I have been taking lessons with Ashlyn for about 7 months now and she has truly been the best violin teacher I could have hoped for! She is not only good at teaching and helping me improve my playing, but she is also a really nice person and we get along very well. I look forward to every lesson and always learn a lot and have fun. Unfortunately, I leave for college soon so I will no longer be able to take lessons with Ashlyn, I will miss her a lot.

We are very happy with Ms. Ashlyn. She has a great manner with my 8 year old, who looks forward to her violin classes and wants to practice for her teacher :)

Private Viola Teacher

Beginners typically take 60 minute classes once per week at a recurring time. Young children typically take half hour classes and older children, adult musicians and those on a budget typically take 45 minute classes. The most common lesson length to start with is 60 minutes, as the teacher will need to tune your instrument and help you get set up. Some students choose to take lessons twice per week when a concert is coming up, to catch up from a vacation or if they just want to make faster progress.

In class, you will learn new techniques, receive guidance on how to achieve the best sound possible and learn songs that you like and that interest you. You are expected to take this guidance and practice it thoroughly at home until you feel comfortable with it, so that when you are in class next, the teacher can move on to a new concept or skill which builds upon the skill practiced at home. They will only move you forward once you can do the more basic technique.

About Antoinette

In-Person lessons are back! I am happy to say that not only do I love my job, but my passion in life has always been teaching. I spend 12-15 hours a day either teaching violin, educating myself on the newest methods and materials, or helping my students outside of class. Your success means e

Antoinette is, by far, the best music instructor that I have ever hired. Music has always been a part of my life. As a child, I took piano lessons for years and continued on and off through college. As a complete novice to the violin, I was nervous to begin such a challenging instrument as an adult hobby. Antoinette is encouraging, intelligent and incredibly skilled. Her calm demeanor and patience is vital to one's success. She focuses on the building blocks to a successful technique with ease. I am incredibly grateful to Antoinette for reminding me of how enjoyable music can be. I look forward to our weekly sessions around my busy work schedule. Her location is conveniently located within walking distance from the subway in NYC.
Tonia
I took violin lessons for a year with an instructor I found through a different organization (not TakeLessons)--and I learned more in one hour with Antoinette than I learned in 30 lessons with that other teacher. In just one lesson, I can see that Antoinette is friendly, smart, encouraging, knows her stuff--and knows how to teach (which not every good player can do). I'm an adult, but I bet she'd be just as great with a student of any age.

Experienced violist who has been playing for 14 years. I have only had young students in the past, but I am willing to teach adults as well. If you're a beginner, I would love to help you get started and introduce you into all the wonderful music for the violin and viola! I will take the time to find music you specifically enjoy and adjust to your tastes. I care very much about helping you find an ear for music and finding your favorite styles! We'll be learning about technique, intonation, note reading, and of course, music theory. Please contact me if you'd like to see what I can teach you!

LisaJo is an extraordinary violin teacher. She is helpful, positive and interesting during lessons. She helps students progress with perceptive comments and targeted studies.

Catherine has been a terrific violin instructor for both my 14 year old daughter and 13 year old son. She is very passionate and methodical in keeping them motivated and engaged in learning the violin. She has been great and the kids love her as a teacher. I highly recommend Catherine for anyone considering an online violin teacher for their teenage kids.

My daughter has resumed her violin playing now that she has lessons with Catherine. She had stopped for a year, and after a few lessons her tone started to sound just like it was when she left off. She improves with each virtual lesson, but most importantly she really enjoys them. I also appreciate that we can schedule lessons
at intervals other than weekly. Thank you, Catherine!

I have learned more from Adam than I had from my two previous mandolin teachers. He is very knowledgeable and skilled in all of the instruments he teaches.
Bob
I play guitar in a local band and we decided we needed mandolin on this part, so I put an ad in Craigslist. Long story short the guy we hired to do the part turns out was a teacher. I always wanted to learn the fiddle so I thought a couple lessons would be enough, but this guy knows so much and so many styles that I'm hooked. I live in Greenfield, so most of my lessons are online
Wendy
I asked at Downtown Sounds in Northampton who is the best fiddle teacher in western MA. Joe said "Adam Sweet". I called and he responded promptly. I must say, he's very patient and knowledgeable. I've been taking lessons now from Mr. Sweet since 2009 when he was teaching in South Hadley

"As a 30-something adult beginner, I chose Nick as my teacher for his experience and talent. When we had our first few lessons, I knew he was the real deal. He knows his orchestral string instruments, especially my instrument of choice: the viola. I was even more impressed since he has performed with musicians like Chuck Mangione, Barbara Cook, and Andrea Bocelli. He has made my lessons fun, exciting, and very engaging. I highly recommend Nick to anyone wanting to learn a string instrument!"
