Whether you're 3 or 103, if you're playing violin (or starting to play!) I hope you're EXCITED about it!! Over the years, my students have said that their lessons are/have been their favorite times of each week. I believe learning to play viola should be full of joy, learning, thinking, and feeling. Bring that joy alive for yourself by partnering with me as your musical guide. I bring over 30 years of experience and pure joy to my work, and I'd love to share that with you!

About Jill
I've been in and around music all my life. I started violin at age 5, part of the first generation of Suzuki violinists in the United States. I've loved being a professional violinist and violin teacher for over 30 years! And I've also founded and directed three community music schools in Newburyport, Boston, and Manhattan.

I hold Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Violin Performance, and I'm lucky to have had wonderful experiences during my formal training! In my undergraduate years, I was awarded a full 4-year scholarship for string quartet and chamber music playing, which was invaluable as a real-world training. In graduate school, I was fortunate to learn so much as a Teaching Assistant for undergraduate violin students.

I have also been an innovator in musical education, and I've felt honored to coach numerous already gift
ed violin teachers who have sought me out to improve their techniques for best teaching practices. From my 30+ years of private violin teaching and observing how children learn, I developed a super fun groundbreaking class in New York City for 2.5 to 5 year old beginners called Crackerjack Kidz! And a few years ago, I wrote a text to accompany young students and their families.

I continuously work to be a master teacher dedicated to the very best methods, using a variety and combination of techniques and strategies tailored to the student's musical success and enjoyment.

My specialties include music-based early childhood development, adult beginners and continuing learners, intermediate and advanced players, and chamber music coaching.

I welcome you to start your family's musical journey with me!

*** Lesson Details ***
While each lesson is different, we always try to spend a little time warming up, making sure we're comfortable and free of tension, reviewing what we've worked on, and layering in new concepts each time. We also learn age appropriate music theory (the "why's" of how music works), we exercise our imaginations, and we learn how to effectively practice.

We learn to think, solve problems, hear the music in our minds, and coordinate our bodies to play beautifully! Along the way we learn skills for life, the joy of accomplishment, and love of ourselves and others!

Whether you're a toddler or a senior, violin can always teach new things and help students appreciate more about themselves and the world!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room with keyboard and computer. Parents can sit it on lessons, and are enouraged to do so with young students.

*** Specialties ***
I'm a classically trained violinist and a master teacher with over 30 years of experience. I've been teaching Suzuki violin to children ages 3 and up for my whole career, and I'm also extremely comfortable with traditional methods for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of any age.

My specialties include:
music-based early childhood development
adult beginners and continuing learners
intermediate and advanced players
chamber music coaching.

Learning Violin has been my passion whole life and I found the best teacher who could help me learn it perfect and beautiful. Every lesson with Jill is fun and enlightening at the same time. She can understand my negatives so well and focus on them while also teaching me to move forward correctly. She understands the level we are at and adjusts each lesson accordingly which is very helpful for a beginner. Its been a year I've started learning violin with Jill and it has been a great year so far. She is the best.

My 11 year old daughter has had 3 lessons with Jill now. We love her! She is knowledgeable, approachable, and not only KNOWS the violin, but understands how to TEACH the violin. Jill has a way of infusing humor and lightheartedness into her lessons, while simultaneously teaching concepts and skills integral to building the foundation to great violin playing. My daughter looks forward to her lessons every week and is motivated to practice. Jill is a true pro at what she does and I feel lucky to have found her.

Detailed work and listening to what you are playing, inside and outside the lesson.

