Violin, Music Theory, Viola
I love playing violin. I've been studying since the age of 5. I was very involved throughout middle school and high school with an intense pre-college program at Indiana University. We had music theory, master classes, chamber music, performances, and multiple lessons a week. It was during this time that I really knew that I wanted to major in violin performance, and had realized that music was a vital part of my life! By being a part of that pre-college program, I was given opportunities such as traveling the world with our group and doing concert tours, and playing with different professional artists, and orchestras. I was also involved in a youth orchestra until I graduated highschool. I attended Indiana University majoring in Violin performance. I hold a Bachelors and a Masters degree. I have also had a little bit of training on the viola, and in music theory. I completed every pedagogy teaching class that was offered at IU and was fortunate to have a lot of experience teaching. I am now a violinist in the Colorado Symphony and I am loving it! I believe music is a very important factor in a well rounded education, and I hope that I am able to teach you to love and respect music and to enjoy the incredible journey of learning!
Violin, Fiddle, Viola
I have a bachelor's degree in violin performance from the University of Utah and studied with Utah Symphony veteran John Chatelain. I have three years experience teaching privately, I've been in many orchestras, played in some fiddle contests, and I was a member of one rock band.
I'm open to teaching all styles of music, and meeting all types of students. I think it's important to teach people music that they want to play, and would want to listen to. Beyond that, I do my best to explain music and technique in plain, and even scientific ways because I believe that even 'artsy' things like music can still make sense.
I look forward to working with you!
Violin, Music Performance, Viola
At the age of 3, I began playing the violin and was taught through the Suzuki Method. Before ever learning to read a note, I learned to play by ear- learning to listen and imitate, much as a child learns to imitate sounds and speak before learning the letters of the alphabet. This ear training, in combination with note reading and other techniques, created the groundwork for the rest of my life as a musician!
The moment that would change my life as a musician came at age 12 while performing with Disney's Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra in Chicago. We had the opportunity to perform with violinist Vanessa Mae. I had never seen someone that could inspire so much electric energy and, at the same time, put such tender, heartfelt emotion into every note. A new fire and zeal for music was born in me that I can never forget!
That passion for music has driven me to reach for every performance and training opportunity possible and to help others do the same. In completing my bachelor's degree in Viola Performance at the Jacob's School of Music at Indiana University, I brushed shoulders with mentors who not only shaped me as a performing musician but also as a teacher. Participating in the Suzuki Pedagogy program provided the ultimate hands-on opportunity to teach, alongside other professionals, and mold beginning violinists in their first steps.
I have been teaching privately for the past 10 years, helping beginning through advanced students ranging in age from 4 to 52. It's been unbelievably rewarding watching each student's life change with music. My young beginners love the creative outlet that playing the violin and viola provides. The discipline they develop in learning to play crosses musical boundaries and can be seen in their schoolwork and other daily routines. My adult students love the opportunity to begin the musical journey they had only dreamed of in the past; or, the chance to "dust off" their instruments that they put by the wayside as a child. Equally rewarding is teaching those students with fundamentals already in place to stretch and turn their technique into expressive, musical lines!
I love the opportunity to get to know the unique personalities and styles of EACH of my students and to help them put this qualities into their playing! Let me help you discover the musician waiting to come out in you!...
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
