Amazing instructor. I would recommend him to anyone.

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.

I have been teaching violin for 3 years. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons this year, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever.

I teach using the Suzuki Method and See Saw exercise books. I love to teach students of any age - adults and kids. For younger students, I recommend a parent be present to help with lesson setup and note-taking. You're welcome to sit in on the whole lesson or just the first and last 5 minutes or so.

Also, I love introducing students to alternative styles of violin. Want to learn how to play in a rock band? I can help! Want to play by ear and jam? We can do that too!

No matter your end goal, we'll work on posture and playing technique to help you achieve a beautiful sound and comfortable playing. We'll also work on basic music theory and note-reading.

I look forward to meeting you!

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

Hi! My name is Hua and I'm originally from Shanghai, China. I'm currently pursuing an Artist Diploma at Jacobs of Music. I've always loved making friends, helping people, sharing my thoughts and that led me to teaching! I have experience in teaching every level no matter if you just picked up the violin or can already play Paganini caprice I'm your girl! Learn with me I will share my knowledges with you as well as any Asian culture you're curious of. My ultimate goal is to be your friend, your guidance, someone who can be there when you need help, rather than a be teacher who tells you what to do. I will make plans for each individual because every soul is UNIQUE.

About Hua

I love to go out for a walk/hike on a sunny day, take some nice pics, blue sky makes me feel happy. I hate rainy day and I'm absolutely unproductive on rainy days it just bothers me for no reason haha. I love watching shows/movies, play games with friends when I'm not practicing.

"As someone who hoped to return to the violin later in life, I was worried about how to begin and was even a bit insecure about starting again late in the game. Ryan was a great teacher because he alleviated all of my worries and was willing to work with my learning pace and schedule. Thank you Ryan for the best lessons ever, and I hope to keep learning from you!!!!"

"It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed."

"My 4-year old son and I have been taking violin lessons with Krisztina for a little over 6 months.
It's been a great experience for both of us. Krisztina is really adept at engaging him. She knows that little kids have short attention spans and makes her lessons fun. She can read him well and she is really good at incorporating characters and toys he likes into the lesson to keep it interesting for him.
It's been wonderful for me too to be able to learn the violin at the same time and for us to practice and play together., Krisztina is able to seamlessly teach and challenge both of us during the same session in spite of our age difference.
We started out with in-person lessons and switched to online classes as the pandemic set in. I'm grateful that we can continue despite the the social distancing mandate."

"My son, Donovan, studied violin with Ms. Nelson for four years at Alan’s Music in La Mesa, CA. He began at age four and I was a bit apprehensive about finding a teacher who would be effective with a younger child. Ms. Nelson was the perfect fit. She selects music that is varied and interesting. She is flexible too. When my son showed an interest in learning Superman, she found the music and supported him. We love her patient, gentle, but firm approach. Ms. Nelson has high expectations and is very open-minded about what young students can learn. From the start, she incorporated teaching music notation & music theory at age-appropriate levels. She is extremely knowledgeable and shares her knowledge with students in an engaging and comprehensible manner. She instills a love of music in her students - what a gift! I can’t recommend Ms. Nelson’s music instruction enough.

-Gina Vattuone La Mesa, CA

Ms. Nelson is a very nice and funny person. She is a good violin teacher because she is encouraging and always plays the music before I play it to see if I like it.

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs

Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly …
