Private lessons offered in my studio. Fundamentals taught include: posture/positioning, basic concepts of rhythm and note/rest values, and note reading. For little ones (ages 4+) charts, toys, illustrations and games are used to provide incentive/motivation. Articulation, shifting, vibrato, and theory are also areas of focus. I've coached -Washington County Youth Orchestra, taught in area schools, been a member (1st violinist) of Kettle Moraine Symphony and have taught privately for 30+ years. References are available.

Lisa Kitzke

My name is Lisa Kitzke. I graduated from UW-Milwaukee in 1993 with a BFA in Music Performance. I teach traditional violin lessons in my home/studio in Jackson and accept students ages 4/5 yrs and older. In addition to teaching privately, I've coached the 2nd violins for the UW-Washington County Youth Orchestra, been a member of the 1st violin section in Kettle Moraine Symphony since 2010, play as 1st violinist in Mosaic String Quartet, taught in area schools for 8 years.

As for the lessons; each lesson takes into account each student's goals, abilities, experience, strengths and weaknesses. I also structure the lesson around each individual student; something you can only get in private lessons. My teaching style is open and honest, fun and encouraging. For young beginners, I typically will incorporate games, music listening, charts, toys, even illustrations to provide motivation and to keep learning fun and exciting.

This evaluation allows me to determine the course of instruction. It will only last a 1/2 hour, thus the rate of 1/2 hour lesson is charged. You are always welcome to ask for the advice in choosing the right one. It is typical to expect young students to have a hour lesson weekly. Older students or those that are intermediate to advanced levels may wish (and it will be suggested) to schedule 1 hour lessons each week. I will accept payment biweekly or monthly should that be convenient for you.
