Featured Barrington Violin Teachers

Artan S

Instruments:

I am a teacher with over 20 years experiencein Europe and USA.  My violin lessons are entertaining while providing a solid musical structure to build upon. I encourage and inspire my students to do their personal best in a creative, positive and enriching learning environment. I teach students of all ages  using a variety of teaching materials based on the individual students learning style. I enjoy teaching students at various stages in their development whether they are preparing for College or University auditions, studying for their own enjoyment or preparing to join a local community string ensemble or orchestra.

Farobag Homi C

Instruments:

Music Director of the Chicago Philharmonia Orchestra since 1985, Farobag has also served as Managing Director of the University of Chicago’s Performing Artists Series from 1990 through 2002 and principal conductor of its resident professional ensembles. A skilled interpreter of Baroque literature as well, Cooper continues in his capacity as Artistic Advisor to the Baroque Masterplayers, a virtuoso ensemble that concatenates period performance techniques with modern instruments thus creating a unique voice within the realm of 17th and 18th- century repertoire. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester, Farobag studied under Anastasia Jempelis, a pioneer of Suzuki violin pedagogy in the United States.

Jeannette H

Instruments:

I have over 12 years of teaching orchestra at a high school level and over 20 years of private lesson teaching instruction. I know that everyone has enough "talent" to play a musical instrument; I provide the precise instruction on how to approach violin/viola in order to grow your talent. I am comfortable communicating with children just learning to play and very much enjoy teaching adult beginners also. My joy is watching the eyes of a student as they realize that they are playing music... and it wasn't really all the hard, after all.

Phillip T

Instruments:

Phillip Triggs, viola, holds a Bachelor of Music from Chapman University Conservatory of Music as a student of Robert Becker and a Master of Music from Northwestern University as a student of Roland Vamos.  He has also attended the Aspen Music Festival and School as a student of Jeffrey Irvine and James Dunham.  His early violin studies were with Stephanie Wan, Rocky Lee, and William Fitzpatrick. He has performed with Pacific Symphony, Mozart Classical Orchestra, and was a member of Opera Pacific Orchestra.  Additionally, Mr. Triggs frequently performs with visiting ballet companies to the Los Angeles Music Center and Orange County Center for the Performing Arts, including San Francisco Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and Bolshoi Ballet.  He has also recorded for motion picture and Disney theme parks. A passionate educator, Mr. Triggs encourages his students to find musical solutions to technical problems.  His teaching posts have included Violin/Viola Instructor Mosaic School of Music, Violin/Viola The Salvation Army Pioneer School of Music, and Instructor of Viola for Non-Music Majors at Northwestern University.

Cecilia P

Instruments:

I am a South-american violinist and violin-music teacher who loves music, dancing, arts, nature, and animals. I am a social, kind, caring, persevering and self-disciplined person. In my country, I was the teacher of 25 lovely children and youth, with whom I created my own violin studio. It started only with 3 students, and after 9 years we were a wonderful group that performed in different recitals, festivals and trips around our country. Together we learned about violin, classical music, popular music, folk music, singing, etc., but most importantly we learned about sensitivity, sharing, self-discipline, respect, creativity and many other personal skills that music helps us learn in such a joyful way. Right now, after finishing my master’s degree in Boston, I am living in Chicago because my husband is studying his PhD at Northwestern University. I miss teaching and sharing my love for music with others, that is why I really want to find new students that want to join me in their musical journey.

More Information About Violin Lessons

When starting violin lessons, students will choose if they would like to buy or rent the instrument. Many beginners will choose the rental option as it is less of a financial commitment, and can be done on a month to month basis. When you rent a violin, you will be given everything you need to start lessons, the instrument, a case, and a bow. Almost all instrumental music stores will offer rental programs, and they can guide you in your choosing of the correct option.
When you choose in home lessons, you are choosing the most convenient way to add music to your life. By having the instructor come to your home you are saving time, money, and energy! Not only is this a convenient option for busy schedules, but it allows you to learn your instrument in the familiar, and comfortable space of your own home. Learning in an environment where you are at ease is beneficial for both children and adults.
All students are different, and that means all lessons will be different. Each teacher works to tailor their lesson plans around students specific needs and goals, all while teaching them the most important aspects of their instrument. Students will learn how to read music, develope musicianship, and how to play their instrument with proper technique. No two lessons will be the same as all students have different strengths and goals. If the student has a particular style or method they are looking to learn, Musika will find a teacher that will be able to accomodate those needs.
We love adult students! We have adults who are complete beginners, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
Children can start violin as early as age 4. Though there is a standard size for violins, they also come in smaller sizes which can be used by small children. As the students grow, they can move up in size, and the instrument can grow with them. Being one of the smallest members of the string family, the violin lends itself well to small hands. Any teacher, or music store professional can help you choose the correct size. During violin lessons, children will begin to learn how to handle the instrument correctly, read music, and develope their overall skills as a musician.
