Each lesson will be taught in response to current needs of a student but the following are the parts that make up an entire lesson:
- Technique
- Theory
- Music
- Practice
All together are basic fundamentals.

My job as a teacher is to help you find a place for music in your daily life and to make a practice time more of an experimental discovery play, than boring work. Once you find a key, it opens up a whole new world of communication.

As a private violin instructor, I believe that education is impossible without student’s motivation and passion. Perhaps you have decided to become a professional musician or maybe you want to play for your own enjoyment... Whatever your goals are, I can lead you there! Let's make it happen together because it is never late to follow a dream!

I recommend younger children travel to me for the best learning experience.

- Tbilisi State College of Music and Arts - Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance.

I am very fortunate to love teaching because it allows me to share my knowledge and incredible experiences that I have acquired in my 30 years of being a m
usician in Europe and the United States.

Would highly recommend as a teacher for beginner-adults. Zhana is a wonderful, patient, and constructive teacher and has several regular adult and child students.

I've gone to her for the past 2 years as we work through the first few suzuki levels. As an adult learner, violin is tough but Zhana breaks it down and gives helpful feedback.

She also goes above and beyond for her students by organizing recitals a few times a year. Her adult-students and child-students all perform at recitals.

About Brian
My musical interest began as early as I could remember. One of the most comforting and interesting things to do as a child was play with musical instruments like the toy keyboards, xylophones or drums, and of course singing! I found a voice, a magical place, where I could be myself and express deeper feelings than were made possible by talking.

After hearing a string quartet, the violin called to me in every millisecond of sound, I heard it as if it were me playing. I began lessons at age five, and here I am today! Still finding the mystical powers in every practice and teaching session. Between then and now, I managed to accomplish some musical dreams of mine.

At age fourteen, I performed a solo with the Long Bay Youth Symphony Orchestra. I went to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts for the second half of my high
school, and for most of my undergraduate studies. There, I grew unmeasurably and will forever be grateful to Kevin Lawrence, my violin professor at UNC School of the Arts. The value and sacred quality of studying music on that level continues to deepen in significance for me as time goes on.

As a performer I am grateful to have worked closely with some wonderful conductors and been invited to serve as concertmaster in ensembles such as, Symphony Orchestra of the Americas, Garden State Philharmonic, Taghkanic Chorale, Litha Symphony and Utopia Opera. Others I have played with include, Wordless Music Orchestra, Clarion Society, Orchestra Modern, Empire Chamber Orchestra, Winston Salem Symphony, Fayetteville Philharmonic, and Long Bay Symphony.

I am a Masters of Music student at the Juilliard School with extensive experience performing as a classical violinist and violist in solo, chamber, and orchestral music. I have been playing the violin since the age of 5 and have participated recently in many well known music programs such as the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, the Music Academy of the West, New York String Orchestra Seminar, and Aspen Music Festival. I have experience teaching in violin sections in orchestra and group classes through the Tufts Community Music Program. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I encourage learning by ear and emphasize the importance of efficient and organized practice. In a lesson with me, I would focus on learning classical violin technique in order to produce the best sound, while allowing the student to pick their repertoire based on their musical preferences, however always encouraging exploration of the classical genre!

About Julia
I'm a Juilliard masters student studying Viola and working towards a professional career! I teach both violin and viola, and am also available for practice help sessions or one time coachings. I have a Bachelor of Science from Tufts University, and I have studied at multiple well known music programs including the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, the Music Academy of the West, the New York String Orchestra Seminar, and the Aspen Music Festival. I have been playing the violin since I was 5 years old and viola since I was 15. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I teach with an emphasis on developing a good ear as well as good instrumental technique. The most important thing I want my students to develop is a love for music in all its diverse forms and the instrumental technique that will allow them to involve themselves in that
musical world!

Hey there explorer!

So you thought the violin is only meant to play Classical music? Think again!
With over 13 years of experience in improvisation in many different musical styles on the violin, I will show you the methods to explore and teach yourself any type of musical style you'd wish to play!

Although being mainly a Jazz violinist, I have performed and recorded in many different musical genres and improvisation styles including Blues, Trad Jazz, Rock, Indian Classical music, Bluegrass, Jewish Klezmer music and more. Since students spend most of their crucial development time individually in the practice room, as a teacher my biggest ambition is to teach my students 'how to be your own teacher' (I know it's kinda shooting myself in the foot :] ). Based on my 20 years experience playing the violin and other instruments, my training in Alexander technique, teaching artistry, psychology, philosophy and meditation, I've accumulated a set of methods and ideas about how to ...

