Michelle is a wonderful teacher who brings out the best in her students and pushes them to continuously refine their skills. We have been taking voice and piano lessons with her for about a year and really enjoy her.
My 10 year old daughter had been taking violin lessons with another teacher for about 6 months before we thought to try another teacher. Nothing was wrong in particular, but I thought that maybe a different teacher would be worth a try. I liked that Erik's first lesson was free, so I tried him first. In the first 15 minutes of them working together, the difference was as plain as day. The first thing Erik did was disassemble her technique and rebuild it in an intuitive and logical fashion. He was able to explain it to her in a way that was not only easy to understand, but also humorous and lighthearted. Despite this, when my daughter would get distracted, Erik was able to quickly bring her back into a state of focus without being harsh or commanding. My daughter visibly enjoyed her lesson and I was happy to know that her technique would be led in the right direction from now on, without it feeling strict or boring. I wish we would have found Erik sooner!
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!
Mr. David Thorp has been giving my 10yr old son viola lessons for almost a year now, and in that time I have seen my son's confidence in playing in front of people boost. Mr. Thorp is great with kids! He is patient, encouraging and at the sometime makes lessons challenging and fun.
My daughter has taken private lessons from her for only 8 months and has already completed the first Suzuki book. The progress really does seem phenomenal, and my daughter loves playing.
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!
We are so pleased with the violin instruction our son receives from Carol Miethke. She is caring, encouraging, and sets high standards. Studying the violin with Carol has had a positive impact on academics. Through Carol's teaching and the self discipline learned through violin practice, our son gained confidence to take a challenging math course and was very successful in it. I am glad to recommend Carol Miethke to anyone looking for violin lessons.
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!
We have had two lessons and so far she is great! Always on time, patient, yet sets great expectations, and very sweet to all my children, even the ones not taking lessons. My son really enjoys his time with her and I am grateful it can happen in our home so I can witness it all!
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.
Merilee is awesome to work with...Such an inspiration to my child--taking his first music lessons. He asks, "When is my next lesson?" Teacher Merilee advises music books, how to rent your violin and shows you step by step how best to help your child! Super Teacher!
Skarli is an amazing, attentive and creative teacher. My daughter enjoys her violin lessons. Music choices have been fun and engaging.
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.
I bought my first Violin at age 50 as a gift to myself. Had always wanted to play and knew it would be a challenge. Then I met Amanda. Within a few months I was playing several songs and enjoying every minute of it. I even played Silent Night for our church just a few months after I had started lessons. Amanda came to the church and played along with me. After just a couple of years I was playing at weddings. I can't say enough good things about Amanda and her teachings. She made it so enjoyable. Proved that old dogs can be taught. My only complaint is that she moved from Indiana to California.
Daniel is a great teacher! I've been taking violin and piano lessons with him for the past 5 months, and he has done a satisfactory job in helping me feel that I'm meeting my goals musically. I look forward to the lessons to come, and recommend that anyone looking for a violin/piano teacher, to hire Daniel as your teacher.
My teaching method is structured to make room for creativity, to encourage perseverance and dedication, to leave room for the student to explore his/her musical passions, and to inspire excellence in my students. I love seeing how my students progress at our winter and spring recitals. It's especially amazing to see a student have that "breakthrough" moment after struggling with something, be it it memorization, theory, musicality, etc.
I teach violin and viola. I have many years of experience in both playing and teaching. Please contact me for more information.
I provide child music lessons like violin, guitar and piano. My classes are available online, over the phone or at their home.
I believe it's important for music lessons to be fun. I also believe in laying a firm foundation of technique to avoid injuries and problems later on. Often, teachers can come across too demanding, or they have so much fun in a lesson that the student continues their interest in music without developing the necessary skills to play what they'd like. My experiences have gotten me to the point where I believe I've found an excellent balance. I love being able to meet so many different kinds of people, from all walks of life, and being able to share something so special with them.
I offer violin and voice lessons for all ages and abilities. This is not cookie-cutter teaching. You receive custom lessons tailored to your needs, goals and abilities from someone who is passionate, skilled and educated, and has over a decade of experience.
