Online Violin Teacher

I am a professional violinist and violist in the Boston area. I am a graduate of the New England Conservatory where I have studied with Miriam Fried, Donald Weilerstein, and Martha Katz. I have performed extensively throughout my life as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player on both the violin and viola in a variety of professional ensembles including substitute viola work with the Borromeo String Quartet. I draw from this performing background to teach my students of all ages and abilities.

I currently act as Adjunct Instructor of Violin and Viola at Merrimack College, where I serve as a primary instrumental teacher to enrolled students. I have also acted as the primary violin teacher for Main Street Music, LLC, in Waltham. Additionally, I run a private studio of 5-10 students as young as 6 and as old as 60. Of these, some never touched an instrument before our first lesson, and some are serious conservatory-bound musicians intending to make a career as a performer.

Mr. Eugene is an excellent instructor. He is informative, positive, and able to accurately assess the needs of the student. We didn't miss a beat with the virtual lesson, I felt it was as good if not better than any face to face lesson. We would highly recommend Mr. Eugene for violin (or piano), his extensive music knowledge and experience added an invaluable foundation to the instruction. Thank you!

Excellent Teacher

I am an older student and I started to learn to play the piano more than a year ago under a different teacher. I started with Eugene about 4 months ago. I was struggling with the piano previously. But after just 2 lessons with Eugene, I found myself playing confidently. Eugene explains so clearly and everything makes sense to me now. I enjoy practicing everyday now. He is excellent teacher, patient, and very professional. He is always on time.

Eugene is the best piano teacher I have ever had! He doesn't just know how the teach piano but music as well! I'm so glad that I chose him!

Learning a musical instrument should be fun, exciting, and most importantly pain-free.

About Chaul

I have been playing the violin for over 27 years. I like to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students regardless of their age. I would prefer beginners to take at least one year of piano lessons prior to learning how to the play the violin. This way students can transfer basic music knowl

I have been learning from Chaul for the past two months. She is a very supportive and patient teacher. I was a complete beginner when I first started, but after one to two weeks, I can play easy tunes like Twinkle Twinkle. Whenever I have any questions regarding the violin, she can give me helpful solutions. When I have lessons with her, I can immediately know where I need to improve and gain a few extra tips on violin playing.

I would highly recommend Chaul to you (people who are browsing on Takelessons)!

Wonderful first lesson. Thank you so much for opening many doors into my violin journey. Your teaching method is just what I need.

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.

Why Are There Different Violin Sizes, and Why Does it Matter?

One of the main concerns that violin students and their parents typically have is purchasing the right-sized violin. Obviously you can't give a five-year-old a full-size violin and expect him or her to be able to handle the instrument. And once kids are in their teenage years, trying to keep up with growth spurts can be extremely difficult, especially considering how much violins cost. Even adults can run into problems when selecting the right size. Fortunately, after a little research, selectin …
