Warren, RI

My lessons are inspired by the Suzuki pedagogy, which emphasizes foundational skills (and an excellent music repertoire!) for both young and old players, but I am well-versed in many styles beyond classical music.

Whether you want to learn classical music, Irish fiddle, or techniques for pop and modern music, I can assist you in achieving a confident understanding of violin fundamentals through performance and music theory.

About Catherine
I started taking piano lessons at age 4 and violin at age 8. Classically trained on the Suzuki method, I have years of experience with solo performance, orchestral work, small ensembles, and professional gigs. I began teaching private lessons on violin in 2009, and my students have ranged from 4 to 68 years old.

My credits include numerous leadership positions as concertmaster, assistant concertmaster, and principal second violin in school and community orchestras, including Maitland Middle School, Winter Park High School, Florida Young Artist's Orchestra, UCF Symphony Orchestra, and the Great Woods Chamber Orchestra. I was invited to perform at the Midwest Conference and Carnegie Hall in 2006 and 2007.

Playing a piece of music is like trying to convey a message, if your mouth does not make the right shape or your timing is off, if your words are correct but the cadence is wrong, the message you are trying to convey can become «lost in translation». My job as a teacher is to help you articulate yourself to the fullest through music. I hope to make the violin a fun vehicle for your thoughts instead of an obstacle, and the music you play, increasingly clear!

About Peder
Peder Barratt-Due’s musical interests started at the age of 5 when he got his first violin lesson at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo, Norway. A few highlights of his performance career includes; solo violinist for H.W Henze’s Pollicino at the National Opera and Ballet of Norway, National and International tours with Oslo Camerata, 1st Prize and Musician of the Year from the Norwegian National Competition for Young Musicians and the Scholarship Assignment Award for his contribution as Concert Master for the Conducting Orchestra at Berklee College of Music.

I love music and it is my greatest joy to share that love of music with others! I believe as a teacher, my most important job is to build confidence in my students. Confidence not only in their technique, but also in their creative potential. I try to accomplish this goal by including improvisation, composition, arranging, music theory, music history, and much more in my lessons. Want to figure out how to play a top 40 piece while learning Mozart? I've got you! I want my students to leave every lesson feeling like they can accomplish anything, nothing is too hard or not for them.

About Jordan
I am a classically trained violinist with a Bachelor of Music Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University. I am a professional violinist, vocalist, and arranger.

I perform in a variety of styles including Jazz, Hip-hop, and pop. I tour with Thee Phantom and The Ill-Harmonic Orchestra and have arranged pieces for this group that have been performed at the Tobin Performing Arts Center in San Antonio Texas and the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. I perform locally as a violinist and vocalist as well, and I have managed several local bands.

As a teacher, I want my students to build confidence and have a fantastic time while working hard and making great strides. I work with every student to work with their individual goals and availability so that they can see success and growth in their technique and musicianship. I have a heavy emphas
is on technique and my students can expect to receive regular exercises to expand their technical proficiency. Additionally, I believe it is very important for every student to love what they are playing so I work with students on picking pieces, arranging music, and even composing their own works, so that they have a full experience.

I believe that great technique fosters confidence and excitement. Even though I am very interested and excited in having a wide variety of musical genres explored, I believe that creating a strong foundation is the key to success.
