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!

I studied performance and education at LIU Post, in Brookville New York and Nassau Community College in Garden City New York. I have had many performance opportunities including Tilles Center, the John Cranford Adams Playhouse and various high schools in Nassau county with the Five Towns Symphony. I graduted in May of 2013 with my Bachelor's Degree in Music education and currently teach private lessons. I have studied under numerious accomplished cellists including Maureen Hynes, Benjamin Wolf, and Amy Camus. I have also participated in master classes with the Shanghai String Quartet.

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.

Noah B

Instruments:

I am extremely passionate about music and excited to pass my passion on to students.  I have been studying violin since I was 4 years old and it has always been a central part of my life. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University this past May with a BFA in Violin Performance and Physics.  I enjoy music of all styles and in addition to classical music I play rock and jazz.  I collaborate frequently with Trenton based rock artist Roy Orbitron.

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.
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.
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.
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.
