Private Violin Teacher

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.

Very informative, positive, and patient teacher.

Kristapor is a wonderful teacher. He not only taught my son violin, but also inspired him to be a better violinist. He spent hours with my son to come up with a high standard audition tape for applying a summer music camp. My son got accepted & had a great time learning music at the camp. Thank you, Kristapor!!!!
Anne
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!

Simply put, Paulo is an outstanding instructor. He himself is so driven and is constantly working to improve his musicality, which directly translates to his excellent teaching! Learning with Paulo is a great step for younger musicians especially. He dedicates a lot of time and detail into ensuring the students are developing correct playing technique and aids them in exploring a variety of repertoire! Always great things coming from Paulo.
Sharon
Paulo is a well rounded person who has a phenomenal passion for music and a gift for making friends and helping others. Paulo is energetic as well as patient and has a knack for personalizing the lessons to fit the students in order for them to grow musically.
The ideas that Paulo offers help the student break out of the “learning boredom” and think logically beyond what they are use to doing in a school program. Paulo is professional, punctual and experienced. He brings fresh, new ideas that are fun and that bring positive attention to the art of the violinist.
I would definitely recommend Paulo for any level of learning, and of any age. If you are in need of refresher lessons or your child is starting from scratch, Paulo undoubtedly can bring an exciting ease to learning the violin while teaching good, professional skills that have been proven a success.
Jasmine
So, Paulo was my first lessons teacher and I honestly couldn’t have asked for better. He taught me most of the basics and helped me create a strong foundation to improve upon: relaxed bow hand/arm, vibrato, positions, 3-octave scales, some sight reading, expressiveness. (sprinkle in some music theory) He taught all this while being patient and pushing me to be my best. 10 out of 10 would recommend for anyone who is considering.

Awesome teacher! Took several years off from playing clarinet, and Lisa helped me get going again. Best thing I ever did was to start taking music lessons again!

Lisa has been great at explaining some aspects of Jazz theory and improvisation that I have missed or only glossed over in the past. She has given me worksheets and examples that are nicely presented for further study. I recommend her for woodwinds and theory studies! A great teacher and a teachers teacher actually!

Tigran has been an excellent instructor to my 16 year old daughter. She started with him last year and has improved tremendously. He has been kind and professional even though the lessons are in my house and I have a 2 and 4 year old continually trying to interrupt. Instead of being frustrated he has been patient and loving towards them and my entire family. We are so blessed to have him as a teacher in our home. Thank you so much."
