Private Violin Teacher

I started playing violin at 3 years old. Wichita State University gave me the opportunity to get my Music Ed degree and start teaching lessons. I have taken over 500 lessons myself and played in many heavy gigging bands playing gigs almost every weekend. Improvising, Country, Jazz, and Rock are my specialties but I have played lots of Blues, Funk, and Latin jazz as well.

I love playing and teaching violin and can't wait to share my passion with you!

I tailor my approach to each student. Some students require more technical work, some require interpretive. Both are fascinating and can be taught with structure and clarity.

Our daughter has only has one lesson so far, but she came home with a big smile! She was excited about what she had learned, and is looking forward to her next lesson! She was very comfortable with Chenyu, and said she definitely wants her to teach her piano in the future.

Online Violin Teacher

Hi!! When you study with me, I will tailor the lesson to fit your needs and YOUR goals. Method books may work awesome for some students, while others may prefer a more "by ear" approach. Whatever your music goals or needs may be, I will work with you to make sure they are achieved, planning your lesson around YOU. Questions during lessons are welcomed and encouraged. I do a recital during the summer also, because as an active performer, it is my firm belief that students learn faster and with more enthusiasm and interest when they have a specific goal to feel excited about.

About Arielle-Khrystiana

My students and students' parents have praised me for my musicianship, patience, and compassion. I am an operatic soprano and musical theater musician, thus making me a diverse and well-rounded instructor. In voice lessons, we will focus on vocalizes, excellent technique, theory, and appropriate re

"Will is encouraging, insightful, and patient! My very first violin lesson couldn't have gone better. There was helpful critiquing and a fair amount of pats on the back when it came to small victories. For a beginner like myself, that kept my morale on the up and up. Will carries a positive and understanding attitude which makes me eager for our next lesson!"

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the progress our son Thomas made with Dan. Thomas started playing last year and was progressing faster than the rest of his third grade class which is why we were looking for a private teacher to help him along. Before taking lessons with Dan I had a hard time getting Thomas to practice. Thomas has begun practicing all on his own because he has been genuinely inspired. Dan is a true professional who always on time and in a good mood to teach. He was so patient with Thomas and developed practice techniques unique to Thomas's situation. Dan is more than just a violin teacher, he is dedicated to inspiring each student to love music. Thanks Dan!!!"

"Amazing teacher

Kelvin is a great teacher. He has a hands-on teaching style integrated with little bits of music theory. Also, he gives you constructive criticism on your originals that doesn't insult your artistic style, but rather works with it. When I first found Kelvin, I told him I wanted to learn an array of instruments so I can understand the workings of a orchestra before I assemble one of my own, and he was in full support of it! Over the course of several lessons, we've listened to several CDs and analyzed the arrangements listening for the entrance of different instruments that add complexity and depth to the music. Kelvin is the ideal teacher for learning the general concepts behind building a song, and learning specifics within songwriting. Assuming you dedicate enough time to your music between lessons, Taking lessons with Kelvin has been the best investment yet on my musical journey."
