Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.
Geoff K.
I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

Private Violin Teacher

Violin was my first instrument, and it served as the foundation for everything else I did in music. Playing the violin teaches a high degree of musical sensitivity and I'm always excited to cultivate these qualities in any student that wants to learn. When I teach violin, I try to tailor to the needs of the student while teaching...

-Good intonation, which is one of the fundamental challenges of the instrument
-Playing by ear, an especially important skill for an instrument that can be used in almost every type of music on the planet
-Vocal phrasing, which is learning to use all the parts of the instrument to make it "sing."

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

Jonathan is a true pro— So knowledgeable, responsive, passionate about music and creativity. His approach is kind and patient while still holding high expectations and helping our daughter realize she can do more than she thought. He has introduced us to many simple but effective learning strategies that we hadn’t heard of before. I am so grateful we found him. Highly recommend!!!

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

Online Violin Teacher

Senior Music Education Major with 2+ years of teaching experience and a member of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra. A violinist and vocalist with 11+ years of experience, and 2+ years of viola and piano experience. I believe that music is an experience that is felt and understood differently among each person and because of this, all lessons are customized according to the interests, needs, and goals of each student. My students will develop a solid foundation of music theory, aural skills, and sight-reading that will prove to be extremely beneficial in their musical studies. My greatest desire is to help all of my students to achieve their greatest musical potential and to grow in their appreciation of the beauty of music.

About Rebeka

I am a Senior at Mount Saint Joseph University pursuing a degree in Music Education. My primary instruments are violin and voice, with my secondary instruments being viola and piano. I have been playing violin and singing for 11+ years and playing viola and piano for 2+ years. I am a classicall

"Susanna worked with me at Winstead Elem. School in Wilson, NC as an Ass. Principal. Susanna was a go getter, very professional and always trustworthy. She went beyond her duties as an AP and even played her instrument at a couple if events. This showed the students anothe side of her besides just being their AP. She had a wonderful repoire with all the students and they respected her kindness. Susanna would be an asset to any company or job she was asked to do."

"Lessons with Vlad were extremely helpful and I received a good insight on how to practice and what changes I need to make in my playing to succeed. He helped me to correct my technique and I was able to overcome specific technical challenges which affected my playing before. In a few words, I feel that my practice changed and became much more efficient than before, I very much appreciate his support."

"Mary is very knowledgeable and personable. She gives excellent instruction and gentle correction in a way that makes you want to do your best in every aspect of the learning process. Mary is also very attentive to your needs and your development as a student. She knows when to allow for the errors that a beginner like myself will make, and when to present challenges that will push you, and show you that your skill and talent are growing. She also gives homework assignments that will help you grow your talent when you're in between lessons, which I really appreciate. I absolutely recommend Mary to anyone wishing to take music lessons!"

What’s the Difference Between Professional and Student Violins?

Getting the right instrument is one of the most important decisions in a musician's life. The right violin will feel comfortable in your hands, respond accurately and consistently to your touch, and help you produce the best possible sound for your level of musical development. Students learning the violin can rent or purchase instruments from music instrument retailers, and they offer a variety of instruments that can seem daunting for the novice violin purchaser. When will you know that it' …
