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

She is a great instructor! My 14 yr old daughter is a beginner and she has been wonderful with her. She is professional, warm, and always helpful. I don't know much about the violin, but I never have to remind my daughter to practice the music that she is given.

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.

I have been teaching the violin/fiddle to children and adults for 9 years. My speciality is in teaching young children and youth. I do teach methods that are appropriate to their level, whether they are beginners or have been playing for a while. I love teaching adult beginners as well, we all need a good start with a firm technique base for left and right areas (violin and bow) of playing the violin. I teach from the concept of Musicianship: warm ups to prevent injury, correct techniques for playing, and using theory books and violin method books that are creative and easy to follow and understand, both for children and adults. I teach note-reading as well as aural learning because a student, young or older, needs both music notation and ear training to gain the best possible perspective on learning this instrument and having fun. As a teacher, I love being creative in lessons, it's very important and helps the student to assimilate the techniques and pieces so they can move ...

Diane is an amazing teacher!! My two daughters (8 and 12yrs old) have been taking lessons from Diane for over 2 years and they love her lessons! Diane is very kind-hearted, very positive, and patient. They have a great violin rental and purchasing program with a very reasonable price and her husband as a professional luthier, setting up all the instruments for us and whenever the kids need to switch a violin size, they take care of it. We are very happy with Diane and it's hard to find a teacher like her.
Nancy
Was my first violin lesson today, and Diane is very thorough and easy to follow. She is excited about the violin and not just a teacher so I already know that I have a great teacher. I am so excited about my journey with her!
Amber A.
Diane is a fabulous teacher!! When my daughter wanted to start violin and fiddle I knew I would need to know something about violin to help her at home. So, Diane taught my 5 year old and me. Diane really has an amazing bond with my daughter and has truly become one of our family... She makes the lessons fun and engaging for my daughter... She takes a personal interest in her students and gears the lessons to their level. Diane is always willing to work with you when it comes to schedules as well, for example: summer time vacations.... I highly recommend Diane as an instructor. She knows her instrument, her theory, and how to convey the information to adults and small children. We have now been taking lessons for a couple of years and my daughter still looks forward to them and that is due to the investment that Diane has personally made in their relationship!

Private Violin Teacher

In my one hour of comprehensive teaching, students learn extensively the techniques of the violin, including tone production, vibrato, musicality and pieces of music which are chosen from standard violin literature or Suzuki books. The whole idea is to get students to look at the whole learning process as a fun activity, and very soon they acquire the ability to produce beautiful sounds, correct intonation and strong vibrato. In addition to the above, I conduct some some ear-training exercises to improve intonation as well.

Nader was fantastic! I took Violin lessons for a few years from a couple different teachers, and he taught me new, interesting things I'd never learned before. He's also very patient and nice.
Carolina V.
He is very patient and has excellent communication skills. I have no knowledge of how to play the violin or music of any kind. After my first lesson I strongly feel he will be my private instructor for many years to come. I left with proper technique of how this instrument is to be cared for and good posture when practicing. He also informed me of the books we will be incorporating into my lessons. Most importantly homework is given and he is very patient and explains everything at your level.
Kira
I was very pleased with my first lesson with Nader. He is very kind and patient. We covered some basic points with what we'll be covering for my lessons with the cello. His instructions and explanations of technique is very clear I feel my lessons with him will be very beneficial and enjoyable.

I teach violin / fiddle not through one method or genre but a unique blend of various styles, each one taking a fundamental seat in a broader performance curriculum. For example, beautiful classical pieces form our most baseline technique while country western or bluegrass make for a strong and agile bow, not to mention having some tricks to merry up the campfire or front porch gatherings. Pop / Blues / Jazz and Rock n Roll are perfect genres for prospective improvisors and future stage performers. From Lindsey Stirling to Charlie Daniel's Band to Stephane Grapelli I enjoy teaching towards the goals and dreams of every student.

At age 18, she moved to New York City and made a living primarily as a street performer, playing  jazz standards in the Subway and Central Park.    She began studying jazz violin at The New School for Contemporary Music, and perform

Kelly is a very talented and skilled violin player. She makes the lessons very relaxed and is great at teaching online, I've found the lessons so useful as I'm a complete beginner at the fiddle. She's extremely knowledgeable and knows all there is know about the violin/fiddle, I can not reccomend her enough.
Rachel
Kelly is a wiz at the fiddle, and just a music genius all together. She has taught me so many things that have helped me with my skills, and makes it feel easy. She’s also very patient, which makes me feel at more comfortable with the learning process. Anyone would be very lucky to have her for their teacher!

"My son has been learning violin lessons from Jonathan since the summer of 2014 when he was 10. We are so fortunate to find Jonathan at takelessons.com and very happy and grateful to have him as a private tutor throughout the years. Jonathan is a brilliant musician and passionate violinist, very professional. He is really good at teaching, very patient and detailed. Whenever my son made a mistake, he would immediately point it out and show him the right way to do it and have him practice time and time again until he got it right. He would also write notes on my son’s music sheet to remind him things he needs to pay attention to during his practice at home. Jonathan also organizes recitals regularly for all his students to gather together and play in a concert like atmosphere and interact and learn from each other, which is really a wonderful experience. Jonathan can be reached easily by text message, email or phone and we have never run into any problem rescheduling a lesson or anything else. I highly recommend Jonathan for anyone who wants to learn violin or music in general."

"Steve Maloney is a true master at both playing and teaching the violin. I have had some teachers in the past who were great players but lousy at teaching, but Steve is the Real Deal. My playing had immediately and significantly improved since my first lesson and only continues to improve. I had many deficiencies both technically and musically and Steve has provided me with practical solutions to rectify my once poor technique and bring out a much more refined musicality from my playing. I highly recommend Steve Maloney as violin instructor."

What's the Best Violin for Fiddle Playing?

When someone decides to learn to play an instrument, one of the first things to do is to look into buying the instrument. This process varies depending on the instrument, and is especially unique when it comes to buying violins, or fiddles. Many instruments are mass produced in factories, producing batches that all sound the same. On the contrary, fiddles are not usually built this way.  The best sounding ones are handmade, and therefore, all unique.  When musicians are looking to buy a …
