Classical guitarist with 10 years of experience teaching in the Philadelphia area!

Methodology

Although well versed in a multitude of techniques, I primarily draw influence from the Abel Carlevaro, Aaron Shearer, and Suzuki methods. These, along with my recent Orff training, are the core of over ten years of experience in both private and group settings. I ceaselessly seek to engage my students through participation, play, and exciting challenges in an effort to instill a love of music and a desire to learn.

I am a recent graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, with a B.M. in classical guitar performance. Since then, I have attended and completed Level 1 of the Orff-Schulwerk program, a distinguished approach to music education.

Background

Jacqueline Westerduin has performed at NYC's Steinway Hall, the Baruch Performing Arts Center, the Holy Cross Monastery of West Park, NY, and the Cosy Cupboard Tea Room in Morristown NJ. In addition, she was invited to Ward’s Pond Estate in Dolgeville, New York as a guest performer for the Dolgeville Philharmonia concert series. Jacqueline, in a collaboration with composer Samora Pinderhughes, is featured in the original score for the independent film Milk and Honey, written and directed by Daniel Pfeffer.

Ms. Westerduin has performed solo repertoire at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, The Juilliard School, the Manhattan School of Music and at the historic Hobart Manor located on the campus of William Patterson University in North Haledon, NJ. Jacqueline’s repertoire includes works by J.S. Bach, F. Tarrega, H. Villa-Lobos, A. Barrios, and L. Berkeley.

In addition to private study, Ms. Westerduin has participated in master classes with guitarists Jason Vieaux, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Pepe Romero, and David Russell.
