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!

I would assess the student's capability and begin with the level appropriate for the student. For new students with no experience, I would start out with simple hand positioning and playing the piano firsthand. We'll learn as we go with fine details of reading notation and techniques. I will introduce one or two subject to cover for each lesson. For students that have more experience and are at the beginner level, I will introduce technical practices and assign a piece of music. As for intermediate and advance, we will cover technical practice, assigned music, and music theory.

My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!
Kevin and Ella M.
My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

I teach each student differently, have for many years. Beginning, intermediate or advanced. Some teachers start everyone out with the same boring "Twinkle twinkles Little Star" type book, even adults. I teach accordingly to their abilities. You get better at teach, by teaching for years, period! I have been playing since 1977, and teaching since 1995. I hope to "Hear you Here".

About Joseph

I have been playing since 1975, and been teaching guitar since 1995. Played in many bands since 1980. I write and record my own music in my recording studio. I currently perform solo at various places. I am well versed at chord, scale and music theory.. plus I'M FUNNY!! (that is free though).. :)

I especially enjoy introducing beginners of all ages to the ukulele, which was my first musical passion as a young child! These days, my passion is working with my students in ways that prepare them to pursue their musical interests armed with correct posture and hand position, foundational technique, music-reading capabilities, and what I call the "building blocks" of music: knowledge of functional music theory and how to use it.

"Functional music theory" can sound daunting, but in fact it is fascinating, at least the way I teach it, using analogies appropriate to the age of the student, from chords like different types of sandwiches (yum!) to chord progressions like the materials and equipment used to build a house.

I also encourage my students from the start to EXPRESS themselves musically, emotionally, playfully, in ways that keep their imaginations engaged in their musical studies, rather than private lessons becoming stressful or tedious.

Note that young beginners ...

Teresa is an amazing music teacher! This was my first time getting singing lessons, and I was really nervous going into it, but she did such a great job at helping me feel more comfortable in the beginning. She’s so kind and she’s a great teacher too. The techniques and skills that she taught me have been extremely helpful, and she teaches them in a really easy-to-understand way. I would definitely recommend her!

I studied jazz/fusion guitar at Berklee College of Music and have played with more people in more situations than I now remember.

I love working with students at all ability levels. My passion is bringing out the artistry in my students and teaching them that music can be something that feeds your soul for the rest of your life. Any level of player can do this and I am excited to help you put your voice into your playing!

Mike came recommended through a friend and it's been an incredible experience so far! He's super friendly through his professionalism and was immediately able to assess my past musical experience and learning style- something that I've always taken note of and appreciated. Would absolutely refer to any level of ability/experience.
Tony
Mike was a fantastic instructor. He had the perfect balance of encouraging me in my strengths while also challenging me where needed, which pushed me to grow as a musician. He’s highly knowledgeable in the fundamentals and also has great innovative and creative ideas that he’s happy to share! I would definitely recommend getting lessons from Mike!
Ethan
Mike is an incredibly knowledgeable musician with a genuine knack for teaching. Mike catered our lessons to exactly the material I wanted to learn while helping me grow a deeper understanding of music theory in a way that was both highly informative and fun! I will absolutely be returning for more lessons and would recommend him to anyone looking to pick up the guitar for the first time or that wants to expand on their existing abilities

I have long realized it takes me more time to develop than other students. After working with Stephanie, eventually I was able to start social dancing.
