Violin Lessons in Miami, FL

Learning to play the violin is extremely popular as a first or second instrument for students of all ages. This is probably because of the instrument's versatility, as well as the beauty of its sound. And with the right teacher, it’s easy to get started learning to play!

It can be difficult to begin learning the violin alone, due to the importance of posture, technique and other aspects that can only be taught by a qualified instructor. Similarly, intermediate students often experience problems that are hard to rectify, or struggle to learn new skills such as the different hand positions, vibrato and harmonics. Taking private violin lessons can make a huge difference, and TakeLessons is here to help!

All our teachers for our Miami violin lessons complete a rigorous application process, as well as a yearly background check, so you’ll feel safe and confident in your decision. Your lessons are fully customized, and you can select the teacher that best fits with your experience level, interests and goals. Moreover, your first lesson comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee, making your experience risk-free.

The violin is no longer simply a classical instrument. It is used in all styles of music, ranging from rock to jazz. Wherever your interests lie, we can help you along the way. Get started today - book online, or call us to speak with a friendly student counselor!

Monique W.

Miami Beach, FL

A one hour lesson includes 10 minutes scales, 15 minutes etude or exercises and 35 minutes piece. I teach sizuki method up to book 6 or whenever the student wants to switch over to concertos

I recommend sitt scale book and kaiser etudes.

About Monique

I began playing violin at age 4 over 20 years ago and have been teaching since age 17. I studied at the Newark Community School of the Arts for 12 years and in the Greater Newark Youth Orchestra where I played at the New Jersey PAC and Historic Symphony Hall. I've taken master classes from John Smith (teacher to Regina Carter), and taught by global performer Aiko Goto and several teachers from Juliard including Hiroshima Shimura, I have performed at festivals and weddings and taught across the country in orchestras, quartets and music camps. Most of my teaching has been with private students a
ge range has been from 3-67

*** Lesson Details ***
I specialize in beginner and intermediate instruction and music theory (how to hold, how to read music, how to play by ear). I teach using the Suzuki method as well as a creative process to write, read, and execute your own music. Solo pieces, holiday music, chamber quartet or orchestral arrangements etc. I have years of experience teaching adults because I believe it's never too late to learn and all people should have access to learn the arts. I teach out of my studio in center city on south beach and there is free parking, and I can travel to your home on miami beach. I am the only south beach violin teacher.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music stand, chairs, additional seating for parents or rec room is next door for parent and other child(ren).

Great at explaining in a way where a child or some of us more chronologically advanced students can understand. This makes it exciting to learn.

The lesson was good considering that I haven't picked up my violin in about 7 years and instructor was knowledgeable but parking was kind of difficult for a Saturday afternoon so hopefully weekdays will be better.

Alicia B.

Miami, FL

About Alicia

Alicia has been playing the violin since she can remember thanks to her very talented musical family. Because of their efforts she received her first exposure to loving and teaching music at an early age through attending and later assisting her mother's Suzuki string program. They also afforded her the opportunity to learn with some of the finest violin teachers Miami has to offer.
A proud alumni of Miami's public arts programs, including those of Southwood Middle School, Coral Reef Senior High and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, Alicia encourages all of her school-age students t
o explore their options of participating in the various youth arts organizations in the community.
In addition to her 15+ years training in violin technique and classical repertoire, she also has had almost 10 years of classical piano instruction and has had the privilege to perform classical, jazz, blues, latin and pop music from coast to coast and in Europe.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have found that students thrive in a curriculum that's to their pace, fun and conducive to creative thought. So I'm a fairly easygoing teacher. I wont chew you out, won't force you to practice scales on your head while you hold your breath. But I will level with you: Music takes commitment. The good news? It's really fun.
So, let me show you the joy and reward of learning music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room transferred to music room: piano, computer, music stand and library, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect student to have instrument, music stand, any appropriate books, and tuner (or home access to computer/internet)

*** Specialties ***
A Suzuki method influenced program that introduces classical music and theory step-by-step while incorporating fun games and your favorite songs.
Will also drill you on music theory and help you nail your first audition and performance.

Adrian B.

Miami, FL

My teaching purpose is to instill a music appreciation while showing the technical aspects, reaching for a deeper way of transposing the even the most distinct feelings into music. To share my musical and educational experience with others, to exceed all others expectations, as well as mine, to fulfill my dreams, and create stronger principles, while reaching personal growth.

About Adrian

I started studying violin at age 7 and felt in love with the instrument ever since. I have been playing and teaching for the past 20 years and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with music enthusiasts of any ages and levels. If you’re thinking about taking violin lessons or just want to improve your playing, be prepared to find benefits in several surprising ways beyond just gaining the ability to play beautiful music on a new instrument.

He's been my son's private teacher over an year. He is very pleasant and patient. My 15-year old boy is really enjoying learning from him. My son is in Suzuki book 5 and joining in Great Miami Youth Symphony. Adrian helps him for preparing an audition or concert music as well as correcting skills. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and would like him to teach my son as long as he can.

I went like every other parent seeking to spark the curiosity of my almost 5 year old daughter, who has always shown interest. We found exactly that and more. Ms. Rosemarie is super patient, loving and knowledgeable. Unfortunately we live a little far now and have to stop but hope to find someone just like Ms. Rosemarie to continue what we started here. I will definitely recommend the place and Ms. Rosemarie to anyone interest in piano lessons.
