I have had a regular studio of violin and piano students in the Boston area since 2006. I began teaching in 2001 in Seattle, WA. I perform regularly as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player at the Longy School of Music, in the Freisinger Chamber Orchestra, the Dorchester Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Civic Symphony Orchestra. My primary focus in my teaching is to guide my students to becoming independent musicians, and to help them develop a thorough understanding of music. Lessons include learning about music theory, sight reading, performance skills and technique. I have a thorough understanding of pedagogy and a true passion for teaching students of all ages. Education: I've received both my Master's of Music degree with Emphasis in String Pedagogy and ...
I started playing music in the fourth grade. My first instrument was the cello. In fifth grade I changed my instrument to the violin and found that it was definately something I wanted to persue. A year later I started on the piano, and unlike the violin, I found that it was easier to learn it on my own. Because of that, my knowledge on the piano has been mostly self taught. I have been playing both instruments going on 16 years, and even though I did play other instruments, nothing took center stage like the piano and violin. Although I have never played in the Boston Philharmonic or London Symphony Orchestra's, nor have written or composed any CD's, doesn't mean I don't have a passion for what I do. To me, music isn't just about playing in a large orchestra or being ...
I've been teaching violin for 3 years, mostly at the beginner level, but willing to work with any age/experience group. I specialize in the Suzuki Method, taking students as far as I can with this style of training before moving them on to more difficult works and techniques. I like to incorporate theory and sight-singing/ear training into lessons, as they are crucial skills in helping a student further his/her understanding of the instrument and music, as well as learning studies and etudes.
My name is Maeve L. I have been playing the violin since the age of 6 and I am now in my junior year of college. I attend Rhode Island College and study privately with Professor John Sumerlin. Before Professor Sumerlin, I studied under Daniela Gongora, Elizabeth Faidley, Charles Sherba and David Rubenstein and I am a graduate of the Suzuki Method, therefore, I prefer to teach by this method. I began teaching in my freshman year of college, mostly younger students (elementary age). I am able to provide private lessons from my home studio, from the college, or travel to the student's home.
I was introduced to music and instruments at a young age. Began playing the violin at age 5 and fell in love with the it. Being a musician, as I have come to know, is a great tool for the mind and soul. I have been teaching violin for a number of years (since Spring 2010) and all of my experiences have been positive and rewarding, especially for my students.
Additional info: I always had my own private teacher growing up; I auditioned and was selected into the BYSO program for 5 years; I have a total of 300 hours of teaching experience at a music school.

Music is my passion! I began playing violin at the age of eight and have played ever since. Classical music is my favorite and I enjoy both teaching and performing music. I am capable to teach you the technics and skills that you need. I typically use the Suzuki and Strictly Strings books for beginner students, and I will then advance to etude studies such as Sevick and Wolfarht in addition to the Suzuki sequels for my intermediate students. As my violin teacher always said, "You can do all things if you work hard enough." So, you can accomplish great things in violin if you not only work hard but also smart. Therefore, let's explore this incredible instrument together. And I also provide music theory and sight-singing/ear training classes. And that said, I look forward to meeting you!
Classically trained professional violinist. I have been playing violin since eight years old. I hold a BA in music with a violin emphasis at Lee University in Cleveland, TN. This degree has sharpened my instrumental skills by giving me a furnished background and understanding of the musical realm. I have been playing and studying music for about twenty years. I have been able to teach music to several schools to a diverse group of young and adult students. My teaching experience also includes performing with students in front of large audiences several times per year. And therefore, I am able to provide well-rounded skill sets and technics as a violin music teacher. I was born and raised in Haiti. I have performed in many Symphony Orchestras. My last Orchestra experience was with ...
