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.

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!

Renata G.

Miami, FL

I have been playing violin for 20 years and teaching for the last 6 years. Since every student has a unique process of learning, I use varied material from Essential Elements or the Suzuki method up to Paganini caprices that I will provide. The student should have their own instrument. They will be able to play simple tunes from the onset.
I did my Master's Degree in Florida International University and my Bachelor's Degree in the National Music Conservatory of Mexico.

al notation and symbols, comfortable and physically healthy approaches to holding the instrument and practicing effective posture, as well as performance techniques and a love of music are all topics covered in Ms. Garcia’s violin lessons.

I've tried to learn violin in past years, but I hadn't found the right teacher. Now, Ms. Garcia has been helping me a lot, and I've noticed a huge progress in my practicing since I started with her. She always finds the best way to guide me through the violin world. I absolutely don't hesitate in recommending Ms. Garcia to all those who are looking for a great violin and music teacher.

Ms. Garcia is the violin teacher of my 10 year daughter. She can't wait every week for her lesson. Her motivation is up to the roof thanks to the support of Ms. Garcia. Thanks to the violin lessons, my daughter has improved in many other aspects. She is so motivated. When I take my daughter to her lessons, I always find Ms. Garcia prepared, willing and motivated with a big and welcoming smile. I strongly recommend her.

I have the experience as a colleague of Ms. Garcia. I can tell that she is an amazing, charismatic, knowledgeable teacher, performer and musician. I have worked with her side by side as performers and teachers. The level of creativity of Ms. Garcia is unparalleled. She has a unique ability to keep the students and the audience engage from the start to the end of the lesson or the concert. It is a pleasure being able to work with such a talented professional. I am sure that those that are under her teaching are as fortunate as those that work around her.
