My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Private Violin Teacher

With a background in both classical and ear training, I teach a highly individualized approach with an emphasis on technique, theory, and sight-reading. My goal is to set a strong foundation in these areas, develop a love for music, and inspire students to reach their full potential. I am confident that any child can learn the basics of an instrument with the right guidance and approach. My experiences as a preschool teacher and elementary music instructor have given me a unique advantage in learning to work with young students and individualize instruction. I look forward to meeting you!

About Rachel

I get it. Whether it was a concert, a video, or a school friend who just started violin, your little one started begging for the instrument. Now it's been weeks, and what you thought was a passing fancy hasn't gone away. I was that five-year-old. My heart was set on one day playing the violin. It t

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

"Julie? Yes.

I wanted to start taking the violin seriously, and Julie was certainly the best teacher for that (and still is!). She helped me prepare for my audition for my school's chamber group and although I did not make it that year (being that I had started lessons a couple months before my audition day), I did the next year. Not only that, I made it by a long shot. I was fifth chair, first violin. Even before then I noticed how much I had improved studying with Julie. She not only worked with me on how to efficiently practice and approach the music itself, but taught me proper technique to yield the best sound--for instance, using the ENTIRE bow, an important thing to do... She is patient, her instruction is invaluable, and improvement is guaranteed (given that you also work hard). It is also superfun playing duets with her <3."

I am a 44 yo violin beginner student who has had 5 teachers in the last 6 years, I didn’t learn much with them, this been said, with Peter in just 3 months I feel I have learned more than my other teachers.