About Jonathan
I have studied with Wanchi Huang at James Madison University for six years. At JMU, I earned a Bachelor of Music and a Master of Music, both in violin performance. I received my D.M.A. at Catholic University of America, studying with Jody Gatwood. When I was a student at JMU, I taught several students privately. The students ranged from retirees to JMU faculty and students to adolescents. I am now teaching at Baltimore Talent Education Center, where I teach violin in small groups and individual lessons. The students at BTEC range from pre- kindergarden through high school. I also have festival experience. I have been a student at Brevard Music Center, Heifetz International Music Institute, BayView Music Festival, and I was a Teaching Fellow at Interlochen Arts Camp. Through my experiences both as a student and as a teacher, I un
derstand that every student is a little bit different. Every student has different strengths and weaknesses. Every student has a different learning style. Every student has a different way of understanding things, a different way of processing information, and a different personality all together. It will be my job as a teacher to get to know each student individually and use my teaching methods to teach the student how to play the violin and help him or her to reach his or her goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back person. I am easy-going, enthusiastic about violin playing and about teaching and learning music, and I am very patient with my students as well. However, I am also very demanding. I explain and demonstrate objectives in a very precise way, and I demand a lot of detailed work from my students, inside and outside the lesson. I explain specifically what I want the student to do. By the end of every lesson, the student will have specific things to work on for next time. I expect each student to make practicing a habit, and practice regularly what has been discussed in the lesson. I try to make the lessons as pleasant and as laid-back as possible. But I become more firm, serious, and strict when a student either is not making an effort or does not practice enough outside the lesson.
I start students off with the Suzuki method. We work on techniques to hold the violin properly, hold the bow properly, and get a decent sound out of the violin, without too much physical tension. A student begins by learning to play by ear. After he or she is comfortable playing by ear, we associate the notes that the student hears and plays on the violin with written notes on a page.
We also work with the Paul Roland methods so that the student can learn the violin in a basic, rudimentary way. It involves a lot of repetitive patterns, back and forth motions that are slow and round, and avoiding excessive tension. This will give the student the tools that he or she needs to learn how to play the violin in a short period of time.
In three to six months, a student who is a beginner will be able to hold the violin and bow comfortably, create a decent sound on the violin, and play the Twinkle Variations, and maybe a few other songs.
If the student has played violin before, then in three to six months, he or she will have had some rehabilitation to get rid of tension and force, overcome some bad habits he or she may have developed, and review the fundamentals of violin playing. I will improve the student's approach to the violin, and by the end of the three to six months, he or she will have a better idea on how to practice and play the violin.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, seating for parents in the living room,

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide a stand.
I will expect the student to have a violin, rosin, and a pencil.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki Method- a starting point, particularly for kids, but for people of all ages. It is a good way to begin learning the violin by playing by ear, developing a strong, clear tone, and bringing out one's individuality through his/her musical development and his/her ability to be expressive.

In a matter of time, I want the student to get used to reading music, in addition to playing by ear. This can be done through the pieces in the Suzuki method or through other music.

Eventually, I take the student off of the Suzuki method and work with him or her on classical repertoire.

For 10 years I've been teaching violin and viola to children in Southern California, developing their skills, instilling confidence, and building their independence. Students from my studio serve as section leaders in school orchestras around the San Gabriel Valley.

About Vivian
Vivian Wang has been teaching violin and viola privately since 2001. Since coming to America in 2008, she has built up studios in San Gabriel and Diamond Bar/Chino Hills. She has also worked as a Music Specialist for the San Gabriel and Garvey School Districts, where she coached strings and taught group string lessons.

Students in Ms. Wang's studios perform in a yearly recital, and the advanced among them often earn spots in youth symphony orchestras such as PYMO (Pasadena Young Musicians Orchestra), OYO (Olympia Youth Orchestra), and CYSO (Claremont Youth Symphony Orchestra). Ms. Wang also tutors music theory and musicianship, including the ABRSM and AP Music Theory curricula.

Ms. Wang uses the Suzuki method, combined with music theory and musicianship instruction where helpful, to develop complete young musicians: disciplined, se
lf-starting, and musically sensitive.

Aside from all the technical aspects of learning violin, I will coach you to become a confident musician. You will achieve this confidence by strengthening your skills and having fun at the same time!

You will learn: proper technique, music theory, music history, to sight-read, tune your violin, solos, collaborate with other musicians, how to conduct, and how to prepare for an audition.

I take the lessons at the student's learning pace, and I challenge them to get past mental barriers.

Whether you are playing as a hobby, interested in preparing for an audition, or simply need extra help, this is the place for you. You must be able to purchase/rent a violin.

If you want lessons in your home, contact me and we will see if I can make the arrangements, otherwise, lessons are held in my home studio, or online.

About Souaad
*Se habla Español! Mándeme un mensaje si tiene preguntas :) *

Hello there, curious musician to be!

