Jaesi C.

West Jordan, UT

About Jaesi

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 concer
ts 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 of 6. I performed in BYU Symphony as well as Dixie State College's Orchestra and in a school orchestra and a music group in Munich, Germany. I studied under one of the top violin instructors in the state of Utah, Dr. Percy Kalt. I have over 20 awards from various competitions, camps, and festivals through the years. I currently tutor and teach violin and music theory in SLC, UT as well as perform with the ethnic, world band, Benjamin Dara.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor each lesson to the student. If the student wants to focus on a certain style or song, then I will provide the necessary exercises and techniques. I'm very open to any style and music. I can transpose any music and will use a bit of Suzuki method's books. I have many other books and the student may choose upon interest.

*** Studio Equipment ***
2 full size violins, 1 half size, 2 microphones, and Finale music program.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a violin for the first free lesson. I expect students to rent or own a violin. I will provide music.

*** Specialties ***
classical, suzuki, gypsy, jazz, fiddle

Amazing violin teacher

Jaesi is an amazing suzuki teacher and wonderful with young kids. She makes the lessons fun and gets very creative with how she teaches things. She's reliable, organized, incredibly sweet, and full of passion for music. She makes me feel comfortable to be myself so I can really enjoy what I am playing.

So creative and fun!

Jaesi is a sweet and a little shy, but there is a lot of creativity hidden under her shy giggles. She will go in any direction you want. I had a song in my head during the lesson and she ended up teaching me how to play it! She makes it feel much more like teamwork and is a partner to play and learn from. She is such an awesome teacher!

Charisse M.

Pleasant Grove, UT

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!

About Charisse

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!

Nicolle A.

Sandy, UT

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!

About Nicolle

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 wit
h 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 was born in me that I can never forget!

That passion for music has driven me to reach for every performance and training opportunity possible and to help others do the same. In completing my bachelor's degree in Viola Performance at the Jacob's School of Music at Indiana University, I brushed shoulders with mentors who not only shaped me as a performing musician but also as a teacher. Participating in the Suzuki Pedagogy program provided the ultimate hands-on opportunity to teach, alongside other professionals, and mold beginning violinists in their first steps.

I have been teaching privately for the past 10 years, helping beginning through advanced students ranging in age from 4 to 52. It's been unbelievably rewarding watching each student's life change with music. My young beginners love the creative outlet that playing the violin and viola provides. The discipline they develop in learning to play crosses musical boundaries and can be seen in their schoolwork and other daily routines. My adult students love the opportunity to begin the musical journey they had only dreamed of in the past; or, the chance to "dust off" their instruments that they put by the wayside as a child. Equally rewarding is teaching those students with fundamentals already in place to stretch and turn their technique into expressive, musical lines!

I love the opportunity to get to know the unique personalities and styles of EACH of my students and to help them put this qualities into their playing! Let me help you discover the musician waiting to come out in you!...

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach 30 minute, 45 minute, and 1 hour lessons. (For students younger than 8 years of age, 30 minute or 45 minute lessons are recommended.) Each of my lessons is taught one-on-one in my in-home studio.

I teach a combination of the Suzuki Method and traditional styles. The Suzuki Method creates a strong technical foundation to build upon while also training the ear to work independently of note reading. I combine this method with a more traditional approach as I feel it important for the student's involvement and enjoyment to play recognizable tunes.

What to expect in a lesson:

Beginners:
- Learning to correctly hold the violin/viola and bow with proper position
- Learning the names of notes and placement of fingers
- Note and rhythm training/reading; key and time signature training
- Ear training
- Beginning level Suzuki and traditional pieces

Intermediate:
- Ensuring that proper positioning and posture is upheld
- Scale and rhythm training; key and time signature training
- Ear training
- Intermediate level Suzuki and traditional pieces
- Learning shifting exercises and vibrato

Advanced:
- Scale and rhythm training exercises/etudes
- Ear training
- Advanced level Suzuki pieces and/or traditional and other classical pieces

For the first lesson:

Beginners: Please bring your violin (appropriate for your size), bow, shoulder rest, Suzuki Volume 1 with CD, notepad, and folder.

Intermediate-Advanced: Please bring your violin, bow, shoulder rest, notepad, folder, and your most recently performed/polished piece.

Parental involvement in younger students' lessons and at-home practicing is HIGHLY encouraged! (For those students 8 years of age or younger, parents are REQUIRED to be at every lesson!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Violin/Viola (for teacher use), music stand, metronome, recording device, laptop

Denise H.

South Jordan, UT

I use a mix of the Suzuki Method as well as repertoire and technique that I learned as a student at BYU.

About Denise

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 perfor
med 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.

When I teach of younger and beginning students I start with Suzuki, small études, scales, and solfedge. As students mature musically I add other repertoire and technique study.
