I'm an experienced and dedicated musician, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state.

Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

I've been taking lessons for the past three weeks and I must say Nicholas is a very educated instructor. He is very clear in his instructions and patiently waits for you to understand his topics. I highly recommend him to other new violin players. I plan to continue my lessons with him in the future.

My first lesson with Irina was amazing! I loved her energy, and she was so friendly and encouraging. I’m an adult beginner and have never played a violin before. Irina started by tuning my violin, preparing my bow with rosin and teaching me the various parts of the violin and bow. When she began to show me how to properly hold the bow and violin and moved my arms and hands in the right positions, I felt so thankful that I’d made the choice of in-person lessons. I’m confident that I’ll learn the proper technique from Irina and happy about the hands-on correction I’ll receive. Irina has so much experience and plays beautifully. I’m so excited about our lessons and eager to continue learning from her.

Irina has been absolutely wonderful with my 11-year old daughter. She has a lot of patience and has a natural ability of teaching my daughter how to play the violin.

LisaJo is an extraordinary violin teacher. She is helpful, positive and interesting during lessons. She helps students progress with perceptive comments and targeted studies. She is the only teacher I have worked with who has taken so much time giving notes and extra-curricular materials to support progress. Thanks so much, LisaJo!

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

Lessons are tailored to fit each individual student's ability and goals. I believe in challenging students while maintaining a supportive and encouraging environment. Lessons will cover music theory, technique, and solo pieces. The goal is to develop in each student the specific skills needed to play a string instrument as well as to nurture an understanding and love for music.
Lessons take place at my apartment in Southeast Denver, near Hampden and I-25. Students are expected to prepare for and participate annual studio recitals.

About Kostadin

She left me with knowledge that will be easy to remember and easy to practice so that at our next lesson I already feel prepared.

At the age of 54 I decided to purchase a violin and learn to play. I found Lauren Cauley through Takelessons.com and could not be more pleased with her!! She has taught me so much in my first four weeks. She's patient with me and encourages me when I get discouraged with my play. She is quick to answer the numerous questions I have. She is an extremely talented musician with a talent for teaching. She pushes me in my weekly assignments and ensures I've mastered one level before we move to the next. Thanks Lauren!!"

I had the first lesson and I would say it was good but too early to conclude the overall experience. I would prefer to provide meaningful feedback at the end of my sessions so that it will be informative and helpful for others. Thanks"

He has been kind and professional even though the lessons are in my house and I have a 2 and 4 year old continually trying to interrupt. Instead of being frustrated he has been patient and loving towards them and my entire family. We are so blessed to have him as a teacher in our home. Thank you so much."

"I am excited to write a review for our awesome violin instructor~! Our little pre-teen 10 year old daughter took lessons prior Miss Emily for about 6 months but had no motivation to practice and so there was no progress. However, since we met Miss Emily, our daughter has been so motivated! Only after her first lesson, she understood how to read notes, she was engaged, and must've picked up her violin to practice at least 3 times a day for a good 20-30 minutes on her own (under no request by Miss Emily)! I believe it is because Miss Emily is very passionate about her teaching and is very encouraging towards her students. She doesn't make violin lessons a chore, rather an amazing experience!

Miss Emily is very knowledgeable and an amazing and very professional instructor! She patiently goes step by step to make sure all the basis for a firm foundation in music is there and then thoroughly goes to all the steps to keep it simple in learning! She builds great rapport and brings her personal experience to make her more relatable! I would highly recommend Miss. Emily as an instructor!"

Music has always been one of Atlanta's claims to fame. Great talent has emerged from this city, and certainly makes it shine: Usher, Toni Braxton, OutKast, The Black Crowes, Collective Soul, John Mayer and Ludacris have all come from Atlanta's music scene.

For those who want to get started with music, popular instruments include the guitar, piano, drums and the violin. The violin in particular poses challenges that aren’t seen with other instruments; for example, it needs to be played at a precise angle that can be difficult for beginners to learn. In order to ensure proper playing habits, taking private violin lessons with a great teacher is necessary.
