Private Violin Teacher

I have taught violin for 30 years. My students enjoy playing in groups and performing as soloists. Many of my violin students have attended music camps throughout the U.S I teach using a combination of Suzuki and my own select books and pieces. I offer three showcases per year that are filled with such FUN. The showcases are so fun that the usual response to them is : Can I play more than one song next time and I should have invited more friends to come. I am excited that YOU want music lessons

She is outstanding. I am very impressed with her teaching my daughter violin.

It was a great first day. My child felt motivated by her teacher

Cara is the best music teacher we've ever met. My daughter Amanda (now 6 years old) started learning piano from her 8 months ago. Before that Amanda learned piano for 1 year but didn't have good progress. Now, Not only can Amanda play piano very well, but also she can play violin well for 5 variations of Twinkle Twinkle, after only 9 violin classes from Cara. The most important thing is: Amanda is falling love with the music, which I believe will benefit her whole life. In our opinion, experience, fun, discipline and child-centered are the key to Cara's teaching success. We have met with her husband (a retired band director), and two daughters (both professional violinists), we can feel their love to the music and really admire their music skill.

Our friends thought we were crazy when they knew the fact that we need to drive 60 minutes single trip to take the weekly lesson, but after they see Amanda playing piano and violin, they think it well deserves it.

Cara is the best music teacher for kids in Metro-Orlando area. If you want your kid to fall in love with music, she is your best choice. Go Cara!

Private Violin Teacher

As a violin teacher, I focus on two core concepts: having an idea of what you want to create musically, and figuring out how to create it. Playing the violin is learning to combine creativity and emotion with logic and practicality. For every piece of music I teach, I guide students to access their inner musical creativity (something I strongly believe everyone has!) in order to have ideas on how they can express the music in an effective and impactful way that makes sense, and to figure out what kinds of emotions they can bring out through the piece. I then give structured step-by-step instruction and guidance to gain the technical abilities and fundamentals needed to bring their ideas to life through the violin.

About Brian

I have been a performer and teacher based in New York since 2005. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School, an Artist Diploma from Yale University, and a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree from Stony Brook University. My experience as a teacher includes having been

I have had many coaches and teachers over the year and often they fell into either of these two categories:
- Very analytical, lot of focus on technical issues, but rather dry and uninspired musically.
- Very emotional and inspiring, wonderful performers themselves. But they struggle to be helpful when I encountered technical roadblocks.

Prof. Bak was the first teacher I have had that somehow managed to have the best of both worlds. An extremely sensitive musician who feels the music deeply and is able to transfer that inspiration to his students; while at the same time, he is incredibly patient and analytical when needed to assist students with their technical issues or musical understanding (such as harmonic structure, or historical background of the pieces).

Absolute gem of a musician/teacher to find!
Younghee
Dr. Bak taught both of my sons for several years. Every lesson had a goal, and he always gave clear instructions to reach those goals. My sons improved very much from working with him, and came to appreciate music more! He also helped write very helpful recommendation letters for them when they were applying for colleges. Thank you Dr. Bak, you're the best!
Lisa
I’ve had Mr. Bak as my violin teacher from my elementary school years to now! He explains everything until I clearly understand and I always look forward to the lessons during the week. In the end, the pieces I play always puts a smile on my family and friends. Every year I saw growth and my violin skills improved more and more. I cannot believe how much I have grown from the lessons that I have taken!!

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

How to Read Sheet Music: Violin Notes for Beginners | TakeLessons

The most valuable skill you can develop as a musician is learning to read music. While it’s possible to learn to play “by ear,” reading music opens up the world to you as an artist! There are many different ways to write music. Guitarists often read off of charts outlining the chord progressions for the song. Drummers have a rhythm chart showing them what to play. As a violinist, however, you'll most likely be reading off of violin sheet music. Standard sheet music is filled with direc …
