Natalia S

Instruments:

I am a professional violinist and violin/viola teacher. I have over 12 years of experience teaching students of all ages (2-adult) and all levels. I truly love teaching and sharing my passion for music with others! Having studied violin since I was two and a half, I have learned that the instrument takes great patience. I am very patient and caring with all of my students. I also have high standards for my students, my goal is to guide them on their way to excellence. I usually teach using the Suzuki Method until the student is advanced enough to tackle repertoire outside of the Suzuki books. Along with Suzuki and other repertoire I use various etude and scale studies books to enhance technique. I emphasize ear training as well as note reading, posture, left hand technique, bow arm technique, and of course phrasing and musicality. Music is a beautiful part of life and I strive to share my knowledge of it with others.

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.

Nicholas D

Instruments:

I am a passionate musician and teacher who loves working with new violinists. There is nothing greater than seeing a child (or adult) begin the musical journey. In 2007, I graduated from SUNY Fredonia with a Bachelors of Arts after spending four years in intesive violin studies.  I am fortunate to have performed with many chamber orchestras and quartets over the years.

More Information About Violin Lessons

Music shops that sell violins can usually also work out violin rentals. This is best for smaller, short-scale violins that are designed for small children. For adults, either used or new violins will work just fine. The only factor to keep in mind is that used violins are sometimes sold as-is, meaning it may not be in the best condition. Our instructors are familiar with good violin maintenance techniques and can be of assistance.
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.
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.
