Jeremy Swider

Jeremy Swider has been teaching violin and viola at MacPhail for the past 21 years. He enjoys teaching all ages, from 4 to adult. Other positions he holds at MacPhail include: teaching through Online School Partnerships, serving as Chamber Music Coordinator, and Adult Chamber Music Camps Lead Teacher.

From classical to pop, improvisation and fiddle techniques, Jeremy’s teaching style incorporates a fun, well-balanced mixture of traditional technical materials and exciting musical repertoire to help students quickly gain more confidence in performance or audition situations. He also likes to help students develop their artistry by learning to listen carefully to themselves and form their own musical aesthetics.

He performs regularly with his wife, violinist Krista Broadway Swider, as the Broadway-Swider Duo and as a member of the Sonorous String Quartet. Jeremy has been featured in the MacPhail Spotlight Series, performing with pianist Gail Olszewski. He can also be heard playing in his church’s worship team at Bethel Christian Fellowship in St. Paul. He is a former member of the Woodlands Symphony Orchestra and the Brazos Valley Symphony, both in Texas.
