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

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

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.
Sean K.
Mr. Nader is an excellent instructor who always puts his students first. He customizes his lessons in accordance to each individual and patiently works with them so that they may achieve their optimum potential.

More than just a passive teacher of the violin, Mr. Nader dedicates his time and energy as a full time instructor of violin, cello, and music theory. Furthermore, Mr. Nader exhibits a level of knowledge, intellect, understanding, and culture rarely seen in the world today. When one walks into his music room, one will be struck with awe at not only the amount of books in Mr. Nader's library collection, but also the wide variety of subjects ranging from Music, Music History, Biographies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many more. However, do not think that these books are just for display. Quite the contrary, one short conversation with Mr. Nader will show that he is well versed in all these subjects; a modern incarnation of the Renaissance polymath. Building off of his broad knowledge base, Mr. Nader not only teaches one how to play an instrument, he also teaches one how to cultivate oneself in Music and the culture from which it originates.

With a passion for Music and a yearn to pass on higher culture to the avid learner, Mr. Nader is the best instructor for all those who wish to learn Music along with its connection to the history, society, and culture from which it springs.

"I am a professional musician who works closely with Jessica. Jessica and I work together at our church in the youth choir/band and the adult choir (I am the director of both music groups). Outside of the church, the two of us also comprise a duo, playing classical music and modern classics together. I can speak to Jessica's professionalism and virtuosity, and I can also speak to her interaction with children.
Jessica is incredibly musical; she sight reads fluently, she has excellent intonation and a beautiful tone on her violin, her rhythm is flawless, and she has an instinctive and musical sense of dynamics, leading to beautiful interpretations and expression. She is a superb player in ensemble/chamber music. As a soloist, she commands the stage with a presence of beauty, technical expertise, and confidence.
Jessica works wonderfully with children. She is a kind and loving influence, giving helpful suggestions to the children to help them develop better musicianship. She has vision as a musician, and she conveys her ideas clearly to both children and adults."

"taking just the one course and I wanted to come back for more. She re-lit the inspiration to continue and want more practice and want more education. Being a beginner she tailored to me even with other students. I feel very comfortable and she goes out of her way to help those get it right even when they feel weak in the spirit about just starting. I would really recommend taking courses from her. Not only did I feel catered to, she also was very honest about her boundaries and what she was willing to do and put herself out there for. I am happy to have met this woman and look forward to taking private lessons to improve not my only my love for music but love for the violin."

In addition, Luther is an excellent violist, studying with Martha Katz, also at New England Conservatory.

He will analyze and dissect your technical questions about how to play the violin: concerning tone, bowing, left hand issues, and how to use your arms, shoulders, back and your whole body while playing the instrument. He can help you with fingering and answer your questions about written music. He will demonstrate and help you play musically. He is able prepare you for your orchestral audition, help you learn concertos and other solo music and help you with chamber music. Thanks Luther for continuing to help me attain my dream to become an excellent violinist!"
