Jim Plattes is an excellent violin teacher. I am a beginning adult violin student who requires a lot of patience. He provides a comfortable environment for learning and has given me useful instruction on developing my bowing hand, holding the violin, and developing the right tone. I recommend him highly.Sep 30, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My rates are based on a 30, 45 or 60 minute lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Phone interview. I like to find out a person's musical history. What instruments that person plays or has played. Also, find out what that person's musical goals are. We can then develop a plan to reach those goals.

Assistant Concertmaster of the Minnesota Orchestra. I have also studied fiddle with Vassar Clements. 30 plus years of teaching private lessons. I have performed professionally since 1974.
