Private Violin Teacher

The violin is easily recognizable and very popular. Violin lessons include theory, technique, repertoire, and more. We'll work together to design a lesson plan that works for you and your learning style.

About Gail

I began my musical journey with a recorder at the age of 3, and grew from there. I tried out several instruments, including French horn and piano, before finding the violin, and later the viola.

In 2018, I moved with my family from California to Texas, and found even more of what I love: music! Fort Worth is a music-loving area, and I'm happy to be here.

I began teaching began by accident when my twins entered a TK program. Their teacher asked for help with music - how could I turn down that request? I successfully wrote and taught the music program that I used for K-2 grade students at that school, and now teach violin and viola to beginner through intermediate students, advanced for viola.

I specialize in working with younger children, but love teaching kids of all ages (even adults!).

As a teacher, I am flexible and fun-lo

ving. I believe that music should always be fun, even when it's hard. I help foster a lifetime love of music, and work with him/her to design a custom program just for them.

I'm classically trained, but love all music, especially baroque, renaissance and Celtic styles. Medieval and renaissance music has a special place in my heart because I spent several years playing it as part of a string quartet.

I am available for online lessons all over the world, and I'm happy to record them so you can review them all week long.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson consists of checking student's progress, addressing any immediate issues, and developing technique/knowledge.

In 3-6 months, your child should be:
* Reading music consistently at a level appropriate to their progress.
* Developing an understanding of rhythm and meter.
* Placing their fingers properly for the most part.
* Developing correct posture and holding their instrument and bow in a relaxed manner that suits their body type and facilitates the freedom of movement required for making great music.

I specialize in working with kids of all ages - from 5 to 95!

My son was excited about Ms Gail’s knowledge of the viola.

I Love my lessons with Ms. Gail! She makes the lesson fun and is always encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and try an exercise before a scheduled lesson. I would highly recommend Ms. Gail!
September 28, 2018
Gail is a terrific instructor. She constantly recognizes your successes (however big or small ) and challenges you to do better. She has an amazing ability to know when you need to take a different approach to your music. Every musician or student is different and she adapts her techniques to variety of levels of learning.

Salvador B.

Dallas, TX 75287


Private Violin Teacher

I teach violin from ages 3 and up in North Texas.

About Salvador

I am a professional musician and educator. I have always enjoyed and been eager to share the musical knowledge that I learned from the very first music lesson I ever had; this feeling in me has never changed. I simply love to help people who want to learn new instruments.
I am patient and encouraging, helping you to always believe in yourself and I believe and have the educational means to help you do it. Whether it is piano, guitar or some other instrument you want to learn, I can help you.
I was became entirely dedicated to music when I was 14 years old. I learned Classical/Jazz/Pop Guitar, Piano and Flute/Recorder/Alto Sax. As soon as I started learning, I started teaching. In my church there were a lot of kids that didn't have the opportunity to learn music, so I volunteered and became their music teacher passing on to them whateve

r I learned myself.
As I grew older, I kept on studying and teaching music as a church volunteer and noticed that my own skills would dramatically improve just because I was devoted to my student's learning.
I pursued a degree in Music Education in New York City at the Aaron Copland School of Music. The education and experience I gained from college, drastically improved my teaching skills and I was able to work as a Music Teaching Assistant for a private school in NYC, a Senior Chess instructor for after school programs and a Private Music Studio teacher.
Nowadays I am an active music teacher and performer, looking for new students and opportunities to share the love of music. I always reach out to people who have musical interests and want to further develop or experiment with music.

I will be very happy to be your music teacher!

I had my very first lesson today with Sal, and I’m excited about some very cute things he taught me in just a short period of time. He is very talented, approachable, enjoyable to work with, and knows what he’s doing. I look forward to learning and growing with him.
February 26, 2019
This brief lesson was helpful, especially since its my first time learning. I learned a few chords and now have some homework to do. Very personable and straightforward! I just moved back to Dallas and needing some instructions to finally get started.

Burleson, TX 76028

Private Violin Teacher

Learning a musical instrument should be fun, exciting, and most importantly pain-free.

About Chaul

I have been playing the violin for over 24 years. I like to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students regardless of their age. I would prefer beginners to take at least one year of piano lessons prior to learning how to the play the violin. This way students can transfer basic music knowledge into violin playing, especially in the field of reading and learning new music. My goal is to help music lovers learn how to teach themselves one day when a music teacher is no longer available.

I started teaching in 2011 while I was completing the Master of Music degree at Rice University. As I finished my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in December 2017, I decided to build and expand my own studio in Burleson, TX.

I also tutor beginning, intermediate, and advanced Chinese and have always loved Chinese literature.


March 15, 2018
Thank you Chaul for a great lesson and also for being so patient with me when my computer didn't log into the session right away. I enjoyed my first lesson and am excited to have such a fabulous teacher that sent me material and information to prepare for my first session. I feel confident that I will be able to progress and I know that I will enjoy learning with you. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
February 21, 2018
Within a half hour lesson I learned the proper way hold the bow and the chords to pluck for twinkle twinkle little star. You can feel how excited she is to be teaching someone her passsion. I'd definately recommend her.

I have been playing the violin for 16 years and was taught by a Fort Worth Symphony Violinist. I love teaching and creating an environment that will help the students love to learn. My passion for music is why I want to continue to share that passion with others.