About Omer
An award-winning Jazz violinist and a graduate of The Newschool of Jazz, These days I'm recording and performing on stages around the world playing Jazz, Rock, Folk and more.
Would love to share with you some of my secrets! Teaching improvisation and basic violin for all levels. Also teaching audition prep and ear training!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A few years ago a musician I really admire told me how he believes that every musician has to be teaching at some point in his career. He has seen it not only as a suggestion but as an obligation, a responsibility of an artist to pass on his knowledge for the next generations. My life circumstances only make this belief stronger within me year after year.

As a young Violinist in Israel that experienced a crisis with Class
ical music and the Classical school, I’ve been looking around for non-classical Violin teachers in vain. I’ve figured out that in order to play the music I want on the Violin I’m going to have to teach it to myself, thus becoming an independent learner which is most likely the greatest gift I’ve ever received as a musician and a teacher.
I had to read books, watch videos, ask people how they practice, use my ears because I had no scores to any of the music I wanted to play, explore. I had to criticize myself, I had to remain conscious about my playing and what I think is missing in my playing in comparison to other players, analyze what is it that excites me in one’s music or playing. Most of all, I had the privilege to remain attentive to any new idea being suggested to me, because no one ever taught me what the “truth” is.

Be your own teacher. That is perhaps the only “truth” I would force upon my students. As part of my teaching philosophy, I'm seeking to not only teach my students the skills they wish to acquire but to show them how to determine and teach themselves new skills they 'need' or desire to acquire.

With over 8 years of experience teaching private students of all levels and conducting Jazz violin workshops for small groups, I like to incorporate my knowledge in music teaching with other knowledge in learning techniques and education I've acquired through training in Psychology, leadership and education, Alexander technique, Teaching artistry, meditation and social work.

Omer is giving Violin lessons to my youngest son Eric for the last 6 months. Eric started playing the guitar a few years ago up until a movie he recently saw on a Japanese brilliant violinist , a week later he told us on his will to tryout the violin. Fortunately We heard Omer playing in a jazz club, and contacted him a few days after, Omer is a very talented musician but has unique capability and patient for his students. Omer is teaching with a very relaxed, positive attitude, his passion for music with small anecdotes and humour was what made Eric to get in love with the instrument and he is Impatiently waiting for his next lesson. we highly recommend Omer as a teacher and musician.

Omer helped me in preparing for my audition to the school of jazz in The Newschool, NY. Don't know my answer yet but Omer definitely helped me feel confident about my playing and be more coherent in my presentation in front of the judges. He showed me some techniques to be able to remain focused even under the stress of an audition of such significance for me and I feel like it really changed my performance for the better.
Highly recommended!! :]

“Learning is becoming more aware." My favorite Dorothy Delay quote and one that I implement in my studio. By observing, hypothesizing, deducting, and problem-solving, my students will gain the skills needed not only to succeed in music, but also in every stage of life. I offer both lessons and coachings, in which we will cover violin technique (intonation, sound, phrasing, musicality, performance technique, audition preparation, etc.), and basic music theory (musical forms, rhythm, compositional techniques, etc.)
Lessons are tailored to the students individual levels and needs.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!

About Jocelyn
My musical journey has taken me to venues in Asia, Europe, and North America, such as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Alice Tully Hall, and National Sawdust. As a chamber musician and recitalist, I've had the pleasure of working with many classical musicians such as David Finckel, Alan Gilbert, Joseph Kalichstein, Itzhak Perlman, and Esa-Pekka Salonen. I was recently featured on PBS, Good Morning America, and The Today Show, and I've had the honor of playing for dignitaries and celebrities worldwide, including Beyoncé, Joe Biden, Jerry Seinfeld, Steven Spielberg, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Jay Z.

Among various scholarships and awards, I am a recipient of the Tarisio Trust Young Artists Grant, the Juilliard School Career Grant, the National Trustees Grant, the US Embassy Berlin Grant, and the Performing Arts Consortium Grant.

