Hello! I've been performing for 21 years and teaching for 15 years. Teaching has always been a passion for me! Whether you're an adult trying the violin or viola for the first time, or a dedicated student aiming to major in music, I can adapt my approach to suit your needs. I will help you build confidence in your playing through presenting attainable goals each week, while also providing appropriate challenges. I aim to help you feel comfortable and natural as you play by prioritizing proper posture and technique.

I have a Master's degree from the Peabody Conservatory in Violin Performance with an emphasis in pedagogy. I have performed in the U.S.A. and Europe, with well-known artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Yo-Yo Ma, Itzahk Perlman, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. My teacher training includes the Suzuki method (registered for books 1-5) and the Mark O'Connor method (certified for books 1-2).

My hope is that the violin or viola becomes a constant source of inspiration and ...

Hollis has been my violin instructor for over a year. I'm an adult beginner student and have truly enjoyed learning with her and am quite happy with my progress in the first year. She's very positive and has a keen ability to pick up subtle issues with my technique that always make a big difference in my playing once I apply/correct them. She does an excellent job of keeping my focused and my love for the violin continues to grow with each lesson. Whether 4yr old or 50+ yrs old, I highly recommend her.

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 :)

Private Violin Teacher

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!
Lou
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.

Kelvin is an excellent violin teacher. The violin lessons are professional and educational as well as fun easy and exciting. When Kelvin perceive something that needs to be corrected or something that I need to work on, he does it with such helpful analogies and simple instructions that it is easy for me to work on my skills and correct the problem. After each lesson, I always leave with more violin knowledge and techniques than I came with.

my daughter was a first time learner with the violin and was lucky enough to get Jessica at a local school she was teaching at. My daughter learned sooooooo much and sooooo quickly that we were devasted when we found out that she would be moving back to Baltimore... We loved her so much that we have her on a lesson by lesson basis when she is in town around our area :) She is reliable, affordable and made the lesson a blast for my 6 year old... you will be lucky to get her expertise :)"

Violin Tips: Stiff Shoulders and Arm Pain

Playing the violin should be fun - not a pain! Some arm fatigue is normal when you're first starting out, but anything more than that may be a sign of poor posture, technique or instrument placement. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you practice and play... 1. Relax. Many beginner players tense up their shoulders, arms or wrist without even realizing it, which can cause a lot of problems. Just relax! Focus on your breathing, but also don't lose your posture. 2. Check your techni …
