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.

About Rob

Make sure you contact me about scheduling. I have other students and a job that sometimes changes week to week. I may have other times available. Let me know.

Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.
Jeff
great first lesson. Personable and informative.
Lin
Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

Private Violin Teacher

I've taught people who were just beginning violin (both children and adults) to students who were working on major concertos. What is most important to me as a teacher is building a strong foundation from which it is possible to branch out and connect emotionally with the music they play. I also strive to make performers out of violinists and to help them engage both audiences and themselves.

About Ha-eun

I have been surrounded by music my whole life and have played violin for 20 years. I went to high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy, obtained a BM in violin performance at Oberlin Conservatory and an MM at the Boston Conservatory. I have won competitions, played in professional orchestras, perf

I got a great introduction to the instrument and the music theory from Ha-eun. She provides a lot of feedback, explaining in a number of ways so that you can understand the concept or your mistakes better. Also she is very friendly and super chill so don't worry about your age if you are just starting, it will be a lot of fun.

Ha-eun has been an amazing violin teacher. I played violin for several years throughout my childhood and then stopped playing for about 10 years before deciding I wanted to learn again. Having not played for so long, I wasn't really sure what I remembered or what my skill level was at.

Ha-eun has done a great job evaluating me and picking pieces that are challenging but still do-able. She is really friendly and encouraging and has made re-learning the violin an enjoyable experience.

For personal reasons, I have to take a break from violin for a little but when I re-start lessons, I will definitely pick Ha-eun as my teacher again if she is still taking students at that time!

She really knows her stuff when it comes to music and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn violin.

Teaching Philosophy:

I believe that learning how to play the violin is about more than hammering away countless hours of practice. The well-rounded musician of today absolutely must have a foundational understanding of sustainable technique, music history, and music literacy as far as these can be applied to the player’s personal goals. As they practice and apply what they’ve learned in their lessons, each week my students are becoming stronger, more independent players.

In this way, their daily practice and weekly lesson help them blossom into musicians with a life-long love of playing the violin, and each new page of music presents a new adventure to take up.

No matter what, I seek to meet my students where they are and set them up for success. I do this through:

-strengthening awareness of the violin & bow
-educating about both shoulder rest and non-shoulder rest techniques
-cultivating better intonation
-helping students tap into the resonance of the instrument
...

My adult daughter Kate was given saxophone lessons for Christmas and had her first lesson this week. Joshua was prompt, professional and she enjoyed herself immensely. She was nervous about not knowing how to read music but Joshua put her at ease immediately. We had to reschedule quite a few times due to Covid being in the house and he was very accommodating. I recommend him highly.
Sandra
Joshua is always ready for us and had been very patient with my last minute changes in our schedule! Ryley, 8, is improving in chess. Joshua is friendly with Ryley. He can be a little dry - My some is very outgoing and talkative and enjoys his weekly lessons!

Elisabeth has been teaching our 12 year old son piano for several years. She is very methodical in working through curriculum in her instruction, but also flexible to include other “fun” songs that he wanted to play to help keep him motivated. She is very patient and efficient during the lesson time. I may add that my husband is a classical pianist so we were looking for a high quality instructor. We also appreciate that she is flexible with changing lessons times on occasion when our schedule may change for a season. We’ve been very pleased with the progress our son has made under her teaching.
Natalie Britt
If your searching for an amazing teacher your search is over. Elisabeth has been wonderful violin teacher to my son! She makes corrections without being critical..that's huge!! We highly recommend her!!
Denise
Elisabeth is helping me realize a dream of learning to play both the cello and the violin in my not-so-youthful years. I deeply appreciate her patience and encouragement, her knowledgeable and confident guidance. Each lesson session is a joy because of Elisabeth's upbeat, positive outlook and her genuine desire to see and hear my playing abilities improve.
