Learning to play the violin doesn't have to be a task. I believe conquering a musical instrument is as much about love as it is dedication. I wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support of my teachers throughout the years. With my teaching, I intend to instill great technical facility as well as a love and respect for the instrument. (Students must provide their own violin)

About Lucas B.

Hi, thank you for stopping by my profile! My name is Lucas Brown and I teach the violin!


Who Do I Teach?
Currently, I serve as Adjunct Violin Professor at Seminole State College as well as run a private studio of my own for students in and around the Orlando area and many online students from all over the country. I'm happy to teach students, young and old (it's never too late to start!). I have a wide range of people that I teach, whether it be younger students who need help with school orchestra music, intermediate or advanced students working on challenging technique or repertoire for auditions, or even people who have always wanted to learn for fun but have never had the time.

What Are Lessons Like?
Students can choose from 30-minute, 45-minute, or one-hour lessons. I recommend one lesson per week, though some students prefer bi-monthly lessons. I'm happy to work with you and whatever is possible in your schedule!

My lessons generally consist of technique work (we usually start our lesson with whatever scale we've been working on that week), followed by an etude and finally the repertoire, however this may vary depending on the student's goals for our lessons. For me, the most important thing about my lessons is that student is learning while having fun and is never afraid to ask questions.

I usually use a bit of a hybrid teaching method, incorporating Suzuki, Essential Elements, and etude books (usually Wohlfahrt or Kreutzer). If the student has a specific request for a song or piece that they've always wanted to learn, I'm more than happy work that into the lessons!

A Little About Me:
I've been playing violin since I was 11 years old and currently hold two degrees. A Bachelor's degree from Florida State University and a Master's degree from DePaul University in Chicago - both are degrees in Violin Performance. I began violin in the public school system in Tallahassee, FL and eventually began taking lessons privately with an emphasis in the Suzuki Method.

These days I serve as 1st Violinist for the Classern String Quartet, as well as perform with the Space Coast Symphony. Please let me know if you have any questions! I'm happy to help with very serious students wanting to make a career in music as well as those who have always been interested in learning the violin for fun. I'm here to help you!

Second Hour (Leyra)
My lesson was super helpful! I feel that with Lucas' guidance my pieces have reached the next level of artistry and skill. I feel more than ready for my competitions this weekend.

This lesson was great! We went over my audition pieces in the form of a mock audition and then drilled everything afterward. I received excellent feedback from Lucas, and I know I will do my best in my audition. Thank you!

Lucas is a great teacher! I had an excellent lesson with him. He helped me prepare for an upcoming audition. Lucas is very attentive to detail and helped me take my pieces to the next level. I played Country Dance by C.M. Von Weber, and Concerto in a minor, 2nd mov. by Antonio Vivaldi, and I was able to greatly improve in just an hour!

Lucas is very nice and asked a lot of the right questions. He gave me some exercises to practice that will help my playing. I enjoyed the lesson, and think I will get a lot from it. Good start!

Lucas is an excellent instructor. He is very patient and detail oriented. He has a very pleasant personality and I never had problems coordinating schedule changes with him. My daughter looked forward to her classes and was motivated to practice on a daily basis. I highly recommend him!

Lucas is a wonderful teacher. He is polite, patient, friendly, very knowledgeable in violin techniques and intuitive to the student's need. I am very lucky to have him as a teacher and I am sure you will feel just as well if you have the opportunity of having him as a teacher. You will have fun while learning the violin.

Lucas was very professional and took time with my daughter and evaluate her experience level, so that he could begin her training.
Awesome.
