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 t
hey 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.

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 take 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 ...

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.

Erika G. Saint Petersburg, FL

Experienced violin teacher of 14 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of music skills. I specialize in classical viola, violin, and piano and typically use either the Suzuki Method or traditional method (Faber, Alfred, Essential Elements), and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: Weighted electric keyboard (piano), my own viola/violin, music stands, metronomes, music manipulative, etc. Please note that string students must have their own instrument and all students are required to bring a notebook and procure their own sheet music.

About Erika

Erika is a multi-instrumentalist on a mission - to share the power of music with as many people as possible! Raised by an opera singer, Erika was exposed to classical music before birth; she knew how to read music before she could read words! From an early age, Erika knew that she was going to be a musician. At 10 years old, she began her study of piano; at 12, she taught herself viola and violin. Her career started at the age of 14 with a church pianist job and her very first private student. By 16, she was playing viola with the local symphony orchestra, accompanying collegiate vocalists, and teaching adults 20 years her senior. Before leaving for college, Erika had the very special honor of being one of eight pianists chosen state-wide to attend the Tennessee Governor's School for ...

I am an adult student and find Erika to be a very capable teacher. She is encouraging and easy going. She has helpful suggestions and willing to help me with all of my questions and choices of music and practice procedures. She always knows how to correct my mistakes while still encouraging me. She does not waste any of our time yet I think I may change my 30 minute lessons to 45 minutes to maybe an hour. She gives me written home work, which is good as I quickly forget things said during the lesson.

From the first time Erika came into our home to teach my 10 year old daughter, we all felt relaxed, comfortable and happy to have her here. My daughter adores the lessons! they go by so quickly and even though they cover a lot of ground and Erik is strict about the learning and getting it right, she is always so encouraging and supportive! I hear them laughing lots and my daughter is always happy and glowing after the lesson. she practices more readily and looks forward to her lesson every week!. So thank you Erika

Randall was fantastic. He immediately engaged with my son, and interspersed history and anecdotes into the lesson that made what he was saying even more relevant. Vlad is nine, and new to the violin. He couldn't wait to get home and practice, and is already looking forward to his next lesson.
