Irish, folk and Bluegrass styles, tunes, scales, improvisation techniques

About Marc
I've been playing music since I was 14 years old. I studied classical guitar at State University in Buffalo, NY. and also studied guitar at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. I love just about every style of music. I mostly play Celtic, Bluegrass, American traditional, jazz, and classical. I also love to improvise.
My goal is to get my students results so they feel that they are really making progress. I do this by incorporating practice exercises, ear training and some music theory.
Music theory and reading music can be intimidating for beginning students. So I like to get you playing first and add theory a little at a time so you can better understand it through experience and it makes learning more fun.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio has a piano, acoustic guitars,mandolins and other instruments.Students receive sh

*** Travel Equipment ***
Sheet music and other written materials.

*** Specialties ***
I play a lot of Irish fiddle tunes and also know a lot of American Folk styles,popular music and some jazz. I play some classical pieces on the mandolin and some bluegrass. I consider improvisation one of my strengths.

He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.

About Kristen
My name is Kristen K. and I am an accomplished violinist and teacher from Lexington, Kentucky. I began my musical studies at age 7 and quickly discovered my passion and love for music. As a young musician, I attended numerous summer music festivals, participated in the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra. I was a winner of two concerto competitions, which gave me the opportunity to perform solos with the youth orchestra. I continued my studies at the University of Kentucky as a Violin Performance major and it was there that I discovered my love for teaching music! After completing my performance degree, I decided to also pursue a Bachelor’s in Music Education. During my college career, I served as a teaching assistant in the University of Kentucky String Project, I taught group and private lessons at several local middle and high schools, an
d also maintained my own private violin and viola studio. I was also awarded the McCracken Scholarship Award for Excellence in Music Education. The most rewarding part of teaching has been seeing my students continually improve and reach their goals!

In addition to teaching, I also am an avid performer. I have been a member of the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra for 7 years and was a member of the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra. I perform as a soloist, in chamber groups, and in orchestras regularly at various events and concerts. In the past few years I have attended international chamber music festivals in Prague, Czech Republic and in Lucca, Italy. I have also had the opportunity to perform with some of the world’s most renowned musicians including Itzhak Perlman, Midori, and Gil Shaham in additional to performing in the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and in Carnegie Hall in New York City. Studying music has provided me with many wonderful opportunities to learn and to grow. It is my goal to help students really love and enjoy playing music and develop the skills that allow us to share the magic of beautiful sound. Maintaining a high level of mastery as well as continuing to learn about the art of teaching are fundamentally equal and of highest priority for me. Through teaching music, I hope to inspire students and help them reach their potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is relaxed and understanding of where each student is at, while always maintaining a quick pace for learning new skills and always expecting the student to put forth their best effort. I am very encouraging and positive. I work with each student and his or her parents to determine short and long term goals and try to best provide the materials, instruction and motivation to achieve those goals!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, well lit, piano, music stands

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical music but I also teach bluegrass and fiddle. I particularly like the Suzuki Method for beginning to intermediate students, but when they become more advanced I begin to incorporate concertos and sonatas.

Kristen has taught my son since he was 5 years old, he is now 8 years old. We were nervous to be starting so young but he was constantly asking and Kristen immediately put use at ease. We have seen more progress and interest than we ever could have imagined when we initially said yes to violin lessons. Kristen is patient, friendly, flexible and so so so talented. It is definitely a huge added bonus that we get to hear her play!

About Mia N.

Close
Oakland, CA

View Full Profile

I emphasize tailoring lessons to the students' age level, ability, and learning style. Method books that I use vary depending on these factors. For my young beginners, I start with the Adventures in Violinland method books, which were written by my teacher, the famed pedagogue and Juilliard Pre-College faculty member Shirley Givens. I do also teach out of the Suzuki repertoire books as well as supplementing with scale books, shifting exercises, etudes for left-hand facility and bow technique, and more. In my studio, there is an emphasis on high standards for playing, strong practice techniques, music theory and ear training!

About Mia
Hi there!

I'm Mia, a professional violinist in the San Francisco Bay Area. I've been playing the violin for over 18 years, and bring with me 9 years of experience in private lessons, chamber music coaching, and music theory and ear training.

Here is a little bit about me as a teacher:

I believe that music is a powerful tool, and encourage my students to have fun while playing and practicing the violin! Studying the instrument teaches discipline, self-expression, dedication, and many other valuable skills.

