About Academy

Academy welcomes children ages 5 and older, adults and seniors to learn to play violin and fiddle, improve skills and enjoy variety of music styles with us. We believe that most people can learn to play violin(fiddle) if they practice and really want to learn.  We invest in every student’s success by providing a comprehensive music curriculum, diverse learning materials, tutorials, community performance opportunities as well as our academy’s video projects.  While focusing on fine violin (fiddle) playing traditions and good technique building (solid rhythm, intonation and beautiful tone), we like to introduce all our students to various styles of music, group classes and ensembles. Our team of instructors, lead by a professional violinist, Anna Baksheeva, consists of musicians with BA and Masters degrees in Music Performance. Our mission is to pass on musical knowledge and share our experience with anyone, regardless of age and ability. We love what we and we help people to do well what they love – play fiddle and enjoy it!
