I feel very lucky to have my son take flute lessons from Kendall! She is a wonderful teacher. Her lessons are dynamic, engaging and fun. Thirty minutes fly by like three minutes. Next time will schedule a longer session.

Whether you're 3 or 103, if you're playing violin (or starting to play!) I hope you're EXCITED about it!! Over the years, my students have said that their lessons are/have been their favorite times of each week. I believe learning to play viola should be full of joy, learning, thinking, and feeling. Bring that joy alive for yourself by partnering with me as your musical guide. I bring over 30 years of experience and pure joy to my work, and I'd love to share that with you!

About Jill

I've been in and around music all my life. I started violin at age 5, part of the first generation of Suzuki violinists in the United States. I've loved being a professional violinist and violin teacher for over 30 years! And I've also founded and directed three community music schools in Newburyp

Private Violin Teacher

I have played violin for the past 18 years and received my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I am currently a graduate student at Boston University. I think the most important part of violin playing is having fun and enjoying what you do, so I really emphasize this in my teaching. I also think it is important that we use our bodies well and avoid playing related pain, so my teaching focuses on getting players into a comfortable position with their violin. I have taught all ages, and am great teaching in the beginning stages when everything feels new and difficult!

About Marial

I have been teaching violin for the past three years and have experience with a variety of different students. My own background is in classical music, but I also have done clinics and performances in jazz, mariachi, and fiddle. I like to cater to my students and find what music drives them, so I v

I like teaching interactively. I guide students to think not just about how, but also about why. Students benefit the most from self-teaching, after all, the teacher is not with the student 100% of the time.

About Jay

I’m a doctoral violinist currently studying at James Madison University. I love teaching and have a lot of teaching experience. I also perform a lot as an ensemble player. I’ve served leadership positions at various symphony/opera/musical orchestras.

Hello and Welcome. I've been playing violin for 30 years and love sharing the gift of music with my students. I teach students of all levels, ages 8 - Adult. I believe it's never too late to learn the violin. I'm classically trained, but I can also teach other genres of music including celtic, bluegrass, jazz, and popular music. I provide instruction in proper violin technique, posture, intonation, listening, and music reading. I believe learning the violin should be a fun experience and I greatly enjoy helping others become successful players. I look forward to meeting you soon!

I really enjoy Julie's lessons. Being an adult learner, I was nervous starting as a beginner. But Julie is very encouraging, patient, and knowledgeable. She has helped me become a better player and learn techniques which I struggled with when trying to teach myself. I highly recommend, she's a fantastic teacher!

I have been playing violin since kindergarten, and I have experiences in teaching beginner students at SUNY Albany campus and I absolutely loved it! Music Performance was one of my majors of my undergraduate degrees, and I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to perform a solo piece, Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in my senior year. I am currently enrolled in a Master's program for Intercultural Communication & English language education. Teaching has been one of my long-lasting passions and I am more than happy to work with various levels of violin learners. Hope to hear from you soon!!

"Excellent first lesson with Mark (also very first online lesson in anything). I was impressed with how much was accomplished and done in just 30 minutes. Most importantly, my kid enjoyed it despite the initial resistance and is already asking about his next lesson."

"I am an adult beginner, and Julia is everything I hoped for in a violin teacher! I have been studying with her for a little over 6 months now. -She has high standards for all students, even if you are an adult beginner ( yes, I want my teacher to be as strict to me as she is to her 8-year-olds). I really love that she takes my learning violin as an adult very seriously. And learning the violin you really want to be serious and "picky". I love her detailed comments on my playing as it helps me also look for the same things during my regular practices. -She tailors lessons to your needs. If I am struggling with particular string crossings, she will ask me to play a specific exercise that addresses that. And her feedback/suggestions for fixing a habit is very structured, so you know what to do when you come across a similar struggle again. Like playing the part with different speed, different rhythm and slowly overcome your problem step by step. -She balances her class well with etudes and repertoire. As I said, I am serious about this hobby and love classical music. I prefer not to rush and build techniques the right way. She gives me technical exercises every class along with standard repertoires. We've been working through exercises in Wolhfhart and Shradieck, and those are really difficult etudes (for me), but I really have seen huge improvement in bow control and speed after practicing them. If you ever wonder about picking up the violin or another instrument, do it now! Why not? I am so glad I did, and Julia really helped me improve quickly. She is kind, extremely talented and knowledgeable! Good luck and be sure to practice 40 hours a day! :)"

I am a 44 yo violin beginner student who has had 5 teachers in the last 6 years, I didn’t learn much with them, this been said, with Peter in just 3 months I feel I have learned more than my other teachers. Peter is so, so patient and extremely professional. I am very pleased to have found such a wonderful teacher."

"Yakov Dyman has all the qualities necessary for teaching children, piano and violin. He is a disciplined craftsman, has a love for music and teaching and, most important, is able to transfer a passion for music to his students. My daughter had some rudimentary knowledge of the violin when she began to study with Yakov just over a year ago. Today she has good tonality, she practices with enthusiasm everyday and impresses friends and family playing pieces unexpected considering the short time she has been studying. The same is true of her bother on piano.
We feel, through Yakov's artistry, he inspires the kids to approach their music as musicians, not just music students."

"I’ve been learning with Emily for 4 years now and have seen major improvements with my playing. She is such a dedicated, hardworking teacher. I have gotten so many amazing opportunities working with her, such as joining youth orchestras, playing in recitals, concerts, etc. No matter your level, she always motivates you to do better. I wish I could learn with her forever :(("
