About Jacqueline

Hi, it's nice to meet you! My name is Jacqueline and I have been playing the viola and violin since I was nine years old. A string quartet came to our school one day, I heard the sound said, "That is what I want to do" and haven't stopped since! I went to music school as a scholarship student. F

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

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.

About Dongbin

I am a concert soloist, and have given concerts home and abroad. I have previously served as the concertmaster at the Hartt Symphony Orchestra and the Waterbury Chorale. I am also an avid chamber musician with chamber music experience from age of 15 as a member of the Shin Trio. I was appointed as

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

We were hesitant to try online lessons but so happy we did! Keiko is a virtuoso with a gift in teaching. She has amazing ears and her corrections are to the point. She holds her students to a high standard and yet she is positive, encouraging, patient, and friendly. My daughter learned a lot from Keiko and was so inspired and motivated!
Edmund D.
Keiko is very patient and kind. She made several suggestions for me to modify my technique to improve my sound. Even though I had difficulty with it, she encouraged me to keep going at it. I am excited for our next lesson.

"At 60 plus I'm pretty set in my ways. But after 40 some years of not playing a violin I purchased a new one and found Nikita. He has worked with me trying to correct bad habits. Teaching proper handling, finger placement, notes, bow hold and care. Nikita works with children and the ELDERLY and everyone in between. His patience and passion for music is great. I highly recommend this person. He is not only a highly trained and gifted musician with many years of experience but also an excellent teacher. I value his skills and his friendship."

I look forward to my next lesson. I was a little intimidated by her vast experience , she reassured me and put my fears at ease. She also has experience teaching adults which is what I was looking for . I am 50 years old and have no experience playing violin ."

"An outstanding mentor

Being in my 30's, I didn't know what to expect. I assumed that most teachers would only teach children. Betsy has taught a range of students, from very young to quite a bit older and I've been so blessed to have her sent my way.

She's been patient and understanding of my random schedule (and of my terrible playing), professional, on time, encouraging, always shows up with a smile on her face and a thirst to teach. It's one thing to be excited to learn, but it's another to find such a wonderful person that enjoys teaching the way she does. I also appreciate the fact that she puts her own love for the instrument(s) into practice by constantly having performances in the field as well. It's hard to find this type of individual in any area of life and I'm so glad she's become my teacher."
