Jared MacFarlane 

Learn the violin using the Suzuki method. I teach violin students of all ages from no experience to beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. I strive for greater playing ability in a nurturing environment while always making a beautiful sound. My music education focuses the student through immersion, encouragement, small steps, and an unforced timetable for learning material based on each student's development and ability to imitate examples and internalize principles. Regular consistent practice is required and parent involvement is encouraged for younger students. Reviewing material, position, intonation, and bow techniques to always make a beautiful sound is of primary importance. I teach out of my own studio in Mukilteo.
