Hello! I'm Jaesi, a violin teacher located in Salt Lake City, Utah. I tutor violin and music to all ages. Violin classes are fun and affordable for both kids and adults. I tailor my private music lessons to each individual's desires and curiosities. My instructions can involve fiddling, traditional, classical, music theory, gypsy, and even jazz techniques. Suzuki method is my base. I also do group lessons to connect my students with a local music community. I play with other string musicians and instrumental teachers in the state of Utah and am always involved with putting together fun concerts and festivities that I invite my students to. Utah county is a superior area to have an acoustic instrument in hand and music is a lovely language to learn. I've been playing violin since the age
I love the violin! I have taught for a total of about 5 years. I was raised learning the Suzuki method, so much of my teaching is drawn from that; however, at this time I am not a certified Suzuki teacher. I have been playing the violin since I was four years old and took private lessons for about 17 years. I have been in numerous orchestras throughout high school and college and was in the Georgia Philharmonic (a community orchestra) this past year. I strongly believe that music is an important part of academic and overall development. I love helping students succeed in their goals and enjoy their experience with the violin!
*** Specialties *** Hi! My name is Charisse and I'm excited to meet you! I've been playing the violin since I was 4, and I love it. As a child, I was taught with the Suzuki method; however, I am not a certified Suzuki teacher. I received a bachelor's degree in music from Brigham Young University in 2011 and a master's degree in Linguistics from the same university in 2014. I was recently a member of the Georgia Philharmonic, a community orchestra. I have taught violin lessons for a total of about 5 years. I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals!
I believe in the individual's music experience! I believe in teaching strong technique, no matter what style of music is played. As technique is developed, I enjoy helping my students embrace their individual music interests, be it hip hop, jazz, classical, fiddling, tango, or creating their own styles and compositions!
At the age of 3, I began playing the violin and was taught through the Suzuki Method. Before ever learning to read a note, I learned to play by ear- learning to listen and imitate, much as a child learns to imitate sounds and speak before learning the letters of the alphabet. This ear training, in combination with note reading and other techniques, created the groundwork for the rest of my life as a musician! The moment that would change my life as a musician came at age 12 while performing with Disney's Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra in Chicago. We had the opportunity to perform with violinist Vanessa Mae. I had never seen someone that could inspire so much electric energy and, at the same time, put such tender, heartfelt emotion into every note. A new fire and zeal for music

B Mus from U of U 1975. M Mus Ed from Boston U 2008. Retired Orchestra Director and teacher (grades 5 - 12) Tooele HS & Jr HS + elementary program. Former Utah State Fiddle Champion. Past affiliation with Utah Oldtime Fiddlers. I still love helping students reach their musical potential even though I am now retired from the classroom. I offer a personalized approach, and I am able to tailor materials to best serve an individual student's needs. I am experienced at starting beginners, and also adept with intermediate students. For special needs students I would need someone familiar with the student's needs to attend lessons with the student.
I use a mix of the Suzuki Method as well as repertoire and technique that I learned as a student at BYU.
I love teaching and I love performing. I graduated from Brigham Young University in Violin Performance in 2012. Since graduation I've recorded and performed with various rock and folk music groups. My goal as a teacher is to help nurture a love and appreciation for the violin and foster creativity and dedication. I started violin at 5 years old after begging my parents for over a year to take lessons. I started with the Suzuki method and then moved on to more traditional teachers until I started prepping for college auditions and took lessons from a BYU professor. While at BYU I performed with the Philharmonic Orchestra and various chamber groups. I love to write and improv so I perform and record with anywhere from pop, progressive rock, to folk groups.
