I’m an adult viola student which is kind of different for me. I started playing again after a couple years and I’m trying to learn ways to play with other musicians. Emily has been really good with helping me focus on what I want to learn. She is patient with me and also plays with me and makes me feel comfortable in my lesson. afterwards I feel good and positive and I want to play more! I suggest her for anyone trying to be creative and wants to improve on tempo, rythm, tone etc. she’s good.

It is a year later and my daughter is playing well. Anje enjoys her classes and thinks Emily is a great instructor.
Students can except immediate improvement within a matter of weeks, especially in the following areas: technique and posture, musicality, breadth of repertoire, confidence in performing, and general interest in your instrument. Many of my current and past students have acquired an insatiable urge to practice at every waking hour, and a mutual feeling of "I can't wait for our lesson!" quickly develops.
Hello! My name is Richard, and I'm so glad you stumbled upon my profile. I've been playing piano since I was 6 years old and violin since I was 11, and I've been teaching for about 3 years to date. I'm a young teacher, which means a couple things: 1) I'm very relatable to my students 2) I keep things interesting and enjoyable and --(this one's for the parents) 3) my price is one of the cheapest out there. Albeit young, I've accrued many accolades that should assure you that you're in good hands: National Orchestra Award, two-time All State Orchestra member, WVIA Artist of the Year Finalist, and much more. My mission is founded on the basis of altruism. As a student at the University of Pennsylvania, I'm exposed to many outlets of community service. I'm currently a member of the Penn Music Mentorship Program, Play on Philly, and the Penn C
hamber Orchestra Society. Thus, I'm here to inspire and enhance your lives with music. Together, we can explore this wondrous universe that is music.

Patrick is a great fiddle teacher. He is a world-class musician, but he is able to meet me at my level - a rusty classical violinist. He is very encouraging and positive. He's quite knowledgeable about a very broad range of fiddle music. I highly recommend him.
I am an experienced classical violin teacher who has been teaching for 5 years from ages 5-16, beginner to advanced! I focus heavily on technique and foundations so the student has a well rounded music education and confidence in the violin that they can take with them forever. For beginners I use the Suzuki books, I Can Read Music series, String Builder series and Winning Rhythms. For more advanced violinists I use the Introduction to the Positions series and etude books such as Wohlfahrt and Kreuzer.
My name is Jocelyn and I have been playing the violin and viola for 13 years and teaching for 5 years. I am principal viola of the Bryn Mawr-Haverford Orchestra and I also am part of a chamber music group. In high school, I was in the Maryland All-State Orchestra for four years and was in the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra (MCYO), one of the most prestigious orchestras in Maryland, for four years. During my summers, I attended the Interlochen Center for the Arts high school music program. I have been taught by musicians from the National Symphony Orchestra and National Philharmonic. My students improve significantly since our first lessons. One of my first students whom I now give Skype lessons to successfully got into one of the best orchestras in the DC area and is now principal (1st chair) of the viola section of that orchestra. A
nother student, who I started teaching when they were six years old, is now a year later on Suzuki book 2, Wohlfahrt Etudes and is learning third position as a seven year old. I use a comprehensive set of books that teach theory, rhythm and pieces that I use to teach students how to prepare and perform "performance ready" pieces.
Jocelyn is punctual and courteous. She was flexible and responsive via email. She is a great fit for an outgoing child.

