Shahrzad has a way of keeping my 11 y.o. son engaged throughout the entire lesson. He has fun, but at the same time he is being challenged. He practices without us even asking,. He will start orchestra in middle school this year and I know he will be ready!
Shirley Y.
Shahrzad was excellent. She teaches with great passion and knows what to point out on my weakness. Not only is she thorough, she also knows when to demonstrate the piece of music. I really enjoyed my lesson with her. Thank you.

Private Violin Teacher

I have been playing and teaching the violin professionally for all of my adult life. I trained in the UK, where I gained a violin teaching diploma, and since then I have performed and recorded with many well known ensembles and have taught both privately and in educational institutions.
In my lessons I aim to achieve an informal environment for my students and I teach technique, music reading and interpretation as well as general music appreciation. I give lessons to beginners through to advanced levels.
I strongly believe music to be an art and a very important means of self expression.

About Pierre

I graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and joined the BBC Midland Radio Orchestra. From there I joined the English String Orchestra as Sub Leader touring the USA and Europe and making many recordings. Whilst working with the ESO I developed an interest in the Baroque violin and joined

Private Violin Teacher

I am an outgoing, positive teacher who has a passion for music and for sharing this passion with students in a fun and relatable way. I don't approach every student the same way - as unique individuals, I learn about the student's goals and personality, and will create customized lessons based on the information and relationship we form. Knowledge of the instrument, music theory, and basic fundamentals are building blocks of any lesson, but the sky is the limit!!

About Regina

I was inspired to play the violin after seeing the local middle school orchestra perform when I was 8 years old. Since beginning group violin lessons the following school year, I have been consistently involved in developing my passion for and involvement in music in versatile ways -participating i

Ms Regina was wonderful! My son absolutely loved having her as a teacher. She really spent time with him on the basics of reading music and tempo, and we could see his skills progress. Thank you, Ms Regina!

She is so nice and friendly. My 5 year old daughter likes the lessons which is interesting and easy to catch up
Prema
Catherine is a kind, friendly and very patient while teaching me violin lessons. She walked me through Musical Grammar and taught me the details of "Violin instrument". She makes the lessons fun and challenging too which helps us to go to the next level of learning. She gets into the details as to how I'm playing and in the end its just that she wants me to get it right . She has always encouraged me and motivated me to learn. I didn;t know the "ABC's of music but she has taught me alot till date. I'm glad I found her as my music teacher.

Catherine is patient, conscientious, caring and a very experienced violin teacher. My daughter has progressed not just in violin skills but also in discipline, resilience and confidence in other skills.

I left after my first lesson as an adult, looking forward to future lessons. She is very proficient in the way she gives her class, sensitive to the needs of the student, and has a pleasant manner that soon has you at ease. I felt I learnt quite a bit in that first class.

"Nikita is an incredible teacher. He has taught me so much about control, elevating my playing greatly. He will always have more ways for you to improve, as he is very particular, yet he will continually make you excited about the violin and love what you are doing. Being under the instruction of Nikita has prepared me for college and has brought me closer to my future life as a musician. I would recommend him as a teacher to ANYBODY."

"Travis is a cheerful, talented tutor who never fails to provide great, practical and simple to follow lessons which additionally are always fun to participate in. He's remarkably positive, and already I feel as though I have come on in leaps and bounds doing things with the violin that would have taken me an age to learn by myself. I hope that I continue learning with Travis for a long time to come."

"Dan is fantastic. He is approachable, reliable, and speaks to my daughter (mature age 9) as an adult which encourages her to take responsibility for her instrument and practice habits. She is just beginning, but has already made great strides with the violin. I have no doubt she will be able to play with the orchestra in the next school year; and I think this will be a long successful teaching relationship."

"There is no need to look any further, Amy is the best instructor TakeLessons has to offer. If you are doubtful, schedule a few lessons to find out for yourself! She is patient, and takes time to explain new material. She has sent me audio recordings of measures that I had difficulty with during lessons. She has an upbeat personality and sharp ears, which is crucial for online learning. You can't go wrong with her as your instructor."
