I have been teaching violin for 3 years. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons this year, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever.

I teach using the Suzuki Method and See Saw exercise books. I love to teach students of any age - adults and kids. For younger students, I recommend a parent be present to help with lesson setup and note-taking. You're welcome to sit in on the whole lesson or just the first and last 5 minutes or so.

Also, I love introducing students to alternative styles of violin. Want to learn how to play in a rock band? I can help! Want to play by ear and jam? We can do that too!

No matter your end goal, we'll work on posture and playing technique to help you achieve a beautiful sound and comfortable playing. We'll also work on basic music theory and note-reading.

I look forward to meeting you!

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

I have a unique background in that I didn't go to a typical 4 year conservatory, but I was able to procure a job with the First Violin Section of The Philadelphia Orchestra. I have a very practical teaching style that I believe is effective with every level of violinist. Many of my students have won auditors at every level from District and Youth Orchestras to full scholarships to major Conservatories to jobs with Major Symphony Orchestras!

About Richard

My name is Richard Amoroso. I am a longtime member of First Violin Section of The Philadelphia Orchestra. Even longer than that, I am a Certified Music Teacher. The road to my success is less traveled in that I didn't attend a formal Conservatory. I attended a liberal arts college and completed a BA

As an adult learner who has always been interested in the violin, I have really enjoyed my experience with Mary-Elizabeth. She is a positive, patient, and encouraging teacher. We have been doing virtual lessons together and I am very impressed with how well she is able to offer corrections to my sound, posture, bow placement, etc... through a computer screen. It just goes to show how knowledgeable she is at her craft. I highly recommend Mary-Elizabeth for violin lessons.

There is a potential in every person to be truly great at any one thing. All it takes is hard work and honest determination, with determination being the most important. Because where determination comes, hard work follows naturally.
I hope to inspire my students to really love making music and being creative with their instruments. I can give my students all the information in the world and tips on how to improve at violin playing, but in the end it will not matter if the student has no desire to improve. And that is why I love to teach- inspiring students to love what they do!

Abigail is a very helpful and patient teacher! She explains new concepts in a way that I can understand and she gives many helpful tips for practicing the pieces. She makes me want to practice and does a great job at helping me sound the best I can.
Jingyi
I love Abi’s class!! She is a great teacher and easy to work with. She is also very flexible to teach anything that you want to play. One of the best thing of her class is she always send you a class note after each class, which is very helpful for you to review and remind you what you’ve learned or tips from the class! I highly recommend her!
Layla
Abigail is a amazing teacher! Even though we were learning through online she made it fun and educational. She explained and gave examples that helped me understand and look at things in a different ways. She is very easy to talk to, kind, and funny person. Like I said I was learning with her online and l would absolutely want to work with in person.

How Long Does it Take to Learn Violin?

  Wouldn’t it be great to learn to play an instrument in minutes? Think of the musical repertoire you would have! Unfortunately, like many different skill sets, that simply isn’t the case. Learning to play an instrument, as with driving and hitting a great shot on the golf course, is all about practice. The more you practice, the faster you learn, and the better you play. And the violin, a wooden chordophone with a beautiful soprano sound, takes time to learn, just like any other ins …
