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.

I have been teaching violin for seven years. Though I am classically trained, my interest in music goes far beyond classical music. I am constantly listening to various genres of music and consider myself a forever learner, loving everything in music from Prokofiev to the Flaming Lips. It is my job to help guide my students through their musical journeys, whether that is helping them get into their regional orchestra or teaching them that one song they've always wanted to learn. I teach out of the Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books. Though my lessons are fun and relaxed I will always give my students that extra push when needed. My goal is to help each student reach their personal success and to instill a love for playing music.

Tools for lessons:

Music Stand
Rosin
Shoulder rest or sponge
Previous method books (if you are not a first time learner)
Metronome
Pencil

Catherine is a kind, friendly and very patient while teaching me violin lessons. She walked me through Musical Grammar and taught me the details of "Violin instrument". She makes the lessons fun and challenging too which helps us to go to the next level of learning. She gets into the details as to how I'm playing and in the end its just that she wants me to get it right . She has always encouraged me and motivated me to learn. I didn;t know the "ABC's of music but she has taught me alot till date. I'm glad I found her as my music teacher.

Catherine is patient, conscientious, caring and a very experienced violin teacher. My daughter has progressed not just in violin skills but also in discipline, resilience and confidence in other skills.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs by reading and by ear and as time goes on you'll be able to play more complex repertoire. I specialize in classical, style but I can teach you different kinds of styles, typically use the Suzuki repertoire but I use a variety of method and books. I have the following tools available for your lessons: violin, computer program, sound system, Tuner and Metronome .

My gifted son needs challenging and stimulating activities to help him balance all of his feelings. I was extremely hesitant with signing him up because he is only 4. However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one.

When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.
Marlee M.
My Daughter had her 1st lesson and loved it! Landon was kind patient with just enough silliness for my 6yr old to feel completely comfortable. I was shocked and excited to hear her actually play. When we left she said she couldn’t wait to go back and asked if Landon could be her teacher forever.

Online Violin Teacher

Annabel is a classicly trained violinist who gradually became a musician as she learned what it meant to be one. We all have a multitude of senses that can be tuned to become a musician: a channel for our chosen instrument. Musicians aim to cultivate talent in music as a gift to give oneself and others. They feel the freedom-- sufficient technical facility and intuitive artistry-- to express whatever voice speaks in each moment. Annabel has relearned as an experienced violinist that we do well to view playing from a biodynamic perspective. That means extending the concept of instrument beyond the violin to the body-mind. Giving attention to subtle movements and holding patterns can make hours of practice unnecessary. This is part of a joyful, freeing approach wherein more of practice becomes play as challenges become gateways to greater fluency. Annabel believes that in this way, violinists can enjoy playing to their fullest capacity at any level.
While students are encouraged to ...

Annabel is a lifelong violinist. She began with the Suzuki Method and then went on to train in the classics as well as fiddling, jazz, and improvisation. During the time when she was active in the music scenes of Troy and Ann Arbor, Michigan, she became a skilled and versatile player. Since then

"Having worked with Nikita and knowing him personally, I hold him in very high regards. Not only Nikita is an outstanding performer and musician, but he also is a very strong teacher, who holds high level of professionalism. Nikita finds individual approach to each one of his students, helps them find passion for music within themselves and express it in their performance, all of which are key pedagogical qualities. Having music as an essence of his life, Nikita naturally sparks love for music in other people. Nikita gave me many helpful tips on how to become a better performer, as well as how to have the confidence to be one. But above all, Nikita has a very bright personality, a very lighthearted sense of humor and a natural ability drive people towards him. Nikita is a very inspiring young man."

"Very clear and passionate about the instruction he teaches! Lorenzo has won many musical competitions and is not only an exceptional violinist but also a great teacher. Taking lessons from Lorenzo has helped me be able to get in Brevards music festival program in 2019 and also make it to the semifinals in their solo competition. I would also like to add that with Lorenzo’s help I also was able make it to the finals at my universities solo competition later that year. Lorenzo is great at teaching bow technique and left hand finger technique but he is also amazing at teaching the heart and soul of the music!"
