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!

We love Miss Krisztina! Very sweet, very talented and wonderful with my 6.5year old. Extremely patient. We highly recommend her!

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.
