About Monique
I began playing violin for over 30 years and have been teaching since the year 2000. I studied at the Newark Community School of the Arts for 12 years and in the Greater Newark Youth Orchestra where I played at the New Jersey PAC and Historic Symphony Hall. I've taken master classes from John Smith (teacher to Regina Carter), and taught by global performer Aiko Goto and several teachers from Juliard including Hiroshima Shimura, I have performed at festivals and weddings and taught across the country in orchestras, quartets and music camps. Most of my teaching has been with private students age range has been from 3-67

*** Lesson Details ***
I specialize in beginner and intermediate instruction and music theory (how to hold, how to read music, how to play by ear). I teach using the Suzuki method as well as a creative process to write,
read, and execute your own music. Solo pieces, holiday music, chamber quartet or orchestral arrangements etc. I have years of experience teaching adults because I believe it's never too late to learn and all people should have access to learn the arts. I teach out of my building's private room in miami beach and there is street parking after 5pm. I am the only searchable south beach violin teacher.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music stand, chairs, additional seating for parents and other child(ren) is available in the lobby downstairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand, I provide the instrument for the first two lessons, the student must have an instrument and metronome after the second lesson.

About Ilona M.

Close
Pompano Beach, FL
View Full Profile

Student needs to have the instrument. I usually use Essential Elements and Suzuki books for beginner and intermediate students. Also String Tunes.

About Ilona
I am experienced (3 years) in home school tutoring. I mostly work with Florida Virtual School students. I overlook their tests and assignments, and help them with preparations for Discussion Based Assessmemts (DBA). I also help parents with required annual evaluations and how to sign up with home education department.
For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make them interested in learning and have fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I show how to use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as learning opportunities.

I have Masters in Education (2018) with specialization in English, Curricul
um and Education; and Masters in Arts (2012) in Teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a degree in violin performance from Chicago.
I studied piano in Chicago for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.
I have taught music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements method and I Can Read Music book for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Fundamentals of Piano Theory (9 levels) combined with Master Theory (6 levels) books.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach Piano competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include technique and reading music. I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
Music theory: I use Master Theory and Fundamentals of Piano Theory books for younger ages, Alfred's music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements for strings I also use String Tunes and I Can Read Music to add more fun to the lessons as well as support reading music during the lesson. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students need to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books, flashcards & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I always bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

About Alicia
Alicia has been playing the violin since she can remember thanks to her very talented musical family. Because of their efforts she received her first exposure to loving and teaching music at an early age through attending and later assisting her mother's Suzuki string program. They also afforded her the opportunity to learn with some of the finest violin teachers Miami has to offer.
A proud alumni of Miami's public arts programs, including those of Southwood Middle School, Coral Reef Senior High and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, Alicia encourages all of her school-age students to explore their options of participating in the various youth arts organizations in the community.
In addition to her 15+ years training in violin technique and classical repertoire, she also has had almost 10 years of classical piano instructi
on and has had the privilege to perform classical, jazz, blues, latin and pop music from coast to coast and in Europe.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have found that students thrive in a curriculum that's to their pace, fun and conducive to creative thought. So I'm a fairly easygoing teacher. I wont chew you out, won't force you to practice scales on your head while you hold your breath. But I will level with you: Music takes commitment. The good news? It's really fun.
So, let me show you the joy and reward of learning music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room transferred to music room: piano, computer, music stand and library, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect student to have instrument, music stand, any appropriate books, and tuner (or home access to computer/internet)

*** Specialties ***
A Suzuki method influenced program that introduces classical music and theory step-by-step while incorporating fun games and your favorite songs.
Will also drill you on music theory and help you nail your first audition and performance.

About Victoria B.

Winston Salem, NC

View Full Profile

Hello! I am a trained Special Education teacher who has been playing the violin for 24 years. I have experience playing in community and competitive orchestras, and have received professional training. Currently I am playing in the Salem Community Orchestra. I use a blended style of teaching, and tailor instruction based on where the student is at.

Not only do I understand how to teach children, I have experience teaching adults the basics of music theory.

I am willing to drive to your home after 6PM, or weekend mornings, when my husband is home from work.

I can't wait to get to know you!!

About Victoria
My name is Victoria Bartholomew and I am excited to start working with new students! I've been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have loved watching my students grow at their individual pace.

I went to the University of Utah and earned a degree in Special Education in 2013. I am easy going and dedicated to my student's success. My teaching style is casual, fun, and moves at the pace of the student. I find that it's very important to match the student's time and comfort level before assigning skills to work on. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I typically lean towards more traditional teaching methods but am quick to blend different methods based on student needs. Instead of forcing theory, I enjoy teaching theory in a practical way. Incorporating musical theory that is meaningful for a specific piece of music te
nds to lead to better memorization and increased understanding.

Online lessons are a great option, however I prefer in person lessons. I reserve online lessons for students who are 10 or older and have been playing for at least a year.

I am currently participating in the Salem Philharmonic Orchestra and taking my own advanced violin lessons to continually improve my teaching ability. However I also have experience playing for private weddings, in small groups, fiddle music, and traditional orchestras. I also play the piano and trombone, but don't offer lessons on those instruments at this time.

I am an experienced teacher with over 20 years of practice in education and I am a performer as well, playing at La Jolla Symphony, recording soundtracks for big Hollywood productions and working with famous musicians, such as Alan Parsons Project, Deadmau5, Chance the Rapper etc. I can teach classical style as well as electric violin, improvisation, jazz and pop.
Try me!

About Anna
I am a professional violinist and pianist with MA degree in instrumental performance. I started to play when I was 6. I earned my education in Poland and Germany, where I come from. European music tradition is very long and rich in famous composers, I am sure I have a lot of knowledge to pass to my students and many years of experience in teaching. I have travelled a lot since I was a child, playing concerts in different countries. Before I moved to San Diego, I was a concertmaster of Amman Symphony Orchestra and a violin teacher at The National Music Conservatory. In 2016, I recorded an album called Petra with famous Italian jazz musician called Luca Aquino. We actually recorded few soundtracks in ancient city of Petra, where movie Indiana Jones was filmed. Our album was ranked by a Jazz magazine as 1 of 10 best jazz albums in Italy of
year 2016. Here in California I also record music for films- the last one is called The Bad Seed , produced by Rob Lowe. I had an opportunity to record it in Warner Bros Studios in Hollywood. My latest recording happened in Capitol Records, where I was honoured to be part of the new album of Alan Parsons Project, called `The Secret. I am also a member of La Jolla Symphony, working on my own chamber music projects etc. I can teach classical music as well as pop, jazz and improvisation using electric violin.
I think what makes me unique as a teacher is that I can teach different styles of music. For me there are no borders in playing instrument- it's up to you what you wanna achieve and do with your instrument . My second major is piano so if u want, I can teach piano and keyboards. With CMG Music Recording in Hollywood,which I am part of I filmed and recorded last Thursday a trailer for Super Bowl! You can spot my face for a few second!!
