In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

About Elias

At 5 years old I was struck by the incredible beauty of Vivaldi's music, and ever since I've been playing violin. I hold a BA from Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences, won a scholarship to the Baroque Performance Institute in 2005 and attended the BPI again in 2006. Apart from teaching, as a profe

I am very impressed with Elias! He listened well, offered helpful suggestions, laughed and was very congenial to work with. We discussed how to hold a bow and, since I have some arthritis in my hands, he was very open to other possible options that might work better for me. Taking lessons from him will be a bright spot in my week. I would recommend him in a heart beat!
Gene
A fun and informative lesson. Looking forward to the next one.

Elias is great! My daughter is 7 and this was her first exposure to violin lessons. She loves Elias, says how patient and nice he is, and can’t wait for her next lesson each week. I highly recommend him!

We are so thankful we found Patrick! Patrick is a very effective teacher who’s able to relate and motivate students.

We are very greatful that she’s back to loving piano and continuing to learn.

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.

Brynn was such a great teacher for my daughter! She was engaging and supportive throughout the lesson. Her knowledge about music and the viola is phenomenal! My daughter is so excited to connect with Brynn for her lessons each week.
Salome
It was our first lesson and as a parent I trust Brynn to position my daughter to be a great violin player. As she instructed my child she also made sure that I understood what she was teaching so that I can assist her with practices at home. This was very forward thinking and I appreciated her sharing her knowledge with me! My daughter has a great time!

Music is a gift for everyone to enjoy and it deserves nothing less than your best effort – my philosophy:
My goal is to provide quality musical instruction in a positive and supportive environment, for my students to achieve a degree of technical facility appropriate to their personal musical goals, and to find joy and interest in the process of learning and practicing. I will always be supportive of a student’s musical journey and personal enrichment, but ultimately their success and fulfillment will depend on their individual efforts in lessons and individual practice. While technical improvement is a primary focus of lessons, above all, I want the process of music making to be an enjoyable and positive experience! I believe music lessons should be enriching for the mind and body and never detrimental or negative.

About Will

Hello! My name is Will - I have been playing the violin for 17+ years and have been playing professionally in regional orchestras since 2012. I am passionate about music and and want to help others improve their playing and find joy through the violin!

"Simply an amazing teacher

I've always wanted to play Violin but was always intimidated by the instrument, especially when I finally bought one and picked it up for the first time.

My intimidation went away when I started taking lessons with Kelvin.

Kelvin provided all of the necessary steps and guidelines along the way from my first note to my first song and did it with many examples that I can perfectly relate to.
He keeps things simple yet very complex at the same time.
The way he teaches is very easy to understand.
He can instantly notice a mistake if I've made one and he is able to correct it easily.

And through all of this, every lesson I take with him is very fun and exciting.
Kelvin is truly a professional and it is wonderful to be able to learn to play violin from him."

She has a great way of "scaffolding" the learning, so that Kate is almost always at the edge of her abilities.... not too easy and not too hard.

She especially enjoys the variety of music that Kendra encourages her to play."

How Can I Make Practicing Violin Scales More Effective?

No matter how much students may groan when it comes to scales, they are very important for all beginners to know, particularly for the violin.
