About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My teaching philosophy combines various technical and physical fundamentals, advice on how to practice, and musical inspiration. The goal is to create in the mind of my students -- children and adults, amateurs and professionals -- a dynamic, a color, an articulation, and a mood. Then, the practicing becomes focused and techniques can be discovered and perfected. My students experience wonderful results, achieving a relaxed, simple posture with the instrument, and quickly attaining a high level of playing.

    Max, 13yo. I want to write a few words about Stanislav Antonevich, who is not only a world-famous violin virtuoso, but a fantastic violin teacher. Our son Max has been studying with Stanislav for one year and during this relatively short period of time he has made tremendous progress both in the technique of violin playing and in musical performance. Stanislav generously shares all his knowledge and his soul with his students. Our son looks forward to every lesson, and seriously prepares for each lesson, because he greatly admires his teacher and wants to play like him some day. Why did we choose Stanislav? We had other options, but then we looked at some YouTube videos of musical works performed by Stanislav. His virtuoso emotional performance can not leave the audience indifferent. In his hands, the violin sings, cries, laughs. So our son became a pupil of Stanislav, and he is very proud of it. violin teacher classes Boston Newton Metrowest lessons school Svetlana Korochkina Lexington, MA

    Stanislav is an amazing instructor who demands the best of his students and of himself as a teacher. He is very old school and will never tell students they are doing well unless they actually are. If you want your child to improve at dramatic rates and to learn discipline and application, enroll them with Stanislav in violin.

    Luke has started violin study with Mr. Antonévich for about one and half year. He is really luck to start learning violin with Mr. Antonévich and progressed dramatically because Mr. Antonévich ‘s dedication to hard work, insistence on excellence and details, precise and effective instruction. He is not only a violin artist, but also very experienced educator. After less than two years’ study with him, Luke has improved to advance level with solid foundation of violin skill and good habit from beginner due to Mr. Antonévich’s strict and a great reputation in teaching. He can see the potential of each student and encourage them stretch themselves to farther than they think. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful teacher.

    Great teacher with a fantastic resume! Stan is able to focus on bettering my technique and pitch as if I have not taken a 7 year break from studying violin. Highly recommended for advanced violinists and beginners alike!

    My daughter started taking violin lessons with Mr. Antonevich after two years of studying with other violin instructors. After only two lessons, we were able to see a tremendous improvement in her violin skill. Her position has been corrected, which she was never able to accomplish in the previous two years. My daughter is happier because she can hear how much better she sounds now. As of this year, she has been selected as the first seat in the school orchestra. My daughter loves her violin lessons with Mr. Antonevich.
