I love playing and teaching the violin, and I'm so excited to share my experience with you! I have over a decade of experience with students of all backgrounds and experience levels. My time at The Juilliard School has prepared me well for whatever challenge you would like to take on together. Whether that is growing your love of the instrument, learning a new piece, finding better practice skills, or audition preparation. Congratulations on taking an amazing first step into learning the violin, and I look forward to meeting you in our first lesson.
About Jocelyn Z.

I have been teaching privately for over a decade, utilizing a blend of methods designed to help students discover violin technique and music theory, as well as develop skills in hypothesis and deduction that will help them become independent musicians and artists. My students have gone on to The Juilliard School Pre-College Division, and have won competitions throughout the tri-state area. In addition to my private studio, I have taught extensively through my nonprofit, Concerts for Compassion. In partnership with the United Nations and Red Cross, I've taught violin to refugee children in over 30 countries throughout Europe and Central America. I'm also a teaching artist at the 92Y, and a guest lecturer and educator at The Juilliard School’s Chamber Music and Community Service Course. My studio comprises of students from diverse backgrounds, ages, musical levels, and performance experience. In addition to individual lessons, you will have the opportunity to take part in my studio classes and recitals. It's a wonderful chance to meet other students and foster your musical community to support your work. I look forward to hearing from you!

Jocelyn has been an absolute inspiration to me during our lessons. I was a bit nervous trying digital lessons with a new teacher, but she was an INCREDIBLE help to me as a violinist. Definitely book a few lessons with her.

ADHD: Everyday Strategies for Elementary Students
Feb 2021
University of Buffalo
Overview of ADHD diagnosis and treatment. Course participants can expect to learn about ADHD as a developmental disorder that begins early in childhood, and participants will also learn about evidence-based approaches for diagnosing ADHD. Following that, two evidence-based treatment approaches (the Daily Report Card and Parenting Strategies) will be introduced. (Note these course activities are informational and are not intended to replace working with a licensed/trained professional). Learning Objectives: Students will be able to identify the behaviors characteristic of ADHD, the components of a diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment procedures that can be used in the school or home. 1. Identify the key areas of functional impairment, symptom presentation, and diagnostic decision-making for youth with ADHD. 2. Develop a behavioral intervention suitable for treating ADHD in the school setting. 3. Apply effective parenting and teaching strategies for supporting youth with ADHD in the home, classroom, and neighborhood.
