I had the pleasure of watching Derick perform at Studio 630. The performance was amazing! He played a variety of songs, that I never knew could be so clearly recognized being played on the violin. He is such a poised young man!

Everyone has the ability to learn. Do not let someone tell you different. It is either the wrong
teacher or wrong method for you if you are having difficulty. It is never the student.
I use many combined methods to fit the individual student according to their skill level, desires and overcoming any difficulties.

In addition to piano, I also teach keyboard, organ, improve, stand-up comedy, recording, voice, guitar, harmonica, public speaking, children's etiquette and ballroom dance ( won grand nationals in tango ).

They need to have an instrument at home.

352564_zhxv7qmpkjvktvg6yfzd
Portland, OR
View Full Profile

Before switching to primarily playing viola, I trained and performed as a violinist for ten years and graduated from the Suzuki Violin Method. I now play violin as my secondary instrument.

My teaching style is inspired by my initial training in the Suzuki method, and my studies with violist and pedagogue Karen Ritscher at Oberlin Conservatory. Please note, I have not yet received training as a Suzuki teacher and use the Suzuki method books and the teaching I received as a Suzuki student as a jumping off point for working on each student's individual needs.

About Grace
I studied viola at Oberlin Conservatory of Music and moved to Portland three years ago to pursue performance and teaching opportunities. Since then I have performed with Classical Revolution PDX, Cascadia Composers and ARCO PDX and am a member of Macaulay Balkan.

My initial studies were on violin using the Suzuki method, which has greatly influenced my teaching approach. However, I am dedicated to customizing the lesson time and structure to the needs and priorities of my students.

*** Specialties ***
Very few "viola teachers" play viola as their primary instrument. As a full-time violist, I can help you learn how to play this idiosyncratic instrument from my own experience.

Grace is excellent! I feel extremely lucky to have her as my violin teacher. I was playing better after just one lesson with her.

Before I found her, I had been turned down by several other teachers on this site because I wanted to learn how to play the violin without having to learn to read music. When I saw Grace's video, I thought surely she would turn me down too, because she's an even better player than the teachers who had said no. I was very surprised and excited when she agreed to teach me. She saw no problem with giving me lessons without reading, which means that not only is she a better musician than the others, but obviously she's a better and more versatile instructor, too.

Like I said, I feel very fortunate. And, as good as she is, I would have expected to pay a lot more for her. I actually WOULD pay more. She'd be worth it! I've looked at dozens of other teachers on this site .. Trust me, she's the best.

· Banjo · In studio
I went into banjo lessons not knowing if I could master the instrument or not, being nearly 70 years old. While by no means a master (and never going to be), I have learned so much from Sam and he has shown such patience with me. I often leave my lessons wondering how he ever puts up with me - but he does. His encourgement, laid-back style, expertise and knowledge of music (plus theory) and the banjo is impressive. His good nature makes my lessons so much more pleasant. I would say Sam is a a great teacher for both a beginner or an accomplished musician or in between. He likes to talk and demonstrate (nice and slowly if requested) so I would recommend hour-long lessons at first.

I have a big experience teaching students all levels and ages. My goal is to keep the joy of music making for each and every student, but also to make sure you learn and advance after each lesson. I would happily work with you on the music you want combining it with the specific violin techniques you need to have in order to play the instrument well.

About Kseniya
I have been teaching privately all levels ,from young children to beginner adults, for 10 years. Also, I teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.

Alexandria, VA
View Full Profile

Experienced teacher of 10 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate violin student! All ages and disabilities are welcome to take lessons. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I can teach all types of different genres, help students prepare for college auditions, and help with competitions and youth orchestra auditions. Let's get started!

About Tia
I started the violin when I was 8 years old at my hometown elementary school. I grew up in a very artsy town, which provided me the opportunities to learn music from around the world. These are a few reason why I love to collaborate with other musicians, create youtube videos, play different genres and mixes of various genres, writing my own pieces, traveling, and teaching others the love of music.

As I live in the Washington D.C. Metro area, scheduling/travel is flexible for me and easy to coordinate around my students' schedules. If there is a preferred lesson for your child not listed as "available" please feel free to inquire directly - we will find a time that works!

Violin students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every student learns uniquely; I teach students mindfulness and correct instrument techniques,
and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach beginner piano students of all different ages. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

My passion is music and I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style when learning an instrument. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
