Have you been playing for a long time, or have you never picked up the instrument before? Whether you are a child or an adult, I have a style of teaching for you. I've been playing since I was a child and have a special place in my heart for the is instrument. I actually began learning from a fiddle player and trained classically later. If you want to learn how to succeed in playing this rewarding and satisfying style, this is the place for you.
Are wondering why every time you hit a certain note, it squeaks, or crunches, or sounds glassy? Or maybe you can't quite read the notes. Perhaps you are no stranger to the instrument, but need improvement of musicianship, expression, etc. Let me help you master the skills you're trying to achieve. With my help, you can make breathtaking music!

About Kimberly
I grew up in a household of 9 where music was always center stage. We would sing as a family in different venues and were often called the VonTrapp family. I have enjoyed singing and performing from a young age. I began studying flute at age 8, after scoring highest in the harmony listening exam and began formal violin lessons at the age of 9. I studied all genres including, fiddle, classical, musical theater and 20th century. I have continued to study violin since then and have performed in many orchestras and small groups, such as Honor Orchestra, the Paradise Symphony, the Yuba College Orchestra, Yuba-Sutter Oratorio Society Orchestra and more. I have been concert master and first stand in many of these. I have also soloed in many and have been the first violinist in quartets for countless weddings and other events. I have also played
in numerous pit orchestras for musicals.
I have been in choirs and soloing since I can remember. I have performed and soloed in choirs such as the Yuba-Sutter Oratorio Society, CSUS Chamber Choir, the CSUS Women's Choir and more. I have toured to Victoria, Montreal, Ottowa, Oregon and Washington. I have also been in opera productions such as The Magic Flute, Peleas and Melisande and Die Fledermaus (The Bat) with CSUS Opera. I am a recent recipient of the Saturday Club Scholarship, a prestigious award, and have won many competitions (some repeatedly) both vocally and with violin, such as the Tri-County Competition, Young Artist Competitions, and the California Soloist and Ensemble Competitions. Additionally, I have performed musical theater repertoire and have performed as lead in musicals such as Beauty and the Beast and Into the Woods. I have also soloed repeatedly with the Yuba College jazz band and at churches all around.
I have earned my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from CSU Sacramento. I have my Associates Degrees in both Music and Early Childhood Education from Yuba College. Additionally, I have obtained my certificate of completion of training from Music Together, an organization which trains teachers to teach Basic Music Competence (both in tonality and meter), and am currently teaching this curriculum.
I have been teaching music privately for over ten years to all ages, genders and abilities. Additionally, I have taught ages 0-5 years in a preschool setting for 7 years and am extremely familiar with developmentally appropriate practices for both preschool and school age, as I am a site supervisor at a child development center with a preschool and after school program. I have had many adult students as well and encourage adults to enrich their lives with music at any age! Additionally, I have experience teaching parent child classes and am familiar with how to teach to the particular needs of each family and student.
I'm extremely excited and looking forward to growing as a professional, both teaching and performing, in both the areas of violin and voice and to be instrumental in your musical growth too; I can't wait to share my passion with you and to ignite your passion for music too!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching since 2002 and have loved every minute of it! I teach all ages. I tailor my style of teaching to each student's goals and to what works for you. If you want to learn Taylor Swift music, I won't be giving you arias. On the other hand, if you wish to study classically, I have repertoire appropriate for you. I teach fiddle, classical, orchestral, 20th century and more for violin students and have experience with jazz, classical, musical theater, pop, religious, spiritual, choral, 20th century and more vocally.
For violin students, I use the Suzuki method as a pushing off point, a tried and true method used in many countries across the world, though I have other repertoire including fiddle, orchestra, small ensemble, solo, concertos, Christmas, and more. For vocalist, I start with the book, Adventures in Singing. I also have warm ups and exercises to keep you vocally healthy. I will teach you anything you want to learn! I also teach how to read music, theory and harmony, depending on your interest and tailored to your current skill level.
I am encouraging and knowledgeable. I will meet you at your current level, be that beginner, intermediate, or advanced. My students can look forward to being encouraged and growing through their time with me. I don't have preset ideas about where you should be in 3-6 months, nor do I have a one size fits all teaching style. Instead, I will work with you individually so that you will become the best musician you can be, meet your goals, and increase your enjoyment and appreciation for music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in open space, upright piano, digital piano, music stands, metronome, violins available for rent, music, staff paper and computer

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to provide the instrument with all of it's accessories (ie shoulder rest, rosin, bow and case) along with the appropriate level Suzuki book. I have instruments available for rent. My voice students should bring their own music also. I have a piano in my studio along with music stands. Of course, every student must have a pencil and come ready to have fun learning! :)

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki, solfege, art songs and arias, reading music, fiddle, classical, healthy vocal technique and musical theater. I am very good at working with any age.

I just finished our new band debut and I must say I got many compliments on my vocals and range. I must give 100% credit to the hard work Kimberly puts into every lesson with focused repetition and many great pointers on taking care of my voice. Her skills and expertise in singing and musical instruments (violin) are exceptional. If you want a teacher who puts heart and soul into every lesson for every student, Kimberly is the one. Thanks Kim!!!

