VIOLIN LESSONS

We teach our students not only how to play their instrument, but also how to 'learn how to learn' - a critical skill which students can then apply to any field they choose.

MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS

Celia Zhang

Celia Zhang

Director, Violin Faculty

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. 

Jennifer Wang

Violin Faculty

Jennifer Wang grew up in Pingtung, a small town in southern Taiwan, where her passion and talent for music blossomed. She is grateful for the life-changing music education she received and strives to empower others through education. After graduating from Taipei University of Education, she moved abroad to pursue her Master's degree at Boston University, where she is currently working towards her Doctor of Musical Arts degree.

 

Since 2019, Wang has been teaching orchestra classes at Boston Music Project before the start of the first class of the day. She is passionate about teaching and believes in the transformative power of music education. In addition to teaching, Wang is an active violinist in Boston and has performed with several orchestras, including the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, Boston Civic Symphony, Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, and Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2022, she earned the role of Concertmaster for the Boston Civic Symphony under the direction of Maestro Francisco Noya. Wang has also performed solo at Harvard Musical Association, Boston University Tanglewood Institute, and Boston Music Project, to name a few. In her free time, Wang enjoys participating in musical community service projects, such as leading worship in her church and performing at polling locations and hospitals.
