Violin, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting, Fiddle, Viola
The best violin teacher in Manhattan. I pride myself on my long years of experience, friendly attitude, never-ending patience but mostly my ability to get along with others while still be an exacting, effective teacher. I work based on results, which is exactly what you will experience after Lesson 1.

Music has the power to uncover the beauty all around us. It can strengthen our bonds with other people. It can raise us out of low, lost places. It can be a filter that brightens our view of our daily lives.
Learning an instrument or any discipline brings to the learner opportunities for growth and improvement. It also provides a space for self-reflection. Rarely in our daily lives are we encouraged to face ourselves- to meet head on with our strengths and weaknesses. Learning any instrument can help reveal these things to us and allow us to address them in a more objective way. We can build discipline, develop problem-solving skills, and find confidence. If learned with the right approach, the instrument can be an external indicator of our internal growth.
In addition to all these benefits, music and playing instruments can be simply light and fun. Whether it is used as an alternative to the stress of daily life, a method for improving ones self, or a pure love of the sound- the rewards are so endless.
In my lessons, my goal is to access music through all of those different lenses. We will learn technical/practical side of playing the instrument, the awareness of one's habits and choices, and the overwhelming beauty within one simple phrase. But to all this, a playful and joyous approach is a must -because life is too serious to be serious about! These are some things that I've found through music, but I realize not everyone finds the same things in music and I am so excited to find out what speaks to you!
I have a Bachelor's Degree in classical performance from the New England Conservatory and I spend much of my time in that genre on both violin and viola. However, I was raised with a lot of fiddle and folk music.

I produce and record my own and others' music which can be heard extensively in film and TV, has been toured internationally, and received international press recognition. I play and teach several instruments and genres of music and take your tastes and learning style into utmost consideration. I always begin with practical exercises to develop technique, then we can focus on playing the music you love.
To vocal students I will teach exercises that develop technique and allows you to explore your voice. I will help you learn to make sounds you love. Singing is created by breath and muscles which we have full access to. Anyone can learn with proper focus, care and practice. I can also help you with recording and microphone technique as this is my area of expertise!
For violin, viola and cello students, I teach a combination the Suzuki Method (learning through ear training) and traditional theory and sight reading. We can also explore fiddling, blues and the foundations of jazz and rock improvisation if you're interested.
For guitar students, you can choose the songs you learn or let me recommend ones appropriate for your skill level. We can incorporate music theory, classical repertoire and sight reading into the process in degrees of your choosing. We can also explore singing while playing, songwriting and recording technique when you feel ready.
I also teach beginner piano, which I recommend for anyone who wants to better understand the mechanics of music. We learn basic classical compositions, exercises, theory, and any song you choose.
Who knows what creativity learning music will inspire? You may eventually write songs and want to explore recording them. Our lessons are held in a top of the line pro-tools recording studio where you can learn recording technique from me at any point.

I am a multi-instrumentalist who has taught for 41 years. I have had both Zakke Wilde and Dave Sabo of Skid Row in lessons, as well as countless music school scholarship students. Many of my students have embarked on performing careers as well as teaching at the school and college level. The lessons are laid back, friendly and above all- helpful. We will study and work on the music of your choice,but, with a slight twist from the traditional, that I incorporate not just playing the song, but to get you the student ready to be able to work out the songs harmony, theory, notation and phrasing on your own. I feel this must be done in order to get a student to be able to perform with others. Lessons should always be about instructing a student to know and utilize every musical concept so that they will be able to perform with others.
Singing, Violin, Cello, Banjo, Fiddle
It is no wonder that someone from the very edge of the North American continent would possess a voice as naturally captivating as the verdant Pacific Northwest. Emma B., young cellist, singer, banjo-player, and fiddler from Qualicum Beach, British Columbia has what bluegrass super-star Laurie Lewis called, a "voice like a laser," clear, effortless, and striking to the core.
The child of two Scottish emigrants, B. is no stranger to the traditional music realm. She learned to play the cello and fiddle amongst seas of fiddlers under Alasdair Fraser's San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers (SFSF) and at music camps around the US. This forced her to develop her own style of folk cello, adapting dance tunes for the instrument and conjuring up her own rhythmic accompaniment style to suit the fiddle repertoire. It was through the SFSF that she grew to love the banjo, and met her to-be teacher, Steve Baughman.
She has studied with other notable innovative cellists, under Natalie Haas at the Berklee College of Music as well as with Tristan Clarridge and Rushad Eggleston, both of Crooked Still. She has appeared on Scottish national television, performed at festivals worldwide, such as the Aberdeen Youth Arts Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Colorado Folks Fest, Celtic Connections, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival, Calgary Folk Festival, Summerfolk, Rockygrass, Wintergrass, and more, and shared the stage with luminaries such as Alasdair Fraser, Bruce Molsky, Back of the Moon, Hanneke Cassel, Peter Rowan, Tim O'Brien, the Steep Canyon Rangers, and more. She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and has taught extensively, both privately and at music camps such as The American Festival of Fiddle Tunes, VoiceWorks, FiddleWorks, and the Sunshine Coast School of Celtic Music.
At the age of eighteen, B. won the Canadian Folk Music Award's Young Performer of the Year after the release of her debut recording, "Pretty Fair Maid." She was also nominated just a couple years later for "Traditional Vocalist of the Year" by the same Canadian Folk Music Awards. B. has recorded 7 albums with various groups and solo, as well as appeared on a wealth of other records over her 10-year career. Her most recent recording endeavor, Wide Awake, an EP she recorded with her band, Joy Kills Sorrow, was met by wide critical acclaim. The first single, a cover of the Postal Service's "Such Great Heights", premiered on American Songwriter's website, and the video for their second single, "Was It You", premiered on CMT.
She presently tours with Joy Kills Sorrow and Nic Gareiss, and makes her home in Brooklyn, NY, where she teaches locally.
Violin, Music Theory, Fiddle
With a Violin Performance degree from Covenant College and a Musicology semester study from the University of Oxford, I provide my students with creative and thoughtful instruction. I come from a classical background with formal Suzuki training. As an native Appalachian, I am also well versed in traditional and celtic fiddling. Curriculum can be tailored around your desires and goals, but always with great attention to technique.
