Hi! My name is Chris. I am a violinist who has been playing since the 4th grade and teaching for over 10 years. I love music in all of its forms. Whether it's works of the great classical masters or plugging my electric violin into a new effects pedal, you can bet I'm loving every minute of it. But nothing is more rewarding to me than passing on that love of music to others!

I attended Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, where I studied music education under renowned conductor and violinist, Dr. Arthur Prano. Since that time, I've played in traditional classical symphonies, broadway musical pit ensembles, and even fronted an original music rock band named Hotel Hurry.

Book lessons with me today! I can't wait to get started!

*** Lesson Details ***
I can assist you with everything from picking up the instrument for the first time to improving upon what you already know. I believe every student should be approached in a unique way that works best with their personal style. I also believe that learning to play the violin doesn't have to be restricted to only classical music. Violins sound great in almost every genre of music, so why not use a great variety of music to learn with?

I employ methods from Suzuki and All For Strings in my lessons, in addition to other sources. I think what sets me apart from many other teachers is my flexibility. I understand that the same approach doesn't work equally for every student. Every student is different and learns differently. Adapting my teaching style to the student's unique needs is essential to their enjoyment and success!

Chris Robertson, Violinist

Since college, it has been my pleasure to help so many students pick up a violin for the first time or improve on what they already know. It would be an honor to teach you as well.

If you would like more information, have a question, or would just like to say hello, feel free to send me a question through the convenient TakeLessons interface.

Chris is awesome!

Chris provides really good feed back during every lesson. He lets me know what I need to work on and tips for improving and at the same time encourages me by telling me what I am doing well in. He also is very flexible and understanding. He was even kind enough to make sheet music for me for a piece of music that I really enjoy. Thanks Chris!

I have attended three lessons and so far I'm very happy. Chris is a kind gentleman, very helpful and patient. He provides clear instructions and looks for simple ways to explain techniques and related aspects. I'm looking forward to learn and practice as much as I can, counting on his support and guidelines.

Great Instructor, Highly Recommend

I have no background in music and am learning the violin as my first instrument. I picked Chris based on his profile and he is an swesome teacher. Everything I could possibly need in a teacher: clear explanations, constructive feedback, patience, flexibility, and a simple approach to teaching what I am appreciating is a very difficult instrument to master. Chris makes each lesson very fun and we laugh alot. He's sensitive to my trouble areas and encourages me to "stretch" to reach the challenge for the day. Imagine my pleasure when we were doing "duets" on lesson 2. I'm looking forwaard to a long, rewarding working relationship with Chris. 2 thumbs up!!
