I love playing and teaching the violin, and I'm so excited to share my experience with you! I have over a decade of experience with students of all backgrounds and experience levels. My time at The Juilliard School has prepared me well for whatever challenge you would like to take on together. Whether that is growing your love of the instrument, learning a new piece, finding better practice skills, or audition preparation.

Congratulations on taking an amazing first step into learning the violin, and I look forward to meeting you in our first lesson.

Jocelyn has been an absolute inspiration to me during our lessons. I was a bit nervous trying digital lessons with a new teacher, but she was an INCREDIBLE help to me as a violinist. Definitely book a few lessons with her.

I'm really enjoying my lessons with Jocelyn. I can tell I'm getting better much faster than the last time I tried to pick up the violin. She is a great teacher

Mr. Aragon has continually shown me his love for music through his teaching. As an instructor, he paid close attention to my technique when playing the piano, guitar, or flute, and helped me improve it. Through the years, he has strongly influenced my love for music, and I continue to use what he has taught me when playing instruments and music outside the classroom. Overall, Mr. Aragon is a great, professional instructor who is passionate about teaching students music through music theory and his love of rock n roll and classical music.

I went for my first lesson this morning & John was excellent! Very professional & informative. I look forward to more upcoming lessons in the following weeks!!!

Mr.Aragon was my son’s grade school music teacher for 8 yrs. He is very patient and encouraging, and my son really enjoyed it when Mr.Aragon would teach the class music from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Now my son appreciates Motown, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, and Billy Joel as much as he does current alternative music, and he is 13!

Each lesson will be taught in response to current needs of a student but the following are the parts that make up an entire lesson:
- Technique
- Theory
- Music
- Practice
All together are basic fundamentals.

My job as a teacher is to help you find a place for music in your daily life and to make a practice time more of an experimental discovery play, than boring work. Once you find a key, it opens up a whole new world of communication.

As a private violin instructor, I believe that education is impossible without student’s motivation and passion. Perhaps you have decided to become a professional musician or maybe you want to play for your own enjoyment... Whatever your goals are, I can lead you there! Let's make it happen together because it is never late to follow a dream!

I recommend younger children travel to me for the best learning experience.

About Zhana

I have been a freelance violinist and a professional violin teacher for the past 30 years. Playing in the orchestra and teaching students are two of my greatest passions in life. As a private violin instructor, I firmly believe that education is impossible without student motivation and passion. A

For more than two years I have taken weekly online violin lessons from Zhana. I am not only delighted with the enjoyable experience of the lessons themselves but am also grateful for how Zhana has greatly enhanced my technical ability, freedom in playing and sense of musical accomplishment.

I have taken in person lessons from several teachers over the span of many years and I can honestly say that none of these have advanced my abilities as efficiently and effectively as my online lessons with Zhana.

I began lessons with Zhana because, even though I was taking regular in-person lessons at the time, I was frustrated struggling with making progress due to years of accumulated bad habits which had gone uncorrected by other instructors. These habits hindered my ability to play expressively, led me to procrastinate practicing and limited the range of music available to me. So, not knowing what to expect, I decided give online lessons a try as a supplement to my regular in person lessons.

One difference with in person lessons is that, because of the slight but significant time lag involved in most internet connections, simultaneous accompaniment by the instructor isn’t often a very workable teaching option for on-line lessons Because of this limitation online lessons require, in my view, an experienced and focused instructor who has an ability to observe and communicate.

Instructors with these qualifications may not be available in your local neighborhood but Zhana is just such a person. She has patiently and perceptively identified and corrected my accumulated bad habits, helped me develop my technical abilities beyond my expectations, provided me with a concrete approach to and enthusiasm for regular practice and guided me into a larger world of repertoir and musical expression.

After two years of lessons from Zhana I consider myself indeed fortunate to have found a teacher who demonstrates such ability and enthusiasm for teaching, such genuine interest in and concern for me as a student, and such a kind and empathetic attitude towards me as a person.

I encourage violinists, both those who are just beginning and would like to benefit from learning proper technique from the outset, (rather than have to painfully unlearn bad habits later on) and intermediate to advanced players, who would like to take advantage of the conservatory level instruction that she provides, to contact Zhana for a lesson.
Sarah
Zhana is very attentive and a great teacher! I have already learned so much from 4 lessons and can't wait to continue.
Jennifer
Zhana has been a great teacher so far. I just finished week 3 and I can play twinkle, twinkle little star. She is really patience.

Online Violin Teacher

I have 21 years of experience playing/studying violin under my belt, 2 degrees from top conservatories, and 6 years of teaching experience with all levels -- complete beginners (children and adults alike), intermediate, and advanced. I love what I do and my goal is to share the beauty of music and violin playing with all of my students!

My teaching approach is entirely individualized; I do not subscribe to the one-size-fits-all mindset. I find each student's strengths and use them to help inspire their musical weaknesses.
Along with my lessons, I offer free consultations and Q&A outside of the classroom. I'm invested in and care about my student's musical and personal well-being.

I got to take lessons with Tammy in my freshman year of college and it was a great experience! She was so nice and patient with me when I couldn't get things right and would really look at things that weren't working and try to figure out exactly what wasn't working so that we can fix it.
Tiffany
I had the pleasure of taking lessons from Tammy during my sophomore year of college when I studied violin performance at the University of Michigan. She is an *incredible* musician and I was always blown away when I heard her play. Whenever I brought challenging music to her, she simplified them for me and showed me how to best practice them. She brought me to a new level of technique and understanding of music.

I highly recommend Tammy as a teacher. She is so patient, fun, and down to earth.

"Lin teaches my 6 year old son the beginning level violin lessons in fluent English. She is very patient, dedicated, professional, has an excellent understanding of music and a good musicality. Within the 6 months of learning, my son can play many lovely songs, like Jingo Bells, Odd to Joy. He has made tremendous improvement, and can move his fingers on G, D, and A string freely, and can read the notes faster than we do. Lin provides different versions of violin classes, one for adults and the other for kids. She is a wonderful teacher, helps us enhance our knowledge of musical theory and definitely violin too. We highly recommend her."

I've wanted to learn since I was a kid, but I was not motivated with my previous teachers and now as an adult beginner I am finding it easier than I thought. Mr. Sal breaks it down so that it isn't as hard to learn anymore and I am making leaps and strides. These last 6 months have gotten me ready to play Jingle Bells for my family over the holidays along with my other pieces and I am excited to show them what I've learned.

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. Even adults can run into problems when selecting the right size. Fortunately, after a little research, selectin …
