Chris S. Temecula, CA

About Chris

Hi there! My name is Chris and I've been playing music my entire life and I believe that with the right attitude and environment anyone can achieve musical greatness! I was born into a musical family and have studied classical piano since I was 4 years old! I am very well versed in music theory and proper technique, with an emphasis on avoiding player's injuries, as well as a great knowledge of classical Pieces for any skill level. Alas! As a young teenager I grew rebellious and learned how to play the electric guitar and have since sought teachers outside my family to learn modern styles and 5 other instruments!! I have also worked toward a music degree and have made music the center of my life. Classical music is not everyone's passion but a good practice routine, ...

Mary is an exceptionally talented teacher who always takes the time to fully explain every detail. I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to learn to play violin.
Diane G. Bonsall, CA

I have been teaching the violin to children and adults for 8 years and teach methods that are appropriate to their level, whether they are beginners or have been playing for a while. I teach from the concept of Musicianship: including teaching correct techniques for playing, using theory books and violin method books that are creative and easy to follow. I teach note-reading as well as aural learning because a student needs both music notation and ear training to gain the best possible perspective on learning this instrument.
My husband and I have a violin shop where we rent, sell, service and restore violins and bows in North County, San Diego. Once you schedule lessons with me you can contact me for details on renting a violin (fiddle) for yourself or your child. The violins we rent and sell are professionally set up by my husband who is a trained luthier. We also have all the necessary accessories you will need such as rosin, shoulder rests, tuners, various chin rests to ...

About Diane

I love to teach the violin and fiddle. I really enjoy working with adult beginners to help them discover music. You are never too old to learn! My specialty is working with young children and youth to establish a wonderful foundation for the student. I work to incorporate, into the lessons, a strong sense of musicianship with both the violin and fiddle. I am a structured teacher, one that is helpful, friendly and fun to work with. In working with young children, I encourage the parent to be involved with the lessons...to partnership, so that the child will progress and have an enjoyable experience. I use a modern approach in selecting books for each student.. books that inspire and encourage the student at his/her skill level and age. Having taught several instruments during the ...

Great Violin Lessons

Diane is a great Teacher.
We are very pleased that she is teaching our young daughter (12) to play the Violin. At the beginning we were a little bit nervous since this was the first time for my daughter to be in contact with music and it turned out to be great.
Diane has been very supportive, always finding better ways to reinforce the lessons and making sure her students understand every practice objective. She is patience, very flexible and she always emphasizes the importance of having fun while one learns to play an instrument. She works hard to prepare and keep a good record of every single lesson.
We are excited, but most important, our daughter is enjoying learning to play the violin. Thanks Diane!

Looking forward to a new journey

Diane has been a Godsend! She is very patient and kind-hearted. She explains things in a way that is easy to understand; for a beginner this is very important. She teaches about the instrument and its history, as well as the music that comes from it - classical violin as well as the fiddle -- just what I was looking for. She is always encouraging, upbeat and willing to go the extra mile for those less knowledgable than herself. A wonderful teacher for both young and adult students.

I have had an excellent experience thus far. I thoroughly enjoy going to my lessons. Diane is patient, positive, knowledgable and fun to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering learning to play the violin.
Richard C. Fallbrook, CA

I provide students with original compositions, both solo pieces and duets, that teach the essential motor memory that is necessary to play in tune. Sound files of all of these pieces can be listened to and downloaded from a website.

About Richard

I have studied the violin since I was six and have played for several decades in professional symphony orchestras, opera companies, and musicals. I've also attended many chamber music workshops and have played as a soloist at restaurants, weddings, and retirement communities. I began teaching violin in 1977. It's hard to play the violin in tune, and ten years ago I began to compose studies for my students that help them proactively to learn to play in tune. I call this approach The Pitchfixer Method, and it's based on principles of motor memory. I've used this approach with dozens of students with great results; it forms the core of the curriculum for the first several years. My current students include young children, teenagers, young adults, and mature adult beginners.

Incredible Teacher!

I am 58 and began learning violin with Richard almost 2 years ago. I am so fortunate to have found him as my first and only teacher. Richard's style of teaching is really incredible; he's skilled and experienced enough to take a student in virtually any direction they want, while making sure to keep the student focused on the essentials of learning to master the instrument. His self-published lesson books teach a student everything they need to learn in a fun and unassuming way; I learned how to read music and great technique without even realizing it.

Richard is ultimately dedicated to teaching his students how to play well and he's continually improving his teaching method. You couldn't ask for a better teacher!

DEDICATED

I'm 12 yrs.old. I am taking lessons since I was 6. I only had
Mr. Richard for a month for violin lessons. What makes him
different from my other teachers is that he developed his own
music books, and keeps revising and improving it. That really
shows his dedication as a music teacher.

He is a one of great instructor.

Last 8 months with Richard, learned more than last 2 years with other instructor. He motivate you instead of discourage you like other instructor did.. I am a senior citizen but start violin two years ago therefore I was looking for a instructor who has patience.
Anna R. Murrieta, CA

See student videos on this website, one is a 7 year old playing on a recital after 3 months of lessons. See video of College aged student in recital. List of my former student's accomplishments: One of my former students plays on Broadway, there are professional musicians, music teachers, entertainers.

Lara H. Oceanside, CA

I began playing at the age of seven, and continue to study and improve my technique. I am very passionate about sharing musical education with others, and understand that every student learns at their own pace. By combining Suzuki and Traditional methods, I tailor every lesson to each student's needs.

How Often Should You Practice Violin to REALLY Improve?
New to the violin? Not sure how often you should be practicing? Find out here with these violin practice tips from Brooklyn, NY teacher Julie P...   Whether you are just starting to learn the violin or have been playing for years, the question of how often to practice is always important to answer. This question is also tied to how long you should practice. The key factor to remember is that a lot of short practice sessions will be much more effective than one or two marathon sessions
Age or Aptitude: When to Start Violin Lessons
Some start optimistically young, others driven by passion start much later in life, but when is the right time to start violin lessons? Like any other form of art, there’s simply no black or white when it comes to exploring music. The right time to start can’t be measured exclusively by age. Some ambitious parents start their kids at the age of two, and while many go off to become YouTube sensations, a whole lot more tend to give up by the age of five. So what should you consider before diving
How to Tune Your Violin: Online Violin Tuners & Resources
As most violin teachers and prestigious musicians would agree, maintaining your musical instrument should have as much attention directed toward it as caring for the family pet.  Although your dog or cat doesn’t need regular tuning, your violin certainly does - or your playing skills won’t be popular with family or neighbors! If this is your first experience with playing music seriously, tuning your instrument may not even have occurred to you.  Nor will you notice, necessarily, slight changes
