Violin:
A wooden stringed instrument in the violin family; it is the smallest and highest-pitched. The violin typically has four strings tuned in perfect fifths, and is most commonly played by drawing a bow across its strings, though it can also be played by plucking the strings with the fingers (pizzicato). Violins are important instruments in a wide variety of musical genres. They are most prominent in the Western classical tradition and in many varieties of folk music. They are also frequently used in genres of folk including country music and bluegrass music and in jazz. Electric violins are used in some forms of rock music; further, the violin has come to be played in many non-Western music cultures, including Indian music and Iranian music. The violin is sometimes informally called a fiddle, particularly in Irish traditional music and bluegrass, but this nickname is also used regardless of the type of music played on it.
Lessons always start with the basics: Tuning, hand/bow

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Online Violin Teacher

Hi! I'm a professional violinist and passionate educator with 12 years of experience teaching students of all levels and ages. I'm classically trained but also have a wide range of repertoire from Early Baroque to 20th century music. I'm a compassionate and encouraging teacher who loves to bring joy to each lesson. My focus is to help each student achieve their personal goals while retaining curiosity as well as excitement through their musical journey.
For beginners, I teach mainly out of Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books in addition to other materials as needed. We will start our journey from looking at our posture, bow hold, open strings, and music reading skills. Then we will progress to playing our first songs and cultivate our practice regiments. I aim to maintain a balance between challenges and enjoyment in my lesson planning. We will acquire a solid foundation for progressively learning all of your desired repertoires.

Hi everyone! My name is Amy and I'm currently pursuing my doctorate degree in Violin Performance at University of North Texas. I started the violin at age of three and have been teaching private lessons since 2008. Besides teaching, I actively participate in competitions, music festivals, orchestra

I am very grateful for the time I studied with Amy Wang. I studied with her for one year. She helped me immensely with my technique, and helped me to play and perform my first class I solo. I would definitely recommend her!
Kimberly
As an adult, rusty at the violin, but wanting to get back into playing and serve as a basic violin instructor , Amy really helped me with my basics. Position, bow handling, and sound production, are all very important to getting back into the routine of playing and Amy gave me a well explained, approachable, and thorough set of lessons, that I refer to often .

"He is the best violin teacher I have ever had! I've wanted to learn since I was a kid, but I was not motivated with my previous teachers and now as an adult beginner I am finding it easier than I thought. Mr. Sal breaks it down so that it isn't as hard to learn anymore and I am making leaps and strides. These last 6 months have gotten me ready to play Jingle Bells for my family over the holidays along with my other pieces and I am excited to show them what I've learned. Thank you Mr. Sal and I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to learn the violin to just start with the best teacher I know!"
