Being able to create music is an integral part of the human condition as it helps us express and understand an exceedingly wide range of human emotion. Teaching how to do it has therefore always been my greatest passion and having been privileged with the guidance of great pedagogues in the past, it is my ambition to pass that invaluable knowledge and skill on to aspiring musicians. I am certain that every person (no matter what age) has vast potential and it is my duty as a teacher to extract those talents and nurture creativity. Guiding students to find a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship to music will encourage them to not only be exceptional artists, but also human beings. It is essential to cater to each student individually helping each one find the right practice strategies, technical studies, repertoire, and most importantly, their own musical identity. My goal is not simply to develop skill, but to teach students how to teach themselves, find their ...

After reading through a large number of teacher profiles, something about Vera's background, experience, and teaching philosophy made me decide to reach out for lessons, and I am extremely happy that I did, as I look forward to each lesson.

Vera has been absolutely great to work with, and if you are looking for a teacher who will challenge you, and be tough and direct when necessary, but also offer empathy and support to help you grow and learn to the best of your ability, then I highly recommend Vera.

Excellent first lesson. I learned some important basics to get me started and I am looking forward to my next lesson.

I work on establishing strong basics (posture, intonation, tone quality, music reading, listening) regardless of the student's playing level. Many of my beginner-intermediate students have expressed their appreciation for applying the same expectations and standards on them as I do on my advanced-professional students. Everyone has a right to learn how to play the violin with good tone and accurate intonation rather than building up insecure repertoire of way-in-advance pieces. In years to come, working on your strong basics always pays of greatly and accelerates the improvement.

After the first lesson we knew that Leah was the best instructor our son (11 years old) ever had. Within a week, his sound improved dramatically and he was practicing much more productively. She also pointed us to some great youth orchestra opportunities. We strongly recommend Leah!

Leah is a great teacher and makes lessons enjoyable. She made it easy to understand what changes I need to make to improve my technique. She gave me reasonable goals for my violin practice in the coming week. I really like her teaching methods and style. I look forward to our next session together.

"Erin is a wonderful violin instructor. My 9-year-old completely changes her attitude about her violin when Erin calls for class. My daughter is one of those who wants to be really good at the violin, but not practice much. Erin is changing that. She is a joy to work with. We are back and forth to China during the year and Erin has been amazing to accommodate our class times to our 15-hour time change. We are blessed to have found Erin. I highly recommend her!"

Kelvin has been an excellent instructor for our daughter. He is articulate in a friendly and informative way. She enjoys her online lessons with Kelvin and has improved her technique within months.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the progress our son Thomas made with Dan. Thomas started playing last year and was progressing faster than the rest of his third grade class which is why we were looking for a private teacher to help him along. Before taking lessons with Dan I had a hard time getting Thomas to practice. Thomas has begun practicing all on his own because he has been genuinely inspired. Dan is a true professional who always on time and in a good mood to teach. He was so patient with Thomas and developed practice techniques unique to Thomas's situation. Dan is more than just a violin teacher, he is dedicated to inspiring each student to love music. Thanks Dan!!!"
