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.
Amy
Dr. Kim is a encyclopedia of Galamian based knowledge.
Dr. YJ Cho
It’s been a long time since i first met Dr. Chin Kim, however, I clearly remember how his lesson was so scientifically approached and technically making sense in every details. Since then, I kept playing for him and got much ideas and much help from him which I still do time to time.
Although enough of his degrees, he constantly studies the music (I also have seen him taking a music theory class) and he is very diligent in self-enrichment.
Dr. Kim is very friendly to his students and he could be a good adviser not only in playing the violin but in elsewise, too.
I hope lots of musicians get a chance to meet him and play for him. I guarantee it’s worth much

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

Our family loves Matthew. He's brought music back into our home and even my 3-year-old enjoys being a part of my lessons. I've had my great-grandfather's violin since I was 10, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Matthew 3 years ago, that I really started to play and understand foundational scales, key signatures and positions. It's opened up a whole world for me, and now I love playing the violin. For the legacy, the beautiful music and the joy it brings into my life and our home.

Matthew is a fantastic teacher. I’ve known him for 20 yrs and have had many lessons. I recommend him for any level and students of any age. If you want to rekindle your love for music Matthew is your perfect teacher.

Online Violin Teacher

I began playing violin as a young child, and progressed to several hours a day during my teenage years. I taught throughout college, both as a violin instructor and as a private instructor.

My teaching programs vary according to the level of the student, and the goal he or she has set for him/herself, be it as a support to a school educational program or a personal love for music and/or the violin that seeks to develop itself into a practice.

Online Violin Teacher

I've taught people who were just beginning violin (both children and adults) to students who were working on major concertos. What is most important to me as a teacher is that the student connect with the music and their instrument by being creative and personalizing my approach for the student. I also strongly strive to make performers out of violinists and to help them engage both audiences and themselves.

About Ha-eun

I have been surrounded by music my whole life and have played violin for 19 years. I went to high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy, obtained a BM in violin performance at Oberlin Conservatory and an MM at the Boston Conservatory.

Ha-eun is a great violin teacher. I'm an adult learner that picked up the violin to try something different. I've played saxophone for 15 years, and have gone through many types of teachers. I can say Ha-eun is one of the best. She's experienced and patient. We started lessons in person and moved to online because of COVID19, and still going strong through the Suzuki book. She would be great to teach young or old alike!
Jim W.
Her help with bow hold, relaxation with the right hand and arm, will help me enjoy playing.
Kate
Ha-eun is fantastic! She is helping our 10 year-old daughter master a new piece she needs to learn within the next 2 weeks. Can't praise her enough! We do in person as well as internet lessons. During the lesson, Ha-eun is focused on the student and her passion for music and fondness of teaching others truly shows. Listening to her playing the violin to show how it should be done is a delight. We consider ourselves lucky to have such a great teacher.

"Jessica has been teaching violin to our seven year-old son for almost two years and to our five year-old daughter for several months now. Jessica is a very kind and patient teacher, is so good with kids, and teaches them in a way that is fun yet effective. Since they have started lessons with Miss Jessica, I have noticed that both of my children have become more focused and learn new concepts much more quickly than before, both in music class and at school. My once shy kids have gained so much self-confidence and now enjoy performing in front of an audience. We have only wonderful things to say about Miss Jessica and hope she continues to teach violin for a long time as the kids grow. We were really lucky to find such a great teacher and role model for our kids."

How to Hold a Violin Bow with Proper Grip: Step-by-Step Beginners' Guide

One of the most challenging parts of learning how to play the violin is learning how to hold a bow properly, as it can feel very unnatural for beginner and intermediate students. While it can be frustrating, learning how to hold a violin bow is extremely important--especially for those who are just starting violin lessons. With proper bow technique, you can essentially produce whatever tones, strokes, and dynamics you want. However, if you have trouble controlling the bow, you'l …
