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 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. However, I am currently living in Denver, Colorado. For the past two seasons, I have primarily served as the assistant principal violist of the Pacific Symphony, while enjoying a flourishing freelance career

First lesson, while a bit glitchy with the lessons thing, the instructor adjusted while we figure out next time. My son really liked working with Josh, and is looking forward to more.

Join me to achieve:

• a solid technical and musical foundation for beginners
• improved technique and increased musical expressiveness for intermediate & advanced players
• support developing strong rhythm and sight-reading skills
• a sense of community with other students and parents during this time of isolation
• confidence and joy in performing

I use a combination of Suzuki approaches, improvisation, Dalcroze-inspired eurythmics, and somatic movement awareness (inspired by Feldenkrais and Alexander Technique) to simultaneously develop fluent musicality, joy in making music, a solid instrumental technique, and musicianship (including reading and theory). A former sufferer of tendonitis, she has a particular interest in addressing and preventing performance injuries, in both beginning and experienced players.

I’ve had the great pleasure of both studying with and watching Sylvia teach others for several years. She’s kind, patient, and always calm, even through my last-minute

Private Violin Teacher

I have 19 years of experience playing the violin, and have cherished every moment. Playing music is one of the most powerful and emotional experience an individual can have, and my goal is to help you along your musical journey wherever it may take you. I have taught ages 7-70, and am passionate about a variety of genres though my core training was in classical. I have worked with students in all stages of development, whether picking up the instrument for the first time or preparing for college auditions or international competitions.

Lessons will always be tailored with YOUR goals in mind, and I strive to make sure you come away from every lesson feeling excited and musically and intellectually stimulated.

I spent a number of my formative years studying violin remotely, long before the pandemic brought students to online platforms. I believe that online learning is just as good as traditional in-person instruction, without rigid schedules or geographic barriers.

Looking forward

About Kiarra

I have a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and a Master of Music in Violin Performance from McGill University. I have soloed with numerous orchestras, such as the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Arlington, Garland Symphony, Charleston Symphony Orc

"As an adult student, Nicholas is a fantastic instructor. He corrects technique rather than focusing on small mistakes (like a flubbed note). He's very easy to work with and challenges me each lesson so that I am never bored and never feel like I am wasting time working on perfecting a two note exercise because he pushes me to play further and further in the practice book. Absolutely the best experience for an adult student (any student, really)."

"Keiko is that rare combination--an accomplished violinist AND a great teacher. Hard to come by... Her passion for music is contagious and, for her students, inspiring. Keiko taught my husband and my daughter. Her approach was different for each and tailored to challenge but never pressure them. Her engaging style and good sense of humor made lessons fly by, and when it came time to practice, motivated them. As a person, she's wonderful too. As a teacher, she's a gift."

I love the way Zeynep engages with my daughter and brings out the best in her."
