I have been enjoying lessons with Ryan a lot. He is great with giving encouragement, pointing out blind spots. Working with him is not just learning the music and instrument, it's learning about yourself and the way you relate to music.

Teaching is one of my greatest joys! All ages are welcome to study with me. My calling is to work with all students' interests and goals, such as preparing for auditions or playing your favorite video game soundtrack. I'm happy to work on pieces or songs the student is passionate about! :)

Lessons will prioritize an understanding of the relationship between anatomy and sound.

My name is Araya and I have over ten years of experience playing the violin. Aside from teaching, I am a songwriter and a musician. I am also learning to play the guitar and piano.

I have played in local orchestras such as The Youth Symphony of Southern Oregon.

I specialize in teaching beginner violin. Laying a solid foundation is super important in my lessons. I will teach you how to read music if you don’t already know how to. We will also cover music theory, scales, and different finger and bowing techniques.

Send me a message and lets get started!
