Ali N.

Victorville, CA

Violin is one of the hardest instruments to learn. Its takes a lot of time, energy and hard work (like anything else). I have been playing for 14 years and I love it.

I am here to help you succeed and work at your own pace. Every student learns differently and some understand it faster than others. That is ok! I want you to play at your best and succeed.

Kan W.

Rancho Cucamonga, CA

violin is one of the most tricky instrument ever. When you listen to it, it is amazing, when you start to learn it, you feel horrible. you cannot wait to ask your children or yourself to quit ASAP. trust me, once you pass the pivotal point, you will love it, never feel tired of holding it, never feel crazy of its creepy sound!

*** Lesson Details ***
First, I need to talk to my students about their goals. Not only for the adult, teacher also need to know what kids want to know about music. They are interested in it sometimes, they just don't know. Second, I will let them know, interests is just the first step. If you want to learn, you have to pay! Pay your patient, and your endeavor. I will teach in some specific ways to motive students to approach the goals. for example: listen, singing, playing, reading is the process to make the students catch the goal faster without lost their interests! So involve more activities in the lessons is very important! Also, serious technique practice is necessary. As I mentioned before, not only interests, if you want to learn , you have to pay. Once you catch your goal, you will feel happy that the teacher has been pushed you for some boring finger exercise.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I do have a grand piano at home.For violin students, they should have their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki style, classical, contemporary, modern music

Anna K.

Irvine, CA

I want to provide students with the opportunity to do and achieve anything they desire with music and become well-rounded musicians. My goal is to enable students to make music independently and become self-sufficient learners. As a result, students can enjoy music for their own playing and/or choose to become professional musicians.

About Anna

I have over 20 years of experience in teaching viola and violin students of all ages and levels. And I have knowledge of Piano and Music Theory as well. I have been a member of MTAC (Music Teachers’ Association of California) since 2005, and I currently serve as string chair as well as second vice president of South Coast Branch - MTAC. I am also a member of SYMF (Southwestern Youth Music Festival), so I enter many talented students pursuing music into the CM (Certificate of Merit) test, violin or viola competitions and auditions every year.

as soloist, chamber and orchestral musician. Ms K. has served as a director of the Orange County Chamber Ensemble from 2003 to 2012, and has appeared as a soloist with numerous orchestras in Korea, Europe, Japan, and more recently in US. She has performed as a principal violist with Seoul National Symphony Orchestra, Orange County Chamber Ensemble, and Southern California Chamber Orchestra. She has also appeared as guest principal violist with Los Angeles Korean Philharmonic Orchestra and California Central Philharmonic Orchestra. In September of 2002, Anna performed for the Concert called “Synergy” with Los Angeles Philharmonic directed by Esa-Pekka Salonen. In addition to being an active performer, Ms K. has established herself as an educator. Since 1992, she has been teaching students, and has served for 7 years as the string instructor of Amateur Orchestra at Seoul Women’s University in Korea. Besides her teaching career, she has served as chair of “Contemporary Flare Festival” from 2010 to 2012 and the SWV (Strings/Winds/Voice) Competition from 2012 to 2015 in South Coast Branch, MTAC (Music Teachers’ Association of California).

Wanda P.

Irvine, CA

I've been teaching violin for over 30 years with a strong focus on foundational techniques and fundamentals. My teaching method combines the Suzuki method and other popular music methods to create a dynamic and engaging approach for the student. As part of the student's development, I include playing duets and other popular pieces to develop the student's ensemble work. As they advance, I expose them to a variety of different styles and time periods to further develop their skills.

About Wanda

I have been a violin teacher for over 30 years and am a member of the MTAC in California. I am a graduate from Manhattan School of Music and also have acted as an evaluator for Certificate of Merit exams.

Are You Making the Most of Your Violin Practice?
Gifted musicians don't appear from nowhere fully-formed and ready to take to the concert platform.  For every 45-minute concerto or 90-minute recital you hear, hours of hard work have gone into every note, every phrase, and even how the music is approached, learned, and memorized!
