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 ...

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 ...

Congratulations! I mean it! Looking for violin lessons is a big step, and the first to achieving your goals as a budding musician.

In your lessons with me, you will first learn proper set-up and technique, and we will mainly work from the Suzuki method books. Additionally, I will provide you with various scales, exercises, and "fun pieces" as you progress. I wholeheartedly believe that learning the violin should be enjoyable, and not a chore. So, wherever you are at with current skill level, and whatever your motives are for taking lessons, you can rest assured that we will have a great time together!

Lauren is a great teacher. Very patient, encouraging, stressing the basics while keeping you interested by teaching you new, interesting pieces.
Daniel
I have worked with Lauren for over a year now. I have found that Lauren is very patient and is willing to work with you to reach your goals and not just the goals of a book. Lauren works with you on a one on one basis to help you get where you want to go. Lauren is extremely knowledgable and always ready with a challenge to help you progress.
Catherine P.
I just completed my first lesson with Lauren. I was hesitant as to how it would go because I know nothing about the violin or how to hold the bow. With that said, even though it has only been one lesson, I have complete confidence that Lauren will help me reach the goals I am looking to achieve. She has a wonderful calmness that makes you feel relaxed and competent.

"I'm a former music major and I have performed with several bands throughout my life on guitar, harmonica, and vocals. I recently decided to take up an instrument that I studied for a very short time as a child - violin. I've had lessons for about six months now with Arielle, and will continue to study with her for some time. She is an excellent teacher, and at a very reasonable cost, especially compared to others.
She teaches every single detail of what I should know about playing violin, supplied a really helpful textbook to me, and each lesson is great fun, not dull work for a beginner. I really appreciate that.
If someone is expecting to have an effective and pleasing learning experience, just go ahead and work with Arielle. It is absolutely worth the time and effort."
