Kensho W.

Philadelphia, PA

Having played the violin since the age of 2, it has become an extension of my body. I am comfortable teaching at any level, and believe that a strong foundation of technique needs to be tailored to each individual's physique and comfort. I will make sure we have a constant communication about your goals and how we can achieve them together. I have no doubt we'll be able to accomplish what you want on your violin!

About Kensho

Hello! I'm Kensho, a Biology major and Premed Violinist who found Conducting to be his passion shortly after finishing my degrees at Yale. Although I am now a full-time musician, my diverse and thorough background in math and science make me a versatile option at TakeLessons. As a violinist, I substitute for the Philadelphia Orchestra, and received a Masters in Music from the Yale School of Music. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Top Notch!

Kensho is an incredible teacher! I had no music experience before I started with him, and after only 6 lessons I've made more progress than I could have hoped!! He is helping me to become as well-rounded as possible!!

Learned so much in my lessons

It is a pleasure for me to recommend Akhmed Memdov. I have known Akhmed for almost a year first as a colleague then as my teacher and ended up as one of my close friends. For me I was not a norm student since I had has started from literally "Zero" level with knowing nothing about violin or music. Akhmed was a great teacher as in less than seven lessons I started playing open strings and acknowledging many music theories. From personal observation, I know that Akhmed is hard-working, highly intelligent, talented, and has a great attitude. I have never known Akhmed to disappoint me whenever I produced bad melody" were really awful; I couldn`t bear that myself". You will find him to be a joy to work with. I recommend Akhmed Memdov without reservation. Feel free to contact me if I can be helpful in providing you additional information.

Emma tailors the lesson to your needs. I'm a fast learner so Emma ramped up the difficulty of the lessons and assignments accordingly. She's also been in music for a very long time since she was a child.

Emma is such a great teacher! She knows so much about all types of music and really has shown me ways to strengthen my skills at the piano. She gave me the courage to play in front of an audience for the first time in 10 years!
