Violin Lessons (for adults)
I have had violin lessons with Jared for almost 4 months now. I have some basics in violin but had not played for 17 years. Jared helped me to get back to playing pretty fast. His technique is great and the teaching is pleasant. He makes the learning fun. He is also very patient and flexible with my busy work schedule. Thanks!!!Apr 1, 2017Verified
I loved taking violin lessons from Jared at Macfarlane Violin Studio. He challenged my skill in both music and performance, was patient with my progress, encouraging yet strict with techniques, and passionate about the art of violin. After just a few lessons I already saw progress in my skill. I highly recommend him as a violin teacher to anyone looking to learn or improve their skill in playing violin.Jun 29, 2019
Jared is patient and thoughtful violin instructor who has worked with my thirteen year old son to improve his violin skills- he has made tremendous strides in the past six months. He and my son have selected the pieces to work on together; this has kept my son engaged and motivated to practice at home. He has also been very flexible in adjusting lesson times so as to fit our busy schedule. He has developed a strong rapport with my son whose love for the instrument has grown tremendously. I strongly recommend Jared as a violin instructor.May 1, 2014
Jared was my youngest daughter's violin teacher for two years. Lessons were fun and engaging and he was very patient with my energetic daughter who literally couldn't stay in one place during the lesson. My daughter had chosen the violin because her older sister plays (who she adores). A year and a half into her lessons, Jared suggested that the violin did not appear to be a good fit, which I reluctantly agreed. During the next six months, he continued to teach her so she could continue learning music while we decided what instrument would be better suited and allow me time to find a suitable teacher. My younger daughter now plays cello (a paperweight which keeps her in one spot), which as Jared predicted, is better suited to her personality. She loves the cello. He has continued to take an interest in her musical studies and extended an open invitation for her to play in his student recitals so that she can get performance experience because her cello teacher has only a handful of students. I highly recommend Jared as a teacher because he is an incredibly talented musician, is great with children, is active in the local music scene, and most importantly, puts the needs of his students first, even if it means a reduction in his income.Apr 20, 2014
