Susanna J

Instruments:

I have a Master's degree in viola performance from University of Maryland, and a Bachelor's of Music from Indiana University. As a multi-faceted musician, I have taught students of all ages and performed in chamber music ensembles and orchestras in Indiana, Tennessee, and all over the east coast in venues such as the Kennedy Center in D.C., the Levitt Pavilion in Westboro, Conn., and Spectacle Island in the Boston Harbor. I am also passionate about international travel and collaboration- in 2013 and 2014 I traveled to teach and perform in San Salvador, El Salvador as part of a fellowship with the non-profit MusAid. Teaching is a very important part of my life and career, as I consider it to be the most valuable way to connect with others and work with children and adult students to develop a joy and passion for music.

Everyone can learn music but I recognize people learn differently.  I am very positive and supportive, so don't worry if you have not played or sung before.   In my master's degree study, I've done research on how to motivate different types of learners: visual, kinesthetic, aural and analytical - these are all intelligences; not one is better than the other.  Which style I use depends on how you learn best.

Instruments:

I have been teaching private lessons professionally since I graduated from Berklee in 2006. Prior to college, I tutored younger students for 4 years in my school's strings program for volunteer credit. Many of my students perform in auditioned orchestras and ensembles, including those for college! I have taught students as young as 5 and retirees in their 70's - each student's needs are different so I tailor their lessons around their goals. I am a solutions-driven teacher and love watching my students progress with a big smile on their face!

Hello, dear musicians! If you are not looking for your typical violin lesson, you have come to the right place. I started playing violin in a Suzuki method program, which taught me the importance of training your ear. I honed in my classical skills, and thereon pursued the unconventional in violin genres my going to Berklee College of Music. It gave me possibility to expand my ear even more with free improvisation, jam band, jazz, rock, funk, blues, pop, Middle Eastern and Latin genres, on top of orchestral and quartet playing. I was given the opportunity to play in Boston Symphony Hall, and start my rock band The Womps. If you want to pursue the unconventional and the unusual, come see me!
