Whether you're a beginner or an advanced violinist preparing for an audition, whether your lesson takes place online or in my Nashville studio, I seek to help meet the goals of each student on their journey learning the violin. With 24 years experience as a member of a professional symphony orchestra, I know firsthand how important it is to learn how to play in a way that feels comfortable, without muscle tension. Developing good habits while having fun learning the essentials describes a typical lesson. If you have a favorite song you'd like to learn, feel free to bring it to the lesson!

About Kirsten

I'm a professional violinist in Nashville, TN. I graduated from DePaul university in Chicago with a Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance. I was also a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, where I received training from the world's top conductors to become a professional orchestral musician.

Me and my daughter had a great experience with Kirsten! She is very warm, flexible, and has a friendly, professional teaching style. An overall lovely person who is very talented at her craft. Would definitely recommend!

Kirsten Mitchell and I first met in a classroom at Austin Peay University where she was teaching a beginners violin class with individual instruction. Nearly all of her students turned out to be teenagers. Retired, I had already turned 65.
Over time, and with patient, coaching, and encouragement from Kirsten, I have learned to play several
Bach pieces, among others. Each new work requires that yet another skill or technique be learned. We have made our way from great simplicity to greater complexity, each step requiring more control and capacity.
How did we do that? Examples! When my attempts at discovery came short, Kirsten could always provide examples so matter-of-fact that they seldom intimidated. Just try it; just do it! It’s like learning from a big sister or parent who only desires your success and would do what it takes to accomplish that.
There have been times when my vote would have been for her to leave violin study to someone who had a brighter future. But, Kirsten seemed to sense that, and found understanding words and suggestions that turned my outlook towards optimism, and had me reaching deeper into myself to get through that dry spell.
Play squeaky? “Listen to this, and play along with me; listen to my tone and see if you can match it. Your F’s are a little high; need to be flatter. Move your finger a little on the string. Let’s play it together. See the spacing between second and third fingers here? Hold your bow this way and keep your fingers flexible. Watch how my hand works, then you try it. “ And it goes on, and on. Kirsten never seems to tire of coaching and mentoring.
What a contrast. An old guy with modest capabilities being taught by a thorough professional that makes her living with the NSO. A professional musician who can shrink the gulf between what she can do so well and what I struggle to learn, but always a friendly adult who can teach as though it is all that really mattered.
We revere and recognize those who enrich our lives, especially our teachers. They help us reach our goals. Kirsten Mitchell is one of the most memorable people I’ve met.

Music can be a very intimate practice. To share, create and collaborate can be challenging if not fostered in the beginning of musical education. Lending students a safe and educational place to create can lead to great confidence that spans all areas of life and study. Because of this, I encourage involvement in the community where possible. For instance, I most recently had my violin students collaborate with the local youth guitar orchestra to perform a small concert series. I challenged my students to ideate and take a hands on approach to arranging the music. The relationships they built were forever lasting, the skills the gained were expansive and each witnessed their own improvement with excitement. Engagement fosters a higher-level of learning and development.

Fostering creativity leads to development but it can only grow from the fundamentals. The more tools in the box, the more one can create. Some discipline is needed to gain the understanding necessary to reach any ...

Are You Making the Most of Your Violin Practice?

Gifted musicians don't appear from nowhere fully-formed and ready to take to the concert platform.  For every 45-minute concerto or 90-minute recital you hear, hours of hard work have gone into every note, every phrase, and even how the music is approached, learned, and memorized! It may seem strange to say that proper practice is the most nerve-wracking element of mastering your violin, but if you don't know how to structure the session, how can you ever be sure that you're working on the rig …
