Private Violin Teacher

Watching my students overcome challenges and develop their own musicality is what makes this the best job in the world. I truly believe that anyone can learn music just like anyone can learn a language. I most enjoy meeting new people and discovering what they're passionate about as well as how they learn best. I pride myself on my problem solving skills, positive attitude, patience, resourcefulness, and creativity.

I have a peaceful home studio in Laurel, MD, but can also travel to students for in home lessons or give lessons online via webcam. I prefer to teach in my studio, however, because I have a wide variety of resources available to enhance your learning experience. (For example, I can't haul my 88 key Yamaha piano to and from your house every week ;)

I think I differ from other teachers in two distinct ways.
First, I don't give up. I will pick your brain and try to communicate musical concepts to you in any way, shape or form until you leave the lesson feeling like ...

About Carly

Hello! My name is Carly Cascio. My relationship with music started when I was just 6 years old. My mother signed me up for suzuki violin lessons and I hated them so much I threw my violin on the ground. 18 years later and here I am now, teaching violin for a living! I really didn't foresee mysel

Carly makes lessons interesting and fun for my 10 year old son. My son is high energy, and yet he is able to concentrate, focus and enjoy!

We plan to continue lessons on line with Carly during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Aaron
Carly is an amazing teacher. I've been her student for about a year and a half now and I have learned so much from her. She's the kind of teacher who helps you understand the lesson through various ways to truly make you get it.

I have learned quite a number of songs that I have always wanted to learn to play but thought I couldn't because the difference in skill was too great. I am a huge fan of Lindsey Stirling and because of Carly, I have learned how to play Take Flight, First Light, Brave Enough, River Flows in You, Hallelujah, Beyond the Veil. Take Flight was the song that made me want to learn the violin and I am ecstatic to say that I can play it.

If you decide you want to learn the violin or another instrument that she plays, you can't go wrong with Carly!

I've been teaching violin for 14 years and my students have gone on to win top prizes at the Solo & Ensemble Festival, featured soloists, and become music majors! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few songs and read music, and as time goes on you'll be able to develop a beautiful tone! I typically use the Suzuki books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: audio recordings, and an extensive music library. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Robert was nervous for his first lesson. Annie’s teaching style set him at ease very quickly. She was clear and concise with her instructions. Very hands on as needed: adjustment of violin, bow , hand and arm placement,etc. I, as Robert’s parent, was very impressed with Annie.

Annie is a wonderful piano instructor. She is very patient and makes you feel comfortable and confident as you attempt new challenges.

I love taking the time to get to know each student on an individual level, and finding what gets them excited about making music. With over ten years of experience teaching students ages five through adulthood, I know each person learns differently and has different goals. I will work with you to come up with achievable goals, while also pushing you to discover how to play in a way unique to you!

I have been beyond pleased with Kate. Her energy is calm and encouraging and allows the student to creatively discover how learning works for them. As an adult, having never played ANY instrument before, Kate has been the perfect nurturing guidance on this journey. I've also seen her perform outside of lessons and she is clearly classically trained but pushing the boundaries as an what an artist "should be" which I love as someone learning a skill, to see all perspectives. Kate is on time and professional and I have nothing but positive to say about working with her!!!
Amy
My granddaughter (age 13) has been studying violin with Kate for the past two years and I honestly felt as though we'd struck gold after the first lesson. Kate is smart, talented, patient, and an all-around lovely person who has elevated my granddaughter's music studies.

Online Violin Teacher

Have you been playing for a long time, or have you never picked up the instrument before? Whether you are a child or an adult, I have a style of teaching for you. I've been playing since I was a child and have a special place in my heart for the is instrument. I actually began learning from a fiddle player and trained classically later. If you want to learn how to succeed in playing this rewarding and satisfying style, this is the place for you.
Are wondering why every time you hit a certain note, it squeaks, or crunches, or sounds glassy? Or maybe you can't quite read the notes. Perhaps you are no stranger to the instrument, but need improvement of musicianship, expression, etc. Let me help you master the skills you're trying to achieve. With my help, you can make breathtaking music!

About Kimberly

I grew up in a household of 9 where music was always center stage. We would sing as a family in different venues and were often called the VonTrapp family. I have enjoyed singing and performing from a young age. I began studying flute at age 8, after scoring highest in the harmony listening exam an

I have been working with Kim for a few weeks and I have learned a tremendous amount and can hear the difference every week as I progress. I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well. I actually tried a few vocal teachers and Kim with her wisdom and experience made it simple who to go with!!
Diana O.
Ensures one has a strong foundation of violin knowledge. Patient and kind. Love this instructor!
Kathryn R.
Kim can teach you or your child, no matter where you are!

I was 30 when I decided to rekindle my love for the violin. I hadn’t played since before YouTube was invented, and I was skeptical about learning violin online. By the first lesson, Kim had already corrected poor habits I didn’t know I had, just after hearing me play a few scales. She adjusted her teaching style to my personality so seamlessly that I felt I was just getting pointers from a dear violinist friend whose advice is always spot-on. Weekly practice never felt like work, because Kim tailored my assignments to my goals. Before I knew it, I was playing complex concertos I could never do in high school. I started out being able to play just one major scale. Within 10 months, I was in Suzuki Book 4!
I can’t say enough about Kim’s expert teaching skills. During a sight-reading of a very difficult piece, I became so frustrated that I wanted to stop the lesson and try again later. Kim encouraged me until I had gotten all the way through, and pointed out what I could learn from my performance. When I had time to calm down, I realized that Kim can do this for any student; adults, children, and adults whose inner child throws a tantrum when they’re frustrated by a musical challenge. :-)

Teachers like Kim are rare, and worth their weight in gold. I learned so much more than violin fundamentals through my lessons with her. I’m convinced Kim can teach anyone, of any age—even through an online platform.

Linda
Chris was very patient with me. I had special challenges due to be an older student that started later in life. We communicated very well--asking and answering questions. Chris knew how to help me as I am challenged with intonation. He did not let me slide which is an excellent quality in an instructor.

When I had questions or problems that we were not able to figure out between the two of us he went to his instructor to ask. He was not afraid to admit that he didn't know. He respected me as a scientist who had challenging questions.

Overall, I highly recommend Chris as an instructor for viola.
Zach
Chris is super knowledgeable, flexible to make lessons work over Skype, and attentive to make sure the lessons are tailored to what I am trying to learn as a growing pianist. I’ve had a great experience, grown a lot, and look forward to more lessons!

"Out of all of my teachers that I've had over the years, Jill has given me the most thorough lessons I've ever had. Most of my teachers have focused heavily on repertoire, and ignored the basics of scales and etudes. As a result, I always found them tedious, but Jill breaks everything down into smaller pieces so I don't get bored or overwhelmed. She always comes up with new ways of working on old techniques that help me overcome old, deep-seated habits and difficulties."

"Best Violin Teacher Ever!

I'm currently having violin classes with Kan for half a year right now, and so far I think she is the best violin teacher I have ever met. With a variety of effective teaching techniques, Kan can always help me to improve my violin skills in many ways. She teaches me a lot of advanced finger exercises which is really helpful and efficient. Another amazing thing of her is that she can ALWAYS notice what your problem is and tell you right away so that you will no longer make that mistake any more. As an adult learner, She is SUPER patient with me and pays a lot of attention to my questions. Otherwise, she is a professional violinist and so knowledgeable and helpful as a great teacher. I'm so happy to have a class with her every week and will definitely recommend her to my friends who wants learn violin!"