First lesson went great and I'm looking forward to the rest!
July 30, 2019
As an adult picking up the violin for the first time, I overwhelmed myself with preconceived notions and ideas about what I thought playing the violin entailed. Emma has effortlessly dispelled my doubts. Her kind and patient approach keeps me focused on the actual playing instead of worrying about the details. Thanks to her guidance, I have seen great improvement since I began playing. I would highly recommend her.

Super patient and so good with our 5 y/o daughter. Really enjoyed the sessions we had with her.

Private Violin Teacher

I am a cellist, but as an orchestra teacher full-time I am able to implement and teach techniques for all stringed instruments. We will use a variety of supplementary books and will have fun in the process! (:

About Savana

Hello! I recently graduated in 2014 from Baylor University with a Cello Performance degree. I currently teach elementary orchestra (4th & 5th grade) in Dallas ISD. As well as teaching, I currently perform with the New TX Symphony Orchestra in Dallas and in my church orchestra on viola and cello.

We will learn a variety of pieces ranging from classical to contemporary/pop music while learning the techniques to play each string instrument! Can anyone say "Baby Shark" and "Despacito" fast enough? And I focus on music theory ---basic note and rhythm reading & writing and recognizing musical symbols.

I am also bilingual in Spanish ---fluent in reading/writing and basic in conversation (although I am continuously learning & improving my language skills!)

Private Violin Teacher

Each lesson is tailored to the individual's unique technical needs and musical goals. I do not believe in any "one size fits all" approach, and instead draw inspiration from several pedagogues and methods to find the best fit for each student. While technique is a major emphasis, lessons are always fun and energetic. I have taught beginners through undergraduate music majors. While some of my students go on to major in music and study at major conservatories, others simply take lessons just for fun - to have a creative outlet, participate in orchestra, or simply enjoy music for its own sake. I enjoy teaching everyone, at every age and stage, no matter the reason!

About Nicole

I have been teaching privately for more than 15 years. In that time, I've taught at arts high schools, conservatories, colleges/universities, at music stores, and out of my home. I am active as a performer, and believe that it is critical for teachers to stay relevant in the field. I have performed all over the US, South America, Europe, and Asia in both chamber and solo recitals; have been a member or sub with professional symphonies and opera companies around the country; and regularly appear with famous artists from other genres. Recent highlights include Weird Al Yankovic, Henry Winkler, Seal, Styx, Johnny Mathis, and several of the Video Games Live traveling shows.
My real passion, however, is teaching! I currently teach 40 students in Frisco ISD, and several more at my home in Roanoke. Prior to moving to Texas, I ran the String

Project at Virginia Tech, where I had the sincere pleasure of shaping an engaging learning environment for 200 K-12 string players! I also founded the Radford Youth Strings, so that kids who were not able to travel for lessons still had the opportunity to participate in music.
I value the genuine friendships that I have built with my students and their families, and hope to add you to our community!

Nicole was a Godsend for my adolescent daughter when she started taking lessons with her at age 12. She had had a bad experience with a prior teacher and was losing her motivation to play and practice. Nicole was extremely kind, patient and encouraging yet held my daughter to very high standards. Due to her instruction, my daughter was able to play in some elite pre-professional chamber groups and recently was a prize winner at a Concerto competition. Nicole always had my daughter’s best interests at heart and went above and beyond to provide opportunities for her to excell at the instrument and feel confident about herself and her playing. I highly recommend Nicole for any level of player!

Violin Reviews

"Brynn is patient and kind while always pushing my daughter to reach for her potential. Being in the military we move frequently enough that it has disrupt
ed our daughters passion for the violin. Her current school lumps all kids together based on grade not skill and that has been "boring". We are happy to see not only new things learned but our daughter is back to finding songs and attempting to learn them and practicing during homework breaks. Brynn has been phenomenal and I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn and have fun."
"Zeynep was my teacher for the PALS summer program in Aspen. Her positive attitude made my weekly lesson enjoyable. My playing improved greatly during my s
ummer with her. She helped me become a stronger player. Watching her perform in the orchestra was inspiring."
"The lessons are fun and the instructor really pushes me to get better at violin while at the same time being patient with someone starting from no experie
nce. From what I hear he has students of all ages too and it's neat hearing about other students from time to time."
"Bye! Thank You!"
"My daughter is preparing for her Concerto Competition later this year. She just had her first violin lesson with Lipend, and learned a lot. Lipend is a kn
owledgeable, patient and nice teacher. I am so happy and lucky to have Lipend to help my daughter to reach her goal."
"Alyssa is a wonderful teacher and a professional player. Studying with her is efficient. She has a keen sense of detail, knowing what is most important to
focus on for the next lesson. Her careful instruction reaches well beyond the violin as she teaches musicianship and ear-training. She'll prepare you for real-world playing at any experience level."
"Nikita has been our daughters' violin and guitar teacher for the past 3 1/2 years. I have always been impressed with the way that he is able to work with
each girl's own particular learning style and personality in his approach to them. Nikita encourages his students to stretch themselves to the next level, all the while maintaining a great rapport and enjoyable atmosphere to the lesson."
"lst lesson-- excellent."
"Bye! Thank You!"
