Viola is my primary instrument! I started playing continuously in 6th grade and it was the instrument on which I concentrated in college. I love the rich sound of the viola and the inner harmonies we get to play in ensembles.
*** Studio Equipment *** I teach in the Education Building of a Church that has individual classrooms, where lessons will be held, all of which are off a common area where parents can wait during the lesson. *** Travel Equipment *** I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate. *** Specialties *** I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public

I teach my students the Russian Method of playing so they can play with confidence and I help my student develop their musical artistry.
Teaching Style: In my lessons I emphasize both technical skill and musical creativity. I use the Russian Method to instill my students with good technique and tone and I make sure that my students are confident on their scales and etudes. I try to chose pieces for my students that encourage artistic expression and I aim to help my students develop their own musical creativity. Musical Experience: I teach and perform on the violin, viola, and cello. I was a principal in the Gwinnett County Youth Symphony Orchestra, assistant principal in the Kendall Youth Symphony Orchestra, and an assistant principal in the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra.

“My daughter is naturally very shy. After taking lessons with Ms. Jen, she's really come out of her shell. I can tell the difference in her confidence level already, and her grades have even gone up."
