About Kaitlin

I have been teaching private string lessons in the Albany, NY area for the past 8 years. I attended the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY where I earned both my Bachelor's (2008) and Master's (2010) degrees in Music K-12 Education with a concentration in Violin. My teaching philosophy involves adjusting strategies and methods to meet the needs of students with varying abilities. I use a few different methods of string instruction based upon the age level and ability of each student. A couple of my strengths as a private lesson teacher are my high level of patience and ability to guide students towards success.

About Christopher

Let me introduce myself! I have been playing the violin for about 20 years, and have always know that the violin is an extension of myself! I have an incredible passion for music, and would like to inspire all of my students to share that passion.

I've been teaching violin lesson since my high school graduation and throughout my conservatory career. I've taught students as young as 5 as well as adult students looking to learn something new. I was a volunteer at the Hamilton Hill Center for the Arts and helped create the only opportunity for students in the community to learn the violin.

I studied Violin Performance at the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, MA and graduated in June of 2012. My former teachers include Michael Emery and Mark Lakirovich.