Over the past few years I've developed the most beautiful relationships with my students, and their families. I've helped complete beginners gain enough skills, and confidence to perform in recitals in front of over 50 guests! If you're interested in performing, I host 2 recitals a year, and they're a huge hit!

Many of my students have auditioned, and been accepted into theater companies, and orchestras. Whether you are just starting out, or are looking to improve on your skills, this is the studio for you.

I started playing violin when I was 10 and have performed with several Honors Orchestras, mariachis, as well as professional groups. My Junior and Senior year of high school I was honored to be Concertmaster.

I began
my classical vocal training at San Diego State University in Spring of 2012. I was trained as a Soprano and an Alto because of my coachability, and musicianship. Since then I have worked with several talented and dynamic directors throughout my training experience. I have attended the annual San Diego Summer Choral Festival, as well as the Conducting Workshop, which consisted of an intensive choral training weekend followed by performances. I am also part of a professional choir in San Diego called Pro Arte Voices; we recently recorded our second CD on Spring '17. Lastly, I am a strong advocate for the arts in our community and am very proud to be a teacher. Most recently, I have started developing a choir program for the youth at a local church. In the near future I have plans of developing a music program for underprivileged youth, which would incorporate choir, and orchestra. I continue to work on myself so that I can always give my best to my students, and teach them something new. I look forward to making music with you, or your little one soon :)

Be a violin virtuoso!

About Jacqueline
Hello future students! I've been playing violin for 20 of my 25 years of age and teaching for 8 years. I believe that the most important part of learning the violin is having fun and building a passion for music.

In my lessons we will focus on proper violin technique, music theory and most importantly (and fun!) practical application. In practical application, the student chooses what he/she would like to work on, whether it be Mozart or The Chainsmokers or the Moana score, and we learn it together!

I am also proficient in music production/engineering which means that my students can professionally record themselves in my home studio.

If this sounds like fun to you - let's get started! :)

Teaching method:

I have a three pronged approach to my teaching method: technique, music theory and practical application. However, I
believe the most important part of any teaching plan is molding it to fit the student’s needs, so the following methods are entirely flexible.

TECHNIQUE
For technique, we start with simple scales to work on bowing and intonation. When this becomes easy for the student, we move on to more complex key signatures and minor scales, eventually moving into 2 octaves and learning the left hand positions. For intermediate students who want to excel in classical music, we will work on etudes as well as scales.

MUSIC THEORY
I teach music theory as it applies to what the student is currently playing so as not to cause confusion. For example, if the student is learning to play a new piece with a more complex rhythm, we will go over time signatures, how many beats each note gets and so on. I always make flashcards for students so they can “practice” music theory when I’m not there, especially for students who are just learning to read music.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION
In practical application, the student can apply what they learn about technique and music theory to a fun song. I start with the Suzuki books because I like the way they’re structured in terms of technique, and because I love the repertoire. Suzuki books generally come with a CD containing piano accompaniment tracks, which I’ve found students love to play with. Finally, I let the student pick a song of their choice and we learn it together. If the student isn’t enjoying Suzuki, we focus more on the student’s song of choice.

Thanks to Jacqueline, I have been able to pick up the violin again (after not playing for many years) and build back my technique reasonably quickly. She has an expansive library of musical exercises and songs that are perfect for making your practicing more efficient and your playing sound better. Over the last two years I’ve started to see her as less of a violin teacher and more of a violin guru. I high recommend her to any new/old violin student.

I've been teaching for 21 years, and 18 years as a full-time university professor. For beginners, I use the Suzuki literature, and gradually add exercises and studies, depending on the technical needs. For more experienced students, I use a variety of other methods. I'm a very positive and encouraging person, and students walk away with a broad smile and feeling of satisfaction!

My students have earned prestigious scholarships at major universities (including one at Cleveland Institute of Music), and got permanent positions with orchestras.

