Audrey
As an adult learner who has always been interested in the violin, I have really enjoyed my experience with Mary-Elizabeth. She is a positive, patient, and encouraging teacher. We have been doing virtual lessons together and I am very impressed with how well she is able to offer corrections to my sound, posture, bow placement, etc... through a computer screen. It just goes to show how knowledgeable she is at her craft. I highly recommend Mary-Elizabeth for violin lessons.

If I were to say 15 years on the violin, that would be a shocking time. I did earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Music where I received most of my education in both violin and piano. In my perspective, the violin is such an intricate instrument and I am blessed to work with students in wanting to learn violin. It’s true where putting the hard work in violin takes you where you need to be. It does require Practice! I am willing to work with the student and help them grow in advancing this instrument. Let’s keep in touch!

We had the privilege of having Ms. Angelica as my 10 year old's piano and violin teacher. She was patient, funny and an excellent music teacher. She knew exactly what to do to keep my daughter interested and engaged. My daughter looked forward to every session she had with her.

Let's Play Music!
Many people think that learning an instrument is a long and grueling process that takes years before being any fun, but this couldn't be any farther from the truth!

Especially in this day and age with so many resources available, it does not have to take decades to reach a fun and satisfactory level of musicianship.

What you are looking for is someone who can teach you what YOU want to know.

My approach to music teaching is fully CUSTOMIZABLE.
Instead of following a strict curriculum, every lesson is tailored specifically to your goals and interests.

Not interested in reading notes? No problem.
Only want to cover your favorite pop songs? You got it.
Trying to write your own stuff? Let's focus there!

Whatever makes music fun for you, you can count on me to help you find less

About Avenira

What is it that sparks your unique musical expression? That is what I'm here to help you find and pursue. Maybe you want yourself, or your child, to know everything there is to know about music? Perhaps you'd like to learn to how to play your favorite songs? Or do you have your owns song

Frederick
First lesson and I've already learned how to teach myself one of my favorite songs (which I can now play a few hours after my lesson) and some helpful music theory!
Joy
My 16-year-old ---who had not practiced for over a year---is absolutely loving her lessons with Ms. Avenira! With only 3 lessons, I am now seeing the spark for playing the violin return to my daughter's eyes. Ms. Avenira is meeting my daughter "where she is" and truly customizing lessons to move her forward. She provides detailed updates for each lesson, and I could not be happier with my investment. Excellent teacher.
Michelle P.
Avenira really connected with my 14 year old, while our daughter has always been enthusiastic to learn an instrument, putting in the practice and the work has been a challenge in the past. Avenira's format, which allows flexibility for how the student learns best, is really working. My daughter has been practicing every night (unprompted by us), and is really excited abut her next lesson with Avenira. She also loves that she can learn both guitar and piano with Avenira, since she is interested in both. Avenira was very motivating, complimenting our daughter for being focused and for doing a great job during the lesson. Definitely would rate Avenira A+++++++!!

Jacquelin is a wonderful teacher! Especially patient, at first I was worried that I did not have any foundation will be too difficult, but she explained very clearly, and even used the piano to assist in explaining! Very responsible teacher, I highly recommend!

"I feel like I have learned a lot with Mr.Cameron. I used to go to a different teacher but this teacher has taught me more in a shorter amount of time. He has changed the way I look at the violin and the way I learn it too. I learned a lot because of the easy and the funny way he teaches me!!!!"

"Mr. Eugene is an excellent instructor. He is informative, positive, and able to accurately assess the needs of the student. We didn't miss a beat with the virtual lesson, I felt it was as good if not better than any face to face lesson. We would highly recommend Mr. Eugene for violin (or piano), his extensive music knowledge and experience added an invaluable foundation to the instruction. Thank you!"
