Mark has been very flexible in scheduling and very patient in explaining theory. As an adult new to violin I think he has been great in terms of explaining new concepts and being incredibly encouraging. He is also patient and realistic in his expectations of students. Greatly recommend.

Mark was very knowledgeable, funny, and patient, he really cares about his students. I’m glad that he Was referred to me by take lessons.

I came to Mark with utterly no background in the violin, wanting to start as an adult learner, and I can't imagine a better teacher than Mark. Mark is helping me gain crucial fundamentals while also learning fun pieces to strengthen those elements and encouraging me to select pieces, too.
I also like that he incorporates some music theory into his lessons.
Finally, I feel like becoming a violinist now, as an adult, isn't as crazy as I worried it might be since I have Mark to teach me.

Philip is an excellent teacher and gave me very heloful pointers on my technique. I am an advanced player and have performed semi-professionally several times but hadn't learned proper technique in the past.

I plan to continue with him regularly to improve my technique and skill level.
Kennadi S.
Philip was so friendly and patient, and made my 7 year old very comfortable with her first lesson. He really knew how to speak on her level and his instruction was very positive and motivating. My daughter left the lesson very excited to start practicing what he showed her, and we can't wait till the next lesson!

Private Violin Teacher

A versatile musician with over ten years' teaching experience. I focus on building a strong technique so we can find students' unique artistic voice together!

Students of mine study standard concertos, Bach, Suzuki materials, and scales. They also work on fiddle and jazz tunes, improvisation, and pop songs. The most important thing is to find what lights a spark in each student!

About Zachary

I am a violinist and violist with experience performing and studying all over the world. I am a trained classical musician, but I also have a passion for improvisation, hip hop, pop, jazz, and fiddle music! My strengths lie in building students' technical foundation while helping them find their art

Zachary is astute, professional, clear in communication, and a compassionate and effective teacher. I have had violin, cello, and viola instructors for my children for 15 years, and Zachary is among the best. There are a few things you look for in an instructor:
1. That they make an honest assessment.
2. That they make a plan, communicate it to the student, and stick to it.
3. That they work with what the student brings to the lesson in terms of skill.

Zachary took my daughter in quickly, was able to assess where she was and put together an effective plan for her. I noticed the improvement immediately and my daughter was inspired to practice.

Highly recommended.
Greg
I decided that I wanted to learn how to play an instrument much later in life than most. On top of the late start, I knew little to nothing about music. All of these factors discouraged me for a long time and some teachers I've tried added to that anxiety. One day I came across Zachary's profile and decided to give it one more chance , little did I know it would be one of the single greatest decisions I've ever made for myself. Coming to the table with as little knowledge as I had, including not being a young kid, was not a problem at all for Zachary. He has an ease about him when he teaches and is always patient and kind. Never once did he talk down to me or make me feel like something was impossible.
If you have a chance to have him as your teacher, you will not regret it. Let him help you learn, improve, and bring out the very best in you like he did with me.
Maria J.
I love Zachary's teaching method. He is very friendly and easy to understand. He is very passionate about teaching and it shows. I have progressed a lot after only a few lessons, and I will continue to take lessons from him. I highly recommend him :)

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

"My 11 yr old son has been playing violin for a while with the same teacher, and we decided to change teachers to learn other techniques and to pique his interest. We have been with Tigran for almost two months now and there has been a significant
improvement with my son's playing. He seem to acquire back his enthusiasm and passion for playing. He plays with our community Youth Orchestra on the 1st violin
and sits on the 4th chair before starting with Tigran, now he was advanced to the 2nd chair. We are grateful to Tigran for his patience and time. He is very accommodating with his schedule and goes out of his way in teaching my son, on top of it all he is very professional. We would highly recommend him as a great violin teacher."

"I am in my mid-40's and have had experience taking private lessons for various instruments throughout my life. Autumn is the best private music instructor I have had the pleasure of working with, going back to my childhood. She is very knowledgeable and has the experience and education necessary to help make her students successful.

Her methods are challenging yet encouraging. Violin has been the most challenging instrument I have attempted, yet Autumn is able to get concepts and techniques across to help me to progress.

I highly recommend Autumn D. for prospective students that are serious about learning to play the instrument. Her lessons include necessary elements from theory and sight-reading to technique.
