View Full Profile

All levels of students are welcome. I have over 42 years of experience to help you achieve your best. Specializing in Electric Violin

About Mark T
I have been playing since I was 4 years old and have been loving every minute of it. I have been fortunate to play and tour with many groups here in the US and in Europe. Over the years I have really enjoyed passing on my knowledge and love of music making to others. I would be honored if you gave me the opportunity to help your or your family achieve their musical dreams.

*** Lesson Details ***
First and foremost I am very laid back and that helps my students relax into the process of making great music. Expect your first lesson to be about getting to know each other and getting a firm idea of what your expectations are.

Everyone learns at a different pace and has changing interests. Within the framework of moving you towards your musical goals I create custom goals and lessons for my students.

What does that mean? Well, y
ou can pick out some of your own music, customize the way you practice, decide when you want to move forward with more challenging music and many other things.

I do expect my students to learn several pieces of music at a time and perform so you can share your music. That's what it is all about after all!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room with seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
None, all students require an instrument to practice on.

*** Specialties ***

Mark was an excellent teacher! I have never touched a violin before taking lessons with him and Mark, being a very patient and encouraging teacher, went through the basics and had me playing songs in just a few weeks! Mark made going to lessons fun and engaging and I enjoyed going to each and every lesson! If you are looking for fun lessons where you will learn a lot with a very talented, patient and encouraging teacher, then I highly recommend taking lessons with Mark!

Mark is a great teacher. I hadn’t played in over 35 years and he had me playing reasonably in no time. I loved how he was able to adjust to my skills and provide a personal program.

Atlanta, GA

I began playing violin in addition to viola in high school. I enjoy the faster response of the violin and the way its higher pitches can soar over the top of the other strings, though I still prefer to play the 'inner' parts in an ensemble.

About Joshua
*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public schools. I utilize methods of Kodaly (certified Level I) in creating a holistic approach to teaching music and use the songs and progression of the Suzuki School for beginners. I incorporate ear-training, music theory, and music history into learning about mus
ic in addition to the mechanics of playing a string instrument. My ultimate goal is to help each student become their own teacher!

***Special Needs***
I am more than happy to explore ways in which students with special needs can engage music through listening, reading, writing, singing and even playing an instrument...let's talk!!

Christine is great with my children. She helped my high-school student with his orchestra audition (with her coaching, he made it into the highest orchestra at his school). She also helped launch my middle school aged daughter as she started up with viola. Christine is terrific with communication, flexible when possible with scheduling, and is as friendly as a long lost auntie. Her teaching style is gentle and encouraging.

I began playing the violin in fourth grade and continued all the way through high school. I spent a lot of time learning the technique of solo playing as well as the balance necessary with the other instruments of the orchestra. I also spent two years in my high school’s chamber orchestra.

My studio is ideal for the study of violin because I can accompany my students on my grand piano.

About Ben
Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

In our first lesson, you will learn about the parts of your instrument, how to care for it, and how to hold it. You will even learn some notes and begin reading music! By the end of your first package of lessons, you will be able to play with lovely tone, using the bow as well as plucking, and will have a handful of simple songs under your belt.

Students describe me as patient, fun, and encouraging! As your teacher, you can expect me to work with you from where you are, and with subjects and curriculum that match what you are interested in learning. I teach traditional classical, using either Suzuki or Essential Elements, depending on your learning and self-motivational needs, and I also teach fiddle music, including Celtic, old-time, bluegrass, and alternative styles. *Please check my availability before signing up, as my time slots are quickly filling up!* I look forward to meeting you! Call Take Lessons today to sign up!

About Rachel
I have played and studied music for 30 years, performing internationally and appearing with groups on local and national radio and television, and have had the good fortune to share the stage and even record with some very talented individuals!

As for teaching, I've taught hundreds of students over almost 20 years, and over that time, I can say I've learned that what can make or break a student's success is whether or not they enjoy their teacher and the work they are doing.

