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

With 25 years experience as a concert soloist on stages around the globe, it is so important to learn from a professional. Having studied for years with soloist Erick Friedman and pedagogue Sally Thomas, lessons comprise a teaching philosophy based on the principles of Jascha Heifetz and Ivan Galamian. With any student, learning the proper solid fundamentals that will hold up onstage for auditions right through to performing chamber music and as soloist with orchestras is so important and it is also about developing an enjoyable environment to the student to grow.

Lessons (in studio or online) are tailored depending on the needs of each student’s individuality as there is something so wonderful in enabling a student to find their musical voice and allow them to have fun and experience the challenge of musical growth.

Hi, I am international soloist and pedagogue, I have been soloist with orchestras such as the San Diego Symphony, Rhode Island Philharmonic, Mexico City Philharmonic, RTE Concert Orchestra and The Janacek Filharmonic and I have presented masterclasses in Conservatories and Universities around the w

Greg is amazing! I knew that as a parent with a musical background it would be tough to find a teacher for my son that actually ticked all the boxes - but Greg certainly does! His method of teaching is caring, open, and friendly. Even more importantly - his lessons actually keep my son interested in the music and playing his instrument! Greg is also very focused on technique which is hugely important to me. Highly recommend!

Why I teach Suzuki and the Russian Violin method?

Suzuki is perfect for all aspiring children who hope to learn the violin. This would be a good first step for those who will learn the violin for the first time. After the student masters in gaining the “ear” for each note of the musical alphabet and is able to make the string vibrate with their bow, we move onto the Russian method immediately afterward.

Here are the things I strive for my students to achieve:
1. Development of individual musical abilities of a student based on their
careful comprehensive finding.
2. Forming of creative thinking structures.
3. Stirring up creative initiative and independence.
4. Finding the most effective ways of developing professional skills and
performance qualities in close connection with a student’s specific
giftedness.
5. Developing musical imagination and memory.
6. Forming of a will, persistency, attention, emotionality and a number of
other traits that are necessary for the ...

"My daughter and I feel he is the best instructor out there. So much so that when he moved out of state, my daughter still wanted to continue with him online. He can teach anyone from beginning to advanced. My daughter has been first violin for many years, but still improved her playing tremendously when she started taken lessons with Mr. Speedy about a year a go. He really is a great instructor!!!"
