Private Violin Teacher

My teaching style is very friendly and I have a great passion for teaching! I also like to guide my students on how to refine their playings by themselves and encourage them to form their own thoughts on the music, and I believe the ability to resolve problems without outside help is crucial not only in the music realm but also in real life, so it is a good place to train that skill too! Furthermore, I don’t limit my students and put them into a mold- I encourage them to embrace their unique ideas and embrace their individuality as part of their identity. I am confident that with my help, my students will not only fall more deeply in love with violin playing but also become more confident in performing. I have worked with students of all levels, so whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced player, I can promise you will get the most out of me.

About Chieh-An

Seeing the amazing progress of my students is always so encouraging to me. I always tailor my pedagogy approach to each student's needs. I aspire to inspire my students to love music as well as everything they do in life as I guide them on their musical journey.

Private Violin Teacher

Having just recently graduated college with a BA in Music and Mathematics, I have first hand experience with the transition from in-person to online violin lessons and Orchestra rehearsals (as well as other classes). I know the stress it can bring with so much being unknown, and I can provide ways to cope with that stress. I have been playing my violin privately and in orchestras for the past 12 years, watching over my instructors and learning how to teach students of my own. I strive to be a teacher that my students feel they can approach with any problems or worries they have about playing their violin at home or in school. If you think I am a good fit, I look forward to chatting with you!

Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Vanessa D.
Cedrick is absolutely amazing! I am beyond grateful that we found him. My son wanted to play the violin, but had never played any instruments before in his life. In just a few lessons, he was playing songs by heart! Cedrick is very patient and knows how to really reach the students and how to encourage the students to problem solve. This inspires confidence. I HIGHLY recommend him.
Gerda
Our 10 year old expressed his interest to try the violin. We are so grateful that despite of all the challenges technology brings, Cedrick is willing to give it a try to teach him online. Our son looks forward to each lesson as he really enjoys Cedrick's energy and how intentional he is with his instructions. Thank you so much! The Steiner Family
Kim W.
Cedric is extremely patient and very professional, but friendly as well. He is willing to go the extra mile for someone who has no musical experience at all. He is very knowledgeable and willing to do whatever is necessary so you can be comfortable while trying to learn how to play the violin. I've appreciated all of his efforts to date.

She was very supportive, giving my son new-found enthusiasm for learning violin. She teaches using the same beginner book we already had, which was a big plus. She also sent some extra music that would be fun for him to play. He looks forward to practicing once again!"
