Have you been playing for a long time, or have you never picked up the instrument before? Whether you are a child or an adult, I have a style of teaching for you. I've been playing since I was a child and have a special place in my heart for the is instrument. I actually began learning from a fiddle player and trained classically later. If you want to learn how to succeed in playing this rewarding and satisfying style, this is the place for you.
Are wondering why every time you hit a certain note, it squeaks, or crunches, or sounds glassy? Or maybe you can't quite read the notes. Perhaps you are no stranger to the instrument, but need improvement of musicianship, expression, etc. Let me help you master the skills you're trying to achieve. With my help, you can make breathtaking music!

I have been working with Kim for a few weeks and I have learned a tremendous amount and can hear the difference every week as I progress. I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well. I actually tried a few vocal teachers and Kim with her wisdom and experience made it simple who to go with!!

I've been teaching violin for 11 years and my students have gone on to play with different ensembles. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs by reading and by ear and as time goes on you'll be able to play more complex repertoire. I specialize in classical, style but I can teach you different kinds of styles, typically use the Suzuki repertoire but I use a variety of method and books. I have the following tools available for your lessons: violin, computer program, sound system, Tuner and Metronome . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I am a Broadway musician with 20 years of teaching experience. I know that each student learns differently so I use many different teaching methods and musical genres in lessons. I can help you get started on an instrument, improve your current abilities, work on school band and orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, prepare for college auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.

I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique.

I am an adult, and have had several teachers, and Julie is the best. She is warm and caring and friendly, with a nice sense of humor, and is also businesslike and focused. The lessons are fun, but you don't waste time. Her knowledge of different instruments and different kinds of music is very impressive. When she gives criticism, it's always constructive and thoughtful. She often gives praise when I do well, and the praise is also thoughtful. She gives good suggestions for practice and for working out a problem within the lesson. She treats me like an individual, and appreciates my musical interests, so doesn't try to make me do the same program as everybody else.
Becky
My daugher has been taking piano lessons from Julie for 3 years now. Julie is a wonderful person and a wonderful teacher. She is a brilliant musician and I am so thankful for her calm, clear, kind and patient manner of teaching. She is professional and also makes you feel at home. Julie's encouragement has helped my daughter progress musically and feel more confident with her playing. We adore Julie!

Congratulations! I mean it! Looking for violin lessons is a big step, and the first to achieving your goals as a budding musician.

In your lessons with me, you will first learn proper set-up and technique, and we will mainly work from the Suzuki method books. Additionally, I will provide you with various scales, exercises, and "fun pieces" as you progress. I wholeheartedly believe that learning the violin should be enjoyable, and not a chore. So, wherever you are at with current skill level, and whatever your motives are for taking lessons, you can rest assured that we will have a great time together!

I have worked with Lauren for over a year now. I have found that Lauren is very patient and is willing to work with you to reach your goals and not just the goals of a book. Lauren works with you on a one on one basis to help you get where you want to go. Lauren is extremely knowledgable and always ready with a challenge to help you progress.
Catherine P.
I just completed my first lesson with Lauren. I was hesitant as to how it would go because I know nothing about the violin or how to hold the bow. With that said, even though it has only been one lesson, I have complete confidence that Lauren will help me reach the goals I am looking to achieve. She has a wonderful calmness that makes you feel relaxed and competent.
Paul
Being a beginner, I didn't know what to expect.. I had previously taught myself for six months with various books and online resources. After a few checks to see if my fundamentals were correct and my playing of a few tunes, we immediately started working on double stop execution. By the end of the lesson, I had made good progress and understood some key elements in playing double stops...correcting the bow plane, and choosing the correct drone, moving the bow to adjacent string double stops, etc. Lauren was very pleasant, and obviously skilled with technique matters. After getting over my first few anxious moments, I found the learning environment, communication, and overall experience very comfortable and look forward to many more great learning experiences.

"At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

"Cecilia was an absolutely amazing violin teacher! She not only had a great method of teaching, but she would treat me not only like a student, but like a friend. She always took special time to address the issues I was having while playing, and carefully adjust my method to ensure better playing. She allowed me to rent one of her violins and gave me the best advice on everything one would need to know about caring for a violin. She even guided me through the process of bringing the violin on an airplane when I traveled. I would definitely recommend Cecilia for violin lessons (or any type of lesson!) because she is such an amazing teacher!!"
