Hi, I’m Jessica Landes, a freelance violinist and violin teacher with an acute interest in making live music accessible and a natural part of our environment.

LANDES STRING STUDIO

Developing life skills through music,
one step at a time.

I use a community-rich, collaborative form of the Suzuki approach, classical violin playing technique, all music genres, and a teaching method crafted to each student’s learning needs to develop well-rounded musicians that can use music in its many forms for life-long personal, local and global enrichment.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“I chose music lessons for my children because it broadens their scope of intellectual development and diversity of skill set.  I know that whatever my children choose to become, music lessons will be an underpinning of their success because of the connections it helps to create in the brain.  I’m not a musician, but I can see ways that the music lessons I took when I was a child benefit me to this day.”
