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 initially started lessons with Jessica in CA. When I moved to the other side of the country four years ago, we decided to try ways to continue online. After some trial and error, I’m so glad we stuck with it. It’s worked out beautifully even before “Social Distance” was a thing!
Jeanne
Jessica is not only a very talented musician but a great teacher! Her instruction was clear and understandable and she seemed dedicated to her students. I was an adult student and had always wanted to learn to play the violin. I took lesson for three years until my schedule became too busy. I would definitely recommend her to potential students of all ages.
Nate
Jessica's mix of outstanding skill as a professional musician, her effective read of how different personality types approach music, and her distinct ability to transfer skill and understanding through a teaching mentorship - were THE factors that brought me back to the violin after a hiatus brought about by a poor match between me and a previous teacher. Whether music theory or technique, Jessica's teaching helped me through barrier after barrier. I am so fortunate to have found her.

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!
