My 10 year old child has been taking private violin lessons for over two years. In that time we have cycled through several teachers in an attempt to find someone who could actually teach. She would put in the time practicing, yet continued to spin her wheels with a thousand different variations of Twinkle, Twinkle. (Pass the Tylenol.) Simply put, we were not seeing any notable results. Since she began lessons with Dimitry in February, she has progressed significantly. Her growth has shifted from completely stagnant to shockingly exponential under his tutelage. In only 3 months time, she has advanced from Suzuki Book 1 to a rather challenging piece. Last week she auditioned for and was accepted into the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra, a feat which would have been completely unattainable before starting with Dimitry a few months ago. Most importantly, my daughter now enjoys playing the violin and does so with confidence and passion. She appreciates Dimitrys straightforward yet motivational style of instruction and looks forward to her weekly lessons. We highly recommend him to all those looking to take their musical studies to the next level.
Our son has been taking Cello lessons from Arlette for 1 1/2 years now and has improved tremendously. He is 14 years old and still looks forward to going to lessons every week. Arlette is really good at finding a student's strengths/likes to keep their interest, as well as finding the areas they need to work on. Highly recommended.
My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It's a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++
Gina is a wonderful violin teacher! She is patient and kind and works at my pace; however, she pushes me past what I think are my limits. I was afraid that taking up the violin as an adult would be overwhelming, but Gina has made the whole learning process a joy! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring teacher with attention to detail.
My 10 yr old son has been taking private Violin lessons at home with Brandon for the last 4-5 months. My son enjoys learning from Brandon. He gives a lot of focus on getting the basics right, something which my son didn't learn in his group Violin classes at school.. My son finds him very funny and likes that Brandon gives him little tips like rhymes/beats which help him remember his notes better. There are times he comes a little late because of heavy traffic but he always sends a message and lets us know about it.We are looking forward to learning more from him.
I am an adult who took lessons from Grace for a few months now. Grace is a fabulous instructor with incredible patience! Conveniently located in the city and more than willing to work around a busy schedule. Would recommend to anyone!
I have recently started to take violin lessons with Ms. Zabenova. She is knowledgeable, patient and observant. Ms. Zabenova is able to see my strengths and weaknesses. Her teaching style is clear and flexible. I am looking forward to working with her and making progress.
Manoela has been teaching me violin for over 2 years. She gave me confidence and encouragement from day one. I never thought learning an instrument could be this rewarding! She took the time to find out what I was really interested in learning so that lessons were fun and challenging at the same time from the very beginning. Manoela has a tremendous amount of patience and an ability to teach a number of different ways until I grasp the concept. I could not recommend Manoela more highly for any type of student!
Melody is my violin instructor. She is very knowledgeable, is a good musician, and a good teacher. She understands proper methods to achieve success in playing the violin. ( I have had teachers in the past who could play the violin but could not teach). I strongly give her my recommendation
I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!
Ms. Maira was recommended to my family for my sons violin classes, she has been with us for almost 2 months now and I can say we couldn't be happier. She is amazing
Shanon is the best. I'm about to finish my first term with her and I feel I've made great progress, especially as an adult beginner who's never played music before. She helped me get an instrument and she's always available to answer my questions. 100% would recommend!
Matthew is able to do in-home lessons, which for me right now is very helpful. Although I was going to take violin lessons I decided to switch to viola, and Matthew is a wonderful, wonderful viola teacher (as he surely must be for violin too, given his expertise and patience). He is clearly a masterful teacher, as working with adult students presents a whole other range of challenges to an instructor. I've had only two lessons so far and have already made clear progress in the areas I wanted most to improve, and look forward to working with Matthew going forward. My lessons are inspiring with this clearly highly experienced player and performer; they are also fun. Matthew's a warm-hearted and engaging teacher with whom I KNOW I'll continue to make progress. Though I'm an older adult, I am inspired to push through my limits. With so much to learn I'm very grateful to have a teacher with expertise, humor and flexibilty. Thank you for reading this.
My daughter has had three lessons with Kristi thus far. Kristi comes to our home which is convenient. She's very affordable, always punctual and has a great teaching demeanor.
Michael is terrific! We were looking for a teacher to work with our 8 year old son while we were visiting LA for the month. Michael is amazing at inspiring and engaging our son. Our son was so excited after his lesson we happily booked Michael for 3 lessons a week for the rest of our stay. Highly recommend!
I havent played violin since high school but I wanted to get back into it. Suzanne has been incredibly patient and has really helped me remember how much I love playing violin. Our lessons are fun and she has given me excerpts that make practicing more enjoyable then ever.
I feel she is great teaching my 11 year old daughter. My daughter has learned a lot in just a few lessons.
Great owner, great talent, great services!

I don't fool around with teaching. If the student isn't serious enough, I won't hesitate to drop them. Money isn't my main objective in my work. I love to provide excellent quality of service and I expect students to as well. As far as my other services, I've had much experience in the fields of IT work and wedding planning.

As a violin teacher, my goal is to create a positive learning environment while cultivating your love for music. Each lesson is tailored to meet students' individual learning style and goals. I hold both a bachelor and master's degree from Rotterdam Conservatoire, The Netherlands, as well as a certificate of teaching from Rotterdam Conservatoire. My rates: - 1 hour -- $60 - 45 minutes -- $40 - 30 minutes -- $30 I charge an additional $10 to travel to your home and only teach 45-minute or 1-hour lessons if the lesson is in your home. I look forward to hearing from you! Jan
