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 ***

Students can start with me as a beginner or as an advanced student looking to learn new practice skills, new technique, skills, and bow strokes. Students work on scales, exercises for tone and coordination, vibrato, solos, sight reading, rhythm, audition music, and orchestral music. They get 2-6 opportunities to perform per year. I can teach a variety of music styles such as jazz, classical, romantic period music, 20th Century music, contemporary music, bluegrass, Celtic, Irish Fiddle, Scottish Fiddle, movie music, and popular music. I recommend many youth orchestras in the area that I encourage my students to join. Some of my students go to Italy in the summer with their orchestra. I can help you work on audition music for All Southern Youth Orchestra and All State Youth Orchestras and other Youth Orchestras. I go at the student's pace and also start out many beginners that have reached Suzuki Book 10 level.

Hi my name is Carmen. I have been teaching music for 10 years to all ages and levels. I make sure my students are able to play a song in the first lesson and customize the lesson to their own goals. I have experince playing in orchestras, trios, quartets, rock and alternative bands as well as teaching classical cello. I have knowledge of many different methods but tailor curriculm based on the students goals. My students have played in orchestras, symphonies, jazz trios and bands

About Carmen
Carmen has been teaching music for 10 years to children and adults, from age 4 to 50. She is able to teach many genres of music to all levels of musicianship, whether beginner or advanced, whether they want to learn Mozart or Coldplay, Aretha Franklin or Joni Mitchell . Her style of teaching utilizes the classical approach of theory and sight reading, but MOST IMPORTANTLY allows the student to explore the instrument freely while also achieving good musicianship. Having fun while honing the craft is the way to an enduring love of playing and is a principle she always uses in her lessons.

Carmen has a special gift with very young children; she is able to keep children interested, engaged, inspired and challenged. She has a patience with children that is extraordinary because she believes strongly in the ability of music to enrich child
ren's lives in all areas and seeks to cultivate that within the child.

Adults also find it easy to learn from Carmen's teaching approach. Her ability to approach a students challenges with a multitude of learning techniques has been useful in helping students succeed. She teaches skills and techniques for practicing that are useful for musicians through out their lifetime. Carmen also knows exactly what it takes to make a student a professional who is ready for studio session work, live band performances, live improvisations, auditions or creating their own music. She understands the desire and drive behind wanting to create with music and emphasizes certain key aspects that can make musicians proficient in any genre when practiced

Education

Carmen comes from a long family lineage of musicians and artists. Always being exposed to classical music and opera since birth, Carmen was in awe of the power of the human voice through opera. At 8 she began to study the art form and teach herself music. She started studying with teachers at age 11. After learning voice, piano and cello followed. While studying classical techniques, she also taught herself other genres of music which enabled her to play, record and perform with musicians of almost every genre by 19.

Carmen has been taught and trained by many professional working musicians of impressive musical carrer heights Her former opera/ vocal coach Shonie Lebie attended The Julliard School on a full scholarship before going on to The Metropolitan Opera House. Piano teacher Shoshana Ben Horin, a graduate of Prague Conservatory of Music and concert pianist, toured all of Europe before instructing Carmen in piano. Carmen has learned cello and other string instruments from professional working musicians here in Los Angeles.

Experience

Carmen is a current working session musician, songwriter and performer in Los Angeles. She has performed and recorded with musicians from The Gap Band, Guns n' Roses, Whitney Houston, Vanessa Hudgens, Hayden Panettiere, etc. She was born and raised in Los Angeles.

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.

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.

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!
