Having taught and performed for over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all levels and ages. For beginning students, you can expect to be playing and learning to read music within your first month of taking lessons. I am happy to say that my intermediate and advanced students have met goals of preparing for auditions with success, performance events, and simply studying new technique and repertoire for their own pleasure. I look forward to meeting and sharing your musical endeavors!

My 9 year old daughter really liked Robert. She started from scratch and learned new skills, many notes and a couple of songs in 2 1/2 hours of lessons. She told me he was really nice and I was impressed with her progress. He was very easy to work with and was always prompt to the lessons.

Any role related to music requires some degree of knowledge of music theory.

Music theory is the study of how music works.

Whether you are a roady, sound engineer, music critic, producer, arranger, song writer, composer or anything else I haven't thought of, you MUST know enough music theory to perform your function.

Take my course to know the rest.

Violin in Asheville, NC

By Stephanie Q. - Asheville Violin Teacher

My name is Stephanie Quinn and I moved to Asheville from Chicago one year ago. I auditioned and won seats in three professional orchestras. I split my time between teaching, orchestra work, composing and playing weddings. Asheville is a tourist hub, attracting nature lovers and musicians. Many people move here from Chicago and New York City, because of its eclectic artistic and sophisticated flavor. We have an opera, 3 orchestras within 40 miles, a ballet, several theaters, and countless live music venues.

There are many sources of inspiration for violin students, whether one is interested in classical or fiddling styles. Whether you're a half hour drive from Asheville or live within the city itself, one has a choice to see Hendersonville Symphony, Brevard Philharmonic, Asheville Symphony almost every weekend. Each orchestra has several violinists who are also high-end instructors. If you are a student in Asheville area and participate in a student recital, you may expect a lovely turn out and supportive audience… and not just the parents of the participants! This area has a heavy retirement-age population, so music concerts are well attended and enthusiastically supported. The Asheville Amadeus Festival drew huge audiences for the workshops and master classes, and our GRAMMY award-winning guest piano soloist was Emanuel Ax. Another fabulous event each summer is the Brevard Music Center Festival which includes over 80 opera, chamber and orchestral performances over a seven week period. World class musicians come to perform, and about half the events are free of charge. It is very inspiring for students to be exposed to performances of such a high level!

If you are interested in fiddle music, there are many choices of restaurants or bars to listen and learn every night of the week! After I rehearse with Asheville Symphony I often hit one of the local spots to relax and listen to old town, blues, country, gypsy-jazz, and Irish fiddle music. I recommend a few of my favorites: Weinhaus on Patton Ave, 5 Walnut Wine Bar, The John Henry’s, and Hot Pint Trio. Weinhaus has the best oldies and bluegrass music I’ve ever heard. I’ve seen fiddle players possessing the technique of a classically trained virtuoso violinist. Beginning violin lessons in Asheville can tap you into a rich community of talented musicians. I work with the gypsy fiddler who performs at John Henry’s, 5 Walnut, and Hot Pint Trio, as well as a GRAMMY award-winner who plays with Paul Winter Band at many of these venues.

Beginning violin lessons in Asheville can seem a bit daunting for someone who is just starting out, but remember that practice and enthusiasm will pay off! Two of my students have already placed in prestigious competitions. I also coach the local premiere student string quartet. They’re in great demand and get to perform and make money all around this area.

What makes Asheville special is that people here live with intention and passion. Start violin lessons today and enjoy talented, brilliant people who make beautiful music in our wonderful city!
