I began teaching violin and viola in 2012. I have enjoyed working with students of varying ages, who thus far have ranged from age 3.5 to adult. Each one of my students is unique, and I appreciate that in each lesson, I can focus on the needs and strengths of that individual student. On my own, I particularly enjoy playing with other people. I often play harmony parts with my students when they have mastered their current piece both to help verify their competency and to acclimate them to playing with others. I currently play viola with the San Francisco Civic Symphony and sight-read chamber music with fellow musicians. I have greatly enjoyed both teaching music and learning about music pedagogy through the Suzuki Association of the Americas.

Mrs. Jen has been a violin teacher for our daughter for 3.5 years. She is an extremely qualified and talented musician who deeply cares about her students and is committed to teaching. She is kind and patient, but also effective and motivating. When our 8 year old daughter learned Mrs. Jen was moving she said, "I probably will never have as neat or special of a violin teacher as Mrs. Jen"- and she's right!

First lesson was fine. We took a few minutes to find each other in a cafe setting but as it was also a meet and greet session I wasn't too concerned about time. As it turns out Beth more than made up the time. She's very pleasant and easy to speak with. We went over my goals, simple traveler type words, phrases and questions, and a work schedule to cover the next several weeks. Beth told me how she was going to approach teaching me after listening to my goals. I'm looking forward to the next session where we can focus on learning the language.

I teach beginner and intermediate violin students helping them develop their bow technique and intonation.

About Yoon Jae
I am a highly-skilled professional musician certified as a certified Steinway education partner with over 14 years of teaching experience. I offer lessons in classical piano, violin, viola, conducting, arranging/orchestration as well as private tutoring in ear training and theory.

My main instrument is piano and I specialize in teaching students who already play the instrument and wish to get a more in-depth experience with piano literature by learning new repertoire and developing their technique. I also teach adult beginners and young beginners whose parents have a dedicated commitment to having their children make music an integral part of their education. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently and developing critical listening skills. This encourages consistent improvement and whatever your perso
nal piano goals and skill levels are, I will help you improve and enjoy playing the piano more. I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of your desire to play the piano better. In addition to piano, I teach beginner and intermediate violin and viola students.

I encourage all my students to perform once or twice a year but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level.

I am available and willing to travel to your home for an extra fee as long as public transportation is available.

I'm so glad I ended up with Yoon Jae for my very first violin lesson. He took me through the first steps - as basic as holding the violin - really carefully and not at all condescendingly, even though I'm an adult who never even learned to read music. In fact, he couldn't have been more patient. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn violin in a supportive atmosphere!

I've been teaching violin for about 6 years and am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts in Performance at CU-Boulder. Having taught as a private teacher for younger students as well as a Teaching Assistant for a String Methods class in my undergrad, I am extremely comfortable working with a wide range of ages and skill levels. I teach classical and Suzuki style, as well as basic music theory, note-reading, and other skills based on the student's needs and skill set.

About Ava
A recent Master of Music graduate of University of Colorado Boulder, Ava began her violin studies at the age of six. During her undergraduate degree at Truman State University, Ava was a two-time Gold Medal Concerto Competition finalist and regularly appeared as concertmaster with the Truman State Symphony orchestra, where she has also held the positions of principal second violinist and principal violist.

As an active chamber musician, Ava was the first violinist in Truman State University’s President’s String Quartet, the university’s only highly competitive string chamber ensemble. She toured Italy twice with the President’s String Quartet, performing recitals in 2013 and 2015.

At CU, Ava has served as concert master and principal second violinist of the Eklund Opera Orchestra, principal second violinist of the University of Co
lorado Chamber Orchestra, and as a section violinist with the University of Colorado Symphony Orchestra. During the summer of 2016, she travelled to Italy as part of CU's "Renaissance in the XXI Century" program where she studied with Alberto Bologni and performed a wide variety of chamber music.

Ava is currently pursuing her Doctorate of Music in Violin Performance at the University of Colorado-Boulder under Professor Harumi Rhodes. Her past teachers include Dr. Sam McClure, Julie Lundgren, and Kathy Karpicke.

