Evan's a fantastic teacher and I can't recommend him enough. I was a professionally trained pianist who was also badly taught some violin on the side and although I've been out of practice for years, Evan has gotten me back up to speed with my musical abilities in such a short amount of time. I've cycled through a number of music instructors in the past and Evan is the most patient teacher I've ever had. I get easily frustrated and he helps me work through the areas I get stuck on regardless of how many tries it takes. It's very apparent through his teaching that appreciation of the music is a priority. He's also flexible about rescheduling and cancellations, and I've enjoyed my lessons so much that finding the personal motivation to stay on top of my progress is never an issue when something comes up and a class has to be cancelled or postponed. Evan is both a superb musician and instructor and given a lot of my bad experiences in the music sphere in the past, he's done an amazing job of helping restore my appreciation and love for the art.
Sarah
Evan is a very gifted teacher. Since I started beginner lessons with him a few months ago, he has been able to teach me the complex techniques required for proper playing quickly and effectively while advancing my knowledge of music theory with his calm and encouraging teaching methods. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in lessons!
Eric
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.

Currently teaching in Arlington, VA and Washington DC area, I have been a private violin instructor for over 7 years. I have a great love for music and hope to be able to pass it on to anyone eager to learn.

Milena taught me everything with a firm but gentle hand, and really pushed me to be the best I could be. Her lessons were really personalized to what I was capable of, and although I hit some rough spots it was usually because of my own practice habits. All in all, I’m very glad I had her as my teacher.
Bryce
Milena really knows her stuff. She’s very consistent and really focused on teaching. If you follow her instructions you will improve. Thank you for the lessons Milena! I promise I will get better at practicing!
Rashmi
My daughter has blossomed under Milena and has developed a real love for playing the violin. Milena has very high standards for her students and is supportive and encouraging. My daughter looks forward to her lessons each week.

Private Violin Teacher

As a student of mine you can expect to improve your playing skills week to week. I can teach from the very first lesson on. Students will learn techniques to improve their playing and will play fun music. If you are interested in learning improvisation, I can help with that, too. I enjoy teaching violin, viola and cello.
I am most passionate about teaching students to become independent, critical thinking musicians who will be able to rely on their own knowledge to learn new music as they go along. I stress music reading, ear training, and strong fundamentals in playing. I am very encouraging, love spreading my love of music.

About Melissa

I began playing violin in elementary school, and immediately knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. My first words as a baby were lyrics because I sang before I spoke. I played violin until 11th grade when I fell in love with the sound of the viola. I studied music performance

I’m a former student of Melissa’s. She is very patient and I learned very quickly under her direction. I’m happy to see her teaching again. I’m anxious to continue learning the cello with Melissa.

I have been taking lessons with Melissa since the end of February. She is an excellent teacher and I have learned so much already! She is encouraging and makes me want to come back week after week to learn more!

Very professional and innovative techniques that guarantee success!
Welcker
Laura has been a great teacher for my 6 year-old daughter (starting taking lessons when she was 5). She is endlessly patient and has a perfect balance of fun and instruction in all her lessons. She helped us every step of the way--picking out the right rental instrument, finding extra workbooks that would be fun, coming up with ways to make practicing at home enticing. Laura is made to be a fiddle teacher--she has a obvious passion both for the music and sharing it with her students. My daughter left every lesson with Laura beaming with pride. I'd recommend anyone searching for a teacher to go with Laura!

I'm a Yale School of Music graduate with over 10 years of experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds. I would love to be a part of your journey into art and music!

One of the best parts of taking music lessons is that you gradually develop your own unique voice as a violinist, and I make sure I equip all my students with the tools they need to reach that point. There are few things more satisfying than perfecting the piece or song you're working on, or nailing the tough piece you've been stuck on. Let's take that journey together one step at a time, and let's have some fun along the way!
