Learning an instrument is no easy feat, but having the right plan, structure, and support makes all the difference. My teaching philosophy is designed to meet each student where they are, with a custom approach tailored to their individual needs.

I take time to get to know my students - how they practice, why they pursue their instrument, what their goals are, and who they really are as people. What is it that they truly need right now? Is it a practice schedule, or just some gentle encouragement? A new song to freshen things up, or a tough lesson about persistence? A conversation about homework, or a story to lighten the mood and bring some laughter into the music? As an experienced teacher, I know how big of a difference it makes to really understand the needs of a student.

I work with beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of all ages. I have experience with all major string curricula, as well as my own conservatory-trained approach. I have taught over 100 students in ...

I want to serve as a supportive and instructional figure that helps cultivate an appreciation of music for all students. In order to do this, I believe it's important to prioritize personal student progress rather than subscribe to a fixed game plan. That being said I take on a relaxed adaptive teaching style that tailors to the student. It's my hope that all students feel comfortable working and discussing music topics with me as I believe thoughtful conversations, whether straightforward or abstract, is an essential learning technique.

I am a classically trained violist and string instrument enthusiast, born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I attended and graduated from Western Michigan University with a BM in music performance and have since worked as a music teacher in San Diego. I am the strings director at Double Peak Scho

I have been teaching violin lessons for 36 years after graduating from Kherson music college in Ukraine. I was trained in traditional method with a focused approach to posture, detailed technique and bow distribution, which all together creates a beautiful sound.
Because of this approach many of my students have received music scholarships.
I love what I do and my students stay with me for many years because they see the value in learning from me.

Ginger
Both my daughters loved violin with Marina (8 years of lessons)! She is patient with beginners and inspiring with advanced students.
Makell
I have been playing the violin for 9 years, and 3 of those years Marina Hallows was my teacher. In those years she has taught me more than previous teachers. She possesses many good qualities for teaching, I especially like her way about technique. Since applying her method I've improved dramatically, and do not regret taking lessons from her. Because of Marina, my playing is much more advanced.
Katelin
I have played violin for 16 years, and took lessons from Marina for about 3 of them. I learned more in those 3 years about posture, technique, position, intonation, etc. than I ever did before then. She is very particular to detail and requires you to do your best whether in person or online. I was challenged to exceed and grow far beyond the things I had previously learned, and began to be quite advanced in my playing thanks to Marina's teachings.

Online Violin Teacher

Senior Music Education Major with 2+ years of teaching experience and a member of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra. A violinist and vocalist with 11+ years of experience, and 2+ years of viola and piano experience. I believe that music is an experience that is felt and understood differently among each person and because of this, all lessons are customized according to the interests, needs, and goals of each student. My students will develop a solid foundation of music theory, aural skills, and sight-reading that will prove to be extremely beneficial in their musical studies. My greatest desire is to help all of my students to achieve their greatest musical potential and to grow in their appreciation of the beauty of music.

"Anna is skilled at both her art and her instruction. Right away she helped fix my posture, which has been a problem since I started violin four years ago. She is patient when I have difficulty sight-reading, play out of tune, and even when she knows I haven't practiced enough. Anna is also super punctual yet flexible with rescheduling. I really recommend Anna whether you are a dedicated musician or just want to keep a little music in your life."

"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 came to Mark as a senior in high school. I had been playing in orchestras for 7 years up until this point and wanted to see if I could refine my technique before heading into college. Even in my limited time with him, Mark helped me fix most if not all of my bad habits and gave me valuable knowledge to continue learning on my own! He was very friendly throughout the whole experience and was flexible with my busy schedule."
