Having taught and performed for over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all levels and ages. For beginning students, you can expect to be playing and learning to read music within your first month of taking lessons. I am happy to say that my intermediate and advanced students have met goals of preparing for auditions with success, performance events, and simply studying new technique and repertoire for their own pleasure. I look forward to meeting and sharing your musical endeavors!

Kendra was so helpful and encouraging to our son during his first lesson, while also remaining firm in the techniques she was asking him to practice! She asked throughout the lesson if he had questions or if she needed to clarify anything, which we appreciate because he doesn't always admit if he doesn't understand.

I wrote a review when my daughter was a beginner, as she started to learn viola at her middle school. 4 years later, after 1 all-state, 2 district honors, and 1 London performances - all thanks to Kendra - my daughter continues to learn under Kendra's encouraging, precise instructions. Thank you Kendra!!!!
Angelique M.
I studied viola from 4th grade through college and have had many different teachers. I took a very long break from studying because it was getting to be too much like work and no fun.
Returning as an adult student was a tough decision for me, but Kendra has made it fun again! We've worked through some of my old bad habits that none of my previous teachers addressed and I can play without left hand pain for the first time in my life. It's amazing!

Kendra is patient and encouraging and has really helped me rediscover my joy and love of playing the viola. I can't recommend her enough!

I got to take lessons with Tammy in my freshman year of college and it was a great experience! She was so nice and patient with me when I couldn't get things right and would really look at things that weren't working and try to figure out exactly what wasn't working so that we can fix it.
Tiffany
I had the pleasure of taking lessons from Tammy during my sophomore year of college when I studied violin performance at the University of Michigan. She is an *incredible* musician and I was always blown away when I heard her play. Whenever I brought challenging music to her, she simplified them for me and showed me how to best practice them. She brought me to a new level of technique and understanding of music.

I highly recommend Tammy as a teacher. She is so patient, fun, and down to earth.

Beginners typically take 60 minute classes once per week at a recurring time. Young children typically take half hour classes and older children, adult musicians and those on a budget typically take 45 minute classes. The most common lesson length to start with is 60 minutes, as the teacher will need to tune your instrument and help you get set up. Some students choose to take lessons twice per week when a concert is coming up, to catch up from a vacation or if they just want to make faster progress.

In class, you will learn new techniques, receive guidance on how to achieve the best sound possible and learn songs that you like and that interest you. You are expected to take this guidance and practice it thoroughly at home until you feel comfortable with it, so that when you are in class next, the teacher can move on to a new concept or skill which builds upon the skill practiced at home. They will only move you forward once you can do the more basic technique.

Antoinette is, by far, the best music instructor that I have ever hired. Music has always been a part of my life. As a child, I took piano lessons for years and continued on and off through college. As a complete novice to the violin, I was nervous to begin such a challenging instrument as an adult hobby. Antoinette is encouraging, intelligent and incredibly skilled. Her calm demeanor and patience is vital to one's success. She focuses on the building blocks to a successful technique with ease. I am incredibly grateful to Antoinette for reminding me of how enjoyable music can be. I look forward to our weekly sessions around my busy work schedule. Her location is conveniently located within walking distance from the subway in NYC.
Tonia
I took violin lessons for a year with an instructor I found through a different organization (not TakeLessons)--and I learned more in one hour with Antoinette than I learned in 30 lessons with that other teacher. In just one lesson, I can see that Antoinette is friendly, smart, encouraging, knows her stuff--and knows how to teach (which not every good player can do). I'm an adult, but I bet she'd be just as great with a student of any age.

I've been teaching violin and viola for almost 20 years and many of my students have won prestigious placements in the local orchestras. If you are a dedicated and curious student, you'll be able to improve your understanding of our craft and as time goes on you'll be able to take some interesting steps on this path. Since my background training happens to be in the best traditions of Russian violin school, my big emphasis is on the techniques and musicality. I use all kinds of books and methods, from Suzuki to Schradieck. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Wonderful exciting teacher

I have had several lessons now and have not only learned a lot, but enjoyed my lesson time. Mariam is very fun and pushes me to try new things while keeping me reviewing the old.
I get a high quality teacher in my home every week that wants me to improve as much as I want to improve my violin skills. After just two lessons people I have played for have commented on just how much I have improved lately.

Profile_153780_382699_38328
"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."

"Nick is a great instructor. He is knowledgeable on tradition violin skills and practice methods which is good. But what makes him great is when I asked about contemporary music or Disney/Star Wars, he picks up his violin and starts playing them. And is more than willing to break from tradition to teach more pop-orchestra music.

He understands what makes music music....upbeat or reflective, happy or sad, and helps his student (Me) understand the why....then he gives homework :P

I would recommend Nick as a teacher to any violin student looking to begin or improve current skill, just don't ask about Paganini that is a scary road which he is teaching me to navigate one etude at a time!"
