The first lesson was great. She explained some of the fiddle's background, how to hold it, and how to play it all in an interactive way. The time flew by. My daughter is very enthusiastic about the lessons & even more excited about the fiddle than before the lesson. Kathleen is awesome.

I played violin for two years in Jr High school. That is to say, I was way past "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" but couldn't quite do vibrato without ripping the violin away from my face. That was 30 years ago. I hadn't touched a violin until about a month ago.

Jae-In listens patiently and adapts her approach to what works best for me. For example, I explained that I can barely read music, I learned by sound when the orchestra rehearsed and memorized the material. I'm older and have both the discipline and desire to learn to read music. So half my homework she played for me to memorize and the other half helps build my music reading. :)

I feel privileged to have somebody of Jae-In's caliber as a teacher. Her skill with the violin is absolutely superb. Even more importantly, she is super friendly and kind. She immediately made me feel welcome as she greeted me with a big smile. With her, I can go from beginner to advanced without needing to switch teachers. This, I feel, reduces the likelihood that I will form a habit early in my training that limits my progress further down the road.

I highly recommend Jae-In no matter your age or playing level.

Want to learn violin? My students have unique lessons tailored to their needs and own personal goals. Basic skills and advanced techniques are taught alongside music interpretation and expression, as well as basic music history, music theory, and other tools necessary to make informed performance decisions. What do you want to learn? Tell me and we can discover it together!

About Calvin
As a classically trained violist with orchestral, chamber, and solo performance experience, my teaching style is geared towards performance and expression. I don't adhere to any one book of teaching, adjusting my teaching to the unique needs of each student. My teachers came from different pedagogical backgrounds; as a result, I have a wide array of teaching tools available to pass on to my students. I have taught with the Longy School of Music's El Sistema program and had a Teaching Artist residence with Cambridge Public Schools. I hold a BM in Viola performance from the Lamont School of Music and a MM in Viola Performance from the Longy School of Music.

I have played viola since I first began my musical studies at age 9. As a result, I have seen teachers hold viola students back, simply because they play the "lesser" instrument in th
e viola family. I do not hold my students back and I hold them all to the same high level of playing, regardless of which instrument they play.

I've never had any experience with orchestral instruments before. After one lesson with Calvin, I'm learning to read music again. He showed me proper technique as well. I feel that I will be progressing quickly under Calvin's instruction. My first lesson flew by, and I learned so much in a very short amount of time. His attention to smaller details in technique are very helpful as well. I absolutely recommend Calvin as a viola instructor!

Beginner violin; also performance prep for intermediate through advanced/professional

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Curriculum Gradation:
Elements of rhythm
Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation
Tone development
Finding/Expanding your range
Dexterity, speed, and accuracy
How to project
How to advance to the next level
Music theory
Playing by ear
Improvisational techniques

Chicago, IL

View Full Profile

The principle central to my method of teaching is that the student is not a container that needs to be filled, but rather a light bulb that needs to be turned on. So, first and foremost I teach my students how to think, not what to think.

Whether you are pursing serious study or simply a casual mentor, I'll provide instruction to suit your needs. There is nothing more rewarding for me than making a student aware of their gifts and understand how to nurture them going on, making my 'job' obsolete.

About Matthew
Music is something all of use as a form of vitality! It's something that humanity universally enjoys and participates in; whether it's through listening to music, attending a concert or actually playing, you are part of music.

I've always believed that anyone can develop musical talent once the correct learning environment is set up. When teaching, my responsibilities include inspiring the child and advising the parent so our goals can be accomplished during the week. I adapt my teaching style to suit the needs of each student, so I can keep my students interested in playing and motivated by their own accomplishments.

My aim is to establish the fundamentals of good playing from an early stage of study; such fundamentals are careful listening, correct posture and efficient motion patterns. In order to achieve these goals, I incorpo
rate pedagogical concepts from Paul Rolland, Ivan Galamian, Kato Havas and ones that I've developed, using familiar repertoire to learn new techniques. Small steps are celebrated as building blocks to a better playing technique.

Learning the violin is dynamic and full of creativity and problem solving. We are at the same time disciplinarians, cheerleaders, poets, psychologists, and violinists. As a performer myself, I demonstrate frequently in front of my students. In fact, I will often choose passages that I can't play perfectly myself but that I am able to greatly improve right in front of their eyes. My goal in doing this is to show them how in a relatively short amount of time, but with immense focus, one can solve a problem; in a sense, I am practicing in front of them.

Whether the violin is an interest, hobby or something you want to pursue professionally, I'll always give you the best advice and training to achieve your personal goals.

My current private students have had great success in studio recitals and becoming confident in their own musical ability. I'll always bring a positive and encouraging attitude to tackle any obstacle in your playing.

Hi! I'm a Berklee College of Music graduate, and I've been playing violin my whole life. I'm an experienced teacher of 7 years- I have played in orchestras, toured in bands, written my own music, and I've taught all ages and abilities over the last decade. I specialize teaching the Suzuki method, fiddle styles, and improvising, as well as technique, reading, and music theory. Can't wait to play music with you!

About Carolyn
Hi, I grew up in Northern California in a family of Texan musicians, who knew from the start I'd be a musical trouble maker. From my early days of Suzuki violin, to marching band, and then to bluegrass and Billie Holiday, I make myself musically at home wherever there's a groove. Now a graduate of Berklee College of Music, and an active part of Berklee's American Roots program, I'm a recipient of the Fletcher Bright Scholarship Award, a 2015 Freshgrass Fiddle Competition finalist, and two-time participant in the Acoustic Music Seminar at the Savannah Music Festival. Most recently, my project The Page Turners has been given the 2016 Freshgrass Best Duo Award. I've performed widely at festivals across the United States such as Grey Fox, the Three Sisters Festival, Berkeley Bluegrass Festival and Newport Folk Festival, as well as endeavors
abroad with the Nairobi Symphony. I've performed with many beloved artists, such as Bruce Molsky, Aoife O'Donovan, Joe Walsh, and Darol Anger. I have been teaching all ages and abilities for 7 years, all over the country. My favorite things are cooking, two-stepping, and hanging out with dogs. Carolyn is moving into Austin, TX in the Fall of 2017.
