Private Violin Teacher

Teaching private and ensemble lessons for 10+ years has developed my knowledge of how to work with students to build excellent musicianship and fluid violin skills. Along with the technical aspects, students' enjoyment of the process is paramount. This is achieved through purposeful preparation for each new tier of achievement so that the learning unfolds naturally.

About Evelyn

My violin journey has included solo performances, orchestra, chamber ensemble, fiddle competitions, and even square dances. I love playing folk styles from near and far as well as music from the great composers. An active church musician, I share both formal service music and improvised accompanim

I enjoy having Evelyn as a violin instructor. She is very knowledgeable and expresses instruction in a concise and easy to understand way. She is very kind. I am an adult learner, and Evelyn is very understanding that sometimes practice time gets minimized due to life responsibilities. She is encouraging and I would recommend her as an instructor for any age.

Private Violin Teacher

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.

About Kristin

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 Schoo

Let's Play Music!
Many people think that learning an instrument is a long and grueling process that takes years before being any fun, but this couldn't be any farther from the truth!

Especially in this day and age with so many resources available, it does not have to take decades to reach a fun and satisfactory level of musicianship.

What you are looking for is someone who can teach you what YOU want to know.

My approach to music teaching is fully CUSTOMIZABLE.
Instead of following a strict curriculum, every lesson is tailored specifically to your goals and interests.

Not interested in reading notes? No problem.
Only want to cover your favorite pop songs? You got it.
Trying to write your own stuff? Let's focus there!

Whatever makes music fun for you, you can count on me to help you find less

First lesson and I've already learned how to teach myself one of my favorite songs (which I can now play a few hours after my lesson) and some helpful music theory!
Joy
My 16-year-old ---who had not practiced for over a year---is absolutely loving her lessons with Ms. Avenira! With only 3 lessons, I am now seeing the spark for playing the violin return to my daughter's eyes. Ms. Avenira is meeting my daughter "where she is" and truly customizing lessons to move her forward. She provides detailed updates for each lesson, and I could not be happier with my investment. Excellent teacher.
Michelle P.
Avenira really connected with my 14 year old, while our daughter has always been enthusiastic to learn an instrument, putting in the practice and the work has been a challenge in the past. Avenira's format, which allows flexibility for how the student learns best, is really working. My daughter has been practicing every night (unprompted by us), and is really excited abut her next lesson with Avenira. She also loves that she can learn both guitar and piano with Avenira, since she is interested in both. Avenira was very motivating, complimenting our daughter for being focused and for doing a great job during the lesson. Definitely would rate Avenira A+++++++!!

Private Violin Teacher

I teach violin and viola lessons to students of all ages (including adults!) and skill levels. Lessons will be catered to you, whether you want to start from the beginning with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or have a tune from the radio you've been wanting to learn. I believe learning to play an instrument is more than just learning notes and rhythms-- it's about developing yourself in all aspects of life. Here you can develop life skills including curiosity, dedication, responsibility, patience and so much more, all while having fun and enjoying yourself at the same time.

"Dustin Newbold has been my violin teacher for nearly eight years.
He is an accomplished musician and outstanding teacher, always patient, encouraging, and professional. He brought me through the very early stages of the violin as a beginner student, to now playing first violin in the community orchestra.
He has not only helped me become a better musician, but has been very knowledgeable in bringing me through the rough times of bowing, tuning, and even selecting the appropriate violin, strings, and accessories.
Dustin has the sensitivity to understand the student's level of ability and skill, and he creates a path for improvement. Lessons are always challenging and fun.
I highly recommend Dustin to any student who is serious about learning music, and especially to those to aim to be proficient on their instrument."

Introduction to Violin Music Notes

The violin is often considered by musicians to be one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Its roots trace back many centuries and it was clearly a definitive instrument in shaping classical music all over the world. One of the reasons it is considered a difficult instrument to learn is that it's a fretless string instrument, making violin music notes appear to be inexact, yet fingering must still be done with precision. The reward for learning this sweet-sounding elegant instrument, ho …
