About Margaret
Born in Southern California, I began my violin studies at the age of 7 shortly after piano lessons with my mother. I made my professional debut with symphony orchestra at the age of fifteen playing the Vieuxtemps Violin Concerto No.4. I have been awarded several prizes in violin and chamber competitions, including 1st prize in the Four Seasons Orchestra Competition, 2nd Place in Solo Instrumental and 1st prize in Chamber Music in Southern School Performing Arts Competion, honors in American String Teacher Association, and the Best String Player of WMC.

I served as the 2nd violin principal of the YMF Debut Orchestra camp and concertmistress of the Wildwood Music Camp. I also been a member of the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra, Claremont Youth Musicians Orchestra, Orange County Youth Symphony Orchestra, All Southern California Orchestr
a, UCLA Philharmonia and Debut Symphony Orchestra. I have performed in masterclasses for Endre Granat, Anne-Akiko Meyers, Hu-Nai Yuan, Peter Marsh, Mark O'Connor, and Hal Grossman.

After attending the University of California, Los Angeles and studying with Professors Guillame Sutre and Movses Pogossian, I now spend my time participating in active chamber music, teaching/guiding students, and also gigging in studio sessions throughout the Los Angeles area. I am 100% commited with my student's musical journey. Playing an instrument not only takes discipline and patience; it also takes the proper guidance, and I am here to provide the inspiration and guidance for that. I am absolutely encouraging and be there every step of the way to benefit every individual student.

*** Lesson Details ***
Fun and a great foundation go hand in hand together in lessons. Without fun, there wouldn't be interest. Without a great foundation and proper guidance, a student wouldn't be able to play what he/she likes. In the beginning, I spend half of the lesson teaching the necessary foundations to play the violin (i.e. proper positioning, hold, scales, and etudes). The other half, we shall approach a challenging piece or a piece favored by the student to put those elements into good use! That way, we can always provide a consistency and improvement in every lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect my student to provide his/her own violin and stand. I can provide the sheet copy of the music if the student cannot buy the music book itself.

*** Specialties ***

Experienced teacher of 30 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical skills. I specialize in classical music and provide multiple playing opportunities for my students throughout the year.

About Angela
EDUCATION

My musical education began while sitting on my mother's lap as she taught piano lessons. I began studying cello with a member of the Kansas City Philharmonic at age 9, and at age ten, I followed in my mother's footsteps to play the flute. I played all three instruments, (piano, cello and flute) until high school when it was became clear to me that I wanted to be an orchestra teacher. With this dream in mind, I began playing the violin as well.
I graduated from Drake University with a Bachelor's in Music Education in 1989 and again in 1999 with a Master's degree.

PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE

As a youngster, I was the youngest member of the Kansas City Youth Symphony and the Kansas City Cello Choir performing with these two groups for eight years. I was chosen from applicants nation wide, to perform in Carnegie Hall and trav
el Europe with "America's Youth in Concert" and I was a three time All-Stater.

While attending Drake University, I played in the Drake University Orchestra and the Des Moines Symphony, and I was the winner of the Young Artist Competition awarding me the honor as featured soloist with the Drake Symphony Orchestra.
In 1993 I began playing with the Encore String Trio. This trio plays on a regular basis for weddings and receptions.
I currently play cello in the Encore String Trio, and viola in the Long Beach Community Orchestra.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience includes nearly 30 years of private teaching. I've had the pleasure of teaching all areas of music; elementary general music, band, choir and orchestra. During my 20 years of teaching orchestra in the public schools, I implemented many innovative opportunities for my students such as children's concert which drew more than 700 people in attendance, strolling strings, cello choir and a viola choir, all of which proved to be very motivational for the students. My goal of teaching is to make music fun for all.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe music should be fun. I provide you with several playing opportunities throughout the year, ranging from solo to group playing. I provide large group playing opportunities at Christmas and at the recitals. Every group playing opportunity is accompanied with food and games for all. This studio is FUN!

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you are studying for recitals, competitions, a music career or just for fun, you can expect equal attention to technique and musicianship in your lessons.
Lessons will be tailored to each students needs which may include flash cards, supplemental materials, ear training, sight reading, technical studies, scales, and solo work.
You are never to old to learn to play an instrument. Over half of my students are adult beginners. Because of this, I provide group playing opportunities and I organize a solo ensemble contest for my students. This gives opportunities to the adult beginners that they missed out on as a child. You will have a lesson by yourself, monthly mini recitals in my studio, and you will have the opportunity to play orchestra music as a group all right here in my studio. You are guaranteed to learn how to play your instrument, have fun and gain great friendships here in this studio. I'm looking forward to introducing you to our studio family.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The teachers studio is in a large room with multiple windows for natural light. The room includes instruments and stands in the middle of the room.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Suzuki method books. I am a classical player and I teach classical music.

Lily has been teaching violin to my 10 years old son for the past 10 months. We find her to be kind, patient, positive, and understanding. She is not overly strict nor critical, which fits well with my son's personality. She is mind-mannered so we do not feel pressure or discouraged when you are just learning and making mistakes. We are pleased with the progress my son has made in the past 10 months.

