Concetta is a super knowledgable and supportive teacher! She adjusts her teaching to student interests and needs. She teaches in a lovely space and if you are super lucky you will meet her adorable dog, pepper <3. I highly recommend her!
Micaela
Hire Concetta, especially to support a beginning violin player! She is warm, professional and very adept at finding your child's musical strengths and then identifying material to help them access and enjoy the music and instrument. AKA GOOD TIMES for all and excited to continue...as it should be. Thank you Concetta for your expertise and flexibility with schedule. Keri-Ann

I have experience in both the competition and performance worlds of Irish fiddle, however, I began playing just for the joy of it! I love to teach appreciation for Irish music and culture as well as developing your own unique style of playing. I believe in challenging but not overwhelming a student. All ages are welcome and every lesson is catered to the goals and needs of each student!

I've played guitar since I was only eight years old (over 20 years!) in many different bands, styles, and genres. I played in a traditional Irish ensemble when I was in college and have since picked up banjo, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, and bodhran (Irish hand drum). I've also helped teach group violin classes in music programs in Orlando, FL and NYC. I love playing and teaching bluegrass music, it's a special challenge both for me and the students!

I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.

I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.

Stephanie helped my younger one prepare for competition. She was highly skillful, supportive yet strict. Initially, my girl was a bit nervous to work with Stephanie because of her high reputation. Stephanie was very kind and fun, using metaphors to help my 10-year old understand the music. She not only helped my child overcome barriers to master the music piece but also shared much practical advice for competition. We did not expect this but my 10-year old won the first prize and was invited to perform in Carnegie Hall New York. Highly recommend Stephanie!!!

My teaching methods for the fiddle start with the correct setup of holding the violin and bow to be able to play with easy and not occur an injury or discomfort while learning. I help students learn to read musical notation as well as learn simple tunes by ear to help them have a broad understanding of learning to play the fiddle. I introduce Fiddle methods that come with CD's so that the student can hear and internalize a tune before learning to play it on the fiddle. I get fiddle students together so that they can learn from each other and enjoy fiddle playing at local jams once they are ready to play in a crowd. Fiddle playing is a social event and playing with others is a wonderful opportunity to have fun and learn at the same time. I teach beginners fiddle and also teach classical players the fiddle style to help them enjoy their violin experience.
I teach tunes by ear in the Old-Time genre. We start with the basic's of rhythm, learning notes by ear in a particular scale ...

Diane is an amazing teacher!! My two daughters (8 and 12yrs old) have been taking lessons from Diane for over 2 years and they love her lessons! Diane is very kind-hearted, very positive, and patient. They have a great violin rental and purchasing program with a very reasonable price and her husband as a professional luthier, setting up all the instruments for us and whenever the kids need to switch a violin size, they take care of it. We are very happy with Diane and it's hard to find a teacher like her.
Nancy
Was my first violin lesson today, and Diane is very thorough and easy to follow. She is excited about the violin and not just a teacher so I already know that I have a great teacher. I am so excited about my journey with her!
Amber A.
Diane is a fabulous teacher!! When my daughter wanted to start violin and fiddle I knew I would need to know something about violin to help her at home. So, Diane taught my 5 year old and me. Diane really has an amazing bond with my daughter and has truly become one of our family... She makes the lessons fun and engaging for my daughter... She takes a personal interest in her students and gears the lessons to their level. Diane is always willing to work with you when it comes to schedules as well, for example: summer time vacations.... I highly recommend Diane as an instructor. She knows her instrument, her theory, and how to convey the information to adults and small children. We have now been taking lessons for a couple of years and my daughter still looks forward to them and that is due to the investment that Diane has personally made in their relationship!

What's the Difference Between the Violin and Fiddle?

Is that a fiddle... or a violin? It's a common question, and one that baffles many beginner musicians. So what's the answer? When it comes to the actual instrument, there actually aren't any differences. What distinguishes a violin from a fiddle is what kind of music you're playing with it. A musician playing folk, bluegrass or country, for example, would most likely refer to their instrument as a fiddle; those who play other genres (jazz, classical, etc.) typically call theirs a violin. …
