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.

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.

Private Violin Teacher

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.

About Richard

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.

Private Violin Teacher

Be a violin virtuoso!

About Jacqueline

Hello future students! I've been playing violin for 20 of my 26 years of age and teaching for 10 years. I believe that the most important part of learning the violin is having fun and building a passion for music.

In my lessons we will focus on proper violin technique, music theory and most importantly (and fun!) practical application. In practical application, the student chooses what he/she would like to work on, whether it be Mozart or The Chainsmokers or the Moana score, and we learn it together!

I also have a lot of experience in music production and engineering which means that my students can professionally record themselves in my home studio.

Finally, I am very proficient in music theory and am available for AP music tutoring. I can also teach beginner piano.

If this sounds like fun to you - let's get started! :)


Teaching method:

I have a three pronged approach to my teaching method: technique, music theory and practical application. However, I believe the most important part of any teaching plan is molding it to fit the student’s needs, so the following methods are entirely flexible.

TECHNIQUE
For technique, we start with simple scales to work on bowing and intonation. When this becomes easy for the student, we move on to more complex key signatures and minor scales, eventually moving into 2 octaves and learning the left hand positions. For intermediate students who want to excel in classical music, we will work on etudes as well as scales.

MUSIC THEORY
I teach music theory as it applies to what the student is currently playing so as not to cause confusion. For example, if the student is learning to play a new piece with a more complex rhythm, we will go over time signatures, how many beats each note gets and so on. I always make flashcards for students so they can “practice” music theory when I’m not there, especially for students who are just learning to read music.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION
In practical application, the student can apply what they learn about technique and music theory to a fun song. I start with the Suzuki books because I like the way they’re structured in terms of technique, and because I love the repertoire. Suzuki books generally come with a CD containing piano accompaniment tracks, which I’ve found students love to play with. Finally, I let the student pick a song of their choice and we learn it together. If the student isn’t enjoying Suzuki, we focus more on the student’s song of choice.

Jacqueline is the best! She is one of the most patient and encouraging teachers I have ever come across. She always makes sure her students feel comfortable and work at their own pace, and I very much appreciate her upbeat personality and constant reassurance of progress! She makes learning a new instrument easy and fun! Highly recommend her!!!

Amazing teacher! Got so much help from her over the years. She has been teaching me for three years now, and it has honestly been so helpful. She is always ahead of time, and reminds me about the lessons. She gives outstanding pieces of music for me to try and I really do enjoy every single one. I truly do learn so much from her and I am extremely happy that I can learn the violin from a professional like her!

Private Violin Teacher

I began my interest on the violin at a young age, starting at six within my elementary school. As I grew older, I became enamored with the sound and craft of the instrument, putting my knowledge into it deeply as I wished to pursue it with reverent passion. I understand the difficulties and challenges facing those wishing to pursue the violin, from money to teaching accessibility. I've seen many a great talent give up due to this. I make learning flexible but fun; engaging but technical and most of all, understanding and tailored for the individual needs of the student. I specialize in string instrumentation and have a degree in music education, working towards my master's to give the gift of music to all, especially the realm of string instruments.

About Ashley

I am currently a junior at Ramapo College studying music education but I am no foreigner to teaching. I have been teaching for some years now with general ages ranging between 3 to 25, in the violin, viola and cello. I have also taught music theory from a beginner's standpoint to a college sophomore level in conjunction with teaching said instruments. I have a passion for teaching that I love to give my students the passion of learning as teaching is not only fun, but also one of the most rewarding experiences in life as is having the guidance and educational support of a good teacher. Students can expect my 110% effort and know they can depend on me for consistency, accuracy and personalized lesson plans based on the level and goals they want to achieve. I aim to foster a supportive learning environment for my students in their hom

es or practice space of their choice as the main root of discontinuity in studies is the lack of support and passion. Feel free to contact me at anytime should any questions arise and remember, music is about having fun, so let's have fun!

Ashley was very helpful to me. I was floundering. I am a brand new 'musician', still learning to read music. I would still be working with her, but I had to move suddenly. She was very encouraging and I hope to be able to continue lessons again with someone in my new location.

I really enjoyed my 1st lesson with Ashley. She gave me hope that I’m not a basket case. I feel encouraged that I might someday play well enough not to send people running for earplugs or exits.

Private Violin Teacher

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.

About Andrea

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.
