About Jacqueline

As of 4/28 I will be fully vaccinated and am accepting in person students two weeks after that. Hello future students! I've been playing violin for 23 of my 29 years of age and teaching for 13 years. I believe that the most important part of learning the violin is having fun and building a pass

Jacqueline is an amazing teacher and musician. Not only is she a master player but a gifted teacher. The two talents don't always go hand in hand. She quickly had me playing songs while also instilling the important basics of learning a good bow hand, fingering and ear training. Jae -- that's the name she goes by -- is a one of a kind find!

Jacqueline has been very patient and kind - best violin teacher ever!

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!

I decided that I wanted to learn how to play an instrument much later in life than most. On top of the late start, I knew little to nothing about music. All of these factors discouraged me for a long time and some teachers I've tried added to that anxiety. One day I came across Zachary's profile and decided to give it one more chance , little did I know it would be one of the single greatest decisions I've ever made for myself. Coming to the table with as little knowledge as I had, including not being a young kid, was not a problem at all for Zachary. He has an ease about him when he teaches and is always patient and kind. Never once did he talk down to me or make me feel like something was impossible.
If you have a chance to have him as your teacher, you will not regret it. Let him help you learn, improve, and bring out the very best in you like he did with me.
Maria J.
I love Zachary's teaching method. He is very friendly and easy to understand. He is very passionate about teaching and it shows. I have progressed a lot after only a few lessons, and I will continue to take lessons from him. I highly recommend him :)

If I were to say 15 years on the violin, that would be a shocking time. I did earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Music where I received most of my education in both violin and piano. In my perspective, the violin is such an intricate instrument and I am blessed to work with students in wanting to learn violin. It’s true where putting the hard work in violin takes you where you need to be. It does require Practice! I am willing to work with the student and help them grow in advancing this instrument. Let’s keep in touch!

I had a great first lesson with Damien. He is patient and extremely considerate. Damien took the time to determine a baseline of my general knowledge. He answered my questions and fully explained the concepts that we discussed. At all times I felt that I was having a positive experience and I have set goals for my next lesson. I am energized and motivated to continue and look forward to my next lesson with Damien.

I am a violinist from Texas with over 20 years of playing experience in many literatures including the Suzuki book curriculum, traditional folk/bluegrass songs, and contemporary music. I am excited to join this team in order to utilize my experience of 2 years in teaching in order to provide specialized lessons in beginner/intermediate levels and guaranteeing the utmost success for all of my students who choose to enroll and learn at a rate that they have never thought was possible through my unique self-teaching regimen that has allowed me to learn music independently for many years.

By enrolling, you will expect to receive whatever help and assistance you need in order to become a strong violinist. Such examples, but not limited to, include note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique. Thank you for your time in reading!

She is very thorough and encouraging, and introduces interesting music that is fun and challenging for a beginner student. Our daughter says she can truly feel her own improvement, and is really happy to have additional lessons with Lauren, beyond what she receives in school.
