Highly recommended! The most insightful and kind teacher. I had learned so much from him and dramatically improved every aspect of my violin playing. I was very fortunate to have learned from him.
Drew Y.
I was a student for over six years of Dr Chin Kim, from pre-college into my undergraduate studies. His encyclopedic knowledge of violin technique, repertoire, and history of the craft is unparalleled and still enamors me to this day. He is a masterful pedagogue who can offer students of the violin at all levels-even full professionals-access to unprecedented knowledge and understanding. I have since risen to be one of those professional products of Dr Kim’s teaching myself, with a graduate degree from the Shepherd School of Music followed by a tenure in the concertmaster pool at The Orchestra Now from 2016-2019-and I attribute much of this success to the knowledge and attention given by Dr Kim.
Corinne
Dr. Kim helped me build the foundation to my violin playing. As a young learner at 8 years old, he shaped my technique and provided me with the guidance that helped me become the violinist I am today. I studied with Dr. Kim for 10 years up until I went to college, where I am earning a degree in music. I can attribute this privilege to Dr. Kim for pushing me to grow and for teaching me so much during my early years.

I am very passionate about disclosing all emotion and really digging into the heart of music, which is why lessons with me won't just be lesson on the HOW of learning to play an instrument, but on the WHY. Once you learn how, why is it important to play in that manner, what benefits are there to a certain bow hold, etc. These are just some short examples of the kind of mindset I encourage with my teaching. Learning an instrument is more than just moving some fingers and a joint or two. It's about focus, becoming self-aware and also becoming your own teacher in the process. What you get out of it, is what you put in. You decide.

As a violin teacher, I love helping my students achieve their goals!
I believe not only the results matter, but also the journey. I focus my lessons on helping the student learn and have a deeper understanding of music theory, harmony, rhythm, technique, and how all those apply to the violin. I specialize in classical music and I use methods such as Suzuki, Essential Elements, and many others to help you become a better violinist. The lessons take place in a relaxed and fun setting :)

About Tania

I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years but my love for teaching started about 10 years ago! I became fascinated with teaching as not only I have learned so much about myself as a musician and person but most importantly I have learned how to help my students become better musicians.

First class was a great experience! Super engaging, charismatic and motivating!
Erin
Tania has been so amazing. We have only had one in home session before the COVID-19 restrictions came about. She has basically had to teach both myself and my daughter how to tune and play the violin. Her patience and creativity have been so helpful. My daughter is 6, and her attention span is not the greatest. I really appreciate Tania's patience and ability to keep her focused and engaged.
Stefan
I am an adult learner, I started with a different instructor but I was frustrated with a number of things. I contacted Tania with my frustrations and then started lessons. She has been a joy to work with. Her first question to me was what my goals were. I really appreciated this, because I am an adult who has carved out 30-60 minutes each day to practice. So I definitely have goals. The overall goal of improving is nicely balanced with pieces and styles that I find interesting and enjoyable. My previous teacher was not very attentive to body mechanics and so I was hitting a wall both in terms of ability and comfort. I mentioned to him my back was hurting and he thought I was making conversation rather than asking for help. I didn't even need to tell Tania my back was hurting after practicing, because she starting suggesting tweaks to my mechanics after watching me play for just a few minutes. Playing immediately became more comfortable and enjoyable. Tania understands that playing violin is parts listening, mechanics, theory and playing. When I'm having trouble with one we will discuss parts of the others and a first it didn't seem related then suddenly I see a convection between the different parts and the connection makes my playing better. I would absolutely recommend Tania. She has a deep understanding of the topic and makes learning violin funner and easier. Scheduling has always been easy.

How Can I Make Practicing Violin Scales More Effective?

No matter how much students may groan when it comes to scales, they are very important for all beginners to know, particularly for the violin. Almost all of your knowledge about playing the violin starts with learning how to play scales, from reading sheet music to better understanding the fingerings. Of course, it is not nearly as exciting as playing one of the songs you love, but practicing scales will give you a strong foundation that will help you progress and improve. Violin scales are typ …
