I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

Being able to create music is an integral part of the human condition as it helps us express and understand an exceedingly wide range of human emotion. Teaching how to do it has therefore always been my greatest passion and having been privileged with the guidance of great pedagogues in the past, it is my ambition to pass that invaluable knowledge and skill on to aspiring musicians. I am certain that every person (no matter what age) has vast potential and it is my duty as a teacher to extract those talents and nurture creativity. Guiding students to find a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship to music will encourage them to not only be exceptional artists, but also human beings. It is essential to cater to each student individually helping each one find the right practice strategies, technical studies, repertoire, and most importantly, their own musical identity. My goal is not simply to develop skill, but to teach students how to teach themselves, find their ...

After reading through a large number of teacher profiles, something about Vera's background, experience, and teaching philosophy made me decide to reach out for lessons, and I am extremely happy that I did, as I look forward to each lesson.

Vera has been absolutely great to work with, and if you are looking for a teacher who will challenge you, and be tough and direct when necessary, but also offer empathy and support to help you grow and learn to the best of your ability, then I highly recommend Vera.
Ramon Kelly
Excellent first lesson. I learned some important basics to get me started and I am looking forward to my next lesson.

Michael
My high school daughter has received trumpet lessons from Jonathan for over a year. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. As a school teacher, he knows how to work with kids in a way that gives him an advantage over a non-teacher performing artist. We've done lessons both in person and online. I'd highly recommend Jonathan to any parent looking to have their middle school/high school student take private lessons.

Jonathan is very patient with my kid and made the first lesson fun.

Have you or your child wanted to learn to play the violin but didn't know where to start? You've found the right place. I have been playing violin since 1995, and been teaching private lessons in the upstate since 2014. I specialize in teaching beginner/intermediate violin students from young children to seasoned adults. What I love about teaching is the "light bulb" moment, where they understand something new and overcome a new challenge.

It's never too late to start.

About Tamara

My music journey began when I was four years old. I was sitting in daycare doing show and tell when my friend came in to show us her new violin. I was captivated by it, asking my friend lots of questions before going home and asked my mother for lessons. Over 20 years later, I still love the violin

I believe that learning to play music is not just to attain mastery or even to become a professional in the craft. Instead, playing music can be a journey in learning to express emotion, experience beauty, and cultivate virtue, diligence and character. And these things, once cultivated, can’t help but take root and grow – dancing in and out of the notes they play and spilling into all areas of their lives.

I believe that teaching is not just about instruction, but about mentorship. Not just transferring information, but building relationship. Together as parent and teacher we will partner to instill passion and joy for learning within your child.

About Joy

When I was a little girl… Music was the language of my home. I learned to sing before I could speak and understood sound and rhythm through the clanking keys of the piano. Violin quickly made its entrance and carried me through college, launching me into a career in music & education. I kep
