Jason is very responsive and his website is easy and intuitive to use. He helped us book violin lessons with a local teacher.
I started taking violin lessons on January 2017 from Linda Keen and I've been having a blast. She explains everything about the violin, from holding the bow and instrument, to playing it. She has so much patience and understanding on how everyone learns differently. The atmosphere is so comfortable, which helps me to relax and concentrate on my playing. To really add enjoyment to my lesson, she has played along with me, which gives me a sense of accomplishment. She encourages me to take a song and make it mine. That helps to stretch my accomplishments, which is really fun and challenging. With all of this said, Linda is also a professional violinist, which helps to keep her chops up by playing in a local string band. Anyone that wishes to learn violin, I encourage you to take lessons from Linda. She's the best!
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.
Have started lessons with Chloe just one month back for my 9 year old. My daughter and I love the energy and enthusiasm she brings to each lesson. Her focus on technique is something I really appreciate. My daughter was learning violin for about 2 yrs before coming to studio violin, and just month I can see that her music is sounding better with Chloe's detailed focus on basics and techniques. My kid is loving it so far so thumbs up and highy recommend her!
I have worked with Otis for nearly 7 years in a string quartet. I have seen him teach a wide age range and background of students in many contexts. I have observed Otis giving coachings, lessons, and masterclasses and in all of those settings he flourishes. His teaching style is dynamic, adaptive, and creative. He is very responsive to a student’s needs, and his expertise is shared in a compassionate and patient way. When a tactic may not be resonating with the student, Otis will deftly try fresh approaches. His creative thinking and insight is uniquely rich and engaging, and I highly recommend Otis as a teacher for all ages and levels of violin playing.
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.
I began receiving lessons from Miss Kathleen when I was in the 4th grade. She has been my private tutor for the past 8 years, and we only recently stopped having lessons due to her move. She has played a very big role in becoming the musician I am today. With her help and instruction, I participate in my school's highest orchestra, in the Capitol Symphonic Youth Orchestra, and in events such as District Orchestra. She has always inspired and encouraged me to pursue my music related aspirations and, because of that, I plan on studying music in college and pursue it as a career. I can't imagine what I would have done with out her. Over the years of lessons, she has become more than just a teacher. She is my close friend who I continue to go to for advice.
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.
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.
Julie Mae is a good violin teacher. I've learned a lot from her. She's very good in teaching her students the right techniques in achieving good intonation and learning how to play the music the right way.
Kevin is a dedicated and passionate musician who is diligent in his work ethic and kind to his colleagues. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for lessons.
I am a composer and violinist who has 30 years of teaching experience. I teach at Mills College and Holy Names University PMD, as well as in my private studio. My current students are all ages (5 years old to 75) and all levels. You would have the opportunity to play and perform in chamber groups, as well as in private lessons.
My 5yrs old daughter has been amazingly improved in violin for 6months! Thumbs up!
Having not played for over a decade, I enjoyed picking up the violin again and having lessons with Claire. She made the lessons fun!
What makes me stand out: I teach not only technique, but I aim to inspire the student based on musicality and the artistry that makes music meaningful. I hold myself to a high standard to keep music engaging and to ensure that the student learns something meaningful each lesson. All skill levels accepted!

I have returned recently to the Bay Area from Kentucky where I taught violin at the Music and Arts Center of Cultural Learning.
I help students learn to develop their own improv style on the violin. In addition to learning techniques, I focus on helping you learn to research music influences that will be of use to you.
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!
I am a grade 7 ABRSM-qualified violinist. I have 11 years of experience playing the violin and am also trained in music theory. I am willing to travel to my student's house. I have reasonable pricing, and am willing to teach first-time students.
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 Larkspur Landing, or can come to you for an additional fee. Maintaining a flexible schedule is important to me as I understand that your schedule may change week to week. How often we schedule lessons is up to you, though I recommend one per week. I offer the following pricing: * 30 minutes - $40 * 45 minutes - $50 * 60 minutes - $60 Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
