I have been teaching individual and group lessons for 12+ years. Many of my students have won trophies at the Granquist music competition and also play in local youth orchestras. My own youth string ensemble plays publicly at many popular local venues several times a year. I enjoy exposing my students to the finer points of being a professional musician such as the camaraderie, team work, creativity (creating harmonies, tailoring arrangements to fit student’s level) and of course, stage presence. I am very proud of my students. It is so gratifying to see their confidence build with each new skill they master. *** Lesson Details *** My approach to teaching is to combine fundamentals with “adventure.” I encourage students to experiment with their instrument and have quite a few budding ...
The beauty of the violin comes with the knowledge that nothing is perfect, while the embrace of imperfection collides with the pursuit of our own ideal of perfect. The two create a contrast that challenges the mind and body to approximate with perfection. Constantly refining our ideals to new levels of what good sounds like to our own ear. A truly remarkable instrument that reflects the struggle between the heart and mind, but also the unparalleled awe when the two work together.

Hello, My name is David S. and I am 22 years old. Thank you for visiting my profile! I am originally from Aurora, IL but currently live in Chicago in the Buena Park area. I am a recent graduate of DePaul University where I received my Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. There I studied with Stephen Balderston, former assistant principal of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. I began my piano studies* in a Yamaha Piano studio at age five and continued private lessons for eight years. Then I shifted my attention to the cello, which I started in a public school when I was in fourth grade. I began my violin and viola studies in high school during a period I broke my wrist and couldn't hold my cello with a cast! *I attribute my versatility as a string player to my many years of piano
I have been instructing students from kindergarten to high-school all over Chicago area for the past thirteen years. My highest accomplishment is having a high-school sophomore student playing second chair first violin on Chamber Orchestra and third chair first violin in Symphonic Orchestra at Maine Township High School, Park Ridge, Illinois. Other accomplishments are having students prepared for Granquist Memorial Music Competition, Geneva Illinois. My lessons are always focused on adapting the violin practice to fit the character of the individual student. Besides learning good violin performance practices, the student will shape up character by developing specific neural pathways that will help in child development as well as overall cognitive activity. Learning to play violin ...
Students are taught the Suzuki method in combination with familiar contemporary music. As students develop the fundamental and technical skills in classical training, contemporary music may be simultaneously incorporated into lessons according to the student's interest.
Currently serving as a violin instructor at The Violin Center and Flatts & Sharpe Music for the last five years. I began studying the violin at age six in New York City, pursuing my training in classical music. Through meeting other musicians and first-hand exposure to music, many interests developed in exploring other genres of performance. Since my arrival to Chicago in 2008, I have been performing with various artists and musicians at numerous venues/events such as The Double Door, The Elbo Room, Schubas, Uncommon Ground, Red Kiva, Summerfest, Grant Park, The United Center, Wrigley Field. Hollywood & Blue Chip Casinos, Arcada Theater, Ballydoyle, and many more. ** Lesson Details *** Students are taught the Suzuki method in combination with familiar contemporary music. As ...
All levels of training, from beginner to professional players.
Thank you for considering me as a music teacher! I work with all ages, and design lesson plans based upon the student's proficiency and age. Drawing materials from standard teaching methods such as Leopard Mozart, Dalcroze Eurythmics (especially useful for younger students), and the Suziki Method, I develop a curriculum for each individual student. I work to build strong foundations in all aspects of music making, and extramusical character traits like focus, discipline, and fun! I like to involve parents of younger students as well to help with practice planning, to get to know each family and student's needs, and to illuminate the different aspects of learning I am working on, e.g. hand eye coordination, kinesthetic awareness, and the various and multiple techniques involved in ...
