I began studying the recorder in Israel at the age of five. Keenly interested in music, I embarked on my lifelong love of the violin at age seven when I began violin studies with Leon Asa. After emigrating to the United States in 1958, I continued my early violin studies with the late Emily Cleve Gregerson of Omaha, Nebraska. In 1967, while an undergraduate at the University of Chicago, I was accepted as an advanced violin student by Elliot Golub, who was at the time a member of the Contemporary Chamber Players at the University of Chicago under Ralph Shapey, and a founder of the acclaimed Music of the Baroque series in Chicago. In 1968, I auditioned and was accepted with scholarship to Dartmouth College as a participant in the Convocation of the Arts summer program. Upon my return to Chicago, I studied with the late Morris Gomberg, then Chairman of the Strings Division at the Chicago College of Performing Arts/Roosevelt University. My studies with Mr.Gomberg were interrupted in 1969 when he stopped teaching due to illness.  In the years following, I began to study the chamber music literature, participating in a number of chamber music workshops and master classes including programs at Mannes College of Music/The New School, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Music Mountain, Vassar College, and VMAC (Vermont Music and Art Center). My coaches have included Ida Kavafian [The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center], violinist Maria Radicheva (Manhattan School of Music); Yuri Vodovoz (violin) at Mannes College of Music/The New School. I currently perform with several groups including the Radiance Chamber Ensemble, Society of Musical Arts, Musica Dolce, baroque music ensemble of the Highland Park Recorder Society; the Metropolitan Orchestra of NJ, Baroque Orchestra of NJ and State Repertory Opera Orchestra.

My students cover a wide range, from bluegrass to concert classical. The correct technique is, in my experience, the one that will be able to underlay any musical style. For example, if the left hand is flexible and well-formed, then blues, Bach and flamenco all will come more easily. This core is essential, because even at the most beginning stages, the student should be able to play with musical expression. Books I commonly use are Suzuki, Parkening, and Essential Elements--but I equally commonly use other materials, depending on the student's interest.

I am a (born in 1987) Czech classical pop and crossover violinist and recording artist, DJ, and composer. Born into a musical family and a traditional culture teeming with music and dances, I was always taking my place on center stage. I presented choreographed violin performances, live and in music via my recording label Tomorrow Island and performs a variety of music styles, from classical music to deep house. In 2008, I began my concert series in Long Island, where I am known as the 'jazz violinist'. I have released two albums, an EP, several singles and toured many states across the US and Europe. Aside from original work, my discography contains covers of songs by other musicians and various soundtracks. Since 2011 I've performed also as a house DJ. My compositions matured from my earlier musical career as a band leader and the influence of diverse music perfected his style. Since 2008 I lives in New York.

 I am experienced in using Suzuki, Indiana String Pedagogy, some Kodaly, and my own method, to foster learning, for students of all ages. I have been teaching children ages 5-18, and adult students, for almost ten years now. Working at Fairview Elementary (Bloomington IN) gave me a great introduction to group teaching in a classroom, which I hope to soon be able to build upon. I also have experience tutoring college students at the Oberlin Conservatory in music theory, ear training, and German. I emphasize technique, efficiency in individual practicing, a strong curriculum of both repertoire and etudes, and having FUN!  I will back whatever my students want to do, whether that be school band, concerts, solo recitals, competitions, college auditions, and more. Teaching truly is a life-long passion of mine.

I am a singer, violinist, composer and educator who is passionate about teaching and believes in sharing my joy for music with students of all ages. With a training in Indian Classical from an early age and a degree in Western Contemporary and Classical music from Berklee College of Music, some of the highlights of my career include performing with the Grammy winning Indian composer A.R.Rahman at the Boston Symphony Hall and recording with the Irish Grammy winning composer Bill Whelan as a part of a choir. Apart from being featured in larger productions, as a leader and core member, I gig regularly in New York with my self titled band 'Rini', playing World Electronica originals and with the band Trandcention, playing Electro-Acoustic Fusion Music.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
