Jackie Timberlake graduated cum laude from Ithaca College in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Music. She studied viola performance with Debra Moree and Suzuki violin pedagogy under Sandford Reuning. In the years following, Jackie has performed with professional ensembles, such as the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes and the Binghamton Philharmonic. She also regularly performs in string quartets at weddings and other events, and has been a member of the local Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra and Woodstock Symphony Orchestra.

Jackie has experience teaching violin and viola to students ages 3 and up. She draws on a Suzuki method background, as well as teaching and observational experience through the Stringendo Orchestra School and Ithaca College pedagogy courses. Over the past 6 years, she’s worked with a full studio of 20-30 students in Poughkeepsie, NY and Kingston, NY after teaching part time in Ithaca for several years. Jackie is passionate about engaging individual students to help them grow as players, musicians, and active learners. She believes it’s important for students to take ownership over their playing and musical goals and encourages all of her students to participate in ensembles to get involved in the rich community of young musicians in our area. She also holds annual studio recitals and regularly prepares her students for auditions and festivals.
