Even though most of my students are children between the age of 6 and 18, I love teaching adults because we can build up meaningful relationships and have intriguing conversations through music! I am fully equipped to teach from absolute beginners to semi-professionals who had chosen a non-music career path. Let's work together to achieve your goal, and make beautiful music.
About Keiko T.

I served as a violinist of the Attacca Quartet, a NY-based string quartet that performs all over the world from 2005 to 2019. In addition to concertizing, I teach students of all levels wherever I go; I have given lessons, masterclasses and lectures in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Ireland, Australia, Japan, UAE... good thing we all speak the universal language of humanity: music. I grew up in Yokohama, Japan, but I decided that I was ready to explore the world when I was finishing up the 10th grade. I moved to New York to pursue a musical life and career. I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Violin Performance, as well as Artist Diploma in String Quartet Studies from The Juilliard School. I have been teaching students of all ages since 2005. Many of them were young children who simply enjoy playing the violin, but I have had several students win domestic and international competitions. I am also very fond of working with adults with or without experience- I usually end up being great friends with them. I often encourage my students to work on a solo repertoire of an appropriate level, as well as an ensemble piece that would help them develop their musicianship. I am very friendly and casual, but if you ask me to, I can be very tough (I was raised by a tiger mom.) If you are a beginner and need help with reading music in general, don't worry- I teach a course called "Ear Training" at Juilliard, so that can be a part of our lessons as well. I look forward to meeting you and making music together!

I have had the pleasure of learning from Keiko for the last several months--she is a wonderful teacher and provides helpful tips on improving my technique and skill level. While I've always been interested in picking up the violin, working with her has sparked an even greater interest and drive to do better. I am certain anyone will benefit from and enjoy taking classes with Keiko!

I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the violin but did not have the opportunity to learn when I was young. I started to teach myself how to play the violin about four years ago. At 26, I realized that I wanted to take private violin lessons in hopes how to play properly and improve my skills. Keiko is an absolutely wonderful instructor! She is very patient, friendly and flexible. We have been taking virtual lessons together for about a month now and I already notice a significant improvement when I play. I look forward to continuing to learn from her!
