Creative violin lessons that empower kids to play confidently, read music and rhythm with fluency, and develop a love for music and practicing on their own at-home!

About Lauren
My passions include collaborating with new musicians, playing music of all genres, working with composers on contemporary compositions, and traveling the country and world to play concerts.

I perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, as well as tour the North and South America, Europe, and Asia with my string quartet, the Mivos Quartet. I received my BM and MM from Eastman School of Music with academic Distinction and a degrees in Violin Performance and Literature.

As I live on the Upper East Side, scheduling/travel is flexible for me and easy to coordinate around my students' schedules. If there is a preferred lesson for your child not listed as "available" please feel free to inquire directly - we will find a time that works!

*** Lesson Details ***
Though experienced teaching
pre-K through collegiate levels and beyond, I specialize in teaching intermediate- and advanced-level students. In addition to weekly lessons, my students perform solos in recitals and are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular ensembles.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson-time is also devoted to preparing students for entrance and seating auditions, when applicable.

As a teacher, I re-evaluate and adapt my teaching methods on-the-spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique and nurturing their musical integrity, I am committed to empowering and assisting my students to develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

All of my students learn how to read music from the beginning of their playing. For addressing technique with young kids, I use fun pneumonic devices such as "pizza box hand," "flamingo arm," and "umbrella fingers," to help my students remember, identify, and visualize proper hand, arm, and finger placement. We practice note names and rhythm through singing and memorization games. With these activities, students practice at home on their own and advance weekly between lessons while developing a love for playing the violin.

In addition to my private studio, I teach at The Chamber Music Center of New York and am artist-in-residence at The Walden School.

Please contact TakeLessons to hear more about my teaching philosophy!

Lauren is an excellent teacher for adult students!

At the age of 54 I decided to purchase a violin and learn to play. I found Lauren Cauley through Takelessons.com and could not be more pleased with her!! She has taught me so much in my first four weeks. She's patient with me and encourages me when I get discouraged with my play. She is quick to answer the numerous questions I have. She is an extremely talented musician with a talent for teaching. She pushes me in my weekly assignments and ensures I've mastered one level before we move to the next. Thanks Lauren!!

It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed.

My violin and viola students study classical Russian technique--used by the best players in history. It involves efficient use of the body, both to avoid injury when playing and also to get the best possible sound from the instrument. Students progress in technique, musicality, and music theory.

About Elana
Hello,

My name is Elana. I'm a professional violinist and enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels. My students have ranged from ages 4-64. Their goals have ranged from pure enjoyment to those considering a career in music. My goal is to help each student play to the best of their abilities and for them to enjoy the lessons. Violin is my passion, which comes through in my enthusiasm during lessons. I am gentle and patient but also honest and very particular about what to look for when practicing.

I take great pride in teaching the Russian method. Not only is the technique I teach used by the best violinists of all time, it also emphasizes efficient and correct use of the body to avoid injury and develop a tone with richness and projection.

What I look for in a student is a commitment to practicing every day. It's an
adjustment in the beginning for many, but once established simply becomes part of the day, like brushing your teeth. Over time, students hear improvements from practicing consistently and this creates a very positive experience. The violin becomes a source of joy and confidence.

Violin lessons help develop skills such as coordination and focus at the highest level, persistence, confidence, creativity, patience, and many other "life" skills whose benefits extend far beyond music lessons. Many people who achieve success in a career outside music later in life often credit their music lessons as having been key in that process.

As far as my musical background, I received my music degree from Rutgers University, where I was a recipient of the Marryott Music Scholarship. Upon graduation I freelanced as a violinist in the NYC metro area. My major teachers include Neil Weintrob and Lewis Kaplan.

As a teacher I have 20 years of experience. I've worked in various programs and currently teach violin and viola lessons at a local private school, in addition to running a private studio of violin and piano students. My violin students have been concertmaster, principal players, and section players in orchestras such as All-County, Region I, and NY Youth Symphony.

Feel free to contact me with any additional questions you may have. I look forward to working with you.

Violin lessons will focus on technique and fundamentals in the context of the repertoire you are learning! You can expect to receive clear practice goals and I encourage a communicative dynamic among teacher and student.

About Patti
I am a professional violinist and violist based in New York City. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Violin Performance from New York University (with a minor in mathematics!) in 2010 and 2012, and am currently working on my Ph.D in Violin Performance at NYU.

As a teacher, I have taught students of all ages and levels of experience, ranging from beginner students to professional practitioners. I currently teach violin at Western Connecticut State University and New York University, and also maintain a private studio in the tristate area.

I believe that every student is different in how they progress and have a flexible approach to teaching, but do believe that awareness of technique and fundamentals is the key to progress. While working with me, students can expect clear guidelines regarding practice goals for a week,
and a communicative relationship between student and teacher. In an ideal teacher-student relationship, the student should always feel free to express to me if an approach is not working for them, or if they do not understand a concept explained in lessons! I am also willing to work with students regarding repertoire, and have experience with working with differently abled students.

As a performer, I make a point of engaging with a variety of classical and non-classical genres, including rock, pop, and jazz music. I currently play with an indie rock band called OWEL, and have also performed with contemporary music groups Alarm Will Sound, Argento New Music Project, ensemble mise-en, ETHEL, Hotel Elefant, Newspeak, Signal, The Wordless Music Orchestra, with the avant-rock Burning City Orchestra led by Noam Faingold, metal string quartet seven)suns, and the disco band Escort. I have also played in the company of a variety of artists spanning many genres, including Icelandic singer Björk, avant-jazz-funk band Medeski, Martin and Wood, Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead, the band Goldfrapp, Icelandic electronic artist Valgeir Sigurdsson, John Cale from the Velvet Underground, rock band Deep Purple, and Afro-Peruvian singer Eva Ayllón, in a variety of concert halls, bars, and living rooms, including Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Recital Center, Muziekgebouw a’ant Ij in Amsterdam, the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Merkin Hall, Roulette, Issue Project Room, Galapagos, Symphony Space, and Death by Audio.

