My name is Jocelyn and I have been playing the violin and viola for 13 years and teaching for 5 years. 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 Orchestra and National Philharmonic.
My students improve significantly since our first lessons. 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. Another student, who I started teaching when they were six years old, is now a year later on Suzuki book 2, Wohlfahrt Etudes and is learning third position as a seven year old.
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.

Jocelyn is punctual and courteous. She was flexible and responsive via email. She is a great fit for an outgoing child.

Jocelyn was very professional and patient with my daughter who is just a beginner. We are excited to see progress from week to week!

Jocelyn came to our home and worked with our son. She was very patient and kind with him and was able to find what to correct on the first lesson! She recommended some books for us to buy and I think that she will be a great teach for him.

Jocelyn came to our home and made my daughter very comfortable with her first private viola lesson. She was friendly and patient. 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!"

My daughter really enjoyed violin lessons with Jocelyn. She is very bright, punctual and has attention to detail. She seems exceptionally good at teaching young children.


Lesson Details

Violin

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I am an experienced classical violin teacher who has been teaching for 5 years from ages 5-16, beginner to advanced! I focus heavily on technique and foundations so the student has a well rounded music education and confidence in the violin that they can take with them forever. For beginners I use the Suzuki books, I Can Read Music series, String Builder series and Winning Rhythms. For more advanced violinists I use the Introduction to the Positions series and etude books such as Wohlfahrt and Kreuzer.
