Private Violin Teacher

As a music instructor, I am eager to cater to the needs of each individual child and to provide them with engaging musical experiences in supportive environments. I have previously provided violin, viola, and piano lessons to students of all ages both through Thompson Tutoring in Portage, Michigan and Reverb Lessons in Chicago, Illinois. I have approximately six years of private teaching experience.

I recently graduated from Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts with a Master of Music Degree in Viola Performance. In 2016, I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Viola Performance and Spanish. My performance experience includes both local and international venues. I have performed locally throughout the Southwest Michigan area, in orchestras such as the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, Whiting Park Symphony Orchestra, Holland Symphony Orchestra, and Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed internationally ...

No more waiting to get to the good stuff! Our proven violin and piano methods let you use the entire fingerboard and keyboard from your very first day.

Other methods restrict student access at first. Students become accustomed to a narrow range. They may become anxious when invited to advance to a new level. Our gentle approach has produced concert violinists, professional fiddlers, and accomplished pianists, as well as avid amateurs.

You don't have to be an advanced player to make music on piano or violin. Some folks need more encouragement, but everyone has something to say. We'll share proven tools in the private lesson to have you playing violin and piano the way you always dreamed.

Experienced teachers, beginners to advanced. Ruth has over 30 years teaching experience in colleges and music schools. Come see the possibilities!

I just started working with Mel and he is awesome! He really listened to my goals and the type of music I am interested in playing and he is planning our lessons based on that. He is very good at explaining things and giving examples. I look forward to our lessons. Highly recommend!
Micaela C.
I had a great first lesson with Mel! He was very enthusiastic and encouraging. I appreciate how willing he is to work with me towards my goals, which are pretty specific. I look forward to continuing to work with him on fiddle and ear training!
Kaitlyn
Mel is fantastic! I have only been taking lessons with him for a short time, but I feel like I have really made a lot of improvement! He is extremely patient and really cares about music. You can truly tell he puts his all into his lessons and truly cares about his students. Music is his passion and his optimism and love for music is contagious.

I decided to learn the violin and had no experience or background at all. Mel helped me start off with the essentials and is making sure I know proper form! I am beyond grateful that I found him and recommend him to anyone looking to learn. I promise you won’t regret hiring him to help you along your musical journey. I am most definitely looking forward to all my future lessons! Thank you Mel!

I have put my daughter in singing classes with many different teachers but none were as spectacular as Mary. She is in love with these classes and all the technique being taught in them, and I've noticed a lot of progress in her singing plus confidence in her ability. I sadly cannot afford any more classes but recommend Mary whole-heartedly to anyone that really wants to advance as a singer and have serious improvement.

Mary is an excellent violin teacher. She has a firm yet kind approach with an effective method in teaching a challenging instrument. She is punctual, reliable and passionate about teaching. In short, we had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Mary!

Private Violin Teacher

Hi, I'm Elizabeth! I teach private viola, violin, and piano lessons, and I also tutor music theory and history! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Music degree in Viola Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory, and just recently with my Master of Music degree from The Hartt School in Spring 2021. During my time at Shenandoah, I worked through the school as tutor, helping my peers through music history and theory courses. It always made me so happy seeing them improve in their classes!

I have been teaching viola, violin, and piano for four years, and it is my passion! It brings me so much joy to enrich my students' lives with music, and to watch their progress as they grow. While I don't expect the majority of my students to become professional musicians, I think it's vital that we all, as humans, learn the language of music so we can communicate and understand the world better. My biggest hope is that I make a difference in my students' lives.

"I am a returning student to the violin. Nikita is a musician who is passionate about what he does. I "studied" (more like, didn't practice) violin for 13 years when i was younger. I had a lot of bad habits. Nikita ensures that when you first start out that you start out with good habits and he emphasizes this by going slowly. My violin teacher growing up would always chide me about how I didn't have the right posture for holding the violin and bow, but I was never able to improve. Then, recently I had another violin teacher and I struggled to improve my form for over a month with him. Nikita? I improved immediately. He is a talented teacher and one you will enjoy having for both his passion and his ability to correct and improve your playing."

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs

Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly …
