Featured Old tappan Violin Teachers

Robert P

Instruments:

I studied guitar with international performing artist Anna Maria Rosado and composition with American composer Annette Le Siege.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Classical Guitar Performance from New Jersey City University.  I have performed extensively in small venues throughout Vermont, and was a house musician for several seasons at the Yosemite Theater in Yosemite National Park, California.   

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.

Kelsey R

Instruments:

I recently graduated with honors from Westminster Choir College where I completed degrees in both Music Education and Music Theory and Composition. I am currently working as a music teacher for the West Windsor Plainsboro Regional School District and building my career as a performer. So far I have sung multiple times at top performance venues like Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center, and Lincoln Center. 

David M

Instruments:

I enjoy teaching those who wish to learn. The most important thing that a teacher can teach a student is fundamentals - i.e. the basics.  The fundamentals do one very important thing - enable the student to execute. When you get on stage you might be nervous, but I can guarantee you will know exactly what to do and that knowledge will calm you down enough to enjoy the experience. The musical aspect of playing, I believe, is something you either have or don't. I can coach you, of course, on what I believe is the way to play a phrase; however, in the end that really shouldn't be my job (nor anyone else's). 

Cynthia T

Instruments:

I'm a firm believer in the idea that music is the greatest gift that we can share with each other. I started playing the piano at the young age of three years old, with my great grandmother first showing me that ever important middle C. Ever since that moment my love for music has never stopped growing. At the age of eight I started learning the violin and since then, practicing and performing on both instruments has been the greatest experience. I studied under several extremely talented teachers over the years, and now am performing in professional orchestras in New York. Once your love of music begins growing, it will never stop!

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.
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.
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.
