Now at Brio: Violin Lessons

In the fall of 2018, Brio's music department is expanding to include violin instruction with Jordan Clayton. Born and raised in Chatham-Kent, Jordan is an experienced, educated performer and instructor. As a violin teacher, Jordan specializes in equipping young students with a complete technical and musical foundation. While he employs elements of the mother-tongue methods of Dr. Suzuki in his studio, he also finds rich inspiration in the methods of Létourneau, Doflein, Flesch, Sevcik, Schradiek, Mazas, and Wohlfahrt, among others. Limited spaces are available with Jordan for the 2018-19 season. Register now!
