Dimitry Olevsky is an excellent violin teacher whose style and insight as a teacher can and certainly will lead to many top adult violin players in the years ahead. I say that from the perspective, not only of my current 13-year old, who is studying under him after having taken less inspiring lessons elsewhere, but also from memories of years past when my now much older adult daughter took violin lessons as a middle and high schooler. And indeed from my own perspective taking serious music instrumental lessons (not on violin) decades ago. Having said the above, Dr. Olevsky will be most successful with students who have an internal drive and desire to better themselves as a musician. He can be severe and critical in pointing out areas where his students' techniques and musical interpretation need improvement, and he is excellent in both aspects of this guidance. A lesson sequence is serious business, and Dr. Olevsky can be severely critical if the circumstances call for this. Lesson time is not given to frivolity, and students must be able to accept criticism. A non-self motivated student may falter under his guidance -- unless the process of becoming better leads to increased dedication. I.e., the non-dedicated student may find the pressure to improve more than he or she might like, and the lesson criticism and demonstration of specific ways to improve may lead to discouragement. This is more likely to happen if the student does not act on suggested improvements during practice at home between actual lessons. I highly recommend Dr. Olevsky for students dedicated to learning seriously.
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 daughter needed a violin teacher and we found Grace on thumbtack. It was not only easy to set up the lessons but she's so professional and knowledgeable that I couldn't be more satisfied with her as a teacher. Her patience and well structured lessons have not only educated my daughter but have encouraged my daughter's desire to play the violin.
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.
I hired Sara for violin lessons for my 8 yr old son. She was excellent! Not only was she a skilled violinist, she also had great teaching skills especially with this age group. She made his lessons fun & was extremely patient. I would highly recommend Sara. She is reliable & her personality is delightful.
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
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
My 2 grandchildren started taking violin lessons with Chloe, ages 5 and 6, March of 2013. They have continued with her and have progressed very nicely. Chloe has a beautiful touch with small children. She is patient and cheerful, yet demanding as well. As small children and beginners, she stared them with a modified Suzuki method, introducing other beginning material as well. She is young and recently graduated, but I knew she was a natural born teacher when I realized after just a few lessons that she gave two different lessons to the children, adjusting and modifying her information and method according to the needs and strengths of each child. We have been very happy with her teaching and the children have developed a very positive attitude toward the violin.
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.
He's has patience with me. Encouraging. Flexible with scheduling. Easy going. I'm a beginner and I'm feeling excited about the road ahead. He is also located super close to me which is huge for me also.
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.
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
I have over 20 years of teaching experience, and have taught beginners and advanced students alike. As a classically trained professional musician I have played in numerous orchestras (community and professional. I have performed in other settings that include jazz, bluegrass, folk, rock and country music.
My name is Jorge De la Cruz, I am 21 years old, and I am from South America. I started playing the violin when I was five years old, at the National Conservatory of Music (Lima, Peru), studying with Fabian Silva Franco (ex-conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra in Peru) and years later, with Maria Foust (actual Concertmaster of the N.S.O. in Peru). I've played with different Orchestras in my country, and here in the United States. As a teacher, I've worked with a Russian association of musicians, by providing music lessons totally free, for low-income people in Peru. I've worked also in the most important music store and academy in my country for 3 years. I use a suitable and different method for each student under my supervision, getting very fast results and working in their special goals. It focuses on theory and technique. I love teaching music lessons; and under my supervision, you will learn fast! I am perfectionist, my method is proof of an entire life playing the violin.
I am a music major at CSUSB. I offer violin lessons to young students and adults, beginning level with violin. The student can either come to me, or I can go to them.
