Gaithersburg, MD

I teach from the earliest beginner through adult. My violin students are currently performing for different schools and ensembles. When students are performing with orchestras, much time is spent working on that music as well as their regular music.

About Diane
I have a degree and certification in violin and piano from the Boston Conservatory as well as a Master's Degree from the University of Maryland. I have had additional training and certification as a Suzuki teacher from The Suzuki Teacher Training Institute. I am a member of SAGWA-Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area as well as SAA-Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have played all around the world including the Vatican, White House, Paris, Russia, England and Wales as well as in Concert Halls such as Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center. I have taken students with me to perform as well in these countries and also every major concert hall in the Washington, D.C. area. I give my students opportunities to perform whenever there is an opportunity. In addition I work with students to earn music scholarships to private school
s and colleges. I am also a judge in the Young Artist Award in Maryland. In addition, I have received two White House awards for my performances at the White House, I am also a member of Psi Chi International Honor Society.

Music has been an important part of my life. It represents so much that is good in life and I do my best to communicate this to my students. I am training my students not just to be musicians but to love music for life.

*** Lesson Details ***
I treat each student as an individual since everyone is different. For some I might use a traditional approach, some just the Suzuki approach and others a combination of techniques. Whatever produces the best results. My goal is not to make strictly classical musicians but to train students to love music and carry this love throughout life. My repertoire consists of everything including traditional, Suzuki, Disney, Showtunes, etc. I have taken students to perform little concerts at the White House, schools, hospitals and concert halls to get the real feel of performing. I view lessons as a three way relationship between myself, the student and the parent so that the parent is not left out. I even have a small group called Musical Magic which incorporates magic into music. I feel I am laid back but am able to accomplish my goal through positive reinforcement. Every child or student wants to feel good about his/her playing. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. If you want online lessons, please contact me through Take Lessons since I have additional availability to teach online. In the past six months my students have performed for the National Humane Society at their animal ball, a multi teacher recital on a local stage, and just two weeks ago seven of them performed at Strathmore. This summer I have two more concerts planned. Coming up will be an all instrument graduation with several other teachers where students receive medals for their performances. No student is required to perform but if they want to the opportunity is there. All students are required to have an instrument prior to beginning lessons. If students need to rent a violin, I will provide you with the name of a violin dealer that both rents and sells string instruments. Piano students must have a piano or keyboard.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach at home and have both a grand piano and electric keyboard in addition to a harp and violin.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When my students have to travel to perform, I make sure they have everything they need.

*** Specialties ***
Traditional and Suzuki approaches for both violin and piano. I also teach children with learning disabilities.and have extensive summer programs to help students with auditions for youth orchestras and school orchestras.

Ms. Diane is the most amazing instructor. She has been successfully teaching my daughter both violin and piano online for two years now. Ms. Diane is knowledgeable, reliable, flexible and one of the kindest music instructors our family has had the good fortune and pleasure to learn from. We are also lucky to only live about 40 minutes away, so we also get to see Ms. Diane for an in home lesson on occasion. Our daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson with Ms. Diane and plans to continue learning from Ms. Diane for many years to come. If you are looking for a music instructor with such qualities, Ms. Diane is truly worth your time and consideration for both online and in home instruction. If I could give her more than 5 stars I certainly would. Thank you Ms. Diane for everything!!

About Michael
Michael has worked with kids for 10 years in schools and arts programs to find fun and their best self through performance. He has taught orchestra, chamber music, jazz band and music theory in the public schools, while performing in local ensembles in and around the city. He also has studied drama, voice and movement and believes all these skills help in expressing yourself--no matter what pieces you want to play!

In addition to working with students K-12, he also loves working with adults. I try to provide a nurturing atmosphere for someone trying revive or discover previously hidden musical interests!

*** Lesson Details ***
We begin with what we love. The student usually chooses one of his or her favorite songs to interpret. Later, we add music, usually from the classical or jazz fields, that build our skills and help us f
eel successful. All technique is based on real music. Learning scales, keys and music theory become part of the music. By the end of 6 months, we will have a "repertoire" of several songs that express our best self!

