Private Violin Teacher

Melodies in your head and a song in your heart, but your voice isn't so great, or maybe it is. I can teach your to connect the physicality and express yourself with a Violin or Viola. (soprano or Alto). The tough part is learning hold to hold the violin properly. It takes a couple months to train the muscles a new stance. With my help your posture and breathing will become as one with the music It's not a myth, the violin is the most complex instrument to learn.

Comprehensive program with ear training and reading music.

Raycurt has the knowledge and passion for the arts that makes for an excellent teacher. Highly recommend.

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.

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

Violin is the air I breathe and I love teaching it! While I make most of my money performing and improvising on the violin, I have classical training and I take the pedagogy of music and specifically the violin as a very serious responsibility because of how it has shaped my life both in health and in injury. Don't worry, we still have a lot of fun in lessons :)

I tailor my approach to the needs of each individual student I have. (I recently found out I'm good at teaching online so I'm taking this site more seriously now) Unless you are an advanced player looking to improvise, we will likely begin my devising some exercises to work on posture and technical foundation based on your needs. If you are a complete beginner or are seeking lessons for your child, then we will start at the beginning :)

Young students taking online lessons must have a parent in the room to take practice notes (I will help you with what to write) and that parent or their partner must be willing to help guide

Daniel is such a great instructor. We began at home/in-person lessons for our son and Daniel immediately connected with him. He made the lessons fun and absorbable, such that we saw progression each week. The lessons went so well that when we purchased a home over an hour away, we decided to try online lessons, and everything is going just as well!

Daniel does a wonderful job making learning an instrument fun. The kids look forward to lessons each week and he caters to their individual strengths and skill levels.

So far 1 lesson and Shannon made my tween feel very easy (he is a bit shy to play in front of people) and motivated. We are looking forward to more lessons!

My daughter’s first lesson with Shannon was fantastic! Shannon has such a warm personality that immediately put us all at ease. She is so patient, kind and knowledgable. She had many tips and tricks to help my daughter learn. My daughter left the lesson eager to practice what she learned, and eager to go to her next lesson. I couldn’t ask for a better outcome!

Whether you're a complete beginner looking to make a cheap, factory-made instrument more grateful to play, or a more advanced student wanting to customize your "forever" instrument to suit you and you alone, the basic knowledge of how to set up a violin is worth grasping even if your interest doesn't extend much beyond curiosity and a love of tinkering with things.

The mind is a powerful thing, and the physical effects that nerves can have on the body are sometimes overwhelming.
