Hi My name is Natalia and I love teaching violin and viola at all ages and levels. I am classically trained but enjoy playing and teaching a variety of styles and genres including but not limited to contemporary, improvisation, pop, rock, r&b, blues, jazz, gypsy jazz, indie, and more. The violin is a very versatile instrument and so I teach in a way that focuses on ear training and note reading so that the student is able to play any type of music and reach their goals. I cater my teaching to every individual student by using the Suzuki Method along with other various methods. Whether a student is on the conservatory track or wants to improve as a professional or just wants to play for fun, I provide an encouraging and relaxed atmosphere while also focusing on excellent technique and violin playing ability.
Natalia is awesome. She's a really talented violinist and an amazing teacher. She focuses a lot on musicalitity and the quality of the playing, which I find super helpful. She's also very patient, helps me correct my mistakes and is very accommodating when it comes to my unpredictable schedule. I've been taking lessons with Natalia for about two years now and I've made more progress than I thought was possible, not just in terms of my own playing, but also with identifying my strengths and weaknesses, and making progress with technique. Natalia always has helpful suggestions when I'm stuck on something or if I'm finding something particularly hard. Overall, I'm lucky to have Natalia for an instructor.
