Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

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 been teaching the violin/fiddle to children and adults for 9 years. My speciality is in teaching young children and youth. I do teach methods that are appropriate to their level, whether they are beginners or have been playing for a while. I love teaching adult beginners as well, we all need a good start with a firm technique base for left and right areas (violin and bow) of playing the violin. I teach from the concept of Musicianship: warm ups to prevent injury, correct techniques for playing, and using theory books and violin method books that are creative and easy to follow and understand, both for children and adults. I teach note-reading as well as aural learning because a student, young or older, needs both music notation and ear training to gain the best possible perspective on learning this instrument and having fun. As a teacher, I love being creative in lessons, it's very important and helps the student to assimilate the techniques and pieces so they can move ...

About Diane

I love to teach the violin, viola and fiddle. I really enjoy working with adult beginners to help them discover music. You are never too old to learn! I also enjoy working with young children and youth to establish a wonderful foundation for the student. I have special training in working with chi

Diane is an amazing teacher!! My two daughters (8 and 12yrs old) have been taking lessons from Diane for over 2 years and they love her lessons! Diane is very kind-hearted, very positive, and patient. They have a great violin rental and purchasing program with a very reasonable price and her husband as a professional luthier, setting up all the instruments for us and whenever the kids need to switch a violin size, they take care of it. We are very happy with Diane and it's hard to find a teacher like her.
Nancy
Was my first violin lesson today, and Diane is very thorough and easy to follow. She is excited about the violin and not just a teacher so I already know that I have a great teacher. I am so excited about my journey with her!
Amber A.
Diane is a fabulous teacher!! When my daughter wanted to start violin and fiddle I knew I would need to know something about violin to help her at home. So, Diane taught my 5 year old and me. Diane really has an amazing bond with my daughter and has truly become one of our family... She makes the lessons fun and engaging for my daughter... She takes a personal interest in her students and gears the lessons to their level. Diane is always willing to work with you when it comes to schedules as well, for example: summer time vacations.... I highly recommend Diane as an instructor. She knows her instrument, her theory, and how to convey the information to adults and small children. We have now been taking lessons for a couple of years and my daughter still looks forward to them and that is due to the investment that Diane has personally made in their relationship!

I have played the violin for 20 years and taught violin for 7 years. I use the Suzuki method and the paschal method and then work into concertos and sonatas as students become advanced. During COVID I have found the convenience and success in online teaching. I absolutely love teaching violin and watching students become incredible musicians through hard work and consistency! It has been a great joy in my life!

About Lindsey

It has brought me great joy watching my students flourish into amazing musicians! Through years of practice and persistence they have progressed through the Suzuki books and are now performing concertos, sonatas and difficult fiddle pieces! I would be overjoyed to teach you or your child the violin

First and foremost, it is so important for me to get to know you and your musical interests (favorite songs, artists or bands). Once I know a little bit more about you and where your musical interests are, I help you build goals based on what you’d like to accomplish...that could be anything from “just wanting to learn something new and to have fun” to “playing my sister’s favorite song at her wedding in 3 months” or “to join an orchestra and make it my professional goal”. My style of teaching over the last 25 years incorporates technique, reading music, ear training, and improvisation. In addition to the violin, I teach viola, cello and piano/keyboard. The genres I love to teach are classical, rock, pop, jazz, film/tv music, and fiddle!

Nancy was excellent. She was no nonsense and to the point in her lessons. We never wasted time and I always left with a little more knowledge under my belt. I’ve moved out of LA and have hired other instructors but none as succinct as Nancy. I definitely got my money’s worth with Nancy. I would return to her for lessons if I returned to LA.
Tamsin
Nancy is a wonderful teacher, my teenage son began with her at the awkward age of 14, new to the violin and a requirement of his new school.
She not only got him playing, but instilled a love of music and of composition. Nancy was also incredibly supportive and encouraging as my son transitioned and has a special place in our hearts
amy
New to LA , I found Leggy Fish Music on my second search for cello teacher. I’m so glad I did. Nancy is great teacher , working with me as some one late to music on basics as well as creative methods.
She creates new and different classes - group , and mash up with different musicians and instruments.
She seems to get the best from all her students.

"I am a professional musician who works closely with Jessica. Jessica and I work together at our church in the youth choir/band and the adult choir (I am the director of both music groups). Outside of the church, the two of us also comprise a duo, playing classical music and modern classics together. I can speak to Jessica's professionalism and virtuosity, and I can also speak to her interaction with children.
Jessica is incredibly musical; she sight reads fluently, she has excellent intonation and a beautiful tone on her violin, her rhythm is flawless, and she has an instinctive and musical sense of dynamics, leading to beautiful interpretations and expression. She is a superb player in ensemble/chamber music. As a soloist, she commands the stage with a presence of beauty, technical expertise, and confidence.
Jessica works wonderfully with children. She is a kind and loving influence, giving helpful suggestions to the children to help them develop better musicianship. She has vision as a musician, and she conveys her ideas clearly to both children and adults."
