Each lesson will be taught in response to current needs of a student but the following are the parts that make up an entire lesson: - Technique - Theory - Music - Practice All together are basic fundamentals. My job as a teacher is to help you find a place for music in your daily life and to make a practice time more of an experimental discovery play, than boring work. Once you find a key, it opens up a whole new world of communication. As a private violin instructor, I believe that education is impossible without student’s motivation and passion. Perhaps you have decided to become a professional musician or maybe you want to play for your own enjoyment... Whatever your goals are, I can lead you there! Let's make it happen together because it is never late to follow a dream! I recommend younger children travel to me for the best learning experience.

I have been a freelance violinist and a professional violin teacher for the past 30 years. Playing in the orchestra and teaching students are two of my greatest passions in life. As a private violin instructor, I firmly believe that education is impossible without student motivation and passion. As much as I love teaching, my best experience is also learning from my students. Education - received in the Republic of Georgia (Eastern Europe) - Tbilisi State Music Academy - 7 year degree in Violin/Piano performance. - Tbilisi State College of Music and Arts - Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance. - Tbilisi State Music Conservatory - Master's Degree in Violin Performance. I am very fortunate to love teaching because it allows me to share my knowledge and incredible experiences that I have acquired in my 30 years of being a musician in Europe and the United States.

For more than two years I have taken weekly online violin lessons from Zhana. I am not only delighted with the enjoyable experience of the lessons themselves but am also grateful for how Zhana has greatly enhanced my technical ability, freedom in playing and sense of musical accomplishment. I have taken in person lessons from several teachers over the span of many years and I can honestly say that none of these have advanced my abilities as efficiently and effectively as my online lessons with Zhana. I began lessons with Zhana because, even though I was taking regular in-person lessons at the time, I was frustrated struggling with making progress due to years of accumulated bad habits which had gone uncorrected by other instructors. These habits hindered my ability to play expressively, led me to procrastinate practicing and limited the range of music available to me. So, not knowing what to expect, I decided give online lessons a try as a supplement to my regular in person lessons. One difference with in person lessons is that, because of the slight but significant time lag involved in most internet connections, simultaneous accompaniment by the instructor isn’t often a very workable teaching option for on-line lessons Because of this limitation online lessons require, in my view, an experienced and focused instructor who has an ability to observe and communicate. Instructors with these qualifications may not be available in your local neighborhood but Zhana is just such a person. She has patiently and perceptively identified and corrected my accumulated bad habits, helped me develop my technical abilities beyond my expectations, provided me with a concrete approach to and enthusiasm for regular practice and guided me into a larger world of repertoir and musical expression. After two years of lessons from Zhana I consider myself indeed fortunate to have found a teacher who demonstrates such ability and enthusiasm for teaching, such genuine interest in and concern for me as a student, and such a kind and empathetic attitude towards me as a person. I encourage violinists, both those who are just beginning and would like to benefit from learning proper technique from the outset, (rather than have to painfully unlearn bad habits later on) and intermediate to advanced players, who would like to take advantage of the conservatory level instruction that she provides, to contact Zhana for a lesson.

Zhana is very attentive and a great teacher! I have already learned so much from 4 lessons and can't wait to continue.

Zhana has been a great teacher so far. I just finished week 3 and I can play twinkle, twinkle little star. She is really patience.
