Private Violin Teacher

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.

Private Violin Teacher

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!

Robert was nervous for his first lesson. Annie’s teaching style set him at ease very quickly. She was clear and concise with her instructions. Very hands on as needed: adjustment of violin, bow , hand and arm placement,etc. I, as Robert’s parent, was very impressed with Annie.

Annie is a wonderful piano instructor. She is very patient and makes you feel comfortable and confident as you attempt new challenges.

Online Violin Teacher

Hi, I'm Brianna! Whether you're completely new to music or have taken lessons for years, I'd love to help you meet your goals as a violinist and musician.

I've been studying violin and composing for 17 years and specialize in classical music, but my musical background is diverse. I’ve performed as an orchestral and chamber violinist, written and performed for film scores, played in musical, opera, and ballet, and recorded for singer/songwriters.

My teaching approach is tailored to the needs of each student and I’ve worked with violinists of all ages. I especially love working with adult students – it’s never too late to try something you’ve always wanted to learn!
Whatever you’re hoping to gain from lessons, I would love to talk and start learning together!

Brianna is amazing! I played violin when I was a kid but stopped for almost a decade before deciding to pick it up again. I looked up online and found Brianna on takelessons. I've just had my fifth violin lesson with her. She's patient, knowledgeable, and all-around a lovely person. She helped me come back to violin so fast. I enjoyed every lesson with her. Highly recommend! You'll be fortunate to have Brianna as your teacher.

Brianna is a very talented musician and teacher! Extremely professional and responsible, her lessons always go smoothly are very fun!

"Nikita is definitely a talented teacher. My daughter has had three other violin teachers and he is the best so far. Not only does he do a good job of teaching the notes, but he incorporates history and teaches his students how to play with passion. He is kind and patient and I would highly recommend him. Sadly, he is a bit on the expensive side."

"Hi, Three of our children took violin lessons with Cara Arnold for 4-5 years. She was an amazing violin teacher. She understood how to tailor her lessons to each individual child and was adept at finding music pieces that were challenging but also fun for the kids to learn. She has an enthusiasm for violin that she shared with our children and was always encouraging to them- but was also able to toe the line or ask for more when needed. I highly recommend her as a violin teacher. She is thoroughly knowledgeable in her subject and has years of experience with all ages. She also completely enjoys her job and it shows."
