You will be guided by me through method books and also use supplemental materials I create to help you advance. You will learn the basic 5 positions of the instrument to increase your sounding range. You will learn orchestra skills including following a conductor and articulation and intonation, styles of expression, and rhythm. I have been teaching violin for 7 years. My students have won seats in school orchestras and spots in various music schools. I want to be your next instructor.

I learned a ton in my first lesson! Mark is very knowledgeable. He was able to break musical concepts down which made it easier to understand. He was very positive, which helped stay positive!

Private Violin Teacher

As a graduate of The Juilliard School and a former member of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, I have extensive experience performing as a classical violinist and violist in solo, chamber, and orchestral music. I have been playing the violin since the age of 5 and have participated recently in many well known music programs such as the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, the Music Academy of the West, New York String Orchestra Seminar, and Aspen Music Festival. I have experience teaching in violin sections in orchestra and group classes through the Tufts Community Music Program. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I encourage learning by ear and emphasize the importance of efficient and organized practice. In a lesson with me, I would focus 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!

Students can expect a relaxed, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for learning. The violin can be an intimidating instrument- you will make a lot of unpleasant sounds before you start sounding great- and that's okay! I'll be there to guide you and help you reach your goals.

If you're already an experience player, you can expect me "workshopping" your technique. We will analyze your form, practice patterns, and playing style, to ensure that you are growing and improving from the moment we begin. I will push you to become the most expressive player that you can become, but at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

What young students can expect:

- Preparing for entry into school orchestra
- Polishing up school orchestra repertoire
- Learning new material and scales
- Perfecting their technique
- Preparing for NYSSMA
- Preparing college audition tapes (I do have the ability to record these as well)
- Learning to play with confidence
- Learning vibrato

"Very natural in working with my two kids (with two very different personalities, I might add). They’re at different experience levels and Ms. W. was able to adapt easily and determine what each needed to grow in their individual musical ability. She sets high expectations in the most authentically positive way that makes my kids want to do their best. Very pleased that we found her. My oldest is already talking about going to music school “just like Ms. W!” She knows her stuff and is a breath of fresh air—very affordable and flexible with her schedule, too."

I've just had my fifth violin lesson with her. She's patient, knowledgeable, and all-around a lovely person. She helped me come back to violin so fast. I enjoyed every lesson with her.
