Featured Lyndhurst Violin Teachers

Sarah F

Instruments:

Sarah, violin, has performed throughout North America, South America and Europe. An avid orchestral player, Sarah performs regularly in Manhattan’s most elite concert venues, including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Merkin Hall, and Alice Tully Hall. Sarah currently holds the position of Assistant Concertmaster of Astoria Symphony, Principal Second Violin of One World Symphony, Assistant Principal Second Violin of Metro Chamber Orchestra, and Section Violin of Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, Distinguished Concerts International New York, Leora Chamber Orchestra (formerly known as the New York Chamber Virtuosi), Westchester Chamber Symphony, Mimesis Ensemble, Ubuntu-Shruti Orchestra, Ensemble 212, Ossia Symphony, Bronx Opera Orchestra, and Artemis Chamber Ensemble. Notable engagements include touring from 2009-2010 as Concertmaster of the Broadway North American Tour of Camelot, and performing in Mexico with Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas on the Mi Alma Mexicana tour, celebrating the 2010 Mexican Bicentennial. 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. Sarah has played in master classes for Sylvia Rosenberg and Mark Steinberg, and performed with such esteemed conductors as Kurt Masur, Robert Spano, Sir Simon Rattle, and David Zinman. Sarah currently resides in New York City, where she enjoys freelancing and teaching. With fourteen years of experience as a violin teacher, Sarah enjoys working with children and adults of all ages. In her private violin studio, she nurtures students with all degrees of experience to hone their craft with patience, kindness, and enthusiasm. A Suzuki registered teacher and member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, Sarah has seen her beginning students progress while developing pride and enjoyment in regards to their playing. Her adult students benefit by integrating technique from the Galamian school, along with Carl Flesch, Josef Gingold, and Adolf Busch.

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.

Kathleen S

Instruments:

Music has played a vital, formative role in my life for as long as I can remember. My parents are both excellent musicians.  I started piano lessons at the age of 5 and began studying violin when I was nine. Although I am classically trained and have extensive orchestral experience as a violinist and violist, I was a founding member of an Irish group and several early music ensembles, performed with folk and classical guitarists, and played in a rock and roll nightclub band. I continue to play in many churches and synagogues, do strolling violin work, perform jazz standards, and act as lead violin in an internationally acclaimed big band. I am flexible as a player and teacher and love all types of music. I see music as a wonderful means of communication and a gift to be shared!

Sarah K

Instruments:

Music communicates what words cannot.  My teaching philosophy is based on an open dialogue, creating a comfortable, fun, and curious learning environment.  As an active soloist and orchestral musician, I have appeared with the Boston Pops Orchestra, the Brockton Symphony and Quincy Symphony Orchestras, and enjoy frequent appearances with the Lowell and Waltham Philharmonic Orchestras and such esteemed ensembles as the Poisson Rouge Ensemble, New York Classical Players, and most recently, the Moirae Ensemble.  I was Concertmaster of The Juilliard Orchestra, as well as a member of Solisti Ensemble, New York Classical Players, and the critically acclaimed Axiom Ensemble. I graduated from The Juilliard School with a Bachelor and Masters Degrees as a student of Glenn Dicterow and Joel Smirnoff.

Beatrice N

Instruments:

I am a freelance musician and educator from Yorktown Heights, New York. I have a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Montclair State University. Over the years, I have performed in many major cities such as New York City, New York, Vienna, Austria and Quebec, Canada. Throughout my career as a performer, I have played in many orchestral ensembles such as the Surflight Pit Orchestra, Montclair State University’s Orchestra,  the Greater Westchester Youth Symphony in New York, the Adelphi Orchestra, the New Jersey Youth Orchestra, and the Garden State Orchestra. I am skilled in performing in different styles of music as well such as Baroque, Classical, and Contemporary. I have  studied under names such as Mary Ann Mumm, Boris Tseitlin, Jesse Mills, and the Shanghai String Quartet members including, Nicholas Tzavaras (cello); Ti-Wen Jiang (violin); Weigang Li (violin); and Honggang Li (viola).

More Information About Violin Lessons

Most beginning students will start with a violin rental. This is a great option because it is less of a financial commitment than buying a new instrument, and it allows for flexibility in the size. The sizing is important, especially when it comes to children, as they will usually start out with a smaller instrument than is considered the adult standard. When you are beginnin the renting process it is important to have the student present so they can be fit for the right size. Our teachers will also be able to guide you in your instrument choosing.
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.
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.
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.
