Private Violin Teacher

Hi! I'm Michael Shingo C. and I am a violinist, pianist, and composer.

In my teaching, I emphasize efficient, goal-oriented practice, and provide a strong technical foundation while always keeping musicality and expression in mind. I encourage my students to develop problem-solving skills that will ultimately allow them to create their own interpretations about a piece of music. I believe that each student has a different learning style and, with this knowledge, I design a program of study specifically for them.

Learning music is all about tackling technical or musical problems in many different ways until we find an approach that works for you. As multi-instrumentalist who also writes music, I can offer many different perspectives on a single issue and draw from a wide range of knowledge that serves me in my daily creative pursuits. ~

About Michael

Hello I'm Michael! I am a violinist and composer with a diverse skill set and 17 years of experience. I learn and grow as I pass on my knowledge and constantly find ways to better serve my students and help them achieve their goals.

I have been a student of Michael’s for approximately 7 months. My only previous experience with violin had been one year in elementary school band class and 8 months with a private teacher. When my private teacher’s lesson schedule changed, I was introduced to Michael and was greatly impressed by his skill level and teaching style. I have learned so much more than I had expected in each lesson, like how to self-tune, use a metronome, shift, and various other techniques. Michael constantly offers feedback on how I can execute techniques better, and I feel that this helps me to learn more effectively. He is always challenging me by giving me harder pieces and scales. I have even been told by my high school orchestra conductor that I have improved so much and she is constantly surprised by how fast I am learning. I highly recommend having Michael as a teacher for anyone looking to learn how to play the violin.

Michael is very talented and he is a great instructor. He explains the techniques really well. Very professional and supportive. I highly recommend him!

Mr. Mazzamuto is an excellent violin instructor. He is patient, engaging, and very creative. He is giving my young child lessons, and while the little guy loves the violin he is also has the attention span of a 4 year old. Mr.Mazzamuto keeps the lesson fun and is constantly teaching him new techniques and songs which keeps him interested in continued learning. We all have been very happy.

Maestro Mazzamuto has been giving my 4 year old son lessons for 2 months now. It has been a wonderful experience for both of us from the beginning. Not all violinist as talented as Maestro have the patience for true beginners and little kids. He has been so kind, patient, and creative when teaching my son. In two months he has taught my 4 year old several songs as well as how to read music. I’ve been amazed at what my little guy has been able to learn and how much enthusiasm he continues to have. He asks every day if Maestro is coming. He looks forward to seeing him and playing duets with him. Maestro Mazzamuto is helping to foster his love of music by making sure to teach at his pace and never getting frustrated with him. I hope that they will be making music together for a long time. I can’t imagine a better teacher for my son.
David
Very clear and passionate about the instruction he teaches! Lorenzo has won many musical competitions and is not only an exceptional violinist but also a great teacher. Taking lessons from Lorenzo has helped me be able to get in Brevards music festival program in 2019 and also make it to the semifinals in their solo competition. I would also like to add that with Lorenzo’s help I also was able make it to the finals at my universities solo competition later that year. Lorenzo is great at teaching bow technique and left hand finger technique but he is also amazing at teaching the heart and soul of the music!

"My newbie (beginner with zero experience) son has been taking violin lessons via skype for almost 2 years now. I specifically was looking for a teacher who could meet us over the internet, considering I needed a break from the commute. Although I wasn't sure this could work, I gave it a shot...& I am SOOO glad I did! I love the flexibility for our lessons to be in the early morning before school, we could only do this online.

My son LOVES playing his violin! It's funny because he wanted to quit once or twice when he came upon new challenges, etc. Gail works patiently with him as he gains confidence, slowly but surely he has improved dramatically. She has customized his lessons perfectly to fit his needs which is what I was hoping for. Online accompaniment to his songs made it even more fun & we just started a fiddle book (my son's request) which he is enjoying enormously.

My son picks up his violin & plays on his own all the time, WOW! He sounds great, is learning good technique & theory, but most importantly he was given a chance to enjoy the learning process, to me this is priceless. You won't be disappointed with Gail, she is a GREAT teacher! So glad we found her!!!

Side note: In the beginning I was trying to figure out how to tune the violin for my son, & fingering.The snark tuner & the chinatera fingerboard sticker gave me some needed confidence that we could do this online."

"Lauren Thomas is an excellent musician with a tremendous amount of patience and a seemingly boundless supply of talents. As a fellow musician who has played professionally alongside Lauren, I have witnessed first hand her skilled mastery of both the flute and the violin -- as intuitive as she is technically proficient. Apart from her musical abilities, she's kind, fun and sensitive and would make for either a great beginner violin teacher or as an instructor for someone with intermediate skills looking to expand their abilities. Cannot recommend her highly enough! Whether you're seeking instruction in the flute or the violin, Lauren's the woman for the job."
