Personalised Violin lessons available in half-hour sessions in the Montclair area.
I currently offer half-hour lessons to all of my students. I feel that with half-hour lessons you will be able to learn in small doses and in my opinion that is the most efficient way to learn.
I am an experienced teacher who has over 40 years of experience in teaching. I will use this experience to make sure you really receive the best tuition. I am also experienced in live performance having often performed orchestral and chamber music in my spare time.
I like to make sure my lessons are both fun and enjoyable for all of my students. I really feel enjoying what you learn is a key aspect to making the progress you want.
During my time as a teacher I have achieved many things including being the inventor of Things 4 Strings® Bow Hold Accessories: Bow Hold Buddies® & Hold Fish® for Violin / Viola which is a big accomplishment of mine. I am also a registered Teacher with the Suzuki Association of the Americas among others.
I teach from a home studio in a central location that is easy for all of my students to find. I like to make sure all of my students are comfortable and learn in a good environment.
I currently take the majority of my lessons from my home teaching studio based in upper Montclair, NJ 07043. This is a great place to learn how to play as I have created a comfortable environment where you can really unlock your true potential whilst enjoying doing so.
My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking.

There are a few options when it comes to music stores in the Montclair area. I would recommend travelling further into New Jersey if you want more options when it comes to music stores.

The only other option in the local area we have would be Montclair Music Where you can find a wide range of both new and used instruments. The store is located at 104 Watchung Ave, Upper Montclair, NJ 07043.
Music Venues in Montclair:
There is a wide range of music venues in the Montclair area catering to a wide range of genres. Below are a couple of the most popular options.
The first option I would recommend would be The Wellmont Theatre Hall which plays host to a wide range of genres including everything from classical to musical theatre. This is one of the oldest venues in the area having been established in 1922. You can find them at 5 Seymour St, Montclair, NJ 07042.
The other option I would recommend would be The Meatlocker which is more suited to those who are interested in rock and alternative music. It is a small venue but has regular live nights all week. You can find them at 8 Park St, Montclair, NJ 07042.
I am always happy to take on new students. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask me.
