For my beginning violin students, I have found the Essential Elements Series to be highly effective, as well as the Suzuki methodology. All lessons will typically start with scales/arpeggios and be followed with the selected piece(s) we have chosen together. All of my students will attest that I set clear and high expectations for every lesson, yet am very understanding, friendly and approachable right from the start. My goal is to provide every individual with the tools necessary for becoming a well-rounded musician, so that they too can share their love for music with others.

Great lesson. Received good feedback on technique.

I had a great class with Michael. He is extremely experienced in teaching and he has a very focused teaching strategy. Definitely take his class if you are interested in cello.
Yemi A.
I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now. I've taken lessons before with other instructors (though not in cello). Michael is one of the best instructors that I have ever had. He instructs and challenges you to get better, while at the same time being patient with your development. It has been a pleasure being a student of Michael.

“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!!

I work in NYC as an actor/musician, and am currently The Fiddler in the Drama-Desk winning revival of The Fiddler on the Roof Off-Broadway! As a classically trained musician, I have found myself playing a wide range of genres in my professional life, from musical theater to bluegrass. Our lessons will include scale work, ear-training, and a range of repertoire catered to your wants and needs!

Lisa (Catherine’s mom)
We love Lauren. She is making violin a great experience for our daughter (11 yrs old). She is very thorough and encouraging, and introduces interesting music that is fun and challenging for a beginner student. Our daughter says she can truly feel her own improvement, and is really happy to have additional lessons with Lauren, beyond what she receives in school. Lauren is flexible with scheduling and very reliable, and we intend to stick with her - and with the violin- for the duration!
Lauren
Lauren is an awesome violinist. I worked with her in a show and watched her tackle many different styles of music, improvise with other musicians, and collaborate on new material. I would recommend her to anyone!
Ruby
Lauren Thomas is an excellent musician with a tremendous amount of patience and a seemingly boundless supply of talents. As a fellow musician who has played professionally alongside Lauren, I have witnessed first hand her skilled mastery of both the flute and the violin -- as intuitive as she is technically proficient. Apart from her musical abilities, she's kind, fun and sensitive and would make for either a great beginner violin teacher or as an instructor for someone with intermediate skills looking to expand their abilities. Cannot recommend her highly enough! Whether you're seeking instruction in the flute or the violin, Lauren's the woman for the job.

I love teaching violin and have been doing it for over 10 years. I believe private lessons are an essential component to successful musical development and growth. It is my hope that my students develop the tools they need to become independent musicians. I strive to create an atmosphere that fosters not only growth in technique, but in character, personal discipline, and a long-term appreciation for music. Every lesson is tailored to fit my student's needs and interests.

Shadwa is awesome! She’s very patient and understanding of student needs. She’s also very encouraging and helpful, whether you’ve had violin experience or not, and makes learning to play so much fun!
Christine
I have learned a lot from my lessons with Shadwa. She has a knack for explaining technique, for making the connections between the physical movement and the sound produced. (Yes, it really does help to stand up straight!) She takes a personal interest in her students, which makes for a great lesson atmosphere. We established longer term goals that we could work towards; I appreciated her patience and creativity. Even scales became more than just boring drills! I definitely recommend her as a viola teacher for adults!

Want to find a comfortable way of playing the violin with confidence, fullness of breath, and ease? Want to develop your ears and violin technique so you can effortlessly play anything you hear or see on a page? I have taught violin for 10 years, including 2 years at the college level, hold 3 classical performance degrees from internationally renowned musical schools, have studied jazz violin and piano extensively, and have spent years developing my skills in singing, composition, and improvisation. My experience teaching yoga and meditation, as well as my experience as a collegiate track and field athlete give me the tools to help my student overcome tightness, shallow breathing, and lack of confidence. My diverse skill set, my love of music and teaching, and my immense care for my students help me to cater to each student's needs and enable me to inspire every student to find their own musical voice and the joy of sharing music.

About Michael

I received my Bachelors degree from UCLA, Masters from Eastman School of Music, and Artist Diploma from the Royal Conservatory Glenn Gould School, all specializing in violin performance.

Michael is a great teacher. He has creative methods of teaching violin based on ear training and relaxation which builds strong foundation of violin playing for students.
Graham
Michael is an exceptional teacher. My wife and I began to learn the violin with Michael. Not only is he an extremely talented musician but also patient teacher. I would highly recommend him.
Joe B.
Michael is a great teacher for students of all ages. He is patient and innovative, and was able to help me overcome shortcomings that I had developed from when I played years ago growing up. The breadth and depth of his experience in music performance and teaching, combined with his competitive athletics experience and meditation skills, allows Michael to develop in his students a broader foundation for success. His ability to draw from a variety of music genres and teaching methods helped me to be a better musician and to enjoy playing the violin again.

Laura is instilling a love of violin in our child while teaching correct methods.
She provides appropriate challenges and goals with a plan to achieve those goals.
She has a sweet spirit that is peaceful and my child loves to learn with her.
She goes out of her way to help my child learn a song is has asked to learn on her own by breaking it down in learnable chunks. An excellant teacher!"

""I look forward to lessons every week. In these 10 months, I have gained confidence in my ability to learn the violin. I am a beginner (hobbyist) and I feel I learned more in the first four months as Dr. Olevsky's student than I would have learned in a year with any other teacher. Dimitry's teaching style is very concise and technical. From the very first lesson to present, he strongly focuses on form, technique and efficiency in learning, which is ultimately making all the difference in my progress. In hand with technique, Dimitry is exceptional at using theory, analogies and stories to help work through each step of the learning process. He is also very insightful and willing to share stories, history, and/or any information related to his experiences as a musician...which I enjoy hearing. I find Dimitry to not only be a fantastic teacher, but a patient, kind, and funny person who is passionate about what he does and what I am there to learn. He has high standards and exp ects exceptional effort from me as a student..which is a lot of hard work. In return; however, I have unlimited access to his wealth of knowledge and experience...and sometimes I get to just listen to him play the pieces I am learning which is worth all of the effort in and of itself. So beautiful""

How to Set Up a Violin Bridge | Violin Tips

There's one important - and slightly intimidating - hurdle that all violin students have in common. Whether you're a complete beginner looking to make a cheap, factory-made instrument more grateful to play, or a more advanced student wanting to customize your "forever" instrument to suit you and you alone, the basic knowledge of how to set up a violin is worth grasping even if your interest doesn't extend much beyond curiosity and a love of tinkering with things.
