Private Violin Teacher

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.

I am an adult student who has been taking violin lessons with Elana for about a year now. Elana is a highly skilled and talented instructor. Her unlimited patience and constant encouragement is what keeps me going. I always come out of the lessons feeling confident and excited to learn more. While Violin is known to be a difficult instrument to learn, Elana's way of teaching makes you feel like "you've got this!" I'm so happy I've found such an amazing teacher as Elana and I would highly recommend her to anyone who's interested in learning the Violin. With Elana, you can be confident you'll be playing beautifully in no time!

I hired Elana to give violin lessons to my daughter and help her prepare for audition.She already had private teacher but after two years I was not happy with the progress she made and decided to hire someone else.After first lesson with Elana I was sure I made the right decision.After second lesson my daughter told me she learned more with Elana in two lessons than with previous teacher in two years!Elana is very passionate when it comes to teaching violin,she is honest about her expectations and student's progress,yet very patient and mild in interaction.I could not recommend her more!

From the beginning I was astonished with Marta' s overall prior experienced, which in all encourage me to take classes with her. She is highly patient and explains all her lessons in a way that I can understand perfectly. Marta is highly dedicated and devoted to her students, overall I am more than satisfied with her lessons and effort.
Cassidy
Marta is a talented musician who translates her skills into a managable learning program. As an adult beginner, I appreciate her flexibility, patience, kindness, and easy-to-understand instruction. I have a great time in her lessons!
Laura L.
I've been taking lessons with Marta for a few months now, as an adult, and am really enjoying it. Marta is clearly an incredibly talented and engaging musician who is able to translate her experience for folks, like me, who might be new to an instrument or music in general. She is skilled in music theory and technique and really focuses on ensuring her students have the foundational skills necessary to build on as they progress. I'd highly recommend her - she makes the hard work of learning a new instrument (or expanding your existing practice) incredibly fun and rewarding.

Why It's Never Too Late For Violin Lessons

Think you're too old to learn how to play the violin? Nonsense! Take a look as Los Angeles teacher Travis H. dispels the myth and explains why taking music lessons as a later age can actually be beneficial... The age at which a violinist begins playing is an interesting thing. Most of my violinist friends started when they were in elementary school, and just about everyone says that starting at an early age is the right thing to do. The music bug didn’t bite me until I was 16, and …
