First lesson for my 11 year old son with Christina. She has a very nice studio that my son was very comfortable in. She identified his level and sent him home with much more difficult pieces than his previous teachers. He has been practicing more because it is more difficult but also he seems to enjoy the challenge which she created for him. Thanks Christina, I am looking forward to watching him progress under your guidance.

Such a wonderful teacher ! Christina is kind and so patient with kids who are learning music. She is so smart and her knowledge in music is amazing. My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

Private Violin Teacher

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I'm an NYC-based violinist with over 15 years of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on the spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique, students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson time is also devoted to preparing students for ...

Lauren has been an amazing teacher and mentor. Her teaching technique and talent has made a huge difference in my teenage daughter's musical journey.

Lauren is a cheerful and patient instructor. She has helped our daughter elevate her skill and proficiency with the violin, and encouraged her to expand her style and technique. Lauren is always punctual, and she seems willing to spend a few extra minutes if necessary at the end of each lesson. She's also flexible with her scheduling. If we have a conflict, she does her best to work around it. Highly recommended.

About Seth

Welcome to my profile! I'm a violinist, composer, but first and foremost I'm a teacher. I love to get under the hood to see how music works, and that's what I want to share with you. My students should expect to take a deep dive into the music they're studying. I don't just want to teach you how

Online Violin Teacher

When it comes to violin I use both book and audio. I want to help my students learn to not only read the music but to also hear and feel it. I have been teaching this way for the last few years and found that my students have a deeper understanding of the music by learning the see with their ears. Each student is tasked with coming up with goals that they want to reach, goals their parents would like for them to reach and from there a personalized path for learning is created and followed.

About April

I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music

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!

What's the Best Violin for Fiddle Playing?

When someone decides to learn to play an instrument, one of the first things to do is to look into buying the instrument. This process varies depending on the instrument, and is especially unique when it comes to buying violins, or fiddles. Many instruments are mass produced in factories, producing batches that all sound the same. On the contrary, fiddles are not usually built this way.  The best sounding ones are handmade, and therefore, all unique.  When musicians are looking to buy a …
