Whether you're 3 or 103, if you're playing violin (or starting to play!) I hope you're EXCITED about it!! Over the years, my students have said that their lessons are/have been their favorite times of each week. I believe learning to play viola should be full of joy, learning, thinking, and feeling. Bring that joy alive for yourself by partnering with me as your musical guide. I bring over 30 years of experience and pure joy to my work, and I'd love to share that with you!

About Jill

Jill has been great! I’m an adult beginner who was nervous about jumping into learning the Violin. Jill is very helpful, super encouraging and knowledgeable. Also very flexible with my schedule. I recommend her to anyone starting out. I look forward to my next lesson!

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

Panagiota did a wonderful job with my 11 year old daughter. She is a beginning violin student that wanted some extra help while school is out. We have signed up to take weekly lessons with her as my daughter was extremely happy with the lesson.
Zion
I started lessons with Panagiota as an adult with zero expectations. After completing a year of lessons with her, what I’ve been able to accomplish has far exceeded my expectations. Panagiota is always patient, kind, and encouraging. She always helps point out when I might be developing a bad habit or my timing is slightly off. I’m now learning second position and am on Suzuki Book 3. Panagiota is a phenomenal teacher and if you apply a strong work ethic, I say anything is possible under her tutelage :)

Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

Although I mainly sing now, I was originally a violinist and played all through college in professional orchestras, quartets and even as a soloist.

As a professional Music Educator, I have run String Programs in various International Schools among many other instrumental ensembles. I've conducted student orchestras & built many programs from scratch. Please see the links in my profile of the beginner orchestras as well as my playing!

Although I do not play professionally anymore, I still play very well, and am a perfect teacher for a beginner and intermediate student. I know how to get students started quickly and with confidence. Choose me to jump start yourself or your child.

I think my biggest strength as a strings teacher is helping this tedious time as a beginning violinist be fun and useful. My students really enjoy their lessons. I also have a lot of experience online and anticipate all of the normal issues (tuning, instrument care, etc;)

Mary is a fantastic teacher. My 2 daughters eagerly look forward to their violin and ukulele classes every week. She is great at engaging them and they have made so much progress with her.
Corrie
I am an adult and have wanted to learn how to play the violin for many years, since I am able to work from home- I decided to invest in online lessons, Mary provides very specific and helpful feedback, she is encouraging, she has helped me to understand the basics to build a strong foundation, I practice between 2-3 times weekly (30 minutes at a time), the difficulty level has progressed along with my skills, she is able to demonstrate techniques, Mary has helped me to fine tune my own abilities, I am left handed so use of the bow has been more tricky for me- she was able to guide me through this difficulty and explained how I should be practicing in order to improve my skill level, I am enjoying learning a new instrument and look forward to advancing my proficiency with the violin, I enjoy the lessons- helps me to think differently- I have always enjoyed having music in my life

Mary is an very great teacher. She always makes sure you understand what she is saying or asking to do. She goes above and beyond to make you not doubt yourself. Would recommend her to anyone.

The Best in Online Violin Lessons and Tutors

Are you looking for a way to get started on the violin, or take your skills to the next level?

If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Private violin lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher - whether in-home, studio, or online - are the best way to learn to play.

From the classical violin repertoire to country fiddle tunes, all your favorite melodies will be within reach when you have a professional teacher on your side.

Why Take Violin Lessons?

Although there are plenty of online resources for learning the violin, nothing replaces having a teacher. Everyone approaches the instrument in their own unique way, and personalized instruction is critical to making the most out of practice time.

Our violin teachers work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. Your tutor can teach you violin bowing techniques, fingering exercises, violin theory, and about different types and body parts of violins, so that you can maximize your learning experience.

If you’re the parent of a budding musician, online violin lessons make it possible to get the benefits of music lessons right from the comfort of your home. Online lessons make scheduling more flexible, and there’s no need to drive to the teacher’s studio!

Even if your child has no interest in becoming the next Paganini, violin lessons can help him or her learn good study habits, and even boost performance in the classroom. In addition, playing with other musicians can help develop social skills and confidence in a fun and supportive way.

With every lesson, you or your child will discover more freedom and expression on the instrument. You’re just a click away from connecting with a world-class violin instructor!

Online Violin Lessons for Beginners

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, our instructors come from a variety of backgrounds, making it easy to find the perfect match for your interest and skill level. Each violin tutor's specialties are listed in their profile, along with details about their background, photos, student feedback and lesson availability.

Students taking online classes can learn at their own convenience, enjoy better rates, and choose from a wider selection of teachers nationwide.
