Private Violin Teacher

For my beginning violin students, I have found the Essential Elements Series to be highly effective, as well as the Suzuki methodology. All lessons will typically start with scales/arpeggios and be followed with the selected piece(s) we have chosen together. All of my students will attest that I set clear and high expectations for every lesson, yet am very understanding, friendly and approachable right from the start. My goal is to provide every individual with the tools necessary for becoming a well-rounded musician, so that they too can share their love for music with others.

Great lesson. Received good feedback on technique.
Ke C.
I had a great class with Michael. He is extremely experienced in teaching and he has a very focused teaching strategy. Definitely take his class if you are interested in cello.
Yemi A.
I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now. I've taken lessons before with other instructors (though not in cello). Michael is one of the best instructors that I have ever had. He instructs and challenges you to get better, while at the same time being patient with your development. It has been a pleasure being a student of Michael.

This was my first lesson with Zeynep. I have had several Tutors over the past 4 years. Zeynep was ready for my arrival. She was friendly, yet very professional. She watched me play a short piece and was able to discern from that where I needed help. Zeynep was able to give me new tips on bowing and finger placement. I am certainly looking forward to my next a Lesson with Zeynep.
Addison/Lauren
My daughter had the pleasure of taking lessons with Zeynep this past summer in the PALS program in Aspen. She loved each week when it was lesson time. This is what Addison had to say, "She always would say the area I needed to work on nicely. I loved that she gave me knew things to learn at each lesson. If I didn't understand, she would keep encouraging me until I did." This was an excellent experience!
Bethany
A unique and special experience! My daughter always looked forward to her sessions with Zeynep. She has been her mentor for the past two summers at the PALS program. Once after a lesson my daughter told me that she was surprised how much better she played the song after her session with Zeynep. I love the way Zeynep engages with my daughter and brings out the best in her.

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 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!

My 11 year old daughter has studied with Jacqueline for 1.5 years and is really enjoying the process. Jacqueline is a kind and warm teacher which is very encouraging. My daughter wants to practice and improve in order to impress her sweet teacher. We are very happy with lessons with Jacqueline. She even teaches Disney music... not just the classics. She will look for whatever my daughter is interested in playing and then plays with her. I highly recommend her.

Me and J worked together for three years before I went to college and I’m glad she asked me for this review. J is really patient and fun to work with. I mostly wanted to learn movie music and she was cool with that. Good lessons, chill teacher.

First and foremost, it is so important for me to get to know you and your musical interests (favorite songs, artists or bands). Once I know a little bit more about you and where your musical interests are, I help you build goals based on what you’d like to accomplish...that could be anything from “just wanting to learn something new and to have fun” to “playing my sister’s favorite song at her wedding in 3 months” or “to join an orchestra and make it my professional goal”. My style of teaching over the last 25 years incorporates technique, reading music, ear training, and improvisation. In addition to the violin, I teach viola, cello and piano/keyboard. The genres I love to teach are classical, rock, pop, jazz, film/tv music, and fiddle!

"I'm a beginner student with no music experience. She is very patient and enthusiastic. I was able to understand some of the basics of music beats and notes on the first lesson thanks to Cathy. She also thought me the proper position to hold the violin. I'm very excited to continue my four lessons with her and I couldn't choose a better instructor than her. You can see her passion for teaching violin. I highly recommend her, especially for beginner students."

"Cara is one of the most talented and incredible music teachers that I have ever known. She taught two of my children for the past several years - my son studied violin and my daughter studied piano. Cara has an incredible gift to understand how children learn and to encourage their confidence. She personally helped my son to not only do well, but to excel by becoming concert-master, winning a concerto competition and to gain entrance into a very acclaimed string music program.

It is one thing to simply teach and quite another to develop children into talented musicians. Cara understands children, she is extremely knowledgeable about music and incredibly talented at being more than just a teacher, She provides not only a lesson but helps children to see the possibilities of music and was a tremendous help to me to better understand how to guide my children's musical aspirations. I consider her one of the most talented individuals that I have ever known and would not hesitate to have my children enrolled as one of her students."
