Ladi S.

Jamaica, NY

I've been teaching and performing on Long Island and New York since 2008. I love teaching children. My teaching philosophy is to give ability to internalize basic rhythms and pulse to read-musical literacy, to perform with physical ease and technical efficiency, to hear the notes on the page, to work creatively-improvise compose, harmonize and play by ear, to understand basic elements of theory, form harmony, etc.; and perform comfortably individually and with others in a variety of settings.

Since 2013 I've adapted a student-oriented curriculum blending the principles of Suzuki Kodaly and Orff.

About Ladi

I provide basic violin set, music stand and learning materials. I always expect from students to be able to get their own instrument. Ladi S. (born on April 27, 1987) is a Czech/American violinist, DJ, performance artist and composer. Born into a musical family and a traditional culture teeming with music and dances, Ladi S., a Czech artist is taking his place on centerstage. He presents choreographed violin performances, live and in music found on his YouTube channel, which he introduced in 2006. He performs a variety of music styles, from classical music to trance. Since 2008, Ladi has released a self-titled album, an EP, and several singles. Aside from original work, his discography contains covers of songs by other musicians and various soundtracks. In 2008, Ladi moved to Long ...

Joanna M.

Brooklyn, NY

About Joanna

Music has the power to uncover the beauty all around us. It can strengthen our bonds with other people. It can raise us out of low, lost places. It can be a filter that brightens our view of our daily lives. Learning an instrument or any discipline brings to the learner opportunities for growth and improvement. It also provides a space for self-reflection. Rarely in our daily lives are we encouraged to face ourselves- to meet head on with our strengths and weaknesses. Learning any instrument can help reveal these things to us and allow us to address them in a more objective way. We can build discipline, develop problem-solving skills, and find confidence. If learned with the right approach, the instrument can be an external indicator of our internal growth. In addition to all ...

Fantastic teacher. Tons of positive energy and encouragement. Very willing to help me work on songs of my own choosing and able to figure them out in just a few minutes. With her we worked on country style fiddling.

Joanna is a very good violin instructor. She's very clear when she is teaching my daughter. Would very much recommend her to teach other students.

Nicholas P.

Brooklyn, NY

Fiddle lessons incorporate the same technical foundation as violin studies, with greater emphasis on improvisation, folk songs, and jazz scales.

About Nicholas

*Availability listed is for July/August 2015. Welcome! I am a full-time violin/viola teacher from New York and a registered member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I am an active performer of contemporary and classical music, and my commitment is to instill my students with both a passion for playing music and a strong technical foundation. My teaching method is tailored to each student's individual learning style and motivation for playing. The first question I will ask at every first lesson is: what music do you love? This can be one song - a nursery rhyme, classical melody, or popular song - or a genre of music. Regardless of age, I believe that the most effective path for learning violin or viola is to start with the music! For younger children, I suggest beginning

Nicholas has a unique way of teaching and the result so far has been fantastic. Cyrus respect him and gets motivated after each class to do better.

As helpful as they come, Nick has bent over backwards to make sure our 6-yr-old daughter was outfitted with the right violin and bow. As an absolute beginner when she began a couple of months ago, she's impressing us now with her new skills.

Instructor/Teacher/Friend; I do not know where to begin with this tutor of music from The Celestial Spheres. He is my own Orphic Music Instructor. In that he 'Inspires", and makes one want to practice and go with him! It's a conception easily understood, once you get going with him in learning. And if you know? Well! You'll know far more. And this can be said on all levels.
I don't know if these comments are actually looked at or reviewed in some way, but he's a raw talent in many ways, and I can see for All ages :)
