Violin Lessons in Washington DC

By Layla Hashemi, Violin Teacher in Washington DC

Are you thinking about taking violin lessons in Washington DC? The DC metro area is one of the world’s most bustling metropolitan regions for the orchestral arts. Whether you’re looking to catch an inspiring event or gain some stage time as a performer, the area is home to a plethora of resources for violin players of all ages and styles.

Listening to good music makes a musician better just like reading good content makes a better writer. Take advantage of the fact that Washington DC has a rich history in the orchestral arts. Below are various venues where students can go to get inspired:

  1. National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center: If you’re looking for one of the finest orchestra experiences available, look no further than the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO). Founded in 1931 and an affiliate company of the Kennedy Center since 1986, the Orchestra has maintained its commitment to artistic excellence and music education. The NSO has 96 musicians and two librarians, presenting a year-long season of approximately 150 concerts.

  2. Alden Theater in McLean: Looking for something a bit more low-key? The intimate atmosphere of the Alden Theater, located just outside the Washington DC area, hosts regular events and performances. The venue even offers educational programs for audiences of all ages. The venue’s motto, “Small stage. Big talent,” says it all.

  3. Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic: Are you on a budget? All performances at the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic are $20 (children 18 and under get in for free). The Association also offers a free Summer Chamber Music Series with performances each Sunday in Old Town Alexandria at The Lyceum during the months of July and August. In addition to the Philharmonic, the center is also home to the Youth Orchestra (WMYO) and the Concert Orchestra (WMCO). Established in 1971, the WMYO gives local violinists and string players the opportunity to audition and become part of one of the region’s largest youth orchestras.

  4. United States Army Navy Band: All of their performances are free and open to the public, and they even host 1-3 day workshops throughout the season. Combining immaculate technique with what always proves to be a wonderful program of works, this orchestra is a must-see for anyone in the DC metro area.

  5. Friday Morning Music Club: The Friday Morning Music Club, Inc., has been promoting classical music in the Washington area for over 125 years. FMMC’s public concerts—now held throughout the week—provide members with a host of outlets for their talents as well as delighting audiences in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. All concerts are free and performed as a public service. The Club also fosters the development of local talent through competitions for local students and recitals by student members.

  6. Reston Community Orchestra: Like many local organizations, the Reston Community Orchestra holds seasonal concerts held at the community center in Reston, Virginia. Not near Reston? Check out your local listings for schools, churches, and community centers that might hold regular free events that will help keep you in tune with your intonation!

Don’t delay taking violin lessons in Washington DC any longer. The city has an array of resources that can help keep you inspired and motivated.

I teach from the earliest beginner through adult. My violin students are currently performing for different schools and ensembles. When students are performing with orchestras, much time is spent working on that music as well as their regular music.

About Diane
I have a degree and certification in violin and piano from the Boston Conservatory as well as a Master's Degree from the University of Maryland. I have had additional training and certification as a Suzuki teacher from The Suzuki Teacher Training Institute. I am a member of SAGWA-Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area as well as SAA-Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have played all around the world including the Vatican, White House, Paris, Russia, England and Wales as well as in Concert Halls such as Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center. I have taken students with me to perform as well in these countries and also every major concert hall in the Washington, D.C. area. I give my students opportunities to perform whenever there is an opportunity. In addition I work with students to earn music scholarships to private school
s and colleges. I am also a judge in the Young Artist Award in Maryland. In addition, I have received two White House awards for my performances at the White House, I am also a member of Psi Chi International Honor Society.

Music has been an important part of my life. It represents so much that is good in life and I do my best to communicate this to my students. I am training my students not just to be musicians but to love music for life.

