I’ve been playing for 20 years, and teaching for 8. I love teaching any age and experience level. I’m am a pop / classical violinist and would love to help you start or continue your violin journey!

About Autumn
Hello there! Thanks for stopping by my page. I am classically trained violinist of 20+ years, and I am also skilled by way of original composition, songwriting, pop music arrangement, teaching, performance, and improvisation.

I am an award-winning composer, songwriter, and violinist. I won 1st place in the MENC’s national young composers award, 1st place in the Deep South Annual Open Mic Competition, 1st place in the 2006 WA State Solo & Ensemble Contest for violin solo and violin duet, the National Orchestra Person of the Year award in 2006, and 1st place in the national Shorty Award competition for my work in the band Season & Snare. I've been featured for my musical works on WRAL, WUNC, WKNC, Periscope, News & Observer, INDY, Oak City Sessions, SOFAR Sound, Raleigh Television Network, First Night Raleigh, and countless other media
outlets.

I studied Music Composition at Central Washington University after joining the Orange County HS of the Art advanced instrumental music program where I performed for the OC Chamber Ensemble, String Ensemble, and performed with the IMSO under the baton of Christopher Russell. I have also played in countless honors orchestras, string orchestras, symphony orchestras, string quartets, trios, and duos. I currently play violin for the Raleigh Civic Chamber Ensemble, the Raleigh Civic Symphony, the Americana band New Reveille, and am the founder of Petals String Duo, and the Carolina String Society. I have studied with renown violinists such as Gene Wie of the Southern California Chamber Orchestra, and Concertmaster Carol Chung of the NC Opera and NC Symphony.

I am currently in an Americana/alt country band New Reveille that is signed by the record label Loud & Proud Records.

*** Lesson Details ***

Always depending on the student's goals of course, I like to involve personal creativity into my lessons. From figuring out well known tunes, to eventually writing melodies, or at least coming up with the basis and foundation to a piece. I have learned that writing music on your instrument, in conjunction with learning to play the classics, opens up a vast array of musical knowledge and musical creativity. Everything depends upon what the student wants out of their lessons though.

I do enforce weekly homework in the form of scales, warm-ups, etudes, and selected works. All varying upon playing level, and progressing differently from student to student. Recitals are offered at local coffee shops and community churches. The student will have a choice on whether to play solo, with piano accompaniment, guitar accompaniment, or duet music for recitals.

After the first 6 months, the student should be able to comprehend most basic music theory, from note names and where they sit on the fingerboard, to basic scales, time signatures, and basic rhythms in order to effectively sight-read sheet music. The student will have developed a proper bow hold, and will be able to demonstrate a smooth and straight bowing pattern to obtain great tone!

Every student grows at a completely different rate, and this is what is expected of the average student.

*** Specialties ***
For my beginning students I use a combination of the Suzuki Method, All for Strings or Essential Elements, and Harvey Whistler's Scales in First Position.

Materials used for advanced students varies.

This instrument holds true to so much that occurs naturally in nature. The science behind the instrument is so fascinating, and I love to teach with that thought in mind!

THERE IS A REACTION TO EVERY ACTION YOU MAKE!

We could not have asked for a better violin instructor for our 7-year-old daughter. Autumn is exactly what she needed: someone engaging, flexible, creative, and most of all fun! Obviously she is tremendously skilled and a master of her craft, but this does not always make a great teacher. But Autumn is a great teacher, which makes her an absolute gift and inspiration! We are so lucky to have found her! Thanks, Autumn!!!

Autumn is encouraging and enthusiastic and helpful and fun. I am an adult and an experienced violinist who stopped playing for 20 years. I am just getting back into it and am delighted to find that I haven't forgotten how to read music and play, but I am really wanting to improve my sound. Autumn is happy to work on just what I want and need. I don't believe I could have found a better instructor for me.

So here I am on yet another fork in the road and now I have REAL aspirations of making wonderful sounds with my violin! I'm just an old silly man chasing a dream, and Ms. Autumn is making it happen! No matter how much I make annoying squeaking ear drum popping noises, she's right there making it all sound.....imaginary! Ms. Autumn rocks! Ms. Autumn rolls! She is the best of the best! I can't wait for each new lesson! Thanks so much!!!

TEACHING
As a performer, soloist and active chamber musician, and as a pedagogue, I provide private lessons to any individual interested in the art of music, education, and the good times. My teaching welcomes individuals from the youngest to college students. My primary instrument is the Viola, and simultaneously I focus on the instruction of the Violin, and the early and beginning studies of the piano. I have great experience as master class teacher, sectional leader, group teaching, and individual or one-in-one pioneer.

About Maria
BIOGRAPHY
Violist Maria F. V. began her music studies at the Carabobo Music Conservatory where she played in the Infantile & Youth Orchestras, and in the Carabobo Symphony Orchestra. She then transcended her studies to the Simon Bolivar Music Conservatory and into the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. She has performed with different other orchestras such Venezuela Youth National Orchestra, New Jersey Youth Orchestra, Peru National Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Symphony Orchestra, and Latin-American Symphony Orchestra. She has worked with conductors such as Eduardo Salazar, Joshua Dos Santos, Gustavo Dudamel, Sir Simon Rattle and Claudio Abbado.

