About Jill

I've been in and around music all my life. I started violin at age 5, part of the first generation of Suzuki violinists in the United States. I've loved being a professional violinist and violin teacher for over 30 years! And I've also founded and directed three community music schools in Newburyport, Boston, and Manhattan.

I hold Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Violin Performance, and I'm lucky to have had wonderful experiences during my formal training! In my undergraduate years, I was awarded a full 4-year scholarship for string quartet and chamber music playing, which was invaluable as a real-world training. In graduate school, I was fortunate to learn so much as a Teaching Assistant for undergraduate violin students.

I have also been an ...

Wonderful All Around

Jill Good is an amazing music teacher for all ages and can connect with any student on both an intellectual and personal level. I work for Gradoux-Matt Rare Violins LLC and can absolutely assure that the first music teacher we recommend is Jill Good. I've seen her students' recitals and have been astonished at the progress each student shows from one performance to the next.
I started playing the violin at age 4 and while I have loved all my teachers, I still wish I had someone as brilliant as Jill instructing me. For any age, Jill Good is perfection.

Jill is great!

My husband and I were both delighted at how much progress our daughters (at the time aged 6 and 4) made with the violin under Jill’s careful guidance. Jill is very good with children, and in each lesson she gently engaged her students’ attention on the music and on learning new techniques. The result was that both of our daughters were focused and made real progress every single week.

We found that the Suzuki method of learning has worked very well for our daughters. Both of them (now aged 10 and 8) have gone on to play several in junior violin ensembles and take real pleasure and pride in their playing. They love music, and much of that is down to the wonderful early grounding they received from Jill.

Jill is a great teacher

I am a cellist, but I wanted to improve my violin skills. Therefor I started taking lessons from Jill. Before that I had observed Jill giving group classes to very young students and I was impressed how good her violin classes were: she has a special way to reach children and to make them follow her instructions. She is very patient and dedicated.
With every lesson, I was improving. Of course we have to practice and the kids need the parent's help at home. But with Jill's help you will have a top notch violin lesson.
Kathryn T. Brighton, MA

I can help you with everything from traditional classical repertoire to modern world, folk, jazz, and improvisation. I like to focus on music theory and reading skills, in addition to developing musicality from the first lesson. I also play electric violin and can help you to set up virtual or analogue rigs to get the best sound.

I had never taken any types of musical lessons before and just simply search piano lessons and found Leanna and after skimming over her profile a bit I decided to give it a shot and I've got to say I'm glad I did. Not only is she a very good teacher in the aspect that she knows what shes talking about she also has a pleasant personality and is easy to work with. I'd like to add also that scheduling lessons with her is easy.

If your looking for a Piano teacher I'd highly recommend Leanna.

Sarah E. Allston, MA

Violin is my secondary instrument which I have studied for 10 years. I can teach new students the fundamentals of the violin including posture, fingerings, and basic repertoire.

About Sarah

Music should be a fun and rewarding activity for all ages to enjoy. In my studio the student will get personal and individualized attention where they can learn in a manner that best suits them. First and foremost, my goal is to allow the student to experience the joy of singing. I have an emphasis in vocal health, so my students will learn a healthy vocal technique, appropriate body alignment, performance techniques, fundamentals of music, and confidence. While my training is in classical voice and opera, I am also comfortable teaching musical theater, light jazz, and popular music. I have worked with children and adults alike, ranging from beginner to more advanced.
