By the first lesson, you will be playing the violin. By the end of the second lesson, you will usually be playing a song. By the end of the second month, you will be comfortable reading and playing easy music. After about a year, you will be playing intermediate-level songs. I will, however, need your dedication in practicing to take you as far as we can go in the time you give me. The best violin teacher in Manhattan.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I started playing the violin when I was in 3rd grade (1991). All of my music teachers taught with the Suzuki method. I practiced 30 minutes a day just like they said to, and I got better and better as time went on.
I developed my own personal style: my own vibrato, the rhythm in which I played, when to use an open string, etc. and I became very comfortable. While in school, I not only played in the orchestra (3rd chair in 1st violins), I also played in the pit orchestra for school plays. Additionally, I was one of four members of the Chamber group, which played for special outings and groups.
Lastly, while I was in high school and in college, I was a part of two separate hometown bands. Separately, I also recorded on two albums (Tim Segretto, Paul Biondi).
