I've taught ages 3 to 35, beginner to undergraduate collegiate level. I can develop your left hand, bow technique, and musicality to the point that you will sound better when you leave a lesson than when you arrive every single time. I will inspire a love for the instrument that will carry through the week with you.

About Gabrielle
I'm a violinist and pianist from West Friendship, Maryland with twenty years of experience on each instrument and ten years experience teaching. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Louisville. I believe in using positive feedback to develop a student's passion for playing music. Beginner to advanced, I can make you a better musician.

I would have described how 'passionate' Gabbi is about violin but unfortunately never had that opportunity. I had scheduled the class 10 days in advance and on the day of the class Gabbi decided to shoot an email couple hours before saying she can't make it.
A dollar is minute is a very decent compensation which I don't make as an engineer with 7 years of college education. But unfortunately that didn't inspire enough professionalism in Gabbi. Maybe she reserves her professionalism for few people and not for everyone.

Gabby is a great violin teacher. She customizes her lessons to your needs, and she encourages and gives great pointers throughout the lesson. My daughter leaves her lessons with so much more knowledge and hints - than when she came with to the lesson. I have seen her improve greatly in her playing in just a few lessons.

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.

My daughter studied with Miss Grace for 3 years while she was in Detroit. Her expertise in violin performance was such an inspiration to my daughter and she learned so much. Grace was timely and prepared to all lessons, friendly in her approach, and my daughter's musical growth was enormous over those important formative years. We miss her very much!

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.
