Hello! My name is Juliette and I am a professional violinist and teacher. I have taught hundreds of students around the country and am now opening up my teaching to the online world. I have seen great results with my online students. Lessons are very focused and fun. I am a very inspiring, fun and devoted teacher. I have studied with some of the finest musicians in the world at Rice University and Indiana University. I currently teaching and performing in Philadelphia, PA.
Juliette is an excellent teacher and really knows how to get her students engaged. She's been great with both beginners and more advanced players and always makes it fun for them
I have known Juliette professionally for many years. I have also taught side by side with her on many occasions. I had always know her playing to be of the highest level, however I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered her teaching was at an even higher level. Her number one priority when we taught together was that her students had fun. I saw first hand that this teaching priority led to joy, then enthusiasm and finally love. I regularly work with Juliette's students and many of them are fine players, but all of them love studying with Juliette. I highly recommend anyone learn how to play violin with this fine teacher!
Juliette is a great teacher and colleague. She has training from beginner to advanced and is great with kids.
I like to get to know the student as a person first. It is important to understand their musical and educational background as well as what their goals and ambitions are for their musical studies.
I have studied at some of the finest music schools in the country including Rice University Shepherd School of Music and Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. My mentors are some of the finest musicians and teachers in the world and I have extensive pedagogy training (traditional and Suzuki).

Our first lesson will be a 30 minute trial where we will meet and greet and we can decide if we want to work together or not. Once we decide to work together you can prepay for as few as four and as many as ten lessons at a time.
I was a helper teacher for Mimi Zweig at the Indiana University School of Music String Academy for gifted young musicians. I have always felt that teaching is incredibly rewarding and that it is important to inspire as well as instruct students.
I have worked with students from 5 year old beginners through adults. My preference for online lessons is to work with students who are 6+. I have had advanced students who have won competitions and are on track to becoming professional musicians!
I recently led a Book 1 Bootcamp on Zoom with students from all over the country! It was a blast, you can look up the video on youtube. As a performer, I recently played violin and viola for the pit orchestra of The National Broadway Tour of Hamilton! I have also performed with Opera San Jose, the Santa Cruz Symphony, Houston Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Charleston Symphony, the Aspen Music Festival, and as concertmaster of the Phantom of the Opera National tour.
Make sure the teacher has had pedagogy training, experience working with students like yourself and is also an accomplished musician who can demonstrate on the instrument. It is also important to have a good personal connection with the teacher so make sure to do a facetime/skype interview/trial lesson before signing up for regular lessons.
What are your goals? How much time are you willing to commit to the instrument? Learning the violin takes a long time and you need to be committed to the process which involves regular lessons and daily practice.
