Great Teacher!!!

Diego is truly like no other. He is utterly genuine and glowing, with a heart of gold. He takes genuine interest in others' well-beings and happiness. His sense of humor is radiant and immediately puts you at ease. Being a consummate performer himself, he is able to express his thoughts and views with clarity and grace. Diego is a force of positive energy that never fails to influence, inspire, and warm the hearts of all those he teaches, befriends, or meets. A one of a kind find!
Antoinette A. New York, NY

Though "fiddle" and "violin" are technically the same thing, the two are different styles of playing. Fiddle music focuses on either country music and Irish/Celtic music. Fiddle is one of the more fun aspects of the violin.

About Antoinette

The best violin teacher in Manhattan. I pride myself on my long years of experience, friendly attitude, never-ending patience but mostly my ability to get along with others while still be an exacting, effective teacher. I work based on results, which is exactly what you will experience after Lesson 1. *** Lesson Details *** By the first lesson, you will be playing the violin. By the end of the second lesson, you will usually be playing a song. By the end of the second month, you will be comfortable reading and playing easy music. *** Studio Equipment *** 4/4 Violin for rental or sale 3/4 Violin for rental or sale 1/2 Violin for rental or sale 1/4 Violin for rental or sale 1/8 Violin for rental or sale Violin accessories (bows, rosin, strings, books, music) *** Travel ...

Joanna M. Brooklyn, NY

About Joanna

Music has the power to uncover the beauty all around us. It can strengthen our bonds with other people. It can raise us out of low, lost places. It can be a filter that brightens our view of our daily lives. Learning an instrument or any discipline brings to the learner opportunities for growth and improvement. It also provides a space for self-reflection. Rarely in our daily lives are we encouraged to face ourselves- to meet head on with our strengths and weaknesses. Learning any instrument can help reveal these things to us and allow us to address them in a more objective way. We can build discipline, develop problem-solving skills, and find confidence. If learned with the right approach, the instrument can be an external indicator of our internal growth. In addition to all ...

Fantastic teacher. Tons of positive energy and encouragement. Very willing to help me work on songs of my own choosing and able to figure them out in just a few minutes. With her we worked on country style fiddling.

Joanna is a very good violin instructor. She's very clear when she is teaching my daughter. Would very much recommend her to teach other students.

Concetta was such a treat to have in our home! She came out all the way from NY to NJ for my mothers birthday, and though she is a beginner, emerged from the 1 hour lesson so inspired to keep practicing, able to fully complete her first song! She even did a little performance at the end on the lesson! She is a great people person, fun to talk to, and she really knows her stuff. Excellent choice!

I have learned more in just three lessons with Concetta than I learned after three months of once a week lessons with an instructor from a music store.

Concetta has a natural gift to teach and an ability to allow even a musical novice, like me, understand basic music theory.

This talented young lady eat, sleeps and breathes music.

Mandolin · Online
Verified Student
When I met Concetta online, I had never played the Mandolin before. Now after 4 going on 5 months I am in the beginning stages of learning Vivaldi's Concerto for Mandolin. This feat was accomplished by Concetta's knowledge, understanding and compassion for this student who was clumsy, awkward and with little self confidence. I now know where I want to go with the Mandolin and with Concetta's guidance and wisdom, I know I will be given a strong foundation to achieve it. This has been the best experience for me and I know it will also be for you as well....:)
Nicholas P. Brooklyn, NY

Fiddle lessons incorporate the same technical foundation as violin studies, with greater emphasis on improvisation, folk songs, and jazz scales.

About Nicholas

Welcome! I am a full-time violin/viola teacher from New York and a registered member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I am an active performer of contemporary and classical music, and my commitment is to instill my students with both a passion for playing music and a strong technical foundation. My teaching method is tailored to each student's individual learning style and motivation for playing. The first question I will ask at every first lesson is: what music do you love? This can be one song - a nursery rhyme, classical melody, or popular song - or a genre of music. Regardless of age, I believe that the most effective path for learning violin or viola is to start with the music! For younger children, I suggest beginning with the Suzuki method in order to establish ...

As helpful as they come, Nick has bent over backwards to make sure our 6-yr-old daughter was outfitted with the right violin and bow. As an absolute beginner when she began a couple of months ago, she's impressing us now with her new skills.

Instructor/Teacher/Friend; I do not know where to begin with this tutor of music from The Celestial Spheres. He is my own Orphic Music Instructor. In that he 'Inspires", and makes one want to practice and go with him! It's a conception easily understood, once you get going with him in learning. And if you know? Well! You'll know far more. And this can be said on all levels.
I don't know if these comments are actually looked at or reviewed in some way, but he's a raw talent in many ways, and I can see for All ages :)
