I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

Stephanie was so patient and very informative. I absolutely love her positive correction. Neither Marlee my 7 year old or myself have any knowledge of the violin and she has been excellent.

I have put my daughter in singing classes with many different teachers but none were as spectacular as Mary. She is in love with these classes and all the technique being taught in them, and I've noticed a lot of progress in her singing plus confidence in her ability. I sadly cannot afford any more classes but recommend Mary whole-heartedly to anyone that really wants to advance as a singer and have serious improvement.
Michelle W.
Mary is an excellent violin teacher. She has a firm yet kind approach with an effective method in teaching a challenging instrument. She is punctual, reliable and passionate about teaching. In short, we had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Mary!

"I've been taking lessons with Stephanie for about 3.5 months now. I was looking for a teacher with flexibility who could adapt their teaching to the student, rather than following a rigid lesson plan. Stephanie has been a great fit! Not only do I play songs that I want to learn, but also I feel like a lot of what we focus on learning is actually adapted to me. I love that if I want to experiment with a new technique, she encourages me and is there to guide me on how to approach it. Nothing ever feels out of reach (though it might take lots of practice). She focuses on consistent improvement rather than doing something right or wrong. Stephanie is also very responsive between lessons to answer questions, including with video demos. She's very helpful, positive, and overall fun to work with."

"I had the privilege of taking weekly lessons from Marisa for two years as an undergraduate violin performance major. During this time, Marisa taught me so much about musicality, technique, and listening as an advanced violinist. No matter how prepared I was for my lesson, I always left with many new ideas about my music and clear-cut ways in which to accomplish them; Marisa truly taught how to teach myself. Above all, Marisa is a wonderfully kind, intelligent person who helped me find my way in both music and life. Anyone who studies with her would be very fortunate."

"Excellent violin teacher

Charlene has done a wonderful job with teaching my 6 year old daughter the fundamentals of playing the violin using the Suzuki method. She has not only helped technically, but has also given my daughter the encouragement and patience necessary to develop her confidence with playing. Her high level of experience and passion for playing the violin is very evident. I would highly recommend Charlene to anyone looking to improve their performance with this instrument."

"OMG my excitement is through the roof after my first lesson with Humberto! I can't even get my feet to touch the ground. I am an adult, basically starting from scratch picking up my violin for the first time in 20+ years having played for a year as a kid. I was so nervous, and feel silly starting at such an elementary level, and Humberto's instruction was not only expert, but his enthusiasm was completely genuine. He was authentically supportive every step of the way and thrilled at every moment of progress. His infectious smile made me feel so safe being a novice starting over and so excited for my next lesson...which he's not teaching me in Spanish since he learned I need to practice my dusty Spanish skills as well! Couldn't recommend him highly enough, love love love Humberto and can't wait til next week's lesson!"

How to Read Violin Sheet Music for Beginners | TakeLessons Blog

The most valuable skill you can develop as a violinist is learning how to read violin sheet music. While it’s possible to learn to play “by ear,” being able to read music can open up a whole new musical world for you! There are many different kinds of music notes. Guitarists often read off of charts outlining the chord progressions for the song. Drummers have a rhythm chart showing them what to play. As a violinist, however, you'll most likely be reading violin sheet music. What is v …

Violin Tips: Stiff Shoulders and Arm Pain

Playing the violin should be fun - not a pain! Some arm fatigue is normal when you're first starting out, but anything more than that may be a sign of poor posture, technique or instrument placement. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you practice and play... 1. Relax. Many beginner players tense up their shoulders, arms or wrist without even realizing it, which can cause a lot of problems. Just relax! Focus on your breathing, but also don't lose your posture. 2. Check your techni …
