Private Violin Teacher

I teach children starting at 7 years old, all the way to adults. I teach each player proper playing technique that can be used for classical playing, fiddle-playing and pop music. I also teach music theory and sheet reading alongside violin technique. I tailor each lesson to the students wants and needs.

I have been playing violin for 20 years and have been trained in classical and Fiddle style playing. I also have a full knowledge of Music Theory and how to read sheet music. I believe that learning should be fun and rewarding.

Private Violin Teacher

I am an experienced teacher of 16 years! I thrive on finding each student's specific learning style and cultivating a positive and productive learning experience within that. I apply consistent and focused energy in getting my students to strive for their best, and I aim to inspire them to respond in turn with the same focused and accurate effort.

I teach using a modified Suzuki method. This means that, while I do subscribe to Suzuki's "mother tongue" approach, I also believe that education on an instrument requires literacy from a young age. I have discovered in my years of teaching that an early ability to read notes and understand musical theory and form is not a handicap to a student's development, but rather a benefit to the student gaining a richer, fuller understanding of their instrument and music in general.

I believe that every person can be taught, that parental involvement is crucial in the development of musicians from a young age through the high school years, and ...

I’ve been taking online lessons from Connie for 6 months now and couldn’t be happier. She helped me develop a good foundation and has been so encouraging along the way! I love that she pays attention to detail and goes out of her way to write weekly lesson notes, make recordings for me, adds in music theory and is helping me towards my first exam. Connie’s passion for music and teaching is evident and I’m thankful I found her online!

Ingrid Anderson
I was lucky to take lessons with Marisa for two years during my undergraduate music degree at CU Boulder. Not only is Marisa a wonderful and knowledgeable violinist, she is a intuitive and warm teacher. Marisa took my musicality to the next level and helped me develop proper, tension-free technique. Marisa's advice helped me to practice more effectively on my own, and I always felt inspired after our lessons. I would highly recommend Marisa as a teacher for violinists of any level!
Kylie
Dr Marisa has been teaching me for three years now. She is very good at explaining the pieces, and giving a short history lesson about how it was developed. This helps me learn and memorize the piece faster for recitals and performances. Despite the setbacks of COVID-19, she has still continued being an excellent teacher for me.
Kendalia
Throughout my entire music experience, Marisa is one of the best violin teachers I've ever had. She taught me how to listen and improve the sound I was producing, correct my bow hold, overcome my performance anxiety, and much more. I would highly recommend Marisa, no matter what your experience is with the violin.

Kate is an incredible teacher - I cannot recommend her highly enough. I have played violin off and on for almost 30 years, and Kate has worked carefully and thoughtfully to help me with basics that I didn't realize I could improve on that have already changed my playing for the better. Kate has a positive and encouraging approach that inspires confidence and joy in practicing. She is able to clearly break down each element of fingering, shifting, and bowing when I am having trouble. She is a gem and I am delighted to revisit my love for the violin under her guidance.
natalie
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.

I have been taking lessons with Ashlyn for about 7 months now and she has truly been the best violin teacher I could have hoped for! She is not only good at teaching and helping me improve my playing, but she is also a really nice person and we get along very well. I look forward to every lesson and always learn a lot and have fun. Unfortunately, I leave for college soon so I will no longer be able to take lessons with Ashlyn, I will miss her a lot.

We are very happy with Ms. Ashlyn. She has a great manner with my 8 year old, who looks forward to her violin classes and wants to practice for her teacher :)
