Online Teachers

November 13, 2017, 12:31 PM · I am an advanced player with very little experience in the past 15 years or so. I have moved to a culturally void area in the middle of nowhere but would love to improve my playing to where it used to be.

Does anyone here give or know someone who gives lessons online via Skype or Facetime, etc.? Or have any ideas on alternatives?

Desperate for a coach.....

Since my son has given me access to his interactions with Anger, I see how it can work and the clarity of the transmissions to and from that site.

Nathan Cole, 1st Associate Concertmaster of the LA Philharmonic teaches classical violin at Artistworks. com ( ). His qualifications are impeccable. Lydia worked with that link for a while - so she can tell you more. If I were in a position to profit from lessons and did not have access to local professional teachers that is where I would go.

Both Anger and Cole have resumes (and more) on line.

I know my teacher, Emil Chudnovsky (who teaches advanced players, up to the DMA level), offers lessons by Skype, but I'm not sure about the circumstances under which he does that. If you contact me through the site I can give you his email address.

Many of the teachers who offer Skype lessons teach mostly beginners. If you're looking for teachers who offer lessons for advanced players, I would look primarily at university professors or full-time symphony players who offer lessons via Skype.