Experienced violin teacher of 8 years available for students of all ages and levels! 2014 violin performance (Bachelor's) graduate of Butler University and holder of a Master's in violin performance from the University of Oklahoma. I believe every student is different and therefore do not teach one method, but a mix and match of different methods tailored to each student. Depending on the level of the student, I use the following method books: Essential Elements, Suzuki, Solos for Advanced Violinists, and standard repertoire, etudes, and pop music. I also believe that an understanding of music theory is essential for all violinists, so some of my teaching is devoted to theory.

Ms. Diana is very sweet and patient teacher. My son and daughter are learning Piano and Violin with Ms. Diana. She knows how to make kids be interested in music. She has a talent to make my kids enjoy her lesson. We have taking her lessons for 3 years and I feel we are very lucky to start our kids' music lessons with her. Because I have seen so many students have hard time to reset their thinking of music and posture once they got used to learn music from bad teachers.
I guarantee you will NEVER regret to invite her as your kid's first music teacher.
She is passionate, patient, and sweet piano & violin teacher.

My daughter , Celine has been learning violin from Ms. Diana Kim for 3 years.
At first, Celine had to change all her bad posture from her previous teacher. After 6 months , Celine was able to correct her bad posture and she won a lot of competitions and passed certificate auditions and orchestra auditions.
Ms. Kim always says bad posture is very related to mad sound and it makes a limit to be improved as a violin player.
What I was impressed was Ms. Kim came most of my daughter's competitions and auditions, recitals. Ms. Kim encouraged my daughter when my daughter was so nervous to play on the stages. I can feel Ms. Kim really loves her students and cares a lot once people become her students.
Bi- Monthly student recital in her studio, helps a lot for kids who wants to have a stage experience and it is very important for their confidence.
I heard Ms. Kim started to teach in Youth orchestra and music colleges. I cheer for her students and her teaching classes.
I strongly recommend Ms. Kim for your kids. A great teacher makes huge difference of performance and most of all their student's personality and future.

Los Angeles, CA

Recently graduated from Juilliard, I've been teaching violin and viola for five years, and welcome students of all levels and ages. My background is firmly classical, but additionally I also love fiddle music and give students songs from many genres to learn, arranging upon request. I'm currently a doctoral student at USC, and I work part-time locally as a violinist in the YMF Debut Orchestra. I am also glad to help students with recording, video editing and social media.

About Alexander
As a violin teacher, I always aim to set goals for students, to guide students towards them, and to be direct as possible so far as is appropriate. I also try to stay results-oriented throughout the process. Even if not all of a student’s progress is directly attributable to me, the most important thing was that he improve. I teach from the personal perspective of a traditional, technically founded approach to classical music, but I also love to arrange simple songs from any genre for each student, chosen by me or upon request. On the side, I enjoy playing fiddle music with my family and friends.
As a math and standardized test tutor, I strive to stay results-oriented and based around the student's needs. In past experience as a tutor in college, where I was an undergraduate math major, I would often see shortcuts to problems that to me
were simpler than the methods taught in class, but I became acutely aware of the need to approach learning from students' point of view in addition to my own. Putting students first calls me to help them directly with their needs and to meet them where they are.

I really appreciated Alexander teaching me violin. He was basically my first instructor and he was always patient and motivating. He accommodated my unique needs as an adult beginner and brought me far in a short time. He was a little challenged to balance teaching with his heavy school load, but I appreciated his willingness to take the time to teach and help others.

I have been playing violin since the age of 6. One day I had to make the difficult decision choosing between violin and piano, because both instruments are very dear to me. I chose violin as my primary instrument for its lyrical qualities and closeness to human voice. At the age of 13 I won the Saint Petersburg Violin Competition and performed with the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic.
I am excited to share my love for this instrument with my students no matter what age they are. I see each person as an individual who has their own artistic voice and I will help you to further develop it.
I have won Gartoff International Violin Competition, Freiburg International Violin Competition, Dalhousie Solo Competition, Halifax Rose Bowl, Roosevelt Violin Competition and most recently competed in Schoenfeld International String Competition in Harbin, China, where my quartet placed 3rd. Recently I performed the Brahms Violin Concerto in the Symphony Centre downtown Chicago with Roosevelt ...

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem Kolesov and I'm 22 years old. I'm a second year Masters student at Roosevelt University majoring in Violin Performance.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in Voice, Violin and Piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I had to go through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach
my first language to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended.

Lessons with me are 100% catered to the students' interests with the knowledge and skill behind nearly every genre of music!

My background includes extensive classical training, celtic (irish/scottish/cape breton), bluegrass, country, pop, jazz, r&b/soul, and even anime metal!

There is no style of music I will not touch, so I like to work with my students one-on-one to figure out what their goals are and how we can combine them with the kind of music that they're passionate about -- And we get GREAT sounding results!

About Jesse
Hi!

I'm a professional violinist with 20+ years experience as well as an electronic music producer/artist. Seems like a weird combo, but I love doing both!

I work as a session string player, and I also produce alongside some of LA's most celebrated musicians in the neo-soul, electronic beatmaking, and lo-fi hip hop communities.

Students can expect to be given a completely 100% unique curriculum to work with their goals -- I often ask students to give me a list of people they like to listen to, and then we figure out how we can best achieve a skill set that works for their musical lifestyle.

All of my students walk away with knowledge of fundamental music theory as well as the tools to strengthen their sound, both on a real instrument and on a computer.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
