About Connie
I love teaching, and enjoy passing on that joy, knowledge, and experience to my students! I tailor lessons according to the student's goals, abilities, and preference in musical styles. Whether you're wanting to learn the violin to be a virtuoso or just as a personal hobby, I believe you should enjoy the learning process!

I am passionate about music and enjoy teaching aspiring students! I am active as a violin teacher, performer, chamber and studio recording musician in the greater Los Angeles area. I hold a Masters of Music Degree in Violin Performance from California State University, Long Beach and have been playing the violin since the age of four. I've enjoyed teaching private lessons for the past 18 years and have experience in teaching group and private lessons to students of all ages, coaching string orchestras and string ense
mbles. I have a broad education in music with knowledge of classical, modern, and world music, as well as advanced training in music theory which I incorporate in private lessons. I have also studied conducting, music analysis, music history, voice, and advanced piano.

*** Specialties ***
While I specialize in classical music, I help my students discover what genre of music they're passionate about learning, including classical, jazz, pop, and fiddle. Lessons include scales, technique, ear training, sight reading, music theory, solos, duets, music performance and the option to prepare for auditions and youth orchestras. I tailor the curriculum I use depending on the need of each individual student. Please contact me for up to date lesson availabilities!

***Repertoire***
Beginner to intermediate students use method books such as Essential Elements, Suzuki Method, and the Royal Conservatory of Music. For young students, I also use the Sassmannshaus Tradition, and the Violin Fun Book series. Intermediate to Advanced students learn technique using Carl Flesch scales, and studies from Shradiek, Sevcik, Mazas, and Kreutzer to name a few. Solo pieces including from composers such as Mozart, Franck, Bruch, Mendelssohn, Seitz, Bach, Handel, Beethoven and Vivaldi. I also encourage my students to explore other styles of music that interest them, such as pop, fiddling, Celtic, and movie music.

Wonderful violin teacher, the best I have ever had. Very patient, although I am an adult student, re-beginning to play. Showed me things that I have done wrong for years in one session.

About Duane
I currently hold a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in Vocal Performance. My singing career began at a very tender age of eight when I sang my first vocal solo at church. It was there that I realize that I had a talent that need to be nurtured. Throughout my musical career, I have been trained by various professional vocal coaches that helped me find and nourish my vocal abilities. While studying at Andrews University I have had the privilege of being part of a few assembles. I sang with the University Singers (Touring Choir), the University Chorus, and The Men’s Chorus as a Bass Baritone.

*** Specialties ***

Allison's dedication to teaching is obvious from the moment you start with her. As someone with a lot of trouble sticking with the more tedious parts of practice, her consistency and energy did volumes for my attitude and ability to stay on track. That she's still a student herself seems to inform her teaching all the time - Allison understands that some things just click more than others, and she doesn't get frustrated when you need extra help or encouragement. I would recommend her to anyone!

About Michele
I am a passionate cellist and instructor who loves working with students of all ages and abilities and helping them discover a love for music as well. I graduated in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education with a string emphasis, and a Master's degree in Cello Performance in May 2016. My teachers include Jenna Dalbey of the Tetra String Quartet, Thomas Landschoot of the Sonoran Chamber Music Series, and Jonathan Ruck of the Brightmusic Chamber Ensemble. I have been playing cello for 14 years and during that time I accompanied a choir during a high school festival, performed with the ASU Symphony, performed two solo cello recitals in college and had quartet coaching with the St. Lawarence String Quartet and Julliard Quartet. In addition to my cello experience, I also have been playing violin for 7 years and viola for 3.

Michele is a wonderful teacher. I was worried about my preteen daughter because she is so shy but Michele is so much fun. She gently encourages, is full of smiles and praise and she brings out the little musician in my child. I'm not sure if best instructor is fair since it is our first time with private lessons but I it would be really hard to beat this one and we don't intend to try.

