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

About Cara

Making music and Teaching music has always been a huge part of my life! Music has brought such joy to my personal life and the lives of my students and their friends and family. I teach music because it is such a wonderful experience for everyone involved from the practice room to the performance.

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

I am extremely experienced with over 30 years of teaching privately, both in Florida and in Boston/New York. I teach with fun while customizing my knowledge and experience to each individual student at their level and speed. I enjoy the creativity of learning each individual’s needs and personality. My main goals are to get the student playing what they want to play as quickly as possible. I teach what to practice and how to practice with the least amount of time necessary. I teach both violin and viola to all ages and all levels. Teaching is my passion!

About Lisa

With over 30 years experience as a professional classical musician -performer and teacher of violin and viola, I am very confident in my knowledge in how to teach all ages and levels! All my former students have achieved their goals and more! Just last year my graduating senior was accepted to both

Where do I begin. Kathleen is extremely patient with me and very encouraging. I have loved the violin for a long time. However, over the years I would get discouraged and quit. With Kathleen, I look forward to our sessions. She's very knowledgeable and I like that she will play along with me and send audio clips that reinforce the place where I struggle. I have learned so much in such a short period. She's a keeper! I'm truly blessed to have her in my (music) life. Thank you so much Kathleen.

Online Violin Teacher

A conservatory-trained musician offering violin and piano lessons, I am able to teach in Russian, Kazakh, and English. I am certified as a violin/viola teacher at all levels from beginner to advanced/conservatory levels by the Glinka Conservatory in Novosibirsk, Russia, where I received my undergraduate degree.

In the past nine years, I have taught beginning and intermediate students on the piano, and beginners (age 3) to advanced conservatory musicians on violin.

About Moldir

My approach is to respond to the needs of the individual student. With beginners, I initially assess the student’s musical ear and use games and other fun exercises to introduce fundamental elements of music theory. At the same time, I work with the beginner to establish a foundation of good habits

"Jessica started teaching my son in Feb 2014, just after he turned 5. He told me that he wanted to play an instrument and chose the violin, so we went online and found Jessica here and on the Suzuki website. Her experience and reviews really stood out and I can tell you from our personal experience that every word is true. She is the most patient, kind, fun, engaging, and positive teacher you could ask for for your child. And on top of it all, she is an excellent violinist herself who really understands music and how to explain it.

My son has come a really long way and he is very proud to be able to play the violin! He is not always the easiest to work with, (some days his favorite word is 'no'!) but she really encourages him when he gets frustrated and I know she is a big part of why he has come so far.

One of the things I love about Jessica is her ability to adapt seamlessly to the needs of her students. She is flexible and able to adjust what she does to take advantage of her students' strengths and gradually improve their weaknesses and doesn't just stick to one way of teaching. She is also incredibly accessible if you have questions or need guidance and always stays in touch, even with her busy schedule.

After a few months of my son taking lessons, we even decided to hire her for an extra half hour so that I could get formal instruction too. I am 39 and never seriously played an instrument before (1 year of elementary school clarinet, notwithstanding) yet she can go right from teaching my 5 yr old to working with me without missing a beat. I feel like she brings out the best in her students and I see concrete improvement in my own skills and understanding every week and can't believe how far I have come in only a few months with her.

So bottom line is whether you are 5 or 50 and no matter your experience level, if you are looking for a violin teacher, I highly recommend hiring Jessica immediately"
