I approach learning the violin in a multi faceted approach that allows students with unique learning styles and challenges to do what they love. I also apply years of teaching experience to meet a student where they are at, determining what their needs are and helping them bridge the gap for themselves so they can become their own best teacher.

About Elizabeth

I am experienced teacher who enjoys sharing my love of music with people of all ages! I studied Early Childhood Education in college, but have played the violin for 20+ years. Some highlights of my time playing violin include winning 3rd place at the Lyons Fiddle Festival when I was 15, playing with

I teach violin to adults and kids age six and older, and welcome adult beginners. I teach studio lessons for beginner and intermediate levels and online lessons for beginners only.

Studio/in person lessons: I teach studio lessons for beginner and intermediate levels. I offer an approach to classical violin studying the Strictly Strings and Suzuki Books, emphasizing reading music and music theory. I can also provide tutoring for student orchestra members and assistance with orchestra music.

Online lessons: I teach online lessons for beginners only. My online violin lessons use Strictly Strings Violin Book 1 and Suzuki Violin Book 1, and cover the basics of violin, including reading music and music theory.

I just completed my fifth lesson out of my 10 lesson package with Margaret. She is wonderful! Always exactly on time, provides clear instruction and is very encouraging and patient with beginners. I'm an adult who is just now learning to read music, and she makes it way less scary! Definitely recommend taking lessons with her.

I believe that learning to play music is not just to attain mastery or even to become a professional in the craft. Instead, playing music can be a journey in learning to express emotion, experience beauty, and cultivate virtue, diligence and character. And these things, once cultivated, can’t help but take root and grow – dancing in and out of the notes they play and spilling into all areas of their lives.

I believe that teaching is not just about instruction, but about mentorship. Not just transferring information, but building relationship. Together as parent and teacher we will partner to instill passion and joy for learning within your child.

About Joy

When I was a little girl… Music was the language of my home. I learned to sing before I could speak and understood sound and rhythm through the clanking keys of the piano. Violin quickly made its entrance and carried me through college, launching me into a career in music & education. I kep

I found Joy to be smart, reliable, positive, and she not only
learned the processes and procedures in my department, but also has improved upon them. Further, her
personality is kind, calm, and she was able to fit right into my close knit team of counselors seamlessly.
Sonya Martin
Joy is a fantastic teacher! She brings a lot of energy to the lesson and really engages with her students. She knows how to make each child feel special and proud of themselves.
Alana
Joy is a wonderful, hard-working teacher. She is very thoughtful of her students. She is always trying to find creative ways to teach. She is reliable and trustworthy. I saw my daughter grow and learn so much from Joy in the couple of years we had her teach. I highly recommend her.

Wonderful!

Samantha D. is wonderful. My kids play so well for only 1 year'sworth of lessons. I would highly recommend her to anyone! I am blownaway by the music that comes out of the Piano from a 7 and 11 year old.My 11 year old signed up for her first music competition at school. Ifyou told me one year ago I would have girls playing a piano, I would notbelieve you. I truly thought they would quit after a couple of months.Not the case. They are musically talented and still love it. Thanks toSamantha D! They are now thriving in the in-school music program.Thank you, TakeLessons, for filtering out the best teachers. When achild has a small window of interest, you have to grab it the rightway...the wrong teacher would not have given me these results.

My granddaughter, Katelynn, enjoys her trumpet lessons with Samantha. Samantha is caring, seems to enjoy teaching & has patience; which is needed since Katelynn needs a little extra attention learning things
MaureenC
Highly Recommend her!

My daughters (10, & 6) have only had three lessons with Samantha! They love it. Her nature is kind and welcoming. She can tell how much they can handle so doesn't overwhelm them with too much theory or pieces to play. She strikes a nice balance. My 10 year old started composing her own song when she became bord with the beginner book! Samantha has added to this excitement and changed her teaching style to match my daughters learning style. My daughter was beaming! Samantha has taught her how to take the next pieces of theory and add it to her song. She also ordered music my daughter enjoys like Selena Gomez. My 6 year old is excited every week and doesn't want to be late. My husband and I thought this would be just another thing to start and quit. So far they are going strong!

Thank for getting me back into playing Max!! After sometime off, I really didn’t think I would ever enjoy learning to play the violin again, but your clear instructions make me feel like I am working towards something that actually pays off! I’ve already seen a big improvement in my playing and am enjoying the learning process so much. Looking forward to learning Book 4!!

Jonathan is very patient and professional.
Michael
My high school daughter has received trumpet lessons from Jonathan for over a year. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. As a school teacher, he knows how to work with kids in a way that gives him an advantage over a non-teacher performing artist. We've done lessons both in person and online. I'd highly recommend Jonathan to any parent looking to have their middle school/high school student take private lessons.

Jonathan is very patient with my kid and made the first lesson fun.

"Wasn't able to progress by myself after trying to learn through Youtube, I decided to look for a teacher to guide me. I used to have a teacher when I was young and they were excellent performers, but not excellent teachers. Bill is both: He is fully invested in making lessons understandable and fun, without sacrificing rigor and technique."

"Tom McShane has exposed me to a lot of great folk music from a variety of cultures and time periods. He gets you into playing songs right away. This preserves the joy of making music and gives you a sense of accomplishment . I'd taken instrument lessons in the past where the instructor would get all bogged down in technique and I'd never get to play any music, which destroyed my natural joy and motivation. Now I'm regaining it back, so for that I am very grateful."

"SO happy with my first class - instead of treating me like a beginning 8 year old (I'm almost 30), he willingly focused on technique and accepted my word that I have read music before (I played piano for several years) instead of forcing me to read a treble clef to him. He also immediately addressed my most pressing concerns (such as bow hold) as I am trying to partially self teach in the interest of time and money using online lessons, etc. Focusing on technique instead of how to pizzicato a quarter note allows me to practice and his teaching style, telling me what mistakes I may be making and why I am making them as a beginner (too much pressure, too little, etc) really allows me to try and improve before the next lesson. I am INCREDIBLY happy with his flexibility and teaching style and will gladly continue taking lessons from him. Highly recommend, at least for the adult beginners like myself!"