Devoted
to the cause of promoting peace through music, I'm the recent founder and director of Concerts for Compassion, an organization benefiting refugees worldwide that has reached over thirty countries. Feel free to read more about it at concertsforcompassion.com

As a violist with a Master’s degree in Performance from the prestigious Colburn Conservatory, an experienced teacher mentored by respected Suzuki expert Shelley Bears Schleigh and chosen for a Teaching Fellowship with renowned Robert Duke, and an individual with an insatiable passion for psychology and development at all stages, Rachyl offers the complete package of polished performer, trained teacher, and passionate mentor. She has a particular interest in the development of young children, and, having moved to New York in 2017 from the San Diego Symphony to teach at the Brooklyn Music School, Rachyl is living her dream as a teacher. Her main goal for 2018-19 is to further this dream by expanding her studio. You/your child will receive consistent, dedicated care, individually tailored attention according to needs, abilities, and learning styles, and the inspiration to feed the brain and the soul with musical knowledge.

About Rachyl
Teaching is my passion, and the reason I moved to New York. From a young age I have always been deeply invested in the subjects of Development and Nurturing. I consider it my calling in life to pursue these subjects through teaching. My goal is always first and foremost to form a true connection with each individual student, observing their learning patterns carefully and trying different approaches until the student is thriving. My approach is continually positive, reinforcing excellent habits and achievements, and striving to find tiny goals that make a student feel he or she is constantly succeeding. My students find that their trajectory is continually upwards. You or your child would receive regular performance opportunities, regular specific feedback, consistent attention and high-quality musical training.

I am professional violist
, and a violin and viola instructor from the Philadelphia area. I graduated with my Master of Music in Performance with a Teaching Fellowship from the Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles, a selective school which accepts only 125 students total on full scholarship including room and board. I also spent one year in the San Diego Symphony. I have performed in eight states as well as in Canada and Austria. I now teach lessons at the Brooklyn Music School and for such agencies as Thumbtack, Musika, and Music To Your Home. Last year I taught music at the Brooklyn Heights Montessori School. My primary background is in the Suzuki Method; I have taken the official introductory course this past year, and plan to become officially certified this year. I have taught all levels, learning styles, and ages, I have background working with students who need special consideration, such as those on the autism spectrum or with attention disorders.

Music lessons with me are FUN! I am here to help you learn and support you along your journey.

My teaching method is special because it is tailored specifically to your needs. You are welcome if you're brand new to violin or if you've played for years.

I have been teaching privately and in music schools for 22 years and beginners are my specialty! I teach ages 4+. We learn songs that you are interested in. You will receive a balanced music education that covers all aspects of playing music.

About Mary E
I am a professional violin/fiddle player and singer, and I perform and teach music classes all over Manhattan and Brooklyn. I truly enjoy teaching and love seeing to the students needs and fulfilling what they need in order to progress as a musician. You are the most important part of our classes.

I worked for the NYC Department of Education as a substitute classroom and general music teacher (2015-2018). I have a background in students with special needs and special education. Se habla espanol.

I was award a full-tuition scholarship through an audition for the North American World Scholarship Program to attend Berklee College of Music. There I earned a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance (2003).

I have been teaching and performing music professionally for 23 years. I began my studies as a young child with the Suzuki Method (whic
h focuses on both learning by ear, substantial parental involvement, and then later reading music.) In high school I began studying jazz/blues improvisation, composition, and music theory. At Berklee College of Music I focused on jazz and all kinds of contemporary and traditional music.

After graduating I was awarded a position at the Henry Mancini Institute (2003) in Los Angeles and was privileged to work with some of the biggest names in music including Diana Krall and Christian McBride.

My favorite type of music to play these days is traditional Irish folk music, or "Irish trad". For the past few years I have immersed myself heavily in New York's traditional Irish music scene. I play regularly at several establishments in New York City alongside some of the city's finest Irish music players.

A large part of my teaching style is that you are having FUN, you are enjoying what you are learning, no matter your skill level. Even if you are an absolute beginner, we might work on playing the chorus or the riff of the song. For example, one year I had a very happy 6-year old boy learn the theme to Star Wars and another college student learning the music of MGMT.

We met Mary-Elizabeth for the first time in January 2009 by recommendation of The Royal Danish Academy of Music.
We were looking for a private violin teacher for my daughter Elisabeth, age 13, who at that time had never played an instrument before and was clearly shy and nervous about the project.
From the very first lesson, Mary-Elizabeth not only showed the skills and the basic technique of teaching the violin to younger children, but most impressing was her enthusiasme and joy that immidiately spread to the student. You could tell, that this was a teacher who loved playing too!!
And that opened all the doors for the difficult practising and today I have a daughter who enjoys so much playing that she brings the violin on every holiday to make sure she always has the instrument nearby!
I can sincerely recommend Mary-Elizabeth for teaching and I guarantee you, the students will love playing and look foreward to her lessons!
