Currently I'm the music teacher at Oakwood Academy Schools of Long Beach and at Kids Space in Whittier. I am also the Music Director for Arts Aloud Theater Group. I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in Voice. I've been teaching for 17 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other places where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey School, Dexter Music Academy, and ABC Unified School District. I've been complimented on my ability to teach in a way that makes my students learn very quickly. I was trained in the classical and pop/rock genres. I've toured with choirs throughout China, and the United States (including Carnegie Hall), and I have also toured with rock/pop bands in Spain, M

exico, Central America, Peru, and throughout the U.S.A.

I've worked with various vocal coaches including Grammy-nominated Ilene Graff, and Maxayn Lewis (who has worked with Celine Dion and Britney Spears).

I've worked with amazing musicians including Michael Thompson (guitarist for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and John Robinson (drummer for Quincy Jones, Elton John). I've also had the honor of working with Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime).

Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.

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.

Private Violin Teacher

Every student is unique and through my teaching I aim to treat each one as the individual they are. I work with students to help them achieve their goals while also giving them technical command of the instrument. The focus of lessons is on achieving mastery through studying the foundational elements (rhythm, intonation, tone production) in order to perform with musical expression and freedom.

I started working with Andrew after an 18 month hiatus and am very pleased. Andrew's teaching style is very adaptable, which for an adult student who works full time, is great. Some weeks I don't have a lot of time to practice and we focus on technique. Other times, we work on music and technique. He is also great about explaining the "how" and the "why" of why musicians should spend time on scales, technique, etc;
I would absolutely recommend Andrew to adult students and younger student.s

Alyssa Perrone
Andrew is an extremely knowledgeable and talented teacher. He explains technique exceptionally well, has an impressive understanding of phrasing and musicality while playing, and is very patient and understanding, he has a great sense of humor, while also giving students the right amount of push they need. He has high expectations but they are always attainable for his students, and he is very flexible with each students unique needs. I highly recommend him as an instructor, he is worth every penny and students always see quick and impressive improvement; I know I did while I studied with him.

Private Violin Teacher

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

About Chaul

I have been playing the violin for over 24 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 knowledge into violin playing, especially in the field of reading and learning new music. My goal is to help music lovers learn how to teach themselves one day when a music teacher is no longer available.

I started teaching in 2011 while I was completing the Master of Music degree at Rice University. As I finished my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in December 2017, I decided to build and expand my own studio in Burleson, TX.

I also tutor beginning, intermediate, and advanced Chinese and have always loved Chinese literature.

Thank you Chaul for a great lesson and also for being so patient with me when my computer didn't log into the session right away. I enjoyed my first lesson and am excited to have such a fabulous teacher that sent me material and information to prepare for my first session. I feel confident that I will be able to progress and I know that I will enjoy learning with you. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

Private Violin Teacher

My teaching philosophy is that music is for ALL ages and ALL abilities. I love teaching foremost because of the connection between student and teacher; I have been really blessed to have some wonderful mentors throughout my life, and I value being able to mentor others. I am here as a teacher to see you for your unique set of strengths, interests, and goals.

I have taught violin lessons locally for the past 9 years, and studied under Dr. Monte Belknap (BYU School of Music) from 2008-2012.

About Alyssa

I am a classically trained violinist, and I perform regularly with local artists, dancers, musicians, and composers. I am about to release an album this summer and am also collaborating with Alarm Will Sound on a performance of my original work for their 2020 season.

I love teaching adults and I love teaching children — of any level. Learning the violin is a beautiful skillset that can enhance creativity, logic, and problem-solving. I’ve even found that daily violin practice can be an entryway into living life more mindfully.

More about me:

From 2008 - 2012 I studied with Monte Belknap, head of the Violin Performance program at Brigham Young University. Professor Belknap is constantly innovating new ways to approach technique, and I value this approach in my own teaching. As a teacher, I model Professor Belknap's sense of innov

ation, while also drawing upon my collaborative experiences with various artists in my community. These approaches richly inform my process with my students.

Alyssa is a wonderful teacher and a professional player. Studying with her is efficient. She has a keen sense of detail, knowing what is most important to focus on for the next lesson. Her careful instruction reaches well beyond the violin as she teaches musicianship and ear-training. She'll prepare you for real-world playing at any experience level.