She holds a BM Performance degree from University of Kentucky, and a MM Performance degree from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro where she worked as Teacher Assistant under Sco
tt Rawls. She has attended several music festivals within the United States and Internationally such as: Cincinnati Conservatory Music Festival, Cleveland Institute of Music Viola Workshop, Brevard Music Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Orford Music Center in Canada, Parma Conservatory-Italy, Musica en Compostela in Spain, and many others.

TEACHING
As a performer, soloist and active chamber musician, and as a pedagogue, I provide private lessons to any individual interested in the art of music, education, and the good times. My teaching welcomes individuals from the youngest to college students.

I have great experience as master class teacher, sectional leader, group teaching, and individual or one-in-one pioneer.

THE OUTCOMES
Apart from the academic outcomes the student will obtain at lessons, my intentions as a teacher and artist is to incorporate and welcome the student in the fantastic music world and literature. One of the many purposes of music is the idea of the student developing a sense of responsibility along with following tasks in a didactic and dynamic manner. I love bringing and promoting the idea and the philosophy of enthusing and inculcating a leadership position of the student in the family, and building most importantly a harmonic and artistic environment among their relatives and into their homes. I love to program and propose little student recitals in where the student will have the opportunity in performing the pieces worked throughout the teaching sessions in a little concert for their friends and family. Every student loves the fun in which they get from these opportunities and from their performance experiences. I do believe that the learning and instruction of music is an important influential factor in participating and in the development of many other abilities and skills; in the expansion and promotion of creativity, the adoption of a more discipline attitude for other arts, it helps to easier approach other academic courses, and to focus on developing the tools and creativity to participate at their schools and anywhere else.

*** Lesson Details ***
METHODOLOGIES
About the teaching methods used, I basically like to approach the beginner student through the methods of Suzuki, which is a very efficient and didactic method most pedagogues uses today. This one is a clear method that demands from the student and it simultaneous engages the interaction and participation of their parents, family, friends, and their community as well. In other occasions, it is most common that I would also incorporate a new student to my studio-transfer students-, who would have used other materials and methods with his/her previous instructor. In this case I would continue using his/her methods to examine the level and content learned and practiced. Then, it is in later lessons where we might establish and suggest other good methods and books to which the student might be ready to switch or scale up to.

In my one hour of comprehensive teaching, students learn extensively the techniques of the violin, including tone production, vibrato, musicality and pieces of music which are chosen from standard violin literature or Suzuki books. The whole idea is to get students to look at the whole learning process as a fun activity, and very soon they acquire the ability to produce beautiful sounds, correct intonation and strong vibrato. In addition to the above, I conduct some some ear-training exercises to improve intonation as well.

About Nader
I am a violinist and composer. I have trained more than 400 students in more than twenty five years of teaching.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson includes scales, arpeggios, etudes and a new piece of music. I emphasize on correct intonation, accurate rhythm and strong vibrato for better expression and thorough musicality.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio at my home is a spacey room that is properly ventilated and well lit, possessing enough chairs available for both my students and possible guests. There are two music stands and an electric Suzuki piano, which can be used for accompaniment in our lessons, especially in preparation for upcoming concerts.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a 2012 Toyota Corolla car, with a trunk that has ample space to house and carry my instruments and music stands as they are needed.

*** S
pecialties ***
Patience and communicating in an effective way and encouraging students to practice without regarding such a task as a chore.

Mr. Nader is an excellent instructor who always puts his students first. He customizes his lessons in accordance to each individual and patiently works with them so that they may achieve their optimum potential.

More than just a passive teacher of the violin, Mr. Nader dedicates his time and energy as a full time instructor of violin, cello, and music theory. Furthermore, Mr. Nader exhibits a level of knowledge, intellect, understanding, and culture rarely seen in the world today. When one walks into his music room, one will be struck with awe at not only the amount of books in Mr. Nader's library collection, but also the wide variety of subjects ranging from Music, Music History, Biographies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many more. However, do not think that these books are just for display. Quite the contrary, one short conversation with Mr. Nader will show that he is well versed in all these subjects; a modern incarnation of the Renaissance polymath. Building off of his broad knowledge base, Mr. Nader not only teaches one how to play an instrument, he also teaches one how to cultivate oneself in Music and the culture from which it originates.

With a passion for Music and a yearn to pass on higher culture to the avid learner, Mr. Nader is the best instructor for all those who wish to learn Music along with its connection to the history, society, and culture from which it springs.

I began playing the violin at the age of 5 and have participated in the Strings International Music Festival as well as the Eastern U.S. Music Camp. Through high school I was a member of the Delaware County Youth Orchestra and took part in district and regional festivals. At Temple University I studied with Helen Kwalwasser and played in the Temple Symphony Orchestra. I have also recorded non-classically on albums with music groups such as Port Arthur, Chet Williams, and Benjamin Poole.

