Lesson Details

Violin

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Students can expect fun and thorough lessons. I set high standards for myself and expect the same from my students- beginning with technique and working through reading. Students brand new to violin begin learning by ear, ensuring a strong musical foundation. Depending on the age and stage of the student, reading will be introduced separate from playing violin. When students have reached an adequate level of playing, I will introduce reading while playing.

Sierra Reiten, of Key of Si Music, often jokes about having actually begun her musical endeavors while still in utero! Born into a family of musicians and daughter of a loving violin teacher, Mrs. Reiten began learning to play violin as soon as she could say “violin!” Mrs. Reiten is a teacher and freelance musician. Playing experiences include the Oregon Cabaret Theatre, Portland Community Music Center, Oregon Shakespeare Festival Daedalus Project, Southern Oregon University Theatre, Camalot Theatre and various freelance performances.

Mrs. Reiten has dedicated her entire life studying the violin emphasized through the Suzuki Method. She has ten years experience teaching private violin and seven years teaching group classes and ensembles featuring violin, viola and cello.

At Key of Si Music, she teaches violin, viola and preschool Kindermusik classes. She is currently the orchestra director at Madrone Trail Public Charter School. Mrs. Reiten has served as a violin consultant to the South Medford High School orchestras and has taught at a variety of fiddle camps. Mrs. Reiten prepares her students for performances of all kinds, ensembles to orchestras, auditions to solos.

A graduate of Oregon State University, Mrs. Reiten receives on-going training with Suzuki Specialist Kendra Law and has had extensive training with industry leaders such as Faina Podolnaya, Sherry Kloss, and Shelly Rich.
