I started playing Violin at age five which lead me to study a bachelor of performing arts at WAAPA, Australia.

From there my music has taken me all around the world, playing in Orchestras in Australia, Europe and now America. The US government granted me an extraordinary ability visa in music, recognizing me as one of the best performers from my home country which allows me to teach and perform music in America.

I love passing on my knowledge to new students to help them grow as musicians, nothing is more satisfying to see someone learn how to play an instrument and watch them really enjoy the process.

About James
I started my musical career at the age of 2, on the piano, shortly afterwards moving to the violin, and the viola. Earning the music scholarship at school for best classical musician, and later on the scholarship for best orchestral instrumentalist at the world renowned music conservatoire WAAPA (West Australia Academy of Performing Arts). Earning my first diploma (A.Mus.A) at age 14, my music has taken me all around the world. I've played such places as the Australian High Commission, Rheingoldhalle in Mannhein, Dvorak hall in Prague, Australian embassy in London, Disneyland in Paris, and the opening the Australian embassy in Berlin, all before the age of 18.

Most recently through my many musical endeavors, I have been granted a visa of extraordinary ability as musician to enter the United States.

Since then I have lead the LADSO
viola section, played with the West LA Symphony Orchestra, played alongside Laryn Hill, a show presented by Quincy Jones, played in movie orchestras, recorded for studio sessions, performed electronic violin for private parties and nightclubs across the US.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching music since age 11. My mother is a concert pianist and I started off by teaching her students the violin. I have taught ever since and I love it. I have studied in Australia, Europe and the US.

I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Violin, Viola, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I will help source and instruments and materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music. I also teach other styles of music including improv, how to play pop music and can help you reach any musical goal. In Australia I used the AMEB syllabus. Which is the Australian examination system for music. I also teach Suzuki method and similar methods. I like creating a great foundation with a lot of exercises and scale patterns to really build up a solid base.

Hendersonville, NC

I began privately instructing students while I was still in high school. Thirty years later, my studio teaching experience continues to instill a passion for music and students that are performing in their own venues in school and the community. Knowing that the time I have with each person is leading them to grow and share their own abilities with others is truly the heart of where I think musical instruction should lead.

About Kendra
Hello. My name is Kendra and I have been performing and teaching professionally for over 25 years. Utilizing the Suzuki curriculum and supplemental methods, I like to provide a solid technical foundation as well as tailor each lesson to my students' personal musical interests and goals including classical, Irish and Bluegrass fiddle styles, jazz, blues, and popular music.

I'm an older, experienced player that has had some specific problems after returning to violin after a long hiatus. I was concerned most with my vibrato and a bouncing bow. Kendra zeroed right in on those problems and they were resolved in just three lessons. Kendra is patient, knowledgeable and perfect for an adult player at any level. I imagine she is fantastic with younger players, as well.

Without Karen by my son's side, I don't think he would've gone as far as he did! After just a few years, he was hired to perform solo at a wedding. She made the lessons fun and enjoyable for him, while always encouraging him to do better! We were so sad to see her leave and miss her terribly!

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 23 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

**Studio Equipment**
violins, viola, mandolin, recording equipment

About Elias
At 5 years old I was struck by the incredible beauty of Vivaldi's music, and ever since I've been playing violin. I hold a BA from Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences, won a scholarship to the Baroque Performance Institute in 2005 and attended the BPI again in 2006. Apart from teaching, as a professional musician performing in Southern California I am well versed both in classical violin and various fiddle styles ranging from bluegrass, Celtic and old-time to rock, pop and blues. I also play viola and mandolin and write music.

Winston Salem, NC

Hello! I am a trained Special Education teacher who has been playing the violin for 24 years. I have experience playing in community and competitive orchestras, and have received professional training. Currently I am playing in the Salem Community Orchestra. I use a blended style of teaching, and tailor instruction based on where the student is at.

Not only do I understand how to teach children, I have experience teaching adults the basics of music theory.

I am willing to drive to your home after 6PM, or weekend mornings, when my husband is home from work.

I can't wait to get to know you!!

About Victoria
My name is Victoria Bartholomew and I am excited to start working with new students! I've been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have loved watching my students grow at their individual pace.

I went to the University of Utah and earned a degree in Special Education in 2013. I am easy going and dedicated to my student's success. My teaching style is casual, fun, and moves at the pace of the student. I find that it's very important to match the student's time and comfort level before assigning skills to work on. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

For musical lessons, I typically lean towards more traditional teaching methods but am quick to blend different methods based on student needs. Instead of forcing theory, I enjoy teaching theory in a practical way. Incorporating musical theory that is meaningful for a s
pecific piece of music tends to lead to better memorization and increased understanding.

I am currently participating in the Salem Philharmonic Orchestra and taking my own advanced violin lessons to continually improve my teaching ability. However I previously have experience playing for private weddings, in small groups, fiddle music, and traditional orchestras. I also play the piano and trombone, but don't offer lessons on those instruments at this time.

Learning a musical instrument should be fun, exciting, and most importantly pain-free.

About Chaul
I have been playing the violin for over 24 years. I like to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students regardless of their age. I would prefer beginners to take at least one year of piano lessons prior to learning how to the play the violin. This way students can transfer basic music knowledge into violin playing, especially in the field of reading and learning new music. My goal is to help music lovers learn how to teach themselves one day when a music teacher is no longer available.

I started teaching in 2011 while I was completing the Master of Music degree at Rice University. As I finished my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in December 2017, I decided to build and expand my own studio in Burleson, TX.

Thank you Chaul for a great lesson and also for being so patient with me when my computer didn't log into the session right away. I enjoyed my first lesson and am excited to have such a fabulous teacher that sent me material and information to prepare for my first session. I feel confident that I will be able to progress and I know that I will enjoy learning with you. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

I love seeing my students discover and develop their love for the violin as they progress on this beautiful instrument. The violin is difficult! It takes dedication and practice.

All levels and all ages welcome.

Corie is not only a world class musician, but also a world class teacher. Her approach is very thoughtful and she will tailor your lessons to best fit your child's needs and growth (and she teaches adults too). Her warmth, personal investment in the student, and great sense of humor makes lessons both engaging and fun. She loves kids of all ages and is someone you can count on. If you are ready to work hard and want a teacher that will be able to open all sorts of amazing musical opportunities to you, this is the teacher for you. Studying with Corie is a great opportunity and I wholeheartedly recommend lessons with her!

Corie was my daughter's first private violin teacher, and she was the perfect foundation for not just the love of the instrument but also the precise technique and skills needed to develop a true musician. Even years later, my daughter's current teachers are impressed with the solid foundation she received under Corie's tutelage. Corie made learning a challenging instrument fun at an age-appropriate level without giving up on any high standards. Whether it was learning to read music, developing ear and intonation, or perfecting a bow hold, Corie had multiple ways to teach, to address habits and difficulties, and to share experiences with the larger studio in group lessons. We still use her teaching reminders and phrases during practices sessions. With Corie's violin lessons, you get more than just basic instruction; you get a well-rounded introduction to true musicianship.

Why Are There Different Violin Sizes, and Why Does it Matter?

One of the main concerns that violin students and their parents typically have is purchasing the right-sized violin. Obviously you can't give a five-year-old a full-size violin and expect him or her to be able to handle the instrument. And once kids are in their teenage years, trying to keep up with growth spurts can be extremely difficult, especially considering how much violins cost.
