Private Violin Teacher

I am a Broadway musician with 20 years of teaching experience. I know that each student learns differently so I use many different teaching methods and musical genres in lessons. I can help you get started on an instrument, improve your current abilities, work on school band and orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, prepare for college auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.

I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique.

Julie is an extremely talented musician and pianist with very effective teaching methods. She was able to adjust lessons to the level of instruction that was necessary to meet my child's goals.

Julie is patient, positive, and provides a wonderful learning environment!
Jessica
Julie is incredible! After several years of in-home lessons, she has proven to be the most personable, knowledgeable and efficient instructor my family has ever hired. Even the transition to on-line instruction has been smoother than I could have imagined. Such a great investment for all of us!

I have wanted to learn how to play piano since I was a child. During Covid and being quarantined, I figured I'd finally work toward achieving the goal. I am in my late 30s and had zero experience. I took 10 lessons with Julie and am thrilled with the progress I've made already. Throughout the whole experience, Julie has made me feel like I can reach my full potential and easily noticed when I practiced. Her praise and belief in me motivated me to keep trying. I could go on and on about how wonderful and caring Julie is! If you're looking for a piano instructor, look no further! You'd be lucky to be her student. I know I was. :)

I love teaching the violin! In my five years of teaching, I have taught all ages and all levels of experience. No matter what type of music you are trying to learn, it is important that you have a solid technical foundation in order to play whatever music speaks to your heart. In addition to teaching you the mechanics of violin playing, it is also important to me that you understand the "why"- why certain techniques work better than others.

Two years ago, I injured left arm and thought that I wouldn't be able to play the violin ever again. I basically had to re-teach myself the violin, and not take anything in my playing for granted. This radically changed not only my physical approach to playing the violin but also my mental approach. A mistake made while playing is not the end of the world, but is in fact an opportunity to learn and become even better.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing a student understand a concept that they've been struggling with, or play something that

Excellent instruction! I've been taking violin lessons with Mariana for already 3 years and couldn't be happier with my improvement! Highly knowledgeable, caring and patient. I appreciate her ability to fixing issues from the root instead of mending them, which has been fundamental not only to my advancement but also to the refinement of my teaching skills. Highly recommended!
Tati
Mariana will undoubtedly help you to get the best of your performance! I've been struggling with performance anxiety and stage freight for long time and finally decided to address it, reaching out to Mariana on several colleages recommendations. She helped me to overcome this matter by working on some essential triggers nobody before told me about! Finally I started enjoying my playing-the best reward I could possibly get! Even my sound got bigger and more secure.. I strongly recommend her!
Michael
Caring, passionate, right to the point instructor. You won't lose your time with Mariana! She explains the workings of every aspect of my playing, giving me several resources on how to improve them. This speeds up the whole process, as I know exactly on what I need to work on in my everyday practice!

When it comes to violin I use both book and audio. I want to help my students learn to not only read the music but to also hear and feel it. I have been teaching this way for the last few years and found that my students have a deeper understanding of the music by learning the see with their ears. Each student is tasked with coming up with goals that they want to reach, goals their parents would like for them to reach and from there a personalized path for learning is created and followed.

About April

I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music

I am eighteen and have been playing the violin for about six years. I used to not like playing all that much and got frustrated with practicing. I started lessons with Autumn about three years ago and now really like playing and practicing. I can now shift and am starting vibrato which is super cool.
