The violin showcases a player's talent more than any other instrument, some say. It's the hardest instrument of them all, others say. Whatever your goals, I am happy to play a role in your musical journey with this instrument. Follow a classical, traditional method of my own development that incorporates the most common repertoire sought after in festivals, auditions for orchestras, and auditions for colleges.

Lessons with me...

I'm passionate about music and its many benefits, both academically, emotionally, and physically. I love to share my joy with my students in a fun, collaborative way that is professional and enjoyable. The pace is determined by the goals of the student, and materials are tailor-made to suit your preferences. Classical instruction is essential for proper technique, but branching out to Celtic fiddle or movie soundtracks is a definite option!

I recommend weekly lessons, and a minimum daily practice plan is required. Younger students should do 30-minute lessons, but around 10-years old, I require 45-60 minute lessons. Serious students preferred.

At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

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.

My daughter has been playing the violin for over six years and has had three teachers before Nikita. Nikita is by far the best instructor she has had. The other teachers taught my daughter to play the violin. Nikita is teaching her to perform. He is interested in every aspect of her playing, from playing the correct notes, to correct finger positioning and most especially relaxing and enjoying what she is playing.
My daughter has only taken four lessons from Nikita, but she already sounds better, is more relaxed and can see a difference in herself. She is playing with more confidence than she's ever had.
Nikita is incredibly patient and is excellent with explaining what he wants and expects and is very encouraging. I only wish we had found him sooner!

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 23 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

Apart from teaching, as a professional musician performing in Southern California I am well versed both in classical violin and various fiddle styles ranging from bluegrass, Celtic and old-time to rock, pop and blues.

My daughter has been taking lessons from Josh for years, classical piano, and she is advancing faster than with previous instructors. He has constantly challenged her to become a greater performer and to play beyond her own limitations.

We have been very happy having Josh as her teacher and will continue to keep Josh as her teacher for as long as he is available.

I have been taking lessons from Josh for about 6 months now. Easily one of my favorite teachers I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. I feel like every lesson is progress being made to what I want to become as a musician. From theory to the improvisation scales he has taught me, he has worked on giving me exactly what I have asked for and applying it in terms I can understand. Would very highly recommend anyone that wants to learn music to learn from Joshua.

Students can expect a relaxed, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for learning. The violin can be an intimidating instrument- you will make a lot of unpleasant sounds before you start sounding great- and that's okay! I'll be there to guide you and help you reach your goals.

- Polishing up school orchestra repertoire
- Learning new material and scales

- Meet personal goals
- Learn new material and scales

Intermediate/Advanced:

- Learning material commensurate with experience
- Working together to reach individual goals
- Learning how to improvise

About Dayna
Hello!,

My classical training began at age 10, when I started to play the viola. From there, I was able to translate my musical skills to violin, guitar, piano, voice, composition, and songwriting.

Originally a biology major at SUNY Purchase College, I quickly became restless knowing that I was unable to focus on music enough. So, I switched it up, followed my passion, and began studying music theory and production. Since then, my life has been focused on teaching, performing, writing, and recording music- and I wouldn't have it any other way!
It's been quite a journey, and I can't wait to share all that I've learned along the way with you.

Whether you are just starting out, or are looking to further the knowledge you already have, I will meet you at where you are, and help you to achieve your personal goals.

Together we can work o
n technique, theory, improvisation, ear-training, songwriting, and more!

I am currently a student at Bryn Mawr College. I teach violin and viola lessons. I have played the violin and viola for 12 years and over the course of my 4 years of teaching, I have taught over 15 students on both violin and viola. I usually work with children or teenagers and I can teach someone who has never played an instrument before as well as intermediate players. I use a variety of books that teach theory, rhythm and playing songs so the student gains confidence in preparing and performing "performance ready" pieces.
At college, I am principal viola of the Bryn Mawr-Haverford Orchestra and I also am part of a chamber music group. In high school, I was in the Maryland All-State Orchestra for four years and was in the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra (MCYO), one of the most prestigious orchestras in Maryland, for four years.

Greetings! I'm a full-time private music tutor who has taught more than 22,000 lessons in the past 15 years! I teach beginner-advanced violin, viola, cello, guitar, and piano, I specialize in working with young beginners (ages 4+), I currently teach 50+ students each week, and I'm the Chief Curriculum Designer for a web-based music lesson service.

Exact Notes is a self-learning music notation system for kids. The site is a comprehensive resource for classrooms, private teachers, self-learners, and homeschoolers. It has everything you need to stay on track before, during, and between lessons. It features an easy-to-read notation that takes the hard work out of learning music, and is so easy that 4 year olds can learn songs on their own!

As the lead curriculum designer, my job is to make sure every student has a fun and successful experience! Every student who joins the website gets a free orientation from me, and a free first lesson. If you're nearby, this could be at my private ...

About Zach
Hello! I'm a full-time private music tutor who currently teaches over 50 lessons each week. In 2007, I began studying the education of historical child prodigies, like Mozart and Picasso, and the curriculums they used as children. At the same time, I was studying cognitive neuroscience, which informed my practice as a teacher. In 2009, I opened a set of fine arts studios for kids which was dedicated to teaching arts that improved the developing brain.

In 2015, I published an article on cognitive ergonomics on the practice of optimizing learning materials for ease and efficiency. In 2016, I filed a patent on a music notation system cognitively optimized for young beginners on piano and stringed instruments, especially violin, viola, cello, and guitar, and started a website designed for self-learning, kindergarten-to-college. As the lead
curriculum designer, my job is to make a modern music curriculum more successful at getting young beginners started loving to play music than any other in the world.

I'm currently beginning work on the foreign language song sets for German, Spanish, and French, as well as the Partner Song Series, which is based directly on a piano curriculum written by Bach for his students, and was used by both Mozart and Beethoven as children!

I've worked with many special needs learners, including ADD/ADHD, low IQ, Autism, Down Syndrome, and blind students. The nature of my curriculum, designed for very young learners, naturally accommodates older learners with special needs.
