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

"Susanna is a great teacher.

I have never played a violin before, and she is walking me through the process with patience, clear instructions, different interesting and fun ways of explaining concepts, which make lessons flow easily. By the time the lesson ends, I can hardly notice that an hour has passed by.

It is a joy to have her as a teacher. I have had a few questions off schedule, and she has never failed to answer them promptly.
I look forward to every lesson I have with her to keep learning to play this beautiful and amazing instrument."

"It's a blaze to work with Luther! He identified my problem very quickly and provided concrete advices on improving the sound. His understanding on how beautiful sound is made is very clear and systematic. There are so many dimensions in the sound making for violin but he always breaks it down and works on each individual part of my postures and bowing. My sound is now much fuller than before! He also not only teaches violin but also how to think about music in general. I feel like I am constantly critically thinking on how I can experiment with each phrase after I take lessons with Luther. I will highly recommend Luther if you want to find a violin teacher!"

All Grown Up in the Big Apple - NYC Violin Lessons

By Laura K. - New York City Violin Teacher

When people I meet ask me what I do and I tell them I’m a music teacher, most assume one thing: that my violin studio is full of children. They picture the eager six-year-old with a tiny, curvy black box knocking on my door, ready to saw away at their scales – and they’re not wrong! What they’re surprised to learn, however, is that just as many adult students are knocking on my door. As a teacher of private violin lessons in New York City, I’ve found that some of my most interesting lessons are taught to people with full-time jobs.

Being a singer and violinist, I began all of my musical journeys before I graduated from college. I learned to read music at the same time I learned to read words, so each time my grade school students walk through my door, I remember where learning the violin fit into my life, much as it fits into theirs: one more after-school activity, an introduction to a future love and possible career. But my adult students come for a different reason, and the violin plays a different role in their lives. They have already chosen their careers, established their daily routines and accepted their stresses – and the violin is a new friend, a way to relax, an outlet and oasis. When they pick up that violin, none of the pressures of their everyday lives follow them, and they take solace in learning something new and beautiful during their violin classes.

In the hustle and bustle of NYC, it’s easy to get weighed down; with each adult student lesson I teach, I know that I give my students a vacation from that, and I get the opportunity to introduce them to a world they’ve grown up without knowing. It’s never too late to learn. Find out what you have been missing by signing up with a local violin instructor today!
