My daughter, Katie, started her first violin lessons this year with Lisa. I wasn't sure if she was going to enjoy playing the violin as she is only 6 yrs old and pretty lively (hard to keep her still!), but Katie loved Lisa from the start. Lisa is friendly, patient, and easy going with Katie. Within a couple of months, Katie was already practicing her second song and sight reading her music. Lisa is a great violin teacher!

Patient

Lisa is so patient with my active 5 yr old. She keeps my daughter interested in coming back!
JaymeM
very patient teacher!

Lisa is very patient! My son is a typical 8 yr old boy with lots of energy and she is very good at keeping him focused. She is also very good at working on 1 thing at a time and not overwhelming students with no music experience. I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning violin.

About Helen

I have been teaching students of various ages for many years, while also performing with The Colorado Symphony and the Highlands Square Ensemble (string quartet). The process of learning the viola should be enjoyable. The youngest child can enjoy games, and novel ideas to keep them interested

Helen McDermott
Exceptional Violist, Masterful Teacher

Helen McDermott is an exceptionally talented violist who is also a masterful, empathetic teacher. She brings a truly unique combination of technical virtuosity, pedagogical professionalism, and psychological insight into the music studio. I know this from personal experience because I have greatly benefited from being one of her viola students.
Her vast experience as a professional violist gives her a wealth of technical knowledge, not only about how to play the viola but, more importantly, how to play beautiful music with this instrument. She has studied, and continues to study, different teaching methods, drawing from all of these approaches to develop a program of instruction designed to meet each student’s individual needs. She also connects empathetically with her students, creating an atmosphere of collaboration and mutual respect that alleviates anxiety, thereby allowing genuine learning to take place.
In short, her breadth and depth of expertise, in both musicianship and pedagogy, make her an ideal viola teacher who guides students on their path to realizing their full potential as a violist and as a complete musician.

Private Violin Teacher

I began teaching violin lessons privately 5 years ago and have had as many as 40 students at one time. I have had many beginner students of all ages, and welcome students of any age or level. I approach each one of my students individualistically, focusing on the kind of music that interests and excites them most, while also providing material and exercises to help strengthen the students’ musicianship and technical proficiency on the instrument. I believes in bettering my student’s abilities through encouragement and positive reinforcement, guiding them to find a love and commitment to music. I understand that above all else, music should feel fun and rewarding and serve as a way to express yourself. If you're not having fun, you're missing the point! I have taught classical music, jazz, fiddle, and pop, and have a background in the Suzuki Method.

About Livia

I am a violinist of 21 years formally trained in both classical and jazz music. I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2015, where I received my Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance, studying under performer and pedagogue Dr. James Stern (D.M.A., The Juilliard School.)

Livia was great with my daughter! She has a wonderful personality and made the lesson really enjoyable.
Teresa
Livia was my sons violin teacher for 3 years. We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. My son started when he was in third grade with a different teacher, and it was not a good match. Livia came and met my son and they clicked right away. I asked my son (now in 7th grade) what to say in this review, he said that Livia is a great teacher, he learned a lot, and he had tons of fun. She has a laid back and patient manner. Because of her I believe he will have a lifelong love of violin. I give her my highest recommendation.

Want to find a comfortable way of playing the violin with confidence, fullness of breath, and ease? Want to develop your ears and violin technique so you can effortlessly play anything you hear or see on a page? I have taught violin for 10 years, including 2 years at the college level, hold 3 classical performance degrees from internationally renowned musical schools, have studied jazz violin and piano extensively, and have spent years developing my skills in singing, composition, and improvisation. My experience teaching yoga and meditation, as well as my experience as a collegiate track and field athlete give me the tools to help my student overcome tightness, shallow breathing, and lack of confidence. My diverse skill set, my love of music and teaching, and my immense care for my students help me to cater to each student's needs and enable me to inspire every student to find their own musical voice and the joy of sharing music.

I received my Bachelors degree from UCLA, Masters from Eastman School of Music, and Artist Diploma from the Royal Conservatory Glenn Gould School, all specializing in violin performance.

Michael is a great teacher. He has creative methods of teaching violin based on ear training and relaxation which builds strong foundation of violin playing for students.

Michael is an exceptional teacher. My wife and I began to learn the violin with Michael. Not only is he an extremely talented musician but also patient teacher. I would highly recommend him.
Joe B.
Michael is a great teacher for students of all ages. He is patient and innovative, and was able to help me overcome shortcomings that I had developed from when I played years ago growing up. The breadth and depth of his experience in music performance and teaching, combined with his competitive athletics experience and meditation skills, allows Michael to develop in his students a broader foundation for success. His ability to draw from a variety of music genres and teaching methods helped me to be a better musician and to enjoy playing the violin again.

"I had the delight of taking small group workshops with Omer at jazz weekends.
Aside from being an amazing performer, he is a fantastic teacher - explains and demonstrates in a very clear fashion, has lots of patience, and stimulates his students to work hard and to want to learn as much as they can from him.
Highly highly recommend him as a teacher!"

"Being a teacher of young children myself, I know when children are responsive to a teacher and when a teacher is responsive to her students. I have had the fortunate opportunity to witness Jill’s remarkable violin teaching style many times. Using an approach that is creative, spontaneous and joyful, Jill combines the deep knowledge of her craft for both playing and teaching violin. Jill has developed a unique and dynamic teaching philosophy which captures the best of a learning experience. She is able to offer each student exactly what is needed to be successful. And how does one measure success? Each student can not wait to come back the following week!"

"My son has been taking violin lessons with Dongbin for almost 3 years since he started playing at age 5. Dongbin has been a great teacher, and my son enjoys learning from him. His lessons include not only violin playing, but also clapping rhythms, singing notes, and other exercises that have been effective ways of learning for my son, while keeping him engaged throughout the lesson. Dongbin recognizes my son’s strengths in playing violin, but also identifies the skills and techniques that he should focus on to become a better player and to build a strong foundation as he progresses. He also gives suggestions to help sharpen those skills while practicing at home. We have been very pleased with our experience with Dongbin as our son’s violin teacher."

"I have absolutely been delighted with my teacher Linda. At almost 50 years old, I was apprehensive about learning to play a new instrument, but she is so welcoming and encouraging. I have been taking lesson since the summer, and I look forward to seeing her every week. Even if I don't get in as much practice as I would like, She is understanding of life's commitments and never makes me feel bad. And despite my MANY questions, she takes the time to explain in detail so I can understand and incorporate the lesson in my playing. I never feel rushed during my lesson and can't wait to surprise her the next week to show her how much I've learned.."

A Beginner's Guide to Violin Bows: 4 Details to Consider

Selecting a violin bow, much like choosing a guitar, can be a very subjective process.  To the uninitiated, it's "just a violin bow."  They're all the same, right?  Wrong.  To the seasoned violinist, the perfect bow will depend on the player's technique, playing style and overall personal preference.  There are several factors that can affect the sound of the bow on the strings, including strength, shape, and age of the bow. Most beginner violins come with bows that are perfectly fine, b …
