Samuel K.

Book Now

Dr. Samuel Kelder has concertized throughout the United States and Europe, and has studied with some of the finest pedagogues of this generation. His passion for teaching stems from the fine training he received in New York City and Boston, and his urge to share with the next generation of string players all that he has discovered along his own musical journey.

As an educator of all age groups, my first priority is to instill a sense of motivation for my students. Through my 20+ years of experience taking lessons from a variety of different teachers and methodologies, I have come to understand that the bulk of progress made is by the student’s personal discovery and advancements on the instrument. My weekly lessons provide several levels of insight: teaching the art of practicing and problem solving, guidance in how to break down and understand problematic technical issues, and most importantly how to bring an individual ownership to any piece of music. These skills are certainly ...

About Samuel

Violist Samuel Kelder is an unswerving proponent of chamber music, orchestral projects, multimedia presentations, and music education. Kelder’s multifaceted career spans the music of the Baroque era to fresh ink of contemporary composer-performer collaborations. Described as “dynamic and committed

Whether you're a beginner looking to explore a new instrument, or a young professional preparing for an orchestral or college audition, I'm eager to share my passion of music and teaching experience with you. Throughout my teaching and performing career, I have been highly successful at helping students bring out the very best they can offer. Many of my students got accepted to study at major universities and music conservatories, and/or earned positions at orchestras or teaching institutions.

I'm strict and have very high expectations, but I was also praised for being encouraging and supportive. I strongly believe in the power of music, and the many benefits of learning a musical instrument.

Ferenc is an excellent instructor! He is patient and explains things well, and is very nice to boot!
Victoria L.
My daughter loves Mr Ferenc, he is so kind, patient and thorough, and works with our limited schedule. As a former violin player myself, (albeit 22 years ago) I really appreciate how exacting his standards are for form and posture and I wish my early instructors had been of his caliber.
Ted
Ferenc is an incredibly talented violinist and mentor, who used to be a violin professor before coming to Vegas. Besides being knowledgeable, he is also very patient with kids (being a parent himself). He might travel to the student's location, but I don't know for sure.

"Mr. Brian is an awesome mentor!! I highly recommend him! I have been studying with him for almost 4 years now and he keeps inspiring me. I did not like my previous piano teacher; all she did was yelling at me for playing bad. :( I am so lucky that I got switched to Mr. Brian. I have gotten a deeper understanding of music theory, composers' historical backgrounds and most importantly, piano technique. He has helped me with arm movement/weight transfer on the keyboard. Over these years with him, I have also heard Mr. Brian's performances in the city. I feel so proud and lucky to have him as my wonderful teacher! He is definitely someone whom I can look up to!"

"Ilona is an EXCELLENT piano teacher and we are so happy we found her!

My daughter, who is 13, once again loves playing piano thanks to Ilona. About 3 years ago, our first piano teacher moved away, and it was a major challenge replacing her. We tried 3 piano teachers over the past 3 years, before finding Ilona. Ilona is a breath of fresh air, a true professional and has an impeccable teaching style, second to none. My daughter is now practicing every day and can't wait for her weekly hour lesson. It is a pleasure and a privilege to have such an amazing individual teaching my daughter piano! We could not be happier. Ilona is definitely a class act!!"
