Frank Peracchia

Performer/teacher grad of Cleveland inst. of Music teaches music of all styles to people of all ages!
Teaching Philosophy

I believe in teaching the person to teach themselves. To develop critical thinking and a good ear. Of course, having a good toolbox from which to communicate the violin with is essential! I don't teach by pressuring people. I use a soft approach that hopefully inspires. I help to motivate the student through the joy of the sound of the violin! Not by demanding things. Ultimately, a student must find their own motivations.


I have been a professional violinist for more than 20 years as a performer, coach and teacher. I have performed in string quartets, as well as orchestras. I have taught privately and also in schools.


I graduated from the Cleveland Institute of music with a masters in violin performance. I have played in prize-winning string quartets including the Sausalito which one top prizes in the Coleman, Fischhoff and Carmel chamber music competitions.
