About Ellen

As Abbe' Dimnet once said, "Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves." I aim to teach my students how to sing through kinesthesia. This allows them to internalize what they are doing in the studio so they can practice it at home and be more successful. P

Lara H.
Ellen is excellent! She has listened to our daughter and helped her to learn several songs on the violin which is what she wanted. She is actually practicing almost daily! Ellen plays alongside her so she can get a feel for the notes and how they sound. I like the way she teaches. She encourages and praises our daughter all the time.

Online Violin Teacher

I have been teaching violin lessons for about ten years, both as a private teacher and in public schools. I have a bachelor's degree in violin performance from Eastern Washington University and spent a year working as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Memphis, where I studied violin performance, Suzuki Pedagogy, and early music. I have also done additional studies at the Walla Walla Suzuki Institute.

I use the Suzuki approach for the core of my curriculum but work with each student individually to understand and shape their unique goals, using supplemental materials accordingly. I am a firm believer that any person who wants to play the violin can, with the guidance of a good teacher, the right environment, and a solid plan, achieve any goal they set out to pursue. If you have been wanting to begin, or continue, your musical journey I encourage you to take hold of the moment and get started today!

About Brenden

In addition to teaching music, I perform regularly with a number of orchestras, musical theater companies, and chamber ensembles across the Inland Northwest.

Online Violin Teacher

Hi! I'm Michael Shingo Crawford and I am a violinist, pianist, and composer.

In my teaching, I emphasize efficient, goal-oriented practice, and provide a strong technical foundation while always keeping musicality and expression in mind. I encourage my students to develop problem-solving skills that will ultimately allow them to create their own interpretations about a piece of music. I believe that each student has a different learning style and, with this knowledge, I design a program of study specifically for them.

Learning music is all about tackling technical or musical problems in many different ways until we find an approach that works for you. As multi-instrumentalist who also writes music, I can offer many different perspectives on a single issue and draw from a wide range of knowledge that serves me in my daily creative pursuits. ~

About Michael

Hello I'm Michael! I am a violinist and composer with a diverse skill set and 17 years of experience. I learn and grow as I pass on my knowledge and constantly find ways to better serve my students and help them achieve their goals.

I have been a student of Michael’s for approximately 7 months. My only previous experience with violin had been one year in elementary school band class and 8 months with a private teacher. When my private teacher’s lesson schedule changed, I was introduced to Michael and was greatly impressed by his skill level and teaching style. I have learned so much more than I had expected in each lesson, like how to self-tune, use a metronome, shift, and various other techniques. Michael constantly offers feedback on how I can execute techniques better, and I feel that this helps me to learn more effectively. He is always challenging me by giving me harder pieces and scales. I have even been told by my high school orchestra conductor that I have improved so much and she is constantly surprised by how fast I am learning. I highly recommend having Michael as a teacher for anyone looking to learn how to play the violin.
Akshay R
Michael is very talented and he is a great instructor. He explains the techniques really well. Very professional and supportive. I highly recommend him!
Tanush
Micheal is a fantastic teacher that manages to solve every question and problem I have about my instrument. His teaching technique breaks down complex things into easy-to-understand lessons that help give me and his other students great comprehension of the topics that we need to know to become better musicians. I sincerely cannot recommend him enough to beginning and intermediate musicians.

Online Violin Teacher

I began playing violin as a young child, and progressed to several hours a day during my teenage years. I taught throughout college, both as a violin instructor and as a private instructor.

My teaching programs vary according to the level of the student, and the goal he or she has set for him/herself, be it as a support to a school educational program or a personal love for music and/or the violin that seeks to develop itself into a practice.

Gabrielle is a fantastic teacher. She not only is a native French speaker she is also a grammar guru! She has helped me finally understand my verb conjugations (probably because she teaches young children and can reduce the information to the simplest terms - thanks Gabrielle). She’s also patient and lovely and wonderful to work with. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier.
Makenna F.
My daughter came out of her first lesson all smiles! She said she learned more in 1 lesson then she did in months in her last French class.

"Anna is an awesome instructor for my 12 year old daughter who is a beginner. Each lesson my daughter learns something new and progresses on the violin. Anna does a great job of teaching the basic techniques and not letting my daughter develop bad habits. Anna gives clear feedback: she praises what was done well and corrects what needs improvement. Anna encourages my daughter to excellence while making the lessons fun. My daughter loves violin lessons with Anna and looks forward to each lesson."
