Introduction: In each of us, there is a spark that calls to be tended to and cultivated. Whether you are new to music and the violin, or a seasoned player looking for new direction and inspiration, I am here to help and guide in the kindling of that fire.
Hello! My name is Aaron Bernstein. I am a violinist and violist from the NY/NJ area. I have been teaching for over 15 years both in my studio and at private schools in NY state. I specialize in all levels, beginner to advanced, and work with all ages. I incorporate many styles and approaches to meet each player where they are. I do not believe in a rigid classical structure to build the musician but instead, follow my intuition and the interests of my students to guide our lessons. We are here, after all, to find the music that moves us!
I have been playing violin and viola for 30 years, teaching and performing throughout the tristate area. I am the conductor and strings teacher at Mountain Laurel Waldorf School and Green Meadow Waldorf School. I am actively performing with Newburgh Symphony and Dutchess Symphony.
