Clare B.

Madison, WI

About Clare

I grew up as a Suzuki violin student in rural Washington state. I received a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Central Washington University. I then moved to London for an academic year to study one-on-one with a violin teacher there. Following my time in London I lived in Seattle, WA and performed as a freelancer and also taught extensively. I am now working on my final year of a Master of Music degree at UW-Madison. *** Lesson Details *** My teaching method draws on the Suzuki method, but also includes ideas and repertoire from other methods and influences. My favorite parts of the Suzuki method are the emphasis on learning by ear and the belief that music should be taught to improve people's lives not just to produce competition-winning professional musicians. I ...

Lyle has been a great instructor so far. He has taught me how to think about and practice guitar better. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge that he shares in an easy-going way. I feel better prepared and confidant that I can reach my desired skill level, rather than it seeming like a fantasy. Highly recommended.

About Lisa

I have loved music all my life! I started playing the cello I'm 5th grade and I've been playing ever since. I studied music education in college for 2 years before I transferred to Le Cordon Bleu to pursure baking and cake decorating and to keep music a passion. In high school and college I excelled in music theory and ear training. Teaching is a passion of mine and I want to use my love of music to inspire others the way my teachers and professors inspired me.
