Private Violin Teacher

Playing the violin is easy, once you realize that it is a kind of singing! Although it has perhaps the most complicated technique of any instrument, it is simple once you understand the focus of the technique.

About Stephen

I have been playing music on the violin since the age of 7, composing since I was 14, and playing and performing on the guitar since I was 18. I've written a lot of music, and this past spring had works performed in Virginia and two in Manhattan. I have taught music for over 15 years, in college

Private Violin Teacher

Born with perfect pitch, I started playing the violin and piano at the age of four. I am a classically trained violinist. Music is my biggest passion and I am currently auditioning for graduate programs. I did my undergraduate training from the Boston Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. I received scholarships from both institutions. I also hold a Bachelor of Science degree from University of California San Diego (UCSD). My past teachers include violinists from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the concertmaster from Indianapolis Symphony.

I wholeheartedly understand that studying and understanding an instrument and its complexities is challenging, but it can also be incredibly rewarding and fun! It is a great way to express oneself and connect with others. I believe in incorporating music theory and ear training into learning the instrument, especially at a young age. I care deeply about each student's need and desire in terms of musical growth and promise to make the lessons

Both my daughters loved violin with Marina (8 years of lessons)! She is patient with beginners and inspiring with advanced students.
Makell
I have been playing the violin for 9 years, and 3 of those years Marina Hallows was my teacher. In those years she has taught me more than previous teachers. She possesses many good qualities for teaching, I especially like her way about technique. Since applying her method I've improved dramatically, and do not regret taking lessons from her. Because of Marina, my playing is much more advanced.
Katelin
I have played violin for 16 years, and took lessons from Marina for about 3 of them. I learned more in those 3 years about posture, technique, position, intonation, etc. than I ever did before then. She is very particular to detail and requires you to do your best whether in person or online. I was challenged to exceed and grow far beyond the things I had previously learned, and began to be quite advanced in my playing thanks to Marina's teachings.

Online Violin Teacher

Students can start with me as a beginner or as an advanced student looking to learn new practice skills, new technique, skills, and bow strokes. Students work on scales, exercises for tone and coordination, vibrato, solos, sight reading, rhythm, audition music, and orchestral music. They get 2-6 opportunities to perform per year. I can teach a variety of music styles such as jazz, classical, romantic period music, 20th Century music, contemporary music, bluegrass, Celtic, Irish Fiddle, Scottish Fiddle, movie music, and popular music. I recommend many youth orchestras in the area that I encourage my students to join. Some of my students go to Italy in the summer with their orchestra. I can help you work on audition music for All Southern Youth Orchestra and All State Youth Orchestras and other Youth Orchestras. I go at the student's pace and also start out many beginners that have reached Suzuki Book 10 level.
