Private Violin Teacher

For my beginning violin students, I have found the Essential Elements Series to be highly effective, as well as the Suzuki methodology. All lessons will typically start with scales/arpeggios and be followed with the selected piece(s) we have chosen together. All of my students will attest that I set clear and high expectations for every lesson, yet am very understanding, friendly and approachable right from the start. My goal is to provide every individual with the tools necessary for becoming a well-rounded musician, so that they too can share their love for music with others.

Great lesson. Received good feedback on technique.
Ke C.
I had a great class with Michael. He is extremely experienced in teaching and he has a very focused teaching strategy. Definitely take his class if you are interested in cello.
Yemi A.
I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now. I've taken lessons before with other instructors (though not in cello). Michael is one of the best instructors that I have ever had. He instructs and challenges you to get better, while at the same time being patient with your development. It has been a pleasure being a student of Michael.

Private Violin Teacher

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I'm an NYC-based violinist with over 15 years of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I 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, students are empowered and 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.

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 ...

Lauren has been an amazing teacher and mentor. Her teaching technique and talent has made a huge difference in my teenage daughter's musical journey.
Sonia D.
Lauren is a cheerful and patient instructor. She has helped our daughter elevate her skill and proficiency with the violin, and encouraged her to expand her style and technique. Lauren is always punctual, and she seems willing to spend a few extra minutes if necessary at the end of each lesson. She's also flexible with her scheduling. If we have a conflict, she does her best to work around it. Highly recommended.

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.
Patricia T.
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!!!
Pauline
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!

M.W. is wonderful as an instructor because she challenges you to learn and provides great feedback. Also, I've wanted to learn how to read music and she's teaching me music Theory as well.

Online Violin Teacher

Since 2011, I've had the joy of teaching students how to play the violin to the best of their ability. From six year olds just starting out to adults in their 80s who want to learn just for fun, I've successfully taught the skills and techniques to make music on this beautiful instrument.

With a gentle, patient approach, I custom-tailor each lesson to the student's goals, interests, and abilities. Within that framework, I place an emphasis on proper position, technique and intonation. To provide a thorough and well-rounded music education, I also teach note reading, music theory, and ear-training. I do everything I can to make learning fun and engaging -- often using games, flashcards, and interactive exercises to teach certain concepts, especially for younger players. Complex skills are broken down into "bite-sized" pieces that are easy to understand. They are then layered on top of one another sequentially. Through it all, I provide students with steady encouragement and just the ...

Sarah hernandez
Miss. Vicky, is a very passionate and kind teacher. She has been able to pull my shy daughter out of her shell and become a more confident musican. I highly recommend her. She knows that she has to adapt to different students based on ability and personality. We continue to take lessons and will throughout karinas years.
Karla
Ms. Vicky is an effective instructor because she meets the student where they are. Adult learners require a connection between prior knowledge and new information. Ms. Vicky successfully creates the connections I need to understand new concepts. Ms. Vicky is very patient. She provides the right amount of positive feedback and gently corrects incorrect form when needed.

"I had the opportunity to take violin lessons from Dr. Geronimo Oyenard for about three years. Dr. Oyenard is an amazing teacher with advanced knowledge of music, particularly violin. He is a patient, kind, knowledgeable, and punctual teacher who is always available and patiently improves his students' learning objectives.

In my case, I wanted to learn classical Persian music. Dr. Oyenard was skilled and patient enough to help me do so. During the years that I was Dr. Oyenard's student, I learned more about violin and performance than ever before.

Dr. Oyenard is an outstanding virtuoso and a thorough resource for any scholar of music and violin."

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.

How to Find the "Sweet Spot" On Your Violin

The violin can be a difficult instrument to master. Intonation is often challenging; unlike the guitar, there are no frets to guide the fingers, and even if all the notes are correct and in tune you're still left with the issue of tone. The purest and perfectly in-tune notes can still sound bad if they're played with poor tone. However, there are many methods and tricks to help your violin bowing, which can instantly improve your tone. 5 Points to Consider for Violin Bowing 1. Pre …
