About Patricia

PATRICIA JANCOVA recently received her Masters of Music degree in violin performance from Syracuse University’s Setnor School of Music where she studied with renowned violinist/violist and pedagogue, Laura Bossert. During her graduate studies, she played both violin and viola as a chamber musician at Setnor and for summer festivals including LyricaFest and Festival Baltimore. Miss Jancova has played in numerous ensembles including the Binghamton Philharmonic, Philadelphia Sinfonia, the Miami Lyric Opera, the Sydney Conservatorium Symphony, and the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra. Versed in a wide range of musical styles, she has also had the privilege of performing with artists including Mark O’Connor, Bobby McFerrin, George Benson, Chick Corea, Gloria Estefan, and Dawn Upshaw.

As an educator, Miss Jancova has over six years of private teaching experience with all ages and skill levels. Her teaching style is a conglomerate influenced by several different methods and pedagogues including the O'Connor and Suzuki methods. She was a Teaching Assistant for the Frost School of Music Outreach program and also served as a clinician/judge for several student groups including the Syracuse Youth Orchestra, the Florida Youth Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. A member of the American String Teachers Association, Miss Jancova is always looking for ways to improve her teaching skills to help her students succeed.

Teaching Philosophy: I believe the most important job of a music teacher is to discover and cultivate what motivates each individual student to learn, and what allows him or her to succeed. It is my goal to help my students find their unique musical voice, to develop proper technique on their instruments, to hone personal skills such as responsibility and self-motivation, and to foster a general love of music and music-making in their lives. I strive to make lessons and practice fun for my students and to instill in them the importance of using their bodies in a healthy and ergonomic manner. I pride myself on utilizing creative, out-of-the-box thinking to help students overcome musical and technical challenges in unique and interesting ways.
