I teach beginner and intermediate violin students helping them develop their bow technique and intonation.

About Yoon Jae
I am a highly-skilled professional musician certified as a certified Steinway education partner with over 14 years of teaching experience. I offer lessons in classical piano, violin, viola, conducting, arranging/orchestration as well as private tutoring in ear training and theory.

My main instrument is piano and I specialize in teaching students who already play the instrument and wish to get a more in-depth experience with piano literature by learning new repertoire and developing their technique. I also teach adult beginners and young beginners whose parents have a dedicated commitment to having their children make music an integral part of their education. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently and developing critical listening skills. This encourages consistent improvement and whatever your perso
nal piano goals and skill levels are, I will help you improve and enjoy playing the piano more. I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of your desire to play the piano better. In addition to piano, I teach beginner and intermediate violin and viola students.

I encourage all my students to perform once or twice a year but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level.

I am available and willing to travel to your home for an extra fee as long as public transportation is available.

I'm so glad I ended up with Yoon Jae for my very first violin lesson. He took me through the first steps - as basic as holding the violin - really carefully and not at all condescendingly, even though I'm an adult who never even learned to read music. In fact, he couldn't have been more patient. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn violin in a supportive atmosphere!

I have been playing violin for 24 years & teaching lessons since 2001. Using the Suzuki Method & practice exercises, students will learn how to play by ear & eventually by sight-reading. Instruction begins with proper handling & care for their instrument as well as basic technique. By your first or second lesson, students will be able to play a song, building the foundation for more advanced technique & more diversified repertoire as we progress. For best rate of progress, students are asked to practice 30 minutes everyday!

Antonella is a wonderful music instructor. She is patient, kind, and personable. Her musical talent is unmatched and she taught my daughter not only how to play the piano and violin, but also provided voice lessons as well. We miss her and her instructions very much! Antonella taught my daughter at home, online, and in the music store.

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.

Ani is a wonderful teacher! I have always wanted to learn to play the Piano. But, it was my daughter who first started learning with Ani. It was evident that Ani is a higly skilled pianist. And I saw how much my child enjoyed the lessons, the easy rapport that was established and the wealth of knowledge that Ani brings. Needless to say, I signed up too! My daughter and I love our lessons and look forward to the class each week.

Ani is an amazing instructor. It is clear that she cares very much about her profession. I signed up for voice lessons, and she has been teaching me to read music and play the piano because it all ties together. She is also getting me to a point of independence so that I can practice at home with ease. I just love how peaceful and non-judge-mental she is... I have learned lots and I am very happy I found her :)!

Music is my passion and I love sharing it with others! I have been teaching private music lessons for 8 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Violin Performance with minors in Music History and Piano Pedagogy. Students of all ages and backgrounds have studied with me. I try to personalize my teaching style to incorporate the musical interests of my students so that learning always stays fun and productive!

About Bronwyn
I'm an avid violinist and pianist. I graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in May 2017 with a degree in Violin Performance and minors in Music History and Piano Pedagogy.

I love sharing my music with others and believe teaching is one of the best ways of doing that. My lessons are built around the unique interests of each student so that they feel positive about what they're learning and their progress.

I believe that much time is wasted by practicing inefficiently so I spend time each lesson discussing not only how to fix the problems students encounter, but how to practice more effectively. I like to challenge each student to approach music as an artist approaches a painting. Skill and technique are as equally important as telling (or painting) a story with each new song!

I have over ten years of experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds. I teach students as young as 5 years old up through adult. As a teacher I cater to students with varying learning styles and use many different teaching techniques to fit students’ individual needs. I believe that no student learns in the same way and as a result of this philosophy I adapt my teaching to each specific, unique situation. I want music to be a fun activity where students can feel comfortable expressing themselves.
