Introduction: For the past 12 years, I have been teaching kids of all ages and adults the art of playing the violin. I was trained at the Colburn School of Music in Los Angeles, and continued my studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Now in Chicago, I perform in the city and at Northwestern University. My studio is based out of Andersonville. Not only do my lessons encompass the technical aspects of violin playing, but I also focus on music theory, as well as music history. Every aspiring musician is different, which is why I create individualized lesson plans for every student. Violin has been a constant passion for me, as I began playing at the young age of three. I love being able to share my love of music with students. Watching students develop their own musical voice constantly inspires me!

Madison was such a fantastic teacher for me! Not only did she provide me with basic fundamentals of music theory and violin technique, but she also guided me through repertoire that I didn’t think I could play. She was always organized and giving in our lessons as well as funny. I couldn’t recommend her high enough!

Maddie Alan-Lee is an inspiring violin instructor who really connects with her students. She taught my daughter for several years and helped her to enjoy the experience of violin which is a challenging instrument. She made the lessons fun with her creative strategies and her natural sense of humor. Whether your kid is resistant (like mine) or enthusiastic, Maddie the one!

I wasn't fortunate to have Madison teach me violin for several years. In that time she was patient and innovative, teaching me how to properly play with good sound and technique. I would fully reccomend her to anybody who has a love of music and a desire to learn violin.

I am so happy to have found Maddie as a teacher. Since working with her for the last few months, she has helped me to improve my form and technique, has provided great tips to prevent injury, and has helped me work through some particular problems I was having with certain pieces. Also, she is super fun and accommodating with scheduling. It’s a genuine pleasure to attend lessons with her!
