I've been teaching violin for over ten years, and I've always found that a strengths-based, supportive stance is the strongest filter through which to receive the challenging material and feedback you'll be getting as you learn to play this difficult instrument. I will point out your strengths, so you can nuture them, and build on those strengths to a solid technique and explore them to find your unique musicality. I am your coach, and I am here to see you succeed!

About Kylie
I have been teaching music for over ten years, and my performing experience ranges from solo appearances with orchestras across the country to intimate chamber performances. I have studied under such renowned teachers as Anton Miller, Eugenia Choi, and Gregory Fulkerson, and my pedagogic education includes study under internationally renowned Suzuki educator Teri Einfeldt. I have held music directorships in ID and CT, and my students have won awards for their playing.

I am deeply interested in the ways in which experiencing and making art can act as a transformative power in an individual's life, and, by extension, in broader cultural contexts. I hold two degrees from the prestigious Hartt School of Music, and have experience teaching both children and adults.

I think Kylie is very sweet but I am giving a poor review due to (1) small space - which was one windowless non-soundproof room in a music store and (2) receiving two emails just now that she has canceled the next 2 weekends.

I'm very happy to be learning the violin with Kylie. She is highly skilled as a violinist, very engaging as a music instructor, and very compassionate as an educator/person.
She has helped me find a passion and skill for music i did not know i had. I come to every lesson excited to show what i've been practicing, and leave inspired to practice more.
She is also a very interesting person to talk to.
I'd whole-heartedly recommend Kylie as your music teacher! ^_^ Good luck!

I've been teaching violin for about 6 years and am currently pursuing my Master's of Music Performance at CU-Boulder.

I say that Ava is always on time and very accommodating. We have had to change our schedule a few times, but we have always found a way to make lesson time work. Thank you!

Ina is everything you could want in a teacher! She's extremely talented (played wonderfully in the symphony orchestra that I went to see!) and has a good grasp of music theory. She is very kind, friendly and patient, and really does an incredible job of bringing out musical talent even for people like me who haven't touched a musical instrument since elementary school! :) I'm truly honored to have her as a teacher, and I hope that you can get the chance to learn from her as well!

North Grafton, MA

I am a firm believer that anyone can learn how to play an instrument and enjoy doing so. Although my teaching style is grounded in establishing a foundation of strong technique, I am also well aware that not every student is going to enjoy or want to play classical music, and that's okay! My goal is to help my students establish a relationship with their instrument and music in general, so they are able to grow and develop in the direction they want.

About Brittany
I am a professional violinist/violist as well as an English teacher/tutor. I started violin when I was 4 years old with private, group, and orchestra lessons for 14 years. During high school I was a member of a touring orchestra, which traveled to the Dominican Republic, Louisiana, and Mississippi. I also auditioned for and participated in the Central Massachusetts District Music Festival with violin and viola for 4 years, as well as the Massachusetts All-State Music festival for 3. My senior year in high school I was the top performing female violist in the All-State orchestra. After high school I attended Framingham State University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English, with minors in History and Music. I currently attend Simmons College where I am working towards my Master of Arts in Teaching. Since high school I have been a nanny, a
tutor, and a teacher. I currently teach private violin and viola lessons. I also tutor students for writing, reading, and organizational skills.

I got my bachelor degree in Renmin University of China, which is one of the best university in China. I had 24 students before I came to States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient, I have a beautiful smile, of course, and the most important thing is I can teach well. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at the same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music

LETS MAKE MUSIC!! By being able to connect and make music relatable, we will work from the ground up to ensure all techniques, terminology and knowledge of the instrument and music will be achieved!

About Tara
LETS MAKE MUSIC!! With viola being my main instrument after falling in love with the music over 15 years ago I have taken a liking to the cello and violin as well. I am a degreed musician that is classically trained. Jazz band, symphony orchestra, quartets, weddings and various studio recordings have helped in creating the musician I am today. Being able to connect and make music relatable to any student is something i take pride in. Some students aren't able to have one on one time with their conductor and I believe that is where the private teacher comes in.

Let's build. Let's grow. Let's make music!
