It is so important to learn from a real professional. I am international soloist and pedagogue, having studied with the world's greatest teachers, Ivan Galamian, Dorothy DeLay, Josef Gingold, etc. international violin competitions winner. It is very easy to get faulty instruction at any stage of the development. Mine is of the highest of quality. I can teach from beginner to the most advanced. Have been teaching for 40+ years.

Dr. Kim is a encyclopedia of Galamian based knowledge.
Dr. YJ Cho
It’s been a long time since i first met Dr. Chin Kim, however, I clearly remember how his lesson was so scientifically approached and technically making sense in every details. Since then, I kept playing for him and got much ideas and much help from him which I still do time to time.
Although enough of his degrees, he constantly studies the music (I also have seen him taking a music theory class) and he is very diligent in self-enrichment.
Dr. Kim is very friendly to his students and he could be a good adviser not only in playing the violin but in elsewise, too.
I hope lots of musicians get a chance to meet him and play for him. I guarantee it’s worth much
Dr. Choi
You will not be disappointed with Dr. Kim. I have studied with him for nearly 10 years and he is one or the greatest violin pedagogues. He is great with both teaching techniques and musicality. He is the best not only with the music but also, he really cares about his students. So after knowing him for 20 years, I still play for him from time to time and ask for his advice. I am a professional violinist and pedagogue, and I wouldn’t have been where I am now without my dear teacher Dr. Chin Kim!

Online Violin Teacher

Recently graduated from Juilliard, I've been teaching violin and viola for five years, and welcome students of all levels and ages. My background is firmly classical, but additionally I also love fiddle music and give students songs from many genres to learn, arranging upon request. I'm currently a doctoral student at USC, and I work part-time locally as a violinist in the YMF Debut Orchestra. I am also glad to help students with recording, video editing and social media.

About Alexander

As a violin teacher, I always aim to set goals for students, to guide students towards them, and to be direct as possible so far as is appropriate. I also try to stay results-oriented throughout the process. Even if not all of a student’s progress is directly attributable to me, the most important

I really appreciated Alexander teaching me violin. He was basically my first instructor and he was always patient and motivating. He accommodated my unique needs as an adult beginner and brought me far in a short time. He was a little challenged to balance teaching with his heavy school load, but I appreciated his willingness to take the time to teach and help others.

I am a very organized, patient, and friendly teacher. I truly believe everybody has the potential to be a musical person. I love working with beginners and focus on giving them all the tools they need for a good foundation that they can build upon for a lifetime of enjoying music. As a teacher, I am always reading books on violin technique, pedagogy, and looking for new methods/pieces so I can offer a wide array of music to learn. I am a teacher who can offer both structure and freedom to explore your own musical taste.

About Lindsay

Since then, I have worked for multiple studios in the southern Maine area. I also teach K-5 general music. I perform with my weddin

"I took violin lessons from Kris for nearly two years, until moving out of LA. He is an extremely talented musician and teacher. During these lessons, my violin technique and musical expression both considerably improved. Kris is very patient, and able to teach multiple methods to successfully master various violin techniques (such as vibrato). Through implementing improvisation into the lessons, Kris can also bring out the student's musical creativity and confidence, which not only helps aspiring composers, but guides violin students in adding expression to the music they're currently learning. He encourages students to challenge themselves, but effectively teaches all of the techniques necessary to accomplish their musical goals.

He is also a brilliant composer, and is an excellent composition teacher as well! Although my lessons were mostly focused on violin, he provided much useful advice for improving my compositions for orchestra and symphonic band as well.

I highly recommend Kris as an instructor for music students of any proficiency level!"

"Jaclyn is a natural when it comes to teaching, and interacting with children. She had so much patience, and confidence when tutoring my child. I thought it would be hard for my child to learn how to play the Violin, just because it's one of the more difficult instruments, but shes playing as if shes been taking lessons for months! ( its only been a few weeks). I definitely recommend this service. Thank you Jaclyn!"

It is out of sheer luck that TakeLessons.com introduced me

decades too late, and yet with Blythe's patience and her

Age or Aptitude: When to Start Violin Lessons

Some start optimistically young, others driven by passion start much later in life, but when is the right time to start violin lessons? Like any other form of art, there’s simply no black or white when it comes to exploring music. The right time to start can’t be measured exclusively by age. Some ambitious parents start their kids at the age of two, and while many go off to become YouTube sensations, a whole lot more tend to give up by the age of five. So what should you consider before div …