I love helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing. I've been described by students as encouraging and fun, and my teaching style is warm, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, PTSD, and just plain ol' stage
fright! I work with you to play the music you enjoy and set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... It's what I love about what I do.

I began my violin studies at age 9, with my public school string program. I continued through high school and into college, playing and singing with auditioned district ensembles, school musicals, and chamber choirs, coming in as runner up in my high school's concerto competition, landing a full-tuition scholarship, and performing twice in Carnegie Hall. I studied opera, vocal pedagogy, and passed my piano proficiency exam from the advanced class.

In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and soon after, joined the Kansas City-based Celtic folk group, Tullamore. I have enjoyed 13 seasons with this lauded regional group, playing countless esteemed Celtic festivals across the country and embarking on five international tours of Ireland and Scotland, as well as a Caribbean cruise hosted for our fans. Our sixth international tour is scheduled for 2019 in Scotland.

In 2014, I relocated to Hampton, Virginia, where I auditioned for the Hampton Roads Philharmonic, and currently play as a first violinist.

From 2015-2018, I had the joy of fiddling and singing with Brackish Water Jamboree, an award-winning Americana band, featured on NPR's Blue Plate Special and Out of the Box series with Paul Shugrue, and host of the NorFOLK Festival.

Throughout this time, I have enjoyed teaching a full and enriching music studio of students: hosting recitals, open mics, and ensemble rehearsals, and watching students achieve goals they didn't know were even possible. I continue to teach online via Skype, Zoom, and TakeLessons Classroom, and I look forward to working with you to accomplish your own musical aspirations!

About David
I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities by members of their respective orchestras. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts. I continued theory lessons while in Boston at the New England Conservatory of Music. I attended Summer music programs at Apple Hill (New Hampshire) and Sewanee (Tennessee) and have extensive experience in orchestra, quartet, and chamber group environments.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist, violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach
Mice is also popular on the festival circuit on the Emerald Coast.

I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013, and currently perform weddings, and at various restaurants and events in the Atlanta area.

I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you fulfill your musical goals and ambitions. Happy Playing - Cheers! dp

Teaching professionally for over 10 years, Brian was ranked the #1 violinist in Georgia in 2013. He has performed solos with prestigious clinics around the world and as concertmaster for various orchestras in Atlanta. He strives to provide as much value in each and every lesson (and often goes over the allotted time for free).

About Brian
I am a professional Violinist with over 10 years in teaching experience. One of my greatest joys these days is the time I spend with my students. At a young age I fell in love with the violin and started practicing 5-6 hours daily, and to this day I have stopped. That love is a big part of the reason why I can teach the intricate details that go in to playing an instrument and how to progress quickly. Feel free to contact me!

I’ve been a violinist since age 9. I have taught private violin lessons to both girls and boys at Nardin Academy Elementary (ages 4 to 12) for over 3 years —and enjoyed it thouroughlly! I welcome all beginners who are looking to understand the basics, and intermediate level students who are looking to get more out of playing the violin. We will work toward playing a full song and, then, go on to another one! The student gets to pick which song they would like to learn out of my own choices— which are particular to the students’ level, after my personal assessment (assessment time: one lesson). Let’s enjoy playing the violin!

About Liana
Classically trained violinist since age 9, I currently teach private violin lessons from my home. I graduated from Clarence High School with fond memories of violin, the orchestra, and music.

I have auditioned for and was accepted into the 2005 NYSSMA All State Orchestra and 2005 NYSSMA All State Chorus.

As a professional violin teacher, my students enjoy the music and the learning process just as much as I did growing up. My teachers have put much into me at school and I want to take the opportunity to give back, and put into our youth the same techniques and motivation for playing violin as I learned.

I strive to let them play as much as possible rather than talking their ear off. I teach what I was taught and more , more of what I’ve learned through the years of practicing in my room at home. I love to see my students’ faces
when learning something new just clicks for them — it makes me work even harder to see their success in that technique or song they are working on. Practice doesn’t come easy and I like to assure my students with helpful reasons AND ways to practice at home. Because practice makes perfect.
