About Grace Y.

Close
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.

At the first lesson, Grace took the time to understand my musical goals then made a solid assessment of my current level of playing. She was able to identify small changes in my technique/form and crafted modifications in my warmup to support the change in technique.

I feel Grace is a great teacher for my eight year old daughter. This is my daughters first time playing an instrument. Grace is so patient and respectful to my daughter. Grace is teaching us a little at a time which I believe is a good pace for us. I have had to learn as well so I can assist my daughter in her practice at home. This part I didn't expect but Grace offers guidance. I feel through Graces lessons she not only is learning how to play the violin but learning self discipline and respect.

Nikita immediately focused on the areas where my daughter needed improvement and helped her take her playing to the next level. The improvement in just a few lessons was very noticeable. He is patient and thorough and uses the time efficiently. I was surprised at how well an online lesson could work. We are going to continue with more lessons with Nikita.

My son had been taken lessons from Nikita for a month now. I can see that the lessons have made a huge difference in his playing. He now has better sounds and postures, and his confidence with the instrument has also gone up quite a bit.

Nikita is an intelligent teacher. He doesn't emphasize on what to play, instead, he focus on how to play. He corrects wrong techniques consistently, and gives helpful drill assignments to practice at home. We are extremely happy with his teaching.

Ms.Krisztina is a joy to work with. My girls started with her at 5 & 6 and she worked so well with them. She has kept their interest since and has introduced new concepts in a way that isn’t overwhelming, but enjoyable and fun. She has a lot of patience with them and has a skill for drawing their attention to the violin & music.

I would highly recommend Krisztina. She truly likes teaching violin. She goes beyond the call of duty. For example, she sends emails with her or other musician videos for practice at home, works over the allotted time if needed and if she is able to, sends texts and responds promptly.
My daughter was beginning to say she was getting less interested in violin and before I could say anything, Krisztina made my daughter excited about it again with new things to learn.
There is nothing negative to say. She is an excellent teacher.

I highly recommend Grace. When i was younger, I mastered a variety of musical instruments and played well into college. Learning the violin has always been elusive. I’ve had many teachers but now i’ve been progressing farther than before. I credit this to Grace. She has a well thought out lesson plan that challenges me while concentrating on the fundamentals and techniques. Some teachers are more forgiving on technique reasoning that it can be corrected at a later date. It’s best to learn it correctly at the beginning.
She is patient and communicates clearly. I enjoy her proper demonstrations. Her enthusiam is infectuous and her passion shines through.
She also teaches my 80 year old mother. It has always been somthing she’s always wanted to learn. It is not easy to teach anyone the violin, let alone an 80 year old. Her lesson plan and approach is quite different to mine but very effective. My mother is progressing well.
Among her teaching aids, she employs a traditional strings book, i find this comforting as it provides a familiar take and consistency. Before moving on, she checks and ensures proficiency and mastery of the previous lessons. Again, reinforcing the fundamentals and building on top of them.
Understandably, the price per lesson is a factor. I find Grace’s rates to be fair and of great value. If you really want to learn and have the violin be a part of your life, hire Grace because of her approach and skill and not based on pricing.
Without knowing much of what to look for in a teacher, i now know its; enthusiam, patience, undertanding, a well defined lesson plan, mastery of skills before moving forward, consistency, open communication and lastly, not taking excuses for sloppiness due to lack of practice. (She will encourage you to practice and you’ll get better which in-turn motivates you). She will not just let you get by but help you master the violin.

New York, NY

Violin lessons will focus on technique and fundamentals in the context of the repertoire you are learning! You can expect to receive clear practice goals and I encourage a communicative dynamic among teacher and student.

About Patti
I am a professional violinist and violist based in New York City. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Violin Performance from New York University (with a minor in mathematics!) in 2010 and 2012, and am currently working on my Ph.D in Violin Performance at NYU.

As a teacher, I have taught students of all ages and levels of experience, ranging from beginner students to professional practitioners. I currently teach violin at Western Connecticut State University and New York University, and also maintain a private studio in the tristate area.

I believe that every student is different in how they progress and have a flexible approach to teaching, but do believe that awareness of technique and fundamentals is the key to progress. While working with me, students can expect clear guidelines regarding practice goals for a week,
and a communicative relationship between student and teacher. In an ideal teacher-student relationship, the student should always feel free to express to me if an approach is not working for them, or if they do not understand a concept explained in lessons! I am also willing to work with students regarding repertoire, and have experience with working with differently abled students.

As a performer, I make a point of engaging with a variety of classical and non-classical genres, including rock, pop, and jazz music. I currently play with an indie rock band called OWEL, and have also performed with contemporary music groups Alarm Will Sound, Argento New Music Project, ensemble mise-en, ETHEL, Hotel Elefant, Newspeak, Signal, The Wordless Music Orchestra, with the avant-rock Burning City Orchestra led by Noam Faingold, metal string quartet seven)suns, and the disco band Escort. I have also played in the company of a variety of artists spanning many genres, including Icelandic singer Björk, avant-jazz-funk band Medeski, Martin and Wood, Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead, the band Goldfrapp, Icelandic electronic artist Valgeir Sigurdsson, John Cale from the Velvet Underground, rock band Deep Purple, and Afro-Peruvian singer Eva Ayllón, in a variety of concert halls, bars, and living rooms, including Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Recital Center, Muziekgebouw a’ant Ij in Amsterdam, the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Merkin Hall, Roulette, Issue Project Room, Galapagos, Symphony Space, and Death by Audio.

Viva Aviva!

I am an adult student that is new to the violin but I do play a number of other instruments.

Aviva is an exceptional instructor. So patient and so proficient. Aviava seems to have an innnate ability to know just when to be "picky" and when to perhaps "let a few mistakes" slide. The result . . . I am making consistent progress and know exactly where to focus my time and attention.

Aviva is a gentle but effective motivator and, as such, I alway look so forward to my weekly lesson - and I am definately inclined to work hard so as to try to "please" my teacher.

I have become all but obsessed with all things violin, and much of that is directly attributable to this delightful and talented maestro!

Please do not hesitate to work with her. I can absolutely promise you that you will be glad you did.
