I really enjoy taking saxophone lessons with Ana. She is extremely knowledgeable in topics related to saxophone, jazz, and improvisation. Her lessons are very organized, intellectually stimulating, and she provides just the right amount of structure while allowing me the space to develop my own creative ideas. I highly recommend taking a lesson with her. You’ll thank me later!
Christine
I have played clarinet for 5 years now and am working on music for solo pieces and band class. Ana gives me lots of material to work on and I am feeling more confident about my playing!
Amanda D.
I'm a classically-trained flutist and have been taking Jazz improv and theory lessons with Ana for four months. I have learned so much from her - she has opened my eyes to jazz and made it fun and approachable. The lessons have given me a deeper appreciation when listening to jazz, improved my listening skills, and made me a better player. I never thought I would be able to do improv, and after a few weeks of lessons it came very easily to me. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to learn jazz improv, regardless of what instrument they play!

Private Violin Teacher

I began violin at the age of 12. I was immediately in love with it at 11 after hearing my best friend play for our school band. After traveling to Branson, MO, I returned home with my first violin just after turning 12. I played in my many youth orchestras including the Bloomington Youth Symphony, Terre Haute, Columbus and my highschool orchestra. I teach Suzuki style using a variety of method books. I teach ages 5 and up. Learn proper bow hold. Violin requires good intonation and solid technique both of which I ensure each of my students follow from the beginning.

Violin was my first instrument, and it served as the foundation for everything else I did in music. Playing the violin teaches a high degree of musical sensitivity and I'm always excited to cultivate these qualities in any student that wants to learn. When I teach violin, I try to tailor to the needs of the student while teaching...

-Good intonation, which is one of the fundamental challenges of the instrument
-Playing by ear, an especially important skill for an instrument that can be used in almost every type of music on the planet
-Vocal phrasing, which is learning to use all the parts of the instrument to make it "sing."

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

The first class was very good. We covered a good amount of ground. There's only so much an instructor can do during a first class as the teacher and student get to know each other, however, so I'm looking forward to future classes to get deeper into the lessons

The violin showcases a player's talent more than any other instrument, some say. It's the hardest instrument of them all, others say. Whatever your goals, I am happy to play a role in your musical journey with this instrument. Follow a classical, traditional method of my own development that incorporates the most common repertoire sought after in festivals, auditions for orchestras, and auditions for colleges.

"Our son is taking violin lessons from Tigran. We absolutely love him. Tigran comes to our home every week and we have complete trust in him. He is extremely kind and patient and has an amazing teaching style. Our son has only had about 7 months of lessons and each month he has tremendous growth. He is 18 years old and has never had a violin lesson until now. He practices without us having to tell him and he looks forward each week to his lessons with Tigran----That speaks volumes about Tigran as a teacher. We highly recommend him as a teacher and a friend."

All two of daughters take violin lessons from Kelvin. He's been a wonderful addition to the community. He has a great level of patience and natural way of connecting with young children.
The girls also enjoy the community aspect of Kevin's program as well as the opportunity to perform the pieces of music that they work so hard on mastering.
They both made into Chicago youth symphony last year."

Mark is an excellent teacher. He helped me correct my stand and holding the violin and hand position which has me playing much better. We had to back up to the basics but that will help me be a better violinist. He also has been flexiable about changing dates and time to fit my needs. I recommend him to anyone!"

"I am a 16 year old high schooler and athlete and I've been learning the violin from Mr. Nader since I was around 7 years old.

His teaching method is very organized and increased my knowledge of music to a level beyond all of my peers. His time that he takes to teach me is very well spent, always being productive, and always encouraging me to become a better violinist. He has taught me many techniques that I could only dream of learning because of their great difficulty. Even outside of class, if I happen to have questions, he always has time to answer them for me.

If you even are considering Mr. Nader as a teacher, go for it! It will be a great experience that you wont regret."

"Erin is a wonderful violin instructor. My 9-year-old completely changes her attitude about her violin when Erin calls for class. My daughter is one of those who wants to be really good at the violin, but not practice much. Erin is changing that. She is a joy to work with. We are back and forth to China during the year and Erin has been amazing to accommodate our class times to our 15-hour time change. We are blessed to have found Erin. I highly recommend her!"
