My passion for the violin is undeniable but changing lives with this beautiful instrument and bringing the best out of YOU is what I thrive for! I create a fun and exciting atmosphere along with my 16+ years of experience to turn anyone into a passionate violinist.

I have had major events happen in my life which inspired me to become a mental health advocate/musician, which music is therapeutic and have been devoted to being someone who’s caring, diverse, determined and understanding. I make learning an instrument very exciting, enjoyable for all ages, whether you’re just getting started or already have experience (Beginners/Intermediate). It’s an unforgettable journey that you could always rely on to be exciting and efficient!

In 2003 I started playing the violin and became concert master (first chair) in my orchestra from Aug. 2003 - May 2012. During that time period, I performed in an honors orchestra from 2005 - 2007. After graduating high school in May 2012, I continued my passion with the violin by producing music with different music artists and providing structured private violin lessons.

I teach a wide variety of music, from classical to hip-hop to Lindsey Stirling’s new hits! (Huge fan) I can help you enhance your skills and master that one song you’ve always dreamed to play! I also focus on other factors, for example: knowledge of the instrument, scales, shifting(intermediate), how to read notes, dynamics, and the 2 “T’s”- Tune&Tone, etc.

My 16+ years of experience as a violinist and maintaining my position as concert master every year gives me the confidence to help you in your greatest decision to become a magnificent violinist!

About Jaclyn P.

Hello there! My name is Jaclyn, and I’m an exciting and passionate violinist with over 16+ years of experience owning my position as Concert Master/first chair. In 2012, I began providing private tutoring and before you knew it, my first student became concert master within the first few lessons (also being the youngest grade amongst them all!) Another previous student of mine, started as a beginner and within no time, with dedication and practice, she was accurately reading music notes! These are the moments I live and strive for. Patience and understanding is what my students deserves, as well as specialized work ethics that best suit each individual. I can not wait to start you on your path to success and to accomplish your dream come true!

I’ve created very successful techniques that are educational AND exciting, allowing my students to understand, step by step, in becoming a successful musician with encouragement, rewards and confidence along with small weekly goals to reach, ensuring that you are progressing everyday. I will gladly provide the structure and skills that will help you become the violinist you’ve always wanted to become. My goal is to see YOU succeed and to witness the growth in our exciting, new journey!

With a diverse and open mind, I can well match your personality and give you that reassurance of someone who listens and understands you and will teach accordingly- whichever direction is suitable and most successful for you. Going to my full extent to pursue your goal to master violin is the target I focus on.

Playing the violin since 2003 and holding my position as Concert Master, I’m confident to say that I’m highly experienced, diverse, knowledgeable, and suitable for all ages beginner - intermediate as well as all backgrounds.

Hands Down the best violin teacher in the Sacramento area! From the flexibility she has with time to the amazing way she teaches. I am a beginner who couldn’t even read music. I told her that was what I was most concerned about. I was able to learn not only to read music but also the background to the music I was learning. To me that was key to learning. Will definitely recommend to anyone that wants to learn the violin!!

The first time I picked up a violin I was so clueless about what I was doing and why! Shortly after one lesson with JACLYN PAZ I was constantly playing and practicing with no struggle. She was very patient with me considering I am a lefty and everything is backwards to me. She helped me learn new techniques on how to hold my instrument and started a new passion for my love of creating my own music! I would definitely recommend her to teach anybody violin! If I can do it, you can do it! Thank You So Much Again JACLYN!

Jaclyn is such a talented violinist. She has a natural gift to play the violin and anyone would be lucky to have her share her gift with them. She’s patient, outgoing and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure others can experience the violin the way she has.

First, It’s very hard to impress me but the moment I heard Jaclyn play I was awestruck (goosebumps!). Her abilities are endless. As a teacher she is kind, patient, guiding, and was a fantastic mentor for our daughter during violin lessons. I highly recommend to those whose children are interested in lessons.

Jaclyn is a natural when it comes to teaching, and interacting with children. She had so much patience, and confidence when tutoring my child. I thought it would be hard for my child to learn how to play the Violin, just because it's one of the more difficult instruments, but shes playing as if shes been taking lessons for months! ( its only been a few weeks). I definitely recommend this service. Thank you Jaclyn!

It’s always been my dream to learn the violin, but was hesitant because of my age, knowledge and experience level(none), but Jaclyn has made that dream come true for me! I’ve very much enjoyed your enthusiasm and advanced skills with a such a wonderful instrument. Thank you for this amazing experience!
