    Learning with Abigel was really instrumental to my practice! She helped me through all the difficulties I was experiencing and worked by my side to resolve them. I felt like my technique improved very quickly and thanks to her method of teaching, I was able to make significant progress without struggling too much!

    As someone who came from playing guitar and piano, Abi did a wonderful job helping me with the transition and ensuring I understood the differences, and adjusted her teaching style to take into account my different backgrounds/trainings/difficulties. She's been super great and friendly as well and is very encouraging in her lessons!'

  • Supriya Ganesh

    Very knowledgeable and very helpful!

  • James Samonte

    Abigel, is consistent with her teachings and also provides alternative steps to walk your through your lesson and will also do at her best to follow you at your learning pace. Overall, I’ll give her a good performance of 100% for her dedication and very supportive at all times to her students. It is not just learning, we are also enjoying ourselves playing violin especially doing a duo so I can catch up a perfect intonation and rhythm. I’m so glad to have her as my teacher.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to take an hour or two to really decide on what I think their level of playing is in order to start learning the best suitable repertoire for the student. I also include my student in the process if deciding what their goals are as violinists, and what type of music they want to play (classical/jazz/folk/pop). My students have a lot of say in the lessons, and I think that because of this, they go home excited and motivated to practice on their own as well.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have an udergraduate degree from the Juilliard School in violin performance. I also studied at th Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. I have some of the greatest violin players and teachers of our time, and want to pass on everything that they taught to me to my students!


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I like to charge 50 for 45 minute lessons, and 60 for hour-long lessons. Depending on need and travel time I would charge more or less. IFor example, if my studenti comes twice a wieek, i would lower the rate to 40 per lesson (80 iper week)


How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching a couple years agi when my teacher had to travel last-minute and needed someone to cover for her. I taught all of her students for a while and had so much fun. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many types of people. I have worked with young children around the age of 6, teenagers around the age of 15 and adults around the age of 40. I am very good at dealing with frustrated children and am very good at adapting to their personaities and needs in order to get my the most out of the lesson and make it as enjoyable and fruitful for the student.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One day, my student came in to play one of the pieces we had been working on for a little while. We had been trying to get his intonation to be great in the said piece, but for some reason we had been struggling with it in our past lessons. I had been trying to come up with a way for him to think about intonation feom another angle, so I came up with a soecial scale for him to do. I was so surprised at what the scale did to him- it helped him do exactly what we had been working towards for weeks. I love these proud teaching moments, the moments when we both finally figure out together how to solve a technical problem on the violin.
