About Mallory L.

***Please message me before purchasing a lesson package to ensure we are a good fit! Thank you :-)***

Hello, I'm Mallory! I have been playing Violin and Piano for 13 years.

In May 2017 I graduated from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, where I earned a bachelor's degree in Classical Violin Performance. During my time at Roosevelt I gained additional experience playing Jazz, Contemporary, pop, and Improvisational music (to name a few).
I have had a cumulative 6 years of formal piano training over the course of my life, through private instruction and college courses. Ask me more about music theory, jazz theory, improvisation, writing, arranging or anything else you might be interested in!

Over the past decade of my musical career I have taught private and group lessons on both violin and piano, and have coached elementary and middle school chamber ensembles. Currently, I spend my days:
-teaching private lessons at a studio in Chicago
-teaching before and after school group lessons at CPS
-teaching students of my own private studio--in their homes or online.
-performing at local venues and collaborating with artists near and far.
-traveling for tours, gigs, workshops, lessons, and other academic or artistic endeavors.
-freelancing as a session musician for studio recordings.

Overall, I absolutely love what I do--playing music, writing music, and teaching--and I especially look forward to working with you!

We have taken three online classes so far with Mallory. She is very responsive, flexible and most importantly my daughter likes her approach. My daughter was first hesitant about online class, but she made her feel comfortable.

This was our first lesson of this kind online. My daughter has taken lessons before and became bored and never wanted to practice. I see a whole new excitement in her! The lessons taught by Mallory were built perfectly for my daughters age level. I can tell that she has taken the time to make sure it's a good fit for the age of the person she is teaching. Everything from the words she used, the songs she taught her and the movements really kept her interested. I can't wait to see what is in store moving forward. I was worried she wouldn't get that one on one attention type of feel online, but it was just as if she was right there with her. She was also able to type the homework right on the screen for us. This was just so convenient. I love not having to leave the house on a school night.

Mallory is INCREDIBLE.
So fun and so patient.
Our daughter just finished her first lesson...and the first words out of her mouth were, "I can't WAIT for Mallory to come back!".

My daughter was excited about her first class with Mallory and she was not let down. Mallory uses lots of easy-to-remember tricks for Emily to learn her notes.

Mallory has been a great instructor for my 9 year old learning to play violin. She was willing to purchase materials out of her own pocket to keep my daughter's lessons cohesive with her previous instructor. So flexible with availability, and so kind, positive, and cheerful that it keeps the lessons fun for my little girl!