*** Lesson Details ***
I treat each student as an individual since everyone is different. For some I might use a traditional approach, some just the Suzuki approach and others a combination of techniques. Whatever produces the best results. My goal is not to make strictly classical musicians but to train students to love music and carry this love throughout life. My repertoire consists of everything including traditional, Suzuki, Disney, Showtunes, etc. I have taken students to perform little concerts at the White House, schools, hospitals and concert halls to get the real feel of performing. I view lessons as a three way relationship between myself, the student and the parent so that the parent is not left out. I even have a small group called Musical Magic which incorporates magic into music. I feel I am laid back but am able to accomplish my goal through positive reinforcement. Every child or student wants to feel good about his/her playing. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. If you want online lessons, please contact me through Take Lessons since I have additional availability to teach online. In the past six months my students have performed for the National Humane Society at their animal ball, a multi teacher recital on a local stage, and just two weeks ago seven of them performed at Strathmore. This summer I have two more concerts planned. Coming up will be an all instrument graduation with several other teachers where students receive medals for their performances. No student is required to perform but if they want to the opportunity is there. All students are required to have an instrument prior to beginning lessons. If students need to rent a violin, I will provide you with the name of a violin dealer that both rents and sells string instruments. Piano students must have a piano or keyboard.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach at home and have both a grand piano and electric keyboard in addition to a harp and violin.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When my students have to travel to perform, I make sure they have everything they need.

*** Specialties ***
Traditional and Suzuki approaches for both violin and piano. I also teach children with learning disabilities.and have extensive summer programs to help students with auditions for youth orchestras and school orchestras.

Ms. Diane is the most amazing instructor. She has been successfully teaching my daughter both violin and piano online for two years now. Ms. Diane is knowledgeable, reliable, flexible and one of the kindest music instructors our family has had the good fortune and pleasure to learn from. We are also lucky to only live about 40 minutes away, so we also get to see Ms. Diane for an in home lesson on occasion. Our daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson with Ms. Diane and plans to continue learning from Ms. Diane for many years to come. If you are looking for a music instructor with such qualities, Ms. Diane is truly worth your time and consideration for both online and in home instruction. If I could give her more than 5 stars I certainly would. Thank you Ms. Diane for everything!!

I've been teaching String Instruments like Guitar and Violin for Beginners and Intermediate level for many years.
In Teaching Violin for my beginner students, we usually review the basics of how to play the violin including how to hold the violin, violin tuning, violin fingering , violin bowing and violin care. My students also do warm-up to strengthen and improve their violin playing with violin scales, violin etudes, and violin exercises.
For my Intermediate violin students, we refresh our memory of the fundamentals of music theory such as how to read violin music, rhythm and key signatures.

I've taught ages 3 to 35, beginner to undergraduate collegiate level. I can develop your left hand, bow technique, and musicality to the point that you will sound better when you leave a lesson than when you arrive every single time. I will inspire a love for the instrument that will carry through the week with you.

About Gabrielle

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Louisville. I believe in using positive feedback to develop a student's passion for playing music.

I would have described how 'passionate' Gabbi is about violin but unfortunately never had that opportunity. I had scheduled the class 10 days in advance and on the day of the class Gabbi decided to shoot an email couple hours before saying she can't make it.
A dollar is minute is a very decent compensation which I don't make as an engineer with 7 years of college education. But unfortunately that didn't inspire enough professionalism in Gabbi. Maybe she reserves her professionalism for few people and not for everyone.

Gabby is a great violin teacher. She customizes her lessons to your needs, and she encourages and gives great pointers throughout the lesson. My daughter leaves her lessons with so much more knowledge and hints - than when she came with to the lesson. I have seen her improve greatly in her playing in just a few lessons.

I've been teaching violin for 14 years and my students have gone on to win top prizes at the Solo & Ensemble Festival, featured soloists, and become music majors! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few songs and read music, and as time goes on you'll be able to develop a beautiful tone! I typically use the Suzuki books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: audio recordings, and an extensive music library. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Annie
Hi, there! My name is Annie M and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2005 and have loved helping my students grow as musicians, grow as people, and enjoy their instrument!

