I teach all ages and all ability levels and I tailor my curriculum to the needs and goals of each student.
I am a violin and viola teacher born and raised in the Baltimore area. I have been teaching private lessons and group classes for the last eight years and studied both performance and pedagogy at some of the best music schools in the country.

Like most of us, this is not my only job but will work with the student to find a time slot that fits both of our needs.

Connecting development exercises to music that we already enjoy and listen to everyday helps fan the flames that fuel the fire (rhythm, repetition, alliteration...there is certainly a positive correlation). Students will learn to apply classical techniques to all genres of music, especially those of interest whether rock, hip-hop, or top 40.

Although I have listed violin/fiddle and ...
