Violin is a complex art, one that takes many years to develop, but can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your life. Despite its challenges, love for the violin and music should never take a back seat in a lesson, That is what I will focus on. Nevertheless, there are methods and techniques crucial to violin playing that I will also keep at the forefront. At the end of the day, students have their own unique voice that I will try to nurture while at the same time teach them the fundamental tools to achieve it. Whether just starting out or already playing for many years, I will strive to do what is best for the student. To all of you, I wish you best of luck with violin and hope you can join me in making music!

About Mark T.

Hello! I am a graduate of Eastman School of Music with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance. I have experience teaching students of all ages, as well as coaching student chamber music. I enjoy all types of music and transcribe music as a hobby. I also play for weddings, concerts in nursing homes, and volunteered at student music camps. I love to help students with any problems they have, and look forward to hearing from you!

My 7-year-old son has really been enjoying his weekly violin lessons with Mark! My son is completely new to the instrument, and Mark has been doing a great job of explaining how to hold the violin and how to play the music, which is no small feat over a computer screen. I was fairly involved during the first few lessons since I wanted to be able to help my son practice between lessons, but now that he has taken several weeks of lessons with Mark I don't have to sit next to him the whole time. I highly recommend Mark!

My daughter was nearly beginner. Tough to teach/learn on line at this stage. However, Mark was great. He listened to our requests and my daughter improved a lot! Thanks Mark!

Mark is good, patient teacher. My son has learning disability, yet Mark has a way to keep my son engaged and learning something new from lesson to lesson. I've seen steady improvement in my son violin's play, and I appreciate Mark's work.
