I've been teaching violin privately and in groups for 7 years. My most recent teaching experience was volunteering in Haiti last summer, where I taught at three different summer camps. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to hold the instrument and as time goes on you'll be able to play simple to more advanced melodies. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Katie V.

Hello potential student! My name is Katie and I can't wait to meet you. I have been teaching violin lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students develop a passion for music and a stronger connection to the world around them. I graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2015 with a Masters of Music, and the University of Michigan in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music. I have experience teaching private and group lessons, from beginner to advanced. This past year I worked with New York City teaching organizations that included Harmony Program, Opus 118 Harlem School of Music and Ethical Culture Fieldston School. I am a bubbly, patient, open-minded person, and my teaching style is flexible, creative but methodical. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! :)

Katie was exceptionally patient and encouraging with my five year old daughter. She was a major asset in teaching my daughter the basics of violin - including proper stance and note formation. I could not recommend her enough.

Katie was a wonderful violin teacher for my son (four years old at the time). Katie knew how to make learning music and the violin fun through games and various activities. She was attentive and patient, kind and encouraging. She worked with us to allow him to participate in the annual recital--she played a simple, beautiful song while he plucked an open string. She is reliable, accessible, and caring. Couldn't ask for a better, more qualified, and dynamic teacher than Katie to facilitate a positive musical experience a young child.

I greatly enjoyed my violin lessons with Katie. She improved my violin technique, encouraged me to tackle challenging solo pieces, and helped me prepare for youth orchestra auditions. She also guided me in producing video recordings for my college applications. On top of that, she is extremely patient and cheerful. Katie is the best!

Katie is a fantastic teacher! She taught me for six months and introduced me to the violin (I had never played before meeting her). She was patient, diligent, and communicated effectively. I would highly recommend!
