I have been teaching individual and group lessons for 12+ years. Many of my students have won trophies at the Granquist music competition and also play in local youth orchestras. My own youth string ensemble plays publicly at many popular local venues several times a year. I enjoy exposing my students to the finer points of being a professional musician such as the camaraderie, team work, creativity (creating harmonies, tailoring arrangements to fit student’s level) and of course, stage presence. I am very proud of my students. It is so gratifying to see their confidence build with each new skill they master. *** Lesson Details *** My approach to teaching is to combine fundamentals with “adventure.” I encourage students to experiment with their instrument and have quite a few budding ...

I began my violin studies at the age of 6. I am fortunate enough to have had very many great teachers in my life. Since I have received so many different perspectives of teaching in my studies, I have seen firsthand several teaching methods. This molded me into not only a good player, but a good teacher as well. I love what I do and Violin is my life. I have been teaching privately for about 7 years. I have been professionally trained to teach all levels of violin playing. Although I am teaching, I still strive to never stop learning. I received my Bachelor's Degree in violin performance from Kennesaw State University School of Music in Atlanta, GA. During my studies at Kennesaw State I have performed as concertmaster of KSU Symphony Orchestra for 3 years. In January 2011 I traveled to
The beauty of the violin comes with the knowledge that nothing is perfect, while the embrace of imperfection collides with the pursuit of our own ideal of perfect. The two create a contrast that challenges the mind and body to approximate with perfection. Constantly refining our ideals to new levels of what good sounds like to our own ear. A truly remarkable instrument that reflects the struggle between the heart and mind, but also the unparalleled awe when the two work together.

Students are taught the Suzuki method in combination with familiar contemporary music. As students develop the fundamental and technical skills in classical training, contemporary music may be simultaneously incorporated into lessons according to the student's interest.
