*** Lesson Details ***
In a very calm, easy going atmosphere you can expect to laugh a bit, as it is called 'playing' music! You will have an understanding of how to read & play a minimum 3 songs each month, & will be picking up enough music theory as it applies to your instrument each week to feel confident & inspired to continue on as far as you desire. We will learn how to 'play well with others' in informal as well as more structured gatherings every few months, with no pressure, only compassion & encouragement.
For those wishing to join in the fun of playing bluegrass music, we will start out with technique exercises, scales, basic melodies & accompaniment patterns to prepare you to learn this unique & exciting style of American music. There are many gatherings in the area called 'Pickin' Parties' that I want to get you ready to participate in as soon as is humanly possible.
If you are one of those brave souls undertaking the lovely but challenging fretless instrument, the violin, my main focus is to get you started with the all the necessary basic techniques - holding the instrument & bow correctly, getting the best possible tone & pitch using efficiency & accuracy, mixed with a great deal of ear training & heart.
Specific songs you'd like to learn? Your reward for accomplishing what I deem necessary on whichever instrument you've chosen will be for us to listen to your desired piece & writing it out in either or tablature or standard notation.

Hello and thanks for checking out my, 'I love me' paragraph ; ).
But really this is about YOU. It's about how my teaching and life experiences may help you along your personal musical journey.
I've learned a great deal in my 20 years of teaching;
- keep it fun
- change it up
It's my belief that music fundamentals are critical and we will create a solid musical foundation by learning the language, understanding the critical issues of timing & rhythm, and reading.
I enjoy working with all ages but specialize in children and adults that act like children!
Stay a child! Learn something new.
What are you waiting for?!
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
