Jessie Y.

Saint Louis, MO

I have taught all ages and all skill levels. I specialize in Suzuki method and love helping students get started on an instrument!

About Jessie

I hold a Masters of Music in Violin Pedagogy from Boise State University. I have been playing the violin for eighteen years. I have performed in a variety of ensembles from 180-person full orchestra and chorus in Eisenstadt, Austria, to a string quartet in a Beatles tribute band. I have been teaching private lessons for about eight years, mostly to beginning and intermediate level students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach primarily from the Suzuki violin method with some additional resources to create a well-rounded knowledge of the violin. In addition to learning to play certain pieces o
n the violin students will develop various basic music skills and techniques, such as a theory and history of music. The main goal of my teaching, however, is to instill a love of music and the arts in each and every student I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is equipped with a piano, music stand, music theory and ear training games, as well as a vast library of method books and supplemental materials.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson plans and some technology. I expect students to have their own instruments and cleaning materials, as well as the appropriate music. Occasionally we will need access to a piano. If there is no piano at the student's home we will need to meet at a location to practice with one.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in the Suzuki violin method.

Very knowledgeable and patient. I am learning violin for the first time, and she takes the time to help with proper posture and positioning and technique.

Very patient and professional

Jessie is very patient, professional, flexible. I'm a college student and busy with school work, but I still learned a lot from her, not only in violin skills, but also music theory and so on. She also teaches me how to practice instead of just showing me the pieces.

Gives you confidence in your own abilities

Jessie taught my daughter from June 2011-Dec 2012. She has been an excellent teacher for my 4 year old. It is really a challenge to keep kids focused at this age and Jessie was always up for the challenge. She simplified things down to really basic tasks that the kids can do and more importantly enjoy the learning experience.

During the period our little girl developed the confidence to play in front of a large audience. She could compose her own variations and play it with authority.

Jessie was always on time and professional with her approach. She always brought prints for parents to follow through on the lessons. It made practices at home really simple for us. We could see progress in our daughter's abilities every week.

We felt sorry that we could not continue on with her because of us relocating to a different city and her move as well. I would greatly recommend her for your violin lessons.

About Leasa

Hi. I have been playing violin since the age of 10 -- that was forty-five years ago! I have played off and on for most of my adult life. My love for violin increased dramatically when I discovered fiddling. I am a fourth-generation fiddler. I have several college degrees and worked for many years as a computer programmer. I later received an elementary education degree, because my true love in life (after music) is teaching. Most of my teaching experience was in high school subjects (all of them!) in the juvenile justice system. I did teach music to kindergartners and had several older private
students through Kindercare.

For the kids: I am certified in the Mark O'Connor Method, which emphasizes music of the Americas and encourages creativity. Fun!

For adults and interested youth: I can help you with Improvisation --Backup – (chords and chops) -- Old-Time and Bluegrass Repertoire -- Old-Time and Bluegrass Bowing Techniques -- Chords and Double Stops -- and beginning basics.

Aaron H.

In these lessons you should expect to learn the basics of the violin. I can teach you how to hold the violin/bow, play notes, and read music. We would be using a hodgepodge of different techniques to accomplish this and to build basic good technique.
