Private Violin Teacher

In my private violin/viola studio, I am helping my students to love the learning process. If a student wants to play an instrument for their enjoyment, he comes to me. If students have ambitions to get prepared for the test or audition, they know they will get help. For students who would like to prepare for the evaluating test, I contribute to preparing for the ABRSM (Associated Board of School of Music) exams. If a student is a beginner, I teach using the Suzuki Method.

I love helping students to achieve what they want. By learning their abilities, I help them to enjoy playing an instrument.

Jacqueline has been very patient and kind - best violin teacher ever!
Dorothy
This review is long overdue! Jacqueline has been so patient and kind with me in my violin journey. I truly appreciate her passion for the violin and for teaching. My bow hand has never looked better!
Adam S.
I started taking lessons with Jacqueline after having bought a violin and done some practicing on my own for a few months. She was quickly able to formulate lesson plans for me based on my background and experience. She has also been very good about correcting my technique and pushing me to challenge myself, and is always helpful in answering my many questions. Overall she is a very knowledgeable, professional, down-to-earth and friendly instructor.

Our family loves Matthew. He's brought music back into our home and even my 3-year-old enjoys being a part of my lessons. I've had my great-grandfather's violin since I was 10, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Matthew 3 years ago, that I really started to play and understand foundational scales, key signatures and positions. It's opened up a whole world for me, and now I love playing the violin. For the legacy, the beautiful music and the joy it brings into my life and our home.
Eliza James
Matthew is a fantastic teacher. I’ve known him for 20 yrs and have had many lessons. I recommend him for any level and students of any age. If you want to rekindle your love for music Matthew is your perfect teacher.

Online Violin Teacher

I want to serve as a supportive and instructional figure that helps cultivate an appreciation of music for all students. In order to do this, I believe it's important to prioritize personal student progress rather than subscribe to a fixed game plan. That being said I take on a relaxed adaptive teaching style that tailors to the student. It's my hope that all students feel comfortable working and discussing music topics with me as I believe thoughtful conversations, whether straightforward or abstract, is an essential learning technique.

About Kristin

I am a classically trained violist and string instrument enthusiast, born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I attended and graduated from Western Michigan University with a BM in music performance and have since worked as a music teacher in San Diego. I am the strings director at Double Peak Scho

How to Improve Your Musicality

Just What is Musicality, Anyway? Musicality is defined in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as “the quality of being musical.” What does that mean, though? Is there a method to defining what is musical versus what is not? One can instinctively hear when a phrase sounds natural, beautiful, convincing -  musical - versus when it is not. Phrasing, much like public speaking, can be made more or less convincing depending on the manner with which you deliver a phrase. Quantz, the famous …
