Started going for violin lessons (I'm in my 20's with no music background). Had only a couple of classes so far. I really like the pace and her style of teaching. She is professional and very easy to work with.
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!
Julie is so nice and sweet. She is a very good and professional violin teacher.As one of her students, my 8 year old son loves her and her teaching.
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.
Experience is good so far. Only one lesson, but already scheduled a lesson for next week.
There is an emphasis of motion freedom and connection to spirit from the beginning.
I'm an adult starter violist (from age 38). I'm now 5 yrs into it, and I play 10+ concerts a year with a local university orchestra, chamber groups, a quartet, and even fusion bands and occasional paid gigs! Leon is a master teacher who understands the ins and outs of learning process, and he makes adjustments on-the-fly, in order for us to meet my goals. My learning needs are definitely non-traditional. With every lesson, I bring in something I'd like to be able to learn (oftentimes unreasonable). But Leon sees it as a challenge and a puzzle, and somehow finds a way for me to learn the piece. And in the process, my knowledge and skills increase. I've also had the privilege of sitting in on advanced/professional players taking violin lessons from Leon. He seamlessly transitions from topics of artistic expression to elemental techniques to musicology in the same discussion relevant to the lesson topic. In any endeavor, it's not easy coming across a master teacher. You will be in good hands, whether you are an adult starter, a child, a beginner, or an advanced player preparing for auditions, or even a professional player looking for a confidential second set of ears. Leon is also very flexible with appointments. I personally have most of my lessons during weekday day times (as I work weeknights), and some weekends. He's also accommodated emergency lessons and instrument repairs on occasions! Attached photo is of me rehearsing on the stage of the Davies Symphony Hall, and also few other adventures that opened up thanks to learning music!
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.
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!
Prompt response to schedule, easy payment online. First lesson with cello teacher with Bridget was great - she is good with kids. Still early on, so hoping it continues to go well!
Alex is a great teacher, he really focuses on technique and puts a lot of effort into his teaching. Since I am a mature student he is also teaching me some music theory which I love. If you want to learn the violin I would strongly recommend him.
Going very well.
My 5yrs old daughter has been amazingly improved in violin for 6months! Thumbs up!
I am a versatile violinist, with a background in classical, rock, and folk music. I've studied with classical and folk teachers, and am working on a Masters in Violin Performance at SFSU studying under Zak Grafilo, first violinist of the world-class Alexander Quartet. In addition, I write music for my own band, and work as my own manager, promoter, and visual artist. I have experience recording my own music as well as other musician's work. I also play guitar, piano, sing, and dabble on the banjo. As a teacher, I've coached youth rock bands, and taught private lessons to children and adults for many years. I currently work as one of the top teachers at Music N Beyond and Acme Music, teaching violin, piano, and guitar. I also teach private lessons out of my home.
My daughter learns a lot from Julia. She teaches her different techniques, tips on how to play musically, and more...
My name is Thomas. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years now. I want to teach students to play what they want while also learning the basic fundamentals of guitar. If they want to learn their favorite pop song I'm going to teach them it, if they want to become an amazing guitar player I will teach them how to become that as well.

I use an adaptable teaching method, customized for each student and offer scholarships based on need or ability.
I teach piano, violin, music theory, and also Chinese. Here is my resume. Chia Chi Yen, born in Taiwan, discovered the piano at age of five. Within a few years, she has won many prizes in Taiwan. In 2009, she was admitted into the Oberlin Conservatory of Music with a merit scholarship, where she completed her bachelor's degree under the tutelage of Professor Haewon Song. In May, 2015, Ms. Yen completed a master's degree at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University studying with Professor Yong Hi Moon. Ms. Yen was a participant in many prestigious music festivals, including Music Festival at Walnut Hill, Cooper Piano Festival at Oberlin, and Aspen Music Festival and School. She has also performed in piano master classes with world leading pianists, such as Hung-Kuan Chen, Meng-Chieh Liu, Ruth Slenczynska, John Perry, Choong-Mo Kang, Matti Raekallio, and others. Among the venues in which she has performed include Jordan Hall (Boston, MA) Le Petit Trianon Theatre (San Jose, CA), Mayer Theatre (Santa Clara, CA), Warner Concert Hall (Oberlin, OH), Chung Shan Hall (Taichung, Taiwan), Glass Museum (Hsinchu, Taiwan).
I teach violin to all ages, for both beginner and intermediate. I have a B.A in music from UC Berkeley. I have performed with the California Symphony, Fremont Symphony Orchestra, Berkeley Opera Orchestra and Berkeley Symphony, and I was a member of the Vallejo Symphony for 17 years. I have returned recently to the Bay Area from Kentucky where I taught violin at the Music and Arts Center of Cultural Learning.
