Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy
Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, theory and performing as I share my knowledge and expertise.

I have degrees in Violin, Viola and Vocal Performance, that I earned while on full scholarship for music. I started violin as a young child with the Suzuki Method and later added viola. I began singing professional gigs while still in high school, and was the youngest member ever with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Chorus at 17. I also have extensive experience singing in non-classical groups and bands and am comfortable performing and teaching musical theater, pop, country,
opera, operetta, and church music. With solid vocal technique my students are able to cross genres with ease, and sing whatever inspires them musically.

I currently play viola with the La Jolla Symphony, and have sung with the San Diego Master Chorale and the San Diego Symphony. I was concertmaster in several symphony orchestras and have played as section leader for viola in numerous groups. I also play in and manage a string quartet and am also currently coaching small group string ensembles. My siblings and I have played in our family string quartet for over 20 years, and still perform together. Most recently I was chosen to record a new song Glow for Disneyland's California Adventure World of Color Winter Dreams.

I am comfortable teaching with various different methods, and cater lesson plans to the individual student. With over 14 years of teaching experience, I have taught students that vary in age from 3 to 75 years old, and am very comfortable with teaching children.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument or voice, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play/sing introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing/singing multiple songs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a violin and viola that I bring to assist in teaching lessons. I expect that the students provide an instrument and their books. A keyboard or piano is essential for voice students for vocalization. A student need not know how to play piano in order to take voice lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Vocal students are encouraged to pick songs from whatever genre sparks their interest. With violin and viola I use the suzuki method of training and follow the books and lessons, I use other books to supplement scales/technique.

Comprehensive and fun lessons focusing on musicality, technique and music theory for all ages.

About Jessica
Dear students and parents,

Hello and welcome to takelessons.com! My name is Jessica and I am classically trained violinist with over 19 years of playing experience. I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and recently relocated to Saint Louis with my family. Music has always been passion of mine since a very young age, so it was inevitable that it would end up being my career. Naturally, a love for teaching the wonders of music followed suit!

I always try to form a great rapport with my students and parents from the very first lesson. For younger students, I encourage my parents to take an active part in both lessons and daily practice, as is encouraged by Shinichi Suzuki.

I've been teaching violin and viola professionally for over 10 years now. My experience includes teaching private lessons at students homes as well as at
various music schools, summer camps and festivals. A few advanced students have even attended and performed in some of these aforementioned festivals! I am always encouraging my students to go above and beyond.

A bit of background about me: I started my music studies at the age of 7. Lessons and orchestra were literally the highlight of my childhood. I ended up attending the Baltimore School for the Arts for high school, and went on to receive my Bachelor of Music Performance degree from Shenandoah University and complete further studies in England, Northern Ireland and Maryland (UMBC graduate certificate). I am also a registered Suzuki Violin/Viola teacher and have attended many teachers workshops in order to gain the knowledge and experience necessary to work with any and all types of students, including those with learning disabilities, such as ADD and FAS.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I am a registered Suzuki violin teacher, I do not teach solely out of a certain method or "by the book"; I choose and mold every lesson depending on specific, strengths, weaknesses, etc. If you are a more advanced, serious player, more intensive lessons and repertoire will follow suit.

I am comfortable teaching all ages and levels up to advanced. Use of games make learning the violin fun and accessible for young children. Older and more advanced students receive a more technical, intensive and advanced approach. Coaching and weekly help on school assigned materials (orchestra/string class music and homework) Classical, Jazz, Gypsy and Fiddle styles are all introduced and studied to give students a rounded technique. Music theory (reading and understanding music) is incorporated in lessons. Repertoire is diverse and exciting. Various approaches for the visual or aural learner. Guaranteed to keep you or your child engaged and interested!

*** Equipment and Studio Lesson Details ***

-If you are coming to my home for lessons, please be sure to bring your instrument and any books you may already have.

