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.

I began violin at the age of 12. I was immediately in love with it at 11 after hearing my best friend play for our school band. After traveling to Branson, MO, I returned home with my first violin just after turning 12. I played in my many youth orchestras including the Bloomington Youth Symphony, Terre Haute, Columbus and my highschool orchestra. I teach Suzuki style using a variety of method books. I teach ages 5 and up. Learn proper bow hold. Violin requires good intonation and solid technique both of which I ensure each of my students follow from the beginning.

I am an experienced teacher of 16 years! I thrive on finding each student's specific learning style and cultivating a positive and productive learning experience within that. I apply consistent and focused energy in getting my students to strive for their best, and I aim to inspire them to respond in turn with the same focused and accurate effort.

I teach using a modified Suzuki method. This means that, while I do subscribe to Suzuki's "mother tongue" approach, I also believe that education on an instrument requires literacy from a young age. I have discovered in my years of teaching that an early ability to read notes and understand musical theory and form is not a handicap to a student's development, but rather a benefit to the student gaining a richer, fuller understanding of their instrument and music in general.

I believe that every person can be taught, that parental involvement is crucial in the development of musicians from a young age through the high school years, and ...

"A Great Violin Teacher

My daughter has been taking lessons with Larisa for three years and has made incredible progress. She began as a viola player and Larisa gave her lessons on that instrument as well. She was very helpful in making the transition to violin. Larisa works on technique as well as musicality so that the student develops into a well rounded musician. Larisa is the type of teacher who communicates clearly so that the student is able to immediately grasp the new concepts. She is a wonderful violinist and is able to demonstrate by playing beautifully as well as explaining. Larisa is extremely knowledgeable about the different periods of music and composers and shares this in her teaching. She has an easygoing personality and my daughter immediately connected with her. I would highly recommend Larisa for your student."

"Being a teacher of young children myself, I know when children are responsive to a teacher and when a teacher is responsive to her students. I have had the fortunate opportunity to witness Jill’s remarkable violin teaching style many times. Using an approach that is creative, spontaneous and joyful, Jill combines the deep knowledge of her craft for both playing and teaching violin. Jill has developed a unique and dynamic teaching philosophy which captures the best of a learning experience. She is able to offer each student exactly what is needed to be successful. And how does one measure success? Each student can not wait to come back the following week!"
