Private Violin Teacher

I am an experienced teacher with a PhD in music education. All of my lessons are tailored to each individual student's goals. I believe in encouraging students to begin making their own musical decisions from the beginning. We will work on tone quality, vibrato, technique, and style. I also like to incorporate music theory and composition into lessons, especially where there is a lot of student interest. Is there a specific style of playing you want to explore? Let me know! Your lessons are about your musical growth and fulfillment.

About Chaul

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.

In our first lesson, you will learn about the parts of your instrument, how to care for it, and how to hold it. You will even learn some notes and begin reading music! By the end of your first package of lessons, you will be able to play with lovely tone, using the bow as well as plucking, and will have a handful of simple songs under your belt.

Students describe me as patient, fun, and encouraging! As your teacher, you can expect me to work with you from where you are, and with subjects and curriculum that match what you are interested in learning. I teach traditional classical, using either Suzuki or Essential Elements, depending on your learning and self-motivational needs, and I also teach fiddle music, including Celtic, old-time, bluegrass, and alternative styles. *Please check my availability before signing up, as my time slots are quickly filling up!* I look forward to meeting you!

"Very understanding instructor. My daughter (age 12) is moving along at a nice comfortable rate with dramatic improvements already taking shape! I can recommend Ardalan highly for beginners although, from the fragments that I've heard of Ardalan's own playing, I suspect he's equally effective for advanced students."
