About Calvin
Hello and welcome to my profile here on takelessons.com thanks for stopping by! My name is Calvin and I’ve been teaching students of all ages for more than 16 years now.
I started my personal music journey at 4 years old first learning piano and guitar and multiple other instruments from there. My father was my first music instructor which grounded me in the foundation and theory of music while at the same time knowing that ear training and learning how to play with other musicians was just as important. From there I had the privilege of learning jazz, blues, and many other styles from the late Hal Stesch at UNLV School of Music who played piano and organ for many great artists including Elvis, The Platters, Frank Sinatra, and many more. Currently my wife and lead Praise and worship 3 to 4 times weekly a two different church campuses an
d also perform every Saturday at a Branson style show in Liberty, Texas.
My approach to teaching music is to customize lessons to the student’s interests while still maintaining the essentials and foundations including music theory, scales, and reading music. I like to incorporate particular songs and genres of music that the student likes by providing customized tracks with their particular instrument taken out so that feel a sense of accomplishment and get the practice of playing along with other musicians which benefits in the ear training process. I look forward to meeting and "jamming" with you soon!

It is a real challenge to find a right violin instructor for a beginner. My son went through few of them and I can see the difference. Nikita gives all the nutrients and sunlight to any tiny seed to grow. His violin teachers' talent can bet only his violinist' talent. He is very flexible and always ready in time. You can't even think of the better one.

I've recently returned to playing violin after a long break, and now taking online lessons with Nikita. He is super helpful, has already showed me a lot of efficient techniques which really speed up my re-gaining process. Nikita is very responsible, always comes up with ideas how to work on my tone, intonation, bowing specific to my needs. He is also a fantastic violinist, which is always the best inspiration for students!

At 60 plus I'm pretty set in my ways. But after 40 some years of not playing a violin I purchased a new one and found Nikita. He has worked with me trying to correct bad habits. Teaching proper handling, finger placement, notes, bow hold and care. Nikita works with children and the ELDERLY and everyone in between. His patience and passion for music is great. I highly recommend this person. He is not only a highly trained and gifted musician with many years of experience but also an excellent teacher. I value his skills and his friendship.

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 23 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

**Studio Equipment**
violins, viola, mandolin, recording equipment

About Elias
At 5 years old I was struck by the incredible beauty of Vivaldi's music, and ever since I've been playing violin. I hold a BA from Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences and attended the Baroque Performance Institute in 2005 and 2006. Apart from teaching, as a professional musician performing in Southern California I am well versed both in classical violin and various fiddle styles ranging from bluegrass, Celtic and old-time to rock, pop and blues. I also play viola and mandolin and write music.

Alexandria, VA
View Full Profile

Experienced teacher of 10 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate violin student! All ages and disabilities are welcome to take lessons. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I can teach all types of different genres, help students prepare for college auditions, and help with competitions and youth orchestra auditions. Let's get started!

About Tia
I started the violin when I was 8 years old at my hometown elementary school. I grew up in a very artsy town, which provided me the opportunities to learn music from around the world. These are a few reason why I love to collaborate with other musicians, create youtube videos, play different genres and mixes of various genres, writing my own pieces, traveling, and teaching others the love of music.

As I live in the Washington D.C. Metro area, scheduling/travel is flexible for me and easy to coordinate around my students' schedules. If there is a preferred lesson for your child not listed as "available" please feel free to inquire directly - we will find a time that works!

Violin students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every student learns uniquely; I teach students mindfulness and correct instrument techniques,
and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach beginner piano students of all different ages. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

My passion is music and I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style when learning an instrument. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I have extensive teaching experience ranging from beginning learners as young as 3 years old, to the older adult student learning for the first time, or bringing the violin or viola back into their lives. Prior teaching positions also include collegiate level instruction at Drake University (Iowa), Grinnell College (Iowa), and Richland College (Texas) as well as instruction within the Drake University Community School of Music, and after-school group classes at Montessori schools. I enjoy teaching students at all levels, competitive, or non-competitive. I incorporate Suzuki Method principles and repertoire into my teaching, but I also have experience with a range of traditional methods that suit students of different needs and goals. I am always interested in serving the student first and in creating an open dialogue with students and parents on what I believe their technical and musical needs are in order to meet our goals together as student and teacher.

Fort Collins, CO

I'm a full-time professional musician who lives and works out of Fort Collins, Colorado. I was classically trained on violin through the Suzuki Method from age 8 to 18, and I've since been touring the country and playing gigs in the bluegrass "fiddle" style with my band, Head for the Hills.

Whether trying to learn classical violin techniques or old-time fiddle tunes, my students receive a well-rounded education that focuses on their individual strengths and interests without glossing over fundamentals and basic core techniques. If you're brand new to the instrument or if you're looking to expand your existing skill set, I'd love to help you reach your goals!

Students must be at least 7 years of age, self-motivated, and serious about learning the violin.

About Joseph
I am a touring musician who has traveled the country and world with my bluegrass band, Head for the Hills, for the last 15 years. I graduated from the University of Colorado, Denver in 2010 with a bachelors degree in Music and Entertainment Industry Studies, with a focus in music business.

I now live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my partner, Allie, and our two rescue chihuahuas. I'm always thrilled to teach what I've learned and figured out over my years of touring on students of all ages and skill levels.

I teach out of the Music District here in Fort Collins, a state-of-the-art, beautiful space located in the heart of downtown. I'm most versed in bluegrass and classical styles, but I'm open to exploring any genre a student has interest in, including amplified and electric violin styles.
