I have been teaching classical violin for over 6 years, and have found the Suzuki method to be quite reliable. This method uses listening/ear training, repetition, and encouragement to help students develop technique while cultivating an extensive repertoire of music. I supplement my Suzuki lessons with basic theory, note reading, and an emphasis on practice techniques and artistry, and encourage experienced students to explore classical and traditional repertoire outside of the Suzuki method.

About Miriam-Rose L.

Hello! My name is Miriam-Rose, and I have been teaching violin/fiddle to students of all levels and ages for over ten years. I was trained classically in the Suzuki method from a very young age, and also have a significant background in traditional music, specifically Scottish fiddle. During my time at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, I created my own degree with a focus on Scottish music, and also became the third place winner of the 2012 National Scottish Fiddle Championship.

Additionally, I have been on faculty at the Joffrey Academy of Dance since 2015, and have over 10 years of experience teaching ballet to students of all ages. I currently dance with Chicago Repertory Ballet.

More on my teaching philosophy:

As a teacher, my aim is not only to train my students to be the very best dancers or musicians they can be, but also to equip them with the skills and values necessary to become the best possible versions of themselves. I love the arts of both ballet and violin for many reasons; one of which is that in order to do them well, one must develop perseverance, discipline, passion, humility, creativity, and patience, among other qualities. These qualities are valuable not only in the arts, but in any person’s life, and I aspire to enhance and shape the lives of my students.

Thanks, and I look forward to working with you!

She's very knowledgeable. She used the time to really analyze and work with my daughters ability. Afterwards she gave great advice, the pros and cons on what she needs to work on.

Very good at explaining concepts in a second, or sometimes third, way so that her student can make an inner connection. I also admire the way she organizes her lessons so we refresh and enhance the previous session and then move on to new technique. Appreciate the professional way she communicates as necessary outside class, too.

Miriam arrived right on time, prepared and ready to go. She worked with the space I had, and was very patient. As an adult beginner, learning something new can be intimidating, but she made the lesson very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to next week!

Our family cannot speak highly enough of Miriam-Rose and her talent and teaching ability. She is still, by far, our 10-year-old daughter's favorite IU student violin teacher. Miriam-Rose has such a gift for being an incredibly patient and supportive teacher, yet she is firm and affective in her corrections. Our daughter learned so much in just the short time she was instructed by her. She is such a caring, friendly and fun person with lots of energy, and you can tell she loves what she does by the way she teaches. She will be a blessing to any student she instructs. We have two other daughters that also know her from the ballet world and she is known there as well for her talent, teaching and friendliness, which I think speaks volumes for the individual that she is. She is just an all-around wonderful and talented person who also happens to be a very gifted teacher. Students of any age will learn so much from her! We so appreciate what she has done for our family!!

Miriam-Rose is a talented violinist with a wonderful personality! Very professional, yet caring and friendly, she is great for students of any age. I've had the pleasure of working with her for several years now, and her dedication to excellence and passion for music combine to make her an excellent choice for anyone looking to further their studies on the violin.

We were lucky to have Miriam-Rose teach our 9 year old over a few summers, while she was home from college. Miriam-Rose was a wonderful teacher for our daughter. Patient and very supportive of our daughter's needs, Miriam-Rose really guided her lesson and practice to help her improve.

Miriam-Rose is one of the best teachers I know. I am also an experienced teacher and have studied violin pedagogy with professors at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore and at the Jacobs' School of Music at Indiana University, and I can highly recommend Miriam-Rose as someone who's teaching methods and approach are on par with the standards of these prestigious institutions. Her experience with kids and her Scottish Fiddling make learning with her lots of fun. Great instructor, you can't go wrong!
