Ms. Isabelle Rozendaal
Violin, Viola Teacher
I am a violinist and teacher from Rogers Park on the North side of Chicago. I studied violin performance and social activism at Oberlin College and Conservatory for my bachelors, and completed my masters degree in violin performance at DePaul University. I have been teaching violin for over 10 years now and absolutely love working with my students! I have experience teaching all ages, 3 to adult.
I also play baroque violin and maintain an active performance schedule with groups such as Baroque Band (chicago’s baroque orchestra), the Callipygian Players and regional orchestras in the area.
Teaching is so rewarding- I love helping students achieve their goals! I am a Suzuki certified teacher and my teaching has been a mix of Suzuki and traditional, depending on what is best for the student. I can also teach fiddle, improv, and pop arrangements!
In addition to performing and teaching violin, I am also very interested physical wellness and health, and have done yoga teacher training. My interest in healthy posture and alignment comes from my own journey to find a comfortable way to play the violin. Physical alignment and comfort is a big priority in my teaching. Movement practices I have studied include tai chi chuan, yoga, and Feldenkrais.
I teach private lessons at my studio in Rogers Park. To inquire about lessons email or give me a call!
