I have a lot of experience with the Suzuki method as a teacher and also a player having started with that myself. However unless the player or parent specifies that they want strict Suzuki, I go with my method which involves Suzuki but also other methods. I was not strict Suzuki and it definitely worked for me as well as students of mine!

Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for 17 years! One of my favorite parts of teaching is being able to customize the lessons to meet the needs/goals of each student. All ages are welcome! I believe that music should be an expression of you! I will provide you with a strong foundation that will allow you to continue your musical expression long after your lessons end. Because I teach all ages, I keep my clearances current.

About Angel

As a professional musician, my greatest desire is and always has been to teach others to love music. Music has always been an important part of my life. I have been playing violin since I was 6 years old and singing for as long as I can remember. I knew in elementary school that I wanted to “g

Our daughter started taking violin lessons in first grade and vocal lessons in third grade with Angel and we are amazed at her musical growth and development! Angel is patient and encouraging which brings out the best in our child. She has learned the technical aspects of violin and voice and has developed her ability to perform her talent in front of others. Angel's love and appreciation of music is contagious! Mifflinburg is very fortunate to have a musician with her talent teach the children and adults in our area!

At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

She taught lessons with a high degree of professionalism and care. As a novice, I was able to learn a lot because Catherine was patient and attentive to my learning style.

My two oldest children (one more advanced in piano than the other) began taking lessons with Catherine just this year. They have both shown significant improvement and love her as an instructor. They also look forward to practicing in between lessons. We could not be happier.

Mark is a wonderful violin instructor. It has been a joy to watch him teach my daughter. Mark has so many great qualities in his teaching skills in bringing out the best in a student. My daughter has learned to have confidence and a passion for playing the violin and I feel that he is the reason behind it. I highly recommend Mark as an instructor. He is patient and kind and knows how to approach each student to fit their learning needs."

"I have to admit, starting violin lessons as an adult is really weird, but it's something I've always wanted to try. I tried another teacher on here and she was a bit impatient and short with me (how does she teach children??!), so I tried Nick due to his location from my home. He's been fantastic! He's a great combo of being patient, caring, and encouraging, but also stern enough to get me to do what I need to get better. I'm sure it's not easy working with an adult that can "talk back" haha. He clearly knows what he's doing and he helps motivate me to keep learning. And he's very understanding when I run a tad late sometimes. I imagine he'd be great with kids too if he's great with a difficult adult like me."

"Wow! What a great experience it has been with Humberto. I wanted a teacher that was passionate about the violin and I had a feeling that that was Humberto when I was selecting an instructor. I was right!!! His methodology and teaching style has me excited to practice, excited to learn and excited to see him every week. He is all about my progress and understanding and encouraging my own passion to play. As an adult, you always hear that, oh, you know, you'd be better off as an eight year old learning a new instrument than as a mature adult. Let me say that you can do anything you want to do at any age as long as you have the desire. Humberto has made my desire a reality and has put me on a path of what I think will be a long relationship with the violin and with -- happily, if I may say -- Humberto! To anyone out there looking for a good instructor, I highly, highly recommend Humberto."

How to Find the "Sweet Spot" On Your Violin

The violin can be a difficult instrument to master. Intonation is often challenging; unlike the guitar, there are no frets to guide the fingers, and even if all the notes are correct and in tune you're still left with the issue of tone. The purest and perfectly in-tune notes can still sound bad if they're played with poor tone. However, there are many methods and tricks to help your violin bowing, which can instantly improve your tone. 5 Points to Consider for Violin Bowing 1. Pre …
