Much of my methods are derived from my doctoral dissertation studies in the field of Sports Psychology. I apply my teaching methods to develop and increase control of muscular and mental functions, accuracy, precision, discipline, mental awareness and overall coordination in violin performance. I am eager to share my knowledge and experience in sports psychology and to emphasize the general psychological benefits and contribution to human enrichment.

​My students earn numerous accolades, such as Concertmaster and title positions in the: Colburn Chamber and Los Angeles Youth Orchestras, Santa Monica High School Chamber Orchestra, Idyllwild Music Festival Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, Interlochen Music Festival, Honor Orchestra of America, and Santa Monica High School Symphony and Chamber Orchestra, Palisades High School Symphony; Grand Prize in the Fifth International Colibri Music Competition, Westside Committee of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Student Scholarships and ...

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.

I’ve had three lessons so far and I feel so supported by Gail. I’m an adult student and Gail is very patient with me and kind. I actually really enjoy going to my lessons! She has already taught me so many handy tricks that she learned from many years of experience. I’m brand new to the violin and Gail is excellent at helping me with my hand placement and I feel confident that what she’s teaching me is really setting me up for success and good habits with the violin.

My son was excited about Ms Gail’s knowledge of the viola.

I am currently a violin instructor and chamber music/ ensemble coach at University of Southern California. My previous teaching experiences include violin private lesson instruction and chamber music/ensemble coach at Yale University and New England Conservatory Preparatory School. I have been a teaching artist at Porterville Summer Strings for two summer seasons, giving individual instructions and coaching violin sectionals.
I am a graduate of Yale School of Music and New England Conservatory. My teaching focus primarily on good foundation of technique and relaxed posture/physical set up, while inspiring musicality and developing personal expression. I am familiar with a vast variety of classical repertoire/etudes/ scale systems and exercises; however, I often compose/ transcribe personalized etudes and musical pieces according to each student’s need and interest. I also work with music in different genres. I emphasize on the importance of good practice. I help my students to ...

"Great teacher and very passionate! She's patient, positive, responds promptly when I message her with any questions or rescheduling conflict. Great at explaining techniques. I could not have asked for a better Violin teacher.

When searching for a violin teacher, I researched and reached out to a place down the street from me, and it took them over a week to just give me a quote on how much lessons are and when I could schedule them. I decided to do more research and compare. I contacted a few others and then I contacted Antoinette and she responded within a day. Even though she is much farther from my home, I decided to go with her because I knew that she would be a teacher who cared. And I was right :)

Very happy with my lessons. I have taken a little hiatus and now back and buying the packaged deals for more lessons with Ms. Addy"

"Five Star Excellent Student focused Teacher

We have had Betsy teach our three kids for years. She is well trained, has an excellent fund of musical knowledge, and is technically superior. But best of all she tailors her teaching based on each child's skills, interest, and energy. She keeps the kids engaged, even with their different skill sets and learning capabilities. We have had several tutors in the past, and the kids can play piano, cello, and violin. But out of all the music teachers, Betsy's ability to keep each child involved and interested has kept them playing violin even though its not the instrument they play at school.

I can't give a higher recommendation than I can give for Betsy."
