Every student is unique, so I will tailor the lessons to you and make it fun! I'm passing on to you the training I received from the very best master teachers of the violin. Stringed instruments are challenging, but I believe in enjoying making music at every level, while establishing a strong foundation in good technique. For learning fundamentals of music theory and ear training, we will play various rhythm and improvisational games. I have extensive background in European classical music, and I've also done quite a bit of improvisation, some fiddling, and electric violin and viola. Whether you want to be the next Joshua Bell or the next Lindsey Stirling, I can help you improve your playing. I will help you sing, dance and tell a story through your violin or viola.

About Gloria

Born into a musical family in 1966, I have extensive performance experience as a classical violinist and violist, and I've been composing my own music since 2000. I am very grateful to have studied with some of the finest teachers of violin, viola and chamber music, and I graduated in 1990 from th

Gloria has been a wonderful and inspiring teacher over a period of very formative years for me as a violinist. We first worked together for all 4 years of my undergraduate violin performance degree at Mills College from 2010-14, and Gloria helped me develop a lasting appreciation for listening deeply and developing focus for small details. We worked together on everything from solo Bach and Hindemith sonatas to concertos, chamber music, and orchestral excerpts. She has been a lasting influence in my life as a musician, and I will continue to return for musical and creative advice over the years even when I live far away.

It is my goal as a teacher to "decode" each individual student's personal learning style. I strive to create a fun and safe learning environment and to instill the values of lifelong learning, curiosity, and self-improvement in my students. My primary goal as a teacher is make playing the violin easy and fun.

My teaching begins with a strong technical foundation. Having strong basics allows the violinist to play their instrument with ease, having the freedom to play musically and creatively. I provide students with a balance of scales and arpeggios, etudes and technical exercises, and classic repertoire, and supplement with fiddle, pop, and jazz tunes, according to the student's interests.

I firmly believe that students can begin learning a musical instrument at any age. While I love working with children, I have developed a specialty in teaching adult beginners. The majority of my students are adult learners between ages 25-65 who are either learning an instrument for the ...

Megan is so pleasant and fun! She has strong focus on technique, and explains these practices in a way I can understand. Since I am a beginner, and adult learner, it's important that my music teacher is patient and cheers me along throughout the process - Megan definitely has that gift. I also appreciate that she writes down technique tips and exercises for me to practice at home (so I remember what she taught me in class.) I'm looking forward to continuing to learn from Megan, and play music beautifully on my Viola one day.

Megan is the perfect fit for my quirky son who loves music and playing instruments. Patient, kind and makes it fun!

Very friendly and explains concepts very clearly. I had a great lesson and learned so much! When I went home to practice all that I had learned my violin playing was cleaner than it had ever been!

"Great violin teacher. As an adult student, I was looking for a teacher with good qualifications and teaching ability and Kan has met all expectations. She tailors lessons to fit your needs and she was very understanding of my weird work schedule. I sought lessons to learn proper technique and mechanics and feel that with her lessons I've definitely improved from when i started and am on the right track moving forward. She relates her instructions to things you're familiar with so that you can easily understand how and why things are done. She is very active during lessons whether its playing background with you or making sure you're not swinging your shoulder. She is as interested in your progress as you are."

What Are the Best Violin Brands for Beginners?

When you’re first starting to look for a violin brand, it's important to find a compromise between affordability and good quality. It’s not always smart to buy the cheapest model available, as not only is this likely to produce a poor sound and hamper any incentive to practice or progress, but it's likely to lose a lot of value on the resale market - it's worth bearing in mind that student models will be resold at some later date, whether you're moving onto something better, or to another in …