**Please note, there are three cats in the house. They are usually isolated to a different part of the house during lessons to ensure there are no unnecessary distractions and to help minimize potential allergies (studio is also sprayed with allergy reducer spray and vacuumed regularly). All are UTD on shots. Please call and ask to schedule a "trial" lesson to see if the animals interfere with allergies.

New students:
You may park on the Clayton Rd outside our house or on the cul-de-sac next to the house and walk down.
I have a trial 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 size violin to use for the first lesson if your child is a beginner.
After the first lesson I will send an email explaining what materials and equipment I recommend you buy to help you sound your best.

Places to rent or buy instruments will be recommended upon request.

*** Cancellation/Reschedule Requests ***
1) At least 24 hours notice is required if you need to cancel your, or your child's, lesson. You will be given the option to take a credit that will automatically roll over to cover future unpaid lessons on your calendar, or the option to reschedule for a different day within a week of the canceled lesson.

2) If you find that you need to cancel with less than 24 hours notice (I completely understand life happens, and sometimes it is unavoidable to provide 24hr notice), you will be given the option to make up your lesson within 7 calendar days of your originally scheduled lesson time. If you cannot do a makeup lesson, this will result in the lesson being marked as "missed" and will still be charged as if you attended the lesson.

3) If you do not show up to your lesson scheduled at my home studio and no notice was given, the lesson will be marked as "missed" and will still be charged as if you attended the lesson.

4) If I need to reschedule or cancel a lesson for whatever reason, you will be given an option for a makeup lesson or given a credit that will automatically roll over to cover future unpaid lessons.

5) I require two weeks notice to discontinue lessons if you would like to receive a refund or be exempt from paying future tuition.

6) All lessons are billed ahead of schedule and must be paid in advance in order to keep your lesson slot.

This was the 1st violin lesson for my 5 year old daughter. And it went far better than expected. Mrs. Rui is a wonderful teacher. Patient, warm, and very talented with teaching young children. I was impressed to see how much my daughter learned in only 45 minutes. When it was over my daughter said, "That was so much fun!". My daughter is looking forward to her next lesson.

I would highly recommend Joshua as a viola teacher. My 13 year old son has been taking viola lessons with him for 2 months and I can already hear an improvement in his playing as well as see a marked improvement in his bow hold and body alignment. My son had previously taken private lessons with another teacher for about a year, but Joshua is really helping him to focus on proper technique. Joshua is a very professional, affable and patient teacher.

I have a lot of experience with the Suzuki method as a teacher and also a player having started with that myself. However unless the player or parent specifies that they want strict Suzuki, I go with my method which involves Suzuki but also other methods. I was not strict Suzuki and it definitely worked for me as well as students of mine!

About Erica
My name is Erica and I have been playing violin for 19 years and teaching for 8. I have a violin performance bachelor degree and Suzuki Teacher Certification for books 1-10 from The Cleveland Institute of Music. During my time teaching in the Suzuki program I worked with 15 students at different levels of playing and age groups. I also ran group classes on Saturdays. I completed 100 hours of lesson and group lesson observations. After those four years of undergrad I went on to receive a Master of Music degree at the Juilliard School. I had a private teaching studio in New York with 10 students ages ranging from 5 to 60 years. I Recieved a Graduate Diploma from the New England Conservatory. Currently I am pursuing a doctorate degree at the University of Maryland. I absolutely love teaching and Starting at any age is fantastic!

As an instrumentalist and composer, I have the privilege of an active and successful career in Music, performing across the country with world-class artists, as well as writing music for some of the most sought after international performers.

I believe Music is, most importantly, a tool for communication. As a teacher, I strive to show students how to use this tool on their path towards clearer, more confident self-expression, and in so doing, further myself along the same path.

I took violin lessons from Kris for nearly two years, until moving out of LA. He is an extremely talented musician and teacher. During these lessons, my violin technique and musical expression both considerably improved. Kris is very patient, and able to teach multiple methods to successfully master various violin techniques (such as vibrato). Through implementing improvisation into the lessons, Kris can also bring out the student's musical creativity and confidence, which not only helps aspiring composers, but guides violin students in adding expression to the music they're currently learning. He encourages students to challenge themselves, but effectively teaches all of the techniques necessary to accomplish their musical goals.

