I currently teach students from beginner (pre-twinkle) to advanced levels.
Whether your interest is classical music, fiddle or contemporary, you can be sure you will start your journey off right. First you will learn the basics, which apply to all types of violin playing, and then you can specialize in any genre you wish after that.
You will gradiently learn everything you need to know, becoming skilled at each new task, and never being overwhelmed by an avalanche of unimportant information. My goals for you are based upon three things:
1. Working towards your goals
2. Increasing your strengths
3. Strengthening your weaknesses.
Everybody has weakenesses and I work to improve yours with both education and practice (You can only learn how to practice something correctly if you know hot to do it correctly, or fix what is wrong with it.)
Expect to play the violin on your first day, play a song withing the first few weeks, and get to intermediate level in one year or less. All of this, of course, takes practice, so please plan on making some time ...
I do not use one single method when I teach. Depending on the student, I usually combine Suzuki and Traditional methods.
If you cancel your lesson less than an hour before its scheduled time, the lesson will be counted as attended. If the lesson is canceled at least an hour before its scheduled time, it will be rescheduled or cancelled without it being counted as attended.
I believe in the individual's music experience! I believe in teaching strong technique, no matter what style of music is played. As technique is developed, I enjoy helping my students embrace their individual music interests, be it hip hop, jazz, classical, fiddling, tango, or creating their own styles and compositions!
I want to provide students with the opportunity to do and achieve anything they desire with music and become well-rounded musicians. My goal is to enable students to make music independently and become self-sufficient learners. As a result, students can enjoy music for their own playing and/or choose to become professional musicians.

The violin is one of the most empowering musical instruments to learn, and has frequently been the subject of many music research studies. It has been found that those who learn to play the violin have also benefited in other areas of their lives. Those who play the violin demonstrate enhanced concentration, as well as increased math, memory and reading skills. Although the violin is known best for its use in classical music, it has become a far more versatile instrument that has also been used in country, folk and even popular rock. Whether your goal is to play Beethoven, an Irish jig, or a lively fiddle tune, taking lessons can help you become a well-rounded violinist.
