Mark L. Las Vegas, NV

You will be guided by me through method books and also use supplemental materials I create to help you advance. You will learn the basic 5 positions of the instrument to increase your sounding range. You will learn orchestra skills including following a conductor and articulation and intonation, styles of expression, and rhythm. I have been teaching violin for 7 years. My students have won seats in school orchestras and spots in various music schools. I want to be your next instructor.

About Mark

I teach according to your individual needs. I help you become successful on piano, violin, viola, bass, guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and skills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing

Bruce S. Boulder City, NV

I teach beginning and intermediate violin. I use a great method book if the student needs one I can supply one. I teach both young people and adults. I use music that
has a play-along CD. Every one loves this type of learning method.

About Bruce

I received my degree from the University of Utah in instrumental music education. Along with specialized training in band and orchestra instruments, I also offer lessons in guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica in playing and performance. When a student has a song they want to learn, I focus lessons around the requested song. I also have an extensive library of songs that I utilize. My music methodology is built around a song book that also has a CD attached. This has proven to be a lot of fun for all my students. It makes practice time more fun as they "play along" with the CD. *** Lesson Details *** With folk instruments I start by teaching the student basic chords and basic chord sequences. In the beginning I stress the proper hand position and I spend some time perfecting the ...

My 11 year-old daughter has been taking lessons for about one year. She enjoys her lessons and always looks forward to the next one.

Bruce is a skilled musician who's not only encouraging of her development, but also very patient and indulgent with her whimsical personality. Bruce's wife, Diane, always has a treat (many homemade) available after each lesson.

I highly recommend his services.

Bruce is Great. I am older and had never played before. Within a couple of lessons, Bruce had me playing a song. He is very patient with a style that makes learning easy. I would highly recommend Bruce to anyone.

Bruce Rocks!

Bruce is a Folk Guitarist with a wide variety of instruments and skills. His focus is on folk music as this is music that you already know and know how it should sound. His primary instruments appear to be a 12 string acoustic, banjo, and 6 string acoustic, and electric. Frankly, the man is very talented, very patient, and has an excellent plan for both beginners and experts. He not only provides the correct form, but the reason why. His wife is very supportive and offers treats. A really nice touch, and a really nice couple.

OK. So Yunior was recommended to me by a friend who after having 2 previous violin teachers, couldn't play anything if his life depended on it. A month after he started his lessons with Yunior he was doing things his previous teachers couldn't get him to do. I decided to give him a try and can't be more happy to write this review.....

#1, this guy is a miracle worker. You can walk into a lesson sounding terribly (I'm very guilty of that), but by the time you walk out he's fixed all your problems. The best part of it all is how he teaches you to TEACH YOURSELF and how to practice at home.

#2, he can actually play his instrument. Why do I say that? Well, my previous teacher could play but it was nothing like listening to Yunior. He demonstrates and everything just sounds so perfect and effortless. It makes you want to work hard and play just like him.

#3, he's a cool guy with a great sense of humor. He likes to talk but fixing things is his thing. And I always ask him to play something for me at the end of each lesson and I'm just left in awe. I highly recommend him!
Sarah E. Las Vegas, NV

I began violin at age 10, and began teaching violin in my first year of study at music school.

My training in violin and viola comes from distinguished performers in the classical music community. I have studied with Nicholas Cords (of Brooklyn Rider), Lawrence Dutton (of the Emerson String Quartet), Karen Ritscher, Brett Deubner, and Nancy Buck. My teachers have been taught by some of the most eminent string pedagogues of their generation, including Dorothy Delay, Karen Tuttle, Lilian Fuchs, Harvey Shapiro, and Heidi Castleman. This broad survey of teaching styles and philosophies gives me a great breadth of knowledge which I apply to all of my students.

Whether it be beginners, who are just learning the basics of sound production and proper posture, or advanced students, who are preparing for solo competitions or orchestral and chamber performances, my students will feel empowered and strengthened by their studies with me.

I hold the same approach for all my students at ...

About Sarah

Hi, my name is Sarah and I would love to teach you to become a better musician. I began teaching at the Nevada Blind Children's Foundation as a piano instructor in my senior year of high school. Since then, I have taught as a music teaching assistant at Stony Brook University and a violin, viola, and cello teacher at Music & Arts in Mount Sinai. I aim to teach my students more than just the basics. My students should expect to master: how to play their instrument most efficiently, body awareness, relaxed and proper posture, musicality and thoughtful phrasing, some aspects of music theory and ear training, stage presence, and more. Most importantly, I will help my students grow more confident in their musical abilities. My goal is to help nurture my students' musical talents and ...

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs
Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly
Beginner Basics: How to Read Violin Sheet Music
The most valuable skill you can develop as a musician is learning to read music. While it’s possible to learn to play “by ear,” reading music opens up the world to you as an artist! There are many different ways to write music. Guitarists often read off of charts outlining the chord progressions for the song. Drummers have a rhythm chart showing them what to play. As a violinist, however, you'll most likely be reading off of violin sheet music. Standard sheet music is filled with directions fo
