Private Violin Teacher

Have you or your kids always wanted to learn to play the violin? I am an experienced violin teacher specialized in beginner and intermediate violin students of ALL ages. I believe that it is never too late to learn to play the violin, no matter your age! I teach classical violin through Suzuki method and also modern violin with a focus on rock, jazz and improvisation.

About Hannah

After studying piano for almost 10 years I decided I wanted to learn a new instrument and began taking violin lessons when I was 16 years old. In spite of people telling me that I was “too old” to learn to play the violin, I continued practicing and one year later I joined my first orchestra. In 20

Hannah does a wonderful job with my daughter, she started with how to tune and set up the violin. Hannah does a great job working with my daughter showing her the proper technique and providing her exercises and activities to do in between lessons. You can tell Hannah loves teaching and music.

Private Violin Teacher

I've been teaching for more than 10 years, and playing for more than 20. While my strongest background is in classical music, with over 20 years experience and a competitive resume, I also have fairly extensive experience with jazz, bluegrass, folk tunes, and electric violin. I take my pride in my ability to structure repertoire and exercises according to each student's goals.

I've taught both group and individual lessons in the past, and founded and designed a program back in NJ for under-served communities without arts programs to learn violin from the ground up, with 50+ participants. My general approach is to maintain certain necessary basic technical standards and introductory milestones, while individualizing the repertoire and goals based on each student's interests, and their strengths and weaknesses.

About Deby

About Me: I teach violin and viola. I recently returned for my Master's in Music at BU in viola. I received my undergraduate degree from Princeton, with a Certificate in Music Performance while studying both violin and viola at Manhattan School of Music Pre-college(based in NY).

Bgcheck Background Checked


Online Violin Teacher

For the dedicated, adventurous, and creative student.

I create a space for the intelligent and inquisitive to explore what is possible through music, using the violin and other instruments or the process of music production as an opportunity to develop their personal voice.

You can learn and master an instrument, and I will help you do that, but there's more to it than that.

You can create music in a way that makes your life better. Through mastery of an instrument, or the skills of music production, you can see the world through a more colorful lens.

I teach violin, piano, voice, music production, composition, and songwriting.

About Josh

Short version: I grew up in Florida, where I spent my time water gardening, woodcarving, playing the violin, and slaying giant sea monsters in the Gulf of Mexico. I’ve composed film scores, arranged string quartets, and recorded/produced everything from rock bands to madrigalian choirs. I played

Josh is not your average music instructor! He has a way of using songs and methods that will reach each individual student to provide a great learning environment. My daughter has learned a lot!

Raul
I’ve had the privilege of taking some minor violin lessons as well as some piano lessons from Josh, and even had the pleasure of having him on my 3rd album as a collaborator. As an instructor, he was able to explain these new musical instrument endeavors for me, and remind me of the the thrill of overcoming a hurdle when it comes to composing and teaching yourself. I’ve been playing guitar for about 17 years now, so that hurdle was many years ago. I highly recommend Josh for instruction at all age and experience levels.

Steve
Josh is a talented musician, great communicator, and patient teacher. He has a unique was of combining movement and body control into his teaching of music to create a wholistic practice. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn music.

Patient, good humored, and knows her stuff. This was a brilliant first lesson and I am thrilled with the outcome, already on to a full song challenging me to do transitions and tempo. She is great at working with the student to find out where they need help and when they can go fast.

Not only do I have certification in specifically private lessons, but I have a very wide range of experience. I have played classical music, quartet music, new compositions, avant-garde pieces, and also in jazz and rock bands. I taught music professionally in public schools for 5 years, and I've been teaching privately for 7. I'm an active professional performer, as well as a composer, and the former principal violist of The Parker Symphony.

About Andrew
