Private Violin Teacher

Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and I would like to teach my students what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

Private Violin Teacher

It is my goal as a teacher to "decode" each individual student's personal learning style. I strive to create a fun and safe learning environment and to instill the values of lifelong learning, curiosity, and self-improvement in my students. My primary goal as a teacher is to make playing the violin easy and fun.

My teaching begins with a strong technical foundation. Having strong basics allows the violinist to play their instrument with ease, having the freedom to play musically and creatively. I provide students with a balance of scales and arpeggios, etudes and technical exercises, and classic repertoire, and supplement with fiddle, pop, and jazz tunes, according to the student's interests.

I firmly believe that students can begin learning a musical instrument at any age. While I love working with children, I have developed a specialty in teaching adult beginners. The majority of my students are adult learners between ages 25-65 who are either learning an instrument for the ...

From my experience with her, she is very knowledgeable, has a great sense of humor, knows about computers and I enjoy learning from her. I only hope that I can keep doing the violin lessons until I'm playing the violin well enough to be able to make some music.

One of the things Megan has besides the skill is a good attitude towards her students.

Dillon
Very clear explanations, and I left the first lesson with good goals and a handful of things to practice. Having the lesson online worked out very well and didn't take away from the experience or efficient use of time at all.
Levi C.
I am an adult beginner in my 30's and was a little nervous about starting my lessons. However, I have to say, great lesson! He really took the time to listen to what I wanted to work on and make recommendations. Then he was able to quickly spot areas for improvement and give corrections that were very relatable and easy to understand. I can't wait to keep working with Daniel.

Private Violin Teacher

Have you or your child wanted to learn to play the violin but didn't know where to start? You've found the right place. I have been playing violin since 1995, and been teaching private lessons in the upstate since 2014. I specialize in teaching beginner/intermediate violin students from young children to seasoned adults. What I love about teaching is the "light bulb" moment, where they understand something new and overcome a new challenge.

It's never too late to start.

About Tamara

My music journey began when I was four years old. I was sitting in daycare doing show and tell when my friend came in to show us her new violin. I was captivated by it, asking my friend lots of questions before going home and asked my mother for lessons. Over 20 years later, I still love the violin
