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.

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

I began my interest on the violin at a young age, starting at six within my elementary school. As I grew older, I became enamored with the sound and craft of the instrument, putting my knowledge into it deeply as I wished to pursue it with reverent passion. I understand the difficulties and challenges facing those wishing to pursue the violin, from money to teaching accessibility. I've seen many a great talent give up due to this. I make learning flexible but fun; engaging but technical and most of all, understanding and tailored for the individual needs of the student. I specialize in string instrumentation and have a degree in music education, working towards my master's to give the gift of music to all, especially the realm of string instruments.

She cancelled 20 minutes into the lesson. Very unprofessional.
Dalia
My lesson with Ashley was wonderful. She is very patient and great at explaining things to an adult beginner like me, and clearly very passionate about violin music and teaching. She was very easy to get in touch with after I set up the lessons. Thanks!
Kathleen M.
Ashley was very helpful to me. I was floundering. I am a brand new 'musician', still learning to read music. I would still be working with her, but I had to move suddenly. She was very encouraging and I hope to be able to continue lessons again with someone in my new location.

For my beginning violin students, I have found the Essential Elements Series to be highly effective, as well as the Suzuki methodology. All lessons will typically start with scales/arpeggios and be followed with the selected piece(s) we have chosen together. All of my students will attest that I set clear and high expectations for every lesson, yet am very understanding, friendly and approachable right from the start. My goal is to provide every individual with the tools necessary for becoming a well-rounded musician, so that they too can share their love for music with others.

Great lesson. Received good feedback on technique.

I had a great class with Michael. He is extremely experienced in teaching and he has a very focused teaching strategy. Definitely take his class if you are interested in cello.
Yemi A.
I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now. I've taken lessons before with other instructors (though not in cello). Michael is one of the best instructors that I have ever had. He instructs and challenges you to get better, while at the same time being patient with your development. It has been a pleasure being a student of Michael.

Hello and Welcome. I've been playing violin for 30 years and love sharing the gift of music with my students. I teach students of all levels, ages 8 - Adult. I believe it's never too late to learn the violin. I'm classically trained, but I can also teach other genres of music including celtic, bluegrass, jazz, and popular music. I provide instruction in proper violin technique, posture, intonation, listening, and music reading. I believe learning the violin should be a fun experience and I greatly enjoy helping others become successful players. I look forward to meeting you soon!

About Julie

I cater my lessons to the individual needs of my students and truly believe that every student has the potential to master the violin. I maintain a safe learning environment, where mistakes are seen as a positive part of learning. I start beginners out with learning the fundamentals of the violin,

I really enjoy Julie's lessons. Being an adult learner, I was nervous starting as a beginner. But Julie is very encouraging, patient, and knowledgeable. She has helped me become a better player and learn techniques which I struggled with when trying to teach myself. I highly recommend, she's a fantastic teacher!

I believe in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere between teacher and student that promotes the optimal mindset for the student to progress, and to believe in themself.

Technique-wise, there will be lots of work on intonation, tone production, and accuracy of rhythms!

Musically, I like to ask the student for their own ideas, and offer my input afterwards. Music is an expressive art, and the teacher's job is to help the student best express themselves.

I tend to let students play everything that they have practiced for me before making comments. Using my tablet, I notate all ideas and corrections on a pdf version of your music, and email the pdf to you after the lesson.

I am currently a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at the University of Oklahoma, where I am on fellowship as a violinist in the resident graduate string quartet, the Crouse Quartet.

My son likes how he teaches and encourages. The lesson was very fun.

I sense that I have hit the proverbial jackpot in having Josiah as my instructor. After several weeks of lessons, I can confidently say that he is a gifted teacher and all around wonderful human being. Each lesson, he manages to marry knowledge, humility and wit in a manner that both encourages and challenges me in my playing. I am so thankful and privileged to be taught by such a wonderful individual.
