Alissa K

Instruments:

I am a recent graduate from Millikin University eager to spread my love for the classical violin. I have a degree in Commercial Music and Music Business, along with minors in communication and entrepreneurship. I just recently started my own business, Strings Attached, where we play for weddings and business events. I started in the Suzuki Program in Wheaton, played in numerous different orchestras since then and now have 1 year experience in teaching beginners. I have a passion for classical music and am ready to pass it along to interested students.

Kassia F

Instruments:

I have known since a very young age that music would always be the biggest part of my life. I grew up studying the violin and piano intensively, and eventually decided the violin was the instrument I wanted to focus on. Performing has always been a love of mine, but in the past few years I have found that my true passion lies in teaching. In 2013, I graduated from DePaul University wtih a Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance. In 2009, I co- founded a program which provides music instruction to underserved children. I have been an instructor for this program for the past four years.

Clifford G

Instruments:

I'm a well motivated instructor who enjoys working with students of any age. During and after college I found it rewarding to work with students in a classroom and private setting.Over the past 40 years my students recieved the same in depth musical education that I recieved with an added bonus due to my success and expirience as freelance musician.

Annarita T

Instruments:

I am a passionate and driven violinist who enjoys enriching the lives of others with the joy of music. I graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in music. I began performing with the Fox Valley Orchestra during my second year of university and continue to perform with them today. On top of that, I also teach violin at a Chicago Public School through an El Sistema program.

More Information About Violin Lessons

When lessons begin, students will need to acquire a violin. While most adults will start on a standard, full size, many children will start with a smaller model. As a child grows, the instrument will need to grow with them, and this makes renting an instrument a great option. Any music store staff, or Musika teacher will be able to help you in deciding the right size instrument for the student. Renting can be done on a monthly basis, and allows for less of a financial commitment.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's violin lessons may include, but are not limited to: how to hold the violin and bow, Different bowing techniques: detache, legato, staccatto, how to read music, musicianship skills to aid in playing in tune, developing a natural, tasteful vibrato for sustained notes, and most importantly, learn to have fun playing the violin!
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.
Our earliest recommended starting age for violin is 4, although exceptions can certainly be made for a younger student who is capable of handling the strings properly and who has sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. A teacher can help you decide which size instrument to choose depending on the age and height of your child.
