Private Violin Teacher

Hello to each of you! My name is Corey, and I have been teaching for 31 years. My primary professional instrument is cello, but started on violin at the age of 7. As I progressed as a child I played violin in the school orchestra setting, and cello outside of the school systems. Like many of you I've been locked up in my home because of Covid19. What fun! Not really... but I have been enjoying teaching 24 of my current private students. Additionally, I have been teaching music at a Waldorf School in Portland Oregon for 22 years. My work at the school has decreased because of the crisis and now I've been moved to 1/2 time. I'm so excited to expand my teaching studio, and have the opportunity to meet you. I teach beginning and intermediate violin students. I studied violin at the Community Music Center in Portland, OR. My degree is BM in cello performance from Portland State University 1993, and I have studied (and/or had master classes) with Stephanie McDougal, Hamilton Cheifetz, Yo

About Corey

For over 30 years it’s been an honor to serve students learning to play a stringed instrument. Teaching is a passion for me. My primary instrument is cello, and secondary instruments are violin, and bass. I’ve been lucky to have studied cello with Hamilton Cheifetz, Stephanie McDougal, Yo Yo Ma, H

Corey has been an amazing teacher for both of my sons! His talent with the instruments, his ability to share facts and make it interesting, and his intuition about what is effective for teaching young kids make the experience really wonderful for our whole family. He has been flexible in scheduling lessons. He is kind and patient with the boys. They look forward to their lessons every week and that is a great victory even if daily practice is challenging. Both boys have shown great improvement in their skills!
Forrest
Corey is the single biggest reason I stuck with music and was eventually accepted to several notable music conservatories including the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University and Oberlin Conservatory. I began studying with Corey at the age of 9, and he made the entire learning process exciting and engaging. His enthusiasm for music is contagious for students at all levels, and his expertise in guiding his pupils through the extremely complex process of learning a stringed instrument is unparalleled. Corey brings decades of pedagogical and professional experience to each lesson, and is always eager to impart this wisdom on his students. I cannot recommend Corey enough, for students at any level he is the best teacher you will be able to find!
Jenny
Our daughter studied violin with Corey for six years. She loved learning from him. I think Corey has a wonderful ability to nurture the love of making music. His teaching style is kind and patient. And he makes it fun. I would highly recommend him!

Welcome to my violin and viola studio! I believe that every student can enjoy the process of studying an instrument, and can learn to play with ease and joy. As a result, I work to determine each student's learning style, look for ways to encourage individual ownership of learning, and adapt my approach to help meet each student’s needs and goals. I teach both Suzuki and traditional lessons, and draw from a variety of musical styles and approaches to help students develop a broad range of skills that include a strong technical foundation, ear training, sight-reading, ensemble playing, and musical self-expression. Through this approach, I hope to help students develop a lifelong love for music that will serve them in all future endeavors, musical or otherwise.

Emily is an excellent teacher. I have no knowledge of music at all and she has been very patient in teaching me the basics. I have done 5 lessons with her (one in person and 4 online) and she has been very helpful thoughout. She made sure to send me copies of the lessons and recommended books, so I could practice offline.

"Hi, Three of our children took violin lessons with Cara Arnold for 4-5 years. She was an amazing violin teacher. She understood how to tailor her lessons to each individual child and was adept at finding music pieces that were challenging but also fun for the kids to learn. She has an enthusiasm for violin that she shared with our children and was always encouraging to them- but was also able to toe the line or ask for more when needed. I highly recommend her as a violin teacher. She is thoroughly knowledgeable in her subject and has years of experience with all ages. She also completely enjoys her job and it shows."

"Johnathan is a teacher in the spirit of a Jedi master. I was looking for someone who could go deep into how to play an instrument properly without making it drudgery and that is exactly what I found. At the start, he asked what I wanted to get out of lessons and where I wanted to take playing the violin. Each lesson has been tailored to add another piece to that foundation.

He really keeps my 6 yr old daughter interested in playing and that is the master skill."
