I have been teaching private lessons since 2002, and currently (as of January 2019) have openings for new students on Mondays and Tuesdays. My studio is located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago.

Lessons are taught one-on-one, and last 30 to 60 minutes once a week, depending on the level of the student. Parents of younger students are highly encouraged to sit in on lessons and assist with daily home practice. All students learn classical technique and musicality as well as music theory and music history when needed.

The first lesson with a new student is free — a trial lesson in which I mainly try to get an idea of how I could best help you or your child as a player.

Lesson Rates: (Home Studio)
30 min = $30 (ages 5-12 only)
45 min = $45
60 min = $60

Please contact me with any questions or to set up a lesson.

What My Students Are Saying

"Eric's attention to detail and experience with new students made me feel comfortable knowing that I was getting a solid foundation in violin. Making sure that early mistakes don't become long term habits is critical, and Eric knows how to catch those issues upfront."

“Hi Eric, I want to tell you that I’m learning a ton from you and I’m happy to have you as my teacher. So thanks, and have a great weekend!”
