When You're Evil
For my beginning students I use a combination of the Suzuki Method, All for Strings or Essential Elements, and Harvey Whistler's Scales in First Position.
Materials used for advanced students varies.
This instrument holds true to so much that occurs naturally in nature. The science behind the instrument is so fascinating, and I love to teach with that thought in mind! There is a reaction to every action you make!
I enjoy teaching classical styles, but also
in a few symphony orchestras on the west coast Including the Orange County H.S. of the Arts Philharmonic, and the Spokane Honors Symphony. I have been involved in the creating of Composition Clubs, and String Quartets as well as String Trios in the Pacific Northwest.
My main focus with the violin is in a folk pop band called Saints Apollo, where I perform and arrange string parts with Kaitlin Grady, an accomplished local cellist. I am also heavily involved in the rock/pop/indie music scene in Raleigh, and I frequently provide session work in and out of the studio for local artists.
