A violinist with a Bachelors Degree in Music Education and a Masters in Music, Anna F. uses a classical approach to teaching violin since that gives a foundation of excellence. Anna has taught both privately at home as well as in a private school setting. Anna began teaching around 2007 for a few years privately and then after a teaching break worked in a private school teaching private lessons, an intermediate orchestra, and monitoring a beginning strings video class with all four string instruments.

Patient, good humored, and knows her stuff. This was a brilliant first lesson and I am thrilled with the outcome, already on to a full song challenging me to do transitions and tempo. She is great at working with the student to find out where they need help and when they can go fast.Show More
Great first lesson
Anna has taught my daughter piano for several years and my son violin for one year. She is kind, engaging and challenging (in a good way) as an instructor. My daughter's proficiency has soared under her instruction.
Anna is a wonderful teacher. She’s extremely talented, patient, and both my girls love going to lesson. She has been teaching my children for 2 1/2 yrs.
Anna is a wonderful and thoughtful teacher. My daughter really enjoys her and I am thankful to have found Anna.
Anna is a wonderful instructor! She is very patient and easily catches all the things that my daughter needs to work on. She also has excellent communication skills in and outside the lesson. She responds to my questions quickly and efficiently. She is very professional and knowledgeable!Show More
Anna's such a wonderful instructor. Having had two teachers in the past, I feel she's very easily communicates with the student. Anna's also very sweet and patient and gives room for the student to grow, always showing how to improve rather than show what you're doing wrong. In just three lessons I already feel like I've considerably progressed in my goals of sight-reading and bowing technique. Thank you so much, Anna!Show More
My 12 year old daughter is really looking forward to her next lesson. She likes Anna's upbeat attitude and positive way of teaching. These lessons have been very helpful with music homework from school too. We really appreciate it. Thank you.
I am an international student living in the US, and teacher Anna is incredibly patient, nice, and fun to learn with. I have around 8 months being her student and even though I had cancelled multiple lessons due a variety of reasons, I am about to finish Suzuki 1 and I already started another book. Learning something new when you are in your late teens might be hard, but with her I have improved a lot and I feel happy with my skills. I think that she can adapt easily to any kind of student while still making them learn what she wants them to. Also whenever I have a question or need something, she will always answer within one day without having to wait until the next lesson, which makes learning a lot easier.Show More
We've been very happy with Anna, and the online lessons. We have struggled for a very ling time to find a teacher locally that we liked. We kept running across teachers the were to strict and sometimes just mean. We don't want our daughter to be a concert pianist, we just want her to learn the language of music, and love to play. With Anna we have found both of these things. She's very good about having a positive spin on everything, even when she is correcting something she wants our daughter to change. Our daughter is getting better every week, and she LOVES to play again. What more could you ask for?Show More
My first lesson went well, I can't wait until the next one!
She is very knowledgable, supportive, and has an upbeat teaching style!
We feel so very blessed to have found Anna. She is very talented and knowledgeable with the violin. Our children with ages ranging from 5-10, just love Anna. She is very patient and kind, yet challenges the children. Anna is very organized and always so professional. We would recommend Anna to anyone looking for a great violin teacher.Show More
