Private Violin Teacher

I am a professional violinist and violist in the Boston area. I am a graduate of the New England Conservatory where I have studied with Miriam Fried, Donald Weilerstein, and Martha Katz. I have performed extensively throughout my life as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player on both the violin and viola in a variety of professional ensembles including substitute viola work with the Borromeo String Quartet. I draw from this performing background to teach my students of all ages and abilities.

I currently act as Adjunct Instructor of Violin and Viola at Merrimack College, where I serve as a primary instrumental teacher to enrolled students. I have also acted as the primary violin teacher for Main Street Music, LLC, in Waltham. Additionally, I run a private studio of approximately 20 students as young as 6 and as old as 60. Of these, some never touched an instrument before our first lesson, and some are serious conservatory-bound musicians intending to make a career as a ...

Teaching private and ensemble lessons for 10+ years has developed my knowledge of how to work with students to build excellent musicianship and fluid violin skills. Along with the technical aspects, students' enjoyment of the process is paramount. This is achieved through purposeful preparation for each new tier of achievement so that the learning unfolds naturally.

I enjoy having Evelyn as a violin instructor. She is very knowledgeable and expresses instruction in a concise and easy to understand way. She is very kind. I am an adult learner, and Evelyn is very understanding that sometimes practice time gets minimized due to life responsibilities. She is encouraging and I would recommend her as an instructor for any age.

Private Violin Teacher

HI!
My name is H. Samuel Antunes, and I am a professional violin player and conductor!

I am specialized in Suzuki Method, but I also work with the classical methodology as well.
I have 12 years of experience teaching the violin, and I am happy to say that my students are great violinists!

I have extensive experience performing as a classical violinist in solo, chamber, and orchestral music. I have been playing the violin since the age of 8 and have participated in many well-known music programs. As a teacher, my focus is on learning classical violin technique in order to produce the best sound, while allowing the student to pick their repertoire based on their musical preferences, however always encouraging exploration of the classical genre!

Private Violin Teacher

Violin is the air I breathe and I love teaching it! While I make most of my money performing and improvising on the violin, I have classical training and I take the pedagogy of music and specifically the violin as a very serious responsibility because of how it has shaped my life both in health and in injury. Don't worry, we still have a lot of fun in lessons :)

I tailor my approach to the needs of each individual student I have. (I recently found out I'm good at teaching online so I'm taking this site more seriously now) Unless you are an advanced player looking to improvise, we will likely begin my devising some exercises to work on posture and technical foundation based on your needs. If you are a complete beginner or are seeking lessons for your child, then we will start at the beginning :)

Young students taking online lessons must have a parent in the room to take practice notes (I will help you with what to write) and that parent or their partner must be willing to help guide

Daniel is such a great instructor. We began at home/in-person lessons for our son and Daniel immediately connected with him. He made the lessons fun and absorbable, such that we saw progression each week. The lessons went so well that when we purchased a home over an hour away, we decided to try online lessons, and everything is going just as well!
Karisa
Daniel does a wonderful job making learning an instrument fun. The kids look forward to lessons each week and he caters to their individual strengths and skill levels.

"Donna came highly recommended by an employee at a nearby music store. She has been great at engaging my teenage daughter in her violin lessons - both with continuing the Suzuki program, and diversifying into fiddle music. Donna is patient and fun and seeks to lead through inspiration, which works really well for my daughter, who is talented but not particularly disciplined about practice. My daughter always looked forward to lessons with Donna - even on Saturday mornings! When we moved to online lessons because of the Covid stay-at-home order, Donna kept the lessons interesting and they have had a nice rapport. Donna has a way of fitting a lot of instruction into a lesson without it feeling boring or labored. She's really helped my daughter appreciate music, not just play the violin."

The mind is a powerful thing, and the physical effects that nerves can have on the body are sometimes overwhelming.
