Private Violin Teacher

I am a full-time, classically trained ethnofolk musician from Santa Fe, NM. My area of expertise is primarily in Klezmer and Eastern European music. I have been teaching both private lessons and youth ensembles for over a decade. I use time-tested methodology from classical technique books with all of my students from beginner through advanced. I also take individualized approaches to more advanced students whose interest may expand further than the classical world. In particular, I am well-versed in teaching world folk styles and jazz.

Private Violin Teacher

I am an experienced violinist of 24 years, and have performed nationally and internationally in locations such as Carnegie Hall, Europe, and Asia. I am a passionate and experienced teacher, and have worked with students of all ages and levels. I can't wait to help you on your musical journey!

For all my students, I strive to cultivate independence of thought and creativity so that they can communicate their ideas to the highest musical and technical degree. My pedagogy promotes proper and relaxed positioning of the violin, strong rhythmic integrity, and active listening. My goal is for all students to develop their own musical voices, which in turn makes learning music and the violin fun and engaging!

All lessons will incorporate theory, technique and repertoire. Practice recordings specifically tailored to you will also be available to help practice be fun and engaging!

Ingrid Anderson
I was lucky to take lessons with Marisa for two years during my undergraduate music degree at CU Boulder. Not only is Marisa a wonderful and knowledgeable violinist, she is a intuitive and warm teacher. Marisa took my musicality to the next level and helped me develop proper, tension-free technique. Marisa's advice helped me to practice more effectively on my own, and I always felt inspired after our lessons. I would highly recommend Marisa as a teacher for violinists of any level!
Kylie
Dr Marisa has been teaching me for three years now. She is very good at explaining the pieces, and giving a short history lesson about how it was developed. This helps me learn and memorize the piece faster for recitals and performances. Despite the setbacks of COVID-19, she has still continued being an excellent teacher for me.
Kendalia
Throughout my entire music experience, Marisa is one of the best violin teachers I've ever had. She taught me how to listen and improve the sound I was producing, correct my bow hold, overcome my performance anxiety, and much more. I would highly recommend Marisa, no matter what your experience is with the violin.

Online Violin Teacher

Learning an instrument is no easy feat, but having the right plan, structure, and support makes all the difference. My teaching philosophy is designed to meet each student where they are, with a custom approach tailored to their individual needs.

I take time to get to know my students - how they practice, why they pursue their instrument, what their goals are, and who they really are as people. What is it that they truly need right now? Is it a practice schedule, or just some gentle encouragement? A new song to freshen things up, or a tough lesson about persistence? A conversation about homework, or a story to lighten the mood and bring some laughter into the music? As an experienced teacher, I know how big of a difference it makes to really understand the needs of a student.

I work with beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of all ages. I have experience with all major string curricula, as well as my own conservatory-trained approach. I have taught over 100 students in ...

The Best Violin Exercises for Rhythm, Tone, and More

Learning to play a musical instrument - and finally being able to play all of your favorite songs for violin - is an amazing feeling! However, it can be easy to get caught up in the enthusiasm of learning to play violin songs quickly, and to overlook the important basic step of developing your sound from the very beginning.  Nothing will help build these skills more quickly than concentrated exercises; just a few short bursts each day to concentrate on each area will hone the skills you need to …
