Great teacher. The best!

Zebie is a fantastic teacher. He is very patient and is excellent at finding new methods to teach techniques which I am struggling with at the time. Though I am only 3 weeks in (from being pretty much a complete beginner), I can already tell I am making progress. I am very excited to continue my lessons and improve. I highly recommend taking lessons from Zebie.

My overall experience is wonderful. Zibi is not only a great teacher but also knows how to grow interest for music among kids. He is very friendly and having profound knowledge of all kinds of musical instruments.

Highly impressed with the way Mrs. Entela teaches! She truly helped my son advance with the violin but made sure he understood everything along the way. Highly recommend her!
Sarah
My daughter took violin lessons with Mrs. Entela and she was a very productive teacher. My daughter advanced tremendously within a small amount of time and I was very impressed with how Mrs. Entela worked. Marvelous work!
Aditi
I took viola lessons from Mrs. Entela and had already played prior to meeting her. She taught me so much within such a short period of time. Highly recommend lessons from her!

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

What adult ...

Violin was my first instrument, and it served as the foundation for everything else I did in music. Playing the violin teaches a high degree of musical sensitivity and I'm always excited to cultivate these qualities in any student that wants to learn. When I teach violin, I try to tailor to the needs of the student while teaching...

-Good intonation, which is one of the fundamental challenges of the instrument
-Playing by ear, an especially important skill for an instrument that can be used in almost every type of music on the planet
-Vocal phrasing, which is learning to use all the parts of the instrument to make it "sing."

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

Jonathan is incredibly skilled, a great teacher, fun, and very patient with our gregarious and somewhat distracted 9-year old boy. He has creative, tailored teaching techniques, will try new things, but also keeps our son motivated and progressing. He responds perfectly and patiently to my son when he veers off task, and gets him back on task. We are absolutely thrilled and couldn't have found a better teacher.
Jackie G.
My son has special needs related to an anoxic brain injury. This can create frustration with simple things like learning a new chord that feels funny or is difficult to move your fingers to. He always checks in with us to see what concerns we have and then, helps us by offering suggestions on how to make something easier or less frustrating to learn. I think Jonathan does a good job of meeting us where we are. Jonathan is patient with both of us. Today, he talked to my son about practicing communicating so we can understand how to help him learn. He talked to me about it being ok to break away from the timing and to hit chords at the same time as my son so the song can come together.
Jackie G.
Jonathan is flexible and easy to work with. My son has some struggles as a result of an anoxic brain injury. Jonathan is very understanding and patient with my son. He has also helped me with advice and suggestions on how to work with my son. We love the spirit of the ukulele and the good vibes it has.

"I took violin lessons from Kris for nearly two years, until moving out of LA. He is an extremely talented musician and teacher. During these lessons, my violin technique and musical expression both considerably improved. Kris is very patient, and able to teach multiple methods to successfully master various violin techniques (such as vibrato). Through implementing improvisation into the lessons, Kris can also bring out the student's musical creativity and confidence, which not only helps aspiring composers, but guides violin students in adding expression to the music they're currently learning. He encourages students to challenge themselves, but effectively teaches all of the techniques necessary to accomplish their musical goals.

He is also a brilliant composer, and is an excellent composition teacher as well! Although my lessons were mostly focused on violin, he provided much useful advice for improving my compositions for orchestra and symphonic band as well.

I highly recommend Kris as an instructor for music students of any proficiency level!"

"Dr. Olevsky is inherently able to discern between problems related to technique, versus those associated with internal barriers. He infuses his knowledge of sports psychology into his teaching, giving him the unique ability to address the mental roadblocks that prevent students from unlocking their maximum potential. Dr. Olevsky takes the time during lessons to advise students on how to overcome such barriers, providing them with guidance on how to consistently achieve peak performance. Dr. Olevsky not only possesses the extensive knowledge in musical theory and practice required for teaching students at the university level, but also the personality and temperament to mentor young musicians. Due to his genuine character, quick-witted humor, and sense of self-discipline, he is both well liked and respected by students. Needless to say, Dr. Olevsky is an exceptional violin instructor whom I hold in the highest regard."

"Great violin teacher. As an adult student, I was looking for a teacher with good qualifications and teaching ability and Kan has met all expectations. She tailors lessons to fit your needs and she was very understanding of my weird work schedule. I sought lessons to learn proper technique and mechanics and feel that with her lessons I've definitely improved from when i started and am on the right track moving forward. She relates her instructions to things you're familiar with so that you can easily understand how and why things are done. She is very active during lessons whether its playing background with you or making sure you're not swinging your shoulder. She is as interested in your progress as you are."

Shaky Arm Syndrome: Violinists and Stage Fright

It's one thing to experience stage fright.  But imagine being up on stage, trying to hold your violin steady and place your bow correctly, when your arm is shaking like a leaf during the fiercest Chicago winds. The mind is a powerful thing, and the physical effects that nerves can have on the body are sometimes overwhelming. Let one negative thought slip, and you might find your heart racing, your palms sweating, and your shoulders tensing - none of which are good for your playing. So how …
