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 first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Great experience with Zach. I'm still learning how to sing properly, though.

I believe fluency in music is every human’s right. I have spent the majority of my career teaching and learning about teaching!

“Music and language define us as human.” -Dr. Ani Patel, Music, Language, and the Brain

In lessons I seek to inspire students with the love of playing, of the process of learning to play, and the skills to make playing easy and enjoyable.

I have spent my 20 year long career teaching hundreds of students. I believe music is a tool we use to express our unique selves, and I teach accordingly to give students the tools they need to play from their hearts.

I teach a variety of styles including classical, jazz, fiddle, and creative musicianship.

I was educated at Trinity College of Music, London, and Manhattan School of Music, NYC.

I have 20 years of teaching experience, teaching all ages and levels age 2 through adult.

I hold teaching certifications in the Suzuki Method, Music Together, Dalcroze Eurythmics, the O’Connor Method, the Paul Rolland Method,

Music is my first love! After trying out several instruments, violin and viola stole my heart. I've been playing for nearly 20 years, and teaching for 9. As a teacher, I am flexible and fun-loving. I believe that music should always be fun, even when it's hard. I help foster a lifetime love of m

I’ve had three lessons so far and I feel so supported by Gail. I’m an adult student and Gail is very patient with me and kind. I actually really enjoy going to my lessons! She has already taught me so many handy tricks that she learned from many years of experience. I’m brand new to the violin and Gail is excellent at helping me with my hand placement and I feel confident that what she’s teaching me is really setting me up for success and good habits with the violin.

My son was excited about Ms Gail’s knowledge of the viola.

I Love my lessons with Ms. Gail! She makes the lesson fun and is always encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and try an exercise before a scheduled lesson. I would highly recommend Ms. Gail!

"Mr. Lacey is the Best!!

My 5 year old LOVES him. Mr. Lacey communicates well with his students. He uses positive reinforcement, but makes it a point to teach that students take ownership. My grandson has only been taking lessons for a couple of months, and is already playing several songs on the violin. I would totally recommend Mr. Lacey to anyone interested in learning an instrument."
