Ages 3 to 80

Teaching since:

I specialize in traditional and Suzuki violin methods, and offer violin and viola lessons to students of all ages and levels. Currently, I have a very diverse studio where my youngest student is 3 years old and the oldest, 58. Whether you are a beginner violin student learning how to hold an instrument, an advanced level player seeking for improvement, or violin enthusiast who wants to take lessons as a hobby, I can help you achieve your goal. ​And what can be better than one-on-one instruction when learning how to play an instrument?

My daughter has been taking violin lessons from Emil for 2 years now. He is a very knowledgeable violin teacher with many years of experience teaching children and adults. My daughter continues to progress and gain confidence. Emil makes learning fun!
