Mariko has been my daughters teacher for a while now. I love her attitude and patience. She’s an amazing violinist and pushes my daughter to practice more but is still so kind if something comes up. I can’t recommend her enough. I also adore doing the lessons online, we have a lot going on and the convenience can not be beat.Jul 19, 2018
I have been learning how to play violin with Mariko for almost 3 years. Mariko is an amazing teacher with a lot of patience. She has taught me the basics from how I should stand, how to position my arms and the proper way of holding a violin. She charges a reasonable amount for how much you learn within just one session, especially in NYC. Normally, you would feel intimidated by a teacher but I have never felt that way around Mariko. She has welcomed me with a warm smile in the beginning of every lesson and has encouraged me to continue practicing. Even if you have to play the same piece 10+ times she will continue to be patient and help you through every note. I highly recommend Mariko.Feb 6, 2017Verified

Payment methods accepted
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Students traveling to me: 30 minutes- $40 45 minutes- $50 60 minutes- $65 Traveling to the student will increase pricing by $10 to cover for transportation. Cancellations within 24 hours of the lessons will result with a penalty fee. Please note that cancellations cause inconvenience to the teacher's schedule. Occasional misses due to sickness or unforeseen circumstances are completely understandable.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For beginners, I always start out with the first few lessons being solely focused on positioning and posture. Without this solid foundation, it is easy to get injured. For experienced students, I will decide if they are a visual or auditory learner. Some will be one or the other, or a little bit of both. The outline of lessons changes depending on this aspect.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Classically trained, I have been playing the violin for over 18 years. I graduated from the Juilliard School with a Bachelor in Music in 2017 and am pursuing a Masters in Music at the Mannes School as a full scholarship student.