My students range from young beginners to collegiate-level performers, and lessons have an emphasis on a high level of playing and building strong practice techniques, as well as fostering a love for music and self-expression. My students regularly perform in seasonal recitals, audition for regional youth orchestras, part
icipate in All-City Orchestra, and gain entry to the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts.

I offer private violin lessons through my studio in Oakland, California, but I am also available to travel to your home if it is in the Oakland/Berkeley area. If you are in San Francisco and would like private lessons, please contact me as I accept students in the city on a case-by-case basis.

Playing the violin is a challenging and rewarding endeavor, so I ask that my students commit to a weekly time slot and expect to practice every day; practicing and regular lessons are the best way to master the instrument and be satisfied with your own progress!

I do not provide a violin or the necessary accessories to my students, but I am happy to provide recommendations for where to acquire or rent them; please come to your first violin lesson with an instrument and bow, as well as tools like a shoulder rest, metronome, rosin, etc. I will provide sheet music for the first lesson or so, but expect to order the books that we will use after that point.

I have been on the faculty of Little Mission Studios, the Chamber Music Institute of the University of Maine, and a chamber music coach at the Kipp-Bay Academy. I currently maintain a studio at Inspire Music in SF with over 25 private students in addition to my home studio in Oakland, so it's easy to say that teaching the violin is a passion of mine!

About me as a performer:

Violinist Mia N-H is quickly gaining recognition as a versatile and dynamic performer in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her passion lies in pushing the boundaries of classical music through self-expression and collaboration with other musicians, composers, performance artists, and dancers. She has performed in major venues including Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, The National Arts Club, The Legion of Honor, and The Masonic, as well as on the world stage in Italy and Switzerland.

Mia has performed with leading artists and groups such as Opera Parallele, Brad Mehldau and Joshua Redman, Elevate Ensemble, David Kim, Gamelan X, David Tanenbaum, Bettina Mussumeli and Jean-Michel Fonteneau. She is also the resident violinist for the contemporary chamber music ensemble Wild Rumpus, a collective dedicated to the performance and commission of innovative new works.

In the realm of pop and indie music, Mia has recently collaborated with The Singer and The Songwriter on their track "Apparent Brightness", recorded for Marcus McCauley and Portrait Maker, and performed with Evanescence on their "Synthesis" tour at The Masonic.

Passionate about the creation and performance of new music, Mia has recently premiered works for Jake Heggie, JooWan Kim, Brian Fitzsousa, Nick Vasallo, and Dan Van Hassel. Her performances are often in conjunction with movement or performance art, most notably AXIS Dance company's piece "Radical Impact", performances at the SF Movement Arts Festival, and collaboration with the Juxtapositions Chamber Ensemble and Cellista.

Mia studied the violin with Shirley Givens and Akiko Silver, as well as at the Mannes Pre-College Program in New York City before moving to California in 2010. She earned her BM in 2014 and her MM in 2016, both from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music studying under the tutelage of violinist Bettina Mussumeli. While at SFCM, she was concertmaster of the Conservatory Orchestra and the recipient of the Sergei Barsukov Violin Scholarship. She has also studied chamber music with Mark Sokol, Mack McCray, and Paul Hersh, and has performed in masterclasses for eminent musicians such as David Kim, Sidney Harth, Claude Frank, Stefan Milenkovich and Daniel Philips.

Mia is one of the warmest and kindest violin instructors I have ever had. Not only is she a wonderful person- she is also an extremely skilled teacher!

With her help, I was able to play like I never have before! She helped me improve my sound and intonation so much!!

I hate that I moved away for work, I would still be taking lessons with her if I could!

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 the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, one of the best conservatories in the world. I've played often with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony, and I was the Concertmaster of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia for 6 years.

I'd like to pass on the knowledge gained from my years of playing in orchestras, chamber groups and solo concerts. My teachers taught me the most refined techniques of tone production and continually showed me how to make the music come alive emotionally and tell a story.

I've also play
ed a lot of music by contemporary composers, in groups like Network for New Music and Orchestra 2001 in Philadelphia, as well as Left Coast Chamber Ensemble in the Bay area. Some special tours I went on were with the Philip Glass Ensemble and with Tan Dun, the composer of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

My own compositional adventures started in the the late 1990's when I started improvising with a DJ mix in a small club. Since then I have experimented a lot with pickups and electric violin. I've created surround sound collages, improvised music for modern dance, and learned digital audio editing skills. I am knowledgable about Pro Tools and Ableton Live. If you are interested in electric violin, looping or using MIDI effects, I can share what I've learned about these things.

