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

IMPROVISERS! (Classical See below)
Have you always wanted to play violin by ear?!  To play all of your favorite songs or play in a band?!
Can you hum or whistle? Can you sing what you hear, even a few notes of it? 

If so, I can help you discover the improviser that already exists inside of you! It's gonna be fun🙂
And yes you will still have to run scales, there is no getting around it... I tried.
Under 16, parents must attend the full lesson and will assist in daily music practice.

CLASSICAL
You want a teacher who will set you up with the foundational technique you need while bringing in songs you've always wanted to learn.

We will go through the Suzuki Method books with supplemental material (though I am not a Suzuki teacher) to instill the art of balanced violin playing into your body and motor functions while our minds play with the beauty of rhythm, timing, tone, expression, and musicality. When you are ready, I am happy to arrange songs that fit your interest in addition to ...

About Daniel

I love playing Jazz, Hip hop, Indie Rock, and Classical music. I've even been known to teach a fiddle tune or two. If you want a strict classical track, we will work out of the Suzuki Method books while supplementing with some of your favorite popular tunes when you are ready. I try to find out

I teach all levels of violin. For the lower levels, I use the repertoire from the Suzuki books, but I don't use the actual method. I teach with a more traditional approach. After the student improves in skill, I move them into the traditional scale and etude books along with repertoire that pertains to the level of playing. My number one requirement for my students is scales and etudes. This is the basis of how to play your instrument well. I try to instill good habits in my students and proper technique to present a clean and full sound. I have my students analyze what it is they are playing instead of just playing the notes. With that, I encourage them to LISTEN to the music they are playing. A musician needs to hear the many complexities and pull the emotion out to the listener and to themselves.

As a dynamic exchange, Sofia imparted a masterclass for my students at the Escuela Comunal de Música de Orosi in Cartago, Costa Rica.
It was a very musically enriching experience for each of my kids, who are litle by little growing as violinists.
Sofia provided a great variety of recommendations through her knowledge as interpreter and teacher as well as cautivated everyone in the room with her passion and energy for music.
Sofia is definitely an excellent guide to learn how to play violin and the musical skills it entails.

Since we started to practice together via online I have a huge improvement in my performance. Strongly recommend, very technical, dedicated and responsable teacher with me as student.

I have interacted with Sofia in a number of capacities over the years. I have seen her flourish as a performer and it has been great to see her very effectively leverage her passion and technical skills with a natural talent in becoming a violin teacher. She’s able to build great rapport with her students and focuses on building a personalized growth program for each one.

Great experience

She did a wonderful job teaching Tara. Tara's viola technique really improved this year thanks to Dorothy's patience and hard work. Dorothy never missed a lesson and always came prepared for the next challenge. I must admit that I was hesitant to find a teacher using an on-line service but, Ihave been extremely pleased with our instructor and will miss Dorothy's guidance in our viola lessons.

Feedback for Dorothy

Dorothy has fabulous teacher. She is easy to learn from and doesnt get anoyed when you dont get things on the first try. This is great because as an adult I dont learn as quickly.Also, I am a college student (age 20) and she works with my school and work schedules. I really cant say how pleased I am with the quality of her teaching.

First 3 weeks...

Thank you for what you have done for Mechelle so far. She enjoys coming to lessons and feels very comfortable working with you. And it's nice to know that she's getting the attention and help that she needs to be successful in learning the viola.

How to Measure the Success of Your Child’s Violin Lessons

When it comes to violin for kids, how can you tell if your investment and energy is worth it? Here, San Francisco, CA violin teacher Carol Beth L. shares her advice...   Parents and teachers want the best for their children and students. Both want to believe in their children's potential. So do the children themselves. All groups want the child to be successful. But not all of them measure success in the same way. When children, parents, and teachers disagree on what it means to be succ …