About Cassidy
As a professional violinist graduated from the University of Michigan, I am dedicated to making music of all forms come to life—and to sharing my passion for music, art, and the world around with as many people as possible. Having earned BMs in both Violin Performance and Music History, I believe that a holistic approach to playing the violin is crucial, and I am passionate about teaching individuals of all ages the craft of the violin while exploring the theory and history that make our art so captivating.

My own musical interests center around new music (classical works being written today) and music from the Renaissance and late Medieval time periods; the fields are more similar than one might think! I currently perform with a specialized new-music quartet and several other ensembles, working extensively with contemporary student co
mposers and aiming to share their work throughout the Ann Arbor community.

My son had his first lesson with Cassidy today. He enjoyed his lesson. Over the years he got some bad habits. Cassidy came up with some creative exercises that helped him to improve his posture and grip. He is looking forward to his next lesson with Cassidy.

Cassidy Goldblatt is a very bright and enthusiastic teacher who offers tremendous insight into creatively effective ways of playing the violin. When I recently performed in front of her as practice for my jury, I found that her most stressed advice (for me) was to focus on elements concerning the mind, and opening up the body: things that I never considered speculating into in my past ten years of playing violin. Her specific advice turned out to be extremely helpful when playing under high stress, and I not only regret not finding her sooner, but I once again commend Cassidy on her imaginative insight and never-ending ideas on technique and musicality. Cassidy's constantly supportive and graceful demeanor were key to creating a meaningful collaboration in our time together, and would only help but inspire passion for music in her future students.

I come from a community with a large immigrant population, and I want to give back to similar communities, or any individual who wants to learn the English language as an immersive cultural experience, immigrant or not. I teach in a personable, easygoing, but highly structured style.

I believe you have to “know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.” With my practical tips students learn to read sheet music in no time. The lesson plans I’ve created include theory, technique, sight-reading as well as improvisation in any musical style. Anyone can start learning today, regardless of their age or skill level.

I came to Geovonna with No Ear for singing, halfhearted at best, I love music and singing but was not born with the gift. Geovonna helped me discover that a tone def person who couldn't hold a note to save his life can actually truly SING!! I believe that if she hadn't cared about my progress, and paid careful attention to my strengths and weaknesses and tactfully worked with me accordingly in developing my ear and voice, my love for singing would have faded away. Today I am very happy with my progress and can't stop singing!!! I catch myself in awe that I am actually singing beautiful! though I have much work to do. Thank You Geovonna!! see you on our next session!! :)

I can't even say, how amazing Geovonna is at her job! She has such a positive energy , is so dedicated and keeps you motivated throughout the whole lesson! Before Geovonna, I've had many different teachers and I didn't really learn much, because they made it so complicated and hard to understand ): But then I met Geovonna and within the first 20 minutes of my first lesson I had already seen such a big difference!!! I feel like she has a GREAT teaching technique and she makes learning so much fun!!! And thats very important, to have fun when learning something because it makes everything easier for you and a lot more enjoyable! I've never fell more in love with music in my entire life, I have a HUGE PASSION for music and that is thanks to Geovonna!!! Not, only that but she brings out an incredible amount of confidence in you and if anything seems a little hard for you she spots it, breaks it down and helps you through the process! I've also had singing lessons with her and I never was really much of a singer but now I can hear the difference in my voice since when I didn't sing at all and I'm willing to learn anything else she could put in my way because with her I'm 100% sure , without a doubt that it would be a success! The hardest things, to me are way easier! If you ever come across Geovonna do not let her go because you will never come across another teacher like her without hesitation I can tell you that she is the best at what she does and she will make you an amazing musician/singer!

Geovonna teaches my little sister as wel. My sister is already caught up to me and she is 6! She is very flexiable with the schedule, and she is very kind and sweet. I've learned a lot from her. She makes it super easy and fun, and when I kept messing up she made me feel very relaxed and then I nailed it! Her teaching skills are very simple but very helpful. I recommend her.
