I am not only passionate about violin but a people lover! I enjoy working with young ones and helping adults achieve their musical goal on their bucket list. My 10 years of violin experience has made me into the person I am today, and I can not imagine life without music. I want to teach my students the beauty of the violin and that it is a fun hobby. I have studied the violin with Manuel Diaz, Sylvia Whers, Tzu-yi Chen, Ruslan Apostolov, Tian Xu, Gina Moody, Lazslo Stan, James Palmer, Jon Carmack, and Boris Abromov. Studying with several teachers has made me learn through different perspectives which I can share with my students. I have been concertmaster for most of the orchestras I have played in and made a state-wide orchestra audition.

About Mariana L.

I started playing the violin at the age of 9 and have taken private lessons ever since. I joined the Youth Orchestra of Greater Columbus when I was 12 and moved up to the symphony orchestra at 15 years old. I was assistant concertmaster for Honor Orchestra in the first violin section my junior year. Senior year, I was concertmaster for Honor Orchestra and concertmaster for my school’s Large Group Performance Evaluation event. I made All- State Orchestra my senior year of high school and began teaching lessons that same year.

What are my lessons like?
It depends on the age and goals of the student. I have a different approach for teaching young students than I do for teaching adults. Generally, I will ask students to buy "The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner" by Janice Tucker Rhoda. I also emphasize practicing scale, so scales are normally the warmup at the beginning of the lesson, that is for students with some experience. I will adjust to the student's needs and teach in a way to best suit them.
