Private Violin Teacher

Hi! I am a Juilliard-Columbia Dual Degree student offering both online and in person lessons to violinists of all skill levels! Whether you are practicing for school orchestra, just a casual violinist looking to get better, or auditioning for elite music schools, I will accommodate the intensity and difficulty my teaching to your needs. Furthermore, with over five years of teaching experience and fourteen years as a soloist/orchestral musician, I offer a vast understanding of all the musical and technical intricacies of the instrument.
My teaching style revolves on sound itself. Of course, technique and musicality are all important, but when it comes down to it, music is just the production of sound. With all my students, I always start by teaching them to interpret, analyze, and produce a beautiful sound. My job is help my students develop their own sophisticated ideas of sound and lay the fundamentals of being a violinist so that they can become beautiful and unique musicians ...

I’ve been taking online lessons from Connie for 6 months now and couldn’t be happier. She helped me develop a good foundation and has been so encouraging along the way! I love that she pays attention to detail and goes out of her way to write weekly lesson notes, make recordings for me, adds in music theory and is helping me towards my first exam. Connie’s passion for music and teaching is evident and I’m thankful I found her online!

"Zhana is such a kind, thoughtful, and patient instructor! Our lessons give me the perfect balance of structure and fundamentals, along with playfulness and exploration. She is able to make the connection between the technical aspects of the basics and the musicality of a piece. Zhana regularly plays with me during our lessons, which has really helped me hear my intonation and what correction is needed. She is very understanding of the fact that I am an adult learner and do not always have the opportunity to practice as much as I like, but at the same time she is constantly encouraging me to learn more and improve my technical abilities. I would highly, highly recommend Zhana as a teacher for anyone looking for a new teacher!"

Everything is getting more high tech these days, even the centuries-old violin!

When someone decides to learn to play an instrument, one of the first things to do is to look into buying the instrument. This process varies depending on the instrument, and is especially unique when it comes to buying violins, or fiddles. Many instruments are mass produced in factories, producing batches that all sound the same. On the contrary, fiddles are not usually built this way.  The best sounding ones are handmade, and therefore, all unique.  When musicians are looking to buy a …
