I began playing violin in addition to viola in high school. I enjoy the faster response of the violin and the way its higher pitches can soar over the top of the other strings, though I still prefer to play the 'inner' parts in an ensemble.

I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

Fresh out of my Master's degree in Violin Performance from UMass, Amherst.

Music has always been one of Atlanta's claims to fame. Great talent has emerged from this city, and certainly makes it shine: Usher, Toni Braxton, OutKast, The Black Crowes, Collective Soul, John Mayer and Ludacris have all come from Atlanta's music scene.
For those who want to get started with music, popular instruments include the guitar, piano, drums and the violin. The violin in particular poses challenges that arenât seen with other instruments; for example, it needs to be played at a precise angle that can be difficult for beginners to learn. In order to ensure proper playing habits, taking private violin lessons with a great teacher is necessary.
