Jane Young on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Jane! I'm a professional violinist, have a Bachelor's Degree in Music and Violin Performance, as well as I have extensive experience in session playing.

My experience includes performing and recording violin for songs, shows, wedding events. Nowadays I work in Swiss National Circus Knie, a violinist/singer.
I can play written sheet music or improvise your original part.

My process usually consists of listening to your track and understanding of your wishes about the violin part.
Then I write melody from part to part of a track, record it and send you a violin solo track and a mix. One revision is fine, then 15usd/hour.

I'd love to hear about your project and really like to help you to make it better. Contact me and we’ll make your project perfect together.

    Jane is highly professional and has the most beautiful sound i can imagine. She played the main theme on one of my ambient songs on electric violin and provided me with several variations to choose from, which was a bit tough - because they were all simply BRILLIANT! She delivered extremely fast and was very careful to make sure that I got what i wanted. From now on, i will ask Jane first when i need a solo violin and then just pray that she will be available.

    Jane is a genuine professional. She works fast and provides quality recordings. The violin parts that I received from her brought my production to a whole new level. If you need high-quality recordings from a dedicated musician, Jane is the one to go to.

    This is my second time working with Jane and it was equally as pleasant an experience. Jane is timely, courteous and professional. She also brings a unique style to my songs with her interpretations and revisions have never been necessary. She is certainly my go-to violinist and I can see myself having her play on songs not intended to have violin just to see what her melodic sensibilities can enrich. Certainly recommended and can't wait for our next collaboration.
