Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching violin boht in the schools and privately for over ten years. I take both beginners and intermediate students. I ask that they are able to read well as reading music can be very difficult to a new student.
I use the books String Builder Book 1 for Violin and Strictly Strings Book 1 for Violin, and Music Ace Deluxe which is a fun way to learn their music theory on the computer.
The students will learn their lines and spaces for both the Treble Clef and Bass Clef as well as the note values in their first few lessons as well as the fingering for ope n and closed strings.
I ask that the students practice everyday except the day of their lesson for only 15 minutes as their fingers are not use to it yet. Once they have been playing for awhile then I ask that they start practicing a little longer each day.

Cynthia O.
A great passionate violin instructor.
Loquacious, but each moment of verbal conversation has a message that leads to the musical lessons of the day. I really appreciate her knowledge and skill. I am often reminiscent of my violin instructor as a child. Each session leaves me with the zeal to practice hard in eager preparation
for the next.
Robert
Kathy is a kind, patient and methodical teacher. She develops your piano skills with a structured program of theory and exercises geared toward constant improvement. She has helped me improve my piano technique throughout our time together. I have been able to play increasingly challenging pieces on a regular basis with her. I look forward to steadily improving my piano skills.

I have recently returned from a week long stay at the Sonatina Piano Camp in Bennington VT and would like to notify all those piano students who may read this review as to the wonderful experience attending this camp can be. The camp takes adult piano students at all piano skill levels from beginner to well accomplished. Students stay in shared rooms (2-4 persons) which includes a piano in every room. Attendance is usually 18- 27 persons. The mansion itself is home to approx. 30 pianos. All meals are provided (and are outstanding) as well as piano classes and 4 lessons with concert pianists or university piano professors. Ample time is provided to practice a performance piece for the end of week performance night. Master classes are given on several evenings for those wishing to perform a work in progress piece for the attendees and the camp owner providing a public lesson.
I have found that the attending student group to be extremely supportive to all other students especially to those experiencing performance anxiety. Repeating attendees (from all over the country) have formed lasting friendships among themselves which have endured for years. Eight week long sessions are given throughout the year. In addition there are summer sessions for school aged youth
and also 4 short week sessions for those wishing to try a sampling of the camp. This past January was my 3rd year attending the camp and I will be returning again next year. My experiences at the camp have been truly unforgettable. More information can be obtained at Sonatina.com

Zachariah
Natalie F was my orchestra director when I attended Oxford High school. Her direction has inspired me to become the best musician I can be as I attend undergraduate school for double bass performance. Natalie is amazing at setting up the experiences to know what it is like to be a musician. Also, she typically is very knowledgeable about current going on’s in the orchestral world. She has on multiple occasions given me or recommended me for professional gigs. I’ve known her long enough now to have seen her growth as a music educator and can tell you that she has a bright future in this regard.
Heather
Very detailed oriented. Excellent rapport with students and well connected in the professional and semi-professional music community giving students additional performing opportunities.
Lindsey
Natalie has been so helpful with our transition into online lessons. So grateful for all of her wonderful insight and vast knowledge of the instrument. Her lessons have been so fun and enjoyable!

Students can expect a relaxed, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for learning. The violin can be an intimidating instrument- you will make a lot of unpleasant sounds before you start sounding great- and that's okay! I'll be there to guide you and help you reach your goals.

If you're already an experience player, you can expect me "workshopping" your technique. We will analyze your form, practice patterns, and playing style, to ensure that you are growing and improving from the moment we begin. I will push you to become the most expressive player that you can become, but at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

What young students can expect:

- Preparing for entry into school orchestra
- Polishing up school orchestra repertoire
- Learning new material and scales
- Perfecting their technique
- Preparing for NYSSMA
- Preparing college audition tapes (I do have the ability to record these as well)
- Learning to play with confidence
- Learning vibrato

My goal is to create a positive learning environment that addresses a student's specific needs. I focus heavily on increasing a student's critical thinking skills so that they can easily problem solve during their practice sessions, increasing their ability to grow as a musician.

I have five years of teaching experience, with age groups pre-k to high school. Last year, I received my masters degree in violin performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Thanks for your consideration and I'm looking forward to working with you!

About Amanda

As someone who has been playing the violin for 18 years, I know that searching for a teacher that is amazing and effective is not an easy task. There are so many violin teachers out there that the choice can be overwhelming. How do you know that these teachers will be a good fit? Are they worth it?

I worked with Amanda for almost a year until I had to relocate outside the area and she has been very professional and has always been flexible with schedules. As an adult learner who took basic lessons in the past, she was very patient and helpful throughout the entire learning process from holding the bow to tuning the violin. Highly recommend and would definitely continue taking classes!

I've taught people who were just beginning violin (both children and adults) to students who were working on major concertos. What is most important to me as a teacher is that the student connect with the music and their instrument by being creative and personalizing my approach for the student. I also strongly strive to make performers out of violinists and to help them engage both audiences and themselves.

About Ha-eun

I have been surrounded by music my whole life and have played violin for 19 years. I went to high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy, obtained a BM in violin performance at Oberlin Conservatory and an MM at the Boston Conservatory. I have won competitions, played in professional orchestras, per

Ha-eun is a great violin teacher. I'm an adult learner that picked up the violin to try something different. I've played saxophone for 15 years, and have gone through many types of teachers. I can say Ha-eun is one of the best. She's experienced and patient. We started lessons in person and moved to online because of COVID19, and still going strong through the Suzuki book. She would be great to teach young or old alike!
Jim W.
Her help with bow hold, relaxation with the right hand and arm, will help me enjoy playing.
Kate
Ha-eun is fantastic! She is helping our 10 year-old daughter master a new piece she needs to learn within the next 2 weeks. Can't praise her enough! We do in person as well as internet lessons. During the lesson, Ha-eun is focused on the student and her passion for music and fondness of teaching others truly shows. Listening to her playing the violin to show how it should be done is a delight. We consider ourselves lucky to have such a great teacher.

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.."
