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.

Although I mainly sing now, I was originally a violinist and played all through college in professional orchestras, quartets and even as a soloist.

As a professional Music Educator, I have run String Programs in various International Schools among many other instrumental ensembles. I've conducted student orchestras & built many programs from scratch. Please see the links in my profile of the beginner orchestras as well as my playing!

Although I do not play professionally anymore, I still play very well, and am a perfect teacher for a beginner and intermediate student. I know how to get students started quickly and with confidence. Choose me to jump start yourself or your child.

I think my biggest strength as a strings teacher is helping this tedious time as a beginning violinist be fun and useful. My students really enjoy their lessons. I also have a lot of experience online and anticipate all of the normal issues (tuning, instrument care, etc;)

We had a nice discussion about singing and set a goal to start practice. Looking forward to the next lesson.
Lynn Woodard
Mary is an extremely talented vocalist and a very gifted teacher. I came in with no training whatsoever and was comfortable with her immediately. She is constantly challenging me to stretch beyond my comfort zone, which has made a huge difference in my vocal range and my confidence. She is very knowledgable about the mechanics of singing and searches for just the right analogies for my untrained brain to get my "singing parts" into the correct position to the produce the best sound. She is also patient and encouraging. She really is amazing and I couldn't be happier with my lessons and progress. Highly recommend Mary!
Marsia
As an inexperienced singer, Mary is helping me find my voice, and so far, I love it! She is very clear and concise when it comes to teaching, and there is a level of expectation when it comes to practicing, which I love, as it holds me accountable for my progress.

Dan is a fantastic teacher! I studied with him when I was younger and returned after 13 years or so. He is very flexible and will tailor the lesson to your individual needs. Dan is also very perceptive and thorough in his approach, which really helps fine tune your playing. Highly recommend!

Dan puts a big emphasis on technique and it will likely make for a better player in the long run. Lessons have lots of examples and he checks for understanding frequently.

I have been teaching violin since 1998. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

Online Violin Teacher

As a violin teacher, I love helping my students achieve their goals!
I believe not only the results matter, but also the journey. I focus my lessons on helping the student learn and have a deeper understanding of music theory, harmony, rhythm, technique, and how all those apply to the violin. I specialize in classical music and I use methods such as Suzuki, Essential Elements, and many others to help you become a better violinist. The lessons take place in a relaxed and fun setting :)

About Tania

I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years but my love for teaching started about 10 years ago! I became fascinated with teaching as not only I have learned so much about myself as a musician and person but most importantly I have learned how to help my students become better musicians.

Erin
Tania has been so amazing. We have only had one in home session before the COVID-19 restrictions came about. She has basically had to teach both myself and my daughter how to tune and play the violin. Her patience and creativity have been so helpful. My daughter is 6, and her attention span is not the greatest. I really appreciate Tania's patience and ability to keep her focused and engaged.
Stefan
I am an adult learner, I started with a different instructor but I was frustrated with a number of things. I contacted Tania with my frustrations and then started lessons. She has been a joy to work with. Her first question to me was what my goals were. I really appreciated this, because I am an adult who has carved out 30-60 minutes each day to practice. So I definitely have goals. The overall goal of improving is nicely balanced with pieces and styles that I find interesting and enjoyable. My previous teacher was not very attentive to body mechanics and so I was hitting a wall both in terms of ability and comfort. I mentioned to him my back was hurting and he thought I was making conversation rather than asking for help. I didn't even need to tell Tania my back was hurting after practicing, because she starting suggesting tweaks to my mechanics after watching me play for just a few minutes. Playing immediately became more comfortable and enjoyable. Tania understands that playing violin is parts listening, mechanics, theory and playing. When I'm having trouble with one we will discuss parts of the others and a first it didn't seem related then suddenly I see a convection between the different parts and the connection makes my playing better. I would absolutely recommend Tania. She has a deep understanding of the topic and makes learning violin funner and easier. Scheduling has always been easy.
Andrew
Tania has been a great teacher for my son. He started learning violin with the Suzuki method and studied with a Suzuki teacher for about four years before stopping lessons. He became interested in violin again in middle school and decided he wanted to take private lessons while in 7th grade. Tania had no trouble getting him back on track, picking up with some Book 2 pieces and moving on to Book 3. She has helped him with his bowing, vibrato and shifting, and his sound has really improved. She also has helped him learn to read better and has introduced some basic music theory into lessons. My son really likes his lessons, and feels that he is learning what he needs. Overall, I like her approach, which I think works very well for this level. She is an excellent musician, and this comes through in her teaching.

"Mark is a talented musician and worked very well with my son to help improve and fine tune his viola performance just before he heads off to college. Emphasis was placed on technique and musicality. A great experience ! At one point Marked picked up his electric violin and played a beautiful duet with my son that was amazing!"
