Introduction: I have over 20-years of experience playing the violins and over 10-years teaching music. I've experienced every type of performance environment and performed all over the world. Additionally, I've attended every type of music festival and learned from world-class musicians. My expertise expands beyond just the violin and includes piano, clarinet, conducting, and composition. Music and playing is very personal so I believe 1 on 1 lessons to be extremely effective and I make it so. I make sure each lesson the students hear improvements and see progress and achieve their own goals the best way possible.

Violin Lessons

Esther likes his professional teaching tactics. My daughter tries to practice the way he taught like how to hold a bow and how to use fingers to play professionally.

Violin Lessons

I really enjoyed my first initial lesson with Fedor, and look forward to becoming a regular student learning violin and how to master it with him. Even with current conditions which affect going out in public, we had a Skype call and I received immense value from it.

Violin Lessons (for adults)

Fedor did a fantastic job with my teenage son in just a few weeks of lessons. He is technically very strong and gives good advice to students, he has a clear understanding of each individual's strengths and areas of improvement. He is flexible and very supportive. My son who has had a few teachers before, loves working with Fedor.

Took out time to help me get my personal violin for the classes. He's very patient, has loads of experience and he does music full time.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    1hr – $120 45min – $100 30min – $70 Get your first 4 lessons package and get 25% off - $360

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First I start with getting to know your experience so far with playing and music in general, then I hear you play if you’re not brand new. From there I jump right into helping by giving exercises and materials for practice and ways to improve, whatever will fit your goals best. If you’re brand new and need an instrument, I’ll either provide a violin for you or recommend the best affordable method for obtaining one and teach everything about taking care of it in lessons.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied at Juilliard with Naoko Tanaka and many extremely successful musicians throughout my studies. If you’d like my full CV, go to fedorouspensky.com in the about me section.