Ben
Alyssa is truly such an inspiring and helpful person to work with as a teacher. She knows her instrument so well, like it’s a close friend she has known for years, and is so easy to feel comfortable with as a student. She’s helping me develop a more personal relationship with how I perform and how compose that feels more like an extension of who I am. I am more well-rounded, confident, and equipped to engage with new musical challenges because of our time together each week. I cannot recommend her enough.

Whether you're a beginner looking to explore a new instrument, or a young professional preparing for an orchestral or college audition, I'm eager to share my passion of music and teaching experience with you. Throughout my teaching and performing career, I have been highly successful at helping students bring out the very best they can offer. Many of my students got accepted to study at major universities and music conservatories, and/or earned positions at orchestras or teaching institutions.

I'm strict and have very high expectations, but I was also praised for being encouraging and supportive. I strongly believe in the power of music, and the many benefits of learning a musical instrument.

About Ferenc

Music has been my greatest passion all my life. Originally from the former Yugoslavia (of Hungarian descent), I earned all my degrees in violin performance: a 5-yr Diploma from the Franz Liszt Academy (Conservatory) of Music in Budapest, Hungary, a Master's Degree from SIU-Carbondale, and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison). I've been teaching for 22 years, including 18 years as a full-time university professor (formerly Associate Professor of Violin/Viola at the University of Idaho, and Artist-in-Residence at the Universidad Juan N. Corpas in Bogotá, Colombia). Currently I teach at several institutions in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV.

Besides teaching, I've been active as a soloist and chamber musician (mainly piano trio and string quartet) as well as in orchestral playing (with more than a d

ozen professional orchestras, including the Las Vegas Philharmonic, Spokane Symphony, Wichita Grand Opera, and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra).

My daughter loves Mr Ferenc, he is so kind, patient and thorough, and works with our limited schedule. As a former violin player myself, (albeit 22 years ago) I really appreciate how exacting his standards are for form and posture and I wish my early instructors had been of his caliber.

Ted
Ferenc is an incredibly talented violinist and mentor, who used to be a violin professor before coming to Vegas. Besides being knowledgeable, he is also very patient with kids (being a parent himself). He might travel to the student's location, but I don't know for sure.

Wei
This teacher has tons of experience teaching youth, and we recommend him highly. My kids just love their lessons, even during the summer months. It is difficult to find a truly caring mentor who doesn't cancel lessons due to other commitments, but this teacher really cares about getting things "done" in his music studio. Very friendly and encouraging.

About Olivia

Born and raised in Nashville and coming from a diverse musical background, I have been playing the traditional Irish fiddle from a very young age. I've studied under teachers such as Gretchen Priest-May and Rose Conway Flanagan in the past, and currently am under the brilliant tutelage of the Sligo fiddle master Brian Conway while I am in college.

Building a repertoire of trad tunes is my forte, as well as knowing the intricacies and history of the Irish fiddle.

I have just finished studying violin and viola at the Royal Academy of Music in London. I have judt returned to the USA and I am a passionate teacher for all abilities. I am keen to work on any styles of music on the violin, whether it be classical or pop. I am a committed teacher that believes the best lessons are when the student is enjoying what they are doing and when they are able to ask any questions and feel motivated.

About Nicholas

I have just finished studying violin and viola at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Garfield Jackson. I have just returned to the USA after four years there. I am open to all genres of music, and I want to teach you what you want to learn! If you want to be a serious violinist, then I have a lot of teaching experience building essential technique, but if you find that you heard a song on the radio you really want to learn, I would be happy to teach you how to listen and work out melodies for yourself. I have always been committed to teaching and worked in several musical establishments in London including the Hap'ning place. Please get in touch if you would like my biography and list of concerts I have taken part in.

In my experience under Nick, I’ve been inspired to make the best music I can. I have played in his orchestra in London, U.K., and I was pushed healthily to a high standard. Nick is a great character and a superb musician. I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Nick is a wonderful teacher and concert musician. He has an outstanding technique and musical sensitivity. He is one of the best viola and violin players and also a great conductor.
I cooperated with him in the string quartet since 2016 (London). During our co-operation he has made a huge impact on my playing. I am very grateful I met Nick on my way - a genuine person with a huge passion for music. I would very highly recommend Nick to everyone!

Nicholas has been an excellent colleague in our string quartet and an excellent teacher to my daughter. He is very honest and patient and gives excellent advice, structures the lesson very carefully and always creates a positive atmosphere during the lessons.
He focuses on the technique but always led by music. I highly recommend Nick as a violin teacher.
