Private Violin Teacher

In my private violin/viola studio, I am helping my students to love the learning process. If a student wants to play an instrument for their enjoyment, he comes to me. If students have ambitions to get prepared for the test or audition, they know they will get help. For students who would like to prepare for the evaluating test, I contribute to preparing for the ABRSM (Associated Board of School of Music) exams. If a student is a beginner, I teach using the Suzuki Method.

I love helping students to achieve what they want. By learning their abilities, I help them to enjoy playing an instrument.

Our family loves Matthew. He's brought music back into our home and even my 3-year-old enjoys being a part of my lessons. I've had my great-grandfather's violin since I was 10, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Matthew 3 years ago, that I really started to play and understand foundational scales, key signatures and positions. It's opened up a whole world for me, and now I love playing the violin. For the legacy, the beautiful music and the joy it brings into my life and our home.
Eliza James
Matthew is a fantastic teacher. I’ve known him for 20 yrs and have had many lessons. I recommend him for any level and students of any age. If you want to rekindle your love for music Matthew is your perfect teacher.

Chris was very patient with me. I had special challenges due to be an older student that started later in life. We communicated very well--asking and answering questions. Chris knew how to help me as I am challenged with intonation. He did not let me slide which is an excellent quality in an instructor.

When I had questions or problems that we were not able to figure out between the two of us he went to his instructor to ask. He was not afraid to admit that he didn't know. He respected me as a scientist who had challenging questions.

Overall, I highly recommend Chris as an instructor for viola.
Zach
Chris is super knowledgeable, flexible to make lessons work over Skype, and attentive to make sure the lessons are tailored to what I am trying to learn as a growing pianist. I’ve had a great experience, grown a lot, and look forward to more lessons!

5 Maintenance Tips for Violin Bows

All musical instruments require attention and maintenance. When it comes to the violin, however, it is easy to forget that the bow needs as much care as the instrument itself. After all, the way you treat your violin bows will affect the way the violin sounds. If too much resin builds up on the hairs, for example, the sound will come out wrong. While it may not be as costly to repair or replace violin bows, why waste money when it’s easy to keep your violin bows in good working condition? …
