Private Violin Teacher

In my one hour of comprehensive teaching, students learn extensively the techniques of the violin, including tone production, vibrato, musicality and pieces of music which are chosen from standard violin literature or Suzuki books. The whole idea is to get students to look at the whole learning process as a fun activity, and very soon they acquire the ability to produce beautiful sounds, correct intonation and strong vibrato. In addition to the above, I conduct some some ear-training exercises to improve intonation as well.

About Nader

I am a violinist and composer. I have trained more than 1200 students in more than twenty five years of my teaching carrier. *** Lesson Details *** Each lesson includes scales, arpeggios, etudes, duets and a new piece of music from different eras of music. I emphasize on tone production, correc

Carolina V.
He is very patient and has excellent communication skills. I have no knowledge of how to play the violin or music of any kind. After my first lesson I strongly feel he will be my private instructor for many years to come. I left with proper technique of how this instrument is to be cared for and good posture when practicing. He also informed me of the books we will be incorporating into my lessons. Most importantly homework is given and he is very patient and explains everything at your level.
Kira
I was very pleased with my first lesson with Nader. He is very kind and patient. We covered some basic points with what we'll be covering for my lessons with the cello. His instructions and explanations of technique is very clear I feel my lessons with him will be very beneficial and enjoyable.

Mr. Nader is an excellent instructor who always puts his students first. He customizes his lessons in accordance to each individual and patiently works with them so that they may achieve their optimum potential.

More than just a passive teacher of the violin, Mr. Nader dedicates his time and energy as a full time instructor of violin, cello, and music theory. Furthermore, Mr. Nader exhibits a level of knowledge, intellect, understanding, and culture rarely seen in the world today. When one walks into his music room, one will be struck with awe at not only the amount of books in Mr. Nader's library collection, but also the wide variety of subjects ranging from Music, Music History, Biographies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many more. However, do not think that these books are just for display. Quite the contrary, one short conversation with Mr. Nader will show that he is well versed in all these subjects; a modern incarnation of the Renaissance polymath. Building off of his broad knowledge base, Mr. Nader not only teaches one how to play an instrument, he also teaches one how to cultivate oneself in Music and the culture from which it originates.

With a passion for Music and a yearn to pass on higher culture to the avid learner, Mr. Nader is the best instructor for all those who wish to learn Music along with its connection to the history, society, and culture from which it springs.

Private Violin Teacher

Hey there!
Violin is the first instrument I ever tried to play starting at age ten, mostly because I loved movie scores and grandiose classical sounds. Since that beginning, I have played in school orchestras every year after and a few years spent in college level symphonies. Throughout these rewarding, fourteen years of experience, I have held different positions as part of the orchestras such as rehearsal manager. I have trained countless peers throughout the years. Also, I was majoring in music for three semesters in college but then I switched to engineering.
Anywho... I know the tricks and concepts to make violin fun and easy(it gets easier eventually I swear). Any age group suits me, as I am very adaptable to different students' needs. Reading music, as well as interpreting what it wants your body/mind to perform, can be explained in countless manners.
Before we can make music we need:
1) RHYTHM!!! -keep a beat and count subdivisions
2) Notes

About Riley

I am an established musician having played violin in Orchestras for fourteen years led by many experienced conductors as well as six years of experience playing bass guitar. I have played in Carnegie Hall, NY and the studio of the alternative radio station 91x. I have been in the strict classica

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.

I love teaching violin and have been doing it for over 10 years. I believe private lessons are an essential component to successful musical development and growth. It is my hope that my students develop the tools they need to become independent musicians. I strive to create an atmosphere that fosters not only growth in technique, but in character, personal discipline, and a long-term appreciation for music. Every lesson is tailored to fit my student's needs and interests.

Shadwa is awesome! She’s very patient and understanding of student needs. She’s also very encouraging and helpful, whether you’ve had violin experience or not, and makes learning to play so much fun!
Christine
I have learned a lot from my lessons with Shadwa. She has a knack for explaining technique, for making the connections between the physical movement and the sound produced. (Yes, it really does help to stand up straight!) She takes a personal interest in her students, which makes for a great lesson atmosphere. We established longer term goals that we could work towards; I appreciated her patience and creativity. Even scales became more than just boring drills! I definitely recommend her as a viola teacher for adults!

We have seen more progress and interest than we ever could have imagined when we initially said yes to violin lessons. Kristen is patient, friendly, flexible and so so so talented. It is definitely a huge added bonus that we get to hear her play!"
