About Mark
Hello all, my name is Mark P.

I have been playing Violin for 13yrs, studying with teachers
from many prestigious schools:  Mannes,
Juilliard, Curtis, St. Petersburg and Moscow Conservatory.  In high school, I participated in all of the
PMEA string festivals, making it all the way to All-Easterns Honors Ensemble.  I performed with the Philadelphia Youth
Orchestra from 2004-2007. 

I went to Mannes the NewSchool for Music for a year and a
half, studying with Ann Setzer.  Though I
did not find my passion in the Classic Conservatory, I transferred to Mansfield
University and made friends that have the same modern ambitions.  In Mansfield University, I still went through
a classical regime, but also studied jazz and contemporary with friends and on
my own.  Through this experience, I became
fantasized with the Ipad as a musical
instrument.  The Ipad made it very simple to learn theory
and to experiment with many sounds, which has helped me with all my
song-writing.

*** Lesson Details ***
From my experience with teaching students before and during
college, I enjoy seeing my student smiling and laughing.  It brings the warmest feelings to see any
student of mine enjoy playing music.  The
catch is once I notice my student not practicing within several lessons, even
through several approaches, then I discuss what is it that my student wants to
gain with her/his musical career/hobby. 
I believe every student has the drive to learn and do great things; it
is the student’s ambition and motivation to drive her/himself to be as
successful as she/he can be.

With my approach as a violinist, I center my attention
towards the bow (whether you are a righty or lefty) because it is the most
vital part of learning violin or any bowed instrument than that of any other
stringed instrument.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student should have a violin. If not, I know reputable makers in Philadelphia and NYC.
I also provide in lessons IPADS for theory purposes and songwriting; if the student has one, that is a big bonus.

*** Specialties ***
All genres and methods vary depending on the student.

Amazing Teacher!

Mark P. is an awesome teacher! He Loves what he does and it shows! I just started taking lessons (violin) and i couldn't be happier with the progress I've made so far. He is always optimistic and encouraging while teaching and makes it so i am able to comprehend everything. He would be a great benefit to anyone wanting to learn. There is no doubt in my mind that with Marks help ill be able to accomplish my dream of becoming a Great Violinist!

Students of all skill levels are welcome. I tailor the lesson type to the student rather than use a cookie-cutter approach.

About Nicholas
I am a second generation music teacher for piano and violin. I have been teaching for over 20 years as well as playing both instruments for about 30 years. I have an Associates in Music. Making lessons both fun and educational is what make my students successful in their instruments. My lessons are custom made to how the student learns, not cookie-cut. We also do bi-annual recitals in December and April to showcase the students' accomplishments.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are both fun and educational at the same time. I compromise with my students by having us each pick a piece to play on top of the usual learning pieces. My students play anything from Katy Perry to 80s music and rock ballads and in between. I use John Thompson and Fingerpower as well as a notespeller for piano and String Essentials for violin. Many of
my students can play with both hands after six months. We do recitals each year to showcase the past year's achievements in their pieces.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For either instrument I pick up all books and supplies ahead of the lesson. I have my own violin and music stand that I use to assist in teaching.

*** Specialties ***
John Thompson, Suzuki, popular music, Gospel, New Age, and anything in between

I have been teaching violin since 1998. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

I have 3 earned degrees from Pensacola Christian College (B.S. in Music Ed., 1992), Hobe Sound Bible College (A.A., 1993) and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Church Music, 1996). I have experience teaching all of the band instruments, violin, guitar, and piano. I'm an enthusiastic, upbeat person who greatly enjoys working with people of all ages. I presently employed at Hobe Sound Bible College and Christian Academy. I presently have 4 students in China and the Turks and Caicos Islands that I teach using Skype. Fortunately, I have a few openings
in my schedule to teach any one who is serious about excelling on his/her instrument. I look forward to helping you reach your potential.

I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods and traditional scales and etude books.

Susanna is a great teacher.

I have never played a violin before, and she is walking me through the process with patience, clear instructions, different interesting and fun ways of explaining concepts, which make lessons flow easily. By the time the lesson ends, I can hardly notice that an hour has passed by.

It is a joy to have her as a teacher. I have had a few questions off schedule, and she has never failed to answer them promptly.
I look forward to every lesson I have with her to keep learning to play this beautiful and amazing instrument.

I have been playing the violin for 15 years. I took lessons from a Doctorate in Violin at Brigham Young University. I learned many incredible things and want to share the beautiful instrument with those around me. My current students enjoy my teaching style and I am compassionate to those who struggle. Let me be your teacher!

About Rebekah
I love teaching! I am a music minor graduate from BYU. I grew up playing the cello, violin, and piano. I took lessons with those instruments as well as voice lessons during my college years. I also participated in the BYU Women's Chorus. I taught piano as a student piano teacher in high school, but had other jobs during college. If I calculate all the experience I have in various musical instruments, that experience would equal 45 years. During lessons, I allow my students to be "Teacher" for a day to understand their retention. They have so much fun with that! I also give out candy during the lesson and I have a point system to at which they will be rewarded with a prize. I am a proud member of the American Fork Symphony.

Laramie, WY
View Full Profile

I believe in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere between teacher and student that promotes the optimal mindset for the student to progress, and to believe in themself.

Technique-wise, there will be lots of work on intonation, tone production, and accuracy of rhythms!

Musically, I like to ask the student for their own ideas, and offer my input afterwards. Music is an expressive art, and the teacher's job is to help the student best express themselves.

About Josiah
I am currently a graduate student (Master of Music in Violin Performance) at the University of Oklahoma, where I am on fellowship as a violinist in the resident graduate string quartet, the Crouse Quartet. I study with Professor Hal Grossman at OU.

Previously, I earned a Performer's Certificate at the University of Wyoming, where I served as concertmaster of the UW Symphony Orchestra and the UW Chamber Orchestra.

I have advanced to the national finals in the MTNA Young Artist solo competition twice, and been guest soloist with the Northwest College Symphony Orchestra. During my time in Wyoming, I performed in the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra and the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra as a fully contracted section violin, and in the Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra as an alternate violin.

For four years, I taught for the University of Wyom
ing String Project, where I served as a private violin and viola teacher to elementary, middle, and high school students in the Laramie, Wyoming school system. My students have won leadership positions in their school and string project orchestras, as well as the distinction of All-State Orchestra.
