Music has the power to uncover the beauty all around us. It can strengthen our bonds with other people. It can raise us out of low, lost places. It can be a filter that brightens our view of our daily lives. Learning an instrument or any discipline brings to the learner opportunities for growth and improvement. It also provides a space for self-reflection. Rarely in our daily lives are we encouraged to face ourselves- to meet head on with our strengths and weaknesses. Learning any instrument can help reveal these things to us and allow us to address them in a more objective way. We can build discipline, develop problem-solving skills, and find confidence. If learned with the right approach, the instrument can be an external indicator of our internal growth. In addition to all ...
I teach the Suzuki Method and focus on playing by ear to allow students to develop great technique, intonation and enjoyment of playing music. This method also builds a fantastic classical repertoire! We will later focus on music theory, sight reading and exploring any genre of music you're interested in after establishing a strong foundation.

I have been a freelance violinist and a professional violin teacher for the past 30 years. Playing in the orchestra and teaching students are two of my greatest passions in life. As a private violin instructor, I firmly believe that education is impossible without student motivation and passion. As much as I love teaching, my best experience is also learning from my students. Education - received in the Republic of Georgia (Eastern Europe) - Tbilisi State Music Academy - 7 year degree in Violin/Piano performance. - Tbilisi State College of Music and Arts - Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance. - Tbilisi State Music Conservatory - Master's Degree in Violin Performance. I am very fortunate to love teaching because it allows me to share my knowledge and incredible ...
I teach all levels of violin, with an equal emphasis on playing music and establishing technique. My focus for violin is agility and expression, so I encourage students to practice improvising and developing fast finger movement on the instrument.
In order to achieve results and fulfillment, please be prepared to practice your instrument at least two days per week outside of lessons.
Welcome! I am a full-time violin/viola teacher from New York and a registered member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I am an active performer of contemporary and classical music, and my commitment is to instill my students with both a passion for playing music and a strong technical foundation. My teaching method is tailored to each student's individual learning style and motivation for playing. The first question I will ask at every first lesson is: what music do you love? This can be one song - a nursery rhyme, classical melody, or popular song - or a genre of music. Regardless of age, I believe that the most effective path for learning violin or viola is to start with the music! For younger children, I suggest beginning with the Suzuki method in order to establish ...
I began violin at age 10, and began teaching violin in my first year of study at music school.
My training in violin and viola comes from distinguished performers in the classical music community. I have studied with Nicholas Cords (of Brooklyn Rider), Lawrence Dutton (of the Emerson String Quartet), Karen Ritscher, Brett Deubner, and Nancy Buck. My teachers have been taught by some of the most eminent string pedagogues of their generation, including Dorothy Delay, Karen Tuttle, Lilian Fuchs, Harvey Shapiro, and Heidi Castleman. This broad survey of teaching styles and philosophies gives me a great breadth of knowledge which I apply to all of my students.
Whether it be beginners, who are just learning the basics of sound production and proper posture, or advanced students, who are preparing for solo competitions or orchestral and chamber performances, my students will feel empowered and strengthened by their studies with me.
I hold the same approach for all my students at ...
Hi, my name is Sarah and I would love to teach you to become a better musician. I began teaching at the Nevada Blind Children's Foundation as a piano instructor in my senior year of high school. Since then, I have taught as a music teaching assistant at Stony Brook University and a violin, viola, and cello teacher at Music & Arts in Mount Sinai. I aim to teach my students more than just the basics. My students should expect to master: how to play their instrument most efficiently, body awareness, relaxed and proper posture, musicality and thoughtful phrasing, some aspects of music theory and ear training, stage presence, and more. Most importantly, I will help my students grow more confident in their musical abilities. My goal is to help nurture my students' musical talents and ...
