When it comes to violin I use both book and audio. I want to help my students learn to not only read the music but to also hear and feel it. I have been teaching this way for the last few years and found that my students have a deeper understanding of the music by learning the see with their ears. Each student is tasked with coming up with goals that they want to reach, goals their parents would like for them to reach and from there a personalized path for learning is created and followed.

About April

I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music

Even though most of my students are children between the age of 6 and 18, I love teaching adults because we can build up meaningful relationships and have intriguing conversations through music! I am fully equipped to teach from absolute beginners to semi-professionals who had chosen a non-music career path. Let's work together to achieve your goal, and make beautiful music.

About Keiko

I served as a violinist of the Attacca Quartet, a NY-based string quartet that performs all over the world from 2005 to 2019. In addition to concertizing, I teach students of all levels wherever I go; I have given lessons, masterclasses and lectures in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Pe

I have had the pleasure of learning from Keiko for the last several months--she is a wonderful teacher and provides helpful tips on improving my technique and skill level. While I've always been interested in picking up the violin, working with her has sparked an even greater interest and drive to do better. I am certain anyone will benefit from and enjoy taking classes with Keiko!

Hi, I'm Elizabeth! I teach private viola, violin, and piano lessons, and I also tutor music theory and history! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Music degree in Viola Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory, and just recently with my Master of Music degree from The Hartt School in Spring 2021. During my time at Shenandoah, I worked through the school as tutor, helping my peers through music history and theory courses. It always made me so happy seeing them improve in their classes!

I have been teaching viola, violin, and piano for four years, and it is my passion! It brings me so much joy to enrich my students' lives with music, and to watch their progress as they grow. While I don't expect the majority of my students to become professional musicians, I think it's vital that we all, as humans, learn the language of music so we can communicate and understand the world better. My biggest hope is that I make a difference in my students' lives.

As a professional musician myself, I enjoy working with students of all levels. Teaching a student to play better and develop musically helps you the student to enjoy making music for yourself or with an orchestra or a smaller ensemble in whatever style you enjoy. Lessons will be tailored to your needs. I will help you with posture, music reading left hand technique and right hand bowing to produce a beautiful tone. I help students to prepare school music, youth orchestra music, auditions for orchestras and solos, scales and etudes to improve their technique and ability. I can do online or in person lessons or a combination of both.

About Claudia

I've recently relocated to Reno from the Bay Area where I taught private students from age 7 through adults of any age. I also taught elementary strings for 27 years in North San Jose. I play professionally and work with Symphony San Jose, , Monterey Symphony and The Reno Phil. I have coached Youth

Melodies in your head and a song in your heart, but your voice isn't so great, or maybe it is. I can teach your to connect the physicality and express yourself with a Violin or Viola. (soprano or Alto). The tough part is learning hold to hold the violin properly. It takes a couple months to train the muscles a new stance. With my help your posture and breathing will become as one with the music It's not a myth, the violin is the most complex instrument to learn.

Comprehensive program with ear training and reading music.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

"Dustin Newbold has been my violin teacher for nearly eight years.
He is an accomplished musician and outstanding teacher, always patient, encouraging, and professional. He brought me through the very early stages of the violin as a beginner student, to now playing first violin in the community orchestra.
He has not only helped me become a better musician, but has been very knowledgeable in bringing me through the rough times of bowing, tuning, and even selecting the appropriate violin, strings, and accessories.
Dustin has the sensitivity to understand the student's level of ability and skill, and he creates a path for improvement. Lessons are always challenging and fun.
I highly recommend Dustin to any student who is serious about learning music, and especially to those to aim to be proficient on their instrument."

How Can I Make Practicing Violin Scales More Effective?

No matter how much students may groan when it comes to scales, they are very important for all beginners to know, particularly for the violin. Almost all of your knowledge about playing the violin starts with learning how to play scales, from reading sheet music to better understanding the fingerings. Of course, it is not nearly as exciting as playing one of the songs you love, but practicing scales will give you a strong foundation that will help you progress and improve. Violin scales are typ …

How Does Violin Restoration Work?

What is Violin Restoration? Violins are can be finely crafted instruments made by master luthiers with decades of experience or machine-made student models put together on an assembly line.
