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 firmly believe each student is a unique individual and needs a personalized and unique teaching approach......
Music is one of the greatest gifts to the humankind and because of this everyone should have the possibility to familiarize with a musical instrument.

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!

Emily was patient with me as a beginner. Her instructions were very detailed, easily understood and very helpful. Her pace was just right - not too slow, not too fast. She took the time to observe my technique and make corrections gently as needed. I would highly recommend Emily for online violin instruction to students of all ages.
Yitao
I’ve been learning with Emily for 4 years now and have seen major improvements with my playing. She is such a dedicated, hardworking teacher. I have gotten so many amazing opportunities working with her, such as joining youth orchestras, playing in recitals, concerts, etc. No matter your level, she always motivates you to do better. I wish I could learn with her forever :((

So far so good. Emily was extremely patient and my daughter said she liked it a lot.

I came to Mark with utterly no background in the violin, wanting to start as an adult learner, and I can't imagine a better teacher than Mark. Mark is helping me gain crucial fundamentals while also learning fun pieces to strengthen those elements and encouraging me to select pieces, too.
I also like that he incorporates some music theory into his lessons.
Finally, I feel like becoming a violinist now, as an adult, isn't as crazy as I worried it might be since I have Mark to teach me.
Anne
Mark is a talented musician and worked very well with my son to help improve and fine tune his viola performance just before he heads off to college. Emphasis was placed on technique and musicality. A great experience ! At one point Marked picked up his electric violin and played a beautiful duet with my son that was amazing!

Throughout my musical training, I have worked with distinguished performers and educators in the classical music community. I have studied with Lawrence Dutton (of the Emerson String Quartet), and Nicholas Cords (of Brooklyn Rider), Karen Ritscher (of Manhattan School of Music), and Nancy Buck (of Arizona State University). My teachers have been taught by some of the most eminent string pedagogues of their generation, including Dorothy Delay, Karen Tuttle, Lilian Fuchs, Harvey Shapiro, and Heidi Castleman. This broad survey of teaching styles and philosophies gives me a great breadth of knowledge which I apply to each student.

I have been teaching for over a decade in many settings. These include: my own private studio, TakeLessons, music stores, and performing arts studios.

Before earning my masters degree in performance, I was honored to be awarded a Teaching Assistantship for the viola studio of Professor Nancy Buck at Arizona State University. During my teaching ...

"Johnathan is a teacher in the spirit of a Jedi master. I was looking for someone who could go deep into how to play an instrument properly without making it drudgery and that is exactly what I found. At the start, he asked what I wanted to get out of lessons and where I wanted to take playing the violin. Each lesson has been tailored to add another piece to that foundation.

He really keeps my 6 yr old daughter interested in playing and that is the master skill."
