Private Violin Teacher

I do a variety of styles in music for the violin. I use whatever method (book or teaching style) is needed to teach what the student needs to learn. I have been teaching violin for 25 years. Depending on age, we will start in either Essential Elements or Suzuki. All beginners will start the bow after they can read the first 8 notes. All intermediates will be able to play 2 octave scales from 3 sharps to 3 flats as well as well into Wolfhart book 1. They will also be able to shift into third position cleanly and will be starting on vibrato. For Advanced players, we will be working on Concertos, sonatas, and partitas if they wish to go classical. IF they wish other styles, we will have started that in intermediate. All students will have an opportunity to go through the music development program, if they are interested.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

My daughter just had her first lesson with Nikita! She feels like she learned more from him in her first lesson than she has learned in the last couple years. She can’t wait for her next lesson!

Truly a privilege getting instruction from Nikita! His patience and knowledge are endless; he is a natural teacher; so blessed for my son who has difficulty focusing to receive lessons from Nikita!

This is my second review.

My son has been taken from Nikita for 7 months now. What a difference the months has made! My son is enjoying the instrument more and more, he's more confident in making good sounds, and the best of all, from Nikita he's learning how to be mindful when playing.

Nikita simply is the best.

Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching violin, piano, and singing for 48 years. I invite you to join me for online lessons in my teaching studio. Since I have retired from playing violin professionally in symphony orchestras, I am focusing now on developing music students. My husband and I have raised six children, so I really love children! I have taught students from age 4 to age 80! Music is for everyone to enjoy, and my goal is to encourage a greater love and enjoyment of music through lessons.

About Kathryn

Children are very important to me, having raised six of my own! As an adult, I earned a singing degree from the Royal Conservator

The sound quality and visual quality were both excellent; there was also no time lag with sound. I would heartily recommend this method if the lesson cannot be done in person.

Online Violin Teacher

I’ve been a violin instructor for 7+ years for children and young adults ages 7-20. I teach my violin students how to read notes, work on their posture and technique in a fun and effective way. I was also first chair (leader) of the violin section in a chamber ensemble at the East Bay Center for the Performing Art in Richmond, CA for 4 consecutive years until I completed the diploma program. I am more than qualified to teach beginners and help them develop a passion for music!

"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!"
