About Jessica H.

Seattle, WA

View Full Profile

Experienced and enthusiastic violin teacher of almost ten years looking for students! Lessons are tailored to each student’s interests and learning style, while also developing a solid technical basis. Beginning students start out generally with the Strictly Strings method books and are supplemented by chosen songs as they progress. Most important to lessons is for the students to feel their forward momentum and enthusiasm for learning!

About Jessica
Expect fun and relaxed lessons with an emphasis from the beginning of establishing a love and appreciation for music while developing and polishing technique!

Hello! My name is Jessi H. and I received a Bachelor’s of Art in Music from Bryn Mawr College and a Master’s of Music in Theory and Composition from the University of New Mexico. Playing with other people is a great joy and throughout my schooling and afterward, I have performed in in orchestras, chamber ensembles, pit ensembles, and in collaborations with artists in other mediums. I began teaching violin lessons during my undergraduate degree and have maintained a private studio since then, which has been full of a wide variety of students and has branched out to theory and composition.

My intention in the first few weeks of lessons is to identify the goals of each studen
t and how best they learn. While familiar with most teaching methods, I prefer to modify my style of teaching to what is effective for each student. If the student is motivated by what we are playing, then skills grow exponentially faster. Students are encouraged to perform in spring and winter recitals to showcase their progress.

After three to six months, my students can expect to have a solid foundation in the subject they are studying, a start on the repertoire or subjects of their choice, and motivation to keep going!

About Jared M.

Mukilteo, WA

Learn the violin using the Suzuki method. I specialize in teaching violin to young students with no experience to beginning and intermediate levels. I strive for greater playing ability in a nurturing environment while always making a beautiful sound.

About Jared
Contact 425 three eight seven 5401 or jared.macfarlane at gmail . com

My early childhood music education focuses the student through immersion, encouragement, small steps, and an unforced timetable for learning material based on each student's development and ability to imitate examples and internalize principles. Regular consistent practice is required and parent involvement is encouraged for younger students. Reviewing material, position, intonation, and bow techniques to always make a beautiful sound is of primary importance.

About Linnea W.

Everett, WA

I have 10 years of teaching experience and teach beginning to intermediate violin lessons. Violin was the first instrument I learned to play and I especially enjoy working with beginning string players. Developing a good ear for pitches and proper playing technique are extremely important for string players and I focus on these areas foremost. Each lesson is customized for the student’s age, interest, and technical level.

About Linnea
I am a freelance oboist, reed maker, and music teacher in the Seattle area. My teaching studio is currently based in Everett. I have eight years of teaching experience and love working with students of all ages. My primary instrument is oboe, but I also have a passion for teaching beginning violin (the instrument which I started on). I have a Master of Music Performance degree from Arizona State University in oboe performance and a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from Whitworth University in both oboe and violin.

About Brooke S.

Close
Enumclaw, WA

View Full Profile

My goal as a teacher is to provide consistent and positive learning opportunities for each student by:
1. Developing a well-balanced lesson plan that benefits the student.
2. Provide performance opportunities.
3. Encouraging regular practice.
4. Communicating progress with the parent and student.

About Brooke
Hi, there! My name is Brooke and I am excited to work with you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn to read music, make progress by setting weekly goals, and working on performance skills to build confidence. I am currently available to teach lessons at my retail location and online. Below you can view my teaching policies as well as FAQ about lessons with me and learning violin. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!

***Teacher Responsibility***
My goal is to provide consistent and positive learning opportunities for each student by:

1. Developing a well-balanced lesson plan that benefits the student.
2. Provide performance opportunities. (This may vary for online lessons depending on location.)
3. Encouraging regular practice.
4. Communicating progress with the parent
and student.

***Student/Parent Responsibility***
While I will do everything I can to keep your child motivated, I will need consistent help and support from you. This might be the first serious commitment your child has made, and after four years of teaching I have learned that a child will only be as committed as their parent is when it comes to learning a new instrument. I expect that parents of young students (12 yrs. and under) will be supportive in the following ways:

1. Provide an instrument and any other required books or accessories needed for lessons.
2. Encourage a consistent practice time and acknowledge their efforts.
3. Be on time for your lesson.
4. Communicate any questions or concerns with me.

***Lesson Details and Preparation***
Please be prepared when logging on. Your lesson is time for instruction, not practice. For online lessons I suggest logging on in an environment that is quiet and free from distractions. To make the most out of your lesson time, I suggest logging on to your lesson with your assigned music, completed assignment(s), instrument tuned, a pencil, notebook, and trimmed fingernails. Please be on time when logging on for your lesson.

