Great Violin Lessons with a Music Education you can take to any instrument!
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 the practice session daily between lessons. I look forward to working with you!
About Daniel L.

Hi! My name is Daniel and I have been playing the violin since I was 6 years old. I first plugged in to play with a band at 16. I have classical training and have studied with members of the Minnesota Orchestra (a top ten global orchestra), as well as international soloist, Ittai Shapira. I'm from Minnesota and lived and played in NYC for 8.5 years. I have played in an Orchestra at the Barclays Center to introduce one of the biggest hip-hop crews of all time, I have played in rock bands, I have played in subway stations, on the street to pay rent and everything in-between. I study the violin actively with a plan every day for my own growth and I am able to bring that ever deepening understanding to my lovely students. I LOVE TEACHING!!

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!

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.

This was a phenomenal course taught by Stacia Spencer about how to give young children, and beginning students more generally, a healthy foundation to begin playing the violin.
