The Violin Studio of Andrea L. offers violin lessons for children, teens and adults, from beginners to advanced players. Lessons are conducted one-on-one in my private studio in the Spring Arts District of Philadelphia. I teach traditional, classical violin playing, and students can expect to gain not only a comprehensive understanding of violin technique, but also a thorough grasp of note-reading, musicality, tone production, rhythm, ear-training, theory and practice/learning techniques.

About Andrea

Music and the violin have always resonated strongly with me. After winning various competitions in my childhood years and traveling to China to perform as a teen, nothing seemed more natural than making a lifelong commitment to the violin. I moved to the culturally and musically-rich city of Boston

Private Violin Teacher

Through the lessons I help students on understanding the fundamentals of music theory, creating an ideal sound, musical expression and coordination.
Every student is different. I work with students individually and use different approaches for each one of them. Such as methods, repertoire and lesson skills.
But most important of all, I always make sure that my student does not loose interest and have fun making music!

About Yeseul

Graduate of Violin Performance Master degree at Yale University and String Pedagogy Master degree at Temple University, I love both teaching and playing. I'm one of the faculties at Symphony in C Youth Orchestra and St. Malachy School where I work with many different ages and levels of students

We completed 5 cello online lessons with Megan and it has been great! At first, I was not sure how online classes will work, but I should say that it has been very rewarding from the convenience of our home. My son has picked up quite a few techniques in the last few classes and I hear good improvement! Megan is very friendly and encouraging. I intend to continue with Megan.

"New experience

Elicia is an excellent instructor and was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. My daughter, who is 12, was nervous about the one on one sessions. She has only studied violin in a group setting, but Elicia really had a positive style and encouraged her throughout the lessons."

"At 40, violin is the first instrument I have ever learned, having taking lessons for seven months now with Autumn. Her clear instruction provides phenomenal motivation to intensely practice, and excel. I am humbled by her teaching of music theory in her lessons as well. Our orchestra group Autumn established has amazing synergy. As an engineer by trade, I have a deeper feeling of resonance and nature, through violin, thanks to Autumn."

"I started learning violin from Dr. Dimitry 1 month ago because, unlike other teachers, I found Dr. Dimitry very honest in specifying the subtleties and nuances, especially the snaggy ones which make the violin one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Although his classes were very expensive, I chose him as he was a straightforward and experienced violinist and I never compromise on the quality of teaching. Also, being a doctoral student myself, I know what it means to earn a Ph.D. and that too in music.

Now, it has been one month, and I enjoy his classes. His analogies and examples are an apt way of understanding the techniques of playing the violin. Though Dr. Dimitry is an advanced violinist, he is very patient with absolute beginners. To sum up, I would highly recommend him to people who are very serious and determined to learn and practice the violin."

"I am happy to leave a very positive review for Dan! I am an adult beginner, and when looking for a violin teacher, I wanted to find someone with professionalism, a good knowledge of the violin, and of course, patience. My grown children had a variety of violin and piano teachers while growing up and I wish I was able to find someone like Dan for them at the time. My two daughters had piano instruction with an intense, very experienced pianist at a prestigious music school. They learned excellent technique, but it was very stressful and only one continues to play as an adult for pleasure. I am so impressed with how Dan has concentrated on a strong foundation of proper violin technique in a patient, gentle manner. I highly recommend him for students of any age. I recommended him to my daughter for my granddaughter who is 6 years old. His studio would be far for my daughter to get to, but it would be well worth the commute!"
