Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

Private Violin Teacher

I am currently a violin instructor and chamber music/ ensemble coach at University of Southern California. My previous teaching experiences include violin private lesson instruction and chamber music/ensemble coach at Yale University and New England Conservatory Preparatory School. I have been a teaching artist at Porterville Summer Strings for two summer seasons, giving individual instructions and coaching violin sectionals.
I am a graduate of Yale School of Music and New England Conservatory. My teaching focus primarily on good foundation of technique and relaxed posture/physical set up, while inspiring musicality and developing personal expression. I am familiar with a vast variety of classical repertoire/etudes/ scale systems and exercises; however, I often compose/ transcribe personalized etudes and musical pieces according to each student’s need and interest. I also work with music in different genres. I emphasize on the importance of good practice. I help my students to ...

Welcome to my violin and viola studio! I believe that every student can enjoy the process of studying an instrument, and can learn to play with ease and joy. As a result, I work to determine each student's learning style, look for ways to encourage individual ownership of learning, and adapt my approach to help meet each student’s needs and goals. I teach both Suzuki and traditional lessons, and draw from a variety of musical styles and approaches to help students develop a broad range of skills that include a strong technical foundation, ear training, sight-reading, ensemble playing, and musical self-expression. Through this approach, I hope to help students develop a lifelong love for music that will serve them in all future endeavors, musical or otherwise.

Emily is an excellent teacher. I have no knowledge of music at all and she has been very patient in teaching me the basics. I have done 5 lessons with her (one in person and 4 online) and she has been very helpful thoughout. She made sure to send me copies of the lessons and recommended books, so I could practice offline.

"Cara, was a spectacular teacher. She taught my twin girls for two years. She kept them engaged both in violin and piano. Cara made these lessons fun! She was both caring and effective in her teaching, and my girls looked forward to seeing her EVERY week. Cara does a great job of boosting the child's self confidence. It is amazing to see our children grow into a wonderful musicians. We miss her terribly.....and would have stayed with her until my girls had graduated. I am grateful that she was able to be apart of my children's lives. Cara has given my daughters a great love of music that will last forever."

How Long Does it Take to Learn Violin?

  Wouldn’t it be great to learn to play an instrument in minutes? Think of the musical repertoire you would have! Unfortunately, like many different skill sets, that simply isn’t the case. Learning to play an instrument, as with driving and hitting a great shot on the golf course, is all about practice. The more you practice, the faster you learn, and the better you play. And the violin, a wooden chordophone with a beautiful soprano sound, takes time to learn, just like any other ins …
