Hello, I'm Mallory! I've been studying Violin for 11 years and, and have played piano for 12.
I have just graduated from the Chicago College of Performing Arts in May with a degree in Classical Violin Performance. I have additional experience in Jazz/contemporary music, Pop Music, and Improvisation.
I have about 5-6 years of piano training over the course of my life and have taken college level courses geared towards teaching piano to beginners and adults.
Over the years, I have taught private violin lessons and coached elementary and middle school chamber ensembles. I currently teach private lessons at two studios in Chicago, and teach after school group lessons at local elementary schools.
Overall, I absolutely love what I do--playing music and teaching--and I especially look forward to working with you!

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.+ Read More

This Lesson Was Awesome. She Really Explains Everything Well.

Great lessons! Good with a 12 yrs old, accommodating, understanding, patient, punctual. Thank you!
She is really nice and has very good knowledge about technicality. I am really enjoying learning from her.
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.
My son loves his first violin lesson. Mallory is very knowledge and patient with my kid. He can't wait to practice again tomorrow.
Friendly, kind and encouraging. My daughter really enjoyed her lesson and is looking forward to the next one.
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!+ Read More
