I began playing the violin in 3rd grade in my school general music class and instantly fell in love with it. I begged my mom for private lessons and after a year, she finally caved in. By my freshman year in high school, I had decided that I wanted to major in violin performance in college and make a career out of being a classical violinist. I went on to earn my Bachelor of Music in violin performance from State University of New York at Purchase. During my freshman year, I began teaching private violin and viola lessons at the Westport Music Center in Connecticut. I quickly realized that teaching is very fulfilling and that I loved sharing my passion and knowledge of the violin with others. While in undergrad, I also won my first job in a part time professional orchestra, the ...

I have been teaching the violin to children and adults for 8 years and teach methods that are appropriate to their level, whether they are beginners or have been playing for a while. I teach from the concept of Musicianship: including teaching correct techniques for playing, using theory books and violin method books that are creative and easy to follow. I teach note-reading as well as aural learning because a student needs both music notation and ear training to gain the best possible perspective on learning this instrument.
My husband and I have a violin shop where we rent, sell, service and restore violins and bows in North County, San Diego.

The violins we rent and sell are professionally set up by my husband who is a trained luthier. We also have all the necessary accessories you will need such as rosin, shoulder rests, tuners, various chin rests to ...
I love to teach the violin and fiddle. I really enjoy working with adult beginners to help them discover music. You are never too old to learn! My specialty is working with young children and youth to establish a wonderful foundation for the student. I work to incorporate, into the lessons, a strong sense of musicianship with both the violin and fiddle. I am a structured teacher, one that is helpful, friendly and fun to work with. In working with young children, I encourage the parent to be involved with the lessons...to partnership, so that the child will progress and have an enjoyable experience. I use a modern approach in selecting books for each student.. books that inspire and encourage the student at his/her skill level and age. I discuss the various books with the parent and ...
I provide students with original compositions, both solo pieces and duets, that teach the essential motor memory that is necessary to play in tune. Sound files of all of these pieces can be listened to and downloaded from a website.
I have studied the violin since I was six and have played for several decades in professional symphony orchestras, opera companies, and musicals. I've also attended many chamber music workshops and have played as a soloist at restaurants, weddings, and retirement communities. I began teaching violin in 1977. It's hard to play the violin in tune, and ten years ago I began to compose studies for my students that help them proactively to learn to play in tune. I call this approach The Pitchfixer Method, and it's based on principles of motor memory. I've used this approach with dozens of students with great results; it forms the core of the curriculum for the first several years. My current students include young children, teenagers, young adults, and mature adult beginners.
With one word "violin" there arises an image of an excellent and brilliant musician who puts his dreams up into voice of a human heart. Though practicing violin as well as viola takes alot of patience it is worth it!
Hi, My name is George. I am professional viola player and teacher graduated with MM from Sankt-Petersburg Conservatory and BM from Sankt-Petersburg College. In both I had studied viola, piano, music theory, harmony and polyphony (basically), had a large experience of teaching children and adults. I'm able to work with any level of students being very flexible and making study process exciting, useful and funny. During lessons I usually show by my self how to play in order to inspire my students and help them to reach their goals and aims. My professional achievement as a teacher is that all my students begin to fall in love with music very quickly and practice with pleasure, even those who were frustrated or pained by their previous experiences with other teachers and have stopped ...
I began playing at the age of seven, and continue to study and improve my technique. I am very passionate about sharing musical education with others, and understand that every student learns at their own pace. By combining Suzuki and Traditional methods, I tailor every lesson to each student's needs.
I began playing violin 18 years ago and love sharing musical education with others. I continue to study privately and currently perform with a college symphony orchestra.
