Students of all skill levels are welcome. I tailor the lesson type to the student rather than use a cookie-cutter approach.

About Nicholas
I am a second generation music teacher for piano and violin. I have been teaching for over 15 years as well as playing both instruments for about 30 years. I have an Associates in Music. Making lessons both fun and educational is what make my students successful in their instruments. My lessons are custom made to how the student learns, not cookie-cut. We also do bi-annual recitals in October and April to showcase the students' accomplishments.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are both fun and educational at the same time. I compromise with my students by having us each pick a piece to play on top of the usual learning pieces. My students play anything from Katy Perry to 80s music and rock ballads and in between. I use John Thompson and Fingerpower as well as a notespeller for piano and String Essentials for violin. Many of m
y students can play with both hands after six months. We do recitals each year to showcase the past year's achievements in their pieces.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For either instrument I pick up all books and supplies ahead of the lesson. I have my own violin and music stand that I use to assist in teaching.

*** Specialties ***
John Thompson, Suzuki, popular music, Gospel, New Age, and anything in between

My daughter takes violin lessons with Nikita. He is doing a great job introducing her to proper techniques and helping her learn how to read music. I am impressed by his patience and schedule flexibility. It was a good decision selecting Nikita as our violin teacher to prepare my daughter for school orchestra in the next year. We would highly recommend Nikita to our friends and colleagues wishing to learn violin.

First lesson was an excellent experience. I did not have a violin and prior to my first lesson, Nikita took me to several places to select a violin and a bow. This was invaluable to me. I love my violin and Nikita helped me get a very good price, more than 35% less than the listed price and about 40% less than what I had budgeted. He tried the violins at the places we went and people would stop what they were doing and watch and listen to his playing. It was so beautiful. I plan to have Nikita as my teacher for years to come.

A+. He is very professional and takes his time to make sure you understand the lesson. He pays very close attention to the details to make sure you do not learn or continue to use bad habits. His teaching method is very impressive. He makes sure that you know why you are doing something and not just memorizing chords. He puts theory into the lesson so you understand why you are doing something rather than just memorizing chords. I'm on my 6th lesson and I only know 6 chords that I learned on my own. But my wife is an accomplished pianist, my kids plays piano, trombone and saxophone and my.wife and kids teachers says he is teaching the correct way. Anyone can remember a chord and strum strings but once you understand how the guitar works and what it means to move from string to string on different frets than you are way ahead if the game. I highly recommend Nikita.

I'm a dedicated teacher and spend extra time outside of lessons thinking about how to best approach the following lesson. I find the style of teaching that works best for the student. I write plans after lessons and email or give them in person summarizing the lesson's key points to help make practicing at home easier and more organized in order to make lesson time as effective overall as possible.

About Fedor
I'm a rising Junior at The Juilliard School. I started playing when five and a half. I attended the Juilliard Pre-College program for two last years of high school before attending Juilliard on the college level. In August of 2013, I became the youngest semi-finalist in the Schoenfeld International Professional competition in Hong Kong. I has given full program solo recitals since age 12 and performed publicly at prestigious venues including Carnegie Weill Recital Hall in NY, the Kennedy Center and the White House in Washington, DC.

I love teaching young musicians. I have taught students of different ages and levels and coached young violinists in preparation for youth and school orchestra auditions. I love the methodical approach to teaching, and I've built a system of individual plans and written follow-up assignments which I send to
my students to help them make better use of their practicing time.

Throughout my years of teaching, my students have won top positions in school and all state orchestras, won scholarships, numerous awards and gone on to professional careers.

My goal is to help each student enjoy music lessons, progress in their instrument and achieve their individual goals. I provide the beginning music to include traditional, suzuki, etudes and warm up exercises.

For the younger students, I provide Music Mind Games in all the lessons for added fun and enjoyment.

About Donna
After studying violin and piano in Boston, at New England Conservatory with Eric Rosenblith as well as Robert Soetens in France, I have been fortunate to enjoy nearly twenty years of teaching violin and piano students. I have earned a BS and MS degrees.

I believe all my students should enjoy music and lessons so students learn enjoyable music from the first few lessons.

For the younger students I use Music Mind Games training to enhance the lesson experience.

My professional violin experience includes performances with many orchestras including a ten-year member of the Chattanooga Symphony, Chattanooga Opera Orchestra, and the New Art Trio, Charleston Symphony, Savannah Symphony and chamber orchestras and ensembles in the Savannah, Chattanooga and Richmond areas. My experience also includes performances with Richmond Symphony in
Richmond, VA, Virginia Symphony in Norfolk, VA, Dover Delaware Symphony as well as performance venues in the Pennsylvania area.

I've studied classical violin since I was seven years old, and I love the way it helps me connect with people - both audiences and fellow musicians - on a higher level. Violin is a great creative outlet, and it's also a fantastic way to practice and see the fruit of discipline and hard work. I love performing, but it's a special joy to help students discover these same benefits of the study of music.
