Private Violin Teacher

Experienced teacher of 5 years, I have taught strings in the schools as well as in my private studio. I specialize in working with beginners and intermediate students grades 5-12, but adults are welcome too! We use a body-oriented approach to help students play the violin with ease and clarity. This approach includes a mix of Alexander Technique, body mapping, Suzuki pedagogy, Karen Tuttle Coordination, and my somatic movement education curriculum. However, we also equally rely on ear training. Whether you're reading notes for the first time or playing by ear, we do ear training. Through this method, you become more comfortable playing the violin, and with dedication, you learn how to become your own teacher. Ready to get started?

An Ya is an amazing musician. She doesn't only teach people like me how to sing. She's out there in the real world... playing her viola and singing in front of crowds throughout the region. In my experience with An Ya, she adapted my vocal lessons to work specifically on areas where I was struggling. She always seem to drill down to the real root of the vocal problem I was having and helped me improve. I wasn't able to stick with lessons as long as I had hoped, due to conflicts with my work schedule. However, I came away from my time with An Ya with better control over my diaphragm and a stronger "head" voice. Thanks to An Ya, I'm a better singer than I was before.

Private Violin Teacher

I am an experienced violinist and violist and music educator, who loves working with adult beginners. I have been teaching for over 20 years, and performing professionally for over 30 years. Are you an adult who has always wanted to play the violin but was never able to? Were you told you were too old or that it was too late? Maybe you want to revisit the instrument you gave up as a youngster. I can help you get back on track. I can give you the skills and confidence you will need to accomplish your goals. It's never too late!

I am also gifted in strengthening the skills of those who have already had some experience playing violin and/or viola, but would like to improve, no matter your age. I can help young students prepare for all state and all county competitions. My lessons are laid back, personable, and enjoyable.

About Kimberly

Kimberly is patient!! Gives clear instruction which immediately improves my playing. I am so happy with my choice of instructor!
Kent Looney
Kimberly Simkins has been a wonderful instructor for my daughter, as she works to improve her Viola playing. She is very interactive with my daughter and provides good feedback for my daughter's Viola playing.

I have been happy with this instruction and I hope others have a chance to see how personable and skilled she is.

Mrs. Simpkins is a great teacher and instructor and knows exactly how to make great players. I have Dyslexia and signed up for lessons after playing for a few years. Mrs. Simpkins knows exactly how to teach me and has shaped me into a great player. If you are wanting to learn to play Violin or Viola, or want to improve she is the teacher to go to. She is through, and has a great ability to shape amazing players. She got me into senior clinic and in the last concert I was placed 3rd chair mainly because of her instruction. I hope to continue lessons with her for the next year until I graduate. Although she has not been my teacher for all 9 years I have been playing, she has been my teacher for the past 4 years and I have loved having her teach me during every lesson. Having Mrs. Simpkins as your teacher, will make your playing improve significantly. I highly recommend her to everyone!

Private Violin Teacher

If I were to say 15 years on the violin, that would be a shocking time. I did earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Music where I received most of my education in both violin and piano. In my perspective, the violin is such an intricate instrument and I am blessed to work with students in wanting to learn violin. It’s true where putting the hard work in violin takes you where you need to be. It does require Practice! I am willing to work with the student and help them grow in advancing this instrument. Let’s keep in touch!

We had the privilege of having Ms. Angelica as my 10 year old's piano and violin teacher. She was patient, funny and an excellent music teacher. She knew exactly what to do to keep my daughter interested and engaged. My daughter looked forward to every session she had with her.

I have played the violin since 7th grade- about 9 years ago. The violin is a very soothing and elegant instrument that can make beautiful sounds and can also wake up someone’s attention. I have played in FiestaVal in Tennessee and I did orchestra for two years in middle school. Currently going to college for vocal performance and orchestral performance. I would like to teach those who are interested all that I know about this great instrument, whether it be a beginner, or a returning violin student.

About Oresmary

I have been teaching violin for 15 years. I specialize in beginning to intermediate students and all ages are welcome. I have always said that one is never too old to learn music. Everyone can experience the joy that music brings. In lessons with me you will develop a foundation in note reading, music theory, technique and much more. In no time at all you will be able to play songs and read music as if it was a book. So excited to get started on this music journey with you.

"Jill accompanies our choir frequently, and you can hear the congregation respond as she comes in because the sensitivity she shows through her playing makes any piece of music richer and more meaningful. She's also good listener, creative in responding clearly to questions, and always fun to be with. She would surely be my first choice as a teacher."
