Hey there!


Read my story  ➝

I’ve always believed that you can learn violin as an adult.

As a full-time violin teacher of 12 years of experience, i have made it my life's mission to teach violin to adults in the most efficient, effective and fun manner possible.

My classes will help you improve on violin so that you can achieve your goals in playing anything you like.

"I've been taking violin group classes at the NYC Violin Studio for two years now and I love it. I started as a beginner and now I'm in the intermediate class. Both Antoinette and Marie are amazing teachers. Even now with the covid pandemic, taking online classes I've improved a lot, and also I've enjoyed playing and the concerts. I can't wait to start the summer semester!"

"I cannot recommend NYC Violin Studio enough. I have been to other schools in NYC and this is by far the best. Scheduling is incredibly easy. If I needed to miss a class I could make it up on another date. The instruction is fantastic. I think the instructors understand that most of the students aren't planning on becoming concert violinists, so they focus on teaching interesting pieces while providing enough theory and technique to improve without completely overwhelming us. Truly top-notch professionals who make the class fun!"
