I signed up with Mindy for violin lessons and just had my first session. As a complete beginner, her explanations were very useful. I am looking forward to my next sessions.
I highly recommend Ilana. I contacted Ilana just a few weeks before our wedding and asked for some songs which were not regular for weddings. She not only said yes to all of our songs and found us a cellist quickly, but was also responsive to discuss all the details to make sure the performance go well. At the wedding, they arrived early and our guests loved their music! My husband and I feel very grateful for their wonderful presence at our wedding!
Very happy that I found Larisa! She is outstanding professional, enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. She pay a lot of attention to the technique of playing violin that is very important. My son is really enjoying violin lessons with Larisa.
Jerry Pajel (Mr. J) is a passionate violin teacher. I have been taking violin lessons for one year now, and I must say that I learned so much in my first month of lessons. While teaching, he communicates effectively and makes learning the violin easy!
I found a violin teacher close to my home! It was easy to sign up, answered a few very good questions about what my interests were and what I was looking for. I got contacted the same day. The teacher is 12 minutes from my house.
I completely recommend Amy as an violin teacher. She is an excellent teacher, is very patient, explains things very well and finds the way around to makes sure the student understands. Especially in my case that I am an adult that haven't had any music instruction since elementary school. She always provides helping tools such as websites and great exercises. You can definitely tell that she really loves teaching violin lessons!
Maddie Alan-Lee is an inspiring violin instructor who really connects with her students. She taught my daughter for several years and helped her to enjoy the experience of violin which is a challenging instrument. She made the lessons fun with her creative strategies and her natural sense of humor. Whether your kid is resistant (like mine) or enthusiastic, Maddie the one!
My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons from Paul. The piano lessons since age 9 for almost 2 years now, and the violin lessons for a few months now to augment the strings music instruction at her school. He was referred by a family in our neighborhood, and he was open to trial lessons before completely signing on. He goes into music appreciation and history along with his teaching. We have also enjoyed a few recitals of his students along the way - there are three of these each year in student homes, and the anticipation of an upcoming recital is good motivation for the student to practice. For one of these recitals, Paul wrote the sheet music for a popular song that my daughter chose, since there wasn't one readily available. So he goes out of his way to customize the teaching. My daughter has progressed well, and enjoys the experience. I definitely recommend Paul.
Michele is a wonderful teacher! I am taking violin lessons after several years of not playing and she is very encouraging. After years of playing classical music, I am enjoying taking lessons to explore other styles of music, such as folk music. She has an extensive background that allows for this kind of exploration.
There is an emphasis of motion freedom and connection to spirit from the beginning.
Kathleen makes every aspect of violin enjoyable. She challenged me to be better, and made learning fun and stress free while doing so. There was never a dull lesson!
Irena is a spectacular teacher and is really accommodating to all of her students. She works with them to break down difficult pieces and make them easy. She can take someone's skills to the next level and always brings her 100% to each lesson. Most importantly, she teaches each student to really feel for the music and love it.

I have been a violinist for over 20 years. I have studied at Alma College (MI) and graduated with a professional violin degree and an education of music degree. I have been teaching since 1999 and love it!
Here is a little about my teaching: There are two approaches we can take to your lessons: hobbyist or more serious. If you are looking to learn a musical instrument as a hobby, we will focus on basic technique and note reading while building some beginning repertoire. For those wishing to pursue music more seriously, I believe in a strong foundation of technique, music theory, and ear training as well as building a repertoire that will serve you well for future auditions. I also believe it is important to learn to practice efficiently and be unafraid to explore your musical ideas. If you aren't quite sure where you want your musical journey will take you, we will work together to figure out what works best for you. I am currently a San Francisco based professional violist with a background in both violin and viola performance. I graduated from the Juilliard Pre College and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and my primary musical activity right now is being the violist in the San Francisco based Friction Quartet. Though I personally started violin lessons at a young age, I strongly believe that any age can be the right age to learn a musical instrument. I am available to teach at my house in the Sunset, come to your apartment or workplace, or we can meet at a music studio near you. In addition, maintaining a flexible schedule is important to me as I understand that your schedule may change week to week. Lessons are offered semiweekly, weekly, or every other week. How often we schedule lessons is up to you. I offer the following pricing: * 30 minutes - $35 * 45 minutes - $50 * 60 minutes - $60 Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

I teach violin and electric violin to students of all ages. I also create customized string arrangements.
