I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

About Stephanie

In following years, I did post graduate work at Alverno College and went on to complete Suzuki teacher training in Suzuki Books 1-4. Besides teaching private violin, viola, and piano

I started playing violin at 3 years old. Wichita State University gave me the opportunity to get my Music Ed degree and start teaching lessons. I have taken over 500 lessons myself and played in many heavy gigging bands playing gigs almost every weekend. Improvising, Country, Jazz, and Rock are my specialties but I have played lots of Blues, Funk, and Latin jazz as well.

About Rob

Make sure you contact me about scheduling. I have other students and a job that sometimes changes week to week. I may have other times available. Let me know.

Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.
Jeff
great first lesson. Personable and informative.
Lin
Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

Private Violin Teacher

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a recent graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music, where I received both my MM as well as my BM degrees in violin performance. I've studied with with many world renowned musicians and am a very active international performer, performing from CA and CO to London and Cuba.

I am a native of California, born and raised in Los Angeles and have been surrounded by musicians my whole life. With both my parents and my brother playing the cello, I have always found passion and love for music and the community built by musicians. I started playing piano at a young age and after a few years transferred to violin which I then dedicated myself to and grew into my career.

Lessons are whatever you need them to be, but in general I will focus on using scales, etudes and solo repertoire to: solidify technique, improve ear training, and expand your musical portfolio.

I believe that music can be learned and loved by everyone from young children to adults and by ...

About Sarah

As a professional violinist I have had the privilege to study and work with countless incredible musicians, including the Cavani Quartet, Peter Salaff, Keith Robinson, the Dover Quartet, and the Juilliard Quartet. An avid orchestral player as well as chamber player, I have also played with orchestra

Sarah really helped me with my basic techniques! I've been trying to learn how to play violin by myself over the pandemic and finding online lessons with her was the ANSWER. She's incredibly kind and patient and explains posture and walks me through scales and etudes to strengthen my basics. Sarah also has a broad understanding of repertoire, which I hope to also be able to play soon!
Zoey
Sarah is a great teacher! Her combined use of technical and musical ideas has increased my appreciation for music and has made me better at the violin!
Sarah
Can't recommend Sarah enough! She is very good at assessing a student’s abilities and interests and adjusting her lessons accordingly. She makes the lessons fun and challenging.

Awesome!!!!! I know I won’t find another teacher as good as her. I can now play music that I didn’t think I would ever be able to play.
Kaylee
I had never taken online lessons before, so was apprehensive. My experience with Rebecca exceeded my expectations. It was well worth the money to get to the bottom of my technique issues and get expert feedback on my playing. I highly recommend taking lessons with Rebecca!!!
Lawrence
Best teacher ever! Rebecca is not only knowledgeable, but able to explain things in a way that makes sense to me. I still can’t believe I’m able to study with someone like her. She knows classical and rock so well. I’ve learned so much!!!!

"An outstanding mentor

Being in my 30's, I didn't know what to expect. I assumed that most teachers would only teach children. Betsy has taught a range of students, from very young to quite a bit older and I've been so blessed to have her sent my way.

She's been patient and understanding of my random schedule (and of my terrible playing), professional, on time, encouraging, always shows up with a smile on her face and a thirst to teach. It's one thing to be excited to learn, but it's another to find such a wonderful person that enjoys teaching the way she does. I also appreciate the fact that she puts her own love for the instrument(s) into practice by constantly having performances in the field as well. It's hard to find this type of individual in any area of life and I'm so glad she's become my teacher."
