In violin lessons, I strive to push my students to play as professionally as possible while stretching themselves creatively. Beginning-Intermediate students will work out of the Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books in order to develop a solid technical foundation before branching out into broader repertoire. I make sure that lessons progress steadily and that students are comfortable with technique and reading before advancing to new skills. With intermediate-advanced students I work on solo/duo pieces as well as more theoretically minded practices. I try to instill a basic knowledge of music theory into all of my violin students since that can be a key asset when learning music for UIL competitions or auditions of any kind. I'm also specialized in a number of non-classical violin styles and am happy to work with students towards any stylistic goal that they have.
I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later. I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well. While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in Austin, ...

Beginner violin lessons start with an emphasis on physical interaction with the instrument and reading music in the treble clef. Students will soon read and play simple melodies from the recommended music list. Students will set goals to learn a piece of music that interests them. With guided practice and technical advice, I will make sure that the students reach their goals.
For the higher level violin lessons, I will offer guidance with any solo or ensemble piece that students are currently practicing. Also, I will encourage students to pick a piece of music or style of music that interests them as a goal to work towards.

I come from a large family of visual, literary, and performing artists. My mother, Clyde W. taught me from age three until I went on to study at the New England Conservatory’s Preparatory School. I have extensive training and performance experience. Alongside my musical endeavors, I have always pursued visual art and the written word, incorporating these mediums into my expressive and teaching practices. I also incorporate physical and biological metaphors into my lessons, bringing basic yoga in where it is useful. I strive to offer a wide breadth of information and ways of thinking as I encourage each student to discover and hone what is innately theirs, using music as the ultimate medium. BA in Graphic Design, Yale University MM in Violin Performance from Stony Brook University AD
