I’m Steven Maloney and I play and teach violin. I am also the creator of Accompany (, a web app for violin practice.

I began formal violin study at age 16 in Houston and was accepted into The Juilliard School in New York two years later, where I received the Kreisler Scholarship, Gluck Fellowship and Gardner Prize. 

After graduation from Juilliard I studied privately with members of the Guarneri Quartet as well as violinists in the New York Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony.

I have played professionally as an orchestral musician in the New Jersey Symphony, North Carolina Symphony, Jupiter Symphony, Elmhurst and Oak Park Symphony orchestras.  I have also performed as a soloist  and chamber musician, to critical acclaim.  

In recent years I have increasingly devoted my time to teaching young people and adult beginners.  I have taught at the Music Institute of Chicago and now have my own studio at Faith United Methodist Church in Downers Grove.
