I use many methods including Suzuki, Kodaly and traditional teachings that include catered practice plans in order to accommodate each student's learning needs. I am very flexible and more than happy to discuss teaching methods and/or special needs with parents and students.

About Alethia

Growing up I was raised in a home full of music. My father, a graduate of the Conservatorio Nacional Superior de Musica (National conservatory of Superior Music) played piano day and night and from there my love for music blossomed. My first experience with music was at the age of 8 when I began to

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.

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.

Private Violin Teacher

I have been playing and teaching the violin professionally for all of my adult life. I trained in the UK, where I gained a violin teaching diploma, and since then I have performed and recorded with many well known ensembles and have taught both privately and in educational institutions.
In my lessons I aim to achieve an informal environment for my students and I teach technique, music reading and interpretation as well as general music appreciation. I give lessons to beginners through to advanced levels.
I strongly believe music to be an art and a very important means of self expression.

About Pierre

I graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and joined the BBC Midland Radio Orchestra. From there I joined the English String Orchestra as Sub Leader touring the USA and Europe and making many recordings. Whilst working with the ESO I developed an interest in the Baroque violin and joined

Daren was incredible with our first time violin player. He helped our son learn the basics and explore his interest in violin. After 5 lessons we were sold that our son would want to stick with learning violin.

Apart from being an exceptional violinist, Daren is friendly, personable and a great teacher. I had never played the violin before but he broke things down in a way that made sense to me. His tips and foundational instruction brought results by the end of just the first lesson. I'm excited to learn more!

"BEST TEACHER EVER! Seeri started our son with violin when he was 8 and a half. He has been thriving since and got into a great orchestra less than a year after beginning violin (another orchestra than his school's)! Seeri is an incredible blend of an exquisite person and a superbly focused and intense teacher. She is a natural with children (and my son is hard to lead): kind yet firm, playful at times but always keeping the child on the track of the present learning and practice. She also teaches everything, music reading and theory included. A pure gem."
