· Banjo · In studio
I went into banjo lessons not knowing if I could master the instrument or not, being nearly 70 years old. While by no means a master (and never going to be), I have learned so much from Sam and he has shown such patience with me. I often leave my lessons wondering how he ever puts up with me - but he does. His encourgement, laid-back style, expertise and knowledge of music (plus theory) and the banjo is impressive. His good nature makes my lessons so much more pleasant. I would say Sam is a a great teacher for both a beginner or an accomplished musician or in between. He likes to talk and demonstrate (nice and slowly if requested) so I would recommend hour-long lessons at first.

Hendersonville, NC

I began privately instructing students while I was still in high school. Thirty years later, my studio teaching experience continues to instill a passion for music and students that are performing in their own venues in school and the community. Knowing that the time I have with each person is leading them to grow and share their own abilities with others is truly the heart of where I think musical instruction should lead.

About Kendra
My love of music and sharing that through one on one instruction has only increased over the course of my career. I began studying violin and viola during my primary education. With the tutelage of my wonderful private instructor, I was able to successfully audition and perform with various orchestral groups. This experience inspired me to continue my musical studies and performance at the University of Colorado and the University of Brandon (Canada). During the course of my professional career I have expanded my studies to other musical genres including blues, jazz, rock, folk, latin, and fiddle styles. This opened the door to freelance, record, and perform in various venues while maintaining a 'classical' career as well. Whether online or in person, I tailor the lesson for each of my students to be able to pursue their particular mu
sical interests while learning a solid classical approach to technique and theory.

It is a real challenge to find a right violin instructor for a beginner. My son went through few of them and I can see the difference. Nikita gives all the nutrients and sunlight to any tiny seed to grow. His violin teachers' talent can bet only his violinist' talent. He is very flexible and always ready in time. You can't even think of the better one.

I've recently returned to playing violin after a long break, and now taking online lessons with Nikita. He is super helpful, has already showed me a lot of efficient techniques which really speed up my re-gaining process. Nikita is very responsible, always comes up with ideas how to work on my tone, intonation, bowing specific to my needs. He is also a fantastic violinist, which is always the best inspiration for students!

At 60 plus I'm pretty set in my ways. But after 40 some years of not playing a violin I purchased a new one and found Nikita. He has worked with me trying to correct bad habits. Teaching proper handling, finger placement, notes, bow hold and care. Nikita works with children and the ELDERLY and everyone in between. His patience and passion for music is great. I highly recommend this person. He is not only a highly trained and gifted musician with many years of experience but also an excellent teacher. I value his skills and his friendship.

Students are given detailed instructions on how to practice and eventually how to create their own practice sessions. Julia is very patience and work with students of all ages. She believes that the biggest challenges for adult music students is not skipping lessons or practice sessions. She is convinced through experience that adult beginners can achieve great improvement if they put as much consistent efforts in the instruments as the younger students. So, practice more!

About Julia
Experienced violin teacher with Master degree in violin performance. Julia likes to play violin or piano with the students on a weekly basis to ensure the students get plenty of ensemble time before getting into orchestra. Her focus on techniques helps the students to be more expressive with the music. She is also Suzuki Certified and could use a combination of Suzuki method or traditional method. She teaches music theory and harmony to students who are interested in the subject and also introduce composition skills into lessons.

I am looking for students who are willing to have fun and play some of their favorite pieces, and students who want to be the best in their school or region. If that sounds like you, contact me today! I can't wait to work with you!

Dover, PA

Throughout my years of teaching, my students have won top positions in school and all state orchestras, won scholarships, numerous awards and gone on to professional careers.

My goal is to help each student enjoy music lessons, progress in their instrument and achieve their individual goals. I provide the beginning music to include traditional, suzuki, etudes and warm up exercises.

For the younger students, I provide Music Mind Games in all the lessons for added fun and enjoyment.

About Donna
After studying violin, (strings, cello), and piano in Boston, at New England Conservatory with Eric Rosenblith as well as Robert Soetens in France, I have been fortunate to enjoy nearly twenty years of teaching violin and piano students. I have earned a BS and MS degrees.

I believe all my students should enjoy music and lessons so students learn enjoyable music from the first few lessons.

For the younger students I use Music Mind Games training to enhance the lesson experience.

My professional violin experience includes performances with many orchestras including a ten-year member of the Chattanooga Symphony, Chattanooga Opera Orchestra, and the New Art Trio, Charleston Symphony, Savannah Symphony and chamber orchestras and ensembles in the Savannah, Chattanooga and Richmond areas. My experience also includes performances with R
ichmond Symphony in Richmond, VA, Virginia Symphony in Norfolk, VA, Dover Delaware Symphony as well as performance venues in the Pennsylvania area.

View Full Profile

Experienced teacher of 10 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate violin student! All ages and disabilities are welcome to take lessons. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I can teach all types of different genres, help students prepare for college auditions, and help with competitions and youth orchestra auditions. Let's get started!

About Tia
I started the violin when I was 8 years old at my hometown elementary school. I grew up in a very artsy town, which provided me the opportunities to learn music from around the world. These are a few reason why I love to collaborate with other musicians, create youtube videos, play different genres and mixes of various genres, writing my own pieces, traveling, and teaching others the love of music.

As I live in the Washington D.C. Metro area, scheduling/travel is flexible for me and easy to coordinate around my students' schedules. If there is a preferred lesson for your child not listed as "available" please feel free to inquire directly - we will find a time that works!

Violin students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every student learns uniquely; I teach students mindfulness and correct instrument techniques,
and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach beginner piano students of all different ages. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

My passion is music and I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style when learning an instrument. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
