About Sepehrdad
As an experienced Violin teacher I help students to teach themselves the violin, to understood that their playing only improves when they change habits. A bored or disinterested child simply won’t progress, and a great violin teacher knows how to communicate with creativity and clarity. I have proper knowledge of the violin’s mechanics, general musical and repertoire knowledge, skilled as a player, and strength as a communicator. I have a bachelor degree in string performance, and I’ve taught students from beginner to advance for more than 10 years, guided students participating in inter-school musical shows, competitions and different musical presentations – Fests and orchestras. I teach both Suzuki and traditional method depending on the level of student.

The teaching materials I use will depend on the student's age or experience. I strongly recommend that violin students also have some knowledge of playing the piano; if the student has not studied the keyboard, I will spend about 15 minutes each lesson for the first few months to teach keyboard playing, with the student's consent (using materials such as Bastien and Thompson).
For the first year of a beginning violin student, I prefer to use Rubank Publications, Essential Elements 2000, New Directions for strings (by FJH), and Suzuki book 1-3. We can also supplement the material with Tunes on the First Position, pop music selections, including Disney Solos for Violin, Star Wars Episodes, etc.
For years 2 and more, I like to use intermediate materials such as Violin Scales and Arpeggios -Fingerings based on Carl Flesch by Lisa Berman, M.M., Introducing the Positions and Developing Double-Stops for Violin by Harvey S. Whistler, Suzuki book 4-5, Hal Leonard Violin vol.3- Classical, and

About Janine
Dear friends:
My name is Cheng-Yin (Janine). I am a native of Taiwan, who earned an undergraduate degree in violin performance in Taiwan, further completed a Master's Degree at Peabody Institute, and a Doctorate Degree at Louisiana State University. My minors are piano and conducting. I loved playing chamber and orchestral music, including playing for LSU faculty chamber recitals and serving as the assistant concertmaster of the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra.
Along the way I also enjoyed many inspiring and edifying experiences as a teacher in addition to being a musician, including giving private lessons (children aged 7-16), providing instructions to undergraduate college students, as well as in group class settings for children's orchestra (grades 2-5). I have a vision to guide students to enjoy playing music, to discover their inn

Janine is excellent with teaching. Very precise, she is very keen on the tone, intonation and rhythm with the playing always trying to get the best out of the student. She progresses with the lessons really fast. She teaches music theory details along the way. She is also an excellent player, her recordings of the lessons are excellent, helping the student in listening to the music. She is kind, positive and very encouraging. I am lucky to have her as my teacher.

My ultimate goal as a teacher is to educate and inspire my students, provoke and develop their interest and love to music and the violin. While not solely using a single method or school, I use a combination of all knowledge I earned as a pedagogue on the multiple continents. I guide each student into the discovery of the most natural, relaxed technique and develop a set of skills necessary to be able to understand, analyze and interpret music of various styles and genres.

About Dr. Tatiana
Praised in the media for her 'dark plush romantic violin sound' (New York Concert Review)and 'thrilling technique and bravura style" (San Francisco Classical Voice) violinist Tatiana Chulochnikova is pursuing an active career as a soloist, concertmaster and chamber musician with performances spanning throughout the United States with groups such as Washington Bach Consort, American Bach Soloists and the Four Nations Ensemble. An award winning violinist, Tatiana is also a founder of the Rubinstein Music Society - organization which strives to uncover the legacy of forgotten and unfairly unnoticed classical composers.

All-around wonderful violin teacher! Evan has always been encouraging (and patient!) and made every lesson an enjoyable experience. I've decided to pick up the violin after a very long hiatus and at almost 30 years old - Evan provided a great game plan for me to begin reading music again as well as valuable exercises to improve my form. I'm looking forward to keeping up my violin studies with Evan and know that I've enjoyed my time (and improved my playing ability!) because of his instruction and guidance. I'd highly recommend Evan to any player - young or old - looking to pick up violin for the first time or to further hone their musical abilities.