Jocelyn was very professional and patient with my daughter who is just a beginner. We are excited to see progress from week to week!
October 22, 2017
Jocelyn came to our home and worked with our son. She was very patient and kind with him and was able to find what to correct on the first lesson! She recommended some books for us to buy and I think that she will be a great teach for him.
The Violin Studio of Andrea L. offers violin lessons for children, teens and adults, from beginners to advanced players. Lessons are conducted one-on-one in my private studio in the Spring Arts District of Philadelphia. I teach traditional, classical violin playing, and students can expect to gain not only a comprehensive understanding of violin technique, but also a thorough grasp of note-reading, musicality, tone production, rhythm, ear-training, theory and practice/learning techniques.
Music and the violin have always resonated strongly with me. After winning various competitions in my childhood years and traveling to China to perform as a teen, nothing seemed more natural than making a lifelong commitment to the violin. I moved to the culturally and musically-rich city of Boston, MA, to study violin performance for my undergraduate degree, and then I went on to complete a master’s degree with honors in Pittsburgh PA.
With 7 years of higher-education training, musical experiences, and the cultural influence of living in two big cities under my belt, I was ready to dive headfirst into a full-time professional career in music performance. Philadelphia, PA was the next stop for me and it didn’t take long to call this beautiful city home. Soon I was on stage—and under the stage in many cases!—with many of Philadelphia’s to
p professional orchestras and performing consistently with pop music artists like Josh Groban.
I have had the honor of working in varied professional settings and with inspiring musical colleagues around the world. These experiences have helped to transform me into a well-rounded musician who thrives on stage, in the pit, and behind a camera, who puts just as much passion into teaching Vivaldi to my students as into performing ACDC’s Back in Black to cheering crowds.
Along with performing and teaching, I also own an award-winning live musical entertainment company called Miss Musique, which provides live music for weddings, parties and other special events. And in my free time I enjoy doing yoga, checking out Philadelphia’s newest restaurants, and playing with my cat Mittens.
I want my students to enjoy learning how to play violin no matter their age. I started playing at the age of 3 years old, and I am now 26. I know what it's like to grow up learning an instrument as well as some of the difficulties that accompany it. I believe all students should have a balance between classical/theory and a genre of their choice. It's nice to have a few songs that they recognize to keep them interested.
My name is Jordan Price. I have been playing violin since the age of 3 years old. I was an All-State violinist in the state of Minnesota from ages 14-18 years old. During my high school years, I also played "God Bless America" at two MLB Minnesota Twins baseball games. I also played the national anthem for my sporting events growing up: basketball and volleyball games.
Once I left for college, I played in the orchestra at UW-La Crosse, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I now have had my own music business, Dolce Amor, since I graduated high school. My business partner, Kailey, and I play in weddings, events, etc. all over the United States.
I have been teaching since 2012 and love seeing improvement. I believe in FUN. Learning an instrument has so many benefits, and loving it can really change a person's life. I am so tha
nkful I learned an instrument starting from a young age, but it's never too late to start. I LOVE music. I honestly don't know where my life would be without it.
Violin is a complex art, one that takes many years to develop, but can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your life. Despite its challenges, love for the violin and music should never take a back seat in a lesson, That is what I will focus on. Nevertheless, there are methods and techniques crucial to violin playing that I will also keep at the forefront. At the end of the day, students have their own unique voice that I will try to nurture while at the same time teach them the fundamental tools to achieve it. Whether just starting out or already playing for many years, I will strive to do what is best for the student. To all of you, I wish you best of luck with violin and hope you can join me in making music!
Hello! I am a student at the Eastman School of Music. I currently study with Mikhail Kopelman, former 1st violinist in the Borodin and Tokyo String Quartet.

I love to help students with any problems they have, and look forward to hearing from you!
"I grew up in a musical house, play multiple instruments, and have had my fair share of music teachers. Jessica is far and away one of the best instructor
s I have seen. She is always focused, energetic and targeted, delivering the content my 8-year old needs in the format she easily understands and gets excited about. I heartily recommend Jessica for anyone considering a teacher and would not accept any other substitutes. She is top notch."
"Victor is an excellent teacher. He teaches music that I am interested in, and tailors lessons to my skill level. He has a strong background in music theor
y, and has done a great job of helping me grasp concepts that I have never understood before. As an beginning adult student, I could not have found a better teacher."
"Patient, encouraging, knowledgeable
He is a very good instructor. His ears some how manage to survive the treacherous hour of me trying to find notes wit
hout even a hint of suffering. Not only has he guided me on how to practice and improve, my violin was in terrible disarray. He has helped me identify what needed repair which has also helped in the quality of sound. The environment where he instructs is welcoming, tidy, and comfortable. He is fantastic in his abilities as a musician and a teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"I was extremely impressed by Alethia. The first thing my daughter said when we get back into the car after her first lesson: Mommy can we came back tomorr
ow? Alethia is very knowledgeable and extremely patient."
"I had been taking lessons with another instructor on violin and found Luisa through one of her youtube videos. Because the other instructor wasn't really
working out and I was having trouble understanding, I contacted her for lessons and it has worked out great. She has a lot of patience which has really helped with my self-consciousness. I would recommend her to students of all levels."
"I am an adult learner and wanted a teacher that did not treat me like a child. Erin is a great teacher and treats me like an adult. She helps me to atta
in my goals and works at my pace. She encourages me especially when I don't think I can do a particular piece or perform at a recital. I know she can take me through to any level I want to accomplish on the violin."
"My 12 year old grandson has been playing violin since he was 5. He started playing with Nikita in August 2017. Nikita is correcting all the bad habits t
hat have crept into RJ's playing. I can see a huge difference in his confidence as well as the quality of his playing. Nikita has been extremely patient with him and has been very flexible with his lesson times due to sports schedules. Thank you Nikita!"
"Susanna is a gifted and helpful teacher as well as a friendly person. You’ll be happy taking lessons with her!"
"Panagiota is an amazing instructor, and I have improved so greatly since I started lessons with her! I completely recommend Panagiota as an instructor if
you’re looking to make progress and greatly improve your violin or viola skills. She is a patient, knowledgeable, and spectacular instructor to have!"
Playing the violin should be fun - not a pain! Some arm fatigue is normal when you're first starting out, but anything more than that may be a sign of poor posture, technique or instrument placement. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you practice and play...
Many beginner players tense up their shoulders, arms or wrist without even realizing it, which can cause a lot of problems. Just relax! Focus on your breathing, but also don't lose your posture.
