Looking for a violin teacher? You're in the right spot!

Hello! My name is Helen Newell and I am a professional violinist currently based in Boston, Massachusetts. I have been playing violin for 18 years, and teaching for 6. I grew up in a classical and folk background where I was taught how to nurture my love of music while also learning the technical bits of violin! It can be frustrating to master the violin, but my philosophy with teaching is finding music that you love and balancing it with technical practice! I mainly teach classical and folk music, but we can explore any style that you'd like! I'll make sure to help you develop a strong technical base around whatever you're interested in playing. If you want to see what a lesson with me is like, try a FREE trial lesson! I'd love to get to know you and talk about how I can help you! Just click the big button below and we can get started!