Most important of all, she always remind my son the right habit of the way to play violin at the beginning which I think is very important for beginners! She has a lot of patience and encouraged my son a lot! I highly recommend Annie for both young kids and adult students.

OMG my excitement is through the roof after my first lesson with Humberto! I can't even get my feet to touch the ground. I am an adult, basically starting from scratch picking up my violin for the first time in 20+ years having played for a year as a kid. I was so nervous, and feel silly starting at such an elementary level, and Humberto's instruction was not only expert, but his enthusiasm was completely genuine. He was authentically supportive every step of the way and thrilled at every moment of progress. His infectious smile made me feel so safe being a novice starting over and so excited for my next lesson...which he's not teaching me in Spanish since he learned I need to practice my dusty Spanish skills as well! Couldn't recommend him highly enough, love love love Humberto and can't wait til next week's lesson!

I'm so pleased that we found Humberto to be my daughter's violin teacher last spring. She's clearly improving and expanding her skills. We also notice that she enthusiastically practices between weekly lessons. This excellent learning experience would not have been possible without the high quality teaching.

Our daughter has recently switched to Viola and I've no doubt she will continue to learn and enjoy learning from Humberto as she has already done with the violin.

The trickiest part about violin playing is making a beautiful sound. I dig into technique right away so even the simplest songs you are learning will wow your friends and family members! From there we learn many fun and popular pieces and songs, we work to what style of music works best for you! I also teach children and know how to help them feel comfortable so they can feel the joy of expressing themselves through beautiful violin playing.

The violin has been a constant and enriching presence throughout my life, and I enjoy helping people engage with this instrument that is demanding and rewarding in equal measure. No matter your age or level of expertise, I would be happy to help you along as you discover new musical territory. I’m most fluent in the classical style, but am happy to explore other areas with you as well, from bluegrass to Broadway.

About Kris
I have been teaching the violin to students of all ages and abilities for close to twenty years, and have had great satisfaction in seeing them all grow and develop over time. Some of my younger students have gone on to the Interlochen Arts Camp, and one of my former adult students still makes an annual summer pilgrimage to a chamber music festival in Ullapool, Scotland. Whatever your interest or ambition, I would be more than happy to help you along your way.

In addition to teaching, I am currently a member of the Delaware and West Virginia Symphony Orchestras, a former member of the Huntsville, Alabama Symphony Orchestra, and have performed as a substitute violinist with the Virginia Symphony, Richmond Symphony, Maryland Symphony, and National Philharmonic Orchestras. I hold a BM in violin from George Mason University.

I have played music for over 30 years. I have taught privately for 15 years. I am certified as a public school music teacher. I have a doctorate degree in education.

I teach not because I have to, but because I want to. I love music, and want to share that knowledge with others. I find joy in helping others succceed!

I cater my lessons to each student’s needs, and create a weekly plan to help them. My philosophy is that its not how long you practice, its how well you practice. I teach you the correct way to practice.

I have experience working with both adults and children. I also teach violin.

About Isaac
Music has always been my life’s passion! I am a violinist, pianist, and vocalist. I started playing violin when I was 3. My father and uncle were orchestral conductors, so music was the family business. I went to school as a music education major on a full music scholarship, and I also have a masters and doctorate degree in education. I come from Texas, where I taught private lessons for 14 years and had award-winning, public school choral and orchestral programs for 10. (Recordings of my group are available upon request!)

As a soloist I have performed internationally and have worked with world-renowned conductors. The highlight of my career was performing two solos for the Pope in front of a crowd of 250,000 people!

My lessons are structured to address your needs as a student. I take pride in creating learning programs catered to yo
ur individual needs as a student.

I strive to make every lesson fun and meaningful. My joy comes from watching others grow, learn and love music as much as I do!

What I learned taking from him was not just about playing the violin, it was about being a great musician, educator, and person. He is selfless, hardworking, and he gives his 100% into teaching. He made me want to take an active role in my learning & I can’t express my gratitude.
