5.0Exceptional(9 reviews)


I have been teaching over 42 years as a senior teacher for all levels in violin and viola. I hold a master degree in violin performance from Roosevelt University in Chicago. I worked at the Istanbul State Opera and Ballet Orchestra for 10 years as an Assistant Concert-master. I also worked the Civic Orchestra of Chicago (the training Orchestra of Chicago Symphony) for several years under the direction of Daniel Barenboim ( former music director). In Chicago I worked at the People's Music School and De Paul University for many years as violin and viola instructor. Currently, I am the founder and Director of Southport Performing Arts Conservatory in music, dance and drama in Chicago known as SPACE and Artistic and I also worked as an Administrative and Artistic Director of the Music Department of School of Performing Arts.

My passion is to teach children. They are so unique, beautiful and creative. I would love to explore and form children's artistic potentials. My goal is to make "Art" as a part of child’s life.

    Ms.Fusun is a great teacher! We are so happy that she is teaching our daughter! We trust her and our daughter looks forward to every lesson! As a parent, I am very happy we found Ms.Fusun! She has the background that not a lot of teachers have and also the work ethics that not a lot of teachers have.
    Thank you Ms. Fusun!!!🙏

    What a difference a teacher makes! Our older daughter’s attitude towards lessons and practice changed drastically once we switched to Füsun hanim as our teacher. And I am amazed at how Füsun is able to keep my 3.5 year-old focusing on the lessons for 30 min! I didn’t think it was going to be possible. My little one sings the songs from their piano lessons to herself and even changes the pitch of her voice to match the notes 🥰. We couldn’t be happier.

    Our little one has been taking violin lessons with Ms. Fusun for the past 4yrs and we have been absolutely thrilled with the results and growth of our little musician. We’ve added piano lessons this fall and the addition has been seamless with the violin lessons. We could not ask for a more caring and dedicated music teacher and it shows in the level of pride and confidence our daughter has when she performs at every recital. We definitely recommend for private lessons in violin and piano.

    Weve been going to Miss Fusun for a few years now and she is an endlessly patient and dedicated teacher. She builds rapport with her students and guides them skillfully. We are happy with the progress the kids are making and recommend Miss Fusuns violin and piano classes.
