No two students are ever alike. I've learned that using only one method may not benefit all students. Therefore, I use a variety of methods, some of which include Hanon, the Bastien Series, Suzuki technique for Piano and Violin, and countless others depending on what the student wishes to achieve. I have found that my most successful (and satisfied) students are the ones that express to me their specific musical goals, and then I am able to find a combination of methods to help them practice, rehearse, and refine their style of interest.

Lesson Style
Lessons are uniquely tailored to the students' goals, be it to become functional with an instrument or to dominate at an audition. We will go through warm-ups that will place emphasis on technique, explore various methods so that the student may decide which one gets them the best result, and then work through the repertoire not only for proficiency, but also for interpretation, precise yet passionate phrasing, and of course, to ...

Great first lesson. Very knowledgeable and focuses on fundamentals and making sure you understand the actual inner workings of your voice, throat, and diaphragm.

It's been a great experience to have lessons online. Although it lasted 45 minutes, I have seen that these types of lessons are very useful and practical. Thank you for providing these lessons!

Private Violin Teacher

If I were to say 15 years on the violin, that would be a shocking time. I did earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Music where I received most of my education in both violin and piano. In my perspective, the violin is such an intricate instrument and I am blessed to work with students in wanting to learn violin. It’s true where putting the hard work in violin takes you where you need to be. It does require Practice! I am willing to work with the student and help them grow in advancing this instrument. Let’s keep in touch!

We had the privilege of having Ms. Angelica as my 10 year old's piano and violin teacher. She was patient, funny and an excellent music teacher. She knew exactly what to do to keep my daughter interested and engaged. My daughter looked forward to every session she had with her.

My goal is to create a positive learning environment that addresses a student's specific needs. I focus heavily on increasing a student's critical thinking skills so that they can easily problem solve during their practice sessions, increasing their ability to grow as a musician.

I have five years of teaching experience, with age groups pre-k to high school. Last year, I received my masters degree in violin performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Thanks for your consideration and I'm looking forward to working with you!

About Amanda

As someone who has been playing the violin for 18 years, I know that searching for a teacher that is amazing and effective is not an easy task. There are so many violin teachers out there that the choice can be overwhelming. How do you know that these teachers will be a good fit? Are they worth it?

I worked with Amanda for almost a year until I had to relocate outside the area and she has been very professional and has always been flexible with schedules. As an adult learner who took basic lessons in the past, she was very patient and helpful throughout the entire learning process from holding the bow to tuning the violin. Highly recommend and would definitely continue taking classes!

Not only do I have certification in specifically private lessons, but I have a very wide range of experience. I have played classical music, quartet music, new compositions, avant-garde pieces, and also in jazz and rock bands. I taught music professionally in public schools for 5 years, and I've been teaching privately for 7. I'm an active professional performer, as well as a composer, and the former principal violist of The Parker Symphony.

About Andrew

I love music, and I love teaching music. I have been actively involved in the music industry since 2008, performing in classical concerts, quartet performances, and even rock and indie bands. I love passing my expertise on and igniting a passion for playing in others.

"Josephine is just the violin teacher I was looking for!

Every lesson includes scales and etudes along with a couple of songs to work on. Her teaching is attentive to detail and well-rounded (spot-on technique, music reading, easily-digestible theory, etc.), while still really fostering enjoyment in playing and slow but steady growth. Whether you’re looking for classical violin, fiddling, or bluegrass, Josie will help you learn whatever you want to learn!

I definitely recommend a longer class time if you can do it - a few extra run-throughs of each song and scale make a big difference in your muscle memory and ability to practice efficiently on your own.

Of the few violin teachers I've had in my sporadic years of playing violin, Josie has inspired me to play the most, and I know I will continue taking lessons with her for as long as I can. Highly recommended!"
