I am very strict and laid back at the same time. I pay a lot of attention to the technical detailes

.The curriculum is based on the level the student is presently. It reneges from simple scale books to Paganini caprices.

I encourage every student to have at list two recitals a year. Lessons are very intense and productive and i welcome you to my studio.

I had a great first lesson with Armen.
He immediately identified some areas of improvement and I really liked his style which is rigorous, demanding and rewarding at the same time.
Can't wait to our next lesson,

About Larisa K.

Hercules, CA
View Full Profile

Violin, viola instructor, performing art.
Classical music. Mostly traditional Russian method of violin teaching, also Suzuki.

About Larisa
Began violin lessons at age 8.
At age 15 was accepted into the elite program at the School of Music in Odessa, Ukraine.
Continued on to one of the premier music Universities in the world: Kiev State Conservatory, where I received a Masters degree in Teaching and Performing arts.
Throughout my higher education I have held Violin Instructor positions first at the Kiev Music School and then at the Conservatory.

My Professional Career in Ukraine and USA includes performance with numerous symphony and chamber groups, such as Kiev Chamber Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Opera, San Jose Symphony.
I am passionate and dedicated to my Art which is reflected in my teaching style and in the results my students consistently achieve.
My ultimate goal as an instructor
is to convey to my students the beauty of making music. I define success to be the ability to see the joy that playing for yourself and others brings to you and your audience.

*** Lesson Details ***
My Method and Goals:

Proper technique is the key to producing extraordinary sound and growing as a violist. I ensure that my students gain solid understanding of these fundamentals first and foremost.
A significant part of the first few lessons will be devoted to developing proper posture and hold of the instrument. A good violinist must be relaxed to prevent muscle tension and produce those rich, spellbinding notes. Soon the instrument begins to feel like an extension of the hands, and students begin to progress much quicker, seeing (and hearing) surprising results.
I can follow the Suzuki method if requested, but much prefer principles of the Russian School. I will be happy to discuss the benefits of each with you.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***

I highly reccommend Kenton! My 10 year old son has been taking lessons online for the past couple of months. My son is an absolute beginner, however, is progressing quickly through the curriculum. Kenton is a fantastic teacher, knowledgable, patient, and kind. He keeps the lessons fun, age appriopriate and challenging. Choosing Kenton as our Mountain Dulcimer instructor has been the best decision for us. Give Kenton a try; you won't regret it!

I have been playing the violin for over 18 years and graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Music Education in 2016. My instrumental emphasis in college was the violin. I am a professional violin player and have played in youth, college, and church orchestras, string ensembles, string groups, musicals, plays, choirs, and weddings. I have extensive knowledge and a teaching and performance background to give my students all of the knowledge they will need in learning the violin. The violin is one of the hardest instruments in the world to learn and takes years to master. With the right teacher and the right motivation, the student will be able to master this incredible and amazing instrument.

About Clarissa
Hi! My name is Ms. Clarissa Romero and I have been teaching music for 11 years! I have taught privately, for churches, and for a music school. I also obtained a Bachelors Degree in Music Education (Instrumental Emphasis) in 2016. I have a love and passion for music and aspire to pass down that love and passion to every single one of my students! One thing I love to share with my students is that music is fun to learn! In my experience, too many teachers are rigid in their teaching and not able to see the learning process from a student's view. I always take into account each of my student's views and aspirations along with incorporating an encouraging regimen to help the student learn not only effectively, but to do so wholeheartedly with a love and passion for music. I can't wait to get started with you on our musical journey!

About Vladislav E.

Bloomington, IN

It is always a pleasure to see my students develop their skills and deeper interest in music. I believe that everyone can perform starting with simple solo pieces of 2-5 minutes long. This experience is rewarding for self development and artistic growth. I remember always playing for my classmates in high school and enjoying it a lot. Making new friends and sharing music is part of being musician and playing musical instrument. I enjoy creativity and imagination in playing music, since every melody has its personality and character, it is like an improvisational storytelling with different narratives. When teaching, it is very important to feel comfortable and and to have proper posture. I always make sure that my students play freely without any tension. This is quite interesting topic and complex, so in a few words, before to start playing the instrument it is essential to know how your body and muscles work.  I took Alexander technique class at IU which helped me to realize the ...

Lessons with Vlad were extremely helpful and I received a good insight on how to practice and what changes I need to make in my playing to succeed. He helped me to correct my technique and I was able to overcome specific technical challenges which affected my playing before. In a few words, I feel that my practice changed and became much more efficient than before, I very much appreciate his support.

I am a student at the Eastman School of Music, and have been learning in the presence of some of the best teachers in the country.

Im a graduate student at East Carolina University working on my masters in violin performance. Between undergrad and grad school I maintained a private violin studio of about 25 students for five years and am certified by the Suzuki association to teach their method through book four. In lessons I’m a big advocate for playing with ease. Playing violin can often times feel like your fighting with yourself but with good technique, it can be a joyful fulfilling experience.

About Adam
I'm a graduate student at ECU studying masters in violin performance. In between undergrad and grad school, I maintained a private studio of about 23 students for five years, and am currently certified by the Suzuki association to teach their method through book 4. Choosing to play violin was the best decision I ever made. I started when I was 11 and haven’t looked back ever since. Having violin as the constant through all the wonderful, trying, and even confusing parts of my life has made me a better person. Now I don’t expect all my students to have the same experience as I did, but nothing makes me happier than to bring the joy I’ve developed with violin to other people’s lives. I teach the songs from the Suzuki method, and supplement them with appropriate sight reading books. Playing violin is more about finding which muscles NOT t
o use rather than which ones TO use so your good instincts about what to do when playing can shine through.
