I have been teaching violin for 3 years. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons this year, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever.

I teach using the Suzuki Method and See Saw exercise books. I love to teach students of any age - adults and kids. For younger students, I recommend a parent be present to help with lesson setup and note-taking. You're welcome to sit in on the whole lesson or just the first and last 5 minutes or so.

Also, I love introducing students to alternative styles of violin. Want to learn how to play in a rock band? I can help! Want to play by ear and jam? We can do that too!

No matter your end goal, we'll work on posture and playing technique to help you achieve a beautiful sound and comfortable playing. We'll also work on basic music theory and note-reading.

I look forward to meeting you!

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, th

Whether you are a complete beginner or a more advanced student looking to improve your skills and musicality, I can help you wherever you're at! I have been teaching violin since 2008 and have both my bachelor's and master's degrees in violin performance. I stress a strong technical foundation in all my students through correct posture and relaxation while playing. I grew up in the Suzuki method and have been trained to use it for my beginning and intermediate students. I am a classically trained violinist and teacher, but can teach other genres as well!

About DaNece

I started the violin when I was eight years old and taught my first student when I was 17. As a musician, I love the experience of making music in professional orchestras, chamber groups, and solo playing as much as I love teaching it to students of every age and level. I am an approachable, nurturi

So nice, and made me feel comfortable working at my knowledge level 😌
Ingrid Anderson
I was lucky to take lessons with Marisa for two years during my undergraduate music degree at CU Boulder. Not only is Marisa a wonderful and knowledgeable violinist, she is a intuitive and warm teacher. Marisa took my musicality to the next level and helped me develop proper, tension-free technique. Marisa's advice helped me to practice more effectively on my own, and I always felt inspired after our lessons. I would highly recommend Marisa as a teacher for violinists of any level!
Kylie
Dr Marisa has been teaching me for three years now. She is very good at explaining the pieces, and giving a short history lesson about how it was developed. This helps me learn and memorize the piece faster for recitals and performances. Despite the setbacks of COVID-19, she has still continued being an excellent teacher for me.

My belief is that teacher's goal is to help a student to reveal and develop his/her personality through the music, so the lessons are adjusted for each student's needs individually. At the same time, the basis is a professional approach with detailed instructions, from posture, technique skills, and proper practicing strategies to phrasing and music stylistic features.
I teach classical violin and work with students of all ages/ levels.

About Tatiana

I am a professional violinist and member of several orchestras in Michigan. I studied at St. Petersburg Conservatory and also have a Doctorate degree in violin performance from Michigan State University. My diverse background allows me to combine best features of Russian and American string schools.

We have been with Tatiana for past 3 years and she teaches my both kids. She is very knowledgeable , flexible and very interested to teach kids. I would recommend her highly to any one interested in learning violin.
Tommy
Tatiana is an excellent instructor and I am a 68 yr old violin hobbyist who is trying to learn classical music and folk music to eventually become a part time teacher myself. She is very patient and pleasant and I am a former teacher myself in grades 5 - 9. I believe she would be good for any age(s) ! She is great with technique and knowing what the student wants to accomplish and is interested in with their musical interests She is just a very pleasant person to know and get guidance musically from! I recommend her highly!