My past orchestral experience include the Spokane Symphony, Walla Walla (WA) Symphony (Concertmaster), McCall (ID) SummerFest Orchestra (Concertmaster), Yakima (WA) Symphony, Washington Idaho Symphony (Concertmaster), Wichita Grand Opera Orchestra, Madison (WI) Symphony, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Illinois Symphony, Illinois Chamber Orchestra, Missouri Chamber Orchestra, Hays (KS) Symphony (Concert
master), as well as the Budafoki Dohnanyi Symphony Orchestra (Budapest, Hungary)

I highly recommend Ferenc to anyone looking for a violin instructor in the Las Vegas area. I'm an adult beginner who has always wanted to learn the violin. I spent quite a while looking into teachers before I decided on Ferenc and I'm very happy with my choice. He's a very good teacher. I leave each lesson playing (at least a little) better than I did when I walked in. Ferenc knows his craft and he's very good at pointing out both your strengths and areas that could use improvement. He always gives me concrete things I can work on in between lessons and they help a lot. His instruction has been invaluable and I'm certain I wouldn't be progressing at the same rate if I had tried to learn on my own or even with a less skilled teacher. I look forward to continuing to work on my skills with his help.

We have three kids taking lessons (two violin and one cello), one of which transferred from another teacher. The transition from the other teacher to Ferenc was extremely smooth as she was able to pick up right where she left off. The other two started lessons with Ferenc and have progressed well. We are extremely pleased with his instruction.

The violin has been a constant and enriching presence throughout my life, and I enjoy helping people engage with this instrument that is demanding and rewarding in equal measure. No matter your age or level of expertise, I would be happy to help you along as you discover new musical territory. I’m most fluent in the classical style, but am happy to explore other areas with you as well, from bluegrass to Broadway.

About Kris
I have been teaching the violin to students of all ages and abilities for close to twenty years, and have had great satisfaction in seeing them all grow and develop over time. Some of my younger students have gone on to the Interlochen Arts Camp, and one of my former adult students still makes an annual summer pilgrimage to a chamber music festival in Ullapool, Scotland. Whatever your interest or ambition, I would be more than happy to help you along your way.

In addition to teaching, I am currently a member of the Delaware and West Virginia Symphony Orchestras, a former member of the Huntsville, Alabama Symphony Orchestra, and have performed as a substitute violinist with the Virginia Symphony, Richmond Symphony, Maryland Symphony, and National Philharmonic Orchestras. I hold a BM in violin from George Mason University.

As a private music instructor for more than five years, I am passionate about creating a teaching environment that is uniquely suited for each student’s needs. I teach violin and viola lessons and have experience in traditional/modern classical violin and viola, historical performance (baroque violin and viola, renaissance and medieval fiddling, etc.), and have dabbled in folk, bluegrass, jazz and Irish fiddle tunes as well. I'm happy to teach people of all ages and all levels of experience. I received my Bachelor of Music degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and studied viola performance and pedagogy at the Peabody Institute before completing my Master’s in Baroque viola. I am currently working on a Graduate Performance Diploma in Baroque violin at Peabody.

About Stephanie
I am a professional violinist and violist, performing regularly in the Baltimore-DC area and elsewhere. I received my Bachelor of Music from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, my Master of Music from the Peabody Institute, and am currently pursuing a Graduate Performance Diploma from Peabody.

I have been teaching professionally for more than five years, working with violinists and violists of all ages and experience levels. My goal is to cater to the specific needs of each individual student, and to work together to overcome any individual challenges each student may face.

I have studied various pedagogical techniques to develop my own style of teaching. My teaching style is heavily influenced by that of Karen Tuttle, who advocated for a physically free and natural method of playing. I also like to incorporate tenants of
music theory, ear training, and history into lessons in order to provide a more complete and balanced musical education.

Having studied various styles and eras of string performance, I am happy to explore repertoire from various styles, genres and time periods. I enjoy working with students on the type of music that they love and feel passionate about pursuing, whether that be standard classical repertoire, Irish fiddle tunes, or something else entirely.

In addition to violin and viola lessons, I also offer lessons in baroque violin and baroque viola. I specialize in historical performance and am happy to either focus exclusively on early music or even supplement modern training with information regarding historical practices if the student is interested.

If you're not sure about a particular style of music that you might be interested in, or for beginners and/or young musicians, that is no problem at all. I look forward to exploring different music with you and finding the music that you love to listen to and play.
