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 abrsm.org) 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.

Private Violin Teacher

Because I studied abroad — across three continents (Australia, UK, USA), I have a more worldwide perspective on violin performance practice. I also bring a flexible approach to my discipline, since my focus in classical music encompasses both traditional and modern repertoire. I am very intimate with the art of performance, as I am an avid recitalist and collaborator.
I was a Teaching Assistance/Fellow at UCLA for three years, and I have taught privately for the better part of a decade. The main tenet in my pedagogical philosophy has always been to allow a student to express their own voice, and to cultivate the discipline around their unique expression.

About Xenia

I am a violinist originally from Sydney, Australia. I graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium with a Bachelor in Music Performance, a Masters from the Royal Academy of Music, London, and a Doctorate from UCLA. As a performer, I have performed in Australia, New Zealand, China, UK, Europe, and USA.

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 :)

Milena taught me everything with a firm but gentle hand, and really pushed me to be the best I could be. Her lessons were really personalized to what I was capable of, and although I hit some rough spots it was usually because of my own practice habits. All in all, I’m very glad I had her as my teacher.
Bryce
Milena really knows her stuff. She’s very consistent and really focused on teaching. If you follow her instructions you will improve. Thank you for the lessons Milena! I promise I will get better at practicing!
Rashmi
My daughter has blossomed under Milena and has developed a real love for playing the violin. Milena has very high standards for her students and is supportive and encouraging. My daughter looks forward to her lessons each week.

In just this short amount of time that I have had lessons with Ms. Chiu, she has improved my awareness of mistakes and the wrong things to do greatly. She has already taught me me many extremely useful things that I had never even heard of before and they have all helped improved my playing! I know that after every lesson, I will have a lot of useful advice to implement into my practice.

If you are looking for a violin teacher, then look no further. We are so happy with Lucinda. On a professional level, she is a classically trained, well accomplished violinist who plays for the LA Opera. As a teacher, she is patient, methodical, responsible, humble and has a good sense of humor. She really makes it enjoyable and fun for her students every time. I really couldn't recommend her enough.

"We love Ms. Brown!

Ms. Brown is professional and kind, which is a wonderful way to learn a new skill like playing the violin. My daughters were taught by her years ago as young children and then we lost track of her. When we found her on TakeLessons, we signed up, willing to drive miles for her instruction. She is thorough, clear in instruction and so even tempered. What a great teacher!"

"Yakov Dyman has all the qualities necessary for teaching children, piano and violin. He is a disciplined craftsman, has a love for music and teaching and, most important, is able to transfer a passion for music to his students. My daughter had some rudimentary knowledge of the violin when she began to study with Yakov just over a year ago. Today she has good tonality, she practices with enthusiasm everyday and impresses friends and family playing pieces unexpected considering the short time she has been studying. The same is true of her bother on piano.
We feel, through Yakov's artistry, he inspires the kids to approach their music as musicians, not just music students."

"I had the opportunity to take violin lessons from Dr. Geronimo Oyenard for about three years. Dr. Oyenard is an amazing teacher with advanced knowledge of music, particularly violin. He is a patient, kind, knowledgeable, and punctual teacher who is always available and patiently improves his students' learning objectives.

In my case, I wanted to learn classical Persian music. Dr. Oyenard was skilled and patient enough to help me do so. During the years that I was Dr. Oyenard's student, I learned more about violin and performance than ever before.

Dr. Oyenard is an outstanding virtuoso and a thorough resource for any scholar of music and violin."

Mary is also very attentive to your needs and your development as a student. She knows when to allow for the errors that a beginner like myself will make, and when to present challenges that will push you, and show you that your skill and talent are growing. She also gives homework assignments that will help you grow your talent when you're in between lessons, which I really appreciate. I absolutely recommend Mary to anyone wishing to take music 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? …
