I have 15+ years of teaching experience and committed to building a lasting relationship between my students and their love of music.

My philosophy for violin lessons is to prepare students to play in a group by developing their technique, musicality, and ear-training skills. In my experience, students are more engaged and have more fun playing with others.

I will be your first duet partner! Contact me now to setup a lesson.

For two years, I took viola lessons with Chen. In my seven years of studying music, I can confidently say that Chen has been one of my favorite music teachers.

Chen is a very effective teacher. He is very patient and is constantly thinking of new ways to tackle solving a student’s struggles. If you put in the time, work, and practice, he will help you to advance in playing your instrument with greater proficiency.

Since Chen is very knowledgeable in his craft, he helped me to know what to look for when purchasing a new bow. He knows many practice strategies and techniques to get your scales, etudes, and repertoire to become performance ready.

When I first started taking lessons with Chen, I could hardly play the viola at all. After two years of learning under his instruction, he had guided me to learn and develop the skills needed to get me through three college orchestra concerts, becoming the principal viola in that orchestra, performing two college solo recitals, and joining a university community orchestra.

Thanks to Chen, he has taken me to levels of proficiency with the viola I would never imagine I would get to. If you are looking to learn how to play violin or viola, I would definitely recommend Chen as your teacher. Thank you, Chen.

Barry Harris, the great Jazz pianist, and educator says, “I have such a ball in my classes, and I learn so much from my students. They probably don’t realize that I come to school here, too. I’m just the oldest member of the class. I wish everyone could experience the blessing of learning new things all the time.”

The above statement describes how I feel when I am teaching. I have been playing and performing for over 20 years in many capacities, and still, music continues to teach me new things every time. Not only do I want to share that experience with you, but I also want to guide you into having that experience for yourself.

About Ian

I started on the violin when I was about 8 years old. I began with classical music, studying in the Suzuki method. I loved my time in the Suzuki method; I wasn’t always the best student; however, in hindsight, I am incredibly grateful for the experience with my teacher, the method, and the strong

Mr. Jesse is a very effective teacher and my 16 year old daughter has progressed very quickly in playing classical guitar and violin in just under two years. The lessons are very productive while still being very enjoyable. I'd recommend him for both for students who are learning a new instrument or already have a musical background.

"Amazing teacher

Kelvin is a great teacher. He has a hands-on teaching style integrated with little bits of music theory. Also, he gives you constructive criticism on your originals that doesn't insult your artistic style, but rather works with it. When I first found Kelvin, I told him I wanted to learn an array of instruments so I can understand the workings of a orchestra before I assemble one of my own, and he was in full support of it! Over the course of several lessons, we've listened to several CDs and analyzed the arrangements listening for the entrance of different instruments that add complexity and depth to the music. Kelvin is the ideal teacher for learning the general concepts behind building a song, and learning specifics within songwriting. Assuming you dedicate enough time to your music between lessons, Taking lessons with Kelvin has been the best investment yet on my musical journey."

"I am an adult learner who started working with Hallie January 8. Hallie is an excellent instructor. She has a style of instructing that is very patient and nurturing. It is very clear that she is a strong believer in positive reinforcement over negative reinforcement. She is very open to questions and when you do not understand something, will try to find alternative ways of explaining the concept, rather than simply repeating what she has already said. I could definitely see that she would be very good working with children. I leave every lesson with Hallie in a very positive place wanting to immediately go home and practice. I feel very fortunate that I have discovered Hallie and look forward to working with her for years to come."

Viola Vs. Violin: What's the Difference?

Don’t worry! Tons of people make the same mistake, and it can even be difficult for musicians to distinguish the viola vs. violin at first glance.  There are several differences, including some obvious ones, a …

A Beginner's Guide to Violin Bows: 4 Details to Consider

Selecting a violin bow, much like choosing a guitar, can be a very subjective process.  To the uninitiated, it's "just a violin bow."  They're all the same, right?  Wrong.  To the seasoned violinist, the perfect bow will depend on the player's technique, playing style and overall personal preference.  There are several factors that can affect the sound of the bow on the strings, including strength, shape, and age of the bow. Most beginner violins come with bows that are perfectly fine, b …
