Dr. Elizabeth M.

Private Violin Teacher

My work as a teaching artist has brought me a significant amount of experience in the training of young musicians of all levels, from beginners to university level. It is my goal to bring out the greatest potential in every student by tailoring every lesson towards the direct needs of each individual student. By learning the violin and piano, students develop skills in creative thinking, problem solving, communication and a stronger work ethic. Skills outside of music will be empowered such as public speaking, self-discipline, time management and self-confidence.

About Dr. Elizabeth

Elizabeth MacCorquodale's students have performed in such acclaimed venues as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, Teatro Paco de la Musica in Rome, Wigmore Hall in London and Citi Field. Many of Dr. MacCorquodale’s students have received top scores in the Royal Conservatory of Music,

My main instrument is piano/violin, and I have taken a year of violin lessons during my composition studies in Austria. I wanted to focus on my string instrument writing and also develop my violin playing skills (at the age of 33!).

Dr. Elizabeth proved herself to be a great teacher, who didn't only make my lessons fun (believe me, it's not that easy when you are at a certain age), but also made made things very interesting to me by relating the techniques I learned to string instrument writing (which is an amazing experience for a composer!).

Sometimes when I arrived early for my lessons, I observed Dr. Elizabeth with children and talked to some of the students' parents. They all speak highly of her and are very happy with their children's musical development.

I am (also) a music teacher at UC Berkeley, and have seen all kinds of teachers throughout my career and I can confidently say that you can't go wrong with Dr. Elizabeth. I still continue my weekly lessons and am amazed how much I've developed as a violinist since we started working together.

Thank you Dr. Elizabeth, see you next week!

Elizabeth is the best out there. She started teaching my nine year old about a year and a half ago. She is encouraging, fun, energetic, and incredibly talented and patient. Our daughter has learned so much and developed a new love of her Violin that with previous teachers was missing. We have never had a teacher our whole family loves seeing every week as much as her. Our daughter has improved so much and it is all thanks to the encouragement and skill that Elizabeth gives each lesson. She is one of a kind and an incredible teacher. We cannot recommend or thank her enough.

1 hour lesson with music theory, performance tips, and of course playing music!
I have been teaching for 7 years. In 2013 I received my Bachelors Degree in music from Bluefield College. I have played for the Rappahannock Youth Symphony and the Bluefield College Orchestra and I have in duets and trios with members of the Roanoke Symphony. I enjoy playing music, because music echoes the soul. Everyone may speak a different language, but all musicians speak the same language of notes and rhythm.

My violin students learn both classical and contemporary genres- I think it is important to have exposure to both! While focusing on the basics of posture, hand technique (right and left) and vibrato, my students will see improvement in weeks with the proper practice technique.

I have a tough time learning but Miss Jess explained everything in a way where I was able to actually understand. She is an INCREDIBLE instructor and I'm so blessed to be able to learn piano with her. She's one of the most patient teachers I've ever worked with and didn't make me feel like I was unteachable like people have in the past. If you're even debating yes or no, just pull the trigger and go learn with her!! I'm so thankful

Miss Jess taught our kids for 2 years, and we loved her lessons! She moved away from where we live and we miss her dearly. She is a wonderful teacher and we highly recommend her!

Online Violin Teacher

I have been teaching violin since 1998. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

About Doyle

"Miss Phoebe is an excellent, patient instructor for my two young violinists! She is prompt, and has lots of tools in her tool kit to bring about proper posture, tone, sound. She exhibits a very warm kind discipline that makes clear her expectations without being mean about it at all. I think my kids have made significant progress under her tutelage and I would definitely recommend her for any skill level!"

"It was apparent in the first lesson that Susanna is an experienced, understanding, thorough, and patient teacher. She carefully covered all the basics: different parts of the violin, proper posture, finger positions, etc., making it easy for our daughter to get started on the violin. She corrected our daughter’s mistakes right away and moved on only when our daughter got a good grasp of the material."
