Private Violin Teacher

Every student is unique, so I will tailor the lessons to you and make it fun! I'm passing on to you the training I received from the very best master teachers of the violin. Stringed instruments are challenging, but I believe in enjoying making music at every level, while establishing a strong foundation in good technique. For learning fundamentals of music theory and ear training, we will play various rhythm and improvisational games. I have extensive background in European classical music, and I've also done quite a bit of improvisation, some fiddling, and electric violin and viola. Whether you want to be the next Joshua Bell or the next Lindsey Stirling, I can help you improve your playing. I will help you sing, dance and tell a story through your violin or viola.

About Gloria

Born into a musical family in 1966, I have extensive performance experience as a classical violinist and violist, and I've been composing my own music since 2000. I am very grateful to have studied with some of the finest teachers of violin, viola and chamber music, and I graduated in 1990 from th

Gloria has been a wonderful and inspiring teacher over a period of very formative years for me as a violinist. We first worked together for all 4 years of my undergraduate violin performance degree at Mills College from 2010-14, and Gloria helped me develop a lasting appreciation for listening deeply and developing focus for small details. We worked together on everything from solo Bach and Hindemith sonatas to concertos, chamber music, and orchestral excerpts. She has been a lasting influence in my life as a musician, and I will continue to return for musical and creative advice over the years even when I live far away.

I love teaching strings. Violin is my main instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

"I am happy to leave a very positive review for Dan! I am an adult beginner, and when looking for a violin teacher, I wanted to find someone with professionalism, a good knowledge of the violin, and of course, patience. My grown children had a variety of violin and piano teachers while growing up and I wish I was able to find someone like Dan for them at the time. My two daughters had piano instruction with an intense, very experienced pianist at a prestigious music school. They learned excellent technique, but it was very stressful and only one continues to play as an adult for pleasure. I am so impressed with how Dan has concentrated on a strong foundation of proper violin technique in a patient, gentle manner. I highly recommend him for students of any age. I recommended him to my daughter for my granddaughter who is 6 years old. His studio would be far for my daughter to get to, but it would be well worth the commute!"
