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.

Great teacher. Very patient and observant. He tells you where your strengths and weaknesses are and develops a plan to assist you in overcoming your weaknesses. My left hand is weak but the more I practice on the assignments the more I become confident in my success.

My son’s first lesson went really well! Mr. Charles was really accommodating - as we were running late and he patiently waited and completed our full first session. My son is already looking to his next lesson.

Having had the training to sing Opera and performing in them, I understand how that is supposed to work and the amount of breath control that you need to do it well. If you are a beginner we will start off small and work our way up and if you and more of an intermediate singer, we will see how much farther we can get you to go.

About Nicole

As a voice teacher and voice coach, I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me, singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you. It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something en

"Mr. Nader is an excellent instructor who always puts his students first. He customizes his lessons in accordance to each individual and patiently works with them so that they may achieve their optimum potential.

More than just a passive teacher of the violin, Mr. Nader dedicates his time and energy as a full time instructor of violin, cello, and music theory. Furthermore, Mr. Nader exhibits a level of knowledge, intellect, understanding, and culture rarely seen in the world today. When one walks into his music room, one will be struck with awe at not only the amount of books in Mr. Nader's library collection, but also the wide variety of subjects ranging from Music, Music History, Biographies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many more. However, do not think that these books are just for display. Quite the contrary, one short conversation with Mr. Nader will show that he is well versed in all these subjects; a modern incarnation of the Renaissance polymath. Building off of his broad knowledge base, Mr. Nader not only teaches one how to play an instrument, he also teaches one how to cultivate oneself in Music and the culture from which it originates.

With a passion for Music and a yearn to pass on higher culture to the avid learner, Mr. Nader is the best instructor for all those who wish to learn Music along with its connection to the history, society, and culture from which it springs."

"I've always LOVED guitar... but I NEVER thought that I'd be playing it myself someday! That is until I found my music instructor Russell. I took up keys at first, but I felt this urge to want to learn the guitar. Russell is an awesome instructor, in fact he also taught my 7-8 yr. old (at the time) drums, which she picked up quick. He was always very patient, in fact he always walked in with a smile and a positive attitude, which is really important for parents of kids taking any kind of lessons. Anyway, back to the music, Russell is a multi-instumentalist and a fantastic producer and engineer as well, but I have to say that he is truly one with the guitar... so I was very lucky to learn from a pro but more importantly someone who is truly passionate about teaching. I have applied all the knowledge I've gained and applied it to my own music productions. Thanks to Russell, my musical compositions have grown tremendously. I love that I can learn new guitar songs and put techniques I've learned to good use, as well as with the keys! Thanks so much Russell!"

"My 8 year old son loves to take drum lessons with Kismat. He is an excellent teacher and has a way with young students. He is very patient and can establish a good relationship with his students. Kismat is extremely proficient in music theory, and makes sure my kid gets all the basics first. But at the same time he keeps his lessons fun with jam sessions to my sons favorite songs. Kismat is a very motivated teacher, and will even do online lessons when schedule and snow days are an issue. I would HIGHLY recommend Kismat as a music teacher.

And by the way, have you seen Kismat performing live?! Oh man! Definitely catch his gigs around town. He will knock your socks off."

5 Important Tips for Soprano Singers to Keep in Mind

Are you a soprano? Keep your voice in great shape with these tips from Saint Augustine, FL voice teacher Heather L... Being born a soprano comes with both its perks and its challenges. On the one hand, we sopranos have a lot of the solos in choruses and choirs, and most of the highly dramatic arias and ballads. On the other hand, we tend to overwork and abuse our voice more often and get diagnosed with a lot more pathologies of the voice. Every voice type is special, and soprano singers ha …
