It was our first lesson today: Kelly took the time to listen to my daughter patiently, even though my daughter stutters and is shy when speaking. I appreciate that she took time to make her feel comfortable.
Richard
Kelly is a great instructor!!! I first saw her perform with Lost Walks and then Juice of the Barley. Her istruction has been great covering these styles plus a lot of classical technique as well. She has really improved my playing.

Kelly is a great violin player and a really good teacher. She can play with begginers like me and help me understand the basics that I need to know.

I believe fundamentally that each student has a unique learning style and benefits from a tailored approach. I do not subscribe to a particular regimented program of study, rather I select the repertoire and etudes to match each student's needs. I believe in choosing both concert music and etudes to challenge individual deficits and work on skills that will apply broadly across the repertoire.

It is my goal to select level-appropriate repertoire to build on strengths, challenge weaknesses, and ensure that young violinists develop strong technical facility that enables them to develop into mature musicians with ease.

About Joshua

I am a professional orchestral violist and recording artist based in Long Beach, California. For the past two seasons I have primarily served as the assistant principal violist of the Pacific Symphony, while enjoying a flourishing freelance career in California and abroad. I have been fortunate to

Private Violin Teacher

I've been teaching violin for about 10 years and have recently received my Doctorate of Musical Arts degree in Performance from CU-Boulder. Having taught as a private teacher for younger students as well as a Teaching Assistant for a String Methods class in my undergrad, I am extremely comfortable working with a wide range of ages and skill levels. I teach using the Suzuki method, as well as basic music theory, note-reading, and other skills based on the student's needs and skill set.

Please note: in order to offer the best possible education for students, I am not offering online lessons for violin beginners who have no previous experience.

However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one."
