Private Violin Teacher

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 5-10 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.

Luther loves to teach. At every lesson he is there for you, ready to help you. He has an extensive musical background, after studying violin at New England Conservatory with Meriam Fried and Donald Weilerstein, as well as performing and studying at many prestigious summer music festivals, including Ravinia’s Steans Institute, the Perlman Music Program Chamber Music Workshop, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and the Taos School of Music. In addition, Luther is an excellent violist, studying with Martha Katz, also at New England Conservatory.

Luther loves to answer all of your questions. He will analyze and dissect your technical questions about how to play the violin: concerning tone, bowing, left hand issues, and how to use your arms, shoulders, back and your whole body while playing the instrument. He can help you with fingering and answer your questions about written music. He will demonstrate and help you play musically. He is able prepare you for your orchestral audition, help you learn concertos and other solo music and help you with chamber music. Thanks Luther for continuing to help me attain my dream to become an excellent violinist!

I had my first lesson with Luther today. He is personable, informative, gave constructive feedback and encouraged me. I found his style of instruction helpful.
I’m looking forward to my next lesson with him.
Brabeeba
It's a blaze to work with Luther! He identified my problem very quickly and provided concrete advices on improving the sound. His understanding on how beautiful sound is made is very clear and systematic. There are so many dimensions in the sound making for violin but he always breaks it down and works on each individual part of my postures and bowing. My sound is now much fuller than before! He also not only teaches violin but also how to think about music in general. I feel like I am constantly critically thinking on how I can experiment with each phrase after I take lessons with Luther. I will highly recommend Luther if you want to find a violin teacher!

Study with the Concertmaster of the San Antonio Symphony! Prizewinner of international violin competitions, Billboard-charting recording artist. I've taught at Rice University, UT Austin, TCU, and given many masterclasses in the US and abroad. My goal as a teacher is to make myself superfluous. I teach my students to find their own unique voice, not how to copy my style. My former teachers include Cho-Liang Lin, Linda Cerone, among many others.

I love teaching all aspects of violin, and a good teacher will listen to you before having an idea of what to say. If you want to do some deep work on technique, musicality, or mental stamina, we'll get right to it. Proficiency in reading music is a basic requisite for my fee to be worth your time.

About Eric

I'm very fortunate to be able to regularly collaborate with many incredible artists in my international career as a concertmaster, soloist, chamber musician, and recording artist. I've learned from everyone I've ever worked with, and this is especially true when it comes to my private students. As

Mr. Gratz has been amazing for my children. As a phenomenal violinist he is able to inspire them by his example. When he demonstrates a section of music, I see my children’s faces light up with excitement. As an excellent educator he tailors his instruction to the unique needs and personalities of each of my children. He exudes the perfect blend of excitement and discipline in his teaching. He is both demanding and caring in his expectations. It is a real privilege for our children to get to take lessons with Mr. Gratz.
Anthony
Cool guy, demanding teacher, great combination. Seriously, this guy knows his stuff. I leave every lesson with something new to work on for the next lesson and I know what I’m getting is some of the best there is. Anyone would be really fortunate to study with Eric, so I’m glad I’m able to every week.
Sharon
Eric is an exceptional violinist and teacher. I have taken lessons with him for about 4 years now, starting with in-home lessons and now online lessons due to covid. In my lessons, Eric really shines in teaching bow hold and nuanced bow strokes, as well as teaching musicality. Prior to Eric, I had taken lessons with about 7 or 8 different teachers, who were good in their own different ways, however had focused primarily on left hand technique. Eric showed me that there is so much more to playing and executing music at a high level. In lessons we discuss musical interpretations, something I had never had to do or think about before, much less vocalize. Eric also pushed me to play genres of music that were outside my comfort zone, so I have grown as a musician by better understanding different genres and not just the ones I am comfortable with. There is also something about having a good teacher/student relationship and interactions, which involve the expectations, pace of learning, and the ways in which a teacher instructs (which encompasses attitude, analogies, etc); Eric has a really good way of describing things, as well as putting enough of a fire under your butt to make you push harder. There is nothing that can replace having a teacher who can actually play and demonstrate, and not just talk about how a technique should be. Eric can PLAY. And in lessons, his ears are so good and quick they can hear and pick up on things like you wouldn’t believe, EVEN over online lessons! I also love that I was able to learn very high level etudes, like Paganini caprices, and he really knows them and can play them, so you have confidence in the way you approach the music and techniques. Whoever takes lessons with Eric is very lucky because his knowledge isn’t just walking around with your every day violin teachers, it’s really special.

1 hour lesson with music theory, performance tips, and of course playing music!
I have been teaching for 7 years. In 2013 I received my Bachelors Degree in music from Bluefield College. I have played for the Rappahannock Youth Symphony and the Bluefield College Orchestra and I have in duets and trios with members of the Roanoke Symphony. I enjoy playing music, because music echoes the soul. Everyone may speak a different language, but all musicians speak the same language of notes and rhythm.

"Great Teacher with a low pressure style

I've been taking violin lessons from Marc for several weeks and he is a great teacher. He has a low pressure teaching style that I really like because I get nervous when I play in front of other people. He seems very knowledgeable in both the technical aspects of the violin as well as the music theory. He is quick to return emails and is always happy to answer my questions. I've taken other instrument lessons in the past and Marc is by far the best teacher I've had. I'm really enjoying my lessons with Marc and I hope to continue for a long time to come."
