Meet Our Instructors
OUR STUDENTS LOVE US!
After training from Juilliard, Yale and other top music conservatories and programs in the world, violinist Celia Zhang moved to Boston and came back to her first true love - sharing the process of making and loving music. She has gained a reputation not only for teaching with strong results, but also creating a process that makes students want to pursue more - accompanied with humor, a firm attitude and the occasional eccentricities.
Guitar, Ukulele Faculty
Jason Ji is a one-man-band, multi-genre fingerstyle guitarist and songwriter from Australia whose talent got the legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers to laugh in joy. A graduate of Berklee College of Music and classically trained from eleven years old, he got featured in 2019 Guitar Night: Pop and Rock as the only soloist, the 2019 International Folk Festival in Berklee, as well as China’s Got Talent in 2019, receiving all four “yes” marks from the judges. He currently has a weekly residency at Tuscan Kitchen, Seaport on Thursday, and Friday nights, and Salem on Saturday nights, so come listen for yourself!
One-on-One with Instructor
Private Lessons occur once a week at your regular time for 30/45/60 minutes (your choice), where your individual instructor will customize a lesson plan to suit your personal level, interests and needs.
Lessons currently held online and in person, student's choice. Check out our Team of top quality Faculty. See below for lesson rates.
Complimentary with your private lessons fee, this once a month class is open to all VYCo students to share their in-progress works with their peers. The warm and friendly environment is a favorite among current students! All instruments are welcome, as are family audience members. Classes are currently hybrid, both in-person and online via Zoom link.
