I have been teaching violin privately and in the classroom for several years now. I am finishing up my education in violin performance, and I will be continuing to a master's degree in violin performance within the next year.

I try my best to adapt to my students individual learning styles. Everybody is different, and it's my goal as a teacher to have my students reach an understanding for music and hopefully grow to have a love for it as well.

I currently hold both a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance, and a Master of Music in Viola Performance. My passion is education. Helping each individual student find their own voice through the vehicle of music is my goal. My teaching priorities are centered around establishing solid techn

I specialize in new students!

About Travis

I grew up in Los Angeles and went on to attend the University of Redlands .While at University, I played in the University Orchestra and a variety of other ensembles. In addition to violin, I also studied jazz guitar, so classical music is definitely not the only musical style I am familiar with.

Great first lesson! Travis met me exactly where I was and showed me quite clearly where I was to go next. Everything made total sense, my fingers have their homework, and I'm looking forward to seeing how far we get!
Kimberley B.
Travis is a really great teacher. He explains everything in detail which helps a lot.
I am a beginner adult and am very happy taking lessons from Travis!
Justin
Travis is a cheerful, talented tutor who never fails to provide great, practical and simple to follow lessons which additionally are always fun to participate in. He's remarkably positive, and already I feel as though I have come on in leaps and bounds doing things with the violin that would have taken me an age to learn by myself. I hope that I continue learning with Travis for a long time to come.

I'm a classically trained Suzuki violin/viola teacher and although I teach classical technique, sight reading, orchestra coaching etc, I also specialize in pop/rock violin, bluegrass, country and folk music, as well as musical improv! I also play and teach mandolin, ukulele and voice, and I love to customize music lessons to fit the individual interests of each student. If you're interested in a multi-faceted approach to music and strings instruction in particular, I'm your gal! I also teach music theory and songwriting.

The teacher was amazing. My 8 year old kept telling me she didn't want to play violin anymore. I figured it was because of the instructor and I was right. Phoebe was on time, professional, educated, and super fun. I literally never heard my daughter play so smoothly. And when she left my girl gave her two thumbs up and did cartwheels and said she couldn't wait for her next lesson. We made the best choice with Phoebe. She's a really sweet girl and is extremely patient. Throughly satisfied and look forward to a million more fruitful learning experiences :)

Congratulations! I mean it! Looking for violin lessons is a big step, and the first to achieving your goals as a budding musician.

In your lessons with me, you will first learn proper set-up and technique, and we will mainly work from the Suzuki method books. Additionally, I will provide you with various scales, exercises, and "fun pieces" as you progress. I wholeheartedly believe that learning the violin should be enjoyable, and not a chore. So, wherever you are at with current skill level, and whatever your motives are for taking lessons, you can rest assured that we will have a great time together!

Lauren is a great teacher. Very patient, encouraging, stressing the basics while keeping you interested by teaching you new, interesting pieces.
Daniel
I have worked with Lauren for over a year now. I have found that Lauren is very patient and is willing to work with you to reach your goals and not just the goals of a book. Lauren works with you on a one on one basis to help you get where you want to go. Lauren is extremely knowledgable and always ready with a challenge to help you progress.
Catherine P.
I just completed my first lesson with Lauren. I was hesitant as to how it would go because I know nothing about the violin or how to hold the bow. With that said, even though it has only been one lesson, I have complete confidence that Lauren will help me reach the goals I am looking to achieve. She has a wonderful calmness that makes you feel relaxed and competent.

"It was my first lesson and now I have some idea how hold the violin and the bow. My homework is to practice a few notes on each string and then to practice playing the A scale. I think I can do it in two octaves. What is challenging is to play the scale without hearing a screeching sound. I'm looking forward to playing like Sarah Chang (hopefully after five lessons)."
