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.

Wonderful teacher! I'm an adult student and his instructions are clear and easy to understand.

Private 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;)

Mary is great! Very patient with a nervous and fumbling beginner. She teaches concepts in a way that is very easy for me to understand. Able to give very direct and specific feedback in the moment.
Mitchell
As an adult with lots of piano experience but limited violin experience, Mary was able from the very first lesson to quickly determine my skill level and tailor instruction appropriately. I am looking forward to more lessons and am confident that under her guidance and with diligent practice, I will steadily improve.

Within only the first few lessons, I have already learned so much! Mary exceeded any expectations I had. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and has wonderful material suggestions.

I have been teaching classical violin for over 6 years, and have found the Suzuki method to be quite reliable. This method uses listening/ear training, repetition, and encouragement to help students develop technique while cultivating an extensive repertoire of music. I supplement my Suzuki lessons with basic theory, note reading, and an emphasis on practice techniques and artistry, and encourage experienced students to explore classical and traditional repertoire outside of the Suzuki method.

About Miriam-Rose

Hello! My name is Miriam-Rose, and I have been teaching violin/fiddle to students of all levels and ages for over ten years. I was trained classically in the Suzuki method from a very young age, and also have a significant background in traditional music, specifically Scottish fiddle. During my

Mariam-Rose is a wonderful instructor.
Teagen
She's very knowledgeable. She used the time to really analyze and work with my daughters ability. Afterwards she gave great advice, the pros and cons on what she needs to work on.
Eric
Very good at explaining concepts in a second, or sometimes third, way so that her student can make an inner connection. I also admire the way she organizes her lessons so we refresh and enhance the previous session and then move on to new technique. Appreciate the professional way she communicates as necessary outside class, too.

Rebecca teaches with the Suzuki method. She accommodates my previous experience with music, filling in some gaps and skipping over what I know. She also accommodates other needs: I take a lot of notes, slowly, and she waits while I finish.

In person lessons are the dream, but Rebecca works around the limitations of the internet beautifully. Her instructions are sometimes a direct how-to, other times about exploring by myself as I practice.

Finally, it's clear she loves the instrument. Now viola lessons and practice are the highlight of my day!

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

She noticed if your hand and posture is in the correct position and if you are playing the right or wrong note. She goes over each piece you are playing bar by bar and she also plays it before she ask you to play. I am more impressed with her than when I went to a school to take lessons."
