Private Violin Teacher

I have played violin for the past 18 years and received my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I am currently a graduate student at Boston University. I think the most important part of violin playing is having fun and enjoying what you do, so I really emphasize this in my teaching. I also think it is important that we use our bodies well and avoid playing related pain, so my teaching focuses on getting players into a comfortable position with their violin. I have taught all ages, and am great teaching in the beginning stages when everything feels new and difficult!

I have been teaching violin for the past three years and have experience with a variety of different students. My own background is in classical music, but I also have done clinics and performances in jazz, mariachi, and fiddle. I like to cater to my students and find what music drives them, so I v

Private Violin Teacher

Experienced and well rounded musician. Just graduated from New England Conservatory with Masters in Voice Performance. Performed recently as Cunegonde in Bernstein's Candide and Queen of the Night in Mozart's Magic Flute.

Also trained in violin (15 years) and piano (10 years), and have experience tutoring music theory and keyboard harmony at the undergrad level.

I love playing in orchestra and chamber ensembles, and will gladly play with you to work on listening and musicianship as well as technique and fundamentals. We can also work on playing by ear, and can address all different types of repertoire!

Lets start the road towards your musical growth and enjoyment in the way YOU work best!!

While we are at it, we can work on another instrument, music theory, or even an academic subject (check out my other subjects on my page!).

Catherine is very responsible and extremely helpful for my music theory study. She set up additional office hours to help me understand the knowledge and pass the advanced tonal practice course. Her introduction was very clear and she delivered it with great patience. She was also very thoughtful to be flexible to fit my schedule. I really appreciate her help, and would highly recommend her.

I couldn’t of made it through my first two years of college without her.

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!
Holly
With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.

Michael is very energetic and passionate about music. My kids have really enjoyed their time with him and we would recommend him to anyone!

"what an excellent way to learn!

For anyone, even adults like me, wanting to learn or improve on piano or violin I would highly recommend Pearl. She is fun, and tailors your lessons to really focus on areas you need help with. She will save you a lot of time and aggregation if you follow her tips and lessons. She is also flexible when I feel like switching lessons from violin to piano. She's easy going and the best!!

Teaching Violin in Boston, MA

By Rachel M. - Boston Violin Teacher

Although I’ve been fortunate enough to have taught violin lessons in many other cities throughout my career, my experience teaching violin lessons in Boston has been amazing for reasons incredibly unique to the city itself. There are many cities that offer a rich classical music scene, but Boston also happens to be a destination spot for budding professional musicians. We have four incredible music schools within the city, not to mention the many thriving music departments contained in local colleges and universities. All of these institutions house hundreds of talented musicians and dozens of affordable, professional-level performances each week. In addition to what’s happening within our conservatories, there are professional ensembles playing in the city year-round at venues such as Symphony Hall and Jordan Hall. In short, there’s always an opportunity to hear amazing classical music in Boston.

As a teacher, I can provide guidance on how to hold a violin and how to play a passage more in tune, but it’s up to a city and the artistic community within it to supply the student with the chance to hear great performances. One of the many things I love about teaching violin lessons in Boston is hearing a student’s excitement about playing the violin after an inspiring concert. It’s not unusual at all for a student to tell me during a lesson about a concert they heard at Symphony Hall or the New England Conservatory, nor do I have any trouble recommending a place to hear talented violinists. As long as I am teaching violin lessons in Boston, I know there will always be opportunities for that.
