Private Violin Teacher

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I'm an NYC-based violinist with over 15 years of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on the spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique, students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson time is also devoted to preparing students for ...

Lauren has been an amazing teacher and mentor. Her teaching technique and talent has made a huge difference in my teenage daughter's musical journey.

Lauren is a cheerful and patient instructor. She has helped our daughter elevate her skill and proficiency with the violin, and encouraged her to expand her style and technique. Lauren is always punctual, and she seems willing to spend a few extra minutes if necessary at the end of each lesson. She's also flexible with her scheduling. If we have a conflict, she does her best to work around it. Highly recommended.

I love playing and teaching the violin, and I'm so excited to share my experience with you! I have over a decade of experience with students of all backgrounds and experience levels. My time at The Juilliard School has prepared me well for whatever challenge you would like to take on together. Whether that is growing your love of the instrument, learning a new piece, finding better practice skills, or audition preparation.

Congratulations on taking an amazing first step into learning the violin, and I look forward to meeting you in our first lesson.

I love Zachary's teaching method. He is very friendly and easy to understand. He is very passionate about teaching and it shows. I have progressed a lot after only a few lessons, and I will continue to take lessons from him. I highly recommend him :)

Zachary is a great instructor and friendly , you won't feel the stress of a regular class.I can say that I am always excited to learn because of the motivation he give. I wasn't sure at the beginning that the online lessons would work effectively and that I will see great results. I have already had 5 sessions and still have 15 left. He is so patient and gives a clear guidance to improve your level. Each week there is a prepared plan of what we will focus on depending on the performance which means you take the full use of every minute in the class. Also ,the weekly homework or exercises given helps you to know what to do to improve between each class.

My lessons are unique because I involve you in the decision making process. We will not only evaluate a piece from a technical point of view but also delve into the urtext edition to uncover what the composer actually wrote in the original manuscript and how we can produce the composer’s intended notations or musical effects with the instrument.
