Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Saxophone, Violin

About Me

Hello! I'm Lori and I'm working on my master's at Boston Conservatory for clarinet performance. I've been a public school music teacher for the past 2 years, but taking a leave of absence to continue my education. I hold my initial teaching license for K-12 instrumental, choral, and general music.

Growing up, I've played violin, clarinet, and saxophone mostly. I've had private lessons on clarinet, violin, and oboe. I studied at UMass Amherst where I received my bachelor's in Music Education and Music Performance with a minor in Psychology. I have performance experience in marching band, wind ensembles, orchestras, chamber ensembles, and solo repertoire.

In my spare time, I do enjoy messing around with technology. I do enjoy some video games and I have build my own PC from parts. I am in the process of integrating more technology in my music performance. I also have 2 cats named Bear (picture of him below!) and Chester.

Whatever the goal of each student is, it will guide the focus and intensity of the lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my own instrument to demo on. The student should have all necessary supplies, music, and stand.

*** Specialties ***

Pre-K to grade 12 licensed,

Jill G. Jamaica Plain, MA

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Viola, Violin

About Me

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 innovator in musical education, and I've felt honored to coach numerous already gifted violin teachers who have sought me out to improve their techniques for best teaching practices. From my 30+ years of private violin teaching and observing how children learn, I developed a super fun groundbreaking class in New York City for 2.5 to 5 year old beginners called Crackerjack Kidz! And a few years ago, I wrote a text to accompany young students and their families.

I continuously work to be a master teacher dedicated to the very best methods, using a variety and combination of techniques and strategies tailored to the student's musical success and enjoyment.

My specialties include music-based early childhood development, adult beginners and continuing learners, intermediate and advanced players, and chamber music coaching.

I welcome you to start your family's musical journey with me!

*** Lesson Details ***
While each lesson is different, we always try to spend a little time warming up, making sure we're comfortable and free of tension, reviewing what we've worked on, and layering in new concepts each time. We also learn age appropriate music theory (the "why's" of how music works), we exercise our imaginations, and we learn how to effectively practice.

We learn to think, solve problems, hear the music in our minds, and coordinate our bodies to play beautifully! Along the way we learn skills for life, the joy of accomplishment, and love of ourselves and others!

Whether you're a toddler or a senior, violin can always teach new things and help students appreciate more about themselves and the world!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room with keyboard and computer. Parents can sit it on lessons, and are enouraged to do so with young students.

*** Specialties ***
I'm a classically trained violinist and a master teacher with over 30 years of experience. I've been teaching Suzuki violin to children ages 3 and up for my whole career, and I'm also extremely comfortable with traditional methods for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of any age.

My specialties include:
music-based early childhood development
adult beginners and continuing learners
intermediate and advanced players
chamber music coaching.

Jenae S. Ashland, MA

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Piano, Violin

About Me

I have had a regular studio of violin and piano students in the Boston area since 2006. I began teaching in 2001 in Seattle, WA. I perform regularly as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player at the Longy School of Music, in the Freisinger Chamber Orchestra, the Dorchester Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Civic Symphony Orchestra.

My primary focus in my teaching is to guide my students to becoming independent musicians, and to help them develop a thorough understanding of music. Lessons include learning about music theory, sight reading, performance skills and technique. I have a thorough understanding of pedagogy and a true passion for teaching students of all ages.

Education:

I've received both my Master's of Music degree with Emphasis in String Pedagogy and Undergraduate Diploma in Violin Performance from the Longy School of Music, studying with professors Janet Packer and Mark Lakirovich, and have received my Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Emerson College.

Originally from Seattle, WA, I began studying the piano at the age of seven. Soon after, I began studying the violin, and performed regularly in recitals and competitions. I have won scholarships to attend the Longy School of Music for both programs and the Max Aronoff Viola Institute.

My hobbies include dancing Argentine tango and playing tango music, riding horses, sailing and yoga.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are fun and creative, and we'll work on something new and exciting each week. Students bring their lesson books and notebooks to each lesson, and practice goals are written clearly in their notebooks at each lesson. I use a series of different books depending on the age and level of the student, with a combination of classical, popular, and folk melodies. In my lessons, I often play my violin with my students to demonstrate certain points, or play along for support so they can match the sound. I also accompany violin students on the piano, providing a strong musical support and an opportunity to learn how to play with a different instrument.

Usually, after a just a couple of weeks, students are already playing pieces they are familiar with. I encourage my students to practice every day, because consistency is very important when learning an instrument. Students will also learn how prepare for performances and have the opportunity to play in recitals each year.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate Music studio adjacent to house w/ piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an excellent quality keyboard, if necessary. Students should have a keyboard or piano at home to practice on, or a violin if they are taking violin lessons.

*** Specialties ***
