*** Lesson Details ***
I treat each student as an individual since everyone is different. For some I might use a traditional approach, some just the Suzuki approach and others a combination of techniques. Whatever produces the best results. My goal is not to make strictly classical musicians but to train students to love music and carry this love throughout life. My repertoire consists of everything including traditional, Suzuki, Disney, Showtunes, etc. I have taken students to perform little concerts at the White House, schools, hospitals and concert halls to get the real feel of performing. I view lessons as a three way relationship between myself, the student and the parent so that the parent is not left out. I even have a small group called Musical Magic which incorporates magic into music. I feel I am laid back but am able to accomplish my goal through positive reinforcement. Every child or student wants to feel good about his/her playing. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible.

My name is Cheng-Yin (Janine). I am a native of Taiwan, who earned an undergraduate degree in violin performance in Taiwan, further completed a Master's Degree at Peabody Institute, and a Doctorate Degree at Louisiana State University. My minors are piano and conducting. I loved playing chamber and orchestral music, including playing for LSU faculty chamber recitals and serving as the assistant concertmaster of the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra.

I have a vision to guide students to enjoy playing music, to discover their inner potential and help them develop their musical talents.

Hello, I'm Sam, and I've been playing the viola for 13 years, and teaching for a total of 4-5 years. I'm a recent graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, but I'm a native born South Dakotan. I'll tell you a little bit about myself as a teacher.
I love sharing what I've learned with students, and I'm particularly interested in teaching students what they want to work on, but also giving them the tools that they need to succeed. I teach from either a traditional standpoint, or from Suzuki books in order to teach technical facility.
I don't provide instruments or the accessories that go along with it, so please be prepared to have those things. I'll also provide a list of music that you should order after our first lesson.
I always hope to open the eyes of my students and teach that confidence and hard work can not only progress them in learning music but with most skills in life. Most importantly I never want my students to feel that music is a burden! I want them to always enjoy themselves when they are practicing or performing.