***Required Music***
To start out, I recommend students purchase Essential Elements Volume One for Violin before the first lesson. This book will cover basic note reading, rhythm, form, and more. Then, we will work in whatever you would like to learn as you become more comfortable and confident with the basic fundamentals. Learning the basics is critical to learning the violin, but I want to do everything I can in my power to make your lesson experience fun and memorable!

***FAQ about Lessons***
Q: Can anyone learn the violin?
A: Yes! I have worked with students as young as four years old, and as old as eighty. You are never too young or too old to learn something new!

Q: Where should I purchase my violin from?
A: If you can, I recommend going to a store location and trying a violin out for yourself so you can get a proper fitting. While purchasing a violin online is convenient, it is hard to know for sure what you are purchasing. Some things to make sure of when purchasing a violin are strings that properly fit the violin, a bridge that curves from the lowest to highest string (not the same height for every string) and pegs that stay put when playing. You also want to make sure your violin will be able to stay in tune for the length of a lesson, which is something a music specialist can help you determine at a retail location.

Q: How often should I tune my violin?
A: You should check to make sure your violin is in tune every time you play it. You can purchase a tuner from most music stores or download a tuning app for free. To make the most out of your lesson time, I strongly recommend tuning your instrument before logging on for your lesson. (I go over how to tune the violin in the first lesson.)

Q: How often should I practice?
A: One of the most common questions I am asked as a teacher is how much a student should practice during the week. I recommend that beginning students practice a minimum of 120 minutes (or two hours) a week. This can be divided into 30 minutes a day for four days a week. I have found that these numbers have provided excellent results for students during the first six months of playing.

Ahhhh....the seeet sound of the violin! I began teaching violin as part of a PTSA after school enrichment program. I taught for two years to high cap children from 2nd grade up to the 5th grade.

Our studies included theory, intonation, bow technique and rhythm.

I then began teaching privately to students and have enjoyed that for the last four years. I customize the lessons according to the student’s own apptitude.

I encourage participation in recitals to help build cinfidence and encourage personal growth. I do respect a students decline and we find other ways for self-confidence.

The best part of teaching is watching a student grow in their capabilities.

About Tudi
Tudi Campbell is a classically trained cellist and violinist, and customizes lessons to meet the needs of each student. She teaches beginning to intermediate on both cello and violin for all ages. Tudi believes in providing a strong background of music theory, intonation, and aiding the student in music notation. Tudi believes in building a solid foundation to assist students with performance skills.

Tudi believes that the cello and violin are for everyone, not just those interested in a professional career. She emphasizes the student's personal “voice” and style. Tudi believes in allowing the student to take part in choosing their own musical path. Tudi aims to make music as fun as possible while helping the student to mature in the skill of playing the cello or violin.

Tudi currently performs with the Evergreen Community Orche
stra under the direction of Dr. Marcin Paczkowski. Tudi also enjoys gardening, kayaking, sewing and reading.

Currently attending university and would like to offer private lessons to individuals aiming to begin learning violin or continue on a trajectory to becoming advanced! With over 10 years of having received private instruction, I am confident that I can give you the knowledge and instruction you need to become a great violinist. I am classically trained and most familiar with the Suzuki method.

About Emily
I am a 19 year old student attending university, hoping to offer private lessons for beginner and intermediate violinists. My previous experience with music instruction began several years ago in my youth symphony. While I myself was in the advanced high school orchestra, I also coached the sinfonette, a small group designed for young beginner musicians. I also on several occasions have coached violinists one-on-one through learning intermediate pieces and orchestral parts.

Learn violin and have fun doing it! I don’t have years of teaching under my belt, however I have years of experience playing and enjoy passing on my love of playing to young kids finding their way in music! Everyone is different, so lessons will be altered and catered to the students specific needs. There will be homework, (because practice makes perfect) but rewards will be given just for trying and not giving up! Always have a positive attitude even when things get hard and we can get your young child sounding like a mini itzhak Perlman.

About Savahanna
Lessons should be two times a week or more; you’ll need to have your own instrument however everything else is provided for. Expect to improve each week, even if it’s just baby steps! Everyone goes at their own pace, so don’t be discouraged. All lessons are altered to your needs. Plan on setting goals each week and having homework given to be able to obtain them!
