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 ***
Electric violin
Classical solo
Orchestral audition prep

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.

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.

Teaching is one of my greatest joys! All ages are welcome to study with me. It is my calling to work with all students' experiences and goals, such as competing in conservatory auditions, playing your favorite songs, or having an interest in the instrument with a completely clean slate.

“Talent” is a widely misunderstood concept. As a teacher, I don't believe talent is born. Talent is an artful skill. This skill is made through practice: concentrated sessions of mindful repetition, silent awareness, and craft. Anyone can learn an instrument with the right mindset and the right instruction.

My lessons are designed to develop the musical potential that every student has by guiding students to produce their most beautiful sound and feel a balanced and natural comfort with their instrument. Students develop a thorough understanding of the relationship between anatomy and sound for optimum technique, and how to practice efficiently and independently. In other words, my students ...

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

About Hannah
I was introduced to the world of music at the age of four when my mother, an accomplished violinist, placed a violin in my hands. I have been playing the violin for 23 years and throughout those years developed an interest in pursuing many instruments in the string family. Teaching music is my passion and being able to share that passion with others is what makes my job truly rewarding. Through my years of teaching I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages and abilities. As a dedicated and experienced teacher I understand that every individual learns music differently. My teaching method is based on differentiated instruction. I enjoy discovering, creating and applying custom learning styles during the course of my private lessons. I believe communication is an essential skill when it comes to teaching not only to stude
nts but also parents.

When it comes to learning a new talent, I believe that patience and consistency is key. Before working with a new student or family, I find it important that we discuss the student's interests and goals for the instrument. From there, I determine a structured lesson plan based on the individual's needs and musical experience. I teach many different musical styles including classical, folk, bluegrass, celtic, pop, etc.

During the course of private music lessons my students will learn basic to advanced instrumental techniques, songs, scales, sight-reading, and basic music theory. I also prepare many of my students for musical examinations, auditions and live performances.

I am new to TakeLessons.com but have been teaching for many years. Here is what some people have had to say about me.

"Hannah was an absolute pleasure to work with. My son took violin lessons with her from 6th grade until his junior year. She is a wonderful teacher who is both knowledgeable and patient as well as having an excellent rapport with her students. I would highly recommend Hannah for any age group of student."
-Michelle A. March 6, 2018

"Hannah , does a great job teaching students of all ages. I am an adult student and have been taking violin lessons for 3 years. She challenges me and pushes for improvement. Hannah focuses on intonation and proper technique. The Suzuki method is taught along with a variety of other music genres - bluegrass, Christmas & popular. Have enjoyed taking lessons each week."

Mrs. F. aren't just sharing the love of music but she share love and care for my daughter. My daughter loves to go to her Violin lessons. She is very excited and happy every time she gets to learn with Hannah. She started to practice and work hard with Hannah's guidance since 2014. She enjoy learning process and I am so happy to see her progressing so well. Hannah's personality, high professional and communication very well with parents and she will come out of the room to greet & meet and talk to you before the lesson and after the lesson she will always give you an update about your child learning and what they're working on for the next level. Hannah is a very dedicated music teacher if you are looking to hire someone to teach your kids; look no further. Hannah is the one. She's very sweet, kind, care and very friendly. My daughter has improved so much since start learning with Hannah. She made it to become a Concert Master at Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra (GYSO) and also made it to Honor Orchestra 2016.

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!
