Private Violin Teacher

Twenty years teaching experience. I teach violin and viola students of all ages. I like to help students find strategies to improve their practice and their playing, create beautiful, interesting, and musical sound, and notice the nuances within a piece and what they are capable of as musicians at any stage. In private lessons I also like to balance solo work with some attention to skills through etudes or bow work, which helps develop character of sound and the range of choices we have as musicians. Online format adds some challenge for teaching beginners. If parents can tune instruments or have comfort level either from some music training or a hands on approach to supporting beginners, contact me if you are interested. My comfort level for online lessons is geared more towards advanced beginners, intermediate and advancing students. Please contact me with any questions, happy to answer. I'm willing to teach occasional pops tunes, though teach mostly classical, some folk and ...

Ms. Carlson taught my middle school orchestra and she was my private viola instructor for many years. She is extremely skilled at playing a variety of instruments, and she is detail orientated as well as encouraging to all students. Her practice techniques are superb and I always enjoyed our lessons together. I would highly recommend her to anyone, regardless of skill level.
Wendy

I started playing violin at 3 years old. Wichita State University gave me the opportunity to get my Music Ed degree and start teaching lessons. I have taken over 500 lessons myself and played in many heavy gigging bands playing gigs almost every weekend. Improvising, Country, Jazz, and Rock are my specialties but I have played lots of Blues, Funk, and Latin jazz as well.

About Rob

Make sure you contact me about scheduling. I have other students and a job that sometimes changes week to week. I may have other times available. Let me know.

Jeff
Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.
Jeff
great first lesson. Personable and informative.
Lin
Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

Private Violin Teacher

I have 19 years of experience playing the violin, and have cherished every moment. Playing music is one of the most powerful and emotional experience an individual can have, and my goal is to help you along your musical journey wherever it may take you. I have taught ages 7-70, and am passionate about a variety of genres though my core training was in classical. I have worked with students in all stages of development, whether picking up the instrument for the first time or preparing for college auditions or international competitions.

Lessons will always be tailored with YOUR goals in mind, and I strive to make sure you come away from every lesson feeling excited and musically and intellectually stimulated.

I spent a number of my formative years studying violin remotely, long before the pandemic brought students to online platforms. I believe that online learning is just as good as traditional in-person instruction, without rigid schedules or geographic barriers.

Looking forward

Very good teacher, our daughter likes her and is motivated to get better.

I learned piano with her. She is a good teacher.
Eva B.
Laura is an amazing teacher - I could see it right away - and my daughter really opened up to her. It seems, however that my daughter may not be ready to study the piano just yet. We bought a 5-lesson package, so we will see if that changes between now and then. Either way, Laura was a great choice for our first piano instructor!

The student achieves what he wants by always getting his best version of what he decides to do.
I design a totally personalized method based on what the student wants to achieve. Since I'm from Colombia, I like to put some of my culture on the way I teach and the way I see music.
My main goal is to put the student at a point where he enjoys learning and also progresses based on his effort and interest. Enjoy life through music, enjoy music through life.....

"At 60 plus I'm pretty set in my ways. But after 40 some years of not playing a violin I purchased a new one and found Nikita. He has worked with me trying to correct bad habits. Teaching proper handling, finger placement, notes, bow hold and care. Nikita works with children and the ELDERLY and everyone in between. His patience and passion for music is great. I highly recommend this person. He is not only a highly trained and gifted musician with many years of experience but also an excellent teacher. I value his skills and his friendship."

"My son had been taken lessons from Nikita for a month now. I can see that the lessons have made a huge difference in his playing. He now has better sounds and postures, and his confidence with the instrument has also gone up quite a bit.

Nikita is an intelligent teacher. He doesn't emphasize on what to play, instead, he focus on how to play. He corrects wrong techniques consistently, and gives helpful drill assignments to practice at home. We are extremely happy with his teaching."

"Five Star Excellent Student focused Teacher

We have had Betsy teach our three kids for years. She is well trained, has an excellent fund of musical knowledge, and is technically superior. But best of all she tailors her teaching based on each child's skills, interest, and energy. She keeps the kids engaged, even with their different skill sets and learning capabilities. We have had several tutors in the past, and the kids can play piano, cello, and violin. But out of all the music teachers, Betsy's ability to keep each child involved and interested has kept them playing violin even though its not the instrument they play at school.

I can't give a higher recommendation than I can give for Betsy."

Easy Violin Music for Beginners and Beyond

Playing some familiar tunes is one of the first things you may pursue when learning a new instrument. You might start the violin thinking it will be years before you can play the music you want, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that many familiar favorites are available as easy violin music. Simplified sheet music makes it easier than ever to move from bland scales and exercises to pieces you actually recognize. Add these pieces to your repertoire early on and you’ll return to th …

Are You Making the Most of Your Violin Practice?

Gifted musicians don't appear from nowhere fully-formed and ready to take to the concert platform.  For every 45-minute concerto or 90-minute recital you hear, hours of hard work have gone into every note, every phrase, and even how the music is approached, learned, and memorized! It may seem strange to say that proper practice is the most nerve-wracking element of mastering your violin, but if you don't know how to structure the session, how can you ever be sure that you're working on the rig …
