I've played the violin since I was four, have a Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance from Indiana University - Bloomington, a well-known music school, and have extensive experience teaching and playing all styles from Baroque, Classical, Romantic periods as well as folk, country, rock and blues genres. *** Lesson Details *** I'm friendly, patient, enthusiastic, positive and get along with almost any kind of student.

My passion for teaching is as strong as my desire for personal musical growth. I have been teaching students of all ages in both individual and group settings for over five years. I believe that a one-on-one teacher to student relationship is the best way for the student to grow not only in the subject being taught, but emotionally as well.

Out of all instruments, the sound of the violin is the closest to the human voice.

My training includes reading music notation, lead sheets, and playing by ear. All of these are skills that you can learn depending on what your goals are. A combination of these skills combined with technique on violin will give you a foundation of music knowledge that will serve you regardless of what style of music you want to play. Styles that I have studied specifically are: Classical, Irish, Bluegrass, Rock and Symphonic Metal. In addition to playing violin, I write and arrange music. My song "The Burning Plain" ...
