    Customized private violin instruction from a teacher of over 20 years

    I welcome students of all ages and abilities. My approach is to look at each student as an individual and tailor my teaching to their skill level, practice time, and personal goals. Students may work from more traditional, Classical-focused method books (such as Suzuki and String Builder), or from amongst various modern musical styles if they prefer. I also create custom arrangements of pop, rock, and other songs by request. Regardless of materials used, lessons will incorporate skills training, music theory, and musicianship. Students working towards an audition or performance will receive coaching on stage presence, performance etiquette, and other skills that will help propel them into the world of professional music. I am also available to coach chamber groups and prepare students for the ABRSM exams.

    About Cliff B.

    5.0
    (4)
    I am a violinist and private violin instructor with over 20 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's in violin performance from the Eastman School of Music, where I studied with Ilya Kaler and Mitchell Stern. I have performed in a wide variety of ensembles alongside such artists as Mitch Miller, McCoy Tyner, John Williams, Frederica von Stade, Joshua Bell, Mark O'Connor, Karen Gomyo, Beri Weber, Tim Janis, and many others. Currently, I am a member of both the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra in Harrisburg, PA, and KolPlay Orchestra, a NYC-based Jewish wedding band. I truly love sharing my musical experience through teaching. Since 2001, I have maintained a private studio of at least 8 and as many as 30 violin students of all ages, abilities, and levels of interest. In addition, I have taught music theory and performance classes, and worked as an ensemble and chamber music coach. I believe strongly that music is meant for everyone, and whether my students are preparing a college audition or learning their favorite songs for fun, I treat each one with the same enthusiasm and individual attention.