She's the best! My daughter started on violin with the school and then moved on to viola. Finding a viola teacher is no easy task! In fact, finding anything for the viola - music, strings, etc ... is difficult! But Kimberly does a great job and got her off to a wonderful start. We are so incredibly happy to have Kimberly teaching our daughter. Do not rely on your child's school to teach viola - go directly to Kimberly.

Students and parents can expect lessons to be held in a calm environment that will allow students to focus and learn. I do not teach using the Suzuki method but I do however, use the Suzuki performance books. Students will be expected to learn note recognition, rhythm, how to hold the violin and bow, and proper care of the instrument. I do not suggest this instrument for students under 6-7 due to fine motor skills not being as well developed. However, there is always an exception to the rule and I have taught a couple students ages 3-5. Please contact me with any questions or Sign Up For Lessons Now!

About Sara
For 15 years, I have been studying both piano and violin extensively. It is this love of music that led me to begin formally teaching four years ago. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach not only my own private students but also in a studio in Atlanta, GA and Buford, GA. I have had the privilege of teaching students as young as 3 to those as young-at-heart of 70. Whatever age I instruct, my lessons are formulated to fit the individual. Being able to meet my students on whatever level they need has always been a great joy.
Due to my intensive background of orchestral performances, I had the opportunity to instruct students on their orchestral pieces given to them by local orchestras and prepare them for any upcoming auditions.
As a musician, I have enjoyed the opportunities of accompanying local choirs, playing with
local and well-known orchestras, performing at weddings, and providing music at various functions.
Music has always been a passion of mine since I was a young child. My parents and instructors gave me every opportunity to cultivate that love. I am so grateful to have the same chance to do so with anyone who wants to learn. Please contact me with any questions you may have.

"Music Speaks What Cannot Be Expressed, Soothes the Mind and Gives it Rest, Heals the Heart and Makes it Whole, Flows From Heaven to the Soul" ~Unknown~

Want to know what to expect during lessons? Check out the information below.

Parents and Students should expect a fun yet educational atmosphere during their lesson time. During lessons students will learn about their instrument, note recognition, rhythm, and of course how to play a song. I ask that each student have individual practice time during the week as this is the only way to truly advance and learn the instrument. I also encourage parents to be available during the lesson and during the students individual practice session. This helps ensure that students are practicing correctly (and what they are supposed to) during the week.

At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

I am a violinist, artist and singer/songwriter in Portland, Oregon who has been teaching violin for over 15 years. I believe that with enough practice, patience and dedication anyone can learn to play a new instrument. No previous experience is necessary-- just a passion for music!

NOTE: My availability is somewhat flexible so please contact me to set up a time that works!

Lessons will focus on:

-A solid basic foundation in classical music-- we can branch out from here!
-Learning to read music, use dynamics, bow, tune, scales, developmental exercises.
-Above all: having fun and pursuing a new passion.

Music is my life and has taken me all over the country and across the world and I want to share it's magic with as many people as I can!

About Naomi
Hello! I teach private violin lessons for beginners and intermediate students of all ages. I have been teaching violin for over 15 years. I love working with children of all ages and also specialize in working with adult beginning students. If you have always wanted to learn, now is the time! No previous experience is necessary-- just a passion for music!

NOTE: My availability is somewhat flexible. Please contact me to set up a time that works!

I am thorough and easy to work with. I use a combination of classical techniques and a hint of Suzuki method along with lots and lots of patience, creativity and encouragement.

About me: I am a classically trained violinist with over 20 years of experience and a diverse musical background. I've performed with the University Orchestra and the UT Opera Society at the University of Texas (wh
ere I went to school), several string quartets and many bands: folk, country, rock, experimental, pop and Mariachi to name a few. I periodically tour with bands nationally and internationally. I'm also a singer/songwriter. Additionally, I taught violin in the Mariachi program at Linder Elementary school for grades 2nd-5th for 3 years.

Equipment: I provide a stand and metronome at lessons and students just need to bring their violin and any books and accessories I assign for purchase.

For beginners, I generally start off with the Essential Elements book and/or Suzuki Method and then branch out from there. After the basics are established, students are welcome to bring their own music and ideas to the table as we continue to build a classical foundation. For middle/high school students who need extra help with their school orchestra, solo or UIL music we can make room for that too.

For those who live outside of Portland, I also offer video chat lessons via Skype/Google Hangouts/Facetime, which I've had a great success rate with and is really easy and convenient to use. In town students can also set up occasional video chat lessons anytime they feel like scheduling one (ig rainy days, limited transportation etc.)

Shaunay began playing the violin at the age of seven. She studied Music and Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California where her love of music grew even further. She has bee
n concertmaster of various orchestras and has also been involved in many performances at venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall.

I'm not going to lie it made me a bit nervous at the beginning, but Shaunay made every moment very easy and enjoyable. I wish I was able to experience more of that beautiful magic she brings with such ease, but unfortunately looks like she is moving far away from me to share what she is so good at with more people. I definitely recommend Shaunay to beginners or someone with experience. Best of luck!!!
