About Benjamin

I was 3 years old when I started playing the Violin. Since then, I have played a number of different instruments such as the Piano, Organ, Clarinet, Accordion, and Banjo. When I was 6 I started writing music. Since then it has always been my desire to be a conductor and song writer. I attended a private University (Evangel University in Springfield Missouri) and received my B.A. in Music with a Minor in Musical Composition. While at Evangel, I had the wonderful opportunity to enhance my musicianship through academia and professional experience. As such, I became extremely proficient musical theory and performance. I have also received a B.S. in Kinesiology and the Physical Sciences, which has helped me to realize how important music is in my life today. Music is more than just notes, and ...

Ben is very professional, respectful and knowledgeable! He always starts the lesson on time and ends on time (which is very important for our busy lives)! He keeps Megan (10 years) interested in playing and is always very encouraging when correcting a mistake! We are so glad we chose him to begin this musical journey with her!

About Courtney

Hello! My name is Courtney M. and I have played the violin for over twenty years. Nearly all of my formal training has been in classical technique, but I also play fiddle music. I have experience tutoring violin, viola, cello, and bass.

*** Lesson Details ***
First and foremost, I believe violin lessons should be fun. No student is going to want to play the violin if he or she associates it with a nagging and unpleasant teacher. I do stop students from doing things incorrectly so that it does not become a habit or cause injury, but I can do this gently and find things the student enjoys playing so that each lesson is an overall positive experience. We play games and mix up activities so that no lesson or practice session involves working on only one thing for thirty minutes. I do ...
