About Jerry
I've been playing and loving music for well more than half a century, now. I got started in second grade when my grandpa brought home a little violin one day, and I've been at it ever since. I was fortunate to take lessons for more than ten years with Carita Page, a teacher who was very warm, encouraging, and caring. I do my best to pass that on to my students in addition to the technique of playing and the theory of music, fascinating as those are.

I feel that playing in groups is very valuable experience for students and gives you a side of music that private lessons alone cannot. I encourage students to look for opportunities to do that. To help provide those opportunities I organized the Cranbury Scout Band, one of very few continuously-operating Scout bands in the country, which I have directed for more that ten years now.
I've also been on the staff of several Jamboree Scout bands.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is a different individual and learns in different ways. I try to make lessons as interesting and as useful to each student as I can, and include different things based on your interests and capabilities. Most students find duets are fun, so I include them often - both duets with the same instrument you are studying and duets with other instruments as well so you can learn the sound of such combinations. I encourage you to "play with your ears" as well as your fingers, to become a critical listener to your own performance and to decide whether you sound the way you want to sound.

I encourage students to try different things to become a more rounded musician. This might be something closely related - a flutist trying the piccolo or a clarinetist trying the bass clarinet. Or, it might be further afield - a flutist trying the guitar or a violinist learning movable Do and solfeggio singing. Every aspect of music is good to know.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My music studio is in a separate building - actually a renovated barn about two centuries old. The studio contains a piano and all the other instruments that I teach, and is roomy enough not only for private lessons but for musical groups up to about ten. I have many other resources there as well, including files of music, a small music library, and a computer that we can use for many purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need their instruments, music, and stands.
I bring my own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Classical,
Marching Band,
Ethnic (such as Jewish, Irish)

Through the lessons I help students on understanding the fundamentals of music theory, creating an ideal sound, musical expression and coordination.
Every student is different. I work with students individually and use different approaches for each one of them. Such as methods, repertoire and lesson skills.
But most important of all, I always make sure that my student does not loose interest and have fun making music!

About Yeseul
Graduate of Violin Performance Master degree at
Yale University and String Pedagogy Master degree at Temple University, I love both teaching and playing.
I'm one of the faculties at Symphony in C Youth Orchestra and St. Malachy School where I work with many different ages and levels of students.
I also teach at Petite Ecole Bilingue Institute working with kids as young as 3 year olds to Kindergarten specializing in early childhood education through music and violin.
I've had my private studio for nearly 10 years from young children to adults.
I'm also an active orchestral player where I'm a member of the Virginia Symphony, Allentown Symphony, Symphony in C and New Jersey Capital Philharmonic.
I believe it's very important for the teacher to have both experience in performing and teaching in order to fully understand and help the
students.
Through the lessons I help students on understanding the fundamentals of music theory, creating an ideal sound, and musical expression and coordination.
Whether they're trying to just have fun with music, improve their basic skills or prepare auditions such as School or District Orchestra, Youth Orchestra (PYO PYAO or many other local groups), I try to find the best for each students.

I’m an adult viola student which is kind of different for me. I started playing again after a couple years and I’m trying to learn ways to play with other musicians. Emily has been really good with helping me focus on what I want to learn. She is patient with me and also plays with me and makes me feel comfortable in my lesson. afterwards I feel good and positive and I want to play more! I suggest her for anyone trying to be creative and wants to improve on tempo, rythm, tone etc. she’s good.

I began playing the violin at the age of 5 and have participated in the Strings International Music Festival as well as the Eastern U.S. Music Camp. Through high school I was a member of the Delaware County Youth Orchestra and took part in district and regional festivals. At Temple University I studied with Helen Kwalwasser and played in the Temple Symphony Orchestra. I have also recorded non-classically on albums with music groups such as Port Arthur, Chet Williams, and Benjamin Poole.

Outstanding instructor, professionally gifted, helpful, patient and personable. I was fortunate to have found Elisabeth to teach my 9 year old son how to play the violin. Her teaching style was a perfect match for him and she was able to keep him motivated to play and improve and also achieve his goal of making the junior orchestra for his school.

Strings have always been a great love of mine--violin takes dedication of posture to be comfortable, and a comfortable sound is a beautiful one. It is important that you select a teacher who can really push you towards a beautiful tone and musical expression, as well as one who knows what they are doing regarding the fine details of technique.

About Ari
My name is Ari Fiekowsky, I'm 22 years old.

Currently I'm studying at Kean University, for a degree in Music Education K-12 with Teacher Certification.

I am a 3.8 GPA student who has been studying cello since I was 8 and piano since I was 3, and the other strings instruments since I was 15. I have always been good at all subjects, but have had a love for music. Music can benefit the brain in incredible ways, especially for children! Please ask me about these benefits and I can give you supportive academic research.

I have a permissive teaching style that is sensitive to developmental disability and mental illness, but also can be quite harrowing and strict if you have the desire to truly become a great musician. I practice all my instruments daily--I expect my students to do the same. :)

My specialties are strings, music the
ory, and piano. I'm very energetic and expect genuine effort from all my students. I try to make things fun, so I hope you try too!

I am currently a student at Bryn Mawr College. I teach violin and viola lessons. I have played the violin and viola for 12 years and over the course of my 4 years of teaching, I have taught over 15 students on both violin and viola. I usually work with children or teenagers and I can teach someone who has never played an instrument before as well as intermediate players. I use a variety of books that teach theory, rhythm and playing songs so the student gains confidence in preparing and performing "performance ready" pieces.
At college, I am principal viola of the Bryn Mawr-Haverford Orchestra and I also am part of a chamber music group. In high school, I was in the Maryland All-State Orchestra for four years and was in the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra (MCYO), one of the most prestigious orchestras in Maryland, for four years. During my summers, I attended the Interlochen Center for the Arts high school music program. I have been taught by musicians from the National Symphony ...

My students improve significantly since when I first meet them. One of my first students whom I now give Skype lessons to successfully got into one of the best orchestras in the DC area and is now principal (1st chair) of
the viola section of that orchestra. I use a comprehensive set of books that teach theory, rhythm and pieces that I use to teach students how to prepare and perform "performance ready" pieces.

She quickly spotted technical issues with my daughter's playing and suggested appropriate materials for her to practice. We've only had one lesson so far, but I think this is going to be a good "match!"

I am an "out-of-the-box" learner which makes me a teacher who can teach anyone...any level...any style...any age...and I do it with a joy for music. To me, the most important factor for success is PLAYING, not studying. From the first lesson, my students will play beautiful music to inspire their love of the instrument and to create an enthusiasm for learning to play. The best way to learn to play the violin is to play. Sure, scales and studies are important as is technique, but the majority of new violin students will lose interest if they aren't loving the music they make. I have taught Suzuki to 5 year olds...I have taught senior citizens who always wanted to play...and I have taught folks who played in high school but haven't played since then. I also specialize in teaching people with special educational needs and physical challenges. I want everyone to experience the joy that I do when I play.
