I am a professional orchestral musician who was classically trained at the world's best music conservatories, and I love teaching music to students of all ability levels! I am currently a member in the Pittsburgh Symphony, but I have played regularly with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra, and I used to be a member of Chicago's Grant Park Orchestra and the Kansas City Symphony.

I graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and I also attended the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Music has always been a huge part of my life, ever since I started playing violin when I was 2 years old, and I would love to share the joy of playing music with you!

I’ve been taking online lessons from Connie for 6 months now and couldn’t be happier. She helped me develop a good foundation and has been so encouraging along the way! I love that she pays attention to detail and goes out of her way to write weekly lesson notes, make recordings for me, adds in music theory and is helping me towards my first exam. Connie’s passion for music and teaching is evident and I’m thankful I found her online!
Mona
My son has been taking lessons from Connie and we love having her as his teacher! She helps him with his confidence playing solo and also working through school orchestra music... he’s now one of the more advanced in his group! Connie focuses on the details to set up a good foundation and has been great helping him with some bad habits he devolved years ago. She has lots of experience with every age group and teaches all the way through very advanced level. Thankful she came recommended to us!

Teaching is one of my greatest joys! All ages are welcome to study with me. My calling is to work with all students' interests and goals, such as preparing for auditions or playing your favorite video game soundtrack. I'm happy to work on pieces or songs the student is passionate about! :)

Lessons will prioritize an understanding of the relationship between anatomy and sound. My students are taught how to hear an issue in their playing, diagnose the problem, and know exactly how to fix it physically. Creating a beautiful tone, a natural comfort with the instrument, eliminating pain or tension are all things we will work on.

“Talent” is a widely misunderstood concept. As a teacher, I don't believe talent is born. Talent is an artful skill. This skill is made through practice: concentrated sessions of mindful repetition, silent awareness, and craft. I believe anyone can learn an instrument with the right mindset and the right instruction.

My pedagogy teachers include Dr. ...

Hello! I've been teaching violin and piano for 10+ years to students of all ages. I love helping beginners learn about the fun world of music, and helping intermediate/advanced students hone their skills.

I have a minor in music from Brigham Young University and have played in many different orchestras. I was All State in orchestra for 4 years during high school, and was concertmaster of the Brigham Young Symphony Orchestra. I also played with the Bradley University orchestra in Peoria, IL.

I am very patient and pay close attention to see what works best for each individual student. I love to have students try music from different styles, and also teach basic music theory and ear training skills.

If a student desires, I also like to get them involved in group playing opportunities, and hold periodic performance recitals.

I offer in person or video lessons, whichever you prefer.

Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

He is the best not only with the music but also, he really cares about his students. So after knowing him for 20 years, I still play for him from time to time and ask for his advice.

"Mr. Nader is an excellent instructor who always puts his students first. He customizes his lessons in accordance to each individual and patiently works with them so that they may achieve their optimum potential.

More than just a passive teacher of the violin, Mr. Nader dedicates his time and energy as a full time instructor of violin, cello, and music theory. Furthermore, Mr. Nader exhibits a level of knowledge, intellect, understanding, and culture rarely seen in the world today. When one walks into his music room, one will be struck with awe at not only the amount of books in Mr. Nader's library collection, but also the wide variety of subjects ranging from Music, Music History, Biographies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many more. However, do not think that these books are just for display. Quite the contrary, one short conversation with Mr. Nader will show that he is well versed in all these subjects; a modern incarnation of the Renaissance polymath. Building off of his broad knowledge base, Mr. Nader not only teaches one how to play an instrument, he also teaches one how to cultivate oneself in Music and the culture from which it originates.

With a passion for Music and a yearn to pass on higher culture to the avid learner, Mr. Nader is the best instructor for all those who wish to learn Music along with its connection to the history, society, and culture from which it springs."
