The CD released from that tour by Sony Classical went on to reach Platinum status on the U.S. Classical music charts, and was hailed by the New York Times as “unabashedly lush…A beautifully performed survey of works”. The POA orchestra went on to perform in 2010 for the President of Mexico on national television, and again in Mexico City’s Auditorio National, for a sold-out audience of 10,000 people. A Massachusetts native, Sarah earned her Masters degree in 2009 from Manhattan School of Music as a student of Curtis Macomber, and her Bachelor of Music degree in 2007 from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, under the tutelage of Marilyn McDonald.

Marilyn S

Instruments:

I have had a great deal of experience with all ages and want to share my love for music with others. As long as the student is enjoying playing an instrument, progressing, my goal has been reached.

Vincent T

Instruments:

       I have studied with several professional, performing musicians, but most of my learning has come from books, magazines and listening. Listening is, quite simply, the best teacher you can have, provided you do it properly. I have played music since age eight, in school bands, jazz bands, blues, and rock bands. I also have written songs since age 10, and recorded numerous cd's of original music in various styles. I am currently the frontman in the Jersey Shore Blues Rock Tribute Band. I also play solo piano at hospitals and nursing homes. I work music as a full time job, and have never had a second thought about being a musician. I have studied numerous instruments and musical styles, as well as writing, recording, performance, history, criticism and theory.

Xinou W

Instruments:

I love the violin, and enjoy sharing this love with you all. I have been playing the violin for 20 years and have studied with Sally Thomas, Elmar Oliveira, and Stephen Majeske. In 2013, I graduated from Mannes Colege of Music in New York, with a Masters of Music degree in violin and Chamber Music. Over the years I have had the opportunity to play at Alice Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York, as well as Benidict Music Tent in Aspen Music Festival. I have had the great privilege to work with prominent conductors such as David Robertson, Gunthur Schuller, Robert Spano, David Zinman, and Hugh Wolff. I have been a mentor-fellow at Aspen Music Festival. During my time at Mannes, I served as concertmaster of the Repertory Orchestra and Mace Ensemble under Lowell Liebermann, under whom we gave the the New York Premiere of Paul Moravec's "Capital Unknowns". I have had the great honor to perform Tchaikovsky's sextet "Souvenir de Florence" with violinist James Ehnes in a special gala concert in New York.

More Information About Violin Lessons

As a student starts lessons they will need to provide their own instrument. While advanced students may choose to buy a violin, it is a good idea for beginners to look into rental programs. By renting, you are able to commit less financially, and you will be equipped with all the accessories you need. Renting also benefits children, as string instruments come in different sizes, and a child will most likely start on a small instrument. As the grow, they will need to increase the instruments size, and this switch can be done very conveniently if you are renting.
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.
Musika works with all ages and skill levels to help students reach their highest potential! Whether you are an adult beginner, or an advanced player, our teachers will work with you to further your skills, and reach any goals you may have. With customized lesson plans, and a convenient in home lessons option, adult students find lessons with Musika to be both successful and rewarding.
Young students will learn all aspects of playing their new instrument. All children will begin to read music, and learn how to handle their instrument properly, as well as start to develope their musicianship. Violins are a small instrument that can be comfortable for little hands. While most adults will play on a standard full size, the violin comes in smaller sizes as well and our teachers will be able to assist you on choosing the correct one.
