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

My teaching style is fun and relaxed! I focus first and foremost on teaching the enjoyment of music, and let everything else develop from there.

During lessons I teach sheet music literacy, violin skills and techniques, music theory, and composition. Sheet music is an important part of playing the violin, so we begin working with it from day one. While teaching new skills and techniques I love to explain why we do things the way we do, and give examples of how it can improve one's sound. This helps make the "boring stuff" much more interesting and fun. In addition, I like to include theory and composition because they wonderfully round out students' musicianship. Theory is key to understanding why music works the way it does, and enables students to collaborate with others in a multitude of settings. Composition is often my students' favorite part of the lesson, because it empowers them and allows them to explore and be creative, while building confidence and technical skills.

Danielle was a very intuitive teacher- she listened to my goals, and helped provide me with a clear path toward them, conquering some of the basics, scales, pentatonic, and such... but also some of the more advanced nuances like harmonics and vibrato. If you are trying to learn violin or fiddle, I'd recommend Danielle.

*Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, please note I am only accepting students for online lessons until further notice*

I have over 10 years of teaching experience and teach beginning to intermediate violin lessons. Violin was the first instrument I learned to play and I especially enjoy working with beginning string players. Developing a good ear for pitches and proper playing technique are extremely important for violinists and I focus on these areas foremost. Each lesson is customized for the student’s age, interest, and technical level.

About Linnea

I am a freelance oboist, reed maker, and music teacher in the Seattle area. My teaching studio is currently based in Everett. I have over ten years of teaching experience and love working with students of all ages. My goals are helping you find a love for playing your instrument and assisting you

Linnea is very patient and knowledgeable about her instrument. I truly appreciate her working with my daughter on not only her orchestra lessons, but with strengthening her sight reading, how to hold a bow properly, and more. All in 3 lessons. My daughter has already improved. Thank you!

"I am excited to write a review for our awesome violin instructor~! Our little pre-teen 10 year old daughter took lessons prior Miss Emily for about 6 months but had no motivation to practice and so there was no progress. However, since we met Miss Emily, our daughter has been so motivated! Only after her first lesson, she understood how to read notes, she was engaged, and must've picked up her violin to practice at least 3 times a day for a good 20-30 minutes on her own (under no request by Miss Emily)! I believe it is because Miss Emily is very passionate about her teaching and is very encouraging towards her students. She doesn't make violin lessons a chore, rather an amazing experience!

Miss Emily is very knowledgeable and an amazing and very professional instructor! She patiently goes step by step to make sure all the basis for a firm foundation in music is there and then thoroughly goes to all the steps to keep it simple in learning! She builds great rapport and brings her personal experience to make her more relatable! I would highly recommend Miss. Emily as an instructor!"
