It was our first lesson today: Kelly took the time to listen to my daughter patiently, even though my daughter stutters and is shy when speaking. I appreciate that she took time to make her feel comfortable.
Richard
Kelly is a great instructor!!! I first saw her perform with Lost Walks and then Juice of the Barley. Her istruction has been great covering these styles plus a lot of classical technique as well. She has really improved my playing.
Grace
Kelly is a great violin player and a really good teacher. She can play with begginers like me and help me understand the basics that I need to know.

I believe fundamentally that each student has a unique learning style and benefits from a tailored approach. I do not subscribe to a particular regimented program of study, rather I select the repertoire and etudes to match each student's needs. I believe in choosing both concert music and etudes to challenge individual deficits and work on skills that will apply broadly across the repertoire.

It is my goal to select level-appropriate repertoire to build on strengths, challenge weaknesses, and ensure that young violinists develop strong technical facility that enables them to develop into mature musicians with ease.

About Joshua

I am a professional orchestral violist and recording artist based in Long Beach, California. For the past two seasons I have primarily served as the assistant principal violist of the Pacific Symphony, while enjoying a flourishing freelance career in California and abroad. I have been fortunate to

Private Violin Teacher

I've been teaching violin for about 10 years and have recently received my Doctorate of Musical Arts degree in Performance from CU-Boulder. Having taught as a private teacher for younger students as well as a Teaching Assistant for a String Methods class in my undergrad, I am extremely comfortable working with a wide range of ages and skill levels. I teach using the Suzuki method, as well as basic music theory, note-reading, and other skills based on the student's needs and skill set.

Please note: in order to offer the best possible education for students, I am not offering online lessons for violin beginners who have no previous experience.

"I'm an adult learner who went through Suzuki book 2 and a few other pieces with Phoebe as my instructor. I spent a month prior with a "bad experience" and hadn't taken lessons in probably 10 years before that.

Working with Phoebe was GREAT. She was very easy to work with and really saw to improving my skills. She was encouraging and very positive. When I had troubles with parts (which was often), she would always have multiple suggestions as to how to practice them to work through the difficulties. She also gave me nudges along when I didn't think I could do certain things too. All in all, I had a great experience working with Phoebe and would have loved to continue to work with her if she was still in my local area.

If you're wondering why not 5 stars, that's more from my lack of experience than any issue with her. The guide says 5 stars is the "best teacher ever". She probably was the best teacher ever for me, but I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate. Is she a good fit for an advanced student, I'm going to guess that, yes, she is, but I don't know that info personally so I went with 4."

Violin Scales for Beginners [G Major Scale Tutorial & More!]

One of the most important aspects when learning how to play the violin is understanding scales. Learning scales will give you a solid foundation as you begin to explore new pieces of music. Violin Scales for Beginners Simply put, a violin scale is a series of notes, ordered by frequency or pitch, that span an octave (a consecutive set of eight notes.) For instance, to play a G scale, start by playing the lowest G on your violin (open G string.) Then, ascend up in pitch and play the note …

How to Measure the Success of Your Child’s Violin Lessons

When it comes to violin for kids, how can you tell if your investment and energy is worth it? Here, San Francisco, CA violin teacher Carol Beth L. shares her advice...   Parents and teachers want the best for their children and students. Both want to believe in their children's potential. So do the children themselves. All groups want the child to be successful. But not all of them measure success in the same way. When children, parents, and teachers disagree on what it means to be succ …

Introduction to Violin Music Notes

The violin is often considered by musicians to be one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Its roots trace back many centuries and it was clearly a definitive instrument in shaping classical music all over the world. One of the reasons it is considered a difficult instrument to learn is that it's a fretless string instrument, making violin music notes appear to be inexact, yet fingering must still be done with precision. The reward for learning this sweet-sounding elegant instrument, ho …
