Lesson Details

Violin

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been playing violin for 12 years. I started learning classical, then branched out to playing movie scores, then to modern songs. I think playing the violin, or any instrument, should be a fun experience and the student needs to drive what genre they want to perform. If you play something you enjoy, you're more likely to stay with it.

I just finished a year long with playing with a local indie-electronic band where we played the Houston Whatever Fest, Superbowl Live, Lucky's pub block party for St. Patrick's day and more so if you're more of an electric violin person, I can also teach that.

We will start with fundamentals and get you to understand how to read music, along with basic first position fingering, then branch out in to the genre you're interested in. I have been teaching violin for 4 years and have loved every second of it, getting to see something click for a student is a great joy to me, so I really try to set up each of my students up for success. Genres frequently taught are classical, pop, country, and celtic.

Hello! My name is Jillian, I have been playing violin for 12 years, about to be 13 here shortly. I am a fun, energetic person who loves watching others succeed. My teaching style really depends on the student, I started teaching back in 2011, and had students from 3 to 50 that obviously needed different methods for learning. I modify every lesson plan specifically to the student, taking in to consideration what genre they like, and where they want to be with proficiency.

I love all genres of music, I started with classical, then branched to rock and popular songs with songs like Carry on my Wayward Son, Stairway to Heaven, Viva La Vida and then to movie scores such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, etc. I am a huge fan of music, and the healing and stress relieving powers it has.

Every student can succeed, it's up to the teacher to put them in a position that they can and will prevail. Music should be fun for everyone!
