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
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.

"Jessica is by far the best Cello teacher I’ve ever taken lessons from. When I first began with my lessons I was admittedly terrible in many aspects, and couldn’t even hold a bow correctly. However, over just a few years I improved drastically. I now have managed to earn a place in the higher level of my school orchestra, a feat I never could’ve accomplished before I started taking lessons.
I cannot properly express just how much of a help Jessica is to those who want to learn cello and would recommend her any day."
Took Cello lessons from Jessica B.
"This teacher is amazing and always really helpful!

Kimberly is a great teacher. She is always prompt and ready for the lesson. If a student runs behind she makes sure to catch them up and follows up on their progress. I enjoy taking classes within the convenience of her home. She is very organized and I look forward to her lessons weekly."
Took Drum lessons from Kimberly A.
"Over the last 15 months I have taken over 50 lessons with Natasha. As an adult re-leaning piano I was a little nervous but immediately she made me feel comfortable, utilizing my previous experiences and my progression to challenge me continuously. She is so patient and will keep motivating you to reach your goal, whatever it may be. Natasha also writes everything down which is really helpful for review and shows her true knowledge of music theory and application. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher. I am the better for it!"

"Taylor likes her new teacher and is getting better everyday."

"My daughter has been taking music lessons from Ms. Brienne for about a year now and we absolutely love it. She is a very kind and a patient person. The compassion she shows to each of her students is outstanding. My daughter loves her music lessons. She has learnt so much in just a year and is excited to learn even more.
I highly recommend Brienne. She knows what she is doing and you can see the passion of music in her. She is a true gem and a sweetheart of a person."

"With more than 20 years experience, and the variety of ages and genres that Jon has taught, he provides a unique and personalized approach to each of his students.

"Lilly is fantastic! She is a great vocal coach and teacher. I am seeing improvement after every lesson."
Took Singing lessons from Lilly A.
"I love music and especially singing, but I never knew how to sing correctly. Stephen has taught me how to use my voice, and sing properly to a tune. He is very proactive and has a really good ear, so don't expect him to not hear when you are making a mistake or improperly using your voice on a particular note. I have confidently began to sing songs I thought I would not sing, and have surprised myself astoundingly. If your dream is to sing well, then this is definitely the instructor for you!"
