What does Snoop Dog, San Francisco Opera and Minecraft have in common? Violinist, Jenny Bifano
Whether you’ve heard her on any of the Disney Park shows and rides Internationally or on numerous movie scores like Forrest Gump, Paw Patrol or Father of the Bride, classically trained violinist, Jenny is excited to bring over 40 years of teaching, recording and performance experience online. I love my job! There's no doubt that performing at a high level is exciting but having the opportunity to perform consistently and confidently comes with hard work. I don’t mind working hard but practicing doesn't have to be a chore. It has to be efficient and engaging, at any level. Jenny has enjoyed student of all ages and levels (yes, even adults!), using traditional, Russian and Suzuki methods. Many of Jenny’s students have continued professionally, while others play for personal enjoyment. I'm currently a session player in Nashville and some days are filled with recording violin effects that aren't traditionally taught but learned through experience. I'm excited to share both traditional and session playing techniques with you. I hope to create a safe learning environment where you can grow as a musician with a whole approach, learning technique, musicianship, theory, audition prep and geeking out on violin at any level : ) Let’s get started!
