I teach from the earliest beginner through adult. My violin students are currently performing for different schools and ensembles. When students are performing with orchestras, much time is spent working on that music as well as their regular music.

Ms.Diane is a really good teacher. My daughter has just started lessons with Ms.Diane, but she has really progressed very well from her prior level. Ms.Diane is very patient and fun to work with. Would highly recommend Ms.Diane!

Anna has a wonderful rapport with our son. This, I'm certain, has greatly improved the quality of the lesson and his willingness to practice. In the very short time (year and a half) that he's been taking violin, he is playing better than many of the longer studied kids in his string orchestra at school, due to the tutelage of Anna.

We have been very impressed with Anna and have also received feedback from our son's orchestra instructor that she must be fantastic based on the progress our son has made over the last school year. Thank you, Anna, for all of the encouragement and instruction you've given to our son.

I have been taking violin lessons with Connie for almost 2 years now and i would highly recommend her! She has really helped me correct a lot of my bad habits from years of just playing on my own. Connie is professional, very patient and passionate about music and teaching. I take lessons with her privately (not with Take Lessons) and am thankful to have her as my teacher!

My daughter Lauren has been taking violin lessons with Connie for the past 3 years. We are so impressed how Connie has helped Lauren develop such a love for the violin!

I can help you with everything from traditional classical repertoire to modern world, folk, jazz, and improvisation. I like to focus on music theory and reading skills, in addition to developing musicality from the first lesson. I also play electric violin and can help you to set up virtual or analogue rigs to get the best sound.

If you are searching for an outstanding violin teacher, I highly recommend Helena.  Her students benefit from her many years of teaching and performing experience as well as her extensive educational background.  When you learn musical pieces with Helena she teaches proper technique with just the right amount of music theory to produce well-rounded musicians.  Some of her best qualities are her great abundance of patience that she mixes with professionalism, kindness, a sense of humor, and a great deal of encouragement.  Helena is certainly a violin teacher you will be glad you found. I feel privileged to be her student! Thank you Helena for continually inspiring me to learn and keeping me challenged as well!

Typically, I use the Suzuki and Strictly Strings books for beginner students, and I will then advance to etude studies such as Wolfarht and Sevick in addition to the Suzuki sequels for my intermediate students. Lastly, I will add Introducing the Positions, Mazas, Josephine Trott Double Stops, and solo concertos to my advanced students.

I'm 26, learning violin for the first time. I taught myself some of the basics and a handful of simple songs for a month, then started taking online lessons from Elicia for the past two months. I couldn't be happier that I did. Although online lessons have certain difficulties (which would be present no matter which teacher you have), my lessons have been very effective in improving my skills. Elicia is really kind and patient, and is also very good at catching and correcting my mistakes. I feel like I have gotten and will continue to get much better with her guidance, and I'm glad I'm able to learn from her. I'd definitely recommend her to others.
