The violin has been a constant and enriching presence throughout my life, and I enjoy helping people engage with this instrument that is demanding and rewarding in equal measure. No matter your age or level of expertise, I would be happy to help you along as you discover new musical territory. I’m most fluent in the classical style, but am happy to explore other areas with you as well, from bluegrass to Broadway.

About Kris

I have been teaching the violin to students of all ages and abilities for close to twenty years, and have had great satisfaction in seeing them all grow and develop over time. Some of my younger students have gone on to the Interlochen Arts Camp, and one of my former adult students still makes an

I combine the styles of music that you prefer with some kind of method book for reading and theory. No purchasing of music is required. Normal lessons start with the previously assigned material, determining what we need to work on, new material, and ending with things to do at home.

Sean is great
NIMMI S.
Sean was a great teacher. I asked him if he knew how to teach Bollywood style Violin and even though he didn't he took the time to study it and learn just to teach me. I really appreciate that he was so open to trying so hard for his students. I think Sean is great!
Marc T.
Great first lesson. High hopes for follow lessons.

I self-taught myself guitar over 35 years ago; mostly forgotten. Sean began with establishing goals that would meet my goals. The feedback to me during the lessons was focused and delivered in a friendly manner. Progression was enhanced due to his manner and his approach to teaching. While this was the first lesson, I am looking forward to future lessons.

I've been working with Trevor for just over a year. His teaching goes beyond just dry technique and theory to answer the question "why am I doing this?" When you work with Trevor, there is purpose behind everything you do. He starts with your big picture goals and breaks them down into actionable steps that you can take feeling like it's going somewhere. This makes for way more efficient and exciting practice sessions. If you don't know exactly where you want to go with your playing, Trevor will help you find that as well.
Nathan S.
Trevor is an amazing teacher! He works with you to make a plan to learn whatever interests you. I can bring in any kind of music or style of playing and he will help me learn all of the elements. He is happy to go as far into theory as you want or stay more high level. Also has been very helpful in transitioning from learning tunes to writing and recording my own songs. Highly recommend.

"My two daughters are having a wonderful experience with Jesus. We've had about 7 lessons so far and I can't believe how great they are doing. He's a fantastic teacher, he's patient (especially with my restless 7 year old), encouraging and motivating (they love to practice!). We love his teaching style and how he incorporates history and information on various composers and his students, his passion for really shows. We are absolutely thrilled with Jesus."

I love how Molly teaches she's very attentive and you can tell that she has so much experience that each session is different and shapes your need. I also like her very honest way to teach, she's gently bold, just the right amount! I recommend Mollys work any time of the day ;-)"

"We are so glad we decided to get lessons with Michelle Kei and her partner Robert. They both are such talented performers and teachers and have made vocal training a wonderful experience for my teen daughter. Michelle and Robert and warm and extremely supportive people who teach with enthusiasm and a clear focus on the learner's priorities. My daughter needed coaching to prepare for an audition and earned the lead in the show! Michelle and Robert supported my daughter all along the way from the rehearsal period until performance week. I never imagined we would fine such wonderful and dedicated teachers on the internet. We are so glad we used TakeLessons to find them!"