About Sepehrdad
As an experienced Violin teacher I help students to teach themselves the violin, to understood that their playing only improves when they change habits. A bored or disinterested child simply won’t progress, and a great violin teacher knows how to communicate with creativity and clarity. I have proper knowledge of the violin’s mechanics, general musical and repertoire knowledge, skilled as a player, and strength as a communicator. I have a bachelor degree in string performance, and I’ve taught students from beginner to advance for more than 10 years, guided students participating in inter-school musical shows, competitions and different musical presentations – Fests and orchestras. I teach both Suzuki and traditional method depending on the level of student.

Each lesson will be taught in response to current needs of a student but the following are the parts that make up an entire lesson:
- Technique
- Theory
- Music
- Practice
All together are basic fundamentals.

My job as a teacher is to help you find a place for music in your daily life and to make a practice time more of an experimental discovery play, than boring work. Once you find a key, it opens up a whole new world of communication.

As a private violin instructor, I believe that education is impossible without student’s motivation and passion. Perhaps you have decided to become a professional musician or maybe you want to play for your own enjoyment... Whatever your goals are, I can lead you there! Let's make it happen together because it is never late to follow a dream!

I recommend younger children travel to me for the best learning experience.

About Zhana
I have been a freelance violinist and a professional violin teacher for the past 30 years. Playing in the orchestra and teaching students are two of my greatest passions in life. As a private violin instructor, I firmly believe that education is impossible without student motivation and passion. As much as I love teaching, my best experience is also learning from my students.

Education - received in the Republic of Georgia (Eastern Europe)
- Tbilisi State Music Academy - 7 year degree in Violin/Piano performance.
- Tbilisi State College of Music and Arts - Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance.
- Tbilisi State Music Conservatory - Master's Degree in Violin Performance.

I am very fortunate to love teaching because it allows me to share my knowledge and incredible experiences that I have acquired in my 30 years of being a m
usician in Europe and the United States.

Professional work experience:
Greenwich Village Orchestra -NY,NY
- Park Avenue Chamber Orchestra - NY,NY
- Charlotte Symphony Orchestra - Florida
- Tbilisi State Symphony Orchestra - Georgia
- Tbilisi State Opera House Orchestra - Georgia
- Tbilisi State Sympho-Jazz Orchestra - Georgia
- Tbilisi State Pop - Jazz Ensemble - Georgia

If you are looking for an excellent teacher that can help you develop both technique and musicality, I highly recommend Zhana.

I have had the privilege of studying with her for seven months as an adult beginner, and I have learned so much. I come out of every lesson feeling like I’ve made progress—even when I am unhappy with how I am playing, Zhana helps me understand a key thing that I need to do to play better. She is able to explain things so that you don’t just conceptually understand, but so that your body can understand too (for all those times that your brain knows what you need to do but your finger/wrist/arm/etc. won’t cooperate).

Because she has played as a professional performer, Zhana draws on her experience to guide you to bring musicality and emotion to whatever you’re playing… even if you’re still in the early Suzuki books like me. I’ve studied with many teachers in the past (in school and privately) for piano, clarinet and voice lessons, so I know that the ability to teach across this broad spectrum of skills is rare.

Zhana isn’t just a great teacher, she is also a wonderful person. I am moving out of the city for a year, but I fully intend to continue lessons with her when I return!

I've been teaching violin for 14 years and my students have gone on to win top prizes at the Solo & Ensemble Festival, featured soloists, and become music majors! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few songs and read music, and as time goes on you'll be able to develop a beautiful tone! I typically use the Suzuki books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: audio recordings, and an extensive music library. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Most important of all, she always remind my son the right habit of the way to play violin at the beginning which I think is very important for beginners! She has a lot of patience and encouraged my son a lot! I highly recommend Annie for both young kids and adult students.

