Hello!

I have over 10 years of musical experience playing the violin, and other instruments. I also have over 3 years of experience working with children ages 4-12. I have the ability to work with all ages.

My interest is in the student. I am interested in tailoring lessons to the goals and desires of each student. I specialize in students starting out and getting their feet wet in the music world. I believe in setting goals and achieving them in a way that works best for my students.

About Chelsea

Welcome everyone! I have a few beliefs: I believe that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Whether it is violin, ukulele, piano, their voice, whatever! Music is a part of what makes us human, and is important for personal development. I believe that no one is "too old" to star

I have been with Alyssa for almost a year now. I have progressed so far. The classes are always fun and I feel like I gain something every time we meet. Though I am a ways from being proficient, I am quite pleased with the speed in which I am progressing. I am glad to have Aylssa as my instructor.
William
My first lesson was very good. She took the time to explain and we progressed at a good pace. She explained things and showed me proper techniques to hold the violin and the bow. Overall the lesson was fun and exciting.
Rachel
I started working with Alyssa in person when she was teaching violin in Salt Lake City. Once she moved to Los Angeles I agreed to try the online lessons. I have found this method of learning to be very valuable. Alyssa has a unique way of teaching. While the traditional principles of violin playing are taught Alyssa includes mindfulness and breath in her methods. She also introduces improvisation and takes music beyond its notes on the page.

I apply my teaching methods to develop and increase control of muscular and mental functions, accuracy, precision, discipline, mental awareness and overall coordination in violin performance. I am eager to share my knowledge and experience in sports psychology and to emphasize the general psychological benefits and contribution to human enrichment.

I started learning violin from Dr. Dimitry 1 month ago because, unlike other teachers, I found Dr. Dimitry very honest in specifying the subtleties and nuances, especially the snaggy ones which make the violin one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Although his classes were very expensive, I chose him as he was a straightforward and experienced violinist and I never compromise on the quality of teaching. Also, being a doctoral student myself, I know what it means to earn a Ph.D. and that too in music.

Now, it has been one month, and I enjoy his classes. His analogies and examples are an apt way of understanding the techniques of playing the violin. Though Dr. Dimitry is an advanced violinist, he is very patient with absolute beginners. To sum up, I would highly recommend him to people who are very serious and determined to learn and practice the violin.
Sharon
A true professional and a great teacher! I have been taking violin lessons now for 6 months with Dr. Dimitri Olevsky, having switched to Dimitri after having had a mediocre experience with my previous teacher. Wow…what a difference. Dimitri ably blends his extensive knowledge, talent, and seriousness about his craft with a witty sense of humor. He is able to simplify the complexities of violin technique so that it is truly feels accessible. Highly recommended.
Alexander
Dr. Olevsky was immediately able to improve my playing with direct, practical advice. He is concerned with efficient practice and in making the maximum amount of progress in the time that one has. He is highly knowledgable about the audition process and the real day to day of being a professional performing violinist. I have been playing for 15+ years and find Dimitry's lessons very challenging and stimulating.

Hi, I'm Brianna! Whether you're completely new to music or have taken lessons for years, I'd love to help you meet your goals as a violinist and musician.

I've been studying violin and composing for 18 years and specialize in classical music, but my musical background is diverse. I’ve performed as an orchestral and chamber violinist, written and performed for film scores, played for musicals, opera, and ballet, and recorded for singer/songwriters.

My teaching approach is tailored to the needs of each student and I’ve worked with violinists of all ages. I especially love working with adult students – it’s never too late to try something you’ve always wanted to learn!

Whatever you’re hoping to gain from lessons, I would love to hear about your goals and start learning together!

Brianna is amazing! I played violin when I was a kid but stopped for almost a decade before deciding to pick it up again. I looked up online and found Brianna on takelessons. I've just had my fifth violin lesson with her. She's patient, knowledgeable, and all-around a lovely person. She helped me come back to violin so fast. I enjoyed every lesson with her. Highly recommend! You'll be fortunate to have Brianna as your teacher.

Highly recommended! The most insightful and kind teacher. I had learned so much from him and dramatically improved every aspect of my violin playing. I was very fortunate to have learned from him.
Drew Y.
I was a student for over six years of Dr Chin Kim, from pre-college into my undergraduate studies. His encyclopedic knowledge of violin technique, repertoire, and history of the craft is unparalleled and still enamors me to this day. He is a masterful pedagogue who can offer students of the violin at all levels-even full professionals-access to unprecedented knowledge and understanding. I have since risen to be one of those professional products of Dr Kim’s teaching myself, with a graduate degree from the Shepherd School of Music followed by a tenure in the concertmaster pool at The Orchestra Now from 2016-2019-and I attribute much of this success to the knowledge and attention given by Dr Kim.
Corinne
Dr. Kim helped me build the foundation to my violin playing. As a young learner at 8 years old, he shaped my technique and provided me with the guidance that helped me become the violinist I am today. I studied with Dr. Kim for 10 years up until I went to college, where I am earning a degree in music. I can attribute this privilege to Dr. Kim for pushing me to grow and for teaching me so much during my early years.

I love playing and teaching the violin, and I'm so excited to share my experience with you! I have over a decade of experience with students of all backgrounds and experience levels. My time at The Juilliard School has prepared me well for whatever challenge you would like to take on together. Whether that is growing your love of the instrument, learning a new piece, finding better practice skills, or audition preparation.

Congratulations on taking an amazing first step into learning the violin, and I look forward to meeting you in our first lesson.

"My daughter age 13 has been playing violin in the school's orchestra. I did not see much progress until we signed her up for lesson about 2 years ago. My daughter has been working well with Jessica. She has her good days and bad days about making a commitment to practice. I have seen some progress she is playing 1st violin at school and has actually started practicing the music on her own. She has her good days and bad days about practicing. Jessica has encouraged her a lot she seems to understand my daughters point of view on music and I value Jessica's opinion."

"Thanks to Jacqueline, I have been able to pick up the violin again (after not playing for many years) and build back my technique reasonably quickly. She has an expansive library of musical exercises and songs that are perfect for making your practicing more efficient and your playing sound better. Over the last two years I’ve started to see her as less of a violin teacher and more of a violin guru. I high recommend her to any new/old violin student."

How to Improve Your Musicality

Just What is Musicality, Anyway? Musicality is defined in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as “the quality of being musical.” What does that mean, though? Is there a method to defining what is musical versus what is not? One can instinctively hear when a phrase sounds natural, beautiful, convincing -  musical - versus when it is not. Phrasing, much like public speaking, can be made more or less convincing depending on the manner with which you deliver a phrase. Quantz, the famous …

What Is Violin Purfling? & Other Violin Parts You Didn't Know About?

I’m sure we are all familiar with the basic look, shape and sound of the violin. After all, violins have been around for over 400 years, and you simply make beautiful music by drawing the bow over the strings and moving your fingers! Right? Well, if only it were that simple.  When I meet a new, beginner student for the first time, I always introduce them to the “anatomy” of the violin. There are actually many components that go into the making of a violin, and each one plays an imp …
