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!

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!

I have been teaching for over a decade, from young and adult beginners, to undergraduate conservatory students and occasionally "lending and ear" to other professionals when they have a concert or audition coming up. My musical experience has lead me to different cities in North, South America, and Europe; as an orchestral, chamber music, soloist, and educator. Each concert, like each student I've worked with has taught me something valuable in return.

Teaching Philosophy: To teach is to instruct with care and to nurture. I believe that each pupil is an aspiring
artist and must be nurtured as such. They must be taught not only how to be a proficient musician, but how to live as an artist. This is my mission and my promise to each and every pupil I work with. I believe that each aspiring artist is unique and must be instructed in a personalized, disciplined, and inspiring way. As a performer, I wish to pass on my experience and help each pupil find their own unique “voice” as we walk

Hi!! When you study with me, I will tailor the lesson to fit your needs and YOUR goals. Method books may work awesome for some students, while others may prefer a more "by ear" approach. Whatever your music goals or needs may be, I will work with you to make sure they are achieved, planning your lesson around YOU. Questions during lessons are welcomed and encouraged. I do a recital during the summer also, because as an active performer, it is my firm belief that students learn faster and with more enthusiasm and interest when they have a specific goal to feel excited about.

As you're learning how to play the violin, the art of holding and placing your bow just right is important to master.

For many beginners, learning to control the bow so it doesn't bounce against the strings is the first step.
