Private Violin Teacher

I am very passionate about Violin and creating beautiful music. I always try my best to have my students become as motivated as me so they have the best experience playing outside the lesson. I want them to pursue playing in Youth groups, solo at their schools and audition for other orchestras and colleges.
I enjoy working with highly motivated players who want to reach the best they can.
I have training at Julliard school and my NJ Music teaching Certification.I've been a public school music teacher and orchestra conductor for 20 years and I have a lot of experience to offer.

Hire Concetta, especially to support a beginning violin player! She is warm, professional and very adept at finding your child's musical strengths and then identifying material to help them access and enjoy the music and instrument.

Private Violin Teacher

Hello! I've been playing both piano and violin for 19 years, and teaching for 13. I really enjoy cultivating a deep love for music in my students, and working with their specific strengths and weaknesses to find musical strategies that will work best for rapid, solid advancement in their musical journeys. I integrate music theory, technical exercises, ear training, and music history into lessons in order to build a strong, balanced musical foundation. Lessons are built around your personal interests--I'll listen to you, and take all your needs into consideration.

I highly recommend Adrianna Svitak as a piano teacher. When I met her, I had already been playing music professionally for about 30 years. I was mainly a jazz player, but I’d had some classical training. I told Adrianna some of the things that were challenging me technically and she picked a piece for me to work on that not only helped me in the areas I was struggling with, but one that was inspiring musically as well. She took the time to assess my abilities and then pointed things out that enhanced what I already knew in addition to immediately correcting bad habits I wasn’t aware of. I felt my playing improve very quickly after the first couple of lessons. She is a great and thoughtful musician who is generous with her knowledge.
Rui
Adrianna is very patient and knowledgable. She asked me about my needs and prepared the lesson material that best suit me before hand and ensured not a minute of our lesson was waisted!
Joyce
Adrianna teaches her students with enthusiasm and pays great attention to their needs and interest. She customizes her teaching to encourage her students to develop their musicality.

My teaching is a combination of Suzuki Method, ABRSM pieces, and Traditional Method. I used fingering, bowing exercises or etudes for the pieces to make it easier to play.

I am very sincere and sensitive to my students because every student is unique and it is very important that you have to connect with them. I teach by heart and provide what they wanted to achieve in violin playing and so its worth and satisfying.

All of my students will learn how to play well with good intonation and proper posture. Students can choose to play their favorite pieces for fun, either Classical or Pop music . We can also enjoy some duet pieces.

Violin playing is fun but it involves patience, discipline, PRACTICE and determination. Lesson can be held in West Valley Music depending on the studio's room availability. Give me your availability and i will try to fit you in.

From Practicing to Performance: Taking Violin Lessons in Brooklyn, NY

By Concetta A. - Brooklyn Violin Teacher

The best thing about taking violin lessons in Brooklyn is that you can find violinists of all shapes and sizes throughout NYC. I grew up playing classical music since age 4, but I later became interested in genres such as folk music, jazz violin, hip hop violin and country fiddle music. I can’t think of another place in the world that has a thriving scene for violinists interested in all of those things!

Through TakeLessons, I teach many adult students who are coming back to music after many years or who are starting out for the very first time. Reclaiming one’s identity as a musician can change your life. At first, you may find yourself confronting a lot of challenges and fears, but in the end, learning music as an adult helps you to stretch the limits of your potential and make a fresh connection with the world. I encourage my students to get out into the city and start playing and listening as soon as they can. I believe that music is a social activity, and the sooner you can start sharing with other people the better!

So, if you're interested in taking violin lessons in Brooklyn, here are six tips on places to visit in NYC that will inspire you in your musical journey:

  1. For a jazz jam session, check out Smalls in Greenwich Village: 
http://www.smallsjazzclub.com/

  2. Travel up to Harlem, and discover historic places like American Legion Post.

  3. To hear some classical music, there is the Amateur Classical Musicians Association, which I have found to be a very welcoming and supportive community for chamber music: http://nycclassical.com/

  4. Or, check out bigger community orchestras like the New York Late Starters String Orchestra:
 http://www.nylso.org/

  5. If you're into fiddling, then you shouldn’t miss Mona’s Monday Night Bluegrass Session: https://www.facebook.com/MonasMondayNightBluegrassSession

  6. And, finally, if you’re into world and folk music, there is always a big jam session or “Fandango” on Friday nights after the band plays at Terrazza 7 in Queens.

There are so many more spots to check out, but once you attend just one of these, you will immediately meet lots of music lovers just like you who are scoping out the scene. Even if you don’t feel comfortable playing or performing what you've just started to learn in your violin lessons, you will observe, listen and make connections in the city’s musical community. You will discover lots of new places and opportunities. It can seem daunting to make that leap from practicing to playing, but there are lots of welcoming music communities in New York ready to show you where to start.

One of the most inspiring things I’ve seen from sending my students out onto the New York music scene is when they form musical groups and start making friends and playing in ensembles at the park or in a friends home. The important thing is that we own our musicianship, wherever we are at and embrace it as a jumping point into the world.