Violin teacher as of 9 years, I teach beginning through advanced lessons. Suzuki Violin school, Essential Elements 2000, shifting skills, theory, and standard concerto literature. I focus on training students with proper technique and how they want to be trained: classical, orchestral, pop, and fiddle. Students will need: an instrument, metronome, shoulder rest, and specified books (discussed at the first lesson).

My goal is to teach you to play what you love and love what you play.

About Michelle
Michelle picked up the violin at the unusual age of 12 years old. Despite the challenges of learning such a difficult instrument at an “older” age, she excelled, leading her to believe in students of all ages. Just a few years into learning the violin, she was approached to teach private lessons by several families. Knowing where her love was planted, she pursued and earned her Bachelor’s of Music in String Pedagogy in 2014, graduating with honors and multitudes of experience: orchestra, score reading, and assistant directing youth orchestras, etc….Since her studies, she has continued in professional teaching. Her accomplishments include private instruction in violin, viola, and cello. In addition, she developed group ensembles as well as a youth orchestra. Michelle loves bringing the joy of music into peoples lives and encourages excelle
nce in all areas of musical understanding.

Never too late to begin learning/relearning (classical/pop) violin! My lessons focus on both sightreading and aural skills to make a well-rounded musician.

I make sure I am meeting the specific needs of each student, help them reach their individual goals, and most importantly, make lessons fun.

About Eric
I enjoy sharing my love of music by helping others embark on their musical journeys. I am a strong supporter of using a combination of aural training and sightreading to boost musicality and finesse.

In the past 6 years, I have taught students of all ages, ranging from children to seniors. You are never ever too old to learn the piano or the violin. You may not be the next Chopin, but with practice and dedication, you will eventually be able to play the mass majority of piano/violin repertoire.

Strong fundamentals (scales/chords/arpeggios) are important, but I also remember to make music fun and not boring by providing diverse selections of supplemental (pop/ragtime/blues) pieces.

Eric knows a wide range of repertoire and we listened to various pieces by different composers and genres to see what music I like. As someone who is very new to classical music, he prevented piano learning from being too overwhelming. He challenges you so you can reach higher and help you do your best.

I have extensive teaching experience ranging from beginning learners as young as 3 years old, to the older adult student learning for the first time, or bringing the violin or viola back into their lives. Prior teaching positions also include collegiate level instruction at Drake University (Iowa), Grinnell College (Iowa), and Richland College (Texas) as well as instruction within the Drake University Community School of Music, and after-school group classes at Montessori schools. I enjoy teaching students at all levels, competitive, or non-competitive. I incorporate Suzuki Method principles and repertoire into my teaching, but I also have experience with a range of traditional methods that suit students of different needs and goals. I am always interested in serving the student first and in creating an open dialogue with students and parents on what I believe their technical and musical needs are in order to meet our goals together as student and teacher.

I'm a full-time professional musician who lives and works out of Fort Collins, Colorado. I was classically trained on violin through the Suzuki Method from age 8 to 18, and I've since been touring the country and playing gigs in the bluegrass "fiddle" style with my band, Head for the Hills.

Whether trying to learn classical violin techniques or old-time fiddle tunes, my students receive a well-rounded education that focuses on their individual strengths and interests without glossing over fundamentals and basic core techniques. If you're brand new to the instrument or if you're looking to expand your existing skill set, I'd love to help you reach your goals!

Students must be at least 7 years of age, self-motivated, and serious about learning the violin.

About Joseph
I am a touring musician who has traveled the country and world with my bluegrass band, Head for the Hills, for the last 15 years. I graduated from the University of Colorado, Denver in 2010 with a bachelors degree in Music and Entertainment Industry Studies, with a focus in music business.

I now live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my partner, Allie, and our two rescue chihuahuas. I'm always thrilled to teach what I've learned and figured out over my years of touring on students of all ages and skill levels.

I teach out of the Music District here in Fort Collins, a state-of-the-art, beautiful space located in the heart of downtown. I'm most versed in bluegrass and classical styles, but I'm open to exploring any genre a student has interest in, including amplified and electric violin styles.
