TESTIMONIALS

Miss Ashley has patiently nurtured and developed Sophia’s love for the violin for the past 6 years. Sophia’s skills have blossomed under her expert guidance. We look forward to Miss Ashley continuing Sophia’s development and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Jennifer

Ashley Jones violin is the “right fit” for my beginning violinist. Ashley is a gifted teacher who has taught my daughter using the Suzuki method while supplementing her repertoire with contemporary favorites. It is an exceptional teacher who is able to intuit how and when to push or praise- Ashley has this gift.

Barbara

My six-year old son has been studying the violin with Miss Ashley for a little over a year. My husband and I have enjoyed watching his progression as a musician and violinist, which we attribute to Miss Ashley’s holistic approach to teaching him. She incorporates a motley of techniques to engage our son during their weekly lessons- from drumming together in rhythmic patterns on her African drums to playing a variety of games that teach him parts of the violin, musical terms and proper body posture while playing the violin. The culmination of their weekly lessons comes twice a year when Miss Ashley offers a concert where all of her students, including our son, can perform pieces of music that they have been working on throughout the year for their friends and family.  It is a proud day for our son and a highlight for us. In a nutshell, Miss Ashley is a true gem and we are so glad that we are part of her violin family.

Amy

Ashley Jones is a fun, knowledgeable, and supportive teacher with years of experience.  Working with Ashley has helped give me the foundation I needed to pursue my lifelong passion for playing the violin. Highly recommended!

Natasha

Our daughter has been taking violin lessons for 5 years with Miss Ashley. As a teacher, she has gone above and beyond meeting our expectations. Her passion and expertise show through her teaching. She keeps our daughter engaged and she loves coming to her lessons.  We are so grateful to have her as a teacher.

Kelli

As one of Ashley’s long standing students, I can say that her teaching style is progressive and relaxed enough to have inspired me to commit to the violin. Ashley is well-rounded in various genres of violin and fiddle style music. She has motivated and inspired me to love the instrument and to be the best player I can be.

METHODOLOGY + APPROACH

Ashley’s approach to teaching draws upon many fields of experience and education. Markedly, she was trained in and as a Suzuki Teacher.  Though she prescribes not to be an exclusive Suzukian, she does offer strict Suzuki instruction. With her diverse musical performance experience, she recognizes the importance in offering different styles of playing such as classical, bluegrass, Celtic, jazz and fiddle.  

Music is a higher revelation than wisdom or philosophy.

– Ludwig Van Beethoven
