--- At this moment I'm not taking new students in Los Angeles, I'm only accepting Skype students due to a job position in Brazil that forces me to travel often. Music theory and violin lessons work great on skype and it cost less, since the teacher does not have to travel to your house.--- --They are not good only for someone who is completely new to the violin, since in the very beginning it is fundamental to be able to correct posture. If that's your case I can recomend a good violin teacher in the Los Angeles area. --- I was seven years old when I had my first contact with the violin. A violin teacher, who wa ... View Profile

 I have a long list of credits with 3 Grammy nominations and one Grammy award, but the most important distinction between me and other teachers is that I get fast results. I've always loved helping others and I've taught saxophone, clarinet and flute for over 35 years. If you want to learn to play and be able to not only play songs but to jam on them then I have the method for you. Just check out some of these videos and you'll see how fast you can learn with me. You won't see another teacher anywhere on the web showing their students after just a few lessons. Check these out and give me a call. This first video is of 3 of my students wh ... View Profile
