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!

Fantastic first teacher! I don't have anything to compare her to in terms of violin instruction, but she obviously knows the instrument well and was very helpful!

Jill is personble yet professional. She certainly has the expertise to assess quickly where I am and probably more importantly what I need to do to be better.

I immediately felt comfortable with Jill. She is so patient, kind, and supportive. As a first-time student of the violin, I feel incredibly lucky to have found such an invaluable resource as her. I will most definitely be signing on for future lessons with her.

I teach all levels of violin. For the lower levels, I use the repertoire from the Suzuki books, but I don't use the actual method. I teach with a more traditional approach. After the student improves in skill, I move them into the traditional scale and etude books along with repertoire that pertains to the level of playing. My number one requirement for my students is scales and etudes. This is the basis of how to play your instrument well. I try to instill good habits in my students and proper technique to present a clean and full sound. I have my students analyze what it is they are playing instead of just playing the notes. With that, I encourage them to LISTEN to the music they are playing. A musician needs to hear the many complexities and pull the emotion out to the listener and to themselves.

I have been teaching for over 15 years. I also performed solo recitals, chamber music concerts, and orchestras nationally and internationally for over 18 years. I have performed with Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Rockford Symphony, Civic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, China National Symphony Orchestra and more. I approach each student as a unique and promising artist. I help them set individual goals, then plan and prepare lesson materials tailored for what he or she intends to achieve. I encourage them to work hard, dream big, and enjoy the rewards of learning and performing music.

Lipeng is a great violin teacher. She is efficient and get to the point. She also has very good ears. She is able to catch out of tune notes for my son. She helped my son for his recital pieces of music, and she was very helpful.

I have taught violin for 30 years. My students enjoy playing in groups and performing as soloists. Many of my violin students have attended music camps throughout the U.S I teach using a combination of Suzuki and my own select books and pieces. I offer three showcases per year that are filled with such FUN. The showcases are so fun that the usual response to them is : Can I play more than one song next time and I should have invited more friends to come. I am excited that YOU want music lessons

Cara is an absolutely amazing instructor! As an 'older' beginning student, I was treated with kindness and sincerity. Her patience with my ineptitude made me feel like a pro, rather than a beginner. She was able to listen to what I wished to accomplish and in a few short months, she delivered just that and more. Thank you, Cara!

Cara is very easy to be with. I felt relaxed and that she really was interested in giving me the experience I was looking for. In one lesson, she helped me learn things that will insure my interest in the piano for many years.
