Private Violin Teacher

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

About Elias

At 5 years old I was struck by the incredible beauty of Vivaldi's music, and ever since I've been playing violin. I hold a BA from Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences, won a scholarship to the Baroque Performance Institute in 2005 and attended the BPI again in 2006. Apart from teaching, as a profes

I've been taking lessons with Elias for over 6 months now and it has been a great experience. I started taking lessons as an adult who previously studied a little violin and wanted to learn Fiddle. He is knowledgeable, patient and has come up with lessons that were perfect for my background. I'm thrilled about the progress I've made so far and taking lessons from someone who loves music as much as Elias has added a real highlight to my week.
Sara
Elias is the best! Such a knowledge and passion of music. He has been my sons guitar instructor going on 5 months. My son has learned so much and always enjoys and looks forward to his lessons. My son is is not only learning guitar but violin as well from him. Fantastic instructor A+
Joni
I am very impressed with Elias! He listened well, offered helpful suggestions, laughed and was very congenial to work with. We discussed how to hold a bow and, since I have some arthritis in my hands, he was very open to other possible options that might work better for me. Taking lessons from him will be a bright spot in my week. I would recommend him in a heart beat!

Private Violin Teacher

Rhea has taught professionally for over a decade, and strives to teach her students that violin playing is not just about technique, but also about learning the language of music and communicating artistic ideas through the violin. A native of Maryland, Rhea served as concertmaster of school orchestras, Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras, American Youth Philharmonic Orchestras, All-State, and All-Eastern. She is the first violin sectional coach of the Philharmonic, Symphony, and Young Artists orchestras of MCYO, and is proud to come full circle by nurturing the next generation of young musicians. Her students have served as orchestral section leaders of their respective schools and/or youth orchestras, and have earned scholarships from several music programs in the area.

At the age of twenty, Rhea made her solo debut with the National Symphony Orchestra, and has performed at some of the world's finest concert halls including Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center Concert Hall. Rhea studied ...

Rhea is a great teacher! After many years of not playing, I decided to pick up lessons again. Rhea is great with adult instruction and she was very accommodating of scheduling. Aside from her music credentials (which are impressive on their own), she is kind, funny, and definitely has the student interest at heart. Highly recommend!
Alan
I was looking to learn the violin during the pandemic, and was fortunate to find Rhea. I've always wanted to learn how to play the violin so I can unwind my days with music after a demanding work schedule. She's taught me so quickly and thoroughly, and I've been able to learn my favorite pop and movie theme songs. She's been so flexible in accommodating in-person and online lessons depending on my needs.
Kelly
My son has had many teachers, but none as attentive and detailed as Mrs. Rhea. For the first time, he is focused in his lessons, and he knows exactly how to practice. He even said, "I can't wait to be a violin teacher like Mrs. Rhea!" What a special thing to hear from my 8-year-old son. We're so grateful we found Mrs. Rhea.

I'm a dedicated teacher and spend extra time outside of lessons thinking about how to best approach the following lesson. I find the style of teaching that works best for the student. I write plans after lessons and email or give them in person summarizing the lesson's key points to help make practicing at home easier and more organized in order to make lesson time as effective overall as possible.

I do a variety of styles in music for the violin. I use whatever method (book or teaching style) is needed to teach what the student needs to learn. I have been teaching violin for 25 years. Depending on age, we will start in either Essential Elements or Suzuki. All beginners will start the bow after they can read the first 8 notes. All intermediates will be able to play 2 octave scales from 3 sharps to 3 flats as well as well into Wolfhart book 1. They will also be able to shift into third position cleanly and will be starting on vibrato. For Advanced players, we will be working on Concertos, sonatas, and partitas if they wish to go classical. IF they wish other styles, we will have started that in intermediate. All students will have an opportunity to go through the music development program, if they are interested.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

"My son has been learning violin lessons from Jonathan since the summer of 2014 when he was 10. We are so fortunate to find Jonathan at takelessons.com and very happy and grateful to have him as a private tutor throughout the years. Jonathan is a brilliant musician and passionate violinist, very professional. He is really good at teaching, very patient and detailed. Whenever my son made a mistake, he would immediately point it out and show him the right way to do it and have him practice time and time again until he got it right. He would also write notes on my son’s music sheet to remind him things he needs to pay attention to during his practice at home. Jonathan also organizes recitals regularly for all his students to gather together and play in a concert like atmosphere and interact and learn from each other, which is really a wonderful experience. Jonathan can be reached easily by text message, email or phone and we have never run into any problem rescheduling a lesson or anything else. I highly recommend Jonathan for anyone who wants to learn violin or music in general."
