Dan has studied violin since age 4 in a specialized music school in Romania, and then he earned a Master's Degree in Music Performance from Lynn University. Dan can show you how to practice to achieve a professional level in music, or he can guide you in discovering music as a hobby.

He played as a soloist for the first time with a professional orchestra at the age of 10, and won multiple national and international violin competitions while in the National College of Art Ion Vidu. Dan arrived to the United States in 2000 with a full music scholarship.

Dan is a fantastic instructor! I am a 27 year old whom had never touched a violin in my life before Dan. Now I own a violin, practice every week, and can read basic music sheets. He is very knowledgeable, patient, funny, and flexible. If you're looking to learn a new instrument while having a good time, look no further my friend. What are you waiting for?

Need someone special to teach you...?

Having never even held a violin in my life, I was apprehensive about trying this, but Danut is not only an expert at playing the violin and has several different methods to teach different individuals, but is also flexible in conforming to what is best for each student. And, most importantly (for me) is that he is v-e-r-y patient. LOL I may never be a concert violinist, but I am achieving my goal of learning to play and don't think this would be happening with anyone else. Thank you Danut!

An Encouraging Mentor

I took lessons with Danut for around two years and found him to be an excellent teacher. He is a knowledgable and encouraging instructor, and he never falters in reminding me to be patient and practice slowly.
My lessons with Danut have greatly increased my understanding of violin technique and practice. I improved greatly under his instruction and I would sincerely recommend him to violin students of any age or level.

Hallie C.

Tampa, FL

Cello is known for its beautiful voice similar in range to the human voice. I have had extensive training in Cello performance and pedagogy and will help you to bring out the best in your cello voice, as well as teach a bit of music theory and history along the way!

About Hallie

Have you always wanted to learn how to play an instrument, but never knew where to begin? I can help you learn your instrument, and learn how to play the music that you love whether it be flute, piccolo, violin, viola, or cello. I can help you enjoy music.

Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old, and later joined the high school band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to t
ake this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excelled in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the Prague Film Orchestra. Even more recently I have been a teacher for the Flutes and Strings classes at Unison World School in Dehradun, India.

As you can see, having great international exposure to music I can teach you how to become more well-rounded in the beauty that is music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching varies with the age level of each student. With younger students, imitation is often one of the best methods of learning and I prefer the Suzuki method for students up to age 8, especially with strings. For older children and adults, learning music notation and basic music theory for a full understanding of musical language are more important to get them to the level where they can learn any music that they want to play for fun. For students who wish to excel in their school band, a more practical approach with technique specific warm-ups and exercises seems to be the best in general.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes music stands, sheet music, metronome, and seating for parents/students. No pets. Parking in lot.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide metronome, and tools for minor instrument repair. Students should provide their own music stands and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method, Taffanel et Gaubert, Patricia George

Hallie is friendly, enthusiastic and very encouraging, I look forward to each lesson because I know by the end I will feel great about what I achieve during that time.

I feel like my playing has progress so much further than when I was attempting to teach myself. As a shy adult beginner, Hallie's fantastic attitude makes is easier for me to learn as I don't feel as nervous as I normally would.

Jaime J.

Clearwater, FL

I am excited to begin teaching. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play and recognize basic scales and Arpeggios. In addition, an introduction to Rhythm will be presented to the student and as time goes on you'll be able to play beginner to intermediate level pieces. I am familiar with the Suzuki style and have the following tools available for your lessons: piano, music stands, metronome, etc. I love working with students and I can't wait to meet you!

About Jaime

Hi, there! My name is Jaime and I have recently started teaching private lessons and would enjoy helping students learn the Cello. I want my students to have a greater appreciation for the instrument and what it has to offer musically. I went to school at Clearwater Christian College and earned a B.S. in Biology and Minors in Chemistry and Bible. I have been playing for about 9 years. Currently, I play for my College Orchestra and String Ensemble. The following professors have taught me Cello: Dr. Carlos Audi, Mrs. Isabelle Sanderling-Besancon (Sarasota Orchestra), & Mr. Lowell Adams (Florida
Orchestra). Apart from my private Cello lessons, I have also received teachings from Dr. Lucas Guideri (Florida Orchestra) who also leads my String Ensemble. My method of teaching includes a combination of Essential Elements for Strings & the Suzuki Method. I am easy to get along with and open-minded to the needs of my students. However, I expect my student to be prepared beforehand and ready.

I came to Gonca as an adult learner and with absolutely zilch in the way of musical background. Gonca has been very patient with me, and impressed me with her ability to frame a lesson in several different ways to help me to understand a topic or skill, for example, sharing articles and cognitive tricks related to training when she heard me asking about the "why" of things often. She is incredibly talented, rigorous, and passionate as a teacher and as a musician. I recommend her to others at every opportunity.

Gonca was one of the best music instructors I had! As an adult learner, I had some hesitations taking classes. However, with Gonca's passion,encouragement and patience, I enjoyed the classes greatly and felt more confident about my skills. I would recommend her to any one I know at every age group.

I started playing the cello when I was 14 under Gonca's instruction. I am now 25 and proud to have been her student as long as I was. I was blessed with the fortune to study under a teacher with so much compassion and passion for teaching, as well as the wherewithal to tailor her teaching as I grew into an adult. Now I enjoy performing, and exploring the cello's repertoire as my skills continue to improve.
