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.

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.

Janet
We were so pleased with Katherine and feel fortunate that we found a teacher for our daughter who not only plays professionally, but who studied with two of the great touring and recording pros out there. Katherine's skills as a violinist are top-notch, and her ability to connect with my daughter, teach her advanced skills, plus motivate her to want to advance in her school orchestra was so important. Katherine is a great violinist and that inspired my daughter to want to play better Its rare to find a teacher who is at the top of her profession who loves the violin and music so much that she makes her students feel special and important. Katherine is a joy to be around and its made such a difference to us.

I like teaching interactively. I guide students to think not just about how, but also about why. Students benefit the most from self-teaching, after all, the teacher is not with the student 100% of the time.

About Jay

I’m a doctoral violinist currently studying at James Madison University. I love teaching and have a lot of teaching experience. I also perform a lot as an ensemble player. I’ve served leadership positions at various symphony/opera/musical orchestras.

Online Violin Teacher

I teach all levels of violin. For the lower levels, I use the repertoire from the Suzuki books, but I don't use the actual method. I teach with a more traditional approach. After the student improves in skill, I move them into the traditional scale and etude books along with repertoire that pertains to the level of playing. My number one requirement for my students is scales and etudes. This is the basis of how to play your instrument well. I try to instill good habits in my students and proper technique to present a clean and full sound. I have my students analyze what it is they are playing instead of just playing the notes. With that, I encourage them to LISTEN to the music they are playing. A musician needs to hear the many complexities and pull the emotion out to the listener and to themselves.

"Mark Williams is a awsome violin teacher.

Mark Williams was my son, Nicholas' private violin teacher at his elementary school. My son enjoyed lessons and he learned a great deal of aquired skills he needed to play violin. Mr. Williams was able to share his enthusiasm of playing violin with my son. He made my son be more serious when he practiced violin. He allowed my son to have a private concert which encouraged him and gave him confidence. Mr. Williams was a very friendly and encouraging teacher who is able to make his students confident violin players."

"Jill is great!

My husband and I were both delighted at how much progress our daughters (at the time aged 6 and 4) made with the violin under Jill’s careful guidance. Jill is very good with children, and in each lesson she gently engaged her students’ attention on the music and on learning new techniques. The result was that both of our daughters were focused and made real progress every single week.

We found that the Suzuki method of learning has worked very well for our daughters. Both of them (now aged 10 and 8) have gone on to play several in junior violin ensembles and take real pleasure and pride in their playing. They love music, and much of that is down to the wonderful early grounding they received from Jill."

"The violin teacher is great.

We satisfy with the violin teacher. First of all, she is very professional. She masters music theory and she has a lot of performance experience. Then, she teaches in proper way and she is patient with students. She focuses on not only practicing but also listening. She corrects students’ wrong playing actions patiently. Finally, she can teach my daughter in both English and Chinese (Mandarin). Therefore, my daughter has a rapid progress in playing violin."
