me to chose the right violin to buy and now I am so happy with my violin."

"My daughter started taking violin lessons with Elisa in January of 2014. She is by far the best music teacher that we've had! Elisa is very challenging but makes learning and playing fun. My 8 year old daughter has made leaps and bounds in music and can now read music after only a short 8 months of playing. My daughters bow hold and tone quality are absolutely excellent and it's because of Elisa! I would definitely recommend her as a teacher. You will not be disappointed."

Needless to say how challenging it was at first, but with her dedication, professionalism and friendly approach, I made a significant progress in about 7 months. I am so happy to have Concetta as my violin teacher and would definitely recommend her."
