I love playing and teaching violin and can't wait to share my passion with you!

I tailor my approach to each student. Some students require more technical work, some require interpretive. Both are fascinating and can be taught with structure and clarity.

Private Violin Teacher

I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

Stephanie is an amazing musician, mentor and human being. She teaches with an upbeat and natural ease-- building confidence, friendship, and a love for the violin.

My daughter describes Stephanie as very helpful, kind, happy, fun, caring, funny- and "inspiring".

My daughter had three years violin training from elementary school, prior to her first lesson with Stephanie-- and just after a few lessons with Stephanie, she went from enjoying the violin-- to having a passion for the violin!

Thank you Stephanie for all you share and instill in her.
Kelly
My daughter has been taking violin lessons from Stephanie for over 5 years. She is a wonderful teacher with a wealth of knowledge. She has a bright and joyful personality that makes her lessons enjoyable. She is an effective teacher that has grown my daughter as a musician. Stephanie makes teaching seem effortless which is a skill that I've rarely seen and has amazed me many times over the years. Even when she's pointing out mistakes, it is done in a way that is always positive. We love Stephanie as a teacher and a person and are blessed to have her in our lives.
Veronica
Stephanie is very patient and seems to care a lot about the students she teaches. I got really lucky.

Where do I begin. Kathleen is extremely patient with me and very encouraging. I have loved the violin for a long time. However, over the years I would get discouraged and quit. With Kathleen, I look forward to our sessions. She's very knowledgeable and I like that she will play along with me and send audio clips that reinforce the place where I struggle. I have learned so much in such a short period. She's a keeper! I'm truly blessed to have her in my (music) life. Thank you so much Kathleen.

I attribute this to Hannah’s gifted skills as a teacher and her ability to tap into the unique talent and potential in each student.
