Private Violin Teacher

Students can expect a relaxed, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for learning. The violin can be an intimidating instrument- you will make a lot of unpleasant sounds before you start sounding great- and that's okay! I'll be there to guide you and help you reach your goals.

If you're already an experience player, you can expect me "workshopping" your technique. We will analyze your form, practice patterns, and playing style, to ensure that you are growing and improving from the moment we begin. I will push you to become the most expressive player that you can become, but at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

What young students can expect:

- Preparing for entry into school orchestra
- Polishing up school orchestra repertoire
- Learning new material and scales
- Perfecting their technique
- Preparing for NYSSMA
- Preparing college audition tapes (I do have the ability to record these as well)
- Learning to play with confidence
- Learning vibrato

Professional violin instructor and performer with over 10 years of teaching experience in Canada, the USA, and South Korea. Violinist of the prize-winning Vito Quartet. Orchestra and Concertmaster experience across North America, Asia, and the Czech Republic.

Teaching Philosophy:
The most important thing about teaching and learning anything is finding that perfect balance between productivity and fun. Every student will also receive a personalized lesson plan.

-For beginner students-
My role is to provide a fun learning environment where the student constantly feels challenged and engaged. The fastest way to learn the violin is by establishing the proper fundamentals by disguising them in songs and projects that spark their interest!

-For intermediate-advanced students-
My goal is to help you become self-sufficient. The focus will be on developing technique and musical knowledge so that you have all the tools you need to play the violin. I will also put a lot of emphasis on ...

Having taught and performed for over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all levels and ages. For beginning students, you can expect to be playing and learning to read music within your first month of taking lessons. I am happy to say that my intermediate and advanced students have met goals of preparing for auditions with success, performance events, and simply studying new technique and repertoire for their own pleasure. I look forward to meeting and sharing your musical endeavors!

ted tronnes
Kendra had my 13 year old for about a year and a half as a complete beginner, and we'd still be with her for sure were it not for an easier alternative at a new school this Fall. Kendra has an amazing understanding of the younger student and what incentivizes them to learn and grow fast. My child practiced once a day for at least 30 minutes and in the above time is already making a lot of beautiful music. If you/yours is motivated, Special K is the way! Thnx, Kendra
Corinne
Kendra has been a joy to work with so far through virtual lessons. We are just beginning with her and we are encouraged to continue forward. She has a laser eye for technique and is warm and kind. She not only explains technical placement but she also explains the reasons why they are important. She is great with my 9 year old and really checks for understanding along the way.

"Out of all of my teachers that I've had over the years, Jill has given me the most thorough lessons I've ever had. Most of my teachers have focused heavily on repertoire, and ignored the basics of scales and etudes. As a result, I always found them tedious, but Jill breaks everything down into smaller pieces so I don't get bored or overwhelmed. She always comes up with new ways of working on old techniques that help me overcome old, deep-seated habits and difficulties."

"I came to Mark with utterly no background in the violin, wanting to start as an adult learner, and I can't imagine a better teacher than Mark. Mark is helping me gain crucial fundamentals while also learning fun pieces to strengthen those elements and encouraging me to select pieces, too.
I also like that he incorporates some music theory into his lessons.
Finally, I feel like becoming a violinist now, as an adult, isn't as crazy as I worried it might be since I have Mark to teach me."

"Great teacher!!

Anna is an outstanding teacher who really understands how to get through to a student! She places a lot of emphasis on physical aspects of violin technique such as relaxation, that often go unaddressed by most teachers, leading to future problems.

The most striking thing about Anna's pedagogical style is that she is truly passionate about bringing the music to life. She constantly emphasizes the emotional interpretation of the music, however simple the piece may be, and ensures that the student projects the right tonal quality and color to bring out these interpretations.

Working with her has been a great experience, and I always eagerly look forward to the next lesson!"
