We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

As a adult student, I have a bit advantage at understanding the theory relatively easily. Maybe also have the willingness to practice on my own. But on the other side, the stiffness of fingers and the frustration of “I know I should do that but just couldn’t “ are common scenarios too. Maggie could adjust the pace and the materials based on my progress which helps a lot. She is also put equally emphasis on both technic and the understanding of music itself, which makes studying piano a vey enjoyable experience.
Emma Y.
The lesson went by really well. Maggie is a really good teacher, she is patient and efficient. My daughter really enjoyed her lesson.
Tiffany
Maggie came to teach my 5 year old daughter her very first lesson. I was impressed with how much she covered in a half hour! My daughter was really not interested but Maggie was patient and able to get her hold the violin, learn it's parts, play some notes and even read a line of music! Kudos to Maggie.

First lesson for my 11 year old son with Christina. She has a very nice studio that my son was very comfortable in. She identified his level and sent him home with much more difficult pieces than his previous teachers. He has been practicing more because it is more difficult but also he seems to enjoy the challenge which she created for him. Thanks Christina, I am looking forward to watching him progress under your guidance.

She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

I was a little hesitant in my first class as I am trying to learn it at older age but Panagiota was very friendly and made sure that the environment is comfortable for both of us. I had the first lesson and I would say it was good but too early to conclude the overall experience. I would prefer to provide meaningful feedback at the end of my sessions so that it will be informative and helpful for others. Thanks

She was very thorough in explaining the basics in a very short amount of time. We focused a lot on technique and what to work on until the next lesson.

Holding a Master's degree at Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University, I'm an experienced teacher and have taught students of all ages. I'm happy to help my students set up lesson plans. To build students’ foundation in ear training, music theory and skill improvement are all necessary and beneficial to music study. I believe that both short-term and long-term goals help students be more motivated, active and determined on instrument learning. I'm happy to discuss repertoire with students, based on their interests and levels. Besides, I always love to see my students have overcome stage fright and pressure, frequently playing in performances and competitions confidently.

However, in addition to the Classical and Baroque styles that brought the violin to worldwide fame, there are many modern pop and rock songs that highlight the capabilities of this beloved instrument.  Familiarizing yourself with differ …

Best Violin Songs to Practice by Genre: Rock, Pop, and Country

Love it or hate it, practice is a significant part of every musician’s life. This is especially true for those learning the violin, as there are many complex techniques and skills one must learn. As every musician can attest, finding the time and motivation to practice can be difficult, especially when you’re used to practicing the same songs over and over again. Rather than bore yourself to death, try switching up your practice plan by adding different genres of music--such as roc …
