Shannon has worked with me for years, as my nutrition/fitness/strength trainer and my private music instructor! I love her! She is so patient, kind and knowledgeable. She cares and only wants to help me be better at everything I do! And she is always there to help even between sessions. She's all in!

Sharon takes time to listen to you and cares about you as a person as much as a student.
She has been knowledgeable on any instrument I have done lessons on (flute, clarinet, alto sax, cello, and violin).

Shannon has been my triathlon coach and conditioning trainer for 3 years and I couldn't be more pleased. My racing times continue to improve, as I continue to aim for longer races. I just completed my first Half Ironman (70.3 miles)! I have never been injured in her care. She really knows what she's doing.

Jiuri is currently a Teaching Assistant in the University of Massachusetts, where she is responsible for all undergraduates who take violin performance as a second major. With increasing time on her hands for side efforts, Jiuri has recently found that teaching young children gives her great joy, especially dealing when with the complexities of personalities as they arise and the challenge of motivating and molding young minds. When Jiuri is not teaching or performing music, she loves traveling, seeing all the different and interesting cultures, museums and learning about the history of places. Jiuri is an avid reader.

I love sharing my passion for music through teaching. To me, music should be a conduit of self-expression—it is not merely something we do, but rather who we are. While there are many great players who have perfected the technical elements of their craft, it is the greatest musicians who find a way to speak through their art. I strongly believe that we all have the potential to speak through our music, and that the right teacher can inspire that in a student. I hope I can be that teacher for you.

I work with students on both the craft and creative side of music in an enthusiastic and nurturing environment. This approach is aimed at awakening a student's drive to explore their own musical path both inside and outside the lesson. Within a lesson, we will work on (1) instrumental technique and basic music theory, very important aspects to us as players, and (2) improvisation/composition and having creative musical discussions, which are invaluable to us as creatives. From my experience,

Private Violin Teacher

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I'm an NYC-based violinist with over 15 years of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on the spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique, students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson time is also devoted to preparing students for ...

About Lauren

In addition to my teaching, I maintain an international career as a performer. I've performed at festivals such as Venice Biennale, Acht Brücken, Newport Jazz, Beijing Modern Music Festival, and Lincoln Center. I've worked with artists and composers such as Ambrose Akinmusire, Richard Carrick, C

Lauren has been an amazing teacher and mentor. Her teaching technique and talent has made a huge difference in my teenage daughter's musical journey.

Lauren is a cheerful and patient instructor. She has helped our daughter elevate her skill and proficiency with the violin, and encouraged her to expand her style and technique. Lauren is always punctual, and she seems willing to spend a few extra minutes if necessary at the end of each lesson. She's also flexible with her scheduling. If we have a conflict, she does her best to work around it. Highly recommended.

I have been teaching for over 12 years. The combination of learning technique, music and having fun all at the same time is priceless! No matter what age you are or your ability (beginning, intermediate or advanced), there are no boundaries when it comes to music!

About Wolfgang

Wolfgang was born in Vienna, Austria and raised in the United States. He began his violin studies at age 7. Wolfgang studied with Zona Miller- Pueblo Symphony Orchestra from 1969-1977 and Jessi Ceci- concertmaster of the Denver Symphony Orchestra from 1977-1979. Majoring in violin performance, he

Christopher
My son has been a student of Wolfgang’s for almost three years now, and in our opinion he is just the best! We’re so grateful to have found him. Not only is he an expert musician, he’s also an expert teacher. It’s not easy to find that combination!

Wolfgang is patient, kind, and funny. He’s always upbeat, and always always gentle and encouraging. At the same time, he has a knack for challenging his students and making them want to work hard for him. He has a deep knowledge of music, and once you progress beyond the beginner level he can really help you with theory, technique, and an endless supply of useful tips about how to get the most out of practice, how to tackle a challenging piece, and how to approach a performance. He has an enthusiasm for his subject that is infectious. Our son has really made amazing progress under Wolfgang’s guidance.

We’ve always found Wolfgang to be super flexible and easygoing on the admin side. We never felt the kind of sales pressure from him that you sometimes get with music schools and teachers. He accommodates our scheduling needs with no pressure and no guilt, and always communicates promptly whenever there might be something on his end that would affect a lesson. In short he’s a real pro, the total package, and you won’t regret hiring him as a teacher.
Erik
I'm extremely happy to have found Wolfgang Track as a violin teacher. Unlike previous teachers I have had, he is extremely patient and easy-going. He delivers instruction and advice very well, making lessons comfortable and engaging.

I am an adult student with a full-time job. Needless to say, I need a teacher that can maintain a flexible schedule and understand my time limits. Wolfgang does both, but never makes me feel like I am "falling behind" or "losing momentum". He is very good at making sure that I feel like I am continuously progressing, which continues to keep me focused.

I can't recommend his services enough. Any student would do well with Wolfgang as an instructor.
Cynthia
My son worked with Wolfgang for close to six years. We absolutely lived Jim. Patient and fun for all ages.

My belief is that teacher's goal is to help a student to reveal and develop his/her personality through the music, so the lessons are adjusted for each student's needs individually. At the same time, the basis is a professional approach with detailed instructions, from posture, technique skills, and proper practicing strategies to phrasing and music stylistic features.
I teach classical violin and work with students of all ages/ levels.

About Tatiana

I am a professional violinist and member of several orchestras in Michigan. I studied at St. Petersburg Conservatory and also have a Doctorate degree in violin performance from Michigan State University. My diverse background allows me to combine best features of Russian and American string schools.

Tatiana is an excellent instructor and I am a 68 yr old violin hobbyist who is trying to learn classical music and folk music to eventually become a part time teacher myself. She is very patient and pleasant and I am a former teacher myself in grades 5 - 9. I believe she would be good for any age(s) ! She is great with technique and knowing what the student wants to accomplish and is interested in with their musical interests She is just a very pleasant person to know and get guidance musically from! I recommend her highly!
