The first lesson was great. She explained some of the fiddle's background, how to hold it, and how to play it all in an interactive way. The time flew by. My daughter is very enthusiastic about the lessons & even more excited about the fiddle than before the lesson. Kathleen is awesome.

About Cameron
I give lessons from my house in north Houston and I sometimes go to students homes depending on location. I teach beginner through advanced violin. As a violin and viola teacher, my goal is to give my students fun and productive lessons. I teach my students all the essential technical and musical principles which help them to succeed at reaching their goals and avoid developing harmful habits along the way. I do not follow an exact method or course. My approach is to teach each student according to his/her particular needs which will usually require a combination of books or methods.

I have had the privilege of learning violin under some of the top violin teachers in the US. Many of my teachers were graduates of Juliard and other top music schools where they studied with some of the most famous violin teachers of the 20th century incl
uding Ivan Galamian and Josef Gingold. I have also studied with Texas String Teacher of the Year winner Henry Rubin.

Athol, MA
View Full Profile

I am a performer, recording artist and an experienced violin and fiddle teacher since 1995. I am capable of teaching all ages and levels up to advanced. My approach uses many decades of lessons and pedagogue with F.A.S.E. (Foundation of String Education), Suzuki and traditional European methods. What makes my teaching unique is a healthy infusion of improvisation and fiddling.

About Myra
Born and raised in Dorchester, Massachusetts, Ms. MacLeod has been immersed in music her entire life. At the age of five, she began her musical studies at the South End Music Center. In the 1970's, she began her performance career in the richly creative Cambridge-Boston folk scene. She has performed at weddings, festivals, regional coffee houses, contra dances, and local restaurants, as a solo musician as well as a member of groups such as "Blackstone Cúil," "Riverbend," "Frosty Morn," and "Patchwork."I bring a fusion of styles and techniques to my coaching.

I incorporate the most useful classical practices from traditional European, Suzuki, Bornoff method (Foundation for the Advancement of String Teaching), and guidelines from ASTA (American String Teachers Association) to give my students a solid base of correct posture, full tone,
and confidence with the instrument.

I am an adult beginner fiddle player. I appreciated Myra’s flexibility in scheduling allowing lessons to be most effective .Myra has a wonderful ability to assess and make recommendations to improve performance. Each lesson comes with a summary of topics covered and techniques to be practiced at home. Lessons were flexible and focused on the things I wanted to learn at the same time providing opportunities to stretch into other areas as well. Myra loves fiddle and her love of the instrument is contagious to all her students.

Los Angeles, CA

I have been playing violin since the age of 6. One day I had to make the difficult decision choosing between violin and piano, because both instruments are very dear to me. I chose violin as my primary instrument for its lyrical qualities and closeness to human voice. At the age of 13 I won the Saint Petersburg Violin Competition and performed with the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic.
I am excited to share my love for this instrument with my students no matter what age they are. I see each person as an individual who has their own artistic voice and I will help you to further develop it.
I have won Gartoff International Violin Competition, Freiburg International Violin Competition, Dalhousie Solo Competition, Halifax Rose Bowl, Roosevelt Violin Competition and most recently competed in Schoenfeld International String Competition in Harbin, China, where my quartet placed 3rd. Recently I performed the Brahms Violin Concerto in the Symphony Centre downtown Chicago with Roosevelt ...

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem and I'm 24 years old. I'm a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach my first language to others.
I am exci
ted to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher.

I have been playing violin for about 14 years now, and teaching for around 5 years. I teach a variety of styles of violin, from your base classical experience all the way out to celtic fiddle. There is a good balance of music theory mixed in to the lesson as well, enabling the student to not only play the music they're given, but also to understand it at a deeper level.

About Brandon

I've played violin for almost 15 years now, and have been teaching for 4 years or so. I have a set curriculum in place that has seen much success in achieving a well rounded player knowledgeable not only in playing, but also in the theory behind the playing.

I teach what you want to learn and at your pace! I also teach improv in case reading music isn't for you! I make sure no matter the age or skill level of my student, they are having fun, learning, and feeling proud of themselves. It's a team effort.

About Frances
Hi, I'm Frances! I have been playing viola since 1989 and teaching off and on since 1998! I started playing violin in 1996, and have been teaching it for almost just as long. I'm originally from Minnesota, but Texas heat is perfect for me. I teach all ages, special needs, and all skill levels. I have experience playing on worship teams for over 10 years. With that experience comes the ability to improvise. That being said, if reading music isn't right for you that's okay! That's what our ears are for! In my lessons, each student is taught more than just the instrument. I teach self discipline, self worth, how to be a team player, and perseverance. Music overall is my passion. It's a language that knows no boundaries, a language we can all speak. It breaks down walls, heals broken hearts, and brings us all together. It's our common ground

What A Blessing! Frances has been my daughter's private violin instructor for a couple years now. She comes weekly to our house for lessons ranging from 30 min-1 hr depending on the material that my daughter is needing to practice. Having studied Music in college, Frances offers a very well-rounded approach to her lessons, including both reading/playing music. Students are expected to practice daily and complete assigned tasks. She is a fantastic Encourager for students of all ages!

My daughter has just completed her 1st year with Frances Witherspoon. I am amazed at how much progress she has made. More importantly, I have witnessed how patiently she works with my daughter, who can be quite inquisitive, asking numerous questions during sessions. Also, my daughter has a tendency of declaring defeat when she encounters challenges, but Frances encouragingly reassures her that she can perform the piece and pushes hers to excel, while acknowledging her frustration. In each case where my daughter wanted to give up, she was playing portions of the tune successfully by the end of the lesson. Frances is great with kids and very talented also. My daughter looks forward to her viola lessons and her grades are great in her orchestra class. I don't typically fill out these reviews, but as a parent I want the right person working with my child, so I am paying it forward by letting other parents know that she is a great instructor. Superb student- centered service with a smile.
