I started learning violin from Dr. Dimitry 1 month ago because, unlike other teachers, I found Dr. Dimitry very honest in specifying the subtleties and nuances, especially the snaggy ones which make the violin one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Although his classes were very expensive, I chose him as he was a straightforward and experienced violinist and I never compromise on the quality of teaching. Also, being a doctoral student myself, I know what it means to earn a Ph.D. and that too in music.

Now, it has been one month, and I enjoy his classes. His analogies and examples are an apt way of understanding the techniques of playing the violin. Though Dr. Dimitry is an advanced violinist, he is very patient with absolute beginners. To sum up, I would highly recommend him to people who are very serious and determined to learn and practice the violin.
Sharon
A true professional and a great teacher! I have been taking violin lessons now for 6 months with Dr. Dimitri Olevsky, having switched to Dimitri after having had a mediocre experience with my previous teacher. Wow…what a difference. Dimitri ably blends his extensive knowledge, talent, and seriousness about his craft with a witty sense of humor. He is able to simplify the complexities of violin technique so that it is truly feels accessible. Highly recommended.
Alexander
Dr. Olevsky was immediately able to improve my playing with direct, practical advice. He is concerned with efficient practice and in making the maximum amount of progress in the time that one has. He is highly knowledgable about the audition process and the real day to day of being a professional performing violinist. I have been playing for 15+ years and find Dimitry's lessons very challenging and stimulating.

Online Violin Teacher

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 ...

So far, so good: after his first lesson, my son (who has been practicing for a year) seemed to get some really valuable correction to his form. He says it this way: "She's really good at explaining why and how."

"Best Violin Teacher Ever!

I'm currently having violin classes with Kan for half a year right now, and so far I think she is the best violin teacher I have ever met. With a variety of effective teaching techniques, Kan can always help me to improve my violin skills in many ways. She teaches me a lot of advanced finger exercises which is really helpful and efficient. Another amazing thing of her is that she can ALWAYS notice what your problem is and tell you right away so that you will no longer make that mistake any more. As an adult learner, She is SUPER patient with me and pays a lot of attention to my questions. Otherwise, she is a professional violinist and so knowledgeable and helpful as a great teacher. I'm so happy to have a class with her every week and will definitely recommend her to my friends who wants learn violin!"

I have seen her flourish as a performer, having attended a number of her soloist and orchestral events. At the same time, it has been exciting to see how she very effectively leverages her passion and technical violin skills with her natural gift for teaching. She’s able to build a true rapport with her students by being involved and really caring about their self confidence and growth as players and performers."
