Violin lessons with me are entertaining. We will learn from Suzuki that has music like twinkle twinkle little start, etc. The beginner Will be interested to learn those pieces of music and will try to play it on the violin. We will also learn from "Essential Elements for Strings" for the violin to make sure that we have a good posture and great sound. I have been teaching violin since I was 17 years. My student ages are from five years old to 13 years old. I taught violin at the Episcopalian church of Stamford CT from 2008 to 2015. I love working with kids and seeing their progress.

LisaJo is so patient and she shows me lots of details I should pay attention to.
I highly recommend her to other students.
Katie
Best teacher ever!!!!! I went from knowing absolutely nothing about the violin to playing in the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra after 2yrs of lessons. Through our lessons together Mrs. Lisa Jo taught me technique yes, but she also taught me so much more. She instilled in me a love for music and it’s many intricacies that I will cherish forever. Truly an amazing teacher
Praneeth
I had the privilege of being one of Lisa's private violin students back when she was teaching in Naperville, IL. I had her as my private teacher for about four to five years before she moved away. I have to say that in that time, she taught me all of the best fundamental aspects of violin playing that I implement to this very day as an instructor and performer. These aspects include posture, technique, sound quality, tone, bow styles, repertoire history, and more. It was Lisa's love of violin playing and teaching that gave me the roots that I needed to become an accomplished musician and overall performer. It has been roughly 11 years since I've had Lisa as my private teacher. But we are still in contact as if she was still my instructor. Currently, I am now a qualified orchestra director at a high school, I teach out of my own private studio, and I also have my BS in Music and MM in String Pedagogy. I can say with my professional opinion that with Lisa as your private teacher, you will be well taken care of in your tutelage of learning either violin, viola, or cello.

Eunice is amazing! One of the best teachers I have ever had. She explains everything very well and is encouraging and is VERY effective for virtual lessons, I was really impressed at how well virtual lessons went! She is great and I highly recommend her!

So far, so good: after his first lesson, my son (who has been practicing for a year) seemed to get some really valuable correction to his form. He says it this way: "She's really good at explaining why and how."

"It was my first lesson and now I have some idea how hold the violin and the bow. My homework is to practice a few notes on each string and then to practice playing the A scale. I think I can do it in two octaves. What is challenging is to play the scale without hearing a screeching sound. I'm looking forward to playing like Sarah Chang (hopefully after five lessons)."

"I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin."
