Experienced Music teacher of 8 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of their instrument and theory skills. I specialize in all styles. Typically, I use a variety of method books to pick from to meet the needs of the students. I also have many tools available to use during lessons.
My students have gone on to NYSSMA and on to college auditions successfully!

Danielle was a very intuitive teacher- she listened to my goals, and helped provide me with a clear path toward them, conquering some of the basics, scales, pentatonic, and such... but also some of the more advanced nuances like harmonics and vibrato. If you are trying to learn violin or fiddle, I'd recommend Danielle.

Musicking is meant for everyone - let's get started! My name is Christina Sack. I'm a 4th-year student of Music Education at the University of Connecticut. I love to give violin lessons that are completely personalized to YOU. Regardless of whether you are a complete beginner, would like tips on a specific technique, need a mock audition judge, want to improve your ear, you name it - I'm excited to meet you where you are at and point you in the right direction for success.

Fundamental to playing any genre of music is a firm foundation in technique. Students can expect to receive positive and constructive feedback about their performance in each lesson, along with demonstrations and practical suggestions for further practice. If you have a particular method of study that you wish to pursue or a book that you would like to use (Suzuki, Essential Elements, O'Connor, etc), I'm glad to work with you within your method of choice. If you don't have one, that's also fine - I'm happy to ...

I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

Private Viola Teacher

I've been teaching viola for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, community orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods, Barbara Barber books and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

"Zachary is a great instructor and friendly , you won't feel the stress of a regular class.I can say that I am always excited to learn because of the motivation he give. I wasn't sure at the beginning that the online lessons would work effectively and that I will see great results. I have already had 5 sessions and still have 15 left. He is so patient and gives a clear guidance to improve your level. Each week there is a prepared plan of what we will focus on depending on the performance which means you take the full use of every minute in the class. Also ,the weekly homework or exercises given helps you to know what to do to improve between each class.

Totally recommend"

I’ve been taking Viola lesson with Susanna for over four years…including various breaks for health issues (two strokes, carpal tunnel surgery)…and Susanna always knows where to restart lessons.

You can stop looking for a strings teacher now, because you’ve just found the best there is!"
