Nicolle A.

Sandy, UT

About Nicolle

At the age of 3, I began playing the violin and was taught through the Suzuki Method. Before ever learning to read a note, I learned to play by ear- learning to listen and imitate, much as a child learns to imitate sounds and speak before learning the letters of the alphabet. This ear training, in combination with note reading and other techniques, created the groundwork for the rest of my life as a musician!

The moment that would change my life as a musician came at age 12 while performing with Disney's Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra in Chicago. We had the opportunity to perform wit
h violinist Vanessa Mae. I had never seen someone that could inspire so much electric energy and, at the same time, put such tender, heartfelt emotion into every note. A new fire and zeal for music was born in me that I can never forget!

That passion for music has driven me to reach for every performance and training opportunity possible and to help others do the same. In completing my bachelor's degree in Viola Performance at the Jacob's School of Music at Indiana University, I brushed shoulders with mentors who not only shaped me as a performing musician but also as a teacher. Participating in the Suzuki Pedagogy program provided the ultimate hands-on opportunity to teach, alongside other professionals, and mold beginning violinists in their first steps.

I have been teaching privately for the past 10 years, helping beginning through advanced students ranging in age from 4 to 52. It's been unbelievably rewarding watching each student's life change with music. My young beginners love the creative outlet that playing the violin and viola provides. The discipline they develop in learning to play crosses musical boundaries and can be seen in their schoolwork and other daily routines. My adult students love the opportunity to begin the musical journey they had only dreamed of in the past; or, the chance to "dust off" their instruments that they put by the wayside as a child. Equally rewarding is teaching those students with fundamentals already in place to stretch and turn their technique into expressive, musical lines!

I love the opportunity to get to know the unique personalities and styles of EACH of my students and to help them put this qualities into their playing! Let me help you discover the musician waiting to come out in you!...

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach 30 minute, 45 minute, and 1 hour lessons. (For students younger than 8 years of age, 30 minute or 45 minute lessons are recommended.) Each of my lessons is taught one-on-one in my in-home studio.

I teach a combination of the Suzuki Method and traditional styles. The Suzuki Method creates a strong technical foundation to build upon while also training the ear to work independently of note reading. I combine this method with a more traditional approach as I feel it important for the student's involvement and enjoyment to play recognizable tunes.

What to expect in a lesson:

Beginners:
- Learning to correctly hold the violin/viola and bow with proper position
- Learning the names of notes and placement of fingers
- Note and rhythm training/reading; key and time signature training
- Ear training
- Beginning level Suzuki and traditional pieces

Intermediate:
- Ensuring that proper positioning and posture is upheld
- Scale and rhythm training; key and time signature training
- Ear training
- Intermediate level Suzuki and traditional pieces
- Learning shifting exercises and vibrato

Advanced:
- Scale and rhythm training exercises/etudes
- Ear training
- Advanced level Suzuki pieces and/or traditional and other classical pieces

For the first lesson:

Beginners: Please bring your violin (appropriate for your size), bow, shoulder rest, Suzuki Volume 1 with CD, notepad, and folder.

Intermediate-Advanced: Please bring your violin, bow, shoulder rest, notepad, folder, and your most recently performed/polished piece.

Parental involvement in younger students' lessons and at-home practicing is HIGHLY encouraged! (For those students 8 years of age or younger, parents are REQUIRED to be at every lesson!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Violin/Viola (for teacher use), music stand, metronome, recording device, laptop

Missing her a lot.

When She was in Toronto Canada,
my daughter started violin lesson
with Nicolle.
The way of her teaching was so attractive
and skilful and patience.She is also
great performer.
Too bad that we can't find any teacher
like her.But it was such a fortune that
my daughter had learn fundamental basic
from her.
We miss her a lot but great fortune for

Kristin J.

Salt Lake City, UT

About Kristin

Hi, I'm Kristin J, and I'm excited to meet you!

In 15+ years of teaching voice, my students have gone on to sing professionally for opera companies, in folk/acoustic bands, to study performance and music education in college, and some have simply enjoyed the confidence that comes with learning how to sing and improve their quality of life.

I recently relocated from NYC, where I sang with several opera companies, in a music theater festival, on tour in Jakarta, Indonesia, and at Lincoln Center. Professionally, I've sung opera, cross-over, music theater, sacred music, and spirituals with
opera companies, in recital, and as a church musician. Currently I sing with the Utah Opera chorus.

I have a MM in Opera from ASU, a BM in Voice from FSU, and am a recent grad of the William Esper Studio for Actors.

While I'm most at home in the classical world, I encourage my students to develop healthy vocal habits and sing what they enjoy.

Kristin Jensen is a vibrant and determined coach who brings out the best in her students. As a colleague of hers, I have had the pleasure if watching many of her students in action and they perform with refined talent and confidence. She teaches solid technique and makes learning fun. Always an inspiration to her students, Kristin is a teacher who not only can teach but is beautifully talented at performing herself. She brings real-life experience into the classroom and will give you 100%! You will love her!

Kristin Jensen is an effective communicator and she is passionate about teaching. I studied with Kristin for about two years while preparing for college auditions. Her advice, knowledge, and assistance helped me tremendously as I began to study classical singing. She has the practical and educational experience to help any student to be their best!

Gregory H.

Salt Lake City, UT

About Gregory

I help my students discover and develop their own sound and use their own natural voice. I show them ways of using the voice that are new, adding on to what they already know, to make confident musicians who sing with ease and power.

I love aiding in the discovery process and being a part of the journey of curiosity my students embark on to identify their own natural voice. Together we cultivate musical skills which uncover this hidden gem and transform it into an impressive instrument of expression.
