Hi, there! My name is Krisztina and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2010. I love helping my students to learn how to play the violin, to be able to play their favorite tunes or helping them preparing for auditions for schools and ensembles. I went to the Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary and earned my Masters Degree in Music in 2010. I'm a friendly and patient teacher and my teaching style engages student in the learning process also fun, and creative. I look forward helping you to reach your goals!

Ms.Krisztina is a joy to work with. My girls started with her at 5 & 6 and she worked so well with them. She has kept their interest since and has introduced new concepts in a way that isn’t overwhelming, but enjoyable and fun. She has a lot of patience with them and has a skill for drawing their attention to the violin & music.

Violin or viola, Krisztina was a very caring and nicest teacher I have ever had. Unlike myself she was always on time. Her friendliness made every lesson more fun while she really cared about her students and always been honest with her comments.

I would highly recommend Krisztina. She truly likes teaching violin. She goes beyond the call of duty. For example, she sends emails with her or other musician videos for practice at home, works over the allotted time if needed and if she is able to, sends texts and responds promptly.
My daughter was beginning to say she was getting less interested in violin and before I could say anything, Krisztina made my daughter excited about it again with new things to learn.
There is nothing negative to say. She is an excellent teacher.

Kristztina is my second teacher through Takelessons and by far the best. She is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and patient, and will help you lay a strong foundation in technique as well as develop your ear to play in tune. What I also enjoy is how she doesn't hesitate to help you learn the music you want to learn. Instead of using a set program of pieces you may not enjoy she really helps you play the things that will keep you practicing. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Krisztina in an exceptional instructor. She worked with my daughter for several months and her attitude, patience and attention were beyond compare. Rebecca always looked forward to her sessions with Krisztina and we look forward to many future lessons. She gave my daughter confidence, knowledge and expertise working with the violin that she will take with her through her musical experience.

Just finished our first violin lesson on-line and it was great! Krisztina's very nice and very patient! Already in one lesson I learned so much! Krisztina was able to explain technical concepts in a clear and simple way. She provided excellent examples and demonstrations on bow placement and finger/wrist relaxation (just to name a few things). It's really awesome to have a teacher with so much experience and musical ability. Also, she is kind and encouraging. I look forward to many more lessons!

Krisztina is terrific! Great teacher, super friendly, and is willing to help her students work toward their goals while focusing on the importance of developing good technique. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

I first met Krizstina playing a gig. I made a technical inquiry and her advice and suggestion(s) made an immediate difference; the rest is history. Krisztina is not only very knowledgeable and sensitive in her teaching, but she knows how to relate concepts so that the student grasps and understands. Since my time with Krizstina, my playing has made notable changes, not only to me, but to others as well (according to them). Krizstina is always prepared, pleasant, professional and open to suggestions.
