Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching violin for seven years. Though I am classically trained, my interest in music goes far beyond classical music. I am constantly listening to various genres of music and consider myself a forever learner, loving everything in music from Prokofiev to the Flaming Lips. It is my job to help guide my students through their musical journeys, whether that is helping them get into their regional orchestra or teaching them that one song they've always wanted to learn. I teach out of the Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books. Though my lessons are fun and relaxed I will always give my students that extra push when needed. My goal is to help each student reach their personal success and to instill a love for playing music.

Tools for lessons:

Music Stand
Rosin
Shoulder rest or sponge
Previous method books (if you are not a first time learner)
Metronome
Pencil

Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching children of all age groups to acquire a solid foundation in violin playing. Whether it be pre-K beginners, or high school students getting ready for college auditions, I will communicate with the students and parents to set a number of goals to achieve.
I also welcome adult students, beginners and amateur enthusiasts alike.

In addition to gaining expertise in the techniques in violin playing, students in my studio will be given opportunities to gain comprehensive music knowledge including theory, sight singing, ear training, and any relevant music history, as the above-mentioned knowledge are indispensable elements in violin playing. Singing and clapping are essential parts of the lesson. When students are equipped with the basics, they can play anything and make the music they want.

My son has been taking violin lessons with Dongbin for almost 3 years since he started playing at age 5. Dongbin has been a great teacher, and my son enjoys learning from him. His lessons include not only violin playing, but also clapping rhythms, singing notes, and other exercises that have been effective ways of learning for my son, while keeping him engaged throughout the lesson. Dongbin recognizes my son’s strengths in playing violin, but also identifies the skills and techniques that he should focus on to become a better player and to build a strong foundation as he progresses. He also gives suggestions to help sharpen those skills while practicing at home. We have been very pleased with our experience with Dongbin as our son’s violin teacher.

Wonderful teacher! I'm an adult student and his instructions are clear and easy to understand.

Very patient with those trying to learn, and a very fun person to talk to, whether it be about the instrument or anything else.
Elizabeth F.
Joe is a fun, professional and talented teacher! He gave me advice and etudes that really helped me play interesting breaks at gigs. Have your questions and goals ready to tell him, and he will give you exactly what you need to sound better. He is very intuitive and understanding, and he will use every minute of your time efficiently with practical exercises that work. He was also very responsible, dependable, easy to reach and punctual. I'm scheduling more lessons with him!

Jake
I didn’t understand secondary dominants and figured bass, but Emily helped me decipher it. She was very friendly, and provided thorough explanations, and I’m doing much better with my theory classes now thanks to her!
Melissa
I had major performance anxiety surrounding tests and auditions. Emily was always very patient with me and knew the difference between my poor singing and when it was just my anxiety. She never made me feel bad about messing up and throughout the year I became so comfortable with her I only stuttered on really difficult sight singing. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a teacher that is not only great at teaching but also incredibly considerate.
Cameron
I had Emily as a TA for aural skills for 2 years and she worked with me both online and in person. Throughout my ear training, she was always supportive and patient with me as she helped me through all the material I struggled with. 10/10.

I initially started lessons with Jessica in CA. When I moved to the other side of the country four years ago, we decided to try ways to continue online. After some trial and error, I’m so glad we stuck with it. It’s worked out beautifully even before “Social Distance” was a thing!
Jeanne
Jessica is not only a very talented musician but a great teacher! Her instruction was clear and understandable and she seemed dedicated to her students. I was an adult student and had always wanted to learn to play the violin. I took lesson for three years until my schedule became too busy. I would definitely recommend her to potential students of all ages.
Nate
Jessica's mix of outstanding skill as a professional musician, her effective read of how different personality types approach music, and her distinct ability to transfer skill and understanding through a teaching mentorship - were THE factors that brought me back to the violin after a hiatus brought about by a poor match between me and a previous teacher. Whether music theory or technique, Jessica's teaching helped me through barrier after barrier. I am so fortunate to have found her.

"I had not played a string instrument since 2011, and I remembered very little (if any) technique. After just one lesson with Ms. Suljic, I found myself getting a pretty good sound out of the violin... something I had not heard myself make in 8 years!! I found that she adapted to my skill level very quickly, and was super attentive to my needs. I plan on continuing my lessons with Ms. Suljic!! and I would definitely recommend you start taking lessons, too! You won't regret it."
