String Struck Studio
We strive to create a fun and enjoyable environment for students to learn to play violin and viola
String Struck Studio strives to make music fun and enjoyable for all students looking to learn to play the violin or viola. We do this by creating an enjoyable learning environment and providing a trial lesson for each student who wants to learn to play.
Do you offer online lessons?
Yes! All students who speak fluent English can take advantage of online lessons from anywhere in the world.
What is the difference between a violin and viola?
Violins have a higher range than violas and typically get the melody part in an orchestra setting more often than violas. Violas are slightly broader, longer, and thicker than violins and have a lovely rich tone. Both instruments and their bows are held and manipulated the same way.
What ages do you teach?
I accept ages 3 years and older; however, not every potential student is automatically accepted. If either the student or I feel we are not a good match, I will gladly provide the names of other local teachers who might provide a more successful experience for the student.
Amy is a wonderful teacher and a great violinist. She inspires me to continue playing the violin. With her, the lesson becomes interesting and productive.Vladimir B.
Amy is a very meticulous teacher. She makes sure everything is perfect before moving on to the next skill.Will H.
Ms. Amy has been my son’s violin teacher for almost 5 years now. I’m very pleased with her style of teaching, she is very proficient. I would highly recommend her for the beginner, intermediate, or advanced. She is a wonderful teacher and I’m glad I found her.Kennethia W.
Amy has an incredible knowledge of violin & viola technique as well as music theory. She is able to explain things in an easy to understand way which has helped me to improve my abilities as a violist. My lessons are well structured and includes work with scales, technique exercises and learning a solo piece. I am an adult student who’s played for 13 years. Stopping in college, I picked it up again after a 10 year break. I am impressed with how much I’ve grown in the two years I’ve taken private lessons from Amy. We’ve been able to expand upon skills already learned, as well as improving other techniques. I would highly recommend her as a teacher for any age and skill level.Connie S.
Amy has everything you could want in a violinist: an innate sense of intonation, a beautiful tone, a mature, musical sound overall. As a teacher, she has a great “bedside manner,” good insights to offer, and tremendous patience with kids. She also has a keen interest in the fundamental theory behind the music and will pass on to her students a well-rounded musical education.Asmara Bhattacharya [violin instructor]
Ms. Amy at String Struck Studio is a great violin teacher. We (my granddaughter and I) met her through a school program and have continued using her for private lessons. She is patient and comes up with different teaching techniques depending on the student’s individual needs. We’ve been taking lessons from her for several years and highly recommend her!Gina M.
