Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for the past six years. As a student who struggled myself in nearly every aspect of education, I understand the importance of individualized learning. As a teacher and performer, I look to find relationships between the emotional and intellectual facets of music. By doing this, I try to uncover the mystery of violin playing, allowing my students to gain an understanding that will last with them forever.

Every single student posseses the potential to fulfill his or her violinistic dreams. I cater my teaching around the goals of each student, while still instilling a high artistic integrity.

Though I center each lesson around building a superior technical foundation, duet playing, the theory of harmony, and aural skills are integral parts of my teaching. I strive for my students to develope a beautiful, in-tune, pure sound that can directly connect to their own emotional palette.

About Thomas

Hailed as "delightfully spirited, [with a] rich tone" (Cleveland Classical) violinist Thomas Cooper has appeared as a soloist with several American orchestras, including the Colorado College Festival Orchestra, the Coeur D'Alene Symphony Orchestra, the Credo Baroque Orchestra, the Dubois Orchestra

Private Violin Teacher

I've taught people who were just beginning violin (both children and adults) to students who were working on major concertos. What is most important to me as a teacher is building a strong foundation from which it is possible to branch out and connect emotionally with the music they play. I also strive to make performers out of violinists and to help them engage both audiences and themselves.

About Ha-eun

I have been surrounded by music my whole life and have played violin for 20 years. I went to high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy, obtained a BM in violin performance at Oberlin Conservatory and an MM at the Boston Conservatory. I have won competitions, played in professional orchestras, per

VERY IMPATIENT. NOT COURTEOUS. VERY RUSHED, DIS ORGANIZED
Liah P.
Ha-eun has been an amazing violin teacher. I played violin for several years throughout my childhood and then stopped playing for about 10 years before deciding I wanted to learn again. Having not played for so long, I wasn't really sure what I remembered or what my skill level was at.

Ha-eun has done a great job evaluating me and picking pieces that are challenging but still do-able. She is really friendly and encouraging and has made re-learning the violin an enjoyable experience.

For personal reasons, I have to take a break from violin for a little but when I re-start lessons, I will definitely pick Ha-eun as my teacher again if she is still taking students at that time!

She really knows her stuff when it comes to music and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn violin.
Miriam
I was exited to start my first lesson and it was great! Ha-eun welcomed me warmly and I think learning with her will be successfull and wonderful at the same time. Looking forward to my next lesson!

Both my daughter (7 years old) and I love taking violin lessons from Merav! She obviously has a passion for music and violin in particular, which you can't help but be inspired by. She puts much effort and thought into how to help each individual student progress, and is always very gentle and kind when offering suggestions for improvement. We look forward to our lessons every week!
Jerry
Merav Singer was the teacher for my class Basic Musicianship at UC Berkeley in the summer semester 2019. Merav was helpful, patient and skillful. I came to this class with no music background and English as a foreign language. Merav taught us in an appropriate way and pace so that we were all able to follow. I learned how to conduct the beat and how to sing, and basic elements of music such as staff and musical notation. The atmosphere of Merav’s class was active as she sang with us and used different musical instruments to help us understand better. I enjoyed her class not only because she took good control of the class with her passion and charisma, but also because Merav was very patient. She spent a lot of time after class explaining the material to me over and over again to make sure I could understand the concepts taught in a foreign language. I learned a lot during this summer and I am sure that anyone would enjoy learning information and skills from Merav.
Kelly
Merav is a gifted violin instructor for all ages and levels. Her insight into the mechanics of violin playing, and ability to create a series of steps to achieve even the more complex aspects of music making, continue to inform my own teaching and performance. Truly, the best teacher is one who gives you the tools to continue to learn on your own long past your studies, and Merav is just that!

Online Violin Teacher

I am an experienced violinist and violist and music educator, who loves working with adult beginners. I have been teaching for over 20 years, and performing professionally for over 30 years. Are you an adult who has always wanted to play the violin but was never able to? Were you told you were too old or that it was too late? Maybe you want to revisit the instrument you gave up as a youngster. I can help you get back on track. I can give you the skills and confidence you will need to accomplish your goals. It's never too late!

I am also gifted in strengthening the skills of those who have already had some experience playing violin and/or viola, but would like to improve, no matter your age. I can help young students prepare for all state and all county competitions. My lessons are laid back, personable, and enjoyable.

Kimberly is patient!! Gives clear instruction which immediately improves my playing. I am so happy with my choice of instructor!
Kent Looney
Kimberly Simkins has been a wonderful instructor for my daughter, as she works to improve her Viola playing. She is very interactive with my daughter and provides good feedback for my daughter's Viola playing.

I have been happy with this instruction and I hope others have a chance to see how personable and skilled she is.
Elyssa
Mrs. Simpkins is a great teacher and instructor and knows exactly how to make great players. I have Dyslexia and signed up for lessons after playing for a few years. Mrs. Simpkins knows exactly how to teach me and has shaped me into a great player. If you are wanting to learn to play Violin or Viola, or want to improve she is the teacher to go to. She is through, and has a great ability to shape amazing players. She got me into senior clinic and in the last concert I was placed 3rd chair mainly because of her instruction. I hope to continue lessons with her for the next year until I graduate. Although she has not been my teacher for all 9 years I have been playing, she has been my teacher for the past 4 years and I have loved having her teach me during every lesson. Having Mrs. Simpkins as your teacher, will make your playing improve significantly. I highly recommend her to everyone!

"This was the 1st violin lesson for my 5 year old daughter. And it went far better than expected. Mrs. Rui is a wonderful teacher. Patient, warm, and very talented with teaching young children. I was impressed to see how much my daughter learned in only 45 minutes. When it was over my daughter said, "That was so much fun!". My daughter is looking forward to her next lesson."
