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.

Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive

After taking lessons with Isabelle, my son feels more comfortable with violin. She is delightful and kind, yet meticulous in her teaching. With her guidance, Justin finds his orchestra sessions much more enjoyable. I highly recommend her.
Sonia
After several weeks of lessons, my son, who is a beginner, has learned so much and can actually play melodies. Isabelle has been excellent at guiding him through proper technique and establishing a good foundation. I also appreciate her positive attitude which encourages my son want to practice and improve.

Isabelle quickly diagnosed my problem areas.  She knew exactly which exercises would solve which problems.  Very clear and focused teacher.

Very good instructor. She has the right temprament for me being an older student.
Tracey L.
She was very thorough..plus her style of teaching will definitely benefit me in the long run!!
Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

"At 40, violin is the first instrument I have ever learned, having taking lessons for seven months now with Autumn. Her clear instruction provides phenomenal motivation to intensely practice, and excel. I am humbled by her teaching of music theory in her lessons as well. Our orchestra group Autumn established has amazing synergy. As an engineer by trade, I have a deeper feeling of resonance and nature, through violin, thanks to Autumn."

She isn't afraid to challenge you and never puts limitations on you. Her lessons are always fun and you can rest assured that you will learn the correct technique and sound. She never gives up on you and never shows any frustration! I couldn't have asked for a better or more outstanding teacher! Thank you! :)"

"Mr. Nader is an excellent instructor who always puts his students first. He customizes his lessons in accordance to each individual and patiently works with them so that they may achieve their optimum potential.

More than just a passive teacher of the violin, Mr. Nader dedicates his time and energy as a full time instructor of violin, cello, and music theory. Furthermore, Mr. Nader exhibits a level of knowledge, intellect, understanding, and culture rarely seen in the world today. When one walks into his music room, one will be struck with awe at not only the amount of books in Mr. Nader's library collection, but also the wide variety of subjects ranging from Music, Music History, Biographies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many more. However, do not think that these books are just for display. Quite the contrary, one short conversation with Mr. Nader will show that he is well versed in all these subjects; a modern incarnation of the Renaissance polymath. Building off of his broad knowledge base, Mr. Nader not only teaches one how to play an instrument, he also teaches one how to cultivate oneself in Music and the culture from which it originates.

With a passion for Music and a yearn to pass on higher culture to the avid learner, Mr. Nader is the best instructor for all those who wish to learn Music along with its connection to the history, society, and culture from which it springs."

What Are the Different Violin Sizes: Prepping for Your First Lesson

If you, or your child has decided to take up the violin, there are many things to consider. For example, should you buy or rent the violin? And, is a half size violin or a full size violin right for you? In fact, determining the correct size violin for you or your child is one of the first things to do when you get ready for your initial violin lessons. The violin actually comes in 8 different sizes ranging from 1/16 to a full size which is 4/4.  As a child, I started to play the violin as …
