I am offering violin lessons, both online and at students' places! Whether you have no music experience at all or have some violin experience, I can help you improve technique and musicality by working on exercises and various pieces of music. Not only do I draw from my experience studying music and taking private lessons since childhood, but I also tailor my lessons to meet each student’s individual learning style and interests.

About Grady L.

I am offering violin lessons and math tutoring, both online and at students' places in the SF Bay Area!

Recently graduated with a BA in applied mathematics and music from the University of California, Berkeley, I currently play violin in the UC Berkeley Symphony Orchestra and Baroque Ensemble. I also conduct and play in the UC Berkeley Chamber Orchestra and Summer Symphony. In high school, I joined the Peninsula Youth Orchestra, where I was a first violinist and later one of the assistant concertmasters.

As part of my applied math major, I took classes in calculus, linear algebra, and statistics, tutored incoming undergraduate students, and graded their homework. In the summer of 2014, I attended the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science (COSMOS) at UC Davis as part of the Mathematics Cluster. Throughout high school, I also tutored fellow students in pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus during lunchtime, after school, and during the summer.
