My main goal is to share my love of music with my students. I welcome anyone, regardless of ability level or desired pace. I enjoy teaching motivated students who want to learn and will take the initiative to practice on their own.
Lessons consist of many different aspects, including: solfege and ear training, technique, musical games, phrasing and dynamics, music theory, mind/body awareness while playing, duets, and bow distribution, just to name a few. In addition to traditional repertoire, the method books I use include The Suzuki Method, Kaleidoscopes by Elise Winters, Fiddler’s Philharmonic, Solos for Young Violinists, Marc O’Connor Fiddle Method and many others. I am currently certified through the Suzuki Associaiton to teach Volumes 1-3 of the Suzuki Method. From Classical to Bluegrass, Celtic, Rock and Pop music, I am open to teaching various genres and will offer my knowledge and experience to help find the best book or music to suit your needs. My goal is to work with students’ aspirations while making lessons productive, creative, and fun!
