    Lorenzo is great with my 6 year old son. He is fun to interact with, but also firm and sets high expectations, which is a teaching style that suits my son well. My son is learning very quickly with Lorenzo's instruction and is motivated to practice even when it's difficult. Lorenzo teaches both violin and the basics of music theory and notation. He has been flexible in scheduling lessons both in person (outdoor with masks) and online, which has been important during the pandemic and with winter weather. Highly recommended!

    I’m not the prototypical student - an older adult with no musical experience - driven to finally play the instrument I love. I wanted (and needed) a superb instructor, and in Maestro Mazzamuto, I found him. A rare teacher whose traits include; humor, adaptiveness, curiosity, patience, imagination, and problem solving. My progress in 3 months has been impressive. Lorenzo is a highly capable teacher, and an immensely talented artist with an obvious passion for the violin. I strive for perfection and wanted an instructor who does too. If you’re serious about learning to play the violin, you’d be making a mistake by not contacting Lorenzo.

    Maestro Mazzamuto is so kind and patient with my 4 year old beginner. He has so many tricks for making learning to read music fun. My little guys loves playing with his teacher. Even with COVID keeping them masked and outside for lessons Maestro keeps his attention and focus for the lesson. He is great with kids and we are very happy to have found him.

    I appreciate his patience and talent to increase the all student capabilities. There are no limits with him

FAQs


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

Setting our goals together.


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

I studied with the best violin teachers in the world and I graduated from the Moscow State Conservatory (MMD in violin performance) and Temple University (MMD string pedagogy).


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

How much I charge it depends on what the level of the student is and on what we need to work on.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching really young (16 y.o.) I was an enfant prodige and many musicians (even much older than me, always asked for lessons).


What types of students have you worked with?

From beginners to Doctoral students.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My Carnegie hall debut in February 2020. It's especially important to me this concert because it was my last one before COVID 19


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

There are great performers who are terrible teachers and terrible performers who are terrible teachers and performers. What you cannot make with your own hands, there's no way you'll be able to help someone else to make it with their own hands. The first and most important quality of a good teacher is to be a good player. A suggestion to all of students who are interested in learning music.... Listen to your teachers... if they have never been able to play decently, it means they will never be able to teach you anything decently


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

just a short funny story.... Today my student: “Maestro, it’s not fair that you can just pick up the violin and play any super difficult passage impeccably at first try. How many hours do I need to practice to play like you?”..... I answered: “around 30000 hours, do you think that’s fair enough to play impeccably any difficult passage?”......lol
