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!

Cody is a wonderful teacher. He is easy going, patient and holds a vast tome of knowledge in his head. Yes, he has a masters in Bach, but don't think he is snooty, he used to play violin in a metal band.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Violin Teacher

Experienced and well rounded musician. Just graduated from New England Conservatory with Masters in Voice Performance. Performed recently as Cunegonde in Bernstein's Candide and Queen of the Night in Mozart's Magic Flute.

Also trained in violin (15 years) and piano (10 years), and have experience tutoring music theory and keyboard harmony at the undergrad level.

I love playing in orchestra and chamber ensembles, and will gladly play with you to work on listening and musicianship as well as technique and fundamentals. We can also work on playing by ear, and can address all different types of repertoire!

Lets start the road towards your musical growth and enjoyment in the way YOU work best!!

While we are at it, we can work on another instrument, music theory, or even an academic subject (check out my other subjects on my page!).

About Catherine

Hi! I'm Catherine. I'm passionate for anything music, math, or science, and I would love to work with you to help you accomplish your academic, musical, or personal goals!

A BIT ABOUT ME:

I have a BA in Chemistry and Music (voice and violin concentrations) with academic honors, and a Masters in Music from New England Conservatory (NEC). I have lab experience in Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, and Astrochemistry at Rollins College, Georgia Tech and The University of Virginia.

I have taught and tutored keyboard harmony and music theory at the Undergrad level at NEC, and have tutored privately (math up to calculus, chemistry up to organic, writing).

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU:

Having trained in violin for 15 years, piano for 10, and voice for 8, I am ready to help you expand your skills with music lessons.

I can't wait to h

elp you in the way that YOU learn best, and taper our lessons to what will help YOUR GROWTH. Going through school and lessons was not a breeze for me, and I was never one of those people who just “got” things right away. For me it took a diligent learning process, so I know what it's like to learn things from scratch, work with a tutor, ask questions, and make mistakes to achieve the best I can. I want to help you do the same!!

Let's schedule a trial lesson and go from there! Look forward to meeting you.

Catherine is very responsible and extremely helpful for my music theory study. She set up additional office hours to help me understand the knowledge and pass the advanced tonal practice course. Her introduction was very clear and she delivered it with great patience. She was also very thoughtful to be flexible to fit my schedule. I really appreciate her help, and would highly recommend her.

More about Keri...
Keri has loved music for as long as she can remember. She started piano lessons at age 4, and eventually switched to violin at age 8. At 10 years of age, she was accepted as a 1st violinist into the Napa Valley Youth Symphony. She spent the next

eight years honing her craft, learning as much as she could, and had the incredible experience of performing at Carnegie Hall in New York City with the Napa Valley Youth Symphony her Junior year of High School.

While Keri always nerded out listening to Bluegrass and Celtic tunes and learning them by ear (entire albums!) for fun, she practiced multiple hours every day studying classical technique and started composing and arranging her own pieces of music in high school.

Keri received her B.M. in Jazz Studies from Sonoma State University in 2015, and graduated with Distinction. Her musical goals have been centered around being diverse, open-minded, and adaptable, which has helped her cross many genres, play as a guest in several local bands, and adapting her style to whatever was necessary in the moment.

Keri received a Telly Award in 2015 for playing violin and singing the music on a Toyota Commercial, spent six years in the band "Anadel" as the violinist, background vocalist, and writer/arranger (releasing three albums), and eventually started composing music alongside a team of five other composers for TellTale Games: The Walking Dead. She also composed music for a few TellTale Games trailers, including one for "The Wolf Among Us". Keri has been featured on numerous albums (as player, producer, and arranger), and is currently spending her time writing and producing her first solo album, set to release in January 2020.

"I have been taking violin lessons with Connie for almost 2 years now and i would highly recommend her! She has really helped me correct a lot of my bad ha
bits from years of just playing on my own. Connie is professional, very patient and passionate about music and teaching. I take lessons with her privately (not with Take Lessons) and am thankful to have her as my teacher!"

"Elizabeth is an artist at heart. She's very patient and kind. I highly recommend her!

I came to Elizabeth as an adult student with a few years of exper
ience in playing, but with a lot of doubts about whether I could advance. I'd previously taken lessons at the Music Institute of Chicago (Evanston campus), but I didn't like how they did things over there. They are extremely overpriced for what they offer. In my first lesson there, my teacher wouldn't even let me pick up the bow and she made me play Twinkle Twinkle over and over again...

Elizabeth made playing very relaxing. Her approach is just to attack the material without any hesitations. And if you make a mistake, just do it again. She let me pick out the repertoire, which made me excited to play, and offered great recommendations on material that would help my playing. Sometimes I was too ambitious and she'd be the first to point out that maybe I wasn't ready for a piece just yet. Then she'd recommend something else that would help me get there.

Elizabeth teaches from her home and it's pretty easy to get to by train, bus, or car."

the most important part is to evaluate and inspire his interest with music and violin. Tom did a great job in tailoring his lessons towards my son's interest and learning style, and made the learning process very fun."
