Violin Lessons in Tampa Bay

By Amanda R. - Tampa Violin Teacher

One of the reasons I chose to attend school in Tampa is because of the musical community here. The University of South Florida offers incredible performances by faculty like Carolyn Stuart, Associate Professor of Violin as well as dozens of performances each semester by violin students. Whether it is a performance by the esteemed Presidents Trio, a solo recital or an orchestra concert, there is always an amazing violin performance to be found at USF.

Additionally, the Florida Orchestra is a big part of the musical scene in Tampa. Between the Masterworks, Coffee Concert, and Pops series there is always a chance to see professional violinists at work with The Florida Orchestra. This season featured concertmaster Jeffrey Multer performing the dazzling Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto. Later this season they will be performing the Brahms Violin Concerto with violinist Augustin Hadelich and the principal second violinist from The Florida Orchestra will be performing Thomas Ades’ Violin Concerto. The ability to see The Florida Orchestra perform in three beautiful halls in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater makes concert-going an experience the greater Tampa Bay area can fully enjoy.

The Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra is a wonderful asset to young musicians taking violin lessons in Tampa Bay. Four orchestras with talented conductors help to foster young musicians from beginners to advanced levels of musicianship. The ability to work with student colleagues on wonderful orchestral repertoire is one of the many amazing educational resources for young musicians. A Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra concert is a glowing example of the benefits of music education in our schools and communities.

I am fortunate to be a Tampa native. Being in Tampa has allowed me to grow as an artist and educator because of the wonderful and unique experiences Tampa has to offer. You can experience these opportunities for yourself by taking for violin lessons in Tampa.

Dan is a fantastic instructor! I am a 27 year old whom had never touched a violin in my life before Dan. Now I own a violin, practice every week, and can read basic music sheets. He is very knowledgeable, patient, funny, and flexible. If you're looking to learn a new instrument while having a good time, look no further my friend. What are you waiting for?

Need someone special to teach you...?

Having never even held a violin in my life, I was apprehensive about trying this, but Danut is not only an expert at playing the violin and has several different methods to teach different individuals, but is also flexible in conforming to what is best for each student. And, most importantly (for me) is that he is v-e-r-y patient. LOL I may never be a concert violinist, but I am achieving my goal of learning to play and don't think this would be happening with anyone else. Thank you Danut!

Hallie C.

Tampa, FL

If you would like to learn an instrument, one of the best to learn about music is the Violin. Also one of the easiest to learn on a basic level, but the most difficult to master. Having learned the violin from infancy with my mother being a professional violinist, I have had extensive training in teaching and playing the violin, and will help you to fulfill your potential.

About Hallie

Have you always wanted to learn how to play an instrument, but never knew where to begin? I can help you learn your instrument, and learn how to play the music that you love whether it be flute, piccolo, violin, viola, or cello. I can help you enjoy music.

Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old, and later joined the high school band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to t
ake this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excelled in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the Prague Film Orchestra. Even more recently I have been a teacher for the Flutes and Strings classes at Unison World School in Dehradun, India.

As you can see, having great international exposure to music I can teach you how to become more well-rounded in the beauty that is music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching varies with the age level of each student. With younger students, imitation is often one of the best methods of learning and I prefer the Suzuki method for students up to age 8, especially with strings. For older children and adults, learning music notation and basic music theory for a full understanding of musical language are more important to get them to the level where they can learn any music that they want to play for fun. For students who wish to excel in their school band, a more practical approach with technique specific warm-ups and exercises seems to be the best in general.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes music stands, sheet music, metronome, and seating for parents/students. No pets. Parking in lot.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide metronome, and tools for minor instrument repair. Students should provide their own music stands and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method, Taffanel et Gaubert, Patricia George

Hallie is friendly, enthusiastic and very encouraging, I look forward to each lesson because I know by the end I will feel great about what I achieve during that time.

I feel like my playing has progress so much further than when I was attempting to teach myself. As a shy adult beginner, Hallie's fantastic attitude makes is easier for me to learn as I don't feel as nervous as I normally would.
