Every student is unique, so I will tailor the lessons to you and make it fun! I'm passing on to you the training I received from the very best master teachers of the violin. Stringed instruments are challenging, but I believe in enjoying making music at every level, while establishing a strong foundation in good technique. For learning fundamentals of music theory and ear training, we will play various rhythm and improvisational games. I have extensive background in European classical music, and I've also done quite a bit of improvisation, some fiddling, and electric violin and viola. Whether you want to be the next Joshua Bell or the next Lindsey Stirling, I can help you improve your playing. I will help you sing, dance and tell a story through your violin or viola.

About Gloria

Born into a musical family in 1966, I have extensive performance experience as a classical violinist and violist, and I've been composing my own music since 2000. I am very grateful to have studied with some of the finest teachers of violin, viola and chamber music, and I graduated in 1990 from th

Gloria has been a wonderful and inspiring teacher over a period of very formative years for me as a violinist. We first worked together for all 4 years of my undergraduate violin performance degree at Mills College from 2010-14, and Gloria helped me develop a lasting appreciation for listening deeply and developing focus for small details. We worked together on everything from solo Bach and Hindemith sonatas to concertos, chamber music, and orchestral excerpts. She has been a lasting influence in my life as a musician, and I will continue to return for musical and creative advice over the years even when I live far away.

After studying piano for almost 10 years I decided to learn a new instrument and began taking violin lessons when I was 16 years old. In spite of being told that I was “too old” to learn to play the violin, I continued practicing and one year later I joined my first orchestra. In 2011 I moved to Bo

"Great teacher, great person

Michelle is really a tremendous violin teacher. She is very passionate about music, positive, and encouraging. When I first met her she immediately began tailoring lesson plans to my current abilities. She was genuinely interested in my progress and generous with her time. If she said she would print out certain music or scales for my lessons, she did, and she always notified me well in advance if scheduling conflicts arose. She is a lifelong musician and very professional, but in lessons she still maintains a friendly, relaxed environment that encourages learning. I was realistically challenged by her, and her passion supplemented my own desire to improve.

Michelle is also a conducting student and has lots of experience with music that a strictly violin-focused teacher may not have. She is full of interesting knowledge about music theory, conducting, music history, etc., and was always willing to share when I was curious. She also let me know about upcoming music events around Houston, sometimes ones at which she herself was conducting, and was generous enough to provide me tickets if she was able to get them ahead of time. She simply loves music and wants to share her passion with her students.

Thanks, Michelle!"
