Private Violin Teacher

My teaching is a combination of Suzuki Method, ABRSM pieces, and Traditional Method. I used fingering, bowing exercises or etudes for the pieces to make it easier to play.

I am very sincere and sensitive to my students because every student is unique and it is very important that you have to connect with them. I teach by heart and provide what they wanted to achieve in violin playing and so its worth and satisfying.

All of my students will learn how to play well with good intonation and proper posture. Students can choose to play their favorite pieces for fun, either Classical or Pop music . We can also enjoy some duet pieces.

Violin playing is fun but it involves patience, discipline, PRACTICE and determination. Lesson can be held in West Valley Music depending on the studio's room availability. Give me your availability and i will try to fit you in.

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!
Becca
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.

I had my very first lesson today with Sal, and I’m excited about some very cute things he taught me in just a short period of time. He is very talented, approachable, enjoyable to work with, and knows what he’s doing. I look forward to learning and growing with him.

This brief lesson was helpful, especially since its my first time learning. I learned a few chords and now have some homework to do. Very personable and straightforward! I just moved back to Dallas and needing some instructions to finally get started.

He doesn't push, and he's encouraging which helps keep me motivated. He's funny and we get along just great. He played a little for me at my last session at my request, and it brought me to tears. He plays beautifully! I look forward to my sessions."

We have seen more progress and interest than we ever could have imagined when we initially said yes to violin lessons. Kristen is patient, friendly, flexible and so so so talented.
