Private Violin Teacher

I've been teaching violin for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, community orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods, Barbara Barber books and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Today was our first lesson and my son ran into my room at the conclusion of his session with nothing but positive things to say about Miss Susanna. He said that she was personable and lightened the mood with jokes during the lesson. She provided him with new techniques and skills just in the first lesson that he found extremely beneficial. He said that she is the teacher that he has been longing for and he thanked me for finding her. We look forward to working with her and his continued progress.

Susanna is an amazing instructor who takes the time with her students to truly get an appreciation of the instrument they are learning. Susanna offers any student patience, understanding and a wealth of knowledge to gain confidence in playing. Highly recommend for any Violin, Viola, or Cello students.

I'm a great teacher for young children! I've played the violin for over 10 years and have taught professionally at a music school back home in NY. I've worked a ton with kids, from being a pre-school aid to baby-sitting special needs kids, so I am very good at keeping lessons fun and interactive. Even though I don't play professionally now, growing up with music and having orchestra class be a safe space to express myself was so impactful in shaping the adult I have become. The violin is an amazing instrument to learn and I hope I can spark enthusiasm in your child and inspire them to stay with it as they grow.

My daughter started taking lessons from Gail over 5 years ago. I can say it has been a wonderful experience for both of us. We are not a musical family, so when my daughter had an interest in violin I did not know how to proceed. Gail put my worries to rest and got my daughter up and running in no time. It is a beautiful journey. Gail makes the lessons fun and engaging. She encourages my daughter to practice, so I never have to. Gail finds different ways to encourage and direct my daughter. I was concerned when we started Skype lessons a few years ago. How would this work? Well it turned out even better than before. We can now have lessons during quarantine, on vacation and best of all, no driving! The transition was smooth and the lessons continue with the same structured fun that they had always been. I encourage to get your son or daughter started on the violin. It has been simply wonderful for my daughter.

I’ve had three lessons so far and I feel so supported by Gail. I’m an adult student and Gail is very patient with me and kind. I actually really enjoy going to my lessons! She has already taught me so many handy tricks that she learned from many years of experience. I’m brand new to the violin and Gail is excellent at helping me with my hand placement and I feel confident that what she’s teaching me is really setting me up for success and good habits with the violin.

Charles has been great with my early skill development. He continues every week to stress the basic for my violin training. He remains supportive and patient. We have had lessons in person and online. I am beginner at 65 years old and I would highly recommend Charles Bossert as a violin, and other strings instruments instructor. Thank You Charles for your help.

Music is awesome!! I teach all levels and all kinds of music: from Bach to Brahms, Pop songs, Rock and Roll, beginner to advanced and everywhere in between. I love teaching both classical and non classical music because all music is beautiful and can remind us of a favorite song or maybe even a fond memory. I teach how to learn music by ear and love the deeper connection that understanding all the notes of a piece can bring to a performance. I teach duets (of any level) for the purpose of practicing chamber music skills. I’ve taught students ages 5-19 for over 5 years and have a degree in Viola Performance and have been playing the violin and viola for 17 years.

"Mrs. Strange is a great teacher. She listens to her student when they are having trouble. She easily recognizes a students weaknesses and shows them how to build on them to make them a strength. This does not allow a student to start making mistakes which can easily become habits. You will learn to play your instrument properly and consistantly. Kind caring and compassionate I highly recommend her to anyone that really wants to learn to play."

But Anna understood my limitation and motivated me to see music in different way and now I love it. I have been taking classes with her now more than six months and hands down best Violin teacher. She is very patient, motivating, funny and most of all very talented and knows how to make music stick for non-musical people like me.
Thank you so much for introducing me to violin in a right way that now I like to play for playing."

5 Maintenance Tips for Violin Bows

All musical instruments require attention and maintenance. When it comes to the violin, however, it is easy to forget that the bow needs as much care as the instrument itself. After all, the way you treat your violin bows will affect the way the violin sounds. If too much resin builds up on the hairs, for example, the sound will come out wrong. While it may not be as costly to repair or replace violin bows, why waste money when it’s easy to keep your violin bows in good working condition? …
