Private Violin Teacher

I am very passionate about technique, and so I make sure each student is set up for success by encouraging good posture and both left and right hand placements. I believe scales are vital, so each of my students does a variety of scales and rhythm exercises to ensure they are confident in counting as well as note accuracy and intonation. My mother is a piano teacher, so I grew up loving music, and in turn, falling in love with the idea of teaching! I care deeply about each student and want to ensure that they walk away from each lesson with new knowledge, whilst learning to love the violin and music in general!

Edward A.
Very good instructor. She has the right temprament for me being an older student.
Tracey L.
She was very thorough..plus her style of teaching will definitely benefit me in the long run!!
Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

"Have been taking violin lessons with will for a few months now. As an older student doing this as a hobby, Will is super patient working with me at my slower pace ;) . I was hesitant at taking violin lessons virtually at first as I thought it was going to be impossible for me to learn without someone next to me in person, but Will has a great method of teaching and I was actually able to pick up basic technique's early on.

Will comes with a ton of knowledge of music and musical techniques in general which definitely shows.

I highly recommend Will for a teacher of all ages!"

"Very clear and passionate about the instruction he teaches! Lorenzo has won many musical competitions and is not only an exceptional violinist but also a great teacher. Taking lessons from Lorenzo has helped me be able to get in Brevards music festival program in 2019 and also make it to the semifinals in their solo competition. I would also like to add that with Lorenzo’s help I also was able make it to the finals at my universities solo competition later that year. Lorenzo is great at teaching bow technique and left hand finger technique but he is also amazing at teaching the heart and soul of the music!"

"SO happy with my first class - instead of treating me like a beginning 8 year old (I'm almost 30), he willingly focused on technique and accepted my word that I have read music before (I played piano for several years) instead of forcing me to read a treble clef to him. He also immediately addressed my most pressing concerns (such as bow hold) as I am trying to partially self teach in the interest of time and money using online lessons, etc. Focusing on technique instead of how to pizzicato a quarter note allows me to practice and his teaching style, telling me what mistakes I may be making and why I am making them as a beginner (too much pressure, too little, etc) really allows me to try and improve before the next lesson. I am INCREDIBLY happy with his flexibility and teaching style and will gladly continue taking lessons from him. Highly recommend, at least for the adult beginners like myself!"

"A year ago, after a long 40 year or so break, I returned to my violin.
My professional career has nothing to do with music. Learning violin again is a hard work. The physical challenge is there, the ability rapidly to develop muscle tone and memory “sadly just isn’t there anymore.” My right arm is as stiff as a 2x4 stud and left fingers slip. So, lighting dashes over strings will take longer – much longer - to perfect.

But, Tigran reminded me that he has not found any shortcuts and he has been looking for a long time. I resumed very basic finger exercises and routine scales. And the results were very slow but the reward was there.

Tigran is very structured and systematically approaching how to improve the intonation and tonal quality. So, I am happy to leave it up to him to take the lead."
