Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching children of all age groups to acquire a solid foundation in violin playing. Whether it be pre-K beginners, or high school students getting ready for college auditions, I will communicate with the students and parents to set a number of goals to achieve.
I also welcome adult students, beginners and amateur enthusiasts alike.

In addition to gaining expertise in the techniques in violin playing, students in my studio will be given opportunities to gain comprehensive music knowledge including theory, sight singing, ear training, and any relevant music history, as the above-mentioned knowledge are indispensable elements in violin playing. Singing and clapping are essential parts of the lesson. When students are equipped with the basics, they can play anything and make the music they want.

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.

Kiran L.
I started learning violin from Dr. Dimitry 1 month ago because, unlike other teachers, I found Dr. Dimitry very honest in specifying the subtleties and nuances, especially the snaggy ones which make the violin one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Although his classes were very expensive, I chose him as he was a straightforward and experienced violinist and I never compromise on the quality of teaching. Also, being a doctoral student myself, I know what it means to earn a Ph.D. and that too in music.

Now, it has been one month, and I enjoy his classes. His analogies and examples are an apt way of understanding the techniques of playing the violin. Though Dr. Dimitry is an advanced violinist, he is very patient with absolute beginners. To sum up, I would highly recommend him to people who are very serious and determined to learn and practice the violin.
Sharon
A true professional and a great teacher! I have been taking violin lessons now for 6 months with Dr. Dimitri Olevsky, having switched to Dimitri after having had a mediocre experience with my previous teacher. Wow…what a difference. Dimitri ably blends his extensive knowledge, talent, and seriousness about his craft with a witty sense of humor. He is able to simplify the complexities of violin technique so that it is truly feels accessible. Highly recommended.
Alexander
Dr. Olevsky was immediately able to improve my playing with direct, practical advice. He is concerned with efficient practice and in making the maximum amount of progress in the time that one has. He is highly knowledgable about the audition process and the real day to day of being a professional performing violinist. I have been playing for 15+ years and find Dimitry's lessons very challenging and stimulating.

My greatest joy is sharing music, and I love to help students discover their own creative voice through their instrument! I am a versatile classical violinist and violist, fiddle player, songwriter, improviser, and cross-genre musician with over 20 years' experience playing the violin and 8 years' experience teaching violinists of all ages and abilities.

I'm currently only enrolling students online, but I will be available to teach in-person lessons in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, metro area and in Northfield, MN, after it is safe to do so.

Green makes my son’s online violin lessons engaging while still being purposeful and focused with the repertoire. My son reports feeling motivated and encouraged and his confidence and skills grow with each lesson. Thank you, Green, for all your passion and hard work!
Elizabeth K.
My kids love working with Green! She is patient and clear, and she can tailor her style to their different ages and ability levels. Plus she makes them laugh :) I highly recommend Green as a teacher!
Lance
Green is a dedicated, caring professional who quickly connected with our daughter and developed an ongoing plan to facilitate her growth and development as a musician. Green is well-prepared for each lesson, and communicates expectations clearly with encouragement, challenge, and appropriate support to our child. Our daughter says that studying violin is fun again, and possibly more than ever! We have observed a great measure of improvement just in these last 3 months of lessons with Green, and are so thankful for her musical mentorship to our daughter. You will be blessed and very grateful to enroll with Green while she still has space for students in her teaching schedule. I predict that one day soon there will be a long waiting list and many flourishing young artists benefiting from their study with a world-class talent and first-rate person.

Hi, I'm Brianna! Whether you're completely new to music or have taken lessons for years, I'd love to help you meet your goals as a violinist and musician.

I've been studying violin and composing for 18 years and specialize in classical music, but my musical background is diverse. I’ve performed as an orchestral and chamber violinist, written and performed for film scores, played for musicals, opera, and ballet, and recorded for singer/songwriters.

My teaching approach is tailored to the needs of each student and I’ve worked with violinists of all ages. I especially love working with adult students – it’s never too late to try something you’ve always wanted to learn!

Whatever you’re hoping to gain from lessons, I would love to hear about your goals and start learning together!

Brianna is amazing! I played violin when I was a kid but stopped for almost a decade before deciding to pick it up again. I looked up online and found Brianna on takelessons. I've just had my fifth violin lesson with her. She's patient, knowledgeable, and all-around a lovely person. She helped me come back to violin so fast. I enjoyed every lesson with her. Highly recommend! You'll be fortunate to have Brianna as your teacher.

I am an experienced violinist and violist and music educator, who loves working with adult beginners. I have been teaching for over 20 years, and performing professionally for over 30 years. Are you an adult who has always wanted to play the violin but was never able to? Were you told you were too old or that it was too late? Maybe you want to revisit the instrument you gave up as a youngster. I can help you get back on track. I can give you the skills and confidence you will need to accomplish your goals. It's never too late!

I am also gifted in strengthening the skills of those who have already had some experience playing violin and/or viola, but would like to improve, no matter your age. I can help young students prepare for all state and all county competitions. My lessons are laid back, personable, and enjoyable.

Kimberly is patient!! Gives clear instruction which immediately improves my playing. I am so happy with my choice of instructor!
Kent Looney
Kimberly Simkins has been a wonderful instructor for my daughter, as she works to improve her Viola playing. She is very interactive with my daughter and provides good feedback for my daughter's Viola playing.

I have been happy with this instruction and I hope others have a chance to see how personable and skilled she is.
Elyssa
Mrs. Simpkins is a great teacher and instructor and knows exactly how to make great players. I have Dyslexia and signed up for lessons after playing for a few years. Mrs. Simpkins knows exactly how to teach me and has shaped me into a great player. If you are wanting to learn to play Violin or Viola, or want to improve she is the teacher to go to. She is through, and has a great ability to shape amazing players. She got me into senior clinic and in the last concert I was placed 3rd chair mainly because of her instruction. I hope to continue lessons with her for the next year until I graduate. Although she has not been my teacher for all 9 years I have been playing, she has been my teacher for the past 4 years and I have loved having her teach me during every lesson. Having Mrs. Simpkins as your teacher, will make your playing improve significantly. I highly recommend her to everyone!

"Stephanie is extraordinary!

I never gave it any thought that it would be possible to learn such a complex instrument via Skype. To find someone as professionally trained as her is very challenging in of itself, but to have someone of her caliber teach my daughter from many miles away in the comfort of our home is truly amazing! Stephanie was very patient, observant, extremely knowledgeable and a talented teacher. It is quite a luxury to have the opportunity to work with her. I'd recommend her highly. If you are hesitant to try her online lessons I would suggest you at least give it a chance; you will be pleasantly surprised."
