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!

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.

Stephanie J.

Miami, FL

About Stephanie

I love to teach music as much as I love to perform.
Be sure to check out my photos and recordings!

I currently am a Graduate Teaching Assistant at FIU where I am completing my masters in music performance for cello.

As a young girl I began taking private piano lessons which eventually led me to participate in the string program at my Elementary School. Not knowing anything about string instruments I was handed a Cello by the Conductor, and I've been playing ever since!
I joined the local symphony GMYS (Greater Miami Youth Symphony) throughout my high school career which not only boo
sted my orchestral playing but was a great motivation to continue playing.
In the midst of my college career I became inspired to share my knowledge of music with young and adult students.
My goal as a teacher is to motivate and inspire students with music whether they're beginning or advanced players, and of any age.

Some well known performance I've done:
-The 2011 Zumba conference in Orlando, with Artist Wyclef.
-Univision performing with such names as Cristian Castro on Sabado Gigante, and on the Cristina show.
As well as on Nuestro Navidad 2012.
-In 2005 I performed with GMYS at Carnegie Hall in New York.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student works at a different pace, so I like to create a study plan unique to each student that will provide the best results. I like to challenge the students and emphasize critical thinking.
It's not enough to simply tell the students what's correct or not, but to help them understand why.
From beginning to advanced students, we will work on proper technique, musicality, and efficient practicing.
I want to show students and parents the joy behind music, but there are no shortcuts, motivation is a must!

*** Studio Equipment ***
All you need is the instrument and books!
I have a music stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a music stand, so make sure to bring the music!
A metronome and Tuner is essential.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Technique for a classical instruments. Once you learn the technique, you can play any style you enjoy, not limited to classical music.

About Marcela

Music is life!!!

I began music instruction at the age of 4 playing violin, piano and taking voice lessons, and I have not stopped since. I graduated doing a double major (Voice and Violin) from Universidad de Santander, Colombia, and now I am part of the Internationally Acclaimed Manny Perez Vocal Studio.

In the fall of 2012, I had the fantastic opportunity to work with one of the greatest opera stars of all times, Dame Montserrat Caballe, in Spain, who gave me fantastic reviews and compliments on the vocal technique and interpretation of the bel canto repertoire.

I was also, the Gran
d Winner in the opera competition "The Majesty of the Voice" on a worldwide transmitted program presented by Univision. I have also been granted with the title of Colombian Cultural Ambassador three times and have been invited to Music Festivals in Brazil, Mexico, Spain and various cities in the United States.

I played violin in orchestras and in different music ensembles (violin and piano) for about 15 years, and have also performed in both musical theater and opera, which has given me a broader range of understanding in Music, Artistry and Interpretation.

I have performed with Opera Companies such as Vero Beach Opera, Gold Coast Opera, Opera Atelier, Gratelli Opera Company, and as a part of Florida Grand Opera, and in different opera concerts such as Kampong Opera Concert,Steinway Piano Concert Series, Opera Tonight, Night of Opera Concerts –concert series organized by the city of Doral-, and the New York Night of Music.

As you can see I have a great deal of experience and expertise in many areas, and I look forward to sharing all of this and more with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
First of all, we need to start with motivation and commitment!
I guarantee that you will have fun while learning during the time you're with me! I know lessons can be intimidating at first, but they have to be fun and that's part of my job.
I teach in both Spanish and English, according to my student preferences.

We will start recognizing what materials are good for you, based on method/technique systems, songs and performing pieces, and preferences that you may have.
We will make special efforts to invest in each student’s particular needs and accommodate to the system that work best in your case, utilizing a variety of tools such as flash cards, rhythm exercises with a metronome, and supplemental workbooks, e.g. ear training, sight reading, note spelling, etc. as necessary.

Within the first months, we'll be learning how to read music and understand the language of it. We'll learn how to play or sing some of your favorite songs and learn some that you might not know.

For the intermediate and advanced students, we will focus on a better understanding of Music Theory and Interpretation and how to apply it while performing. Soon, you'll be learning and performing pieces you dreamed of!
For singers, we'll learn about vocal techniques, breathing, getting your best vocal sound and discovering how to take a song to its potential! We'll also learn performance techniques, how to work with a microphone, have a great stage presence in front of a live audience.

Because music is a performing art, My goal also is create some opportunities for you to perform, so I organize one to two music recitals each year for students who are interested. This is an optional event and you can try to do it whenever you feel ready. It is usually held at a small recital room and presented in a low-stress and fun way!

It's a journey that is exciting and unique, so let's make beautiful music together!

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.