You can make music and be creative no matter what playing level you are on. I believe in having fun as you learn, and I stress learning by example and by ear. Reading music is good, too, but often that gets in the way of listening. We will build a foundation step by step and add on elements when you are ready. Also - I can help you be relaxed as you play. I have never had tendonitis or another occupational injury, thanks to good posture and technique. Body awareness is part of the process. Let's have fun- - you can do this!

NOTE: for students age 7 to 12, I require the parent to be present at the lesson and take an active interest in the student's progress. Also, the child must want to play this instrument.

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.

About Aviva
I am a professional violinist and teacher with 20 years of playing, and almost 10 years of teaching experience. This July, I received my Master's degree in violin performance from the Royal College of Music, the #1 performing arts conservatory in Europe and the UK.

I teach violin because it is my passion, because I love music, and because of the joy, confidence, and positive motivation my students experience over the course of their lessons. Every student is unique, and my approach tailors to the needs, questions, and interests of my students. Together, we develop strong technique, healthy posture and hand positions, a great understanding of music theory, quick note-reading and sight-reading skills, and a variety of tools to play beautifully and expressively.

In addition to my education, my teaching draws on extensive experience i
n orchestras, chamber groups, and as a soloist, across many U.S. states and abroad.

Viva Aviva!

I am an adult student that is new to the violin but I do play a number of other instruments.

Aviva is an exceptional instructor. So patient and so proficient. Aviava seems to have an innnate ability to know just when to be "picky" and when to perhaps "let a few mistakes" slide. The result . . . I am making consistent progress and know exactly where to focus my time and attention.

Aviva is a gentle but effective motivator and, as such, I alway look so forward to my weekly lesson - and I am definately inclined to work hard so as to try to "please" my teacher.

I have become all but obsessed with all things violin, and much of that is directly attributable to this delightful and talented maestro!

Please do not hesitate to work with her. I can absolutely promise you that you will be glad you did.

Have you been wanting to try the violin, but are afraid you don't have good pitch or rhythm? Let me help you sound good and feel good!

Learn to...
• Hold the violin comfortably
• Develop good pitch and rhythm
• Read notes and understand music theory
• Make the most out of practice time
• Feel good while playing

Whatever your musical abilities and knowledge, we can work together to get you where you want to be.

I have an M.M. in violin from Cincinnati Conservatory, and a PhD in ethnomusicology from UC Berkeley. I have performed in symphonies, Early Music ensembles, chamber music groups, and international folk dance bands, and I especially enjoy strolling violin. But my true passion is helping students like you have a rich and rewarding experience learning violin.

I look forward to hearing from you!

About Merav
I grew up in Israel listening to my parents' bluegrass band, and I enjoy playing everything from Old Time fiddle to klezmer. My training is classical, with an M.M. in violin from Cincinnati Conservatory. I believe that solid technique can give you a foundation for learning any kind of music. Although I have a particular course I recommend for beginners, I'm happy to help you learn whatever music inspires you.

I've always liked learning about music too, and I integrate music theory and history into lessons. Understanding the harmonic structure of a piece can help you learn it more easily, and knowing about the composer and the style can give you insight into how it might be performed. Together they create a richer learning experience.

My PhD in ethnomusicology from UC Berkeley allowed me to think about music in a social context, and I'
m especially interested in violin music around the world. I still teach musicianship at UC Berkeley and can help you with sight-singing if you like.

It is always a pleasure to see my students develop their skills and deeper interest in music. I believe that everyone can perform starting with simple solo pieces of 2-5 minutes long. This experience is rewarding for self development and artistic growth. I remember always playing for my classmates in high school and enjoying it a lot. Making new friends and sharing music is part of being musician and playing musical instrument. I enjoy creativity and imagination in playing music, since every melody has its personality and character, it is like an improvisational storytelling with different narratives. When teaching, it is very important to feel comfortable and and to have proper posture. I always make sure that my students play freely without any tension. This is quite interesting topic and complex, so in a few words, before to start playing the instrument it is essential to know how your body and muscles work.  I took Alexander technique class at IU which helped me to realize the ...