I offer beginner to advanced violin lessons for all ages. I have gotten to perform in many different ensembles and styles. This allows me to adapt to students' interests. Having taught privately for over a decade now (has it really been that long?), I have developed many ways of explaining specific concepts since one student may understand it perfectly if explained differently than how another student grasped it. Teaching violin is one of my greatest loves because I get to constantly see students fall in love with music and violin.

Chicago, IL

I love seeing my students discover and develop their love for the violin as they progress on this beautiful instrument. The violin is difficult! It takes dedication and practice. My goal is to help my students achieve their goals, whether it be getting accepted into Junior High Honor's Orchestra, learning how to play Vivaldi, auditioning for a college music program, or just picking up a new hobby. All levels and all ages welcome.

About Corie
Corie began the violin at age 4 in Sacramento, California. Some of her accomplishments include winning Colorado’s Loveland Chamber Orchestra Concerto Competition, the Wyoming Festival for Strings Concerto Competition and being two time winner of the Utah State University Concerto Competition. In 2010, Corie took first place at the MTNA Regional Competition in Honolulu, Hawaii. She went on to compete at Nationals in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she represented the Southwest Region of the U.S. Corie received her Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Utah State University, where she studied under Rebecca McFaul of the Fry Street Quartet. She sat Concertmaster of the USU Symphony Orchestra under the direction of conductors Sergio Bernal and Craig Jessop. She graduated with her Master of Music degree from the Bienen School of Music at
Northwestern University, having studied under Blair Milton, violinist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Corie enjoys playing solo, chamber, and orchestral music and has performed with a number of orchestras across the country including Washington Sinfonietta and American Festival Orchestra.

Over the years and with varying chamber groups, she has performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Hermitage Museum Amsterdam, Kasteel Amerongan, Caine Performance Hall, and Mary B. Galvin Recital Hall. As former first violinist of one of Utah’s premiere young chamber ensembles, Corie’s international debut was made with the Tribeca Quartet at Zeistermusikdagen in The Netherlands in 2016. With Tribeca, Corie has received instruction from renowned chamber ensembles including the Emerson, Alban Berg, Jerusalem, Brentano, and Pacifica Quartets. During her studies at Utah State University and Northwestern University, Corie received instruction from the Fry Street and Dover Quartets, respectively.

Corie grew up in Colorado and Utah and has a deep love and appreciation for the mountains. She enjoys skiing, hiking, backpacking and canyoneering. Besides being in the outdoors, some of her hobbies include playing tennis, reading, and cooking with her husband.

Corie is not only a world class musician, but also a world class teacher. Her approach is very thoughtful and she will tailor your lessons to best fit your child's needs and growth (and she teaches adults too). Her warmth, personal investment in the student, and great sense of humor makes lessons both engaging and fun. She loves kids of all ages and is someone you can count on. If you are ready to work hard and want a teacher that will be able to open all sorts of amazing musical opportunities to you, this is the teacher for you. Studying with Corie is a great opportunity and I wholeheartedly recommend lessons with her!

Corie was my daughter's first private violin teacher, and she was the perfect foundation for not just the love of the instrument but also the precise technique and skills needed to develop a true musician. Even years later, my daughter's current teachers are impressed with the solid foundation she received under Corie's tutelage. Corie made learning a challenging instrument fun at an age-appropriate level without giving up on any high standards. Whether it was learning to read music, developing ear and intonation, or perfecting a bow hold, Corie had multiple ways to teach, to address habits and difficulties, and to share experiences with the larger studio in group lessons. We still use her teaching reminders and phrases during practices sessions. With Corie's violin lessons, you get more than just basic instruction; you get a well-rounded introduction to true musicianship.

I am a professional singer, instrumentalist, songwriter, and recording artist. I even dance. I am currently attending college for Recording Technology and I will be graduating from the Los Angeles Film School with a major in Music Business and Recording Technology.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their technique, skill, and ability. Every student has a unique, so I like to teach students using different techniques in order to unlock their own individual ability and mindset. I can help any student to play and perform with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 9 years, and keyboard and synth for 5 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or eve
n rock and roll depending on the goals and preference of the student.

My passion is music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better performer!
