Jessica M. Ypsilanti, MI

FIRST THINGS FIRST, THOUGH! Here's what you'll need to start:
- instrument (and accessories)
- music stand

During our first lesson we'll determine what literature and other music materials you'll need depending on where you are on your musical path. I'm more focused on confident playing and progress rather than perfection. The perfection comes with feeling good about YOU.

- classical, improvisation
- strong theory background & foundation

About Jessica

Hello, my name is Jessi and I'd love to help you build confidence in your violin playing in a friendly, nurturing environment! You'll find a fun-spirited, open-minded teacher in me. I have four years of teaching experience, and I studied Music Performance and Theory at the University of Texas at Arlington. My performance experience spans from years of quartets and orchestras to live-and-loud rock shows to campfire improv jam sessions. We will custom-tailor our lessons depending on your focus. If you don't have one yet, we'll figure that out, too. I enjoy students of all ages (I love adults just beginning!) and I am accepting BEGINNER and INTERMEDIATE students.

Dedicated teacher!

This instructor is very flexible and understanding. He is very knowledgeable and talented and I'm very privileged to be his student. He takes his time to make sure that you are understanding and learning. You can sense his excitement and passion for music and I know that he honestly wants to see me succeed. I even decided to switch instruments after a few lessons and he was very supportive and started all over with me without and objections or irritation!
