I've been playing violin for 20 years now, & I've been teaching music to children & adults at schools & privately for 5 years. Everyone has a different learning style, & I pride myself on being able to teach many different personalities & students. More than anything, I believe learning should be fun & bring you joy! So to that end, I work to make sure my students have a great time learning, & walk away with new information & skills every lesson. I'd be happy to help you on your musical journey!

I had to learn the basics of violin for a film I am working on, and was only able to come in for three lessons with a Melissa - but let me just say, she was amazing! I can’t believe how far I came in just three sessions with her. She is so easy to be around and super accommodating in terms of scheduling. If I decide to pick back up with violin after I finish the film, I definitely will be back to Melissa. Thanks so much!!

I enjoy learning from Melissa, she is very patient with a warm personality. She always has great techniques to teach me. I feel like I'm learning and making progress with her instructions.

Private Violin Teacher

Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and I would like to teach my students what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

Philip is an excellent teacher and gave me very heloful pointers on my technique. I am an advanced player and have performed semi-professionally several times but hadn't learned proper technique in the past.

I plan to continue with him regularly to improve my technique and skill level.
Kennadi S.
Philip was so friendly and patient, and made my 7 year old very comfortable with her first lesson. He really knew how to speak on her level and his instruction was very positive and motivating. My daughter left the lesson very excited to start practicing what he showed her, and we can't wait till the next lesson!

Thank for getting me back into playing Max!! After sometime off, I really didn’t think I would ever enjoy learning to play the violin again, but your clear instructions make me feel like I am working towards something that actually pays off! I’ve already seen a big improvement in my playing and am enjoying the learning process so much. Looking forward to learning Book 4!!

Private Violin Teacher

Super excited to share my knowledge of the violin with young students of all ages! I have had the privilege to be mentored by Ruggiero Ricci, Alice Schoenfeld, Charles Castleman, and Ida Bieler (the latter two being their teaching assistant). Currently, I am studying with Boris Kuschnir in Vienna, Austria. I have been teaching for the past 10 years with my students getting into schools such as Juilliard, Indiana University, New England Conservatory, Boston University, Carnegie Melon, and more. I truly believe in the instruction of good technique as a foundation for all rising violinists. With the musical background of both American and European pedagogues, I can contribute to the upbringing of a well-rounded musician in both their musical understanding and instrumental technique. I understand that each musician is different and I look forward to exploring your music through your sound and voice!

I started taking from Miclen to prepare for graduate school auditions. What an indispensable resource, with his immense knowledge of the repertoire as well as keen insights on what it takes to flourish as a classical artist. Drawing on his rich background studying in the US and Europe, Miclen has expanded my interpretive ideas. He is a rigorous teacher, yet one of the most kind and encouraging individuals I’ve ever worked with; he more than goes the extra mile! I couldn’t recommend him more highly!!!

Elisabeth has been teaching our 12 year old son piano for several years. She is very methodical in working through curriculum in her instruction, but also flexible to include other “fun” songs that he wanted to play to help keep him motivated. She is very patient and efficient during the lesson time. I may add that my husband is a classical pianist so we were looking for a high quality instructor. We also appreciate that she is flexible with changing lessons times on occasion when our schedule may change for a season. We’ve been very pleased with the progress our son has made under her teaching.

If your searching for an amazing teacher your search is over. Elisabeth has been wonderful violin teacher to my son! She makes corrections without being critical..that's huge!! We highly recommend her!!

Elisabeth is helping me realize a dream of learning to play both the cello and the violin in my not-so-youthful years. I deeply appreciate her patience and encouragement, her knowledgeable and confident guidance. Each lesson session is a joy because of Elisabeth's upbeat, positive outlook and her genuine desire to see and hear my playing abilities improve.
