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.

As an active concert violinist, I have appeared with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Brockton Symphony and Quincy Symphony Orchestras, and enjoy frequent guest appearances with the Lowell and Waltham Philharmonic Orchestras.  While performing at The Universitat Mozarteum Akademie Salzburg, I was recently named Laureate for my execution of 21st century composer Lera Auerbach's 'T'filah' for Solo Violin. As an orchestral musician, I was Concertmaster of The Juilliard Orchestra, hold the Principal Second position in Solisti Ensemble, and was featured member of the critically acclaimed Axiom Ensemble.  As a founding member of The Moirae Ensemble, I  design and perform concert programs that feature contemporary women composers, the most recent of which includes two world premieres and will be presented at Barnard Hall as a part of their renowned concert series. I also habitually appear around the Tri-State area with such esteemed ensembles as Concerts on the Slope, New York Classical Players, and The New York Chamber Orchestra.  I graduated from The Juilliard School with a Bachelor and Masters Degrees as a student of Glenn Dicterow and Joel Smirnoff.

Instruments:

I have worked since 1998 teaching individual and group lessons to children and adults in violin, voice and elementary piano. Although I have specialized in teaching the Suzuki method for violin since 2002 (and viola shortly after), I have ample knowledge of other methods and approaches and have been able to "mix and match" successfully according to the individual needs of every student. My multi-phaceted background as a concert singer and instrumentalist allows me to create unique and imaginative experiences in my lessons, while still providing clear guidance and healthy discipline.I particularly enjoy the process of beginning with new students as young as 3 and taking them as far as they can go for as many years as life allows. But I am equally comfortable teaching at an advanced level taking students all the way to playing as soloists with orchestra, as well as preparing them for school and professional auditions in both voice and violin.  Being myself a performer who constantly seeks to polish the art of pedagogy makes for wonderful, inspiring lessons for myself and my studentsWhatever your goal maybe, let me help you reach it, and let's enjoy the process of falling in love with music- wherever that may take you!

    Our daughter has only been playing the piano since March. Tony replaced our other teacher who had a job transfer and could no longer teach. Tony is fun and encouraging. My daughter is playing Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and is playing the piano more than ever before. Very happy so far with Mr Tony

    I would like to thank Polina for the series of classical piano lessons I've taken recently. Polina is a fantastic teacher and a high class performer, and I'm really happy I had a chance to meet her! I believe anyone can benefit from the teaching method Polina is practicing regardless of the student proficiency - from beginners to advanced performers. It was a pleasure for me to study classical piano courses under the guidance of such an intelligent & professional teacher! Without doubt, my playing technique has improved a lot and I have signed up for the new classes online already.

    Andrew is very encouraging and uplifting, but also isn't afraid to tell you your weaknesses. Andrew also is super awesome with scheduling. Fits around your schedule all the time. He really knows what he is doing and can help you reach your goal in the time you would like to. Couldn't have gotten a better teacher, who continually helps me grow and pushes me.

    My son and I both take lessons with Micheal. My son started on the ukulele and recently started the guitar. He is excellent with children. Very patient and very intuitive to the child's ability. He is also an excellent teacher for adults. I had not touched my guitar in several years and in a couple months not only to I remember everything I forgot but I'm learning many new techniques and am a much better player than I've ever been.

    “Lynn has taught my daughter guitar for 9 years. She has always managed to keep her engaged and provide an exceptional learning experience. She tailors the lesson specifically to the student’s interests and abilities. She provides many opportunities for students to showcase their talents outside of lessons. We love working with Lynn.” Maureen Young, Dir. of Finance, Aug 2015

    Angela is a phenomenal teacher. She is full of charisma and is a joy to work with. Most of my experience with her has been focused on working in the Alexander Technique and she seems very knowledgeable in this study. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student. I have seen myself improve dramatically in a few short weeks with her guidance (and much practice of course!)

    Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.

    Cory is simply the greatest instructor ever! His 30 year plus teaching experience along with his knowledge of ever longer in music composition and performance make a real difference if you're in for learning the right way. Thank you Cory for teaching me not only the chords but also the history behind it and awesome tricks on getting better faster ;)

    Pavel is doing a great job with my 6 year old son. Pavel is doing a great job helping my son focus on technique and rhythm, which is something previous instructors weren't so successful with. Pavel is organized / structured / systematic, which is what my son needs now, but I hope he relaxes a bit as the lessons continue so that more "joy" comes through.
