Private Violin Teacher

A long time scholarship student of the greatest violinist of all times Jascha Heifetz, international Concertmaster of major orchestras around the world and concert debut 72 years ago, I have the longest international career in the world among living violinists. Googling my name will give around 2 million results in ½ a second. Taking lessons with me might be slightly more than average, but will save you a lot of wasted time and money in the long run; acquiring bad habits from inexperienced instructors are practically impossible to uproot later. There is no substitute for 75 years of top international experience.

About Adam

Please google “Adam Han-Gorski” - there will be about 2 million results in half a second, easier than writing here. With a debut in March 21, 1948 (can be seen on YouTube), I am one of the handful of musicians alive with the longest international career in the world. With that kind of experience y

Private Violin Teacher

I have worked as a professional String Teacher for the past 10 with students learning the Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass and Guitar. I have also worked as an Orchestra Director in public schools in Boston, San Francisco and New York. My students enjoy learning with me and are inspired not only about playing music, but about life.

You will learn the proper position to facilitate playing any of the string instruments.

After studying with me, you will have a strong understanding of how to develop your position, tone and technique on the violin. You will learn more about music based on your level (of current understanding). You will explore. You will learn how to play along to/with a song of your choice. You will be reminded that this is a tool and you are the artist.
What is your message or reason for playing?
What purpose does it fulfill?
You will receive/be given creative encouragement to express yourself.
You will be inspired.

Private Violin Teacher

Hello to each of you! My name is Corey, and I have been teaching for 31 years. My primary professional instrument is cello, but started on violin at the age of 7. As I progressed as a child I played violin in the school orchestra setting, and cello outside of the school systems. Like many of you I've been locked up in my home because of Covid19. What fun! Not really... but I have been enjoying teaching 24 of my current private students. Additionally, I have been teaching music at a Waldorf School in Portland Oregon for 22 years. My work at the school has decreased because of the crisis and now I've been moved to 1/2 time. I'm so excited to expand my teaching studio, and have the opportunity to meet you. I teach beginning and intermediate violin students. I studied violin at the Community Music Center in Portland, OR. My degree is BM in cello performance from Portland State University 1993, and I have studied (and/or had master classes) with Stephanie McDougal, Hamilton Cheifetz, Yo

About Corey

For over 30 years it’s been an honor to serve students learning to play a stringed instrument. Teaching is a passion for me. My primary instrument is cello, and secondary instruments are violin, and bass. I’ve been lucky to have studied cello with Hamilton Cheifetz, Stephanie McDougal, Yo Yo Ma, H

Corey has been an amazing teacher for both of my sons! His talent with the instruments, his ability to share facts and make it interesting, and his intuition about what is effective for teaching young kids make the experience really wonderful for our whole family. He has been flexible in scheduling lessons. He is kind and patient with the boys. They look forward to their lessons every week and that is a great victory even if daily practice is challenging. Both boys have shown great improvement in their skills!
Forrest
Corey is the single biggest reason I stuck with music and was eventually accepted to several notable music conservatories including the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University and Oberlin Conservatory. I began studying with Corey at the age of 9, and he made the entire learning process exciting and engaging. His enthusiasm for music is contagious for students at all levels, and his expertise in guiding his pupils through the extremely complex process of learning a stringed instrument is unparalleled. Corey brings decades of pedagogical and professional experience to each lesson, and is always eager to impart this wisdom on his students. I cannot recommend Corey enough, for students at any level he is the best teacher you will be able to find!
Jenny
Our daughter studied violin with Corey for six years. She loved learning from him. I think Corey has a wonderful ability to nurture the love of making music. His teaching style is kind and patient. And he makes it fun. I would highly recommend him!

Online Violin Teacher

Since 2011, I've had the joy of teaching students how to play the violin to the best of their ability. From six year olds just starting out to adults in their 80s who want to learn just for fun, I've successfully taught the skills and techniques to make music on this beautiful instrument.

With a gentle, patient approach, I custom-tailor each lesson to the student's goals, interests, and abilities. Within that framework, I place an emphasis on proper position, technique and intonation. To provide a thorough and well-rounded music education, I also teach note reading, music theory, and ear-training. I do everything I can to make learning fun and engaging -- often using games, flashcards, and interactive exercises to teach certain concepts, especially for younger players. Complex skills are broken down into "bite-sized" pieces that are easy to understand. They are then layered on top of one another sequentially. Through it all, I provide students with steady encouragement and just the ...

Sarah hernandez
Miss. Vicky, is a very passionate and kind teacher. She has been able to pull my shy daughter out of her shell and become a more confident musican. I highly recommend her. She knows that she has to adapt to different students based on ability and personality. We continue to take lessons and will throughout karinas years.
Karla
Ms. Vicky is an effective instructor because she meets the student where they are. Adult learners require a connection between prior knowledge and new information. Ms. Vicky successfully creates the connections I need to understand new concepts. Ms. Vicky is very patient. She provides the right amount of positive feedback and gently corrects incorrect form when needed.

I am amazed at how Gail has been able to guide my daughter through these years of learning. Every lesson seems fun and engaging. My daughter practices on her own, no hounding from me! I think this is all Gail's doing. She has the ability to connect with my daughter and has encouraged her through fun activities to continue her lessons "on her own" through practice.
