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.

More Information About Violin Lessons

As you start violin lessons, there are a couple different options you can choose as a way to obtain an instrument. Some students can choose to buy, which would be most useful for advanced, adult players, but most beginning students will choose to rent. Renting can be done on a monthly basis and will provide you will everything you need for your lessons, as far as the instrument is concerned. It is best for children to rent, as they will need to start with a smaller instrument, and work up in size as they grow.
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.
Music lessons are tailored to the students specific needs. The teacher will work with each student individually to develope a lesson plan that ensures the most productivity. While working towards the students specific goals, there will be lessons in music theory, how to correctly handle the instrument, and how to develope the students own musicianship. While Musika does not mandate a particular style of teaching, if there is a method you are interested in we will do our best to match you with a teacher that specializes in that area.
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.
