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!

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!

I love teaching strings. Violin is my main instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

My daughter has resumed her violin playing now that she has lessons with Catherine. She had stopped for a year, and after a few lessons her tone started to sound just like it was when she left off. She improves with each virtual lesson, but most importantly she really enjoys them. I also appreciate that we can schedule lessons
at intervals other than weekly. Thank you, Catherine!

My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!"

"I’ve been working with Geronimo for three years. When I resumed my violin lessons in my late 20s after a long break, I was uncertain that I could improve my skills. However, Geronimo changed my perspective and made me confident. I am now way more confident in playing the violin.

I have worked with several violin teachers in the past, but he is the most talented and passionate one I have ever met. He can pinpoint areas that are lacking and provide helpful solutions to improve. I sincerely recommend him."

What’s the Difference Between Professional and Student Violins?

Getting the right instrument is one of the most important decisions in a musician's life. The right violin will feel comfortable in your hands, respond accurately and consistently to your touch, and help you produce the best possible sound for your level of musical development. Students learning the violin can rent or purchase instruments from music instrument retailers, and they offer a variety of instruments that can seem daunting for the novice violin purchaser.

Best Violin Songs to Practice by Genre: Rock, Pop, and Country

Love it or hate it, practice is a significant part of every musician’s life. This is especially true for those learning the violin, as there are many complex techniques and skills one must learn. As every musician can attest, finding the time and motivation to practice can be difficult, especially when you’re used to practicing the same songs over and over again. Rather than bore yourself to death, try switching up your practice plan by adding different genres of music--such as roc …
