About Morgana D.

Hi everyone! I'm Morgana. I am a violin, creative writing and finance instructor here on Take Lessons. I offer both group and private lessons. Group classes are scheduled throughout the week and I am on a schedule as you go basis with private lessons. So, if you are a fellow philomath (lover of learning), I would love to see you in one of my classes.

In your lessons we can work on lyric writing, performance, music theory, finding your musical style, violin scales and bowing techniques, auditioning, reading sheet music, keeping your financials in order as a musician and so much more.

Below is a list of FAQs - if you have further questions beyond what is listed feel free to contact me through the Ask a Question feature on my profile.

Where can I take lessons from you?
Currently, I only teach online through the Take Lessons Platform. I do not offer classes on Zoom, Google Meets, in person or over the phone.

What will I learn in my lessons?

Private lessons are tailored to the individual. Depending on the subject we can work on a variety of exercises to help you achieve your goals.

What if I'm a beginner?
Not a problem. I teach beginning through intermediate levels.

Can I try the first class for free?
No, however you are welcome to join a group class which are more economical before booking private lessons.

A little more about me:
I am a lyricist, violinist, and former musical theater actress. Currently I am working on getting my original music produced and out on major streaming platforms. I learned violin when I was very young and set it aside because at the time the only options available to me were in a classical setting. During my break from music I pursued a career in business and finance. Now, 20 years later I am applying the skills I learned to help myself and others further their careers in the music industry. I have in addition re-sparked my love for violin and respect its versatility as a multigenre instrument, made to be interpreted individually, and expressed as uniquely as each player.
