Gregor is a kind and supportive teacher who made my lessons fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend him to anyone who is considering violin lessons for the first time or already an experienced player.
Harry is truly an excellent teacher. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He makes the lessons fun and challenging, and I come away realizing I've learned a lot in an hour. He is a really good violin and piano player and it really inspires me to go home and practice. Harry tries hard to be flexible with scheduling which I really appreciate. The price of the lessons is also good. If you are looking for a violin or piano teacher (he teaches me violin), I would say try a lesson with Harry for sure.
Guitar Hangar is a full-service music store, with a wide selection of instruments from beginner to high-end instruments at competitive prices. More importantly, they focus on service after the sale -- including repairs, maintenance, accessories and perhaps most importantly for new and intermediate musicians, lessons. Rick has been my go-to guy for more than 10 years, and I give him and Guitar Hangar my highest recommendation.
Dina has prepared me for a life of professional playing as a violinist. She has not only corrected many technical problems I had, but also helped me musically understand a variety of pieces ranging to Bach Partitas to (most recently) the Shostakovich Violin Concerto in A Minor. I am currently waiting on conservatory decisions, but thanks to her critique, I have received complements from professors at fine institutions including MSM, Mannes, Eastman, Oberlin, and Juilliard- all of whom were eager to know who I studied with. I highly recommend Dina to any student who wants to improve their playing tremendously.
My daughter loves her violin teacher! We switched to City Strings from another music academy, and couldn't be happier!
Sandie is my violin teacher. She is very patient and works very well with adult students. I have been taking lessons with her for about 7 years. I watch her with children and am very impressed how she works with children. I would highly recommend her services!
Allison is an excellent violin instructor. I was an extreme beginner when I started taking lessons from her, and she was very kind and helpful throughout the way. I would definitely recommend learning from her!
Maria is the most thorough, pleasant, and knowledgeable private music teacher I've ever taken lessons from. I leave each piano lesson with a more comprehensive understanding of notes, of rhythms, of musicality, but most importantly, of myself.
I could never expect that I could have such a deep and warm sound. Emanuele really helped me to release all my tension and to feel free while I play.Thanks to him I have now a much more professional sound and a much more serious approach to the violin. Every lesson is a new experience, I really enjoy studying with him.
My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.
I took 1 year violin lessons with JC Valenzuela. Its was joyful and I am very satisfied with her service. I learnt a lot and everyday I was looking forward to the next lesson .. Since she has a very especial and practical way of teaching violin. I would recommend this teacher to any one who really wants to learn how to play violin. Thank you very much dear teacher.
I had a three lessons with Clara to brush up on my violin skills (haven't played since college), and I found her to be an approach and knowledgable instructor. Her teaching style was patient, funny and memorable making for a great learning experience. I would definitely recommend hiring her for private lessons!!
I reached out to Emma after a friend of mine recommended her to me for music theory help. On my first session, I was able to grasp simple music theory concepts that I had not been able to understand on my own. She was able to really simplify it and explain it to me with the upmost patience even after I felt like I was getting everything wrong. After my first session, I inquired about violin lessons and she sent me home with an assignment to start looking at an intermediate violin piece she picked out that would suit my skill level (I am a novice violin player with some experience). She was very quick to respond when I reached out to her on feedback on choosing my piece. On my second session, she started out with a very organized lesson plan for me and a practice schedule that she typed up for me to stick to. Her lessons are very organized and very informative which have definitely helped me see improvement in my playing just after a couple of lessons. I highly recommend reaching out to Emma if you are looking to get quality lessons from a professional musician !
Avital has been my sons violin tutor for quite some time, and I couldn't be happier. He is a wonderful teacher and an expert violinist. He really knows how to deal with children (my son is 9), and is patient and gentle, while at the same time holding them to a real standard and encouraging them to be the best they can. He is a wonderful violin tutor and I highly recommend him!
I was looking for a teacher who can teach beginner adult violin and I found a perfect teacher! I learned violin when I was a child so I did have prior exposure but I haven't played it for about 10 years so I didn't know where I stand or where I should start from. Tianyang also checked the condition of my violin (it was still in a playable condition thankfully). After the first lesson he could see exactly where I stand now and where I should start from. He is helping me to learn the right posture again and he's giving tons of tips as well. He is very patient and encouraging. He works well with adults but I am sure he'll be good at teaching children as well. I'm very glad to learn violin from him!
Helene was able to help me break through a huge mental block that prevented me from learning how to play the piano. I now know how to practice and enjoy learning and playing new songs. You will be very pleased with her.
He focuses quickly on areas for needed improvement and gives excellent, friendly advice on how to achieve it.
My 2 daughters have been taking violin lessons from Rebecca for over 6 years. She is highly skilled and is patient with her students. She focuses on proper technique while making students feel comfortable. I highly recommend her!
What I love the most about Johannes is the fact that he treats his beginner-intermediate students just like his music major students or those who are preparing to audition for conservatories or precolleges. I've studied with him for about 3 years so far. I had learned the violin for a couple of years before him but had no basic technique secured and struggled a lot with tone production and overall playing quality. He put equal amount of focus on basic posture and technique with me as he does with his more serious music major students. He's obviously slower-paced with repertoire than other violin teachers who make students play a lot of pieces very poorly in a short amount of time. But each piece and etude I work on with him sounds like what I have never imagined myself would be able to sound like before. Now I know where the bow should be placed with what arm positions and muscle movements for the best quality tone production, and how the left hand should be framed and driven for secure intonation and flexibility, all thanks to Johannes. As long as you practice just the way he asks you to (which often requires you to be incredibly slow and patient), he'd never ever give up on you and never let you play poorly for years with no noticeable improvement! At first I felt as though I wasn't learning much, because he didn't give me a lot of fun pieces I really wanted to play. But 6 months to a year later, I sounded completely different and was able to play some pieces with much better tone and volume. As long as he's in New York, I'll keep studying with him.

I offer great lessons from an experienced professional teacher and performer. I have taught on faculty at two of the nation's leading preparatory schools and had private students in violin, viola, musicianship and composition for 20 years. I tailor my lessons to the needs and aspirations of the students. All ages are welcome.

My experience in a variety of styles leaves me open to the many options available to violinists beyond the classical world. While I stress a solid foundation in classical technique, I encourage students to follow their own path, whether it be jazz, rock, fiddling, or something else. I also have experience with the electric violin, which can be of some aid in pursuing alternative styles.
