Private Violin Teacher

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!

Jared M.

Mukilteo, WA 98275


Private Violin Teacher

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.

I have a big experience teaching students all levels and ages. My goal is to keep the joy of music making for each and every student, but also to make sure you learn and advance after each lesson. I would happily work with you on the music you want, combining it with the specific violin techniques you need to have in order to play the instrument well.

About Kseniya

I have been teaching violin from young children to beginner adults for 10 years. I also teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.
I believe that the the music potential comes through discipline, self-motivation and passion. As a teacher, my goal is to get to know each of my students and create individually tailored lessons according to my student's needs and goals. I believe that a strong technical foundation is a key in music making - when a student feels comfortable playing the instrument , they find how much they are capable of doing and what a great joy is this music making process. This is why I put a strong emphasis on the technical aspects. They say "practice makes perfect", but in reality only perfect practice makes your playing perfect, in other words, my goal as a teacher, is to give my students all the right tools to

succeed, when after each lesson you feel you improved your playing and gained new skills, even if its a small one.
Lessons are taught using a Traditional method refer to students learning to read music. Whereas the Suzuki Method students learn by ear which I (might) use for very young students age 3-5. For older students I use certain aspects of the Suzuki method but definitely incorporate basic theory and note reading as early as possible.
All students will have the opportunity and are encouraged to perform in recitals.

She is really patient and fun to be around. Great environment for anyone of any age.

Classically trained, but I also love Irish and Bluegrass fiddle! Or, I can make skill-appropriate arrangements of whatever music you want to learn, and teach you the technique you need to master it!

I love sharing music with people of all ages. When your teacher is having a great time too, you'll learn more, better and faster!

I really can't describe the emotion of seeing a student light up when they conquer a new technique or figure out that song they obsessed over. Whether your child wants to join the school orchestra and learn classical method; or you were inspired by Lindsey Stirling and just want to learn that one song; or you're retired and have always dreamt of crossing "Learn an Instrument" off your bucket-list, I would love to guide you on your journey to musical literacy!

About Elly

Hi, my name is Elly. I was inspired to learn violin when I was very little, after seeing a performance of Riverdance- I fell in love with Irish fiddle and begged my mom to let me begin lessons.

I began classical violin lessons in elementary school. By middle school, I had worked my way up to the advanced school orchestra. In 7th grade things changed- we found out that both of our viola players would be missing our next concert. My orchestra teacher begged me to take a viola and methods book home that weekend and learn the parts to fill-in for our absentees. I ended up loving it! I pursued classical viola all the way through middle and high school, then at the University of Arizona, as part of numerous string ensembles and symphonic orchestras.

I continued independent studies of violin, frequently attending Bluegrass and Irish music

jams and festivals.

One of my favorite musical experiences was being part of the Northwest Intergenerational Community Orchestra: a full symphony in which members ranged in age from 9 to 90, and skill levels from first-year player to retired career professionals. I started as a guppy and ended up a respected mentor after several years' participation. Being immersed in that environment was simply amazing, and showed me that age and experience are never a limiting factor in the kind of beauty that can ensue from mutual musical passion.

I will teach all ages and abilities, and I would prefer to travel to you. If you are unable to host, I can possibly arrange an alternate location. Thanks for visiting my profile, and I hope to hear from you!

Private Violin Teacher

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 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.

Easy Violin Music for Beginners and Beyond

By Suzy S.

Playing some familiar tunes is one of the first things you may pursue when learning a new instrument. You might start the violin thinking it will be years before you can play the music you want, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that many familiar favorites are available as easy violin music. Simplified sheet music makes it easier than ever to move from bland scales and exercises to pieces you actually recognize. Add these pieces to your repertoire early on and you’ll return to th …
