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 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.

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.

Private Violin Teacher

I believe in developing students’ full potential step by step, as a mentor, to inspire them to foresee a higher vision. To me, every student is an expert learner without limitations. Tailored to each student’s learning progress and needs, my lessons include practice tasks based on pedagogical principles from both the traditional approach and the Suzuki method. My top priorities in teaching include good posture and confidence to perform. I emphasize the importance of aural development by listening to recordings carefully to recognize fundamentals, such as tunes and rhythms, as well as more detailed aspects, such as articulations and tone quality. I also focus on performance practices and interpretations of each musical composition. Overall, I see every lesson as a lesson in life, equipping my students to face challenges with practicable strategies for understanding personal skills, such as patience, determination, consistency, focus, self-motivation, memory, logic, self-awareness with ...

As soon as the lesson began Mr. Ming-hang jumped right in and started to go over all of the important information a beginner like myself needed to start learning the violin efficiently. He was very clear and encouraging through out the lesson. I highly recommend him for anyone who is wanting to further there violin career or even for beginners with no prior knowledge of the violin.
Florette A.
I have been Mr. Tam's student for a little bit over a month now and I have to say he is one of the best, if not the best, teachers that I have ever had. I am a high schooler, and I had been playing the violin for a long time by the time I started taking lessons with Mr. Tam. He wasted no time in beginning the lessons. We started off basically where I had ended with my old teacher, with advanced scales and a piece of my choosing. Throughout the weeks, he follows up by sending me an email asking if I had any questions for him before the next session the following week. He records every session and sends them to me so that I can review my mistakes and listen to the tips that he suggests. Overall, he is an amazing violinist and teacher. He has a great sense of humor and is knowledgeable in the world of classical music. He will explain things thoroughly if you do not understand and seems to take great joy in his profession.
Roxxana
The instructor is very attentive to skills and needs. He is patient and passionate as about teaching the violin. He explains things in an easy to understand manner. He was very enthusiastic about my improvement and stated how happy he was to see improvement. He is knowledgeable about his craft and comes off as a friendly and likable instructor.

I have been learning from Chaul for the past two months. She is a very supportive and patient teacher. I was a complete beginner when I first started, but after one to two weeks, I can play easy tunes like Twinkle Twinkle. Whenever I have any questions regarding the violin, she can give me helpful solutions. When I have lessons with her, I can immediately know where I need to improve and gain a few extra tips on violin playing.

I would highly recommend Chaul to you (people who are browsing on Takelessons)!

Private Violin Teacher

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a recent graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music, where I received both my MM as well as my BM degrees in violin performance. I've studied with with many world renowned musicians and am a very active international performer, performing from CA and CO to London and Cuba.

I am a native of California, born and raised in Los Angeles and have been surrounded by musicians my whole life. With both my parents and my brother playing the cello, I have always found passion and love for music and the community built by musicians. I started playing piano at a young age and after a few years transferred to violin which I then dedicated myself to and grew into my career.

Lessons are whatever you need them to be, but in general I will focus on using scales, etudes and solo repertoire to: solidify technique, improve ear training, and expand your musical portfolio.

I believe that music can be learned and loved by everyone from young children to adults and by ...

As a professional violinist I have had the privilege to study and work with countless incredible musicians, including the Cavani Quartet, Peter Salaff, Keith Robinson, the Dover Quartet, and the Juilliard Quartet.
