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 ...

About Lauren

In addition to my teaching, I maintain an international career as a performer. I've performed at festivals such as Venice Biennale, Acht Brücken, Newport Jazz, Beijing Modern Music Festival, and Lincoln Center. I've worked with artists and composers such as Ambrose Akinmusire, Richard Carrick, C

Highly recommended! The most insightful and kind teacher. I had learned so much from him and dramatically improved every aspect of my violin playing. I was very fortunate to have learned from him.
Drew Y.
I was a student for over six years of Dr Chin Kim, from pre-college into my undergraduate studies. His encyclopedic knowledge of violin technique, repertoire, and history of the craft is unparalleled and still enamors me to this day. He is a masterful pedagogue who can offer students of the violin at all levels-even full professionals-access to unprecedented knowledge and understanding. I have since risen to be one of those professional products of Dr Kim’s teaching myself, with a graduate degree from the Shepherd School of Music followed by a tenure in the concertmaster pool at The Orchestra Now from 2016-2019-and I attribute much of this success to the knowledge and attention given by Dr Kim.
Corinne
Dr. Kim helped me build the foundation to my violin playing. As a young learner at 8 years old, he shaped my technique and provided me with the guidance that helped me become the violinist I am today. I studied with Dr. Kim for 10 years up until I went to college, where I am earning a degree in music. I can attribute this privilege to Dr. Kim for pushing me to grow and for teaching me so much during my early years.

"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."

I was hesitant at taking violin lessons virtually at first as I thought it was going to be impossible for me to learn without someone next to me in person, but Will has a great method of teaching and I was actually able to pick up basic technique's early on.

Will comes with a ton of knowledge of music and musical techniques in general which definitely shows.
