Great violin teacher, good at explaining, and has good rapport with my teen son.

I have been enjoying lessons with Ryan a lot. He is great with giving encouragement, pointing out blind spots. Working with him is not just learning the music and instrument, it's learning about yourself and the way you relate to music.

Online Violin Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for the past six years. As a student who struggled myself in nearly every aspect of education, I understand the importance of individualized learning. As a teacher and performer, I look to find relationships between the emotional and intellectual facets of music. By doing this, I try to uncover the mystery of violin playing, allowing my students to gain an understanding that will last with them forever.

Every single student posseses the potential to fulfill his or her violinistic dreams. I cater my teaching around the goals of each student, while still instilling a high artistic integrity.

Though I center each lesson around building a superior technical foundation, duet playing, the theory of harmony, and aural skills are integral parts of my teaching. I strive for my students to develope a beautiful, in-tune, pure sound that can directly connect to their own emotional palette.

About Thomas

Hailed as "delightfully spirited, [with a] rich tone" (Cleveland Classical) violinist Thomas Cooper has appeared as a soloist with several American orchestras, including the Colorado College Festival Orchestra, the Coeur D'Alene Symphony Orchestra, the Credo Baroque Orchestra, the Dubois Orchestra

I got to take lessons with Tammy in my freshman year of college and it was a great experience! She was so nice and patient with me when I couldn't get things right and would really look at things that weren't working and try to figure out exactly what wasn't working so that we can fix it.
Tiffany
I had the pleasure of taking lessons from Tammy during my sophomore year of college when I studied violin performance at the University of Michigan. She is an *incredible* musician and I was always blown away when I heard her play. Whenever I brought challenging music to her, she simplified them for me and showed me how to best practice them. She brought me to a new level of technique and understanding of music.

I highly recommend Tammy as a teacher. She is so patient, fun, and down to earth.

In just this short amount of time that I have had lessons with Ms. Chiu, she has improved my awareness of mistakes and the wrong things to do greatly. She has already taught me me many extremely useful things that I had never even heard of before and they have all helped improved my playing! I know that after every lesson, I will have a lot of useful advice to implement into my practice.
Bonnie
If you are looking for a violin teacher, then look no further. We are so happy with Lucinda. On a professional level, she is a classically trained, well accomplished violinist who plays for the LA Opera. As a teacher, she is patient, methodical, responsible, humble and has a good sense of humor. She really makes it enjoyable and fun for her students every time. I really couldn't recommend her enough.

How to Read Sheet Music: Violin Notes for Beginners | TakeLessons

The most valuable skill you can develop as a musician is learning to read music. While it’s possible to learn to play “by ear,” reading music opens up the world to you as an artist! There are many different ways to write music. Guitarists often read off of charts outlining the chord progressions for the song. Drummers have a rhythm chart showing them what to play. As a violinist, however, you'll most likely be reading off of violin sheet music. Standard sheet music is filled with direc …
