Hannah S. Stow, OH

I am able to teach violin to the "intermediate" level.
For violin, no age/grade cap can be given because people mature with the instrument at different rates.
I teach until I no longer feel I have the skill set to fit the student's needs. This is often during the transitional time between high school and college.

About Hannah

Hello!
My name is Hannah, and I would love to teach YOU! I am highly motivated, fun-loving, and exceptionally passionate about music-- even more so, having you develop a passion for it as well. I have performed all over the US and even Puerto Rico. With the many years I have studied my various instruments, and also performed with them, I am confident in the abilities I have now and those I continue to develop.
I have a desire for everyone to have some musical knowledge, and an even greater wish for individuals to shift their knowledge into a love for whatever they choose to do musically. I can teach a variety of styles and enjoy the challenge of learning which ways to teach You best.
Overall, I would call myself a "music dork." I love performing, learning, and teaching; and ...

Excellent Opportunity

I feel very grateful to study under Hannah. She cares and wants you to improve. For me to trust my instructor, I need to know that my teacher cares. Hannah can and will adjust, if this is for the betterment of the student.

Hannah has a strong foundation that allows her to relate to students. Her desire to learn motivated me many times in our lessons.

Please do not hesitate, if you wish to improve your craft. Good Luck!!!

A great, down-to-earth teacher with a lot to offer.

I contacted Hannah for summer lessons because as an actor, I was quite insecure about my singing voice. Hannah presented a very friendly and open environment and I found that I was really able to connect with her. She was very accommodating; she really tried to construct her lessons around my needs and my goals, even if they weren't exactly in her field of specialty. I appreciate all the help she's given me, along with the much-needed confidence boost. She's an incredible talent, but she's very down-to-earth, personable, and patient with her students. I will definitely keep in touch.
Jamie V. Tallmadge, OH

I teach beginner violin with goals of getting the student to learn a proper bow hold, bow distribution, musicality, counting and how to practice effectively.

About Jamie

I have a Master's Degree in Viola performance from the University of Akron. I have won the Tuesday Musical State wide competition for stringed instruments in 2009 for EJ Thomas Hall. I was awarded String Student of the year in my undergraduate studies at the University of Akron where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance. I have performed with the Transiberian Orchestra, Ohio Light Opera, and Ashland Symphony. I had the opportunity to attend the prestigious Meadow Mount School of Music in New York as well as the Mark O'Connor Strings Fiddle camp in Tennessee. I perform with my church praise team, which is a lot of fun! I am apart of the High Strung Celtic band, performing all over Northeast Ohio. I also am apart of the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra.

I've had three lessons with Jamie, and so far so good! I am a beginner and she explains things very well, is patient, and flexible based on both my strengths and weaknesses. I was very nervous going into lessons, not having touched a musical instrument in 16 years, but Jamie quickly made me feel comfortable and I enjoy my time with her. I expect to be able to write an equally positive review after having had months of lessons with her.

I definitely recommend Jamie!

Learning Viola with Jamie is very enjoyable because she is patient and encouraging. She gives me the right amount of work to practice, and I find myself making progress each week. As a teacher, Jamie also knows well about the instrument and playing techniques. Believe me, you will improve a lot while having fun!

Jamie is an excellent teacher

jamie is a very patient teacher but also strict with fingering and correct bow hold. She explains new things very clearly and she has a very friendly attitude. I love learning with her because she gives me very good feedback and she's really encouraging. I think anyone would see themselves improve a lot with Jamie's teaching style. I look forward to my lesson every week. She doesn't get upset if i didn't get to practice enough but, instead she explains how to practice scales and fingering over and over so that it will be easier....she makes it fun to play the violin! Great teacher!

Barbara D. Twinsburg, OH

I began playing the violin at the age of 7 and have played with the Cleveland Institute of Music Youth Orchestra, the Cleveland Women's Orchestra, the Tuscarawas Philharmonic and am currently the principal second violinist with the Stow Symphony Orchestra. I believe that students can and should read music, but also believe in the importance of being able to "play by ear." My methods combine the best of Suzuki and Sassmannshaus methods. I have also been active in alternative string styles as a performer and a teacher.

About Barbara

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood.

Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that, you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument!

In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ...

My son has been taking lessons for several years with Barb. His skills and technique improved dramatically when he began and have continue to improve over the years. He received the "most improved" award in orchestra after his first year of lessons. He performs challenging music well at annual recitals and in Akron Youth Philharmonic with Barb's guidance. Barb is encouraging during lessons, yet always points out specific things that need attention for the next week. I highly recommend her.

We have been taking lessons with Barbara for several years now and her expertise is top notch. She has worked with both my 11 year old and 13 year old daughter. My oldest was principal for the entire 7th grade year and the lessons are what made a difference in her skill level. I am excited for my girls to continue to grow in their love of music and the viola and credit Barb for our private lessons. We are looking forward to this years solo and ensembles performance and already picked out our music. I highly recommend taking lessons with Barbara she is very flexible in her schedule and it's very convenient to set up and reschedule appointments and her prices are very reasonable.
