Jean is patient, fun, and imaginative. She also loves passing on the gift of music to anyone wanting to learn!

Jean's philosophy of teaching is; 1. Taking on any new task requires time and discipline. Mistakes are a part of the learning process. The biggest challenges reap the greatest rewards.

2. The student and teacher are a team! The teacher and student will work together to learn together. As the student is learning new skills and techniques, the teacher is learning all about the student and their specialized needs.

Jenae S.

Ashland, MA

About Jenae

I have had a regular studio of violin and piano students in the Boston area since 2006. I began teaching in 2001 in Seattle, WA. I perform regularly as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player at the Longy School of Music, in the Freisinger Chamber Orchestra, the Dorchester Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Civic Symphony Orchestra.

My primary focus in my teaching is to guide my students to becoming independent musicians, and to help them develop a thorough understanding of music. Lessons include learning about music theory, sight reading, performance skills and technique. I have
a thorough understanding of pedagogy and a true passion for teaching students of all ages.

Education:

I've received both my Master's of Music degree with Emphasis in String Pedagogy and Undergraduate Diploma in Violin Performance from the Longy School of Music, studying with professors Janet Packer and Mark Lakirovich, and have received my Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Emerson College.

Originally from Seattle, WA, I began studying the piano at the age of seven. Soon after, I began studying the violin, and performed regularly in recitals and competitions. I have won scholarships to attend the Longy School of Music for both programs and the Max Aronoff Viola Institute.

My hobbies include dancing Argentine tango and playing tango music, riding horses, sailing and yoga.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are fun and creative, and we'll work on something new and exciting each week. Students bring their lesson books and notebooks to each lesson, and practice goals are written clearly in their notebooks at each lesson. I use a series of different books depending on the age and level of the student, with a combination of classical, popular, and folk melodies. In my lessons, I often play my violin with my students to demonstrate certain points, or play along for support so they can match the sound. I also accompany violin students on the piano, providing a strong musical support and an opportunity to learn how to play with a different instrument.

Usually, after a just a couple of weeks, students are already playing pieces they are familiar with. I encourage my students to practice every day, because consistency is very important when learning an instrument. Students will also learn how prepare for performances and have the opportunity to play in recitals each year.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate Music studio adjacent to house w/ piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an excellent quality keyboard, if necessary. Students should have a keyboard or piano at home to practice on, or a violin if they are taking violin lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Popular

Jenae is a great teacher!

My son just started violin lessons with Jenae and after barely a month is making great progress and staying motivated, even though he's starting this endeavor at almost 11 years old. Jenae's approach is very encouraging and methodical. We have been very pleased with our choice.

Mia R.

Norfolk, MA

About Mia

I am a professional singer and actress with opera and musical theater credits. Singing is my passion! I love to sing, and I LOVE to teach others to sing! The human voice is the most natural instrument of all, and helping others to bring out the beauty of the natural instrument that lies within them is something to which I am very devoted. I like to make students feel comfortable and at ease in lessons, and you will find that I am very warm and friendly!

Every student is unique, with their own strengths, their own areas for improvement, and their own preference for certain styles of sing
ing. I can help you find what style makes your heart sing!

I have a broad range of credits, including the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof with Theodore Bikel (Tzeitel understudy), and Off-Broadway in Fiorello (Marie) and The Rose Tattoo (Flora). Among my many regional credits are Oliver at the Chiswick Park Theater in Sudbury, MA (Nancy), Camelot with Noel Harrison at the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, MA (Nimue/Guinevere understudy), and Is There Life After High School with Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Sharon Lawrence at the Burt Reynolds Theater in Jupiter, FL. I currently hold the post of Soloist at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Needham, and am a Guest Soloist for The Mother Church in Boston. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and have received additional training with many renowned pedagogues, including mezzo-soprano Sondra Kelly, and coaches Arlene Shrut from the Juilliard School, Michelle Alexander with Boston Lyric Opera, and Roger Malouf with the Metropolitan Opera.

My daughter's acting class with Mia was absolutely wonderful! She was very nervous going in because it was her first time trying out acting but she was immediately set at ease by Mia's warm and friendly personality. Mia also took the time to get to know my daughter and find out what her interests and goals were. Mia's enthusiasm for acting really inspired her and she is very excited about her upcoming classes.

I have enjoyed my lessons with Ashley because:

1. Pace of instruction is perfect for my level (beginner) and available practice time (limited).
2. Ashley isn't simply teaching me how to play a song; rather she is improving my technique in this critical period where bad habits can still be changed.
3. Always on time (granted instruction is at her location but none the less this is appreciated).
