Brandon has give the perfect complement for my 9 yo daughter in-school lessons. She started in the school orchestra this year and she was among the least knowledgable students; right after she started with Brandon, her performance improved significantly. Now she's preparing for her first solo performance and Brandon has been a key in this process.

Brandon knew exactly hot to kickstart my 13 yo daughter in guitar. It was her first lesson ever and after a few weeks she made a huge progress. Now she plays guitar much better than me and it's been just a few months so far. This is part talent, but I have no doubt this is also part orientation. Brandon did a great job in motivation with her and figured out the best way to engage her in her learning.

I'm a teacher who has worked with Kate and her students. I'm always very impressed with her students, they are set up so well! Kate does a great job balancing technique basics with repertoire and musical knowledge. I would highly recommend her for any level, she is great with beginners as well as more advanced students.

Great Teacher

Kate is a fantastic teacher. She taught our sometimes resistant 6 year old, and she was always patient with her and made her lessons fun. I highly recommend her!

My best music teacher ever!

We are so happy to have Kate as our violin teacher. She is a professional who has great approach towards kids and manages to find the best way to teach them how to love the instrument, play it as a true artist and show them how to enjoy music. Our daughter adores her and always goes to the lessons with desire and leaves with a big smile on her face. She quickly learned the basics and now loves playing the violin and keeps practicing every day without being reminded to do so.

We love Ms. Brown!

Ms. Brown is professional and kind, which is a wonderful way to learn a new skill like playing the violin. My daughters were taught by her years ago as young children and then we lost track of her. When we found her on TakeLessons, we signed up, willing to drive miles for her instruction. She is thorough, clear in instruction and so even tempered. What a great teacher!
Martina S. Chicago, IL

My background is as a violist, but throughout my career I have received cross=training and experience with violin, and I am aware of the minor difference in approach and technique.

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.

About Martina

Hi! My name is Martina and I am a classically trained violist. In May of 2013 I received a Master of Music from Roosevelt University, where I studied with Lawrence Neuman of the Chicago Symphony. I received an undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin with Sally Chisholm of the Pro Arte quartet. The only thing I love more than playing viola is sharing the joy of music with others! I've received training on violin and viola and can't wait to start teaching you or your child. *** Lesson Details *** I tailor my approach to each student to make sure that: 1.) The student is getting exactly what he/she wants out of the lessons. 2.) The lessons are an appropriate difficulty for the student. 3.) A student's strengths and weaknesses are being addressed with a tailor-made ...

Martina is very helpful and she found out my problems even before I tell them to her and helped me in solving them very quickly. She is a great teacher. I would love to continue with her lessons further.
Dan P. Chicago, IL

Suzuki Method

About Dan

I have been instructing students from kindergarten to high-school all over Chicago area for the past thirteen years. My highest accomplishment is having a high-school sophomore student playing second chair first violin on Chamber Orchestra and third chair first violin in Symphonic Orchestra at Maine Township High School, Park Ridge, Illinois. Other accomplishments are having students prepared for Granquist Memorial Music Competition, Geneva Illinois. My lessons are always focused on adapting the violin practice to fit the character of the individual student. Besides learning good violin performance practices, the student will shape up character by developing specific neural pathways that will help in child development as well as overall cognitive activity. Learning to play violin ...

My seven years old daughter Sydney is one of Dan's students. She enjoys her weekly lessons with Dan very much. Dan is a very skilled, professional and patient. He is one of these teachers that has pedagogic skills to guide his students. Dan is teaching my daughter plying violin but he also teaches her how to develop patience,perseverance and discipline. These qualities will definitely help my daughter in becoming a well adapted human being. We are hoping to have Dan as Sydney's violin teacher for many years to come.

Jimmy C. Chicago, IL

Students are taught the Suzuki method in combination with familiar contemporary music. As students develop the fundamental and technical skills in classical training, contemporary music may be simultaneously incorporated into lessons according to the student's interest.

About Jimmy

Currently serving as a violin instructor at The Violin Center and Flatts & Sharpe Music for the last five years. I began studying the violin at age six in New York City, pursuing my training in classical music. Through meeting other musicians and first-hand exposure to music, many interests developed in exploring other genres of performance. Since my arrival to Chicago in 2008, I have been performing with various artists and musicians at numerous venues/events such as The Double Door, The Elbo Room, Schubas, Uncommon Ground, Red Kiva, Summerfest, Grant Park, The United Center, Wrigley Field. Hollywood & Blue Chip Casinos, Arcada Theater, Ballydoyle, and many more. ** Lesson Details *** Students are taught the Suzuki method in combination with familiar contemporary music. As ...

Sad Violin Music That Will Bring You to Tears
An effective practice routine incorporates a variety of things, including scales, long tones, technical exercises, sight reading, and repertoire work. However, there is one other very important habit that musicians should incorporate into their regular practice routine, no matter what their age or skill level: listening to other performers. Why is listening to other performers such an integral part of musicianship? For one, it exposes you to a wide array of timbres, techniques, and musical idea
Guide to Playing the Violin: Where Should I Start?
Playing an instrument is something many people long to be able to do well. Music sooths the soul, and there is just something inspiring about being able to play songs on your own! If you’re ready to get started, then here are some tips for playing the violin:  Getting a Violin First things first: you’ll need an instrument!

Age or Aptitude: When to Start Violin Lessons
Some start optimistically young, others driven by passion start much later in life, but when is the right time to start violin lessons? Like any other form of art, there’s simply no black or white when it comes to exploring music. The right time to start can’t be measured exclusively by age. Some ambitious parents start their kids at the age of two, and while many go off to become YouTube sensations, a whole lot more tend to give up by the age of five. So what should you consider before diving
Are You Making the Most of Your Violin Practice?
Gifted musicians don't appear from nowhere fully-formed and ready to take to the concert platform.  For every 45-minute concerto or 90-minute recital you hear, hours of hard work have gone into every note, every phrase, and even how the music is approached, learned, and memorized! It may seem strange to say that proper practice is the most nerve-wracking element of mastering your violin, but if you don't know how to structure the session, how can you ever be sure that you're working on the righ