About Elisabeth
Hi! I am a graduate of Temple University's Boyer College of Music, where I earned a degree in Music Theory. Violin and tuba are my primary instruments. I originally began my studies at Boyer in the Music Education department, and through my time there I have a lot of experience teaching music, especially to kids. I have taught high school marching bands for the past five years, most recently as hornline tech for Ridley High School's marching band in the 2017 season.

I marched contra (tuba) in the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps from 2011-2013. During my time at Temple I participated in the Symphony Orchestra, Concert Band, Diamond Marching Band, Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble, and multiple chamber groups. Musical groups with which I am currently involved include Port Arthur, Iris Freeheart, and Polkadelphia, and I have recorded as a studio musi
cian for The Dull Blue Lights (formerly The Snails), No Thank You, Thin Lips, Chet Williams, and others.

I have also been studying German since a very young age and studied abroad in Germany in college. I earned a minor in German and am a member of the national German honor society, Delta Phi Alpha.

Outstanding instructor, professionally gifted, helpful, patient and personable. I was fortunate to have found Elisabeth to teach my 9 year old son how to play the violin. Her teaching style was a perfect match for him and she was able to keep him motivated to play and improve and also achieve his goal of making the junior orchestra for his school.

Be a violin virtuoso!

About Jacqueline
Hello future students! I've been playing violin for 20 of my 25 years of age and teaching for 8 years. I believe that the most important part of learning the violin is having fun and building a passion for music.

In my lessons we will focus on proper violin technique, music theory and most importantly (and fun!) practical application. In practical application, the student chooses what he/she would like to work on, whether it be Mozart or The Chainsmokers or the Moana score, and we learn it together!

I am also proficient in music production/engineering which means that my students can professionally record themselves in my home studio.

If this sounds like fun to you - let's get started! :)

Teaching method:

I have a three pronged approach to my teaching method: technique, music theory and practical application. However, I
believe the most important part of any teaching plan is molding it to fit the student’s needs, so the following methods are entirely flexible.

TECHNIQUE
For technique, we start with simple scales to work on bowing and intonation. When this becomes easy for the student, we move on to more complex key signatures and minor scales, eventually moving into 2 octaves and learning the left hand positions. For intermediate students who want to excel in classical music, we will work on etudes as well as scales.

MUSIC THEORY
I teach music theory as it applies to what the student is currently playing so as not to cause confusion. For example, if the student is learning to play a new piece with a more complex rhythm, we will go over time signatures, how many beats each note gets and so on. I always make flashcards for students so they can “practice” music theory when I’m not there, especially for students who are just learning to read music.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION
In practical application, the student can apply what they learn about technique and music theory to a fun song. I start with the Suzuki books because I like the way they’re structured in terms of technique, and because I love the repertoire. Suzuki books generally come with a CD containing piano accompaniment tracks, which I’ve found students love to play with. Finally, I let the student pick a song of their choice and we learn it together. If the student isn’t enjoying Suzuki, we focus more on the student’s song of choice.

Thanks to Jacqueline, I have been able to pick up the violin again (after not playing for many years) and build back my technique reasonably quickly. She has an expansive library of musical exercises and songs that are perfect for making your practicing more efficient and your playing sound better. Over the last two years I’ve started to see her as less of a violin teacher and more of a violin guru. I high recommend her to any new/old violin student.

I learned to play the violin when I was six through the Suzuki method and have enjoyed playing with small ensembles an orchestras ever since. My goal when working with students is to provide them a vehicle for self expression and getting them beyond the notes on the page.
I normally teach out of my home in North Raleigh but travel to students homes in the morning hours. I specialize in teaching young children ages 3+

About Ellen
One of my primary goals teaching violin is to instill a love for music in my students and provide them with a vehicle for self expression. My interest in the violin started when I was 6 years old. I discovered quickly that playing music was a wonderful way for me to express myself. Through my violin I could speak an entirely different language.
I have played the violin for over 30 years and have been playing with various community orchestras and ensembles throughout my adult life, including the Windsor Community Orchestra, Orchestra Toronto (Ontario, Canada) and the Peninsula Symphony (San Mateo, California). I am a registered violin teacher with the Suzuki Association of the Americas and have received teacher training from the Southwestern Ontario Suzuki Institute and the Suzuki Institute of Montreal.
Over the last 8 years my focus
has been on children. I have three children of my own and have worked very closely with kids and their families at the preschool and elementary school level as a teacher assistant, parent volunteer, board member and more recently as a private violin teacher. Seeing a child's capacity to learn, witnessing their keenness to observe and their ability to adapt has ignited my desire to guide children in their creative expression, to reach their full potential.

Becki has taught violin to my nieces and nephew for many years and they are all exceptional musicians as a result. While a beginning adult student, I got a few words of advice about my playing from Becki at an informal musical event which we both attended. I was smitten. The instruction she shared was exquisite! I immediately understood what a great teacher is. When I said that I wished that I lived closer so that I too could study with her, she responded, "We could do it over Skype!" And so we do. I've been studying Suzuki violin with her since. I'm so grateful that the technology is available to us to make this possible.
