About Alisa
I began violin playing jazz/folk music with my dad and performing at different venues with him. I was always attracted to the variety of scales and sounds eastern music had to offer. I love the sound of a gypsy violin, how it can create such a strong sorrowful sound or how it can dance and sing.I am a violinist, singer and composer local to the greater Philadelphia area. I grew up improvising with my father in various settings; coffee shops, street corners and renaissance faires. As I grew up I began to appreciate classical music and the variety our history offers us. With the vast variety of repertoire and technical studies for violin, I became a dedicated classical violinist. I graduated with a degree in music and studied at conservatoire in Paris. After I left France I was inspired by the accessibility of a lot of music in Paris, and t
he acoustic relaxed sound I so often heard. I began to study jazz and return to my creative roots in music. Now I perform in jazz clubs, classical concert halls, recording studios as well as write and arrange for different productions and performances.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to teach. I have taught students from ages 8-42 and am open to teach anyone above 7 and above. We will start with the Suzuki method to get the basics of violin and will progress to play pieces of music varying to your tastes and level. If you want to play Irish fiddle, we can have you playing jigs and reels in just a few months. If your interested in jazz we can have you playing standards or if you want to a play classical we can work towards you being able to sight read and perform pieces within 6 months.

Of course if you already play we can pick up where you left off. I strongly believe no matter what interest you have in violin, it is important to study classically to get the proper technique. All styles I teach will be supplemented with classical etudes and exercises.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to own a violin and be willing to purchase necessary equipment. (music, metronome, tuner, shoulder rest, etc... varies on student)

*** Specialties ***
Classical
Jazz

I’m an adult viola student which is kind of different for me. I started playing again after a couple years and I’m trying to learn ways to play with other musicians. Emily has been really good with helping me focus on what I want to learn. She is patient with me and also plays with me and makes me feel comfortable in my lesson. afterwards I feel good and positive and I want to play more! I suggest her for anyone trying to be creative and wants to improve on tempo, rythm, tone etc. she’s good.

Philadelphia, PA

The Violin Studio of Andrea Levine offers violin lessons for children, teens and adults, from beginners to advanced players. Lessons are conducted one-on-one in my private studio in the Spring Arts District of Philadelphia. I teach traditional, classical violin playing, and students can expect to gain not only a comprehensive understanding of violin technique, but also a thorough grasp of note-reading, musicality, tone production, rhythm, ear-training, theory and practice/learning techniques.

About Andrea
Music and the violin have always resonated strongly with me. After winning various competitions in my childhood years and traveling to China to perform as a teen, nothing seemed more natural than making a lifelong commitment to the violin. I moved to the culturally and musically-rich city of Boston, MA, to study violin performance for my undergraduate degree, and then I went on to complete a master’s degree with honors in Pittsburgh PA.

With 7 years of higher-education training, musical experiences, and the cultural influence of living in two big cities under my belt, I was ready to dive headfirst into a full-time professional career in music performance. Philadelphia, PA was the next stop for me and it didn’t take long to call this beautiful city home. Soon I was on stage—and under the stage in many cases!—with many of Philadelphia’s to
p professional orchestras and performing consistently with pop music artists like Josh Groban.

I have had the honor of working in varied professional settings and with inspiring musical colleagues around the world. These experiences have helped to transform me into a well-rounded musician who thrives on stage, in the pit, and behind a camera, who puts just as much passion into teaching Vivaldi to my students as into performing ACDC’s Back in Black to cheering crowds.

Along with performing and teaching, I also own an award-winning live musical entertainment company called Miss Musique, which provides live music for weddings, parties and other special events. And in my free time I enjoy doing yoga, checking out Philadelphia’s newest restaurants, and playing with my cat Mittens.
