Welcome to Third Floor Suzuki Violin, the violin studio of Adam Davidowitz.
I'm a Suzuki violin teacher in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. I've been teaching since 2005.
There are a lot of violin teachers in the area. So why should you choose me?
The answer is impeccability. Every lesson, I strive to do my absolute best – and a little bit more – so that the student can do their best and a little bit more. As a comparatively small studio, I am very selective in the students I take on. I require prospective parents and students to observe a lesson and ask any questions they may have.
I host lessons at Bethany United Church of Christ (4250 N. Paulina Avenue) in Ravenswood.
I started taking Suzuki violin lessons at four years old. I received my Bachelor of Music with Performance Honors from Syracuse University and my Masters of Music from The Boston Conservatory.
I moved to Chicago in 2005 and founded Third Floor Suzuki Violin in 2010 with the intent of providing high quality violin instruction in the Ravenswood area. While taking lessons, children as young as 4 years old learn life skills such as focus, discipline, patience and teamwork.
I am a fully trained Suzuki teacher and registered with the Suzuki Association of the Americas to teach Volumes 1-10.
"The kids spend their lessons each week very engaged due to his sense of humor, and very productive due to the high level of respect he commands. Adam partners with me as a parent to have realistic yet high expectation of the kids, and to let me know when and how they could do better. I never feel like their time is wasted or that they aren’t working up to their potential."
"Adam Davidowitz has done a fantastic job as Sarina's violin teacher. She started when she was just under 7 years old, and two years later, I'm amazed at what she can do on the violin. Adam has a great demeanor about him – making it fun yet being very serious about how she plays the instrument. It's hard to imagine asking for anything more from him."
"Adam is a great teacher. He has been our violin teacher for 10 years. He is patient, yet encourages my son to progress. He understands that we have busy schedules and some weeks we get more practice than others. He holds twice-a-year recitals which is a great experience for my budding musician, and really enjoyable for parents!"