Hey there explorer!

So you thought the violin is only meant to play Classical music? Think again!
With over 13 years of experience in improvisation in many different musical styles on the violin, I will show you the methods to explore and teach yourself any type of musical style you'd wish to play!

Although being mainly a Jazz violinist, I have performed and recorded in many different musical genres and improvisation styles including Blues, Trad Jazz, Rock, Indian Classical music, Bluegrass, Jewish Klezmer music and more. Since students spend most of their crucial development time individually in the practice room, as a teacher my biggest ambition is to teach my students 'how to be your own teacher' (I know it's kinda shooting myself in the foot :] ). Based on my 20 years experience playing the violin and other instruments, my training in Alexander technique, teaching artistry, psychology, philosophy and meditation, I've accumulated a set of methods and ideas about how to ...

About Omer
An award-winning Jazz violinist and a graduate of The Newschool of Jazz, These days I'm recording and performing on stages around the world playing Jazz, Rock, Folk and more.
Would love to share with you some of my secrets! Teaching improvisation and basic violin for all levels. Also teaching audition prep and ear training!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A few years ago a musician I really admire told me how he believes that every musician has to be teaching at some point in his career. He has seen it not only as a suggestion but as an obligation, a responsibility of an artist to pass on his knowledge for the next generations. My life circumstances only make this belief stronger within me year after year.

As a young Violinist in Israel that experienced a crisis with Class
ical music and the Classical school, I’ve been looking around for non-classical Violin teachers in vain. I’ve figured out that in order to play the music I want on the Violin I’m going to have to teach it to myself, thus becoming an independent learner which is most likely the greatest gift I’ve ever received as a musician and a teacher.
I had to read books, watch videos, ask people how they practice, use my ears because I had no scores to any of the music I wanted to play, explore. I had to criticize myself, I had to remain conscious about my playing and what I think is missing in my playing in comparison to other players, analyze what is it that excites me in one’s music or playing. Most of all, I had the privilege to remain attentive to any new idea being suggested to me, because no one ever taught me what the “truth” is.

Be your own teacher. That is perhaps the only “truth” I would force upon my students. As part of my teaching philosophy, I'm seeking to not only teach my students the skills they wish to acquire but to show them how to determine and teach themselves new skills they 'need' or desire to acquire.

With over 8 years of experience teaching private students of all levels and conducting Jazz violin workshops for small groups, I like to incorporate my knowledge in music teaching with other knowledge in learning techniques and education I've acquired through training in Psychology, leadership and education, Alexander technique, Teaching artistry, meditation and social work.

Omer is giving Violin lessons to my youngest son Eric for the last 6 months. Eric started playing the guitar a few years ago up until a movie he recently saw on a Japanese brilliant violinist , a week later he told us on his will to tryout the violin. Fortunately We heard Omer playing in a jazz club, and contacted him a few days after, Omer is a very talented musician but has unique capability and patient for his students. Omer is teaching with a very relaxed, positive attitude, his passion for music with small anecdotes and humour was what made Eric to get in love with the instrument and he is Impatiently waiting for his next lesson. we highly recommend Omer as a teacher and musician.

Omer helped me in preparing for my audition to the school of jazz in The Newschool, NY. Don't know my answer yet but Omer definitely helped me feel confident about my playing and be more coherent in my presentation in front of the judges. He showed me some techniques to be able to remain focused even under the stress of an audition of such significance for me and I feel like it really changed my performance for the better.

She has a particular interest in the development of young children, and, having moved to New York in 2017 from the San Diego Symphony to teach at the Brooklyn Music School, Rachyl is living her dream as a teacher. Her main goal for 2018-19 is to further this dream by expanding her studio. You/your child will receive consistent, dedicated care, individually tailored attention according to needs, abilities, and learning styles, and the inspiration to feed the brain and the soul with musical knowledge.

About Rachyl
Teaching is my passion, and the reason I moved to New York. From a young age I have always been deeply invested in the subjects of Development and Nurturing. I consider it my calling in life to pursue these subjects through teaching. My goal is always first and foremost to form a true connection with each individual student, observing their learning patterns carefully and trying different approaches until the student is thriving. My approach is continually positive, reinforcing excellent habits and achievements, and striving to find tiny goals that make a student feel he or she is constantly succeeding. My students find that their trajectory is continually upwards. You or your child would receive regular performance opportunities, regular specific feedback, consistent attention and high-quality musical training.

I am professional violist
, and a violin and viola instructor from the Philadelphia area. I graduated with my Master of Music in Performance with a Teaching Fellowship from the Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles, a selective school which accepts only 125 students total on full scholarship including room and board. I also spent one year in the San Diego Symphony. I have performed in eight states as well as in Canada and Austria. I now teach lessons at the Brooklyn Music School and for such agencies as Thumbtack, Musika, and Music To Your Home. Last year I taught music at the Brooklyn Heights Montessori School. My primary background is in the Suzuki Method; I have taken the official introductory course this past year, and plan to become officially certified this year. I have taught all levels, learning styles, and ages, I have background working with students who need special consideration, such as those on the autism spectrum or with attention disorders.
