I am fortunate to have found a dedicated and professional violin teacher for my two children. Miss Victoria has a great personality and is able to keep them focused and motivated. My daughter was especially taken immediately with her encouraging and supportive approach. Their hand position and technique are much improved since starting with Miss Victoria.

My 5 year old son started taking piano lessons with WillYouLearn a couple months ago and we are beyond thrilled! My son looks forward to the lesson each week and has made tremendous progress in the short time he has been playing. He already can play songs by memory. The lessons are thorough and our instructor is punctual, accessible and always engaged with my son. Highly recommend!

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!

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'm so glad I decided to work with Helene! I have wanted to learn to play violin since I was in the third grade and was denied the opportunity to do so as a child, so as an adult I decided to take matters in my own hands and take lessons. Helene is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging and after three years at her urging I've joined a local orchestra in addition to continuing lessons with her! I've worked with her both in person and over Skype, and am glad she offers the video lesson option as I was away at school for two years and was still able to keep up with my lessons thanks to connecting online every week. The video lessons were just as high quality as the in-person lessons and I was able to advance to learning 5th position while I was away. If you're interested in learning violin. I highly recommend Helene.

Omer Ashano Music
5.0

    Verified review

    Omer loves music, the violin, and it shows. His youtube videos are smokin' and had me humming with joy. He puts a spin on the classical instrument in a way I had not known possible before...by playing jazz with it! It's just what a teenage boy needs to experience. My son has been playing since he was 5 years old and I felt that the traditional, classical instructors with their dated attitude just would not cut it at this juncture in his music career. With Omer teaching, I'm confident my latently, hesitant violinist will "produce" his own music with time. He goes away from some lessons whistling the piece. When Omer and my son jam, it's quite exciting. Omer is knowledgeable, modern, in tune with the young student, I believe because he was a young boy once too. He's absolutely what we are looking for in a contemporary instructor. And his jazz concerts are quite inspiring to see too. I hope my raving reviews won't take him away from my student but he's one of the best violinists in New York City presently.

    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 have taken lessons with Allison McNeal for about four years. We've gone through Suzuki books 4 to 7, as well as expanding into other violin literature. I never thought I'd be able to play this well! Thank you Allison!

    I am an adult beginner and I really like Xingyu's teaching method. He knows exactly what problems I have and has many excellent ideas to teach me the basic but critical techniques effectively and efficiently. Plus, he is a patient and motivating teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a violin teacher!

    I've been taking violin and musicianship lessons with Jack . I can say he is a very responsible person who will help you to improve from different aspects. Under the instruction of him, I gained a lot of musicianship skills in advance before I went to study music in college. That helps me to integrate into intensive music classes in college. He's not only my teacher, he's more like a friend of mine. He gives many suggestions to you, helping you to solve problems. Taking lessons with him is very valuable to me.

    Very skilled and knowledgeable. Flexible in teaching approach to address goals of adult student and to adapt lessons accordingly. Positive reinforcement a plus, combined with post-lesson emails summarizing items to work on in preparation for the next lesson. Highly recommended for an adult seeking beginner or intermediate/advanced violin instruction.
