Very knowledgeable and patient. I am learning violin for the first time, and she takes the time to help with proper posture and positioning and technique.
Xuejun S.
Very patient and professional

Jessie is very patient, professional, flexible. I'm a college student and busy with school work, but I still learned a lot from her, not only in violin skills, but also music theory and so on. She also teaches me how to practice instead of just showing me the pieces.

Gives you confidence in your own abilities

Jessie taught my daughter from June 2011-Dec 2012. She has been an excellent teacher for my 4 year old. It is really a challenge to keep kids focused at this age and Jessie was always up for the challenge. She simplified things down to really basic tasks that the kids can do and more importantly enjoy the learning experience.

During the period our little girl developed the confidence to play in front of a large audience. She could compose her own variations and play it with authority.

Jessie was always on time and professional with her approach. She always brought prints for parents to follow through on the lessons. It made practices at home really simple for us. We could see progress in our daughter's abilities every week.

We felt sorry that we could not continue on with her because of us relocating to a different city and her move as well. I would greatly recommend her for your violin lessons.

Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

Online Violin Teacher

For the dedicated, adventurous, and creative student.

I create a space for the intelligent and inquisitive to explore what is possible through music, using the violin and other instruments or the process of music production as an opportunity to develop their personal voice.

You can learn and master an instrument, and I will help you do that, but there's more to it than that.

You can create music in a way that makes your life better. Through mastery of an instrument, or the skills of music production, you can see the world through a more colorful lens.

I teach violin, piano, voice, music production, composition, and songwriting.

About Josh

Short version: I grew up in Florida, where I spent my time water gardening, woodcarving, playing the violin, and slaying giant sea monsters in the Gulf of Mexico. I’ve composed film scores, arranged string quartets, and recorded/produced everything from rock bands to madrigalian choirs. I played

Josh is not your average music instructor! He has a way of using songs and methods that will reach each individual student to provide a great learning environment. My daughter has learned a lot!
Raul
I’ve had the privilege of taking some minor violin lessons as well as some piano lessons from Josh, and even had the pleasure of having him on my 3rd album as a collaborator. As an instructor, he was able to explain these new musical instrument endeavors for me, and remind me of the the thrill of overcoming a hurdle when it comes to composing and teaching yourself. I’ve been playing guitar for about 17 years now, so that hurdle was many years ago. I highly recommend Josh for instruction at all age and experience levels.
Steve
Josh is a talented musician, great communicator, and patient teacher. He has a unique was of combining movement and body control into his teaching of music to create a wholistic practice. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn music.

"I'm an older, experienced player that has had some specific problems after returning to violin after a long hiatus. I was concerned most with my vibrato and a bouncing bow. Kendra zeroed right in on those problems and they were resolved in just three lessons. Kendra is patient, knowledgeable and perfect for an adult player at any level. I imagine she is fantastic with younger players, as well."

"I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin."

"He is very patient and has excellent communication skills. I have no knowledge of how to play the violin or music of any kind. After my first lesson I strongly feel he will be my private instructor for many years to come. I left with proper technique of how this instrument is to be cared for and good posture when practicing. He also informed me of the books we will be incorporating into my lessons. Most importantly homework is given and he is very patient and explains everything at your level."
