Students can start with me as a beginner or as an advanced student looking to learn new practice skills, new technique, skills, and bow strokes. Students work on reading music, music theory, solo music, scales, exercises for tone and coordination, vibrato, sight reading, rhythm, audition music, and orchestral music. I have zoom performances several times a year. I teach a variety of music styles such as jazz, classical, romantic period music, 20th Century music, contemporary music, bluegrass, Celtic, Irish Fiddle, Scottish Fiddle, movie music, and popular music. I recommend many youth orchestras in the area that I encourage my students to join. I help students work on audition music for All Southern Youth Orchestra and All State Youth Orchestras and other Youth Orchestras and university auditions. I go at the student's pace and have started out many beginners that have reached Suzuki Book 10 level.

I'm the gramma of Chloe (the student)who is 12 yrs old and taking Viola lessons from Jill over Zoom for home school. And I have to say as I was listening in the background I was thinking, Wow! It's as if they're old friends already! She has a very reassuring and friendly personality. And Chloe already learned something in that first lesson when Jill was trying to assess Chloe's abilities. I'm sure you'll immediately like her teaching abilities as much as we do.
Renee M.
Jill is just amazing! She breaks things down for me in session to help me develop my skills in a manner that helps the information just sick. She is always so patient and has such a great sense of humor.

My daughter has been learning from Jill to play violin for more than five years and she has improved dramatically over that time. She also takes piano lessons with Jill which has fed her musical curiosity. Jill is patient, positive, and an expert in her craft. Great teacher!!!

Come and play the violin! There is so much music out there, and if you can even sort of sing a melody, there is a way to get it into your fingers. If you are already playing and want to improve, or expand what you have, you can go for it!

About Donna

She knows how to identify what style of learning is appropriate. She knows how to listen, and how to determine what the goals are. She doesn't impose an agenda, but is committed to helping the learner acquire technical skills while making lessons fun and productive. Top marks!

*** Lesson Details ***
I strongly believe that, if every child would be provided with an ideal environment, would gain extraordinary ability. There are no exceptions. No one can tell how able man is by the nature. What is known is the ability that is spoiled or developed. It cannot be denied that most children speak their native languages beautifully by learning about 3000-4000 words by age 5 or 6. Nothing can clearer demonstrate of the original power of the human mind. Through the years of studying and teaching music I realized that this is the most important concept for developing each kid's talent, to increase his or her ability to the maximum. Therefore I am combining the great methods of teaching violin. The Suzuki method and the Russian school method. Suzuki method helps at the earliest stage of playing an instrument and I am using later Russian school method for more advanced period of studying.

Hello!

I have over 10 years of musical experience playing the violin, and other instruments. I also have over 3 years of experience working with children ages 4-12. I have the ability to work with all ages.

My interest is in the student. I am interested in tailoring lessons to the goals and desires of each student. I specialize in students starting out and getting their feet wet in the music world. I believe in setting goals and achieving them in a way that works best for my students.

About Chelsea

Welcome everyone! I have a few beliefs: I believe that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Whether it is violin, ukulele, piano, their voice, whatever! Music is a part of what makes us human, and is important for personal development. I believe that no one is "too old" to star

I switched to the viola at age 19 and pursued both a bachelor's and master's in Viola Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music. Music is always a journey and I have been luck

"Hallie is an extremely good teacher and is very, very kind. Although she misses nothing in terms of mistakes and weak areas, she always focuses on the positive and uses positive reinforcement to get the most out of the student. She makes very efficient use of lesson time and knows how to isolate any issues that come up. My child is a teenager and she connects very well with him. He has some ongoing issues with his form and she is so good about gently reminding him in such a way that he wants to improve and doesn't feel criticized. I'd highly recommend her. She's a very nice person and great teacher. So glad I found her."

Her clear instruction provides phenomenal motivation to intensely practice, and excel. I am humbled by her teaching of music theory in her lessons as well. Our orchestra group Autumn established has amazing synergy. As an engineer by trade, I have a deeper feeling of resonance and nature, through violin, thanks to Autumn."
