Services that help you to create your world

Please inquire for services at quinton@quintonmorris.org

I have never been one to follow the status quo. From the time I was a kid until now, I have always been creative and loved to engage in projects that were different from everyone else. Whether it’s been selling out Carnegie Hall for three consecutive years, founding a string octet called The Young Eight and celebrating ten years of successful concert tours, teaching residencies or building a music program from the ground up at Seattle University, all of those experiences have allowed me the opportunity to help bring communities of people together, to celebrate their art and inspire change for the better. In every instance of my being, I create my world and now I want to help you create yours too.

Lecture & Performance

Quinton Morris is available for solo recitals, solo concerto works and chamber music performances in the United States and abroad.


private violin lessons

Dr. Morris teaches private violin lessons in the Seattle area to students ranging from ages 12 through undergraduate years. He teaches violinists both at Seattle University (www.seattleu.edu) as well as his private violin studio. Lessons are also available via Skype for students who do not live in the Seattle area. Former students of Dr. Morris have attended major music festivals and conservatories/universities around the country.

student master classes

Dr. Morris works with individual students and/or small chamber ensembles in a master class in front of an audience of observers or classroom of students. These specialized master classes allow students to engage with Dr. Morris on repertoire they are either learning for the first time or preparing to present in a major performance or competition.

This is perfect for instructors who teach string students in elementary, secondary or collegiate music programs.

Orchestra/Ensembles Clinics

Dr. Morris serves as a clinician, working with music directors and their respective orchestras or ensembles through performance practice, various rehearsal techniques and sectional coaching. These clinics are best suited for ensembles who are preparing for a major performance or competition.

Perfect for instructors in elementary, secondary or collegiate music programs.

NETWORKING 101 for Creatives

Let’s be honest, networking and meeting people at “mixers” can be incredibly intimidating. You have creative ideas and the last thing you want to do is go to a networking event to mingle with people through awkward conversation. However, you do want people to like you and support your art! Well, let me help you!

Work with me and I’ll help you learn how to get over the “awkwardness” of what should be a friendly conversation. I will give you tools needed to say and get what you want. Most business transpires from connecting with other people. Let me help you connect.

Key to Change Logo

5Q with 2 girls

I founded The Key to Change, a Washington State 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to igniting positive change around the world through music and education. The Key to Change has a violin studio in South King County that serves middle and high school students who don’t have access to violin instruction. Students of color and lower economic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. If you live in Renton, Kent, Auburn, Maple Valley, Tukwila, Federal Way or South Seattle, please apply and sign up for lessons.
