Zhana G.

New York, NY

Each lesson will be taught in response to current needs of a student but the following are the parts that make up an entire lesson:
- Technique
- Theory
- Music
- Practice
All together are basic fundamentals.

My job as a teacher is to help you find a place for music in your daily life and to make a practice time more of an experimental discovery play, than boring work. Once you find a key, it opens up a whole new world of communication.

As a private violin instructor, I believe that education is impossible without student’s motivation and passion. Perhaps you have decided to become a professional musician or maybe you want to play for your own enjoyment... Whatever your goals are, I can lead you there! Let's make it happen together because it is never late to follow a dream!

I recommend younger children travel to me for the best learning experience.

About Zhana

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 experiences that I have acquired in my 30 years of being a musician in Europe and the United States.

Professional work experience:
- Park Avenue Chamber Orchestra - NY,NY
- Charlotte Symphony Orchestra - Florida
- Tbilisi State Symphony Orchestra - Georgia
- Tbilisi State Opera House Orchestra - Georgia
- Tbilisi State Sympho-Jazz Orchestra - Georgia
- Tbilisi State Pop - Jazz Ensemble - Georgia

Julie P.

Maplewood, NJ

I focus on the foundations of music theory, as well as healthy practice habits to help my students succeed in any musical setting. I can get you started on the violin, improve your current abilities, work on school orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.

I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique.

We're very happy with Julie's flute lessons. My daughter switched from France to the US and working with Julie has helped her in the change and in progressing with her flute skills. Julie is a very safe choice.

Yoon Jae L.

New York, NY

I teach beginner and intermediate violin students helping them develop their bow technique and intonation.

About Yoon Jae

I am a highly-skilled professional musician certified as a certified Steinway education partner with over 14 years of teaching experience. I offer lessons in classical piano, violin, viola, conducting, arranging/orchestration as well as private tutoring in ear training and theory.

My main instrument is piano and I specialize in teaching students who already play the instrument and wish to get a more in-depth experience with piano literature by learning new repertoire and developing their technique. I also teach adult beginners and young beginners whose parents have a dedicated commitment t
o having their children make music an integral part of their education. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently and developing critical listening skills. This encourages consistent improvement and whatever your personal piano goals and skill levels are, I will help you improve and enjoy playing the piano more. I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of your desire to play the piano better. In addition to piano, I teach beginner and intermediate violin and viola students.

I encourage all my students to perform once or twice a year but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level.

I am available and willing to travel to your home for an extra fee as long as public transportation is available.

We have been blessed to have retained the services of Dzhuneyt. His professionalism and talent that he exhibits are rivaled by very few people, let alone other instructors. Our daughters are currently being taught piano and violin and their rapid progression is a testament to his effective teaching methodologies. Certainly put a priority consideration on coveting lessons from Dzhuneyt if you are interested in piano and violin.

Ari F.

East Brunswick, NJ

Strings have always been a great love of mine--violin takes dedication of posture to be comfortable, and a comfortable sound is a beautiful one. It is important that you select a teacher who can really push you towards a beautiful tone and musical expression, as well as one who knows what they are doing regarding the fine details of technique.

About Ari

Hi! My name is Ari, I'm 20 years old and a junior at Kean University, studying Music Education. I am a 3.8 GPA student who has been studying cello since I was 8 and piano since I was 3. I have a permissive teaching style that is sensitive to developmental disability and mental illness, but also can be quite harrowing and strict if you have the desire to truly become a great musician.
My specialties are strings, music theory, and piano. I'm very energetic and expect genuine effort from all my students. I try to make things fun, so I hope you try too!
