Private Violin Teacher

I am an outgoing, positive teacher who has a passion for music and for sharing this passion with students in a fun and relatable way. I don't approach every student the same way - as unique individuals, I learn about the student's goals and personality, and will create customized lessons based on the information and relationship we form. Knowledge of the instrument, music theory, and basic fundamentals are building blocks of any lesson, but the sky is the limit!!

About Regina

I was inspired to play the violin after seeing the local middle school orchestra perform when I was 8 years old. Since beginning group violin lessons the following school year, I have been consistently involved in developing my passion for and involvement in music in versatile ways -participating i

Shahrzad has a way of keeping my 11 y.o. son engaged throughout the entire lesson. He has fun, but at the same time he is being challenged. He practices without us even asking,. He will start orchestra in middle school this year and I know he will be ready!
Shirley Y.
Shahrzad was excellent. She teaches with great passion and knows what to point out on my weakness. Not only is she thorough, she also knows when to demonstrate the piece of music. I really enjoyed my lesson with her. Thank you.

Alethia is great. She is working with my 7 yr. old daughter as a beginner in violin. She teaches in a way that is fun, appropriate, and respectful. My daughter has already learned so much and looks forward to her lessons with Alethia each week.
Lynne R.
Alethia is very knowledgeable about technique and skilled at teaching.
Mark N.
Alethia is a very talented teacher and violinist. She is extremely professional, attentive and accommodating to her students needs/goals. As an older student with no musical background, she has made the violin less intimidating and more accessible by breaking it down and making it less complex and easier to understand. While, I've only been with her a few years, I'm very proud of the progress I've made with her. If you are interested in taking up the violin, I highly recommend her.

This was truly a great experience for my grandchild. Students not only learned the proper techniques to become an excellent violinist but also music appreciation. I was quite impressed that the instructor taught the students about various composers around the world. Students gained knowledge about classical to jazz.
Xiaoshuang
Our experience with Amara is of the best among all violin teachers we have had. She is patient and friendly with kids, which really helps get the kid “into” the class; she listens, and will “customize” the class based on the parent’s feedback/kid’s personality; most important, we feel that she is devoted to teaching, for example, she will spend extra time to record practice spot videos for the students. I am confident my daughter will advance a lot with Amara.

Amara is patient, thorough and clear. She teaches at a high level.

The Reasons I Love Violin

By Erin C. - San Diego Violin Teacher

As an instructor teaching violin lessons in San Diego, CA with over 10 years teaching experience, I want to express my love for the violin. Violin has been a part of my life since I was about 5 or 6 years old. During the summer of my senior year of high school I took my violin on a mission trip to Honduras, Central America. The music changed lives and in turn changed mine and the way I look at music. It was then I knew I wanted to continue with violin and use my talent to help others through teaching and ministry.

I often ask my students why they chose to take violin lessons over any other instrument. Some respond “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” others say “I want to play beautiful melodies,” and for the young ones it’s usually “I want to play the fast, hard parts.” What parents and students alike don’t always count on is how long it will take to achieve those goals. I ask my beginner students and their parents to try it for three months before deciding anything. Violin is an amazing instrument but you must be willing to learn correct posture, coordination, rhythm, note reading, and different styles and techniques of bowing to achieve the truly beautiful sounds of the violin. Now I’m not saying it’s too hard, but like any instrument, academic, or other extracurricular activity “Practice makes perfect.”

Students, set goals and determine in your minds not to give up and to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. Parents, I encourage you to take an interest in your student’s music education, it will help them learn. Be a vital part of achieving their goal. Being involved is as simple as showing up to lessons, taking notes, asking questions that enable you to help them practice at home.

If you are between the ages of 3-99 and interested in taking local violin lessons, I encourage you to view our teacher’s bios. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, our San Diego TakeLessons Violin Teachers will customize lessons to fit your needs.
