About Krisztina K.

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!

My 4-year old son and I have been taking violin lessons with Krisztina for a little over 6 months.
It's been a great experience for both of us. Krisztina is really adept at engaging him. She knows that little kids have short attention spans and makes her lessons fun. She can read him well and she is really good at incorporating characters and toys he likes into the lesson to keep it interesting for him.
It's been wonderful for me too to be able to learn the violin at the same time and for us to practice and play together., Krisztina is able to seamlessly teach and challenge both of us during the same session in spite of our age difference.
We started out with in-person lessons and switched to online classes as the pandemic set in. I'm grateful that we can continue despite the the social distancing mandate.

I am an adult learner, and have been learning violin with Krisztina for over 2 years now. She has been very patient and attentive during the lesson, from techniques to musicality of the piece. She makes me realize that learning violin is more than just technical training, but need to develop skills that able to express music. She also encouraged me to step out comfort zone and try things that I never dare to do before, like playing violin in central park with her. It's has been an great experience, and I am looking forward to learn more from her.

Ms. Krisztina started teaching my daughter when she was 5. She's a master of her craft (goes without saying) and the most patient and sweetest teacher ever. My daughter absolutely LOVES HER and looks forward to lessons in person and online. She engages her and inspires her and makes her wanna keep going. Thank you Ms. Krisztina for being so awesome!

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!

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.
