Lesson Details

Violin

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
My teaching is a combination of Suzuki Method, ABRSM pieces, and Traditional Method. I used fingering, bowing exercises or etudes for the pieces to make it easier to play.

I am very sincere and sensitive to my students because every student is unique and it is very important that you have to connect with them. I teach by heart and provide what they wanted to achieve in violin playing and so its worth and satisfying.

All of my students will learn how to play well with good intonation and proper posture. Students can choose to play their favorite pieces for fun, either Classical or Pop music . We can also enjoy some duet pieces.

Violin playing is fun but it involves patience, discipline, PRACTICE and determination. Lesson can be held in West Valley Music depending on the studio's room availability. Give me your availability and i will try to fit you in.

Jessica is a suburb musician. She can teach any level, from beginning through professional level. I was impressed with Jessica's playing immediately. Her playing is top-notch, from subtle intricacies through powerful passages. I would recommend Jessica for any student from beginner through professional level.

Very good. Got right down to business. I started the lesson not knowing how to use rosin and ended being able to play a song. Looking forward to improving.

I am a professional musician who works closely with Jessica. Jessica and I work together at our church in the youth choir/band and the adult choir (I am the director of both music groups). Outside of the church, the two of us also comprise a duo, playing classical music and modern classics together. I can speak to Jessica's professionalism and virtuosity, and I can also speak to her interaction with children.
Jessica is incredibly musical; she sight reads fluently, she has excellent intonation and a beautiful tone on her violin, her rhythm is flawless, and she has an instinctive and musical sense of dynamics, leading to beautiful interpretations and expression. She is a superb player in ensemble/chamber music. As a soloist, she commands the stage with a presence of beauty, technical expertise, and confidence.
Jessica works wonderfully with children. She is a kind and loving influence, giving helpful suggestions to the children to help them develop better musicianship. She has vision as a musician, and she conveys her ideas clearly to both children and adults.
