I am a professional violinist and violist in the Boston area. I am a graduate of the New England Conservatory where I have studied with Miriam Fried, Donald Weilerstein, and Martha Katz. I have performed extensively throughout my life as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player on both the violin and viola in a variety of professional ensembles including substitute viola work with the Borromeo String Quartet. I draw from this performing background to teach my students of all ages and abilities. I currently act as Adjunct Instructor of Violin and Viola at Merrimack College, where I serve as a primary instrumental teacher to enrolled students. I have also acted as the primary violin teacher for Main Street Music, LLC, in Waltham. Additionally, I run a private studio of approximately 20 students as young as 6 and as old as 60. Of these, some never touched an instrument before our first lesson, and some are serious conservatory-bound musicians intending to make a career as a performer. I take each student as they are and focus on bettering their ability as an instrumentalist and musician. My teaching emphasizes deep mechanics and musical interpretation, seeking the most efficient technique from each student and the most convincing approach for each piece. I look forward to meeting with you and working together to achieve your dreams!

Violin: A wooden stringed instrument in the violin family; it is the smallest and highest-pitched. The violin typically has four strings tuned in perfect fifths, and is most commonly played by drawing a bow across its strings, though it can also be played by plucking the strings with the fingers (pizzicato). Violins are important instruments in a wide variety of musical genres. They are most prominent in the Western classical tradition and in many varieties of folk music. They are also frequently used in genres of folk including country music and bluegrass music and in jazz. Electric violins are used in some forms of rock music; further, the violin has come to be played in many non-Western music cultures, including Indian music and Iranian music. The violin is sometimes informally called a fiddle, particularly in Irish traditional music and bluegrass, but this nickname is also used regardless of the type of music played on it. Lessons always start with the basics: Tuning, hand/bow technique, placement, ear training, notes, reading, playing songs, scales, theory and learning how to improvise.

Teaching Violin in Boston, MA

Rachel M.

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.
