Private Violin Teacher

Hi everyone! I'm a music teacher who wants to help you to grow in the musical field.

About Abigail

Languages and Art! I had a great journey to become a teacher. When I was studying music in high school I had a "no too nice teacher", and that motivated me to study education... why? Because I promise myself to become a person who would be able to share knowledge without prejudice or selfishness. I

My violin and viola students study classical Russian technique--used by the best players in history. It involves efficient use of the body, both to avoid injury when playing and also to get the best possible sound from the instrument. Students progress in technique, musicality, and music theory.

I am an adult student who has been taking violin lessons with Elana for about a year now. Elana is a highly skilled and talented instructor. Her unlimited patience and constant encouragement is what keeps me going. I always come out of the lessons feeling confident and excited to learn more. While Violin is known to be a difficult instrument to learn, Elana's way of teaching makes you feel like "you've got this!" I'm so happy I've found such an amazing teacher as Elana and I would highly recommend her to anyone who's interested in learning the Violin. With Elana, you can be confident you'll be playing beautifully in no time!

I hired Elana to give violin lessons to my daughter and help her prepare for audition.She already had private teacher but after two years I was not happy with the progress she made and decided to hire someone else.After first lesson with Elana I was sure I made the right decision.After second lesson my daughter told me she learned more with Elana in two lessons than with previous teacher in two years!Elana is very passionate when it comes to teaching violin,she is honest about her expectations and student's progress,yet very patient and mild in interaction.I could not recommend her more!

Each lesson is fun and engaging. My philosophy is to teach students how to teach themselves and how to think critically about problem solving. A variety of music and exercises will be introduced. Younger students will play a variety of theory games and do exercises to accelerate their potential.

Jenae is a great teacher!

My son just started violin lessons with Jenae and after barely a month is making great progress and staying motivated, even though he's starting this endeavor at almost 11 years old. Jenae's approach is very encouraging and methodical. We have been very pleased with our choice.

Online Violin Teacher

When it comes to violin I use both book and audio. I want to help my students learn to not only read the music but to also hear and feel it. I have been teaching this way for the last few years and found that my students have a deeper understanding of the music by learning the see with their ears. Each student is tasked with coming up with goals that they want to reach, goals their parents would like for them to reach and from there a personalized path for learning is created and followed.

About April

I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music

"This is an exceptional Instructor...

I initially joined Take Lessons to provide Piano instruction to my youngest daughter, that did not work out too well. I had already paid in advance and so with the remaining balance I decided to provide My older daughter with Violin Instruction since she is playing for her school.
Peter came in and has improved my daughter's talent in such a short time that it's almost unexplainable. He connects, he's precise, and he's easy going. In no time my daughter could literally read music as per his instruction. He's done wonders.

I highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for the right instructor. Thanks."
