If there are no available trial lesson times or if you have a question about trial lessons, please contact us.

The trial lesson is an opportunity for student and teacher to meet one another to determine if they are compatible with one another, without any long-term commitment. Parents are welcome to accompany children. If a longer lesson length is desired, that can be arranged after the initial 30-minute session.


Christopher Ciampoli is a composer and performer who takes interest in the intersections of old and new, with frequent inspiration from visual art, poetry, anthropology, and astronomy. A guest composer for Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute 2019 National Youth Orchestra and a recipient of the Peabody Institute’s Randolph S. Rothschild award, Dr. Ciampoli has had his music performed in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

As a violinist, Dr. Ciampoli has premiered, performed, and recorded the works of dozens of young composers and of many contemporary masters through a wide variety of styles, along with routinely displaying and teaching music of the traditional repertoire. He has served as Concertmaster and Principal Violin II of the Occasional Symphony, Principal Violin II of Symphony Number One, Concertmaster of the Peabody Camerata, and Concertmaster of the TCNJ College Orchestra, along with performing solo and in collaboration with groups such as Mind on Fire and Ensemble 4-33.

Dr. Ciampoli’s violin training was with Jon Beiler of the Philadelphia Orchestra and with soloist Ruotao Mao. He has presented his compositions and performed violin in masterclasses with Georg Friedrich Haas, Christopher Rouse, Kate Soper, Jennifer Koh, and Peter Sheppard-Skaerved.

With more than 15 years of private teaching experience, Dr. Ciampoli is delighted to engage your goal of beginning a musical journey, preparing towards a college major/minor in music, or exploring and returning to music in one’s adult life.
