One of America’s premier violin teachers, Steven Palincsar draws on the teachings of Dorothy DeLay, Ivan Galamian, and Josef Gingold, in achieving his mission of preparing the advancing young violin student through private violin lessons, master classes, clinics, and coaching of student chamber ensembles.

Based in Chicago’s prestigious North Shore suburbs, he is dedicated to the successful preparation of students for auditions to America’s top music schools, for national and international competitions, as well as for positions with America’s major symphony orchestras.






















Violin mastery? To me it means the ability to make the violin a perfectly controlled instrument guided by the skill and intelligence of the artist, to compel it to respond in movement to his every wish.