He is also a brilliant composer, and is an excellent composition teacher as well! Although my lessons were mostly focused on violin, he provided much useful advice for improving my compositions for orchestra and symphonic band as well.

I highly recommend Kris as an instructor for music students of any proficiency level!

I teach classical violin borrowing from different violin schools I followed back for 20 years in Paris (French, Russian, and German) that allows me to introduce students to some different musical and technical psychologies!
I love to work with kids and use a lot of positivity and humour in my teaching !
I'm also an improviser who can teach a lot about jazz, funk, pop, rock, world, hip-hop etc... (all strings and other instruments are welcome!). How about playing a little bit Bach, then maybe some Miles Davis or Beyonce !!?? I'm pretty sure my students will reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a great time!

About Tony
I am a professional violinist performer, composer and recording artist. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor of Performance/Composition.
I'm originally classically trained and also have a strong background in improvisation, which means that I love playing some Bach as some jazz or some Beyonce, Led Zeppelin...!
I've been added to the Cirque Du Soleil official artist database and played with various great artists such as Jacob Collier, Wang Lee Hom, Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy video game composer), Terrence Blanchard... I also played strings tracks for Flo Rida (Warner/Atlantic Records), France in 2014.
I'm the recipient of the Honorable Mention from the Tribecca Composition Competition representing MA in 2017 as well as the Honorable Mention from the MTNA Composition Competition representing MA in 2016.
I'm curren
tly working in different projects (jazz, pop, classical rock), and is the leader of 2BIRDS BAND, a funk/rock string based band. This band had tours, and gave various shows and clinics in France, Canada and the American East Coast (Boston, NY).
My goal is to get the best from my students, with patience, care and humour, so that they become the best they can be as musicians and human beings! I'm a pretty eclectic artist and love to discover things with my student, regardless their age, level and background! All musics are sisters and it's always a pleasure to teach on one hand classical music and on the other hand, jazz harmony and improvisation as well as rock, pop, hip hop tunes!

He gave me a new outlook on violin playing which not only improved my technique, but also my attitude towards practicing and performing as well. I've only had two classes with him so far, hence the four stars. Inspiring and fun guy.

Learning a musical instrument should be fun, exciting, and most importantly pain-free.

About Chaul
I have been playing the violin for over 24 years. I like to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students regardless of their age. I would prefer beginners to take at least one year of piano lessons prior to learning how to the play the violin. This way students can transfer basic music knowledge into violin playing, especially in the field of reading and learning new music. My goal is to help music lovers learn how to teach themselves one day when a music teacher is no longer available.

I started teaching in 2011 while I was completing the Master of Music degree at Rice University. As I finished my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in December 2017, I decided to build and expand my own studio in Burleson, TX.

I also tutor beginning, intermediate, and advanced Chinese and have always loved Chinese literature.

Its easy to lose yourself in the movements of music, but believe it or not there are mechanisms you can learn to convey your own art. Classical music is about executing interpretation and I focus on teaching the tools violinists can use to realize their vision of the music.

Jacques started violin at age four while living in Southern Illinois. He later moved to Homestead, Florida with his family and began playing in school and youth orchestras throughout the region. Jacques graduated from Coral Reef Senior High School where he returned to regularly to coach chamber music, teach sectionals, and give masterclasses. For the past four years, Jacques has taught chamber music through the Miami Youth for Chamber Music program. Recently, he moved to NY where he will be a fellow in the Orchestra Now.

Jacques Gadway is a great teacher of the violin. He quickly adjusted to my pace of learning and realized my skill level which is so important! He has this sense of patience when it came to my learning and also has excellent time management within 1 hour of a lesson, as he can go on and on to lecture about ways to approach a certain technique or to a piece but somehow still finds time to move on and keeps you moving forward. Each lesson with this instructor had me leaving refreshed and inspired for another week of practice, practice, practice!
