Private Violin Teacher

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

I do a variety of styles in music for the violin. I use whatever method (book or teaching style) is needed to teach what the student needs to learn. I have been teaching violin for 25 years. Depending on age, we will start in either Essential Elements or Suzuki. All beginners will start the bow after they can read the first 8 notes. All intermediates will be able to play 2 octave scales from 3 sharps to 3 flats as well as well into Wolfhart book 1. They will also be able to shift into third position cleanly and will be starting on vibrato. For Advanced players, we will be working on Concertos, sonatas, and partitas if they wish to go classical. IF they wish other styles, we will have started that in intermediate. All students will have an opportunity to go through the music development program, if they are interested.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

Private Violin Teacher

It is important to have teacher, student, and parents work together to see the accomplishments happen in the future. I make the lessons meaningful, so that my student can retain the information and practice effectively at home. My ultimate goal is to have my student think critically and listen carefully, so that they can become their own teacher.

About Richard

I started playing the violin when I was 12 years old. After practicing the violin productively, I was able to join the Jr. Philharmonic Orchestra of CA. I played with the group for 5 years. I also joined other community orchestras such as: Bellflower Symphony, Los Angeles Valley College Symphony, M

What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle? Some say it just depends on who is picking up the instrument . . . others might say a violin has strings while a fiddle has "strangs." But if you're looking to play a hoedown, a breakdown, a sweet and heartfelt waltz, or an old-timey reel, then you're looking for some FIDDLE lessons . . . and I am just the person to deliver! I've been a performing bluegrass fiddler since 2003 and have helped many students discover the joys and satisfaction of fiddling. See my profile under "fiddle" for more information.

About Julie

I've been performing as a fiddler in bluegrass bands since 2003, and have absolutely loved my own journey as a musician! A lifelong musician, I started on viola at age 9 and played in school orchestra through high school and on into college, even as I earned my degree in secondary English Education

Julie is absolutely wonderful! She’s extremely patient and very talented. I was only able to take fiddling lessons for a relatively short amount of time (less than a year) but I feel that I walked away with an excellent start. Can not recommend enough!
Jennifer
Julie is an amazing fiddle teacher! It is intimidating to take lessons as an adult and she made me feel very comfortable from day one. She is fun and has a laid-back, warm personality. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn fiddle!
Ally
Julie is an amazing teacher! She tells you what you need to improve in a gentle way and is always enthusiastic about any progress you make, no matter how small.

"At 40, violin is the first instrument I have ever learned, having taking lessons for seven months now with Autumn. Her clear instruction provides phenomenal motivation to intensely practice, and excel. I am humbled by her teaching of music theory in her lessons as well. Our orchestra group Autumn established has amazing synergy. As an engineer by trade, I have a deeper feeling of resonance and nature, through violin, thanks to Autumn."

"I recently start to learn Violin with Jonathan and learn a lot more than what I was expected! I was a little bit disappointed because I heard it's late to start violin in my age but since I start with Jonathan, he always been helpful and encourage me.

He's very knowledgeable and perfectly patient. He has the ability to listen and understand where I am in my learning curve and adjust his lessons to my skill level which I love about him.
Not only he knows his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. I always feel better about my playing when I leave his class.
What I like about his teaching style most; he hands you a key to learning more rapidly. I think this is the best kind of teach that you can find.

For these reasons I highly recommend him and I truly appreciate his time, patient, and knowledge.

I wish one day come to I play like him; clean, easy and professional :-) !"

"Brynn is patient and kind while always pushing my daughter to reach for her potential. Being in the military we move frequently enough that it has disrupted our daughters passion for the violin. Her current school lumps all kids together based on grade not skill and that has been "boring". We are happy to see not only new things learned but our daughter is back to finding songs and attempting to learn them and practicing during homework breaks. Brynn has been phenomenal and I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn and have fun."

"I have absolutely been delighted with my teacher Linda. At almost 50 years old, I was apprehensive about learning to play a new instrument, but she is so welcoming and encouraging. I have been taking lesson since the summer, and I look forward to seeing her every week. Even if I don't get in as much practice as I would like, She is understanding of life's commitments and never makes me feel bad. And despite my MANY questions, she takes the time to explain in detail so I can understand and incorporate the lesson in my playing. I never feel rushed during my lesson and can't wait to surprise her the next week to show her how much I've learned.."
