Anna is very good at explaining terms and methods in a way that can be easily understood by a novice such as myself by catering to one's style of learning while at the same time ensuring that the student remain grounded on the fundamentals whether it is in the finger positioning, bowing strokes, or proper posture. I love how she is able not only to identify things that I might be doing wrong but also solutions to difficulties that I might be having during the lessons. As a result, I am very happy at how I have progressed in my skill level since I started a couple of months ago. She is very patient, listens to concerns of the student, very easy to talk to, and has a laid back learning environment. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know who might be interested in learning the violin, whether young or old like myself.

Music should never simply be a rote-learning process. We develop real artistry. My students learn how to interpret, transform, and create music. From the first lesson, we experiment with various musical "ingredients" and revisit these tools often as we move through a lesson series or repertoire. Students explore a variety of styles and learn to read, compose, and improvise. Students as young as five have created their own theme and variations on a favorite tune with these techniques.

About Lauren
Hello! My name is Lauren S., and I am excited to bring out the musician in you!

We have all sorts creating and learning—children and adults in their first lessons, teens and preteens performing and competing, working professionals looking for a creative love, and retirees coming back to an instrument from many years before. We have parents & children, siblings, and friends who learn and love to make music together!

Whether you're searching for yourself or your child, I would love to invite you to Musical Life—my beautiful in-home studio—and help you meet your musical goals.

We focus on developing true artistry and giving them the fundamental tools to be able to play and create various styles of music including classical, musical theater, folk, contemporary, Christian, and more.

We play from the very first lesson and learn o
ther concepts such as music theory, literacy, and technique in subsequent lessons.

My students are involved in school & community ensembles, school & community theater, and district contests. I support and seek out these opportunities according to their interests.

Please send me a note! I can't wait to get started.

Columbus, OH

View Full Profile

I began playing the violin in fourth grade and continued all the way through high school. I spent a lot of time learning the technique of solo playing as well as the balance necessary with the other instruments of the orchestra. I also spent two years in my high school’s chamber orchestra.

My studio is ideal for the study of violin because I can accompany my students on my grand piano.

About Ben
Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

I teach basic through intermediate violin using the Essential Elements repertoire and my own personalized string exercises. Group lessons are available but I do not teach Suzuki. For the specific times and days for group lessons please contact me first.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production).

· Upright Bass · In studio
Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

I am a professional violinist with over 10 years of teaching experience. My specialty are beginner or intermediate students of any age! We will learn music theory, proper posture, beginner-through-advanced violin technique, and more, based on my own musical education at the University of Michigan and the Royal College of Music in London. I approach lessons with excitement, positivity, and creativity, and will help each student grow in both skill and love of playing the violin!

About Aviva
I am a professional violinist and teacher with 20 years of playing, and almost 10 years of teaching experience. This July, I received my Master's degree in violin performance from the Royal College of Music, the #1 performing arts conservatory in Europe and the UK.

I teach violin because it is my passion, because I love music, and because of the joy, confidence, and positive motivation my students experience over the course of their lessons. Every student is unique, and my approach tailors to the needs, questions, and interests of my students. Together, we develop strong technique, healthy posture and hand positions, a great understanding of music theory, quick note-reading and sight-reading skills, and a variety of tools to play beautifully and expressively.

In addition to my education, my teaching draws on extensive experience i
n orchestras, chamber groups, and as a soloist, across many U.S. states and abroad. I was assistant concertmaster of the Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra in London, won state and national competitions in chamber music, and performed for live broadcast on Chicago's classical radio 98.7 WFMT as well as National Public Radio's program, "From the Top."

Viva Aviva!

I am an adult student that is new to the violin but I do play a number of other instruments.

Aviva is an exceptional instructor. So patient and so proficient. Aviava seems to have an innnate ability to know just when to be "picky" and when to perhaps "let a few mistakes" slide. The result . . . I am making consistent progress and know exactly where to focus my time and attention.

Aviva is a gentle but effective motivator and, as such, I alway look so forward to my weekly lesson - and I am definately inclined to work hard so as to try to "please" my teacher.

I have become all but obsessed with all things violin, and much of that is directly attributable to this delightful and talented maestro!

Please do not hesitate to work with her. I can absolutely promise you that you will be glad you did.

Let's journey into the violin matrix together! This partnership includes an exemplary method of developing classical technique and musicianship. I have always had a passion for music education; recognizing value in a connected musical process for all age ranges and skill levels. All individuals are welcomed and encouraged to bring an interest in foundational learning and trusting the process. The violin matrix produces confident violinists with an improved musical process and performance experience. These skills are often life changing to any student who comes through the door with curiosity and imagination. It's not just just a philosophy, but rather a pragmatic means towards musical and social development that altered the course of my life as well. I look forward to sharing it with many more motivated students.

About Kyle
About Me

Being a young professional violinist and teacher, relatability and authenticity are key factors within my lessons. We are now living in a deeply globalized and modern world, therefore relationships with active and and ambitious musicians are necessary. The moment that one thinks they have learned "what it takes" is exactly when others are able to surpass them. Stemming from this mindset, I also continue my studies with some of the best violinists and other musicians that I have encountered from around the world. This demonstrates a principal of not only informed teaching, but also living the lifestyle that I preach every day.

Experience

For many years, I have been working closely with one of the most talented violinists of our generation, Cory Lee ( graduated - The Juilliard School & Yale School of Music ). Mr. Lee has perform
ed as a violin soloist in Carnegie Hall on several occasions, is a member of the acclaimed New York City ensemble ETHEL, and founder of Liberated Performer; a game-changing teaching method on how to understand and overcome performance anxiety.

As a result, I have been invited to live and study in New York City and abroad over the past five years. While in NYC, I performed in many notable venues including The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Le Poisson Rouge. Afterwards, my development led me to Reykjavik, Iceland for an intense training period in violin and vocal performance. During this time, I was able to experience first hand exactly what it takes to invoke a career as a musician within some of the most challenging and rewarding musical environments.

Education - 2013 to 2017

Bachelor of Arts degree from Denison University in violin performance ( 4.00 / 4.00 music major GPA ) and received the distinguished achievements of Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa.

Newark Granville Symphony Orchestra – 2016 Season

The NGSO is an all professional orchestra located in Ohio, performing several full concerts of classical as well as popular repertoire throughout the year.

Next Festival of Emerging Artists – 2015 and 2016 Seasons

Performs exciting new music written by living composers. As a string chamber orchestra of 20 members, we collaborate with some of the most in demand soloists of our generation. My two participating seasons have included multiple performances at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City while respectively featuring Jeffrey Zeigler (2015) and Nadia Sirota (2016).
