Have you been playing for a long time, or have you never picked up the instrument before? Whether you are a child or an adult, I have a style of teaching for you. I've been playing since I was a child and have a special place in my heart for the is instrument. I actually began learning from a fiddle player and trained classically later. If you want to learn how to succeed in playing this rewarding and satisfying style, this is the place for you.
Are wondering why every time you hit a certain note, it squeaks, or crunches, or sounds glassy? Or maybe you can't quite read the notes. Perhaps you are no stranger to the instrument, but need improvement of musicianship, expression, etc. Let me help you master the skills you're trying to achieve. With my help, you can make breathtaking music!

I have been working with Kim for a few weeks and I have learned a tremendous amount and can hear the difference every week as I progress. I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well. I actually tried a few vocal teachers and Kim with her wisdom and experience made it simple who to go with!!

My passion for the violin is undeniable but changing lives with this beautiful instrument and bringing the best out of YOU is what I thrive for! I create a fun and exciting atmosphere along with my 16+ years of experience to turn anyone into a passionate violinist.

I have had major events happen in my life which inspired me to become a mental health advocate/musician, which music is therapeutic and have been devoted to being someone who’s caring, diverse, determined and understanding. I make learning an instrument very exciting, enjoyable for all ages, whether you’re just getting started or already have experience (Beginners/Intermediate). It’s an unforgettable journey that you could always rely on to be exciting and efficient!

In 2003 I started playing the violin and became concert master (first chair) in my orchestra from Aug. 2003 - May 2012. During that time period, I performed in an honors orchestra from 2005 - 2007. After graduating high school in May 2012, I continued ...

Jaclyn is truely amazing, such a patient and wonderful musician and teacher. My 11 yr.old grandson has gained so much from Jaclyn's teachings. Thank you Jaclyn for you amazing talent and patience with my grandson. 🎻♥️

Hands Down the best violin teacher in the Sacramento area! From the flexibility she has with time to the amazing way she teaches. I am a beginner who couldn’t even read music. I told her that was what I was most concerned about. I was able to learn not only to read music but also the background to the music I was learning. To me that was key to learning. Will definitely recommend to anyone that wants to learn the violin!!

I highly recommend Jaclyn. My son was struggling with his practices, she worked with him and gave him the confidence to succeed.

All of my beginner students begin with Essential Elements Book 1. After completion of the book, I move to Book 2 that focuses on scales and technique. Studies are supplemented with additional scale and technique books as we progress.

My intermediate and advanced students begin by playing a piece, etude, exercise, etc. that they have been focusing on. This allows me to assess their current level and how to progress.

I focus specifically on proper form for all ages and technique while still incorporating musicality. All students should be taught musicality and technique together not one or the other. Our lessons will also involve mental and physical practice technique.

"Keiko is that rare combination--an accomplished violinist AND a great teacher. Hard to come by... Her passion for music is contagious and, for her students, inspiring. Keiko taught my husband and my daughter. Her approach was different for each and tailored to challenge but never pressure them. Her engaging style and good sense of humor made lessons fly by, and when it came time to practice, motivated them. As a person, she's wonderful too. As a teacher, she's a gift."

"Maureen keeps our child motivated

Our eleven-year-old child "J" has been taking violin lessons from Maureen for one year. J expected to pick up the violin and play right off the bat, but the most fundamental part of the process is learning to read the music. This was somewhat frustrating and disappointing to J at the time, but Maureen encouraged and reinforced the basics so that a solid foundation is established. She encourages regular practice time rather than demanding it, communicating to J that the reward to consistent practice is improvement. J feels great about the accomplishment. Self-discipline has been instilled through this process. We enjoy hearing the progression of skill level at practice time over the past year. The sound is lovely. J is allowed to choose music that J is interested in. While Maureen is pleasant and responds immediately to any scheduling communication with us - the parents - she is first and foremost J's teacher and communicates all homework to J (not us). J is becoming more independent and responsible through this journey, enjoying the instrument and appreciating the skill of accomplished musicians. Maureen has also helped J with vocal exercises for school performances, so she is a versatile instructor. J looks forward to going to the lessons with Maureen and is sad when there is an off week."

"Elizabeth is a phenomenal instructor! Both kind and patient, she is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to help me understand the nuances of technique or the background of a particular piece of music. I'm nowhere near a natural player, but her approach to structuring my lessons and practice activities fits my needs as a learner, especially considering that I am an adult student juggling a myriad of other responsibilities. Elizabeth is adept at tailoring her lessons and long-term approach to my growth as a player to my skills and challenges, so that I not only immensely enjoy the experience, but also feel the growth I am making each and every week. She's the best I've ever had!!"

Get Smarter and Have a Blast Taking Violin Lessons in Sacramento!

By Kimberly B. - Sacramento Violin Teacher

Since there was sound, music has been a thought-provoking mystery present in every culture and every age, and its effects on brain development are widely acknowledged. Thomas Jefferson is said to have played the violin in order to figure out the wording he wanted to use in the Declaration of Independence, and Einstein himself said that the reason he was so smart is because he played the violin.

There are many reasons to take violin lessons in Sacramento. Playing the violin has been proven to make the brain “fire quicker,” which leads to faster reading and writing comprehension. Music is all about understanding and analyzing patterns, which is also true in math; so it makes sense that high school students who study music have both higher grade point averages and SAT scores than those who don't. Non-musical abilities such as literacy, verbal memory, Visio spatial processing, and IQ have been proven to be higher in children who were taking Suzuki violin lessons.

Additionally, violin exercises both sides of the brain: studying technique uses the left brain, and the creative process uses the right brain. Researcher Oliver Sacks discovered music can animate people with Parkinson's disease who cannot otherwise move, give words to stroke patients who cannot otherwise speak, and calm and organize people whose memories are ravaged by Alzheimer's or amnesia.

So whether you're young or old, you too can benefit from taking violin lessons in Sacramento. Take charge of your future and choose to enrich your life or a loved one's life with the gift of violin lessons!
