Joshua G.
Joshua was very patient and nice. He worked at my son's pace and helped him feel more confident. We had a great experience!
Adam F.
Great as always!
AJ
Had to stop the class within 19 minutes because:
a) he showed a plain chess board with no numbers and letters and was forcing my kid to tell him coordinates/spaces as letters/numbers which my son has never learned before,
b) more importantly, he was extremely impatient with my son- when my son made a move but then immediately changed his mind (he's 6), Josh would be grunting in the background

Not the kind of impatience I would expect with a teacher that claims to be able to teach kids. When I jumped in and said I don't think this is working, he angrily said, "FINE!" NEVER AGAIN.

Dr. Chin Kim is an excellent teacher. He is kind, patient and detailed, and will work with you on a skill until you’ve mastered it. I’ve studied with him on-and-off since 2012 (I moved around a bit), and every time I go back to lessons, I improve exponentially. All levels of students, from beginner to professional, can learn a lot from him.
Jaime
Highly recommended! The most insightful and kind teacher. I had learned so much from him and dramatically improved every aspect of my violin playing. I was very fortunate to have learned from him.
Drew Y.
I was a student for over six years of Dr Chin Kim, from pre-college into my undergraduate studies. His encyclopedic knowledge of violin technique, repertoire, and history of the craft is unparalleled and still enamors me to this day. He is a masterful pedagogue who can offer students of the violin at all levels-even full professionals-access to unprecedented knowledge and understanding. I have since risen to be one of those professional products of Dr Kim’s teaching myself, with a graduate degree from the Shepherd School of Music followed by a tenure in the concertmaster pool at The Orchestra Now from 2016-2019-and I attribute much of this success to the knowledge and attention given by Dr Kim.

Private Violin Teacher

Twenty years teaching experience. I teach violin and viola students of all ages. I like to help students find strategies to improve their practice and their playing, create beautiful, interesting, and musical sound, and notice the nuances within a piece and what they are capable of as musicians at any stage. In private lessons I also like to balance solo work with some attention to skills through etudes or bow work, which helps develop character of sound and the range of choices we have as musicians. Online format adds some challenge for teaching beginners. If parents can tune instruments or have comfort level either from some music training or a hands on approach to supporting beginners, contact me if you are interested. My comfort level for online lessons is geared more towards advanced beginners, intermediate and advancing students. Please contact me with any questions, happy to answer. I'm willing to teach occasional pops tunes, though teach mostly classical, some folk and ...

Ms. Carlson taught my middle school orchestra and she was my private viola instructor for many years. She is extremely skilled at playing a variety of instruments, and she is detail orientated as well as encouraging to all students. Her practice techniques are superb and I always enjoyed our lessons together. I would highly recommend her to anyone, regardless of skill level.

Shannon has worked with me for years, as my nutrition/fitness/strength trainer and my private music instructor! I love her! She is so patient, kind and knowledgeable. She cares and only wants to help me be better at everything I do! And she is always there to help even between sessions. She's all in!

Sharon takes time to listen to you and cares about you as a person as much as a student.
She has been knowledgeable on any instrument I have done lessons on (flute, clarinet, alto sax, cello, and violin).
Sandra
Shannon has been my triathlon coach and conditioning trainer for 3 years and I couldn't be more pleased. My racing times continue to improve, as I continue to aim for longer races. I just completed my first Half Ironman (70.3 miles)! I have never been injured in her care. She really knows what she's doing.

Philip is an excellent teacher and gave me very heloful pointers on my technique. I am an advanced player and have performed semi-professionally several times but hadn't learned proper technique in the past.

I plan to continue with him regularly to improve my technique and skill level.
Kennadi S.
Philip was so friendly and patient, and made my 7 year old very comfortable with her first lesson. He really knew how to speak on her level and his instruction was very positive and motivating. My daughter left the lesson very excited to start practicing what he showed her, and we can't wait till the next lesson!

Very helpful person to work with, understanding of my student's transportation difficulties and great about rescheduling. The girl likes him and is learning.

"Thanks to Jacqueline, I have been able to pick up the violin again (after not playing for many years) and build back my technique reasonably quickly. She has an expansive library of musical exercises and songs that are perfect for making your practicing more efficient and your playing sound better. Over the last two years I’ve started to see her as less of a violin teacher and more of a violin guru. I high recommend her to any new/old violin student."

"My 17-year-old son looks forward to his lessons with Mel. My goal was to restore my son's love of the violin that he started to play many years ago. Lessons with Mel did just that. My son says that Mel's delightful and personable style makes it safe for kids to be kids who are learning and growing. I hear Mel play things during my son's lessons and as a musician, I can tell he is a violinist and a musician of the highest order. I was so impressed. He keeps the lessons focused but fun. My son is already improving and more importantly, he is in love with the violin again. My son and I highly recommend him. He's a gem."

"Kelvin is an awesome teacher. I wanted to learn to play by ear, because that's the way I learned to play the guitar. I had been looking for a teacher for several weeks, and after contacting several teachers, most of them didn't respond. The one who did respond refused to teach me without sheet music. I was about to give up the whole idea of playing, but Kelvin took me on and has developed a method of teaching me without the burden of having to learn to read sheet music. My playing has improved with only four lessons! I highly recommend him as a teacher!"

10 Wacky Ways to Improve Your Posture for Better Violin Playing

Proper posture is essential for good violin playing. Standing or sitting up straight not only improves tone production and control, but it also prevents injury and discomfort. Many violin players, however, struggle with their posture, which can lead to poor technique and cause both short and long term injuries. Not to mention you'll end up looking like Quasimodo. Poor posture can be a result of many things, such as sitting or standing without interruption for long periods of time, lack …
